Was looking for a breakfast place an hour into our trip to Ohio and we found this spot on accident... so glad we did!! We were here around 1 on a Friday afternoon so it wasn't busy at all. I ordered 2 eggs, ham, hash browns and a side of biscuits and gravy and have not even one single complaint!... More

We tried it on a Notre Dame home game weekend...the place was packed but they did a very well, considering the circumstances. Food is good, portions a little large, so went with senior portions on second trip. Nice family operation, definately try it.

Very good food and service. We looked at the reviews on this site, and overlooked the obvious disgruntled employee comments. Nice to find a nice , clean, and friendly place in the middle of the chain restaurants. We'll return, as we go through this area often.

We stopped for breakfast on our way out of town for the first time at this restaurant in the 11+ years visiting Notre Dame. Wish I had started years ago. The food was amazing. As were the portions! And the wait staff was very nice. Overall excellent!

We hit American Pancake for breakfast before leaving town. It was exactly what I want. A good ol' fashion pancake house that has a good selection. We got a ridiculous amount of food for the price. Everything was good and the waitstaff was attentive.

This is a great place to eat for breakfast. The staff is very nice and you get great quality food at a decent price. You will always leave full!

Restaurant is nasty, owner is a Greek that watches his staff on camera while he sits in the kitchen area smoking. Treats his staff like dirt makes them serve his coffee to him with his one pack of Splenda, makes the servers sit for at least 30 off the clock after the scheduled time, takes food from the bus tubs...

I met some friends for breakfast, before shopping. I think there was 1 waitress, kind of felt worry for her. It is your typical breakfast joint. I got the pancakes…they were good, just took a long time. They were good and priced right, just wish we would have gotten out of there in a decent amount of time. If I... More

You will not leave this place hungry! There is usually a wait on football weekends and when events are going on at Saint Mary's and Notre Dame, but this place is great. It should be on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. The fresh squeezed orange juice is great. Their omelets could feed a family. The service is quick as there... More

I would never set foot in this establishment, dont care if it was the best food you ever had and it was free. The owner Nick Kladis, puts on a good front as a very friendly, all around nice guy when in fact he is sick and twisted. He has been accused of, and recently found guilty by a jury... More
