Huge pancakes!!

If you want huge portions of good food, this is a place to visit. I had the simpler pancake breakfast and the pancake was still the size of the plate. Bacon was cooked to a perfect crispness and my eggs were cooked as requested, over medium. The pancake was flavorful and fluffy but still a bit... read more

Had breakfast of Sausage biscuits and gravy and my friend had Eggs Benedict. The Eggs Benedict was served on a huge platter with crisply grilled hashbrowns (looked like real grated potatoes to me) the eggs were finished beautifully medium with no runny whites. The sauce appeared a little on the thin size-however the flavor was still very good. The sausage... More

For some reason, Dutch Mothers seems to be going downhill. The offerings are not consistent. Wait staff is very pleasant but the food is very average these days.

We've been going to Dutch Mother's for years! They have the best breakfast and wonderful home-style meals. The atmosphere is really comfortable and homey.

The atmosphere is really neat in the Dutch restaurant, but the food is lacking. It's very greasy. Almost every dish I've had in my 3 times visiting has been swimming in grease. If your going to try this place, get the huge dutch pancake. It's the one thing I can stomach.

I have eaten at this excellent only twice, but both times the food was oh so good. The service there was well received very well by my friends. I'd eat there again in a heartbeat.

My friend had the one one one and I had European Sausage breakfast. Deliscious! The dark rye toast and homemade strawberry jam was a home-run and the sausage was grilled to perfection. I will go back again.
