Came here with a group of 16 family members and they accommodated our large group with a smile. Some of the best breakfast food I've ever eaten. Everyone's plate looked absolutely mouth watering.

I am 60 years of age and have been going to the Pancake House as far back as with my grandparents. If there is a line-it is worth the wait.
