We visit OC yearly and decided to try something different for breakfast on our last day on our way out of town. The service here was great, but the food had a lot to be desired. Sorry, we won't be back!

I don't know where I got the idea to eat here, maybe I saw a sign or something but we wound up at Happy Jack's Saturday morning the day we left Ocean City. We got there at 830, so it didn't take long to get seated.

Food was mediocre but since it was cheap I did not complain. Service was friendly and fast, so that's always a plus. I had strawberry pancakes. My teenager had chocolate chip pancakes. Really, these are just plain pancakes with toppings. These are not pancakes that have the ingredients cooked into it. They're also kind of small, but perhaps that is a good thing.

We also had omelets. They were a little bit boring. I hate to add salt to food but I found it necessary because it was flavourless.

The only reason I'd eat here again is if the kids insisted on it. The food wasn't terrible and it wasn't expensive, so I don't know....

Oh, by the time we left around 915 there was a HUGE wait. I heard the host tell a family that it would be 30 minutes' wait. Plan accordingly.

I was looking for a place to eat and saw Happy Jack's Pancake House. I assumed it to be something like Denny's or IHOP but boy, was I wrong. The place was packed (this was around 1 PM) but I was seated quickly. I was surprised to learn that they just serve breakfast or maybe I just got the breakfast menu. They had pancakes about a dozen different ways as well as the usual breakfast fare. Naturally, I ordered the pancakes. They came out fast and hot and my side of bacon was crispy, just like I like it. The pancakes were light, airy but delicious. I had not had pancakes in some time so I did not know what I was missing. It was a great meal, very reasonably priced, fast and efficient service and very clean, What more could you want?
