Wednesday, we had a late breakfast or early lunch at this pancake house and they have more than pancakes. My husband had 5 pancakes, 2 patties and 3 scramble eggs. Enjoyed it So much he had to tell the chief how delicious every thing was. We will go back again, good value for your money.

We just had a very good meal that was affordable and our waitress was good. However, we coud see the kitchen from where we were sitting. The other waitress twice staked plates of food on top of each other. I'm glad it wasnt my club sandwich on the bottom. She was constantly running her fingers through her hair too. Don't... More

I've been here many times and have never been disappointed. The homey atmosphere and friendly staff are very welcome. I can highly recommend the eggs Benedict. The value of the meal is one of if not the best in town.

Same owner, just keeping P.C. :( This restaurant will not disappoint. Coffee cup stays full, kind service and a delicious meal! And it is inexpensive! I recommend the French toast combo, which includes juice! Go... What are you waiting for? :)

Uncle Tom's is a great breakfast place. You always get a lot of food for a reasonable price. It has the classic diner feel. Unfortunately, many times when I've gone the wait staff is a little slow at getting the things you ask for, or giving refills. Good food, but I wish the staff was more attentive.

We go here for breakfast as a family frequently. It's kinda hidden away. The food and service are great. It is small and crowded but still worth it.

We eat breakfast here at least once a month. The value is outstanding and the food is very good. The waitresses always play with our daughter and your coffee cup is never half empty. I recommend the Hawaiian omelette and just about every meal comes with hashbrowns (which said daughter will devour) and pancakes (more devouring). If you're looking for... More

Great breakfast restaurant, do not let the name scare you away. Eggs how you like them, friendly service, always crowded on weekend mornings so be prepared for a short wait.
