the food was great I reccomend the eggs benedict or any of the pancakes. The food is fresh and yummy but you will have to wait to get a seat but once your inside the service is fast and friendly.

Being from Southern California, we love to visit friends in Millbrae, especially when they take us to the Millbrae Pancake House! The food is wonderful and the service is terriffic. The kids are astonished how quickly they get their food. Can't wait to get back there this summer!

the food is good and the place is always packed for breakfast. i guess the non-stop crowds can speak for the food. but, because there are always big crowds you have to wait quite a while.

my girlfriends and i love coming here on sunday mornings. it's a perfect way to start the day. everything is good. the portions are large enough to share. the wait can sometimes be long, but once you're seated, you're food will be there in no time.

everything on the menu is good & best of all you get served fast! you'll be in & out in no time w/a full stomach! The hot chocolate comes w/a mound of whip cream, it's the best! They also serve large parties!

Went there the other day with people from work for lunch. Plenty of seating and good breakfast with reasonable prices. Not sure its as great as everything at Stacks but planning to go there again, esp. when there's a line down the street for Stacks! Food came fast, portions were large and OJ was decent. Waitstaff was friendly and prompt. Probably a good place for kids as well.

I love the Millbrae pancake house. It gets unfortunately very crowded on the weekends around brunchtime (read: long waits) but it's totally worth it. Most of the breakfast plates come with two pancakes as a "side" -- but the pancakes are almost a foot across, they're "ginormous" and so fluffy and yummy...

Parking is okay -- until it gets crowded; if there's a wait outside, expect to be hard pressed for parking. But it's close to a residential section where street parking is usually easy to find, you just need to walk a block or two.

PROS: Amazing pancakes and breakfast dishes
CONS: Sometimes a little greasy, parking sometimes tough

The family style pancake house is establishes in early days (if remembered correctly - 1900, anyway with history) so the style is tradition both in food and decor.
Great pancakes-all day breakfast . The portion is big but a little bit pricy with not so good service.
A big menu selection from pancakes to steak !

We have been going to the Millbrae Pancake House for many years and have always been happy with our experience. It can get crowded on the weekend, but it is a very large venue so the wait isn't too long. I always get the blueberry pancakes which are very good, and a huge portion. We have also had lunch there and the sandwiches are good, typical diner fare. The service is outstanding.

PROS: large venue, good selection of breakfast and lunch
CONS: popular, so it can get crowded

If you're one of those breakfast people (as I am) and you live around the Bay Area, don't miss this place. The pancakes here are the stuff of one's dreams - a serious bit of buttermilk heaven. Served hot and quickly with plenty of real butter and syrup to go around.

The coffee is great, the service is attentive - and the food comes out amazingly fast. The prices are in line with other breakfast places (pancakes will run you about $6, and omelette about $9) - but the caliber of food here just makes it a no-brainer.

Remember, it's a pancake house - so don't expect quiet, cozy dining. It's kid-friendly, grandma-friendly, and can get a bit noisy during peak times. But that's because it's crowded. And crowded is good in the restaurant business - so they must be doing something right.

This place is great. The food is good and you cant beat the price. A large omelette with hash browns and 2 pancakes for $9. The service was good, the waitress checked up on us several times. We didnt wait long for a table and the food came out fast. Yes, it is a bit noisy but its a pancake house, what do you expect..a candlelight dinner for two kind of place?

This place is total rip off, nothing special about it.
People that got there after us were eating first, the waiter got our order wrong and later He told us that He was too busy to offer more coffee. People giving good reviews for this place must be the owner and his friends. I do not recommended.
I never felt so disappointed about getting a meal so simple like eggs and sausages. the place is too dam loud. IHOP has better service and variety.

The Millbrae Pancake House is much better than IHOP. Every breakfast I have had here is amazingly awesome. The ambiance and service aren't anything to get excited about and the place can get very busy on the weekends but it is definitely worth it.

Millbrae Pancake House is an old fashioned pancake house that serves everything from pancakes to chicken fried steak all day. Yes, it's a large room with booths and tables and can get pretty noisy. But the food always comes in less than 5 minutes. The hot chocolate is made the old fashioned way with whipped cream on top, not from a packet, like IHOP. The omelettes come with pancakes, toast, or Swedish pancakes (my favorite). The food is good and inexpensive.

It's one big room with high ceilings. If the room was full it would be extremely NOISY. There at noon on Saturday, 1/2 full and it was very noisy. I had the California omelette. Avacado on top was very brown. Waitress did take it back but why would the cook even serve nasty brown avacado? Pancakes didn't seem very special. Denny's anyone?

Went there with my companion two Sundays for breakfast, got there early before the lines started. Wait staff rushed, impatient, sometimes sullen. Not very TG friendly, just tolerant.

I've been here several times, and I always have a great experience. The food is terrific, servers are friendly and fast, and the atmosphere makes you feel at home. Everything tastes great, whether it's simply sourdough toast or Swedish pancakes. I recommend the blueberry pancakes and the chili omelette.
