Breakfast with my daughter while visiting Stanford. Fairly typical menu. My pancakes were dry and crumbly. Service was slow. Her omelet was good, large...but unexceptional. Bacon was overlooked and pedestrian. Overall, not really worth the calories and definitely not worth the cost.

This average breakfast spot always has lines out the door. I Don't get it. Breakfasts are average, and not worth waiting a long time for. Lots of kids/families. Chairs/table too close together.

The wait time was quick, evening for Sat brunch. Food was Good and a very good variety. Atmosphere was nice, not to loud.

Stacks MP (which is owned by a different owner than the Stacks RWC*) is a well-run place with great food. Plan to wait 45mins on weekends and for a noisy dining room, but it's all part of the experience. Free coffee out front while you wait and chat with passer-bys. *RWC Stacks is same performance - great...

We had a good breakfast. The service was great, the employees really worked as a team serving and clearing.

I'm a breakfast guy. Stacks is a great local place. Come early on weekends as there's always a long line. I try for lunch in weekdays, it's great.

Stacks tastes like you are eating at a hotel in the middle of nowhere with nothing to compare it to. The eggs seem like they have been poor from a container instead of cracked one by one and the pancakes are uneventful.

I was there with a 3 year old and we both enjoyed our time. Service was efficient and she loved her Minnie Mouse pancake :-) Try it, you'll like it!

My kids and I went for pancakes, they were very good, no wonder waiting in line for half an hour! I realized better quality in their ingredients, however that is reflected in their prices. Expect to pay 1.5 times more than in a ihop or Denny's.

We went here on a Saturday morning around 9:20 and were fortunate to get a table right away. The menu was great; I always love it when there are at least several thins on the menu that sound good, so that deciding is difficult! Our waitstaff was attentive and the food was great. Large portions and very tasty.

Thank Allison B
