Fun way to eat but disappointed in the quality of the ingredients and slow, slow service.....the blue berries for the pancakes came out frozen; spinach for the omlette - frozen; mushrooms for the omlette was out of a can. The service was brutually slow - you would think if you are cooking yourself that they could be very quick; the griddles are not that hot and cooking takes awhile. Been once and that was enough....

The bottom line is that YOU MAKE YOUR OWN BREAKFAST! The cost was very overpriced for our family of seven. The topping portions were very small. My husband ordered "the big breakfast" which came with the worst home fries ever. The waitress was very pleasant and enthusiastic. They added a 20% gratuity on automatically,.... even though we had to cook our own eggs, pancakes, and rewarm our side dishes. Honestly, my children had a much better experience and meal at the diner down the road.

A great place to go for breakfast, guaranteed to have a ton of fun. This is an all you can eat pancake house which has a recessed griddle in the middle of all the tables. You choose your toppings for the pancakes that you will be making at your table. Toppings range from fresh fruit, chocolate chips, candy, ice cream, whip cream, etc. The choices are endless! The wait staff beings you the raw batter and everything you need to cook with at your table. If you are not interested in pancakes they also offer eggs, French toast, variety of meat and home fries. The meat and home fries are cooked in the kitchen and then delivered to your table. You cook your own eggs on the griddle at the table. Very fun for the kids. They even give the kids chef hats to wear! Highly recommend!

My wife and I consider our visit to 'Griddle in the Middle' on our recent 4th of July trip to Lake Winnipesaukee, to be a highlight of fun, food and laughter.

Looking for a fun place for breakfast or brunch? Griddle in the Middle is it! The name says it all-each table has a griddle in the middle where diners flip their own pancakes and create custom omelets. The all you can eat pancake batter is delicious and the egg batter and fixin's are great too! Add-ons for the pancakes like blueberries or chocolate chips add to the fun. The service is awesome and we even met the owner, Jim, who is quite a character (don't miss his ice cream place down the street, J. B. Scoops). We'd go back to Griddle in the Middle in a heartbeat!
