So this is our second visit in a couple of years. First, the service, food and prices have stayed consistent (Plus). Wait time was 20 minutes, but always expect a wait. During this visit our waitress Emily did a great job and smiled the whole way from taking our order to bringing the check. I was dissatisfied for a couple... More

We were recommended by our hotel staff as this was the "goto" breakfast place for locals. The omelets were huge but not exceptional. The pancakes were tasty but not huge. Overall a good meal but not a must go to place.

I took my family for brunch at this restaurant on Valentine's Day. It was packed as usual. One thing I love about this restaurant is they use the "No Wait" App. If you don't know about it Google it. They are true to their time estimate, I wish they would teach other restaurants how to accurate measure a wait time.... More

Way overrated. An egg is an egg and Jim's and even Bill Miller's have better pancakes if not the variety. Pleasant atmosphere and good service though, but quite expensive. Certainly not worth it.

Ate here with my family and found it to be average. I didn't feel it was worth the wait. The food wasn't bad, it also wasn't anything special in my opinion. Our service was very good. I probably would not return.

I have eaten at Magnolia Pancake House many times over the years. Each time I ordered the Pfannekuchen, which is a pancake the size of a dinner plate filled with cinnamon apples. It is delicious! But the last 3 visits have been unsatisfactory and I will never eat there again. There is more pancake and less apples. This time even... More

We waited nearly 40 minutes to get a table for three. The food that came out was just average. I tried a Chicago like omelette with sausage and had the Banana Foster pancakes as well as an additional order of the bacon pancakes. My wife had an omelet with goat cheese. The pancakes were a lot smaller than I was... More

Like many people, I'm a big fan of breakfast so going to MPH for the first time raised my expectations. I can give it one star for service and one star for cleanliness, spaciousness and overall ambiance. My waffle was only ok, the chicken with it was over cooked and the poached eggs were only tepid and served in a... More

We ate there on a Wenesday morning around 9 AM and had to wait just a few minutes. Very busy. Pancakes and eggs were terrific - the potatoes and biscuits and gravy were not seasoned as we were accustomed to and so did not care for them Server was friendly and very quick.

The food was simple and totally wonderful! We just flew in and we drove directly, we thought we would wait for more than an hour and fortunately it was not that long! Once seated it all made sense! Server was lovely, very amicable and explained how the combos worked, made suggestions as we inappropriately asked for all the dishes around... More
