We paid a visit to Stack 'em High Pancakes last Friday, mid morning. The food is so delicious and the portions size is very good. Although the food is worth the trip the staff is just the best. Great banter and senses of humor! I love a place that has great food and great people!

There are several places that lay claim to the best breakfast in the OBX, but Stack 'em High doesn't need to backup for any one. Get there early, and there will still be a line; but worth the short wait. Each breakfast is prepared as ordered, and is brought to your table fresh and piping hot. They have been in... More

Well, this restaurant is setup differently then you typical breakfast restaurant, the food is delicious! Make sure you get there early, probably before 8 am would be best because the parking lot fills up fast, and the line is out the door. It is another place that locals frequent, and the selection of the menu is comparable to any other... More

This food is awesome!!! Best pancakes I've ever eaten! I personally wasn't a fan of the type of bacon they serve it everything else was delicious!

They're not trying to be fancy here. Basic stuff, but everything is done well. They're always busy, but wait is less than you expect. Pancakes are light and fluffy and flavorful. Another must-do when we're here.

My family and I just enjoyed an outstanding breakfast here. From fruity pancakes to omelets, everything was delicious. This is a must for when traveling to the outer banks.

I live here, and really don't go there often. I don't care for the line that you go through to order, and the atmosphere is not great. Food is average, but we have so many other great places to go for breakfast.

Sometimes menus can be complicated this one isn't and the cashier made sure I got exactly what I wanted : French toast with blueberries and strawberries, bacon and two scrambled eggs. We beat the crowd by coming in early and soon the line was to the door even on a tuesday morning, but it moves very quickly. I wish I... More

Service was fast and the staff was great. They have other selections for breakfast but man these pancakes are stacked high and infused with nectar of... More

We are semi-locals down here in the OBX and this is our go-to breakfast spot. We eat here 2 or 3 times a week when at our place. Food is always great and the owners and staff are always working hard to get you in and out. The western omelette is my favorite! Plenty of flavor and just the right... More
