The food was ok but way overpriced for what selection they have. Not much else if you don't like pancakes. I realize it's a pancake house but that doesn't mean everyone in the family wants them! Service was very average as well.

Loved the cherry crepes. I have been in the past ordering the blueberry pancakes which are never a disappointment. There is often times a significant wait so timing your visit to avoid waiting is a must. However, the bar area near the kitchen is first come first serve if you don't mind the seating. There is self serve coffee in... More

I took my kids here for breakfast and we loved it. They loved their pancakes. Unfortunately they also loved their Hot Chocolate, which my son drank before his pancakes came so he couldn't finish. My daughter got the dollar pancakes with strawberries and the cream is amazing - but so filling. Not surprising, she also didn't finish hers. I got... More

We have eaten here several times, and everything we have had there is excellent, but it is pricey for breakfast food. It is very possible to spend $30-35 for two people. Saying that, there fresh fruit is always good, as well as their omelets and pancakes. Just don't go in expecting Denny's prices.

Stopped here before a ballgame for breakfast. The food was great and came out quickly. Packed house but waited only 10 minutes to be seated.

Banana pancakes are simply amazing. Atmosphere is pleasant and warm. I have never had poor service but like all places, some staff are more friendly then others. The biggest problem I have with this place is the price of the orange juice. It is way out of line.

How can one pancake house be so much better than the rest? It is only pancakes and eggs, and some sides. Well how can Jack Kanes Kris restaurant be better than McDonald's! It is all about how they put their breakfast and lunch together and make special,special treats that are so much better than anyone else. I love the omlettes.... More

Good, old fashioned, soul filling breakfast food. I will say from the top that I think their bacon outshines any of the skinny, lifeless stuff that most places serve. The omelets are fantastic. In the fall, the pumpkin pancakes are to die for. Wonderful to be able to have fresh squeezed orange juice. Go early or late. Always crowded!!

Fresh ingredients including fresh squeezed orange juice. Plenty of food worth taking home leftovers. Apple pancakes are the best!
