“exactly right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

Very good food and service. We looked at the reviews on this site, and overlooked the obvious disgruntled employee comments. Nice to find a nice , clean, and friendly place in the middle of the chain restaurants. We'll return, as we go through this area often.

“Just great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

We stopped for breakfast on our way out of town for the first time at this restaurant in the 11+ years visiting Notre Dame. Wish I had started years ago. The food was amazing. As were the portions! And the wait staff was very nice. Overall excellent!

“Breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

We hit American Pancake for breakfast before leaving town. It was exactly what I want. A good ol' fashion pancake house that has a good selection. We got a ridiculous amount of food for the price. Everything was good and the waitstaff was attentive.

“Keep driving! To Bob Evans”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Restaurant is nasty, owner is a Greek that watches his staff on camera while he sits in the kitchen area smoking. Treats his staff like dirt makes them serve his coffee to him with his one pack of Splenda, makes the servers sit for at least 30 off the clock after the scheduled time, takes food from the bus tubs and the Trask and reserves it.

“Understaffed & OK Food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

I met some friends for breakfast, before shopping. I think there was 1 waitress, kind of felt worry for her. It is your typical breakfast joint. I got the pancakes…they were good, just took a long time. They were good and priced right, just wish we would have gotten out of there in a decent amount of time. If I were to go back, I would need to make sure I had nowhere else to be. I hope it was just a bad day.
