Had breakfast here with my husband and teenage son. We arrived at 7:30 on a Saturday and there was plenty of seating. By the time we left, it was almost full of dining families. The restaurant was clean and comfortable. Our waitress was friendly. I...had french toast with strawberries. My husband had pigs in blankets (sausage wrapped in pancakes), and our son had banana pancakes with scrapple. All were good. They have plenty of breakfast options- omelets, sausage gravy with biscuits, two types of ham. Definitely a solid breakfast spot.More

Stopped in for breakfast on our way out for a day of sightseeing. After a short wait in the midst of the morning rush we were served quickly. Our server made great conversation with us and helped us get out and on our way with...full stomachs. We talked about the yummy pancakes all morning.More

There are lots of pancake place in Williamsburg. But, I saw the reviews for Colonial Pancake House on TripAdvisor while visiting my dad. I was craving pancakes. I needed a fix. Colonial did not disappoint. I got blueberry pancakes with a big slab of Scapple...on the side. DELICIOUS! My Dad had the Seniors Chicken Strips and Fries. It was a nice size serving - perfect for him. He said it was great. I can't wait to go back next month when I'm visiting again.More

If you have a gluten allergy — GO HERE! I had a waffle for the first time in 9.5 years!! The lady of the house has celiacs so they clearly know what they are doing. Very well-run, organized even during rush times. Food was delivered...quickly and with great service. Our waiter (the owners’ son) was wonderful - great sense of humor. We liked it so much we went back the next day!More

We ate at this pancake house our last morning in Williamsburg. Parking and waiting in the car as it rained was not ideal but necessary as Saturday morning was very busy. My wife and I ordered egg platters and the fried eggs were perfect as...was the Virginia ham and all of it served on a bed of thin, perfectly grilled potatoes that absorbed the runny egg yolks and made for fine eating. The décor is worn but functional and the wait staff stretched by the throng of patrons. If we lived in Williamsburg this would be a frequent stop.More

Very nice and friendly staff. All 7 of us thoroughly enjoyed our pancakes. The banana nut pancakes were to die for. My granddaughter had the Apple pie pancakes and the others had the chocolate chip pancakes. The reviews of this place were spot on.

I was craving waffle for breakfast and hubby found this joint not far from our resort. I like the decor and the place is bright and clean. Good job on distancing/sanitizing/masking protocol. We feel really comfortable while eating indoor. I had the Banana Works Waffle...(banana, pecans, chocolate chips and vanilla ice cream) , it was very satisfying. The corn beef hush is really good too.More
