There was a huge line out the door to get in, which seems to be the usual case. It's great because you know people love it, but it makes it very frustrating if you're hungry and have to wait forever. It's also extremely packed inside...More

We stopped in right after opening on Sunday morning. No wait, food was there within minutes. Some of the best pancakes we have had. When we go back, will definitely be stopping again. Around 10 am there will be a line to get in.

We love lunch at the Pancake Pantry. On a recent visit, we had 13 family members. They quickly seated us at two tables next to each other. Everyone got different things and all were pleased with the food and the service.

I love love the food. Period! Worth every penny. Just a side note they does not accept any cards so you better have cash handy. This place is absolutely highly recommended. I would go back in a heartbeat!
