Pancakes on the Rocks Menu

Want to eat somewhere that caters for ALL the family’s tastebuds?

Try Pancakes on the Rocks  – there’s pancakes of course, but it is NOT JUST pancakes.

Did you know that Pancakes on the Rocks menu also features STEAK, SALAD, RIBS, FISH, NACHOS and PIZZA!  

Until we visited, I had NO idea.

I wonder how many other families have given Pancakes on the Rocks the flick because ONE of their bunch was not a pancake fan.

Good to know this family diner can be back on the list of SUPER DOOPER fun places to eat out with the kids.

Hot tip: I had the Bananarama Pancake stack for dinner  but next time, I’ll be picking the Chicken and Mushroom crepe (given 5+ toadstools by our three extended family members who devoured this dish) and SHARING a pancake stack with the kids for dessert.

A whole pancake dinner/dessert was too much sweetness for me.

It was a sweet-treat overload and that, my friends, is a hard thing to do in my world.

Pancakes on the Rocks calories?

A buttermilk pancakes stack off 100 grams in size has 175 calories, 29 grams of carbohydrate, 2 grams of fat, and 7 grams of protein.

Not including the whipped butter. 

If you are worried about calories, it’s advisable to skip a visit.

Or avoid the pancakes and stick to the mixed lettuce salads – you can order a garden salad main, a chicken caesar salad with chicken breast pieces, or a greek salad. 

This is a high calorie exercise in eating, every way you look at it.

Pancakes on the Rocks Kids Menu

Everything on the Pancake on the Rocks children’s menu comes in under $10 and there’s a decent variety of sweet and savoury dishes.

Failing that, there’s reasonable (and some healthier) alternative options for kids on the main menu. 

But if you are looking for FUN eats, you can’t beat something with a face on it, or an ice cream accompaniment.

There’s colouring in pages, and pencils for the kids too.

This kid friendly move is always a helpful bonus to keep kids occupied while they wait for their food.

The staff are super helpful, friendly, but non-obtrusive, coming when you call and ensuring that meals are delivered quickly to those with impatient and/or demanding little people in your family or group.

What surprised me most of all was the prices at Pancakes on the Rocks.

The prices are REALLY affordable with the majority of salads, savoury crepes, pancakes and pizzas all below $20 each.

Ribs and Steak meals were a bit more pricey around the $30 mark but there’s so many other options, I think I’d be saving steak for another night to keep this family outing well under $100, possibly even under $60 for 4.
