Our family enjoyed very good customer service by our waiter, who was very efficient and friendly. The food was good and consistent with what you would expect at Fryin' Pan. They cost was a good value. The only concern was the cleanliness of the restroom.

I come here all the time! It's amazing for family, friends or even solo. Sundays get busy after church goers but it is very welcoming with great service and food!

This is a small chain of sit-down family style restaurants. They do have a decent salad/soup bar. The menu is fairly basic stuff and while the food was hot and tasty, it was what you would expect from similar restaurants like Country Kitchen, Perkins, Dennys. Service was good.

Comparable to a Perkins but with a salad bar! Always delicious when I go (which is often). The staff is friendly, manager (Brian) is wonderful, and they give college students a discount!

Complete menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Especially popular with older folks who don't like to cook every day. Breakfast menu is excellent, and a good selection of burgers for lunch. Well known for its pies and other bakery treats, so a good place for afternoon coffee.

Food and atmosphere were typical of any 24 hr chain restaurant - nothing special. They do edge out others sightly because of the "all you can eat" soup and salad bar with select entrees. The place was VERY busy on a Tuesday at 12:30 pm and stayed busy for the time we were there. It was mostly large groups of... More

I was in Yankton visiting family and ate several times at the Fryn' Pan. The restaurant features a wide variety of food, well prepared and served with a smile. This is a small town hangout where consistent quality and service keeps repeat visitors coming back and that they do. Hat's off to the management and staff of this large and... More

When you are having a rough day, stop in for a Rosie's Special or an all meat omelet. If this doesn't make you feel better, try a coke with a giant cinnamon roll. That should do the trick!
