My wife and I have been here several times before (more than 10 years ago) and had always had good pancakes. We decided to try it again as we had a morning free in the Princeton area. The good news is that the restaurant was very clean and had a pleasant atmosphere and we were seated promptly (not bad for... More

In reading the reviews I was worried about this restaurant but it was great. Everyone in our group loved their meal. The name says Pancake House and while they do offer pancakes and breakfast food all day, they also offer excellent Italian food, salads and sandwiches. Generous portions, bring your appetite. Served pesto with the bread, yum. Very good service.... More

My husband and I went to PJ's Pancake House for a late breakfast on a cold, rainy day. It took a while to get a table but the food was exactly what we wanted... rich and tasty comfort food! We ordered pancakes with eggs, bacon and sausage and we both really enjoyed it. The food is very heavy though so... More

Pancakes were served ice cold and the second batch had the texture of chewing gum. My husband ordered fried eggs easy over that needed a steak knife to cut through them. The coffee tasted like they used last week's used coffee grinds and the servers all look bitter and miserable. A horrible breakfast experience that probably only hung-over college kids... More

We went here for lunch. Breakfast is served all day, but we had a couple of excellent salads. Just a small place with outdoor seating. Clean. Service was good.

Quaint, write on the tables. But go for the breakfasts. Great pancakes but lots note than that. Sit family style at the table with others. Large servings make you full. Great spot.

We've been here a few times. We liked it the first time - the kids loved peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes. But we have been increasingly disappointed since the first visit. Our daughter was the last hold out and kept wanting to give it one more try. After the recent visit, even she is done and says she never wants... More

Good (not great) pancakes, great atmosphere, perfect location. A landmark. We sat outside and had a lovely breakfast.

This place is clearly resting on its laurels. Admittedly, the food is good, but IHOP can produce equally good pancakes with friendlier service. Our waiter wasn't friendly nor helpful. He seemed quite put off when he stopped by our table, asked for our order, and we informed him we hadn't figured out our order yet. It was downhill from there.... More
