A breakfast favorite when I come to Pittsburgh. I have never had corned beef hash that compares with this! It is out of this world!!! The pancakes are - well, maybe there are no words for how fluffy they are in the center and crispy on the edges, delicious with a hefty serving of melted butter and syrup. Never-ending cups... More

I liked the place but I have to really question if it's worth waiting when it's busy. The hot cakes were good, the banana walnut were just that, no syrupy fake walnut and banana coating, the omelets were large and good and the decor takes you back in time to the days you played board games with your 10 year...

This was a fantastic place. The food is absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is fun. They have all types of old games decorating the walls. Be aware, that this is a Cash Only establishment. You better take plenty in.

We came here because of a review we read and we were not disappointed! The review was right, these are the best pancakes ever!! All the staff went above and beyond when we asked where to find a specific store nearby. They were all very friendly and very helpful. We will recommend Pamela's to anyone going to Pittsburgh!

Thin crepe style pancakes served in a stack of three were delicious. Also tried the banana chocolate chip pancakes and they were good too. Reasonable prices and friendly staff.

Stopped in here for breakfast on a Saturday at about 10:30. Had to wait maybe 20 minutes but it was absolutely worth it. The food is delicious and portions huge yet prices low (my favorite combo!). Plus, it's a fun atmosphere with colorful employees and great people watching. My only complaint was the bacon was poor, but my pancakes made... More

Fun place to visit for breakfast. The pancakes are great! Go early and then burn it off shopping in the Strip.

They are especially good for breakfast food. Cash only. Try the homefries. This location is open for breakfast and lunch only.

Often a wait to be seated on weekends, even in foul weather, but the service is quick and the food is consistently good. This gluten- free gal loves to share a spinach and feta omelet with the mister. We each get half the omelet and potatoes - oh, the potatoes! - and he gets the toast. Win- win!

Went for lunch. This is just a good basic diner, with a variety of dishes on offer at very reasonable prices. Service is efficient and cheerful. Cash only at this branch. Lyonnaise potatoes are the best I've had. Deep fried jalapenos are delicious. This is not top end restaurant food, but is great if you just want something to eat... More
