I like being able to have French toast any time of the day and this is where I go when I want it. I'm never disappointed and the prices are great! Eggs and bacon are good too.

Stopped in for a late breakfast and the place was packed. Got seated within a reasonable time period and the service was food and the waitress friendly. Was disappointed with my pancakes, however, as they were lukewarm and wouldn't even melt the butter. Had eaten here previously so perhaps it was just a one time incident, but was still disappointing.

Orders were promptly taken. Breakfast arrived in a reasonable timeframe. I ordered a sausage omelette. It was tasty. Came with hash browns which were great. Biscuit was cold and... More

Customer Service was okay, not the greatest I have seen, the food was very expensive and was not the best tasting for a Pancake House Diner.

Four of us went in for lunch, a family outing. We found a seat immediately and were greeted promptly by our server, who gave us menus and took our drink orders. We noticed right off that the prices were really high on many things. One of the daily "specials" was a small bowl of veggie soup w/ a grilled cheese... More

I frequently visit this pancake house several times a month. The ladies working here always provide great service, no complaints. My last three visits were not so pleasant. One waitress in partucular , Krista, walked past me five times. The first time this happened, I let it go. However, when I came in the third time on a separate occasion... More

One thing I have always said is, "how many ways can you mess up an egg" well this morning I found out, I ordered hard and they came runny. The wife got cold eggs. I've taken this place of my list! The bill for our breakfast came to over $16.00 dollars, felt like I got taken for a ride! Not... More

We found this gem on a previous trip to Salem. We made sure to visit on this trip as well. The service is wonderful, the people are very friendly and the food is AMAZING! This is the only place I know of that serves fried bologna. The pancakes are to die for! We will definitely be returning in the future!

Visited for the first time on Good Friday. It was slammed! But the service was actually speedy and the kitchen was kickin' out the chow. Everything we ordered was delicious - from the pancakes to the gravy. The wait staff was well coordinated and the coffee cups never ran dry. Great experience.

We enjoyed our breakfast with lots of choices. Personally I enjoyed the hash browns, fried eggs, and whole wheat toast.
