My husband and I ate here for Valentines breakfast. Was disappointed they had no hash browns no gravy and biscuits??? Really? This is the south. Too pricey for the meal we had. Waitress was greta.

That's why they named it Pancake Shop. Better breakfast across the street. Don't get me wrong their pancakes are really good. Just not a lot of variety on the menu.

This is a small place but has great service food and character. It feels like you are back in the 1950's eating at your local diner. It was truly one of the highlights of our stay in town.

We needed breakfast at 6 am before a tournament. The menu isn't fancy, but my child loved her french toast, and I enjoyed my tender, yet not runny, scrambled eggs, bacon, and rye toast with coffee. Reasonable prices and very warm and friendly staff.

We love the Pancake House, we eat here at least twice every time we come to visit. The full ham plate is enough for 2 people, maybe 3 if you get pancakes. The omelettes are pretty big and the apple butter is great. My wife loves that they have fresh squeezed OJ. The place is small and you will have... More

This place is the best little secret Hot Springs has to offer for breakfast!! ( no waffles) We late 10:30 but they are still full, but no waiting! The service was great as always! With servers that have been there 30 , 15, and 6 years ! Says a lot for any businesses!

The staff are very friendly and the food was decent, but they pack as many people as they can and it is a little claustrophobic. If there is a wait, they will tell you to go next door to a very nice little gourmet pantry shop that has complimentary coffee. I would not go out of my way to come... More

Pancake house is awesome for breakfast. I had the blueberry pancakes first day and the omelet the second. Get there early for a table.

We have been coming here for many years, and it never disappoints. Don't let the lines scare you off; they are very organized and are used to crowds. Go hungry, especially if you get the ham.
