“Scratch Cooking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I live in Osage Beach. Yes, the place is tiny so I go during the week, Cozy next door is also very good, but with a little more grease, if you have a hangover get the Cozy shingle. Anyway, the Pancake House owner/chef used to be the cook for a major Vegas Casino, and he can cook! I usually get the "not out of the can" corned beef hash with 2 eggs on top. Kids like the chocolate chip pancakes. Wife also gets eggs with pancakes. Great service, hot coffee, and even a small restroom you get to by walking through the kitchen. Can't go wrong here, except if you're from out of town and expect to be seated immediately on a busy weekend. I know he's looking for a bigger place to set up shop, but no luck so far

“Couldn't get in”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We tried to visit at 11 am on a Friday, but were told there would be a 10-15 minute wait, which we could not do with a hungry toddler in tow. There are only 8 tables in the restaurant, which is tiny. We were also told we could not sit outside at either of the two-seater tables due to "fire regulations" prohibiting more than 2 people at each table. Very disappointing.

Great food! Great service! You may have to wait, but it's worth it! Portions are huge! Prices are very reasonable. Went twice in a 3 day trip.

We loved it so much we came back the next morning. Staff was friendly, coffee was great and food was delicious! A must if you are traveling through or staying.

Had a large party on a Sunday. They were able to get us in quickly. Service was fast, food had large portions and was great tasting!
