Best Michigan Pancakes

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... read 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

This is a great place to get selections of pancake. However the wait could be from 15 minutes to 35 minutes. I am sorry but I am not waiting in line to eat my first meal of the day!! If you have the time, go for it! If not, find another place for breakfast!

The cuisine is so delectable there is always a crowd waiting to get in. It took me three visits before I was able to get in to eat. . .and it was worth the wait and effort. The diversity of the menu is exciting and engaging. The melt in your mouth flap jacks are to die for. The sausage is... More

Difinitally the best breakfast I've ever had. From the pancakes to the big apple everything is perfection! Make sure to order the big apple when you are there. It's the best thing they have! What a great breakfast place.

Fresh squeezed on site orange juice, full flavor buckwheat pancakes and extra thick bacon make this restaurant a place to go to in spite of having to stand in line. It is worth it.
