There's two Stack 'em High Pancake restaurants in OBX. This one, in Kitty Hawk, and the other further south in Kill Devil Hills. Last year we ventured out for breakfast and tried the KDH restaurant (at 1225 N Croatan Hwy). We loved it! Great food, great service, everything was wonderful. We went back the next day, and planned for Stack... More

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday morning in the off-season. DUH. But even so...25 minutes for pancakes and bacon? 15 minute wait for a coffee refill? A 15-minute cafeteria-style line to get in? I'll be fair and say that I'm grateful that this place was open when so many others are closed in the dead of winter in OBX, and... More

My wife and I had a good experience at this restaurant, and the food was above average. The food is ordered cafeteria style, and the staff hustles you along, so be ready with your order. I would recommend this place for breakfast, though it's a little pricey.

Took my grandson out for a guy's breakfast-out at the Kitty Hawk location. The hostess poured my coffee in a cup with a huge chip missing in the lip. When I asked for another unchipped cup, her disposition changed. She started to pour the coffee from the original cup directly into another cup until she saw the look of disbelief... More

Families with kids should avoid this place. It is a mass of confusion and not a good, calm way to start your day. The staff is nice but overworked and it backs up and gets crowded easily. You stand in line to place your order and then pick up your other items cafeteria style. Everything is a la cart and... More

We were surprised when we first walked in that it was a cafeteria type place but was it ever great! We ordered omelets and waffles and the amount of food was phenomenal! Lovely, attentive service by all employees. Our coffe cups were never empty. And the food...oh my. Best breakfast we've had in the 2 months we have been traveling.... More

Stack'em High is about my favorite breakfast restaurant in the Outer Banks. Established by a family from Greece decades ago it is a staple here in OBX. This is "very" casual dining that starts out in a line at the door but quickly moves along to the counter where ONLY ONE family member grabs a tray for drinks, fruit, pastries... More
