I love, love, love coming here. The pancakes are amazing. All kinds of fun French toast to choose from. The tuna melt is my go-to lunch. Spacious place to eat. Clean. Good service. Extensive menu. Great quality at a reasonable price.

A very nice restaurant for breakfast. Menu is full of options, a person can get confused while ordering. As fas as my experience, I really liked the french toast and omelette they serve. Yummy delight for breakfast but very heavy too.

I consistently love In a Pickle, especially because of the wildly decadent food options. I have gotten Oreo-stuffed pancakes and they are to die for. I definitely suggest going sweet rather than savory, as I think that is their specialty. For example, their home fries really aren't great. Also, amazing hot chocolate. It is definitely pricey though, and the wait... More

Went there with my family for breakfast. The staff was friendly and courteous to the kids. The food was great we had waffles and pancakes. The restaurant was large enough to seat plenty of people so the wait wasn't very bad. We will be going back soon.

To start...corn beef hash out of a can is not a,good start. Food was tasty...felt omlet fillings a bit slim...home fries excellent! Overall was fine..will try again - left satisfied but not stuffed as I expected.

We visit this restaurant frequently on the weekends. As a recommendation, I strongly urge you to get in the restaurant by 9:30 am at the latest, as this place fills up fast. Comfort food served hot and it's always delicious! Although, I always recommend to ask your server for well done home fries 👍

My daughter eats bacon eggs homefries and IHOP style waffles with fruit, ice cream, etc. In one menu item. I just come for the incredible burger.

This place is different. Good menu, good food, good service. But the layout is fabulous in my view. modern clean seating and a great bar-like seating pace as an option. news on the Big TV, etc.

Food was unique and tasted amazing. Hostess was rude, quick to be snarky. Our waitress made up for it, she was pleasant.

I've been to In A Pickle about five times now and every single time the food is delicious! Wait can be rather long, but that's just a testament to how many people love the place! Service is also always great and timely. A local favorite.
