The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the food is wonderful, the service is quick, and the prices are unbelievably great! A throwback to the days when diner food was what you craved, the Pancake Farm has quality and perfectly prepared breakfast and lunch dishes. They have daily specials - and creative dishes! Looking for a great place for breakfast or... More

Fantastic authentic Lancaster County type food. A lot of bang for your buck, *cash only*! They do a lot of work with the local animal shelters which makes me happy!! Definitely a must if your visiting the area .

I like to be fair with my reviews and found the Pancake Farm to be very average. The scrapple and sausage really had little taste, as was everything else. It was alright, but nothing stood out to make you want to return.

Any place that educates the public about puppy mills AND serves delicious home-cooked food has me at hello. Upon entering the restaurant, in terms of decor you feel like you are going into a time warp back to the 50s. It's not elegant, but it's perfect just the same. The coffee is delicious, the service friendly, and the food delicious!... More

This was my wife's and I first visit here although we have driven by here a million times. We had breakfast and on a scale of 1 - 10 I would give them an 8. Service was good and the prices were very reasonable. Will definitely go back.

Consistently good breakfast items! Visit almost monthly as a meeting spot with friends! Very reasonable prices! Always fresh fruit on the waffles, and we try a wide variety of items. Some love the oatmeal with fresh fruit! Healthy choices! Clean, small, line moves fairly quickly and of course, friendly service!

This is a favorite restaurant of my brother-in-law. He likes the eggs and potatoes. I had a tuna melt which was pretty good. It isn't anything fancy, though, really basic inside, but the service is good and the waitstaff is very friendly.

I go here at least once a week for breakfast. The food is soooo good, the service is wonderful, and the prices are amazing! By far the best potatoes anywhere!

Looking at it from the outside it doesn't look like a big restaurant. But it is. Once you step inside it seats quite a few people. Service is always fast and friendly. never had any issues. Prices are far better than chain restaurants like ihop.
