As soon as we entered the restaurant we saw most of the patrons were enjoying the house specialty a Bavarian pancake, our waitress advised us that it will take 25 minutes to make in their oven. We decided to wait because it looked so good. Surprise when we finally are the pancake we discovered that it was basically a soufflé... More

My dad took my picky 6 year old, his fiancé and myself to the pancake house for breakfast. I had never been there before, but he had. First he writes his name on the board, I thought that was neat you could write booth or table. We're seated quickly. Our server was friendly and was great to my son. Brought... More

My Mom loves pancakes, and everytime I visit, we go to this spot. The food is OK. lt's pretty large, and always crowded with large groups, and lots of families and children. They move people in and out pretty efficiently. The value is good -- you get alot of food for your money. The service is pretty fast and pretty... More

If you're looking for a great price and real food don't go here the Omelettes are made of something fluffy because real eggs don't look like this or taste like this. the most disappointing thing was the price totally not worth it at all to some it up everything is over priced If the food was great I wouldn't mind...

I had an awesome omelet and pancakes. The omelet was loaded and the pancakes were light and perfectly cooked. Come hungry.

The family met for breakfast and our wait time was minimal. they easily accommodated our party of 6 and I was surprised when all the dishes were served they were hot and fresh. There's an abundance of selections and we ordered was good, from omelets to pancakes to eggs. Would recommend for breakfast anytime.

Always a long line since there aren't many breakfast places in the area but exorbitantly over priced. The pancakes tend to dry and the bacon not crispy enough. The waitresses are often crabby. Kids do love this place and the silver dollars are worth it

My friend and I had breakfast here. My omelet was huge--I couldn't finish it. The pancakes were great. Our waitress could have been more friendly--maybe she was just tired. Bust place for breakfast.

Sure, breakfast for two at $30 is too much in these parts, but it's hard to quarrel with the quality - or the quantity - here. From the real maple syrup, to the fresh berries, to the mountainous fruit bowl, breakfast always tastes as if it was prepared with love and from scratch. The gigantic omelets are always done to...

Starters-- I would purchase the Pancake House Coffee if were available in K cups! Second --- well worth the 20 minute wait for the Best Spinach and Cheddar cheese Omelette available at any restaurant that dare offers! I have ordered omelettes all over the United States; The Ritz-Carlton in Philly, First Watch in Fl to my Grandmom's in Portland, OR---... More
