Short stack

The food and service is very good. The wait on the weekend is very long. Prices are what you would expect.

Stack'em High is a casual restaurant with consistently good food. Still run by the sons of the person who founded it. The family is very involved with supporting and giving back to the community. I saw where one reviewer felt it was a little outdated, but to those of us who live here, we are thankful that the family hasn't... More

Local family owned for 35 years. Buffet style pancake breakfast. Loved the slogans and funny verses painted on the wall. Staff was the epitome of Southern Hospitality.

This is a cafeteria style ordering set up but you take your drinks to the table and the waitress brings your order to you....cooked to order. Our order came very quickly and was piping hot. We would recommend this for a quick, reasonable priced breakfast. The staff was polite and efficient.

My husband's favorite meal out is breakfast, and this is his favorite place on the island, so we eat here frequently. Nothing really special, just good breakfast food and plenty of it. They do a beautiful omelet with ham, Cheddar and mushroom as a special some days - my favorite. You shuffle through a cafeteria-type line, picking up fruit or... More

They have two locations - one is open year round. Do NOT miss the loaded breakfast potatoes. Amazing French toast. Both alone are worth the trip from Raleigh!

We figured with a name like that, we'd try them for breakfast our first year visiting OBX. What a mistake! The "stack" of pancakes my hubby got was so small, we ended up finding a McDonalds for breakfast sandwiches. No one ever spoke to us hardly at all, the place seemed to be the kind you go to in order... More

The kids were begging us for pancakes so we stopped by for a late breakfast/early lunch. Since it was the off season there was only one other family present. The restaurant was clean, the portions large and the food overall good (for a breakfast joint). The total check was $41 for 2 adults and 3 kids which is a bargain... More

Unusual place with a friendly staff. If you have to get a large group breakfast this will work. However, you enter through a cafeteria style ordering line and the food is only OK.
