Probably the largest pancakes we have ever been served - they were just slightly bigger than the plate! One pancake would definitely do! Overall, the pancakes were good, but not stellar. The staff was attentive and did well considering it was packed when we were there. Great solid choice for families - upbeat and a bit noisy - but no... More

Astronomical is the best description of the pancakes here. One pancake here is enough for one person. Well prepared and great service.

We came here today for lunch and suffice it to say we will never return! We waited for our food for over an hour and when it finally arrived our burgers were literally raw- as in cold in the center! WOW! Lesson learned.... the hard way unfortunately.

We went to Astronomical pancake and Waffle House today for breakfast. We waited twenty minutes to be seated and then what felt like even longer to get our food after ordering.

The pancakes are huge as you would expect by the name of the restaurant. Even the slices of toast are huge. Overall the food is very good and prices are reasonable. As some reviews said, the service was a bit slow but not a problem.

Astronomical appropriately describes the quantity of food received. Unfortunately, astronomical did not always fit the quality of the food served. First the hits: Definitely kid friendly. Tolerant of the behavior often exhibited by younger children. The child's order of French toast produced a four nice pieces that were enjoyed by an eleven year old. Nancy (wife) enjoyed here waffle.

For what you pay, and for service you get. You're not going to have a great experience. Like we literally had to get up multiple times to ask for the most simple of things. If TIP stands for to insure promptness, these people surely didn't Know.

The food was very, very good. Service wasn't great but it could have been the yummy cinnamon pancakes I ordered. Waitress didn't say or never adressed the long wait for food. But the cinnamon pancakes were amazing. Everyone loved their food. Delicious!
