Been here three times for breakfast and have yet to finish a pancake order because they are huge and great! When you add in some sides, you won't go away hungry! The country ham is really good. Service is always excellent.

Astronomical pancakes are literally astronomical.... The pancakes were bigger than my face. I would recommend sharing a dish! They were delicious especially with strawberries on top! I ate about 1/4 of my pancake platter. Good find, but next time will know to share!

A pancake order was 2 ginormous pancakes. My husband and I were able to share. Buttermilk pancakes were sweet. My son ordered French toast and got 6 slices! The bathroom was not the most clean, however

We visited with a group of 12 at 10 am on a Saturday. Had a little of a wait for a table (nice that we didn't have to break up). Everyone enjoyed their food. Nice creamy grits. Good omelets. HUGE pancakes, thus justifying the name....More
