“Norval Pancake Factory, I keep going back!”

Love the place and only one thing, for some reason you cannot get a cell phone signal inside that building, Lol which I consider a huge plus!

“Good food, big portions but sometimes crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

I've been here several times for breakfast, always on a weekday to avoid the lineups at the weekend. Large portions. Fresh fruit skewer/garnish a nice touch on the breakfast entrees. Service is sometimes slow (e.g. refill coffees) since there's usually only 1 waitress on weekday mornings.

“Prepare To Be Ignored... Food Is Great Once You Are Seated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

My husband and I have eaten here far too many times to count. The atmosphere in the restaurant is kitchy, down-home and looks a bit unkept. The food here is really, really good. The only problem we have, and it has driven my husband so crazy that we no longer go, even though the food is so good, is that you are left standing at the door and the staff passes by you, not even acknowledging you, while there are clearly many tables open in the restaurant. They eventually get around to seating you, but by that time my husband is so annoyed he has a hard time enjoying his meal. There are several servers here that are very, very nice and go out of their way to make your experience as nice as they can once you are seated (thank you Ashley and Erica). The other issue is waiting forever to have your coffee refilled. Still, with all of the above you can't take issue with their food... it is quite good.

“Small restaurant but good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Norval Pancake House has become an institution in the Norval and Georgetown areas. The food is good, family style cuisine and at a reasonable price. Their main specialty is breakfast with lots of combo choices. My only complaint is that they are a small restaurant, at the back of a convenience store and you always have to wait for a table, especially on the weekends. They are victims of their own success I guess. Worth a visit (if you can get in).

“Great food but often a long wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

The food is great, but as many other reviewers have stated, there is often a wait to get in. I like to go during the week, instead of on the weekend, as the line up isn't long on week days. Portions are great and they always serve fresh fruit with breakfast. I highly recommend the food.
