Literally the best French toast I have ever had. Family said they were the best pancakes they have ever had. Worth taking a trip!

We stopped by on a Friday morning around 10 am and as expected there was a 30 minute wait. There is a parking lot behind the building that didn't seem to have enough spots. We got the sweet potato pancakes and grill cooks medley. The sweet potato pancakes were good and fun to try. The grill cooks medley was nothing... More

As usual, the wait was long, the queue was out the door. It was nice to have a hot cup of free coffee for the people waiting to be seated. The food was excellent and the service was fantastic

My wife and I were lucky enough this past Sunday morning (1/18) to get right in around 8:30am before the large crowd. The pancakes were awesome, but the service was not. We joked that the older lady waiting on us must be related to the owner or something because compared to the others servers that we watched blaze around table... More

We have tried to eat here in the past, but the line was crazy. Finally, we get there at 7:20 am and no wait. I had Caribbean pancakes, my husband had pecan pancakes and kids had silver dollars with bacon. It all was just ok. Not great, not bad. $45 for pancakes:( I have tried it so I'm satisfied, but...

Only been once. Found it no better than an iHop pancake house. Nothing different. Food was luke warm. Wait staff was pleasant enough but had a bad experience when we left a tip on the table and it was grabbed by a server who didn't serve us. My husband did report it. Don't think we will go back. We are... More

My husband and I as well as two friends of ours waited outside for 20 minutes to get a table only to have some of the worst service I've ever experienced. I can usually over look that because I can reflect it in the tip but the food is mediocre at best and definitely not worth it. I ordered milk... More

My sister and I went there for lunch, so we didn't have to wait at all. The food was good - not out-of-this-world good, but good. There was plenty of parking in the back.

We enjoyed our trip to the Pancake Pantry! After a short wait, we all selected different kinds of pancakes and had fun trying each other's. I had the sweet potato pancakes, my daughter had the banana nut, my son-in-law had chocolate chip, my husband had the pecan, and my grandchildren had the kids pancakes. Everything was delicious!
