Let me start by saying this is not a bad review per say, and our experience wasn't terrible. However, some things could be improved to make this a really terrific Restaurant, and it already has the name recognition. Now I'm a frequent traveler, and have eaten at breakfast places all the country, and our family also own property a short... More

Visited on Veteran's day at 10 am and waited 20 minutes for a table, to me a sign of good food and its true! Coffee was very good, bacon cooked perfect and a good smoky flavor...pancakes light and fluffy and senior prices outstanding value. Will definitely return.

We stop in for breakfast every trip. Except for once when a waitress was pounding dishes at a table for not getting a tip, and same trip it was obvious one waitress was trying to take bigger tables, it's never disappointed us. Food has always been good. It's the staff that can be an occasional hit or miss.

Quite an appealing and delicious variety to choose from. Only had breakfast, so not sure about other meals. We checked with locals who recommended here. The line of people waiting made us try elsewhere but, fortunately for us, we ended up full circle and never regretted our decision! Or fault for sleeping in late- kids went about 9am and didn't...

The group enjoyed a variety of items from the menu - eggs, pancakes, omelets, biscuits, and lots of sides. Prices were very reasonable! There were no complaints!

A busy restaurant that is both a neighborhood destination and a tourist destination. It has great food, and great service. They can be very busy on the weekends so call ahead to see what the wait time is. You CAN'T go wrong at Comptons.

If you want the best breakfast in Stroudsburg, check out Compton's Pancake house for fresh omelets, all kinds of pancakes, breakfast steaks, and the famous Double "Triple Play". We have everything related to breakfast amd our meals are simply delicious. Some of our pancake varieties include the buckwheat, Whole Wheat Caramel, Cheesecake, just to name a few. The famous Compton pancake is a secret recipe made from scratch every day, and is so good, you don't even need syrup on it. We're the home of the Double "Triple Play" - a hearty delight that includes two pancakes, two eggs, two strips of bacon, homefries and toast - for the great low price of just $4.25. It's an unbeatable meal, but make sure you bring an appetite! Compton's Pancake House serves breakfast all day, but we have lunch too! Stop by for your favorite finger food like the Fried Chicken Sandwich, Tuna Salad Sandwich, Ruben Melt and many more items. We're proud to offer a friendly atmosphere that's accommodating and polite. Inside out spacious dining space we have 125 seats that include a long diner-style counter top and booths, and a cozy fireplace near the rear.
