“Locals LOVE Astronomical!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The Astronomical Pancake house is one of only two pancake houses that we'll eat at as locals.

The other is the Capitol. The food, service and price is awesome at the Astronomical and we continue to eat here.

Someday they'll have Jalepenos for the omelettes......someday......

“Large portions and good service”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

The pancakes are huge and the service was good but the food was only luke warm when it arrived. I had to use a knife to cut the waffle, which was kind of rubbery. The milkshakes are good though, even for breakfast.

Very good pancakes - Limited menu - Fresh fruit on the pancakes as advertised, Sevice was average, pancakes are Large & fluffy. Price was reasonable. I would eat there again.

“Good food, very nice wait-staff”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

After a late evening at Busch Gardens, waking up to a good breakfast was needed! We were seated quickly, and the waitress was quite nice. Food was hot and fresh, but the pancakes had way too much whipped topping... we had to remove most of it before letting our 6-yr old daughter start eating... otherwise, she would have just eaten the topping! Would rather have Coke products, but that's ok, they had a good selection of juices. I would certainly recommend to any family in the area... especially since in Williamsburg, you have numerous pancake choices! HA!

“Great breakfast if you are in Williamsburg”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We found this place based on reviews while visiting Great Wolf Lodge. I explained to my kids why it was named Astronomical after we got our pancake order. Big portions, friendly service, tasty breakfast.
