sent the pancake back 5 times due to it being BURNT! the manager approached me and I stated that the cook needs to learn how to cook pancakes (after all, it is a pancake house!). He then told me that most of the customers want...it that way. For the last time they made it for me I told them to cook it for 2 minutes on one side and 2 minutes on the other side. It was then made right.More

Stopped by this wonderful Restaurant... two times for a wonderful Breakfast.The service is just tremendous...even though when I was here this place was busier. Than the railroad station at Grand Central Station ,NY. After your order... you'll be surprised & amazed how soon it's delivered...to your table. Even though it's extremely busy... they try to seat you as soon as possible . Excellent service all around... Plus meeting & talking to Haj the manager on May 26th 2019 made my day .I hope he's still working here on my return trip to this Restaurant in May 2020.More

My husband and I took a friend for a Mother's Day breakfast. There was a very long wait list, but we were seated within 15 minutes. The menu is quite extensive and we each chose something different. The service was very good, the food was...very good but could have arrived hotter. Due to the amount of patrons you have to excuse something and I chose not to say anything about the food being "warm, not hot". Very clean, lovely staff and we will try it again when it is not a holiday.More

The service was very good. our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food was okay. I have Biscuit and gravey with over easy egg. The egg was cooked perfectly though they were cold.The gravey lacked flavor and the biscuits were tough. My wife had...eggs and corn beef hash. Her meal was not warm either. This is a one in done in out book. We were hoping for better.More

I love eating here when I come home to visit because they have many Gluten Free options. Pancakes, French Toast, bread an entire Gluten Free menu. The menu is huge as well as the portions. I had the GF pancakes with the best cinnamon butter...ever! Crispy Bacon and a fabulous Greek omelet. Way too much food but I ate it all! Also whenever I’m in town the owner/manager always remembers me, a really great place to eat!More

We had the potato pancakes with a side of cooked apples. Service was good, just the right amount of attention, and the food quite good...maybe more than we should have had when we couldn't take the leftovers with us. We left quite satiated.

This restaurant gets a very good because there isn’t much more they could do better, except update the decor. It’s cheap food with fast service. Don’t expect anything fancy. Some weird things on the menu like sausage and bacon wrapped in a pancake, just sounded...too strange to order. The portions are huge so you could share.More

We recently had breakfast at Mother's Pancake and thoroughly enjoyed it. They have a large and varied menu and each entrée was delicious. We particularly like the eggs Florentine and the crepes. And we particularly like the roomy and attractive atmosphere and very professional and...friendly waitresses. We'll go again soon.More
