We arrived on a Friday at 9:30am and had to wait 15 min in 26 degree weather. Worth the wait. It was so good. The pancakes are larger than some pizzas! The other food is amazing as well! Will return. Neat atmosphere and fun staff.

Really small inside. We arrived at 6:45 am when there were still plenty of tables open. Our cook/waiter was super nice and entertaining to watch as he cooked in the tiny kitchen. Had fun reading the business cards, notes and stickers on the wall. Food was great.

This little hole in the wall is easy to miss, but it's an old-fashioned hearty breakfast place that delivers just what you want for a great start to the day. We had biscuits and gravy and it was fresh, with their handmade signature sausage, which was delicious. My partner had eggs and they were delicious, too.

This place is small but popular. Huge food portions and usually a wait for table because it doesn't have large occupancy. At home feeling with staff and delicious food. The pancakes are as big as a plate!!

We ate here sometime ago, but NOTHING has changed.....for the better. We got lucky and got here early and missed the crowds. You probably will not get any decorating ideas here, but great fun to look around. We ordered "The Polar Bear" Lucky for us we knew to split the order. The food is fantastic and servers Christian and Janelle... More

No complaints with the taste of the food at Grizzly Manor. My only complaint is there is isn't a childrens menu, my 2 children shared a breakfast yet there was still a lot of waste (my pet hate.) Whilst i appreciate they are famous for there large pancakes try throwing a few smaller ones in as well.

We are never disappointed in our breakfast here. The servings are so large we share and still have leftovers. Blueberry pancake, bigger than your plate. The service is good and the wait staff are comical. We didn't have to wait today. Also learned that if we went yesterday, on Tuesday, we could have received a 20% discount because we are... More

I love this place. I always order the blueberry pancakes. They are large and can hang over the plate. It can get busy but we have never had a problem getting service. You can't go wrong starting your day at grizzly's.
