A nice breakfast spot, huge plates of food (I could only eat about half of mine). It was by no means spectacular-tasting and I thought it was a touch expensive but it had all of your run-of-the-mill breakfast stuff and the staff was friendly.

Slow service but not crazy slow. Had a couple of meals that tasted a little like detergent. Had a couple omelets that were pretty good. I know a good breakfast. This one is not that great. Serviceable, but not great. Not the cleanest place either.

After getting up at 7 a.m., driving 1.5 hrs to catch the 9 a.m. ferry to the island, we needed breakfast. We found a great place, Pancake House! This is not a fancy place, but both our meals were delicious, reasonably priced & the service was great!

The bacon skillet was to die for - loaded with bacon! Wife had french toast and it was very good also. Our server was very nice and helpful. Would definitely go back - I still have dreams of all that bacon.

Sunday morning breakfast was enjoyable with good service. I recommend staying away from the coffee unless you like bitter after taste.

We had breakfast here the first day and it was just ok. The service was great but the food was very overpriced and just ok. We had the pancakes, mine were blueberry and my wife's were strawberry. They were very large and we couldn't finish them. I think almost 35 bucks for two orders of pancakes and two coffees is... More

Breakfast was good, but not great. Average breakfast food at resort town prices. We had a better breakfast at both Seabiscuit and Chuckwagon.

I did not enjoy the food but hubby liked the omelet. Real maple syrup cost $4 to use? Bathroom is really a staff bathroom ,very small, one at a time. I did see canned gravy while I was back there ( not good ) it is not hard to make from scratch and way better tasting. Could do better here... More

I believe this is the only restaurant that serves breakfast all day, which is good because we didn't get to the island until 11 am, just after the other restaurants quit serving breakfast. It was a healthy portion of food for your money. Your basic diner-type breakfast choices.
