GOOD AMOUNT OF GOOD FOOD

It surprised me how big the place is and it does hold a lot of people. It's busy. But it's big, they can handle it. The portions are big too. More than I wanted to eat. But it's good. I had eggs hash browns sausage and toasted home made bread. Portions were large. It's a good place to eat.

I was here twice for dinner at the beginning and end of a rafting trip. It's across the street from the hunt lodge. First trip took a half hour to get waited on, sat at the bar. Had a hamburger and salad, food ok. Second trip worse, waitress took my order, never came back to see how I was doing... More

The food is good but not spectacular... Maybe we just got there on an off day. The service was slow, they didn't have enough staff to accommodate the people. I tried the pancakes, it's only called The Pancake House, they were dry and not out if this world. They are just bigger then your head so maybe that's why people... More

Been going to McCall for years. This place has been here forever. But...the last few visits have been terrible. The last trip this weekend was the end of our visits to this place. The service has been consistently getting worse. Don't know why but wow. Our group of 10..had to get up and leave. And on the way out I... More

If you are looking for a place that serves BIG portions of breakfast basics, this place is for you. The Pancake House is physically huge and very busy; don't go if you're in a hurry because the service can be slow at times. On a recent visit with friends and family, I ordered a plate-sized, sour dough wheat pancake with... More

Large portions. Have gone twice. We have eaten the huckleberry crepes, chicken fried steak, the #1 ,corned beef hash, biscuits and gravy and the plate sized cinnamon roll. All items were superior and served hot. Service was fast, booths were comfortable.

This place looks like someone's log cabin home that goes on forever. Besides having a large restaurant, it has an amazing all year round Christmas store, leather goods store and small antique area to browse if you have to wait. The wait is worth it. Food is great, large portions, quick service and pancakes that do not disappoint. Family friendly,... More

We were there for breakfast. The food was good, portions were generous. My wife ordered a cinnamon roll. It was fresh-baked and still hot, and was I-kid-you-not, the size of the plate. We got a box and at off that bugger for two more days! Lots to choose from on the menu. The restaurant interior is interesting and picturesque. We... More
