Good wait staff, fairly crowded restaurant because it's so popular. Go early or expect a long wait. Breakfast foods are top notch. Love the omelettes-- they are chock full of toppings. Pancakes are good as well.

I've been going to Ocean City, MD and to Happy Jack for years. About two years ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, so I have to avoid any type of wheat, rye or barley, which means eating breakfast away from home is usually next to impossible.

The food was ok. The wait staff was nice and the food was ready quickly. They are only open on the weekends during the off season so call ahead of time to make sure they are open.

I have been going here as long as I can remember and it never disappoints. If you are a pancake lover you must try this place. And if you don't like pancakes there are plenty of other delicious choices.
