Bel-Aire Pancake House should be on your itinerary! Don't expect gloss and glitz--this isn't it. Good old-fashioned home-style cooked food, an eclectic, worn-comfy (back-in-the-day wear-and-tear) interior, and lady servers who have been around the restaurant block a few times. The waffles are the gold standard and are to die for! Ohh, the sweet, melt-in-your-mouth kind that have already been recognized... More

My wife and I go to Bel Aire most Sundays. The staff remembers our orders and have our drinks in process as we walk in the door. The menu is huge but typical American food. If that's what you're looking for, they do it right.

Terrible service. Terrible food. Used to be a decent place but after today, I'll never return..cheeseburger smelled like rotten hamburger had been used, wait staff was as bad as food, bad attitudes, never check on their tables, no drinks refilled. They only pay attention to you if you're a senior. Not a place for people with young kids. And lastly,... More

I went for brunch with a friend. The menu is a little too extensive but I finally decided to try the eggs Benedict. I also wanted to try the potato salad - a bit of an odd combination but I'm glad I did. The eggs were pretty good. Not great but good. The Hollandaise really needed more lemon but the... More

Decent food-we had typical breakfast fare. Very nice staff. Old but okay seating. Nice selection of southern comfort type food. Cheap eats compared to pancake house, etc. I hope this is helpful.

Needed a spot to rest and recover from a bad traffic morning. Got the Cowboy breakfast - hamburger smothered in sausage gravy, two eggs your way, hash brown potato, and toast. Served with a really good cup of coffee.

I have only been to Bel-Aire Pancake House once, and I went for brunch but it was a great experience! We had a super sweet and fun waitress. She was attentive but didn't hover. Prices for breakfast (I got an egg and cheese biscuit and a pancake, dad got pigs in a blanket, and brother got a turkey club).... were... More

The coffee is great and the wait staff keeps it coming. The food came out as soon as we ordered. Well prepared and tasty. Grits are creamy. Be sure to order them.
