“Outstanding Place to Eat”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

I have never seen a pancake the size of theirs AND they are great. Tons of food and it's all great. Prices are very good, service excellent and the tables are made out of trees. Wonderful place to eat, drink coffe/tea, read the paper and just relax.

“Fantastic pancakes, try the banana walnut”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

This is a great place to have breakfast on weekends. Share one of the huge pancakes, you will be filled up for the day, and they are delicious. I disagree with the bit about it being greasy! You also can take your dog and sit outside.

Reviewed December 30, 2011

Ugh. My family loves this place but every plate seems to come swimming in grease. I get a stomach just thinking of this place.

“Really Potato Shack?”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

I decided to take my out of town guests here because they love potatos for breakfast! How embarassing...nasty potatos...you have to be kidding.
