Great restaurant that offers an awesome discount for military personnel. You will not leave hungry and the food is delicious.

Average pancake house/diner type of place that we stopped at while driving thru Indiana. The food and coffee were good, but nothing outstanding. Service was good. The one odd thing about this place was that the bench in the booth we were sitting in was really high, my feet didn't touch the ground. I noticed it was the same in... More

Before heading home from a fun weekend at Notre Dame, we stopped at APH for some pancakes. My daughter and I split a skillet. The resulting split was more than enough for me. Pancakes were awesome. Our waitress was friendly and service was great. A busy restaurant usually means people like the food--- that was the case here.

It was my husband's birthday and I wanted to go to the best place in South Bend for breakfast. It was Sunday morning so we had to wait to be seated. Desk said 10-12 minutes but we were seated in less than 10. Service was great especially recognizing the place was busy. I had the blueberry pancakes that had blueberries... More

After having had a few lousy breakfasts while visiting South Bend we were lucky to find this gem. The eggs, country fried steak skillet and pancakes were excellent and the service was courteous and prompt.

Stopped for a Sunday morning breakfast and they must have thought I was a farmer with all the food they gave me. If you are seeking breakfast almost anything you can dream up will be on the huge breakfast menu. 6 pages of breakfast goodies. A delightful surprise: first thing the waitress arrived at my table with a saucer of... More

Needed a decent breakfast and thankfully this place didn't disappoint. Service was fast but friendly. Many options to choose from. Being an omelet lover - I ordered just a basic ham & cheese omelet which was HUGE! Hash browns were perfect. Orange juice is a must - freshly squeezed.

Ate breakfast here with a table for 10. The service was excellent, the food was good. The restaurant could use some updates but it was clean. The water pressure in the bathroom was bad.

Tried this because it was recommended on tripadvisor. A lot of food for the money and good service as well.

Old fashioned pancake house. Not a chain. Quick service. Coffee refills come before the level drops more than an inch in the cup. Great menu selection. Pancakes were great. Bacon was so - so. Coffee was a good brew. Can't go wrong here. Just north of the turnpike entrance on Michigan.
