Stopped in for breakfast our 2nd day in town. All the basics available. Everything was good. Service and seated quickly. Seemed busy but waitresses managed well. All and all a good place to eat. Nothing special just basic. I think they had some special Italian breakfast sausages. I had one but not a big sassage guy.

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 was young, smiling and very pleasant. My husband ordered their bacon and eggs and hash... More

Chris' Pancake & Dining has a lot more to offer than just pancakes. Breakfast is available all day long, but there is also an extensive menu of soups, salads, sandwiches, and dinners. Special deals are available on Tuesdays for a very moderate price. Because of all the moderate prices and children's menu, Chris' is popular among families. My family has... More

Went here for the first time to celebrate my sisters birthday and was quite impressed with the menu and food. I had one of the specials, the pretzel bratwurst benedict with the beer cheese sauce. Absolutely unbelievable dish! Also tried my kids waffle and one of the best waffles I have ever had. This place was amazing, wish they were... More

We stumbled into this local place while looking for a place to have breakfast. We ordered a turkey sausage breakfast special and an off the menu Bavarian breakfast and they were home-cooking delicious. The coffee was also very good. All for $20 was a great deal! Will defintely come back for breakfast and dinner.

My daughter and I tried Chris' Pancake for the first time this past weekend. It was great. Although we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, it was totally worth it. Our server was friendly, efficient and the food was excellent. We had eggs, pancakes, hash browns, toast, bacon, the works. It all arrived fresh and delicious. And... More

Our relatives knew of this unassuming breakfast place, thank heavens. It was packed when we arrived on a Sunday morning, but they do a great job of churning the tables so the wait is not nearly as long as you think it's going to be. (And yet once you're seated, they don't give off hurry-up signals.) To pacify you while... More
