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

The owner is such a idiot... He thinks that he has a little harem of girls there... He doesn't realize this is America not the country that he comes from... This is America jerk so start treating your employees like people not the woman in your country.... Respect goes a long way..... Get your own coffee.... I'm done going there...... More

This place reminds me of a breakfast spot on Brielle NJ. The food is fresh and excellent, portions are huge. Without a doubt some of the best pancakes I have ever had. I had pumpkin and pecan pancakes, with side of turkey sausage. The omelettes are huge. I wish the coffee was a bit stronger, but otherwise no complaints. A... More

A good friend of mine used to work there as a waitress but she didn't stay long due to the rude way they treated her . Owner called her a b**** at least 25 times within ten min and called her stupid. She is far from stupid and too sweet to be treated so unkind . She also said that... More
