Your typical breakfast diner - good prices, hearty portions, several options, etc. All the food at our table was gobbled right up, so it must've been good! Pretty small, so prepare yourself to probably wait for a table if you have a large group :)

This place is small but mighty! The breakfast is amazing (sausage skillet!!!). The staff is great, the portions are huge, big enough to share. Everything was delish!!! The fruit was fresh and wonderful. We ate here twice because it was so good.

A nice variety of items from which to choose. Located on the main street, It seemed to be very popular. It provided us a meal around 2:00. The service was quite slow.(the only negative), but the food was good.

The pancake house is a great place to get food, it's not usually crowded like other places and the food is good. The staff are super helpful, one of the waitresses overheard that my son had thrown his sippy cup into the lake, and she offered to wash it for me in the back.

We had originally planned to eat at another restaurant but it closed early so we had to make a new plan. My daughter is very picky so most places didn't suit her. She was wanting chicken tenders and finally decided that she would eat here. Oddly enough, she didn't order chicken tenders but the sausage skillet. I ordered the bacon... More

My wife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary with a trip to Mackinaw Island. Debated on weather to have breakfast in Mackinaw city or wait till we got to the Island. Glad we waited and went to the Pancake House. My omelet was very good and my wife gave me a taste of her banana bread french toast which was... More

Didn't think it was worth the hype. Had to wait in line for about 30 minutes and then spent $50 for two breakfasts. Eggs were undercooked, I had over-easy and my wife had sunny-side up and the whites on both were runny. Certainly not worth the time and cost. Maybe the pancakes are better, but I'll never know, as I... More

I ordered the grilled cheese on rye. NOT good at all. Only ate about 3 bites. My mom and sister in law didn't like their omelet or sandwich either. Of all places I ate at while visiting Mackinaw this was my least favorite. Decent service.

My wife and I each ordered one of their skillet dishes and were both surprised at the size, quantity, quality and service. Would definitely return.

My husband and I were visiting Mackinac Island during the Lilac Festival and decided to go to the Pancake House one morning for breakfast. It's a small place - very cozy. For those who mind if others bump your chair, maybe take a pass or a Xanax. Pancakes are breakfast, if you ask my husband. His top choices: buttermilk, blueberry... More
