Great food

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.

This is our favorite place to go for breakfast. Real butter, real maple syrup, real food served here. It can get busy on Sunday morning after 9 am so get there before then if you don't want to deal with everyone coming from or going to church. Even if you're in a long line at the door though, it moves... More

My wife and I ate here with another couple and we shared the vegetarian omelet. It was very tasty, light and fluffy, very good. The pancakes were great as well as the american fries. The service was polite and attentive. We liked it so much we went back the next day. Tried the Big Dutch, that was great as well!... More
