We needed a good breakfast before our long drive home and we found it here. We waited on the parking lot until they opened and we're glad we did. There was a great meal and friendly staff--the perfect way to start the day. We'll definitely go back.

They have avery unique system. You line up and order, get a number and then they bring your order to your seat. You must exit out the back as there are too many coming in the front door to go back the way you came. Good food, decent prices, and excellent service. Really quick!

Very good breakfast without the wait. Omelette was delicious! We went around 10am so I am sure we beat the rush!

Went to this pancake place on my first trip to OBX as a kid & loved being able to bring my kids! They are only open until 2pm, but had pretty much any breakfast drink or food you could want. I got pancakes, eggs & bacon. My kids all had French toast, eggs, bacon & fresh 🍓! Everything was delicious!... More

We ordered pancakes, waffles, and omelettes on our visit. All of the foods were great. The service was amazing and kept all our drinks and needs met without asking. We will always return to this restaurant.

We had eaten here on previous trips and everything was good. This time not so much. The lady at the register was rude and pushy. Our waitress was discussing how unhappy she was with her job with the fella at the next table. While serving our food she stuck her finger, fake nail and all, into the biscuits and gravy!!!... More

Not only is this a good place for breakfast, it is a fascinating place to visit for any number of reasons. The food is OK, about average for a restaurant of its kind and considering how efficiently it has to be run. But the food is perhaps the least of the reasons to visit Stack 'em High Pancakes.

Stack Em High is a very quaint, local neighborhood diner in OBX. Upon entering the diner, you take a tray and there you follow a line where you can purchase delicious blueberry muffins, or small bowl of fresh strawberries and blueberries, and your drinks. At the end of the line you're met with an array of choices for breakfast. Whether... More

The reviews are spot on about this place. We had a wonderful breakfast for 5. Portions are generous, food was delicious. The red flannel hash was incredible..The owner was pouring coffee refills and chatting up everyone. Great community feeling to discuss the power outages due to TS Hermine...we will return often. Highly recommend!

Thank Robyn C
