This was a nice family owned breakfast restaurant. I like to visit those to get a break from the chains. It did not disappoint. I could hear others in the restaurant thoroughly enjoying their food as well.

A very nice pancake restaurant that has been in Williamsburg, Va. since 1968. That is the same year I came to Virginia to start my Navy A school experience. The staff is very pleasant and very attentive. The coffee is wonderful as well. Great for breakfast and lunch it seems always crowded with families and friends. Convenient location right on... More

Don't let the appearance fool you, food is average for a independent restaurant. Not real sure that they don't serve you frozen food. Service leaves a lot to desire.

A quick and easy breakfast stop. Easy in and out parking. Staff is friendly. Coffee was very good. Food actually was good. The price was average for a tourist location.

Every visit to Williamsburg for our family includes a breakfast at Mama Steve's. This time we got to introduce our son in law to our favorite breakfast spot, and he agreed with us: Mama Steve's is first rate! I had my "usual," if you can say you have a usual at a restaurant where you only eat once every year... More

For anyone who's ever been to Colonial Williamsburg knows, the surrounding area is well populated by pancake houses. My wife and I spent the weekend for the Grand Illumination in Colonial Williamsburg which was wonderful. On Monday morning, we elected to skip the national chains (Ihop, Denny's etc), and have breakfast at one of the local places, Mama Steve's Pancake... More

My family and I sat on a dirty bench smooshed between two other families, near the front window. Due to the overcrowded dining room, our waitress had trouble maneuvering between tables. Once our food was presented, she moved our sliverware by scraping it across the table with her hands without asking us for help. We found that odd and distasteful.... More

Visited from out of town and saw it on the road and had a taste for pancakes. What a mistake! Do not go here! Worst customer service and if you want to waste almost an hour watching people sending their food back while your waiting for yours then come here. This takes the cake for the slowest, worst service I've... More

The menu is very limited, and the sides are a bit on the pricey side but over all not a bad place to eat.

While on vacation we like to eat at more local places than chains. Our hotel suggested this place but I'm sure they were paid to do so. The inside is very outdated and the waitresses are, too. The menu is pretty limited and SUPER expensive. A side of meat was over $5. The pancakes were terrible. For a pancake house,... More
