We were on holiday in Seattle and The Pancake Chef was near our hotel. As per other reviews, don't let the look of it from the outside put you off. Inside it is a spotlessly clean old fashioned American diner with very friendly service. The...More

We stopped here to eat breakfast while we were on vacation. The country fried steak is amazing. The stuffed French toast is also amazing. Our service was a little poor but the food made up for it. ! I would go again !

Yes, it's true. There are still restaurants serving great Reuben sandwiches! Packed with filling and grilled to perfection, this rendition is to die for! It's the kind of sandwich that demands you put away your calorie counter and forget your low sodium diet. When you're...More

Pancake chef was a basic 1950s diner with all the original furniture, menus, and other style. The food was served hot and fresh. Waits was attentive and nice. Coffee was horrible, so get an orange juice.

We were on a family trip to Seattle and this restaurant is within walking distance from the Tukwila light rail station. Great local small town feel and we loved the fact that not much had been updated since 1962 except the orange juice machine. Best...More

Locals eat here. The restaurant was full, but service was well organized so I did not have a wait. I had the roast beef hash. It was mildly spiced but went well with my eggs and pancakes. Everything was cooked perfectly! Would eat here again.
