We took a chance on this place whilst wondering around Albert docks and I am so glad we did, the staff were a delight and the food was impeccable. Probably the best potatoes I've ever had in my life. Very reasonable pricing. Great views as well

I can't say enough about this restaurant. I have been going here for years and nothing compares to them. This is a family-owned restaurant and everything is made fresh (not frozen) on the premises. Their portions are huge, so prepare to take a doggy bag. (They don't discourage sharing either and will bring you an extra plate.) I can't stop... More

My husband and I have been going to Pan Am Family Restaurant for many years and love it. It is a family owned restaurant and we know all the waiters and waitresses and go usually at least once a week if not more. We just love it!

My wife, daughter, and I tried Pan Am Restaurant on a Friday evening, the second restaurant that we’ve tried at Pan Am Shopping Center, which is an easy stop during our commute home just of Route 66. We were pleasantly surprised and impressed with the tasty dishes, prompt and friendly service, and the quantity of food that we got. The... More

Tucked in a strip mall, Pan Am is really a traditional, North East US, Greek diner. Portions are large, almost too much so and the food is hot and comes pretty fast. Greek specialties are the way to go but there are pages full of traditional Americana as well. Service is clipped but efficient, with most servers older authentically Greek... More

Can't believe we've never been here. Food is fresh, well-prepared and huge servings. Wait staff is friendly, courteous. We had spanakopita appetizer, gyro platter, eggplant Parmesan and baklava...with enough left over for a second dinner. We will make this one of our go-to restaurants.

Breakfast is pretty terrible. Canned corned beef, potatoes with no seasoning, pancakes and waffles made with cake better. blech. Prices are also way out of line. Food for two adults and two kids was $40 and 2 coffees and 2 kids drinks were another $10. Try First Watch or even IHOP if you're in this area.

Just go. You wont find that quaility food in any chain. The Greek dishes are amazing. The chicken souvlaki is beyond delicious. We travel 40 min there twice a month for 16 years. Never a bad meal or experience. Love it.

The obvious stuff: large portions, with an emphasis on Greek foods. The chicken souvlaki platter, with fries and salad is very good, and probably enough that you can take some with you. Beef Stroganoff, when its on special, is not to be missed. Had the tea, which was fine. Salad bar is not enormous but has pretty much everything you... More

For six years, I used to work down the road and would go to Pan Am Restaurant once a week for lunch. I haven't been working in Fairfax for almost 10 years but I went back the other night as I was in the area and when I walked in I was recognized by the staff! I love this place!... More
