If you're looking for some good American-style pancakes, this is the spot for you. There were quite a few different options on the menu, and the prices weren't too outrageous. Interestingly, they put a dollop of ice cream on top of the pancakes. The location is good, just next to the Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville on Darling Harbor.

Ate here on a Monday morning. Managed to get a seat right away even though the place was quiet busy. Free table water was brought to us while we decided what to eat and drink. Service was very lacking and as it was table service it took us quite a while to get a servers attention plus our server never said more to us than 'Ready to order?'. Food was good value though with my meal having a large amazing amount of walnuts, banana and chocolate ice cream topping my pancake. My friend also received a large amount of cherries and ice cream on his pancakes. The food was all really tasty and nicely presented. Location gives you a pretty good view of Darling Harbour depending on where you are seated within the restaurant.

Waited 20mins for a table on a busy Fri night. The place was packed mainly with youngsters. Price was generally inexpensive. Ordered a few mains such as ribs and crepes, all were forgettable stuff. Only the pancake dessert I had was delicious. My advice is to stick to just pancakes as the name of the restaurant suggests and forget about the other stuff they have on the menu.

Very much a family restaurant, but excellent food and quick, good service.

The food was well cooked, and fantastic value for money. Although, being a family restaurant, the atmosphere suffered a little with a few crying children.

Great for breakfast/brunch, though the menu has options available for all meals.

The restaurant is located in the Harbourside shopping centre at Darling Harbour, and is placed at one end on the ground floor nearest the Pyrmont Bridge. Features relatively good views of the harbour and bridge.
