Astronomical appropriately describes the quantity of food received. Unfortunately, astronomical did not always fit the quality of the food served. First the hits: Definitely kid friendly. Tolerant of the behavior often exhibited by younger children. The child's order of French toast produced a four nice pieces that were enjoyed by an eleven year old. Nancy (wife) enjoyed here waffle.

For what you pay, and for service you get. You're not going to have a great experience. Like we literally had to get up multiple times to ask for the most simple of things. If TIP stands for to insure promptness, these people surely didn't Know.

The food was very, very good. Service wasn't great but it could have been the yummy cinnamon pancakes I ordered. Waitress didn't say or never adressed the long wait for food. But the cinnamon pancakes were amazing. Everyone loved their food. Delicious!

We've eaten here several times in the past but not recently. As expected, because it was Easter Sunday, our group of four adults and two children had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. It was worth the wait as the food and service were both very good.

I have no idea why this place isn't rated higher. This was the best breakfast we had during our stay. The pancakes are HUGE and the eggs cooked to order and were perfect. Our waitress was so sweet and offered us refills on drinks to go. Very clean. We will be back on next trip.

I had to have a pancake. The server correctly advised they are big, full plate sized, so I had just one and it was a good one too!

Waitress was great, very cordial and friendly. The 12" buttermilk pancakes tasted like flour, had to be cut wirh a knife...definitely not light and airy as they should be.

So I want to be fair about the food and waitstaff - but I have to give them an average because if you are named "Astronomical Pancake" - you should make sure you make some good darn pancakes. (Actually I think the Astronomical part means the prices - see below under the "Bad") First the "Good" - the restaurant is... More
