The place has a casual but very cozy, comfortable feel to it. It's as if you are in a small town pancake house. The menu has a large variety of very good food that is served quickly, but the prices are rather high. It's hard to escape with less than a $25 bill for a nice breakfast with beverages for 2. The service is efficient, but not always the most polite. The last time I ate there with my boyfriend, we were served by an odd waitress who only addressed my boyfriend and pretty much ignored me as though I wasn't there.

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.

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.

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?
