We've been to the Country Pancake House many times with the family. The portions are huge and the food is good. You have to pay cash and there is usually a pretty long wait, but mostly it's worth it. Definitely our favorite breakfast place in Ridgewood.

Just got out of a meeting with friend. We were hungry and short on time. We were just passing and went in; sign on window said "best hamburger since 1992" Well, it was the worst hamburger I've ever had since 1992. There was only one server. Waited about 10 minutes before she came to give us the menu. The place... More

I love the pancakes at this place. They have the option of 2 enormous of 4 large pancakes and while i have never gotten the 2 enormous ones, I am usually stuffed after 2 of the large ones. The cornbread to start is delicious and all of the different pancake types have been great. Unfortunately the service here is terrible.... More

My friends and I had an awesome time here. They gave us warm, fresh cornbread to start off. It was delicious! Then my friends and I all ordered our own variations of the famous "oversized"pancakes. They were huge! I attached a picture of my hand compared to the size of the pancakes. We could only eat about half of one... More

The fun thing about going here are the really really big pancakes. I can never finish anything here and so I take it home. However, I end up throwing it out because I can't eat that many carbs.

The fun of going here is knowing you are getting a ton of good food that you are not going to be able to finish. It's a bit of a novelty and we always take friends and family here when they are visiting from out of town. We always leave with a doggy bag. Breakfast on weekends is crowded but... More

More about quantity than quality, but not terrible. There are lots of choices for classic breakfast fare and remains very popular with lunch/brunch lines on the weekends.

Disappointed with the hostes, she was very rude. Our server was pretty bad. Food was ok, french toast was good, but omelette was bland, just lacking flavor.

Wow! I've never seen such a thing. Definitely need to share something the next time I go (there will definitely be a next time). The portions are borderline a sin in my book. I mean, who can really eat this much?! Nevertheless, the service was good and the food was definitely worth writing about. Just watch out for unscrewed pepper... More
