It was our last day and we ventured here for breakfast. It is a nice location. The food was good not great and you get a lot of it. I had pancakes (of course) and they were good. The staff was friendly and the seating outside made it nice.

Some of the best pancakes I have ever had! Think of this place as a whole in the wall restaurant, where the best pancakes are served!! Expect to get cozy with your table neighbors, but it's well worth it.

We went to Uncle Bill's Pancake House in a warm day, great weather for Manhatten beach. The waiters are not the fastest, but always with a smile . The dishes are very very big, even the kids' plates , so come hungry 😄

This place was great!! Short wait and right by the beach. The omelets were perfect!! We left feeling satisfied and not over stuffed. Wish we were staying longer to try their lunch menu.

I was here years ago on a business trip and it was a memorable meal. Could not remember the name but did remember approximate location. Found it easy and had another great breakfast.

Great location with super friendly staff and amazing food. We went here twice during our stay in LA. Can recommend the breakfast burrito with turkey, pancakes, hashbrown and waffle with bacon. A must visit!

Liked the French fries. They were hot and crisp. The sandwich was well filled with avocado and all for less than $10.00. Nice atmosphere with inside and outside seating and view of the waves in the distance

Enjoyed the food and the service was great - nice area near the water - with stronger coffee the place would be a 5!

I really loved Uncle Bills. The breakfast was amazing, they have a beautiful view and the service was spot-on. The only reason I am giving this place 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the fly issue they seem to have outside on the patio. Perhaps they could use some fly paper to help remedy the situation? Regardless, I... More
