Plenty to choose from on the menu. I opted for the steak and eggs! Steak was pretty good although it was a little tough. The eggs were on point. Service was pretty good but our waiter got a little distracted because of some large parties that came in. However, he was very understanding that we were just sitting and visiting.... More

We were on our way to Stockyards (we're from the UK) and saw the reviews on Trip Advisor. We stopped and the place was so busy but Jacque, our server, was just great. We had biscuits and gravy and the pancakes. Fantastic place, great food and friendly staff. Wish we had one of these in the UK!

Ol' South Pancake House is an old school diner and fantastic. Food is 'Home Cooking' at its best. I love a lot of things on their menu and they always have daily specials - but my very, very favorite is their German Pancakes or Dutch Babies - which is a smaller version of their German Pancake. If you go and... More

I love this place because this is the first place where I ever had a Dutch Baby! Yeah so okay, they call it a Pancake House, but seriously, pancakes are just pancakes and they're all pretty much the same once you coat 'em in butter and syrup. It's the Dutch baby that has the real Star Power here. This wonderful... More

We had an excellent experience at the Ol' South Pancake House. If you are looking for an overpriced "fine dining" establishment, this isn't it. But if you like good food at a fair price in a classic coffee shop environment, with some Texas charm to boot, this place rocks. The specialty of the house is the German Pancake, which is... More

I stopped here for breakfast because the outside made it seem like this place was around for decades and had the best breakfast in town. Well it doesn't. I ordered the pancakes with some eggs and bacon. I will say the bacon was cooked perfectly. It was thick cut and the portion size was great. The pancakes on the other... More

The place was clean which gets 2 stars but the food and the service were abysmal. The pancakes were the worst I have ever had. Stale, old, rubbery, coarse ... awful. There are some places I'll give a second try but not this one. Abysmal.

Great breakfast near TCU in Ft Worth. Stopped before heading into Dallas for the day and we all were set for a long day of walking and tours.
