People absolutely rave about Rise N Dine, but while I have found the service to be excellent, the food is another matter. With the word 'pancake' in the name of the restaurant combined with all of the people gushing about the quality of the pancakes,...More

Dear payitfwd71, Thanks for your great review. I have to agree with you on the fact that our pancake selection is not what it should be with more pancake creations as it’s in our name. I’ll revisit the recipe again and soon we will be...More

Very friendly family breakfast restaurant. Nice atmosphere, attentive servers and amazing family type food. Can be a bit busy but worth the wait. The menu has everything you would expect in a breakfast place at reasonable prices.

We bombarded this restaurant with twenty some people who were all here for a wedding. The owner went out of his way to make an area we could all be together. Food was really great, prices really reasonable. You'll be glad you stopped here.

Stopped in twice in one week for breakfast and both times the food was amazing. Their skillets are delicious as is their homemade patty sausage. The service was amazing with a super friendly staff.

Service was timely even though they were pretty busy. The food was great! Thick flavorful bacon, huge sausage patties, eggs cooked just the way we ordered them. Fresh fruit and the pancakes were light and fluffy.

Portions are very generous, pancakes are yummy, coffee is really good! Small carafe is kept on your table, so refilling your own coffee is an excellent idea! We will definitely visit here again. Open early and closes at 3:00.
