“Wish we had had time to go again!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

This place stands head and shoulders above other breakfast places both in quality of food and in service! Stack 'em high pancakes is set up semi-cafeteria style where you walk in, pick out any cold sides or beverages you'd like, place your order at the register and your food is brought out to you when ready. Usually breakfast food is breakfast food (which is tasty and difficult to mess up), but every single one of us who ate there remarked at how spectacular the food was - excellent belgian waffles, omelets, pancakes (they have several tasty options for add-ins to upgrade your pancakes), hash browns, etc. The employees are very attentive in terms of clearing plates and even bringing drink refills. One of us in our group was pregnant and the lady who was making pancakes that day asked her due date and then made special pancakes with a picture of a little baby and the due date. It was so sweet!! Love this place!

“very friendly service and busy place”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Stack'em High is very popular and has very friendly service. You enter via a buffet line where you help yourself to drinks and place your order. Food is brought to the table. Servers circle around very often offering casual conversation and hot coffee refills. This place is super casual and perfect for larger groups and families. In addition to pancakes, there are omlettes, wraps, belgian waffles, and other typical short order breakfast fare.

“Really good breakfast and service.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Counter ordering with food brought to the table. Both times we ate here the line seemed long but, moved surprisingly fast. Eggs, omelets, and pancakes are all good. Food arrived at our table quite quickly and service, in general, was excellent.

“We weren't impressed”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

My parents really wanted a breakfast out and my dad loves pancakes, so we went to Stack 'em High. There was absolutely nothing outstanding about any of our meals. It was $26 for my husband and me, before tip. Too much for the quality of the food.

“Cafeteria-Style Ordering”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

My wife and I ate breakfast here during our vacation in OBX. She ordered the Greek Omelet and I had the "Green Eggs & Ham" omelet. We both enjoyed our meals. Although I thought it to be a bit pricy, the food was good, the staff was very friendly, and the service quick. Of note, you travel down a cafeteria-style counter, picking up drinks, fruit, etc. then order your entree, which is delivered to your table afterwards.
