American Pancake House's friendly staff serves up traditional breakfasts and lunches in a family-friendly diner environment. A four-egg vegetarian omelet ($6.95) tucks sleepy broccoli, mushrooms, and tomato into a thick, fluffy bed of whisked egg next to starchy hash-brown pillows. Meanwhile, an apple pancake traps freshly baked apples beneath a cinnamon-sugar glaze ($9.35) while flapjack whisperers produce chocolate pancakes by merging batter with melted semi-sweet morsels prior to grilling ($6.65). For lunch, excavate the bacon, lettuce, and tomato strata of a triple-decker BLT club ($7.05), or let a healthy mix of fruits and cottage cheese chaperone a savory beef patty or chicken breast to your stomach from a low-calorie plate ($8.05).
American Pancake House boasts booths as well as tables, giving diners the freedom to build different types of under-the-table forts. The dining rooms at the three locations can accommodate 80–150 people, leaving enough elbow room for large parties or teams of competitive pancake flippers looking to take their mind off work.

Even pancake fanatics could get overwhelmed at American Pancake House. Twenty varieties of the expertly flipped discs fill the menu, their numbers bolstered by a lengthy list of crepes, blintzes, waffles, and french toast. Fresh pecans are swirled into the diner's special pancake batter, emerging from the oven slathered in a cinnamon-sugar glaze, whereas chocolate pancakes blur the lines between breakfast, dessert, and feeding frenzy. Not to be outdone, the diner's menu of savory breakfast dishes and lunch plates dazzle in syrup-free glory, from the mediterranean frittata that pairs smoked sausage with onions and feta to the a classic diner reuben stacked on perfectly toasted rye.
