Had medical appointment nearby, so asked local for breakfast recommendations. Was directed to Flappy Jack's. since it was a weekday had no wait. Wait staff confirmed what we were told about weekend wait time... be prepared for 40 plus min. I had the Irish eggs Benedict with xtra crisp hash browns. Corned beef was best I have ever had, serving... More

This place is usually packed and open for breakfast and lunch only. Usually you are seated in 15 min. or less unless people sitting are overly chatty after their meal. They have so many good things on the menu and the portions are great, you won't be disappointed with anything you get. I've had them make me a tuna wrap... More

This is my favorite breakfast place on earth. Giant portions so I will be eating it for lunch too, the friendliest staff and just fantastic food. If you are hungry and anywhere even close to here you need to stop in. They also have a gigantic gluten free menu so everyone can have pancakes and waffles!

We ended up here because we were amused by the name. This restaurant is one you do not want to miss! There are so many choices on the menu and I don't think you could go wrong with any of them. I had to blueberry lemon pancakes which were delicious and they could have fed 3 people! Got there about... More

Good food at Flappy Jack's. I go there Sunday at 8:45 am and can never find a parking space. Maybe I should try another time!

Very popular restaurant that generally has a wait on the weekends. Not to long of a wait, but a small one. They have great food all around here and is worth the wait. You like cakes this is a great one for satisfying that need.

We wanted to try this place out. First things first they won't seat you unless your whole party is present which makes sense because it's not a huge place. The decor was great. I ordered the blueberry pancakes combo with scrambled eggs and house style potatoes (like hash browns). The eggs and potatoes were great. I was a bit disappointed... More

I have visited two of the Flappy Jacks locations...both are consistently great! They offer the biggest selection of gluten free pancakes! Being on a gluten free diet isn't easy and I'm always on the hunt for delicious gluten free splurges! I've also been there for lunch and the lunch specials are HUGE and so reasonably priced. LOVE the cobb salad... More
