The Pancake Shop epitomizes "old school" coffee shops. Everyone was greeted warmly and as if they knew you for years (and most of the customers seemed to be locals who ate there quite frequently). We felt right at home almost instantly. And, of course, the pancakes were to die for.

Food was good, but a very limited menu. No hashbrowns much to my husbands dismay. tables are close together and not private. Service was fast however and food was terrific.

Cindy, thanks for your honest feedback regarding your breakfast experience at the Pancake Shop. Happy you noticed the good food and fast service. Hash browns have come up in conversations before over the 75 years of serving breakfast. Food for thought. Thanks again. Hope to see you again soon!! More

They always get all the food right, can really cook an egg to order to perfection. Love the apple butter. Servers are quick, courteous, cheerful, and never leave you hanging. The ambiance is intimate, warm and clean, tables are close but you have enough elbow room to shove in the great grub. We always, always go here when we come... More

My wife and I were in HS for the day and grabbed a late breakfast at TPS. It had been almost 10 years since we had dined there last. Nothing has changed. But why alter great food and great service. If they had Trip Advisor in 1955, my grandfather could have posted this same review. Truly great

This restaurant more than lives up to all the positive reviews we read about the staff, and naturally, the food ! From the moment we stepped through the door we felt at home. Everything on the menu was tempting so was hard to decide what to have!. It turned out, we all ordered something different and not one complaint for... More

I hate reviewing restaurants because I am such a fussy vegetarian. but this was awesome! My colleague in Dallas told me about this restaurant and said it was a place I NEEDED to go to and that I would enjoy it and he was right!

The Pancake Shop has been there for decades. It is a storefront in downtown Hot Springs. It is reasonably priced and the staff is very nice. The decor has also not changed for decades. It looks like a 1950 coffee shop but without any sign of the interesting design of the 1950's. There was a 30 minute wait to be... More
