Everything I have eaten there has been delicious! The waitstaff are friendly. Go early to get a good seat especially during a race week.

Had breakfast here first thing upon arriving on the Island. Great food, good prices. The place is nothing fancy, gives the feel of the old downtown pancake house.

We were running a little late for breakfast and found everyone done serving. The Pancake House's breakfast was very good, timely and filling. The waitstaff was very friendly and prompt. The prices were also very affordable-especially considering this is a vacation destination.

We ate a wonderful soup and sandwich lunch (tomato bisque--yum!). They also have ice cream but it is Dean's, so nothing special.

The manager and waitress staff were lovely to us - even when we lost one of our party and it was busy busy busy. Did not make us feal lime idiots.

You have to learn when to come as it is often crowded and there is a long wait. Either come early or put your name on the list they will tell you about how long the wait is and then you can enjoy some of the other good shops at Bay Harbor while you are waiting. The fresh squeezed orange... More

Loved the Western omelet...very delicious. My husband had the cinnamon pancakes. He didn't particularly like them because of just having cinnamon seasoning they had cinnamon chips. Reasonably priced. Good service.

I worked on the island and this was always a favorite, so I brought friends for breakfast and I will never go back. When we arrived we were told we couldn't sit at a table, so the gal moves us, then while ordering our server had a bad attitude and when we asked for no onions on something the server... More

It was a good breakfast place, but in my opinion, it was a little expensive for not much food at all. The food we did get was good, but again, strangely small portions. We had a skillet and an order of pecan pancakes.

We ate breakfast here several times during our stay on the Island. The place has excellent food. The omelets and pancakes were delicious. The servers are very fast and pleasant. The only complaint I have is that the coffee is terribly strong. I definitely recommend this restaurant for breakfast and will be returning this summer.
