“Good food but a bit pricey and a long wait.”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

The food was good and our waitress was excellent, but I probably wouldn't stand in line again for it. They do offer about any flavor pancakes or waffles I can imagine, but if you're just looking for a standard with maybe blueberries or strawberries you can certainly find less expensive alternatives in the area.

“Yum”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

What a wonderful breakfast we had. They food was yummy, the service was fast and efficient.
It is a bit pricey so may not be the best choice for families on a budget. But the servings are huge, so they may be appropriate for spliting for young children

“Less line than expected”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

We went for a late lunch on a Monday, and had to wait only a few minutes in line. The place was full, but they move people through quickly. Food came quickly, and was good. The waitress was nice and attentive. We had pancakes, pecan pancakes, eggs and hashbrowns. My child loved it, too! Bill foe 2 of us was about $25, with both of us eating adult portions.

“Not worth the high price and chaos...”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

The food is amazing, but it is NOT worth the 30 minute wait-there is very little indoor wait seating, so we had to stand out in the freezing cold in line. When we got inside, the place was insane. The tables are so close to each other you can easily elbow the person at a neighboring table when you slide out of your chair! The service was slow, and after a half hour wait for a table we were not in the mood to wait another 20 minutes for the food. When the bill finally came it was astronomical. I get that the place is world famous, but the reputation far exceeds reality. Save the time, irritation and money-go to Flapjack's.
