Hands down one of the best breakfasts we have ever had and the service was terrific. We randomly selected this spot even though we have seen it for many many years. This will now be a go to for every upcoming year. We got the Plantation Breakfast, Breakfast Burrito, French Toast, Two-Two-Two and Eggs plate. We were all sharing and... More

Off the beaten track from all the other pancake houses in Williamsburg, Colonial Pancake House offers a large menu and the food is tasty. The wait staff was friendly and came around often to check on us. Prices are slightly higher than the other pancake houses.

While our son was going through AIT at Ft. Eustis, we visited this pancake house a couple of times. The food is excellent, the staff is wonderful, and we were lucky not to have a wait when we visited. Highly recommend. Lots of delicious food at a fair price!

Service was fast and polite. The French toast was excellent. The omelette was a little overlooked, but the biscuits were amazing. Average prices.

Yes, the pancakes were wonderful & so was the corned beef / no wonder they often run out of biscuits ... I could have eaten several! Fun server, very clean & happy place for breakfast!

Colonial had great breakfast options, pancakes with pecans and bananas, creamy grits, and more. Staff was friendly, food arrived fast, and was reasonably priced. Recommended before you head into Colonial Williamsburg for the day!

Some of the best pancakes I have ever had. I don't know what they put in them but they are just better than others. I had the Banana Nut Pancakes with plenty of whip cream on top and they were super tasty. Even though the restaurant was hopping, our food came out very quickly and very hot. Service was excellent,... More

Our hotel breakfast room was too crowded so we walked next door to the Colonial Pancake House. Breakfast was very good with speedy service and a discount coupon to make it even better.
