There isn't much extra special about this place. You can get coffee, eggs, regular pancakes, etc. anywhere. However, you CANNOT find the Dutch Apple Pancake anywhere else! It's basically a giant pancake with apples and delicious glaze on it. I tried to make it at home and couldn't do it justice. Get it.

If you come here, come here hungry! The line is out the door. There was a 20 min wait to be seated but it was well worth it! Once seated the service & food don't stop. Serving portions are huge & food is full of flavor. You have a excellent choice of crepes, pancakes, omelets, and other breakfast choices. Staff... More

The place was PACKED! But, had GREAT service. Pancakes so light and fluffy, you'd swear they will float off of the plate. Good size portions for the money. Had sausage links which were also wonderful.

My daughter lives in Michigan now and when I got off my early morning flight from VA we went here for breakfast. I only eat IHOP pancakes, so I was a little skeptical about ordering the pancakes. To my delight I was highly impressed...they were light and fluffy like IHOP are supposed to be! The portions were large and everything... More

Come here hungry, but not RUSHED. You and your party will more than likely have to stand in line; but the food is good. I wish they would add Chicken & Waffles to their menu.

We had the pumpkin pancakes (with whipped cream for a topping) and they were great - very flavorful! Highly recommended :)

If there is one place you cannot miss for breakfast, this is it! Well worth the wait to get in. This is the place and the quality of fare that cracker barrel can only hope to (but will never) achieve. Very friendly service, and simply the best food for breakfast I have experienced.

Jam packed on a late Sunday morning, the line moved quickly and efficiently for seating. We were a party of 7, and the restaurant staff took extra effort to set a large comfortable table for us. Even though the offerings are similar to well known breakfast and pancake chain restaurants, the omelets were fluffy and generously filled, and the pancakes... More

This is a great breakfast place, even after lunch. The place was packed but the experience was well worth the wait. The food was excellent! I had strawberry pancakes eggs and the greatest bacon, as I said excellent. The service was great also, it was an all around great experience well worth repeating.
