Sorry, but the service was not great, the corned beef hash was TERRIBLE, the rest of our breakfast was OK at best. I just don't understand this place. It has a great atmosphere, and many long-time customers come here, long history, etc. But the times I have come here over the years, it just does not impress me (food, service,... More

Millbrae pancake house lived up to the reviews and then some. The fast and experienced waitstaff made the experience fabulous. Don't expect new and fancy, but do expect old-school satisfaction.

Had breakfast here before flew home to Ireland from San Francisco. It was busy so i had to wait about 20 minutes for a seat which was not too bad. The service is not great but the food is and i was very happy with it. I would definitly recommend this place.

We like to stop at MPH after surviving the flight from Boston to San Francisco and, time permitting, on the outbound trip too. Excellent waffles (not Belgium), pancakes, and eggs. The staff are very friendly, and the place is popular with locals as well as travelers.

Had a wonderful experience here yesterday. I had a veggie scrabble that was just terrific. It came with two pancakes. I took a star off for the pancakes. I like mine thinner but overall a great experience.

The service here is really good. The employees are really friendly and happy. The place was pretty busy, but as a party of 5, our wait wasn't long (about 10 mins). My friend mentioned that she came here as a party of 8 on a previous occasion and had to wait for about a hour. The food was pretty good.... More

Went here yesterday with a local friend for an early lunch before my flight home and was very satisfied. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the service and food alike was great. if given more time in Millbrae, I would have definitely made this my breakfast spot.

My wife and I shared a Denver Omelette and had buttermilk pancakes. Simply put, excellent food, good service at a reasonable price!
