Five of us were well served at breakfast in spite of wide ranging tastes. A couple of us ordered the lumberjack special and found it could have served at least two people: 3 large pancakes, 2 eggs, breakfast meat, home fries AND toast! Pancakes were plate sized but a little doughy. Real maple syrup is available for order. Weekdays are... More

The food was not good. Pancakes were dry, french toast, dry. Service, not good. The best thing I ate was the breakfast sausage. Way over priced for poor to mediocre food. Not worth the visit.

I think it is hard to mess up a breakfast and while up north I'm looking for one that is better than what we can whip up at camp. We do a better a job at camp. What was disappointing was the DELI THIN slice of ham served with my 2 eggs (over easy...not a surprise that they can't do... More

Our waitress Marge was super, but the food? Thin slice of ham with over-grilled eggs, horrible omelette with not much but onions on it, and the pancakes were nothing impressive at all. If you see how the manager deals with his workers and the public you'll want to just leave. Has really changed for the worst. Only good thing is... More

We picked Keyes because it is an old time Old Forge standard. We arrived at 7:30 am and were seated right away. Our waitress was skilled, efficient and friendly. The sausage and cheese omelet I ordered arrived quickly as did my wife's pancakes. The dish was good basic food. The 80 seat restaurant has an old time Old Forge vibe.... More

Have eaten there several times. Keyes has a varied menu with portions for those who want a light breakfast to the lumberjacks.

We have been coming to Old Forge for years and always eat at least once at Keyes. This is the first year that it wasn't packed with people or a lineup to get in. The food has definitely gone down hill. The prices have also increased. I had a sandwich which was quite good but my husband had "The Canoeist".... More

Good was good, price was ok, serving was less than stellar. We had some short old lady who quite clearly had some type of stick up her bum. She was curt, barely talked, and frisbee threw our check at us at the end of our meal without a word. I'd probably not go again. The food wasn't worth the attitude.

Our family visited Old Forge for the first time and saw the Pancake House in the way in. Instant excitement! Sadly our experience didn't match our excitement. We were greeted by an unfriendly hostess who gave us an estimated wait time of 5 min. We noticed several empty tables and asked if we could be seated at the empty booth... More
