We visited for breakfast and were not disappointed. Has a great diner feel with really friendly and prompt service. Had pancakes - chocolate (yum!); pumpkin chocolate (yum!!) and buttermilk (oh, baby, yum!). Just loved the atmosphere and people. The food was reasonably priced and plentiful plates of pancakes!!

I was overwhelmed with the options for food, you could get breakfast, lunch and dinner at any point of the day. I walked in and there was a crowd for 11am on a Wednesday but I was sat immediately. I decided to go with the veggie omelette, it was heaven. There were generous portions and the server got me everything... More

Waited in line. very organized. Most people know what to order and regulars at the place. The pancakes were good, but not very good or nothing extraordinary.Service was fast and courteous. A good option for weekend breakfast if you are in the area.If there is a long line........you have other choices.

Classic old time Pancakes & Waffles House. Breakfast is served all day and with very ample portions. The prices are decent, service is as to be expected. Very efficient operation. Decor is dated, but one does not come here for the ambiance. The food is good. Parking can be a challenge. Convenient to SFO. Hard to beat!

A place where you can eat any meal in the menu anytime of the day. Meals are good size and delicous. It's a family friendly environment, and parking can be found around the neighborhood. Despite the excellent service, the wait time to be seated can be half hour or longer.

My husband and I recently had dinner at the Millbrae Pancake House while traveling in California. We wanted a place in walking distance of the La Quinta hotel where we were staying and it was recommended by the hotel's staff. We opted to have breakfast for dinner and it was SO GOOD! My eggs over easy were cooked perfectly, my... More

We stayed at a nearby hotel and walked here for an early dinner on a recent weeknight. I had the roast turkey plate and it was huge! The turkey was super tender, served hot. A tad salty though. Very reasonable prices too, and excellent service. The decor is a la 1950's. I loved it. I noticed that parking is limited... More

Needed a quick local dinner for one - found Millbrae pancake house on TripAdvisor. The restaurant was pretty empty, and a bit worn down. Food was ok and service average. I think it is better for mornings, lunches or afternoons - according to the waiter evenings are a bit slow.
