With locations all around the New Jersey shore, Uncle Bill's Pancake House is a great place to enjoy more than just at breakfast time. We stopped for lunch with our 5-year-old niece in tow and it was a perfect place for a picky eater.
We were thrilled to be sat in a booth near the bar, because in the corner a TV played cartoons (although halfway through our meal, someone changed it to Fox News). She was perfectly distracted so we could decide on what to order. Our waitress also brought over a coloring book and crayons to keep her occupied while our meals were brought out.
We ordered a short stack of pancakes and a plate of the sand dollar pancakes. Our niece loved the small pancakes that were just her size, and, because we could order them in multiples (like, 10), she and I could share (which we loved). They also had a number of different juices and a great kids cup.
We could tell we had picked a winner as we walked in because the parking lot was full (seriously full, people were parking on the street!), people were hanging out outside and in the foyer, and inside it was boisterous with laughter and families enjoying each others company. And boy were we right.
