Restaurant smelled like an old persons home. As soon as I walked in I knew I should have left. My husband ordered chocolate milk and they brought him a pint carton like u get in gradeschool.... we ordered eggs which were overcooked, homefries which were ice cold. The service was fair and I feel sorry that the waitresses have to... More

Wife had pancakes and noted that they were fluffy. They did have sugar-free syrup, which was important. I had an omelet with bacon and cheese, which was tasty but mine wasn't so fluffy as I like them. The hash browns are sliced potatoes here - it always amazes me what they call hash browns and home fries wherever I go.... More

I have been here countless times over thirty years, accepting up and down service and food. I have now made my last visit. Went with family on an August Sunday, seated promptly. Server showed up after 5-10 minutes, took our order and disappeared for 30 minutes except to refill coffee and water. No explanation for a very long wait for... More

We've been to this restaurant about half a dozen times over the years, and it has always been crowded, but not this time. So I was surprised when the chair I sat in had not been cleaned and I unknowingly sat in some syrup, which was pretty unpleasant. The meal was very good, as it usually is, with ample portions,...

Service was good. Pancakes were okay. My husband wanted waffles and they did not have them on the menu. I was looking for healthier options and did not see any.

I have eaten at Mama Steve's for many years now. Whenever I am in the area, I always look forward to coming back. It's not the food that makes we return (although the food is pretty good). I keep coming back because of the charm--traditional old south hospitality and décor. Not much has changed (if anything) since my first visit... More

Nothing special! Quite similar to any pancakes houses. I like the vintage style of interior. We paid them 20% tips, but they seems very not happy about it. Williamsburg has so many pancakes that this one doesn't make come back!

There is nothing special about this place except an exceptional roadside sign. The pancakes were ok. The mexicano omlette had more salsa than necessary. It was just food. Our waitress was attentive. The staff/waitress attire left a lot to be desired. We were not sure what they were intended to portray. We would not go out of our way to... More

Besides the waitress telling us how tired she was, how she could not wait to go home, and giving u the plates to pass around the table, and the hostess and the cook arguing about how she did not belong in the kitchen, the food was terrible. Pancakes with no sugar and rubbery, eggs that were cold, uncooked bacon that... More

Positives: Bacon was nice and crispy, just like I like it. Negatives: There is no personality in this place OR in their food. The managing staff (they dressed to be noticed for sure!) reminded me of the wicked evil stepsisters in Cinderella and the waitstaff looked like their unhappy servants. It was really interesting to watch the dynamics of the... More
