I'm not sure if everyone in my party ordered the wrong menu items, but all of our meals were just standard breakfast items (and we each ordered something different from their specials list). Even the German waffles did not live up to the hype. Magnolia Pancake Haus is pricey, always crowded, and does not live up to the hype everyone... More

Restaurant in a shopping plaza. Very very good breakfast. Pecan pancakes were the best I ever had and I love pancakes. Husband had corn beef hash and raved about it.

Okay, this place is better than the hype. Believe everything good you hear!!!! Be sure to try to "haus" originals, like the Southern Bennie. My husband stole half of it, because it was so good. We ordered the Munchener Apfel Pfannekuchen as an appetizer, which worked out nicely. TIP #1: We went to the nearby arcade and bowling alley after... More

A local legendary place, made busier by having been a tv show feature, but it was worth it. Corned beef hash is strong, and the pancakes are also very good. Clean place with wonderful wait staff working hard to get dishes out timely. Bonus point for giving you a text when you're 5 minutes from being seated you you can... More

Came here in search of a good pancake house to rival that of another from the greater Philadelphia region. While I can't say the pancakes are as good, the omelette was fantastic and our waiter was extremely accommodating. Service was fast considering the line outside and may be bringing a friend in April.

We had breakfast here on a Saturday morning and had to wait about 45 min for a table but boy was it worth it. They have some really good menu choices including some unique versions of eggs benedict and really good takes on hash as well. Their pancakes are great and the apfel pfannekuchen was amazing not to mention huge.... More

The wait was about 15 minutes, but it was completely worth it. The food came out quickly, and was fantastic. Probably the best pancakes and homemade sausage I've had. Everything I tried was great... only problem was my eyes were bigger than my appetite. Definitely will return next time in SAT

We loved the breakfast. Their pancakes are amazing! Their fresh squeezed orange juice is delicious! The wait was not that long and totally worth it.

We came here based on the TA reviews, so we were ready for the hour+ wait. They don't give you one of those alert things, instead they send you a text message when your table is about to be ready so that allowed us to go down the street to look around at some stores. Once we got in, the... More
