What a cute little local establishment and super close to South Bay at the Gulf. Delicious, fast service and friendly!

So disappointing! Really great menu, poor performance + expensive.

I got the bananas foster pancakes. Light on bf syrup, maybe HALF a banana...maybe. A large teaspoon of nuts....all for $10? No thanks. No sides unless you want to spend another $3. Orange juice $3, nope.

My daughters pancakes with strawberry were slightly better but anyone could duplicate this and double the fruit and throw a piece of bacon or sausage on and put this place out of business.

Only good thing was they had a signed picture of Art Alexakis at the front desk.

$25 for two pancakes and a glass of tea with tip is robbery.

We visited the Pancakery with 8 people total, four adults, two teens and two children. Although it was a late breakfast (10:30ish) we still had about a 1/2 hour wait. Our waitress was friendly and kept our coffee cups filled throughout our meal. The one page menu had enough variety of items that we had to have the waitress return once before everyone had made their choice. I ordered a California Omelette off of the daily specials menu. It was made with avocados, mushrooms and Swiss cheese and was excellent. I was the only one at the table to finish my meal. Everyone else ordered some type of a pancake meal. Without exception no one ate more than half of their food. The portions were large enough that any two people at our table could have shared a meal and went away stuffed. There were absolutely no complaints and the consensus is that we will visit again during our next trip to Destin..

Worth the wait! But get there early. Portions are gigantic.Best pancakes I've ever had... still trying to figure out how they get the strawberries and bananas so thinly slice that they are inside the pancake. (Try the Destinite!) The kids were in heaven. My husband had a shrimp omelette and it was incredible as well. Excellent service too! Our server, Mona, had great recommendations for things to do in the area. She knows her stuff!

Got the sampler with eggs, sausage, hashbrowns and pancakes.
Really good and at about $7.50, a great value.
