Was very crowded on a Saturday morning and service was quite slow. One of our parties food came in stages too so had nearly finished one part before the other came out. Menu was large but mainly only one topping type with pancakes. Free refills...More

We have visited this chain in many cities and love it. The breakfast choices are all yummy but huge so order less. The omelets and pancakes are to die for! Nice service and a comfortable environment. Will return!

We went on Sunday morning, it was great experience, the waiters were so polite and super fast. Even the one dollar pancake (the plain pancake) was so good! I would honestly recommend it!

They’re oven broke while waiting on our food. But didn’t tell us for about 20min after we had placed an order. Just one recommendation: waiters should come out a little bit more often especially since it wasn’t too busy today. Besides that, food is good...More
