Went here on a Sunday morning. The food was good, but the wait time was excruciating. Once seated you could tell that servers were trying to turn their tables quickly which is understandable, but we left feeling rushed.

We were staying at the river walk but decided to make the drive based on the reviews. It was well worth the drive. Jambalaya omelet, Sunday potato casserole, apple cinnamon pancakes and bananas foster pancakes are all winners.

Saw this place on DDD and since we were travelling through we decided to give it a shot. I did bring my own real maple syrup in since I make it, but they do have the real stuff available for a price. We were 9th on the waiting list when we arrived but it was only about 10-15 minute wait.... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. After that first visit I could hardly wait to return. I was really pleased with my meal and made sure to return on my second trip to San Antonio. Be prepared to wait at this restaurant. They are consistent with their seating policy. All must be present before seated. Blueberry pancakes are... More

Been here several times and it always averages a 3.5. We ate here on a rainy weekend and as always, it's was tasty. My husband had the banana-nut pancakes with a side of bacon and said it was great. I had the bacon and cheddar omelet and it was huge but delicious. The biscuits are okay not spectacular. The coffee... More

After wanting to eat here for more than year, we finally were able to come in at a good time when the wait was less than an hour. I can honestly say the food is absolutely worth waiting. I tried the Eggs Benedict and it was exquisite! My husband had the Eggs Fitzgerald and he loved it. Both of our... More

Had a little wait but you can use Nowait app to avoid waiting. Lauren was very attentive. Breakfast sausage some of the best I have had in a long time. Had pecan pancakes and eggs as well. Their hashbrowns looked real good too. Worth the trip and the wait. Enjoy.

With the great German influence in the area, a pancake HAUS definitely got our attention. The restaurant closes at 2 p.m. and does not take reservations but it has been featured on Diners Dives and Drive-Ins, so gave it a shot. It was amazing. I highly recommend the german apple fluffy pancake (I can't even pronounce the name in german)!... More

I had the banana nut waffle with bacon and hash browns. A touch too much garlic in the potatoes for me but the waffle was incredible. I wish they would take reservations. As long as people line up for their food I guess they see no need to change but eating here has to be planned or else you can... More
