The portions served here are large! They have a great family atmosphere, and the service is great! You will be asking for a to go box! :)

More good food per person than any one individual could possibly eat in one sitting. I have never had a bad meal and have always taken enough for home to serve another meal! Highly recommend, but go hungry and ready to enjoy a great selection...More

Can't go wrong with a good old fashioned family breakfast. Service was good and prices were even better. Plenty of parking and easy to find. Can get pretty busy so go early. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Family House of Pancakes is an old school family run restaurant. The staff is friendly, the portions are large and delicious and the price is reasonable. Be prepared to wait if you visit during the breakfast rush but it is completely worth the wait!

Be hungry when you visit or be ready to eat lots of left-overs. Their omelettes are THE BEST! There's always a long line on Sunday mornings, so plan ahead. Fancy it isn't but if you want excellent food and service, this is your place!

You might wonder why the California Omelette is $12.50 until the plate arrives. It's a giant portion that could easily feed three people. I would suggest splitting dishes between people or at least be prepared to take some home or fulfill your daily 2000 calorie...More

I've been coming here for years even gave me my first job 19 years ago. Good food always cooked to order, lots of selections. From massive pancakes to 9-12 egg omelette over stuffed with whatever you like. I always get the chopped ham and eggs....More
