You might wonder why the California Omelette is $12.50 until the plate arrives. It's a giant portion that could easily feed three people. I would suggest splitting dishes between people or at least be prepared to take some home or fulfill your daily 2000 calorie intake in one breakfast. It was well prepared and tasted great, except it included way... More

We went on a Wednesday morning about 9:30 and the place was packed. Because it was so full it became extremely noisy. However, food was very good and service was quick. Would go again.

If you like old fashioned, it truly doesn't get any better than this. We love Family House of Pancakes because it's like stepping back to a time where people gathered at the local diner to enjoy a hearty breakfast of classic favorites. I cannot stress enough that these are the BEST pancakes I have ever had... and I consider myself... More

Delicious food and service was great. The only negative if you can call it that, is that it is a lot of food. We had breakfast and had enough for two other breakfasts at home.

Family House is our go-to restaurant, ESPECIALLY for breakfast. You need to get there EARLY for breakfast on the weekends as the line can Build quickly but it is WELL worth the wait!!!! Portion sizes are HUGE, food quality is above standard, prices are MORE THAN reasonable and customer service is A+. We've been going there for years and will... More
