Really long wait, with not many seats at all. Food was decent, expected better, I was kinda let down.

I had my wife and 3 boys with me on this trip and will say that-this was a great choice for breakfast. Although way pricey the food was good and great service.

My husband and I ate here for Valentines breakfast. Was disappointed they had no hash browns no gravy and biscuits??? Really? This is the south. Too pricey for the meal we had. Waitress was greta.

That's why they named it Pancake Shop. Better breakfast across the street. Don't get me wrong their pancakes are really good. Just not a lot of variety on the menu.

This is a small place but has great service food and character. It feels like you are back in the 1950's eating at your local diner. It was truly one of the highlights of our stay in town.

We needed breakfast at 6 am before a tournament. The menu isn't fancy, but my child loved her french toast, and I enjoyed my tender, yet not runny, scrambled eggs, bacon, and rye toast with coffee. Reasonable prices and very warm and friendly staff.

The staff are very friendly and the food was decent, but they pack as many people as they can and it is a little claustrophobic. If there is a wait, they will tell you to go next door to a very nice little gourmet pantry...More
