Very good breakfast at the lake. Generous portions and friendly staff. Priced right and comfortable seating in and outside. There may be a wait on weekends during the busy tourist season but a must stop for a very good meal.

When we walked in, we were immediately greeted by a smiling/friendly face. There aren't a lot of tables, but sometimes, those are the best places!! Once we were seated and got our food, we weren't disappointed! The pancakes are huge! If you're getting food for just you, start with the short stack! I promise you won't leave hungry after that!!...

We have been coming to the pancake house since it first opened on KK with Helen! Helen has since passed, but her family carries on the tradition and the food is still very good. We were with family and sampled many different things. Pancakes, bacon, scrambled eggs, hash; everyone was happy! Actually, next time I go I'm going to order... More

Staying at Tan Tar a...looking for an affordable breakfast with kid meals. They loved the chocolate chip and banana pancakes. Husband loved veggie omelet and gluten free pancake. Good breakfast and great service. Small place, be prepared to wait for a table.

The place is very small, wait time is sometimes pretty long. Not good if you want to stay and visit over coffee. Food was really good, priced decent.

Service was good, though tables were very small (we were at a tall table by the counter, there was to be a wait to sit in the back). Eggs, meat and pancake special was good. The guy said if you ate eight pancakes, you got a tshirt. (I ate one and was stuffed) :)

Few places at the lake make me all swelled up with pride, but this one does. Wife and I have ate here many times, and we try to make it early on a Saturday and beat the rush. My all time favorite is the corned beef hash. To die for is all I can say. All home made from scratch.

The OJ is quite expensive, but otherwise we loved this place. Really good food-we had the Egg sandwich/hashbrowns and the Number 2 (bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, pancake). Everything tasted just as you would expect...really good service. Would definitely go again!

Everything was outstanding! Couldn't finish all the food but really wanted to. Needs a little more seating but so worth waiting!
