When my wife and I come to Ocean City, Happy Jack's is always a stop for breakfast 2 or 3 times per week. The staff is always super pleasant and the food is always outstanding. Will continue to be a staple for our vacation plans...when we visit.More

First time here and so impressed we are going back tomorrow. Fast friendly staff, excellent food. Great and big cups of coffee, plus they offer you a to-go cup if you didn't finish. Reasonable prices, lots of food. Family owned and they all work as...a team.More

Go to Happy Jacks during each visit to ocean city. Best pancakes in town. New this year included outdoor seating which was great for social distancing.

Awesome pancakes and the server was very nice and friendly. Service was also fast. They were very busy but only waited 20-30 minutes and it was worth it! One of our favorites!!

The pancakes are very good, definitely choose those. The Benedicts are equally bad, avoid those for certain. Both the coffee and the service were excellent. Would I return; yes but I would not order any of the Benedicts.

Excellent breakfast location with ample parking provided in attached lot. Pecan pancakes and very berry French toast choices this time around. Waitress friendly and prompt Many choices in menu. Every one we have tried is very good. Go early as a line was formed waiting...to get in when we left around 930 AMMore

This is my husband’s childhood favorite! So, it was a no brained when we visited with our large family we’d stop by. The food was delicious and the service was superb. Our waitress handled our party of 16 flawlessly. We were split into two tables...side by side with 5 kids under 6 and she never missed a beat. The best service I’ve had anywhere in a while.More

I asked the hostess as we entered, and she had a separate sheet that she gave me. Brought a GF pancake syrup as well. It looked like most of their pancakes could be made using the GF flour.
