Was camping nearby and went here for breakfast one morning. Food was quite good. An older woman sitting nearby was absolutely hilarious. Great place overall. Should probably give it 5 stars, but something prevents me from doing so.

The wait was a little on the long side (when isn't it at Keyes?) but worth it. The food is always good there & the staff always have a smile for us even though the place is always really busy.

Keyes Pancake House always looks so quaint and inviting but, unfortunately we picked a day in early October when everyone from the cook and kitchen help to the waitresses and the table cleaners were in a argumentative mood. Needless to say it was the customers who had to suffer the most. There was a lot of yelling and not much serving going on. The food was OK when it did come but, the wait was way too long. A few customers just got up and left. There are much better places to eat breakfast and lunch in Old Forge, NY and surrounding area. Judging from the other reviews, I guess that this one is off our list for good.

We waited 15 minutes to be sat once we sat the waitress said it would be 45 minutes to when food would come out. Usually breakfast is served pretty quickly so I think they were shot staffed in the kitchen. Our server was not friendly, I had to flag her down to get more coffee. The bathroom was disgusting. However the home fries were really good. Next time I visit Old Forge I will try a different place for breakfast.

We stayed in Old Forge for a wedding and went past this place on the way to our hotel. Located on the main drag, the red and white building and sign are hard to miss. We had breakfast there two days and found the food really good. My wife had chocolate chip pancakes that were huge and loaded with chocolate chips. I had the stuffed belgian waffle that turned heads when it came to the table. Both were good. There is something special about their batter that made the pancakes and waffles taste special. Coffee was freshly brewed and tasty. All they offer is whole milk, no skim or 2%. The next day we had omelets that hit the spot. The service was a little slow with a full house (Sunday morning), but the waitresses did hustle when they were busy. Get a booth along the front windows and watch the world go by while you eat.
