Went here for lunch and it was very good. Decor is functional but not spectacular. Service was very good and the food was great. Reasonable prices and a nice menu. We will try this one again.

I go to both Chris Pancake House or Chris Pancake at the Docket, for a weekend release of the work week and enjoy an excellent breakfast. Great turkey bacon. 😄

This place is a local favourite for obvious reasons: it is clean, very efficient and the food is very good. We arrived on Easter Friday morning so there were lots of people but also enough seating for everyone without the place seeming cavernous. Our waitress...More
