We chose Mama Steve's over the two IHOP restaurants on the street, expecting to hear a great story about how it was named. We didn't get that. We were given a printed sheet outlining the restaurant's ownership, which sadly, gave us no insight into the name. The pancakes were good, but it's tough to mess up pancakes. Nice, open, family-oriented... More

Nice, warm, friendly breakfast. Helpful waitress, average food. Not very large breakfast for the $. We'll probably try another mornin' spot next time around.

By far my favorite breakfast spot. It's a must visit every time I'm in town. I wish they'd update the decor, but the food is divine.

Worst pancake ever. Service was horrible. Only 2 waitresses and all they did was talk and ignore our table. Syrup containers were dirty and greasy and again no real butter, just a greasy "butter spread." Cannot imagine how they have remained in business this long. No comparison to Cracker Barrel where they serve real butter and warm syrup in a... More

You head in to a pancake house for decent food (not fine dining) and attentive service at a fair price. Mama Steve's delivers on all the points that matter.

Another recommendation we should have avoided. Over $30.00 for two orders of pancakes, one side of bacon and two coffees. The restaurant is dirty,especially the restrooms. The wait staff needs new or at least clean uniforms. We did not have a pleasant time eating there.

Stopped here for breakfast. Food was good, nothing special, but not bad. The place looks like it was out of the 1970's. Prices are fair. Service was good. I can't say anything bad about this place -- except there are lots of pancake houses in Williamsburg. This one is average.

This place is great for a bit to eat when you want breakfast at any time of the day. The staff is very friendly and accommodating for my young family.

This was our second trip to Williamsburg , Virginia this year in which was our 2nd time to Mama Steve's House Of Pancake's one in the early summer in which the atmosphere in the restaurant is so contagious and food so good you can't help but over eat and sit around and just get to meet people from the area...
