The concierge at out hotel recommended this restaurant as one of the more affordable restaurants on the island. We didn't have to wait for a table since it was off-season when we went. It was pretty fairly priced compared to the average breakfast places. Our service was fast and our waitress was friendly and nice. Our food was good and... More

The restaurant was really busy but we had great customer service and had a wonderful breakfast. The food was hot and our drinks were never empty! Perfect way to start the day.

Randomly went to the pancake house for lunch because we were so hungry and it seemed to have no wait like other restaurants around. We sat down and it took forever for us to be served. People that came after us were already eating before we got our drinks. I ordered a chicken tender basket and the chicken tasted old... More

After waiting for a table and the food we did not feel it was worth the wait. Very crowded environment and the food was not that good.

We visit the Island every fall and we always have breakfast here. In 2012, I had Gourmet Pumpkin Bread French Toast - the best French Toast EVER!! They didn't have it in 2013, hope it returns for 2014 - I still think about it - YUMMY!! :-)

We eat breakfast whenever we are on the island. You get alot of food for the price. Great omlettes and pancakes. The oatmeal is good also.

After many dubious dietary encounters on Mackinaw Island, the Pancake House was a godsend! I loved the breakfast foods, my culinary compatriot raved about their grilled cheese with toasted parmesan on the bread. We both look forward to returning in the future.

Wife and I ordered the buttermilk pancakes. Wow - what a stack! They were very good, as was the bacon, orange juice and coffee. Good place for breakfast. Pleasant, efficient service. Can you eat your full stack of pancakes??? We couldn't! Very good, but just too much for us. Good luck!

The Pancake House is a small restaurant on Main that serves yummy breakfast items. The restaurant itself is clean, and the staff are friendly and attentive. We arrived just after 10am and were promptly seated. There is only one unisex bathroom off the kitchen area, and there is often quite a wait for it. While waiting I chatted to the... More

Good, simple, affordable menu options and food. Nothing spectacular, but on an island that is very expensive, this is one of the most reasonable options available. Vegetarians and kids have options as well. $35 for four of us for lunch and we had all we wanted. Not haute cuisine but, after all, it is a pancake house.
