A Must

At least once in your life you should try the oven baked pancakes. Choose either the Dutch Baby (with whipped butter, lemon and powdered sugar) or the apple ( topped with sliced apples, cinnamon and brown sugar). I do not have a restaurant near me so I always look for one when I travel.

The food was great. I had pecan pancakes. The service was a little hurried, though--the server filled the decaf drinker's cup with regular, forgot ketchup and the take out box. I think it's because a crowd was building at the door.

An extensive menu that would satisfy anyone looking for a good, reasonably priced early to late breakfast. The menu is extensive enough to have breakfast menu items all day. The food is very good quality, there is no skimping on quantity ... enough food to satisfy the hungriest. Coffee is very good, as is the fresh made orange juice. Attentive... More

The original pancake house family of restaurants provides excellent food and generous portions. We have been to all three and there is very little difference between them. Food is prepared as one likes it along with generous portions. The Reuben is a good example. I was literally stuffed after consuming the sandwich. My wife had the strawberry crepes and these...

We ate at this restaurant both days that we were in that area. Their portions are large. They have any kind of pancake you can think of. Their coffee is also excellent.

If you go here you have to try the Dutch baby it is so good. The service was great. Next time we want to try the apple pancake was told by a customer it is really good.

I love coming to this place for breakfast or brunch; it is one of my favorites. I always order tea and chocolate chip pancakes. Although the pancakes are consistently good, I feel like I am paying an arm and a leg for something with such cheap ingredients. They also charge a lot for a very small glass of juice which... More
