Hard to rate during these times, but the place was clean and the staff was friendly. The food came out fast, so that worked out. Good restaurants as diners go. Plenty of people socially distanced, so they must do a great business. I would meet...customers back there.More

I have been to Downers Delight Pancake House on many occasions with friends. It is a nice place to eat. Personally, I like either the chicken caesar salad or one of their fantastic omelettes. WARNING on pricing, however: once I was charged an additional dollar...for having a very small amount of bbq sauce on the side of one of my meals.More

Great restaurant and wonderful staff. A very homey feel, with wonderful and helpful staff. I love their Saganaki, and have tried many different things on their menu over the years. Always great for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

We go here at least once a month and am happy 98 percent of the time. The menu is extensive and prices are reasonable. We either go here for breakfast as their skillets are awesome and huge (I either take some home or the hubbs...helps me finish it) or we like to go on Sundays (we call it our Greek Sunday ) starting out with the very best saginaki around, awesome cream of chicken and rice soup and a gyro sandwich which is equally as awesome. Even their burgers are awesome and they cook them to your liking which is not easy to find a place to do that anymore. They even make a pizza burger upon request as that is one of my favorite burgers that is not on the menu any more. It used to be but is not anymore but still make it if I request it. The prices are right on par to others restaurants I don't know why people complain about the prices if they want cheap go to McDonald's. This is not McDonald's or Burger King. The prices are reasonable food is fresh and portions are very good. We love this local gem and hope they stay in business for years to come.More

Good food, large portions. I especially enjoy sitting on the patio when the weather is nice. Service is always good.

Be advised that, choosing to sit on the right as you enter, assures you poor to no service. My wife and I waited fifteen minutes after receiving a menu and finally having to call to the attention of the hostess/cashier to have our order taken....Apparently, the tables on the left as you enter and the outside is where the service is centered on. Food is acceptable but not worth the treatment.More

This is your typical local Greek owned Family restaurant. They have a huge menu. The food to me is warm not hot so I have to send it back to get warmed up. They are a little pricey for a local place, but in a...pinch they are a good option in our area. They have a large private room if you wanted to host a small/medium size party.More

I have eaten at this establishment for the past ten years or so and one thing has become abundantly clear. The standard of great food that once was Downers Delight has now become something less than average. We stopped this evening and ordered two simple...meals, our server was friendly, efficient and kept great tabs on us. Our food on the other hand was less than stellar. The gravy that was served with both entrees was oil based, very little beef or any real flavoring and a dull, greyish beige color, completely unappetizing. Our portions were decent size of boring food, mashed potatoes that had no flavor, meat that lacked flavor and canned blah vegetables. It was food and nothing more. Generous portions, yes but blah taste, reasonably priced, not really, $35 w/o tip for two entrees and two soft drinks.More

A friend and I were looking for a place that served breakfast food at about noon on Sunday where we wouldn't have to wait for 30 minutes to be seated. Tired of checking different places, we decided to give this place a try, even tho...it looked quite busy and it seemed like there was probably a significant wait time. Much to our surprise, the restaurant seemed very well organized and we were seated in probably 10 minutes or less. We then noticed that the prices were quite reasonable for the quality and quantity of food provided, and the service was far above average!More

I am sorry, but I do not know the answer. I have never eaten there for dinner. I suppose you could contact them directly as I don't see a website for them.
