“Not impressed at all- try it once since its a cool concept, but won't be back again!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Not impressed-- a cool concept and fun to make your own pancakes, eggs, grilled cheese etc- but beyond the pancakes the food is mediocre at best. The service was poor- waited forever for our food, our server forgot or messed up half our order, and had to be reminded half a dozen times to bring anything else we needed. Its especially annoying to had bad service when they were not even that busy and didn't have to do anything since we were cooking it all ourselves! Expect breakfast to last a good hour and half. Ok to try but won't be going back anytime soon.

“Great for young families”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

If you don't mind the smell of grease, this place is great for young families. A lot of fun to make your own pancakes. Fairly expensive for breakfast but the experience makes it worth it. The food was good but the smell of grease was kind of strong.

“clever and entertaining”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

such a neat idea. you are seated around a table with a griddle in the middle. friendly waitresses bring you your batter (eggs or pancakes--plain and uncooked) as well as little ramekins of mix-ins, plus spatulas. you pour your batter making pancakes or omlettes as big or small as you'd like and add as much or as little of your toppings as you'd like. my son-who normally eats like a bird and dislikes having to stop playing to go out for a meal was engaged and wide-eyed the entire time. plus he ate twice as much as usual since he was so excited to be making the food. my group of 7 was happy with the quality of the food and enjoyed the whole experience. I know when we visit the lake again, breakfast at the griddle in the middle will be a priority.

“Unique experience!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

This restaurant is what you get when you combine a great breakfast styled diner with a Japanese hibachi meal! Every table has a griddle in the middle and they have a great deal at unlimited (plain) buttermilk pancakes for $5.55. Toppings are reasonable but cost a bit extra. I added raspberries and had enough for an entire meal! Everyone gets to customize and create their own breakfast in the middle of your table, no prep or cleanup, just the fun! The owner was walking around talking to customers and the other wait staff was very polite and attentive and everyone had a fun attitude creating a great atmosphere and a "feel like a kid again" experience. They also gave my son a chef hat with his name on it. Can't say enough good about this place, we LOVED IT!

“A GREAT WAY TO START YOUR DAY!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We were in the Lakes area, Meredith, New Hampshire and were told about
a breakfast restaurant that was a new concept: so we decided to try it
WELL! Great food, good service and a fun way to start your day. I
can't say enough good things about it. Everyone was happy and full!
My recommendation: Don't miss it!
