Before visiting a read numerous reviews about how great the food is. We arrived waiting for a table for 8 to be seated. The wait was one hour because the restaurant was crowded. We ordered the famous orange juice, but because they freshly squeeze the juice it tasted like pulp and water with a hint of orange. The food is... More

I really enjoyed the food. I went there a few time since I was working in the area for the week. Love the big apple!

The place is always jammed during breakfast hours. Line often out the door on weekend mornings. Don't come here if you're on a diet.

our food was 'average' but the long wait made this not worth it. My poached eggs were not hot and we had to ask for coffee to get a refill and ask for cream each time. give this a miss and go somewhere less busy.

This is one of the best places for breakfast. There's usually a wait, but it's well worth it. If you don't want to wait I'd suggest going early or later in the afternoon. If you live nearby or are staying nearby at one of the local hotels, I'd suggest ordering takeout. You won't have to wait in line, and the... More

There is no comparison to this breakfast establishment. I have frequented many locations through out MI and my personal favorite is the egg white only omelette. This is no regular omelette, it's unique and a signature of Pancake House. The key is that it is baked to perfection and can be loaded with anything that they have in the kitchen... More

If you like great pancakes, look no further! We have eaten here many times and the only complaint would be the wait time to get in. The service is good. The food is very good and the price is right. Stop by and see for yourself.
