I have eaten breakfast and lunch at the Pancake Farm and the food is always great. The staff is friendly. You have to get there early for breakfast or you will have to wait in a long line. It is very popular in this area.

The food was pretty good, the service wasn't bad. It is a by far a locals restaurant. It doesn't have much seating and isn't very well suited for big parties. I would eat there again, only because I am a local. Would not advise driving a long distance just to eat there.

Always, always busy, but seating is pretty reasonable without a terribly long wait time. Food always good and HUGE portions! Servers always friendly and chatty. You can't go wrong with stopping here at the Pancake Farm!

We stop here for breakfast before we head to The Green Dragon Flea Market. Great breakfast, always "specials", fast & friendly service. Remember CASH only!

This place serves a wonderful breakfast. Their Belgian waffles are to die for. The service is quick and friendly. The only downside is it is always crowded and there is always a wait. However, it is well worth it if you want to treat yourself to a delicious down home meal. Their lunch was great too. We can't wait to... More
