Pancakes are excellent with many choices. Busy Saturday but we got seating right away and service was great. The breakfast on a bagel was excellent. Very wide variety of items on menu.

We’ve been lunching here “off and on” since we moved to the Summit area a year ago; some times the service has been good, with friendly staff, and the food good, but not outstanding. The last few times, the staff just don’t seem to listen...More

The Broadway Diner claims to serve the world's best pancakes and I think they have a good point. They really are that good. Quite a variety of pancakes to choose from too. Oh, by the way, the wait staff is very courteous and friendly. We...More

I’ve been here a few times. This time was not the best one. The Mickey pancakes were far from Mickey shaped much to someone’s disappointment. They were also rather dry. The banana pancakes I had were very nice and the latte, when it came, was...More

I had the pancakes, as they boast to be the world's best. I thought the blueberry pancakes were very good. The prices were reasonable, it was very crowded. It was extremely loud as well, lots of families and kids on a Sunday. I'd go back...More

Walking through the door it's a hit or miss on whether or not you'll be greeted. Varying on the time and day you go, it is a sit yourself or multiple hosts atmosphere. If you sit yourself, it can take anywhere between five to ten...More
