Came for breakfast. Best breakfast my daughter and I have had! The pancakes were a touch crisp on the edges. They were light. The syrup they had was delicious. My daughter had an omelet. The grits were good too. There was a small wait but...worth it. Service was great! Definitely be back!More

We went for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. One of us is gluten free the other not. Both breakfasts were ample!! Could not finish!!! When the GF pancakes were served I thought there was a mistake. They tasted way too good to be gluten free!...But our lovely server, Ann, was kind enough to show me the mix they use. Yup! GF Ann was lovely as our server, knowing how hungry I was she put my order before getting our drinks. Even though I was ravenous, I couldn’t finish my meal! The bacon was well cooked and tasty. None of that limp fatty bacon here! Also the virginia ham was also very tasty and perfectly cooked. I highly recommend Capital pancakes for a place to dine. Nothing fancy- just delightful service and delicious food! lastly as a tea drinker want to say how happy I was not having to ask for more hot water or tea! An individual carafe of hot water and 2 tea bags were given upon my tea order. Super happy to have eaten here!More

When on vacation, we always go out for breakfast at least one day. We did some research as there is a lot of pancake houses in the area. This was not one recommended to us, but through the research, looked like it had the best...menu for our tastes. We were not disappointed! This was one of the best breakfast we have ever had! If in the area again, we will definitely go back.More

We ate here twice for lunch. The menu is extensive and the staff is very attentive. We were pleased with both meals that we had here and would highly recommend others to visit here for breakfast or for lunch. The owner/manager is hands on and...friendly as can be.More

DO NOT GO HERE!! Took an hour and a half to get horrific uncooked food. The waitress complained about the manager and the manager had no idea what he was doing. I can’t express how horrible this place was.

The menu choices were immense, the prices were reasonable, and the portions were big. My BLT had a large portion of bacon and it was served with a mountain of fries. I appreciated having my own carafe of coffee so I didn’t have to ask...for refills.More

We happened upon Capital Pancake House honestly by mistake because we were going to go to another restaurant. The other restaurant was a chain restaurant and the wait was 2 hrs long, we decided to leave and go to Capital Pancake House. If you are...ever in town please go to this place because the service was wonderful and the food is delicious!!!! It doesn’t disappoint. I was so impressed. The owner is on top of everything. Loved our experience!!! Wonderful friendly people in Virginia. ❤️More

We got a 10% off coupon from the motel next door. The food was ok but nothing spectacular. Potatoes were flat with very little flavor. Eggs and cheese were very good. Coffee was to strong so we ended up with water. Cornbread hash and eggs...was good. Grits were ok. My biggest concern were the restrooms. They were not up to ADA code.More

Got this place mixed up with Colonial Pancake House. We decided to go ahead and try it. First the good. Friendly attentive staff. Clean , served quickly. Not so good. Kind of pricey $40 for 2 of us for breakfast, although we drank water.The food...was so so. Pancakes large and pretty good. My husbands eggs were undercooked mine okay. The grits and sausage not to my liking. Bacon good.More

I thought it was a little pricey for a pancake house but it is near the park so I can appreciate it being more. We had a short wait. The place was very busy. The service was very slow but the host and server both...went out of their way to make you feel welcome... kudos to them. Foodwise and pricewise though, you might be better off at Cracker Barrel.More

We enjoyed the food here so much we came back again two days in a row. The waffles, omelettes, pancakes, fried chicken and breakfast meats were wonderful. It's great to be able to get a variety of meats with the sampler and to have options...with eggs and half a waffle for the sweet/savory flavors. The manager runs a tight ship and makes sure all guests are welcomed and added to the list of there is a wait. We waird about 20 minutes around 10am, but encountered no wait at 9 am. The wait was worth it. Great coffee and sweet tea. Tempting mimosa offerings too.More

We dined twice on our visit to Colonial Williamsburg. First as a couple and then with family and children. Both visits were terrific. While it was busy on the Friday after Thanksgiving - they worked to seat us as quickly as possible. The staff is...very friendly and efficient. The pancakes and waffles are good. Pigs in a blanket are huge, and large servings of bacon. On a holiday week the restaurant is busy. As we find with many restaurants during CoVid they have a difficult time getting enough help. Both visits to Capitol Pancake House were very good. We highly recommend it.More
