The Pancake House has been a staple at Wards Corner since Nicholas Renasis’ father opened the doors in 1962. Fifty three years later, Nicholas is planning to close the old location and reopen immediately next door in a completely new restaurant buildout. The new design and location should not scare any loyal patrons away as the restaurant is slated to maintain its family casual atmosphere as well as its breakfast and lunch menu offerings.
The most notable change, aside from moving next door to the location of a former podiatry office, will be the added dinner hours and the change in name from “The Pancake House” to “The Pancake House & Grill” which reflects the dinner menu offerings that will be available such as crab cakes, seafood, and steaks. The breakfast and lunch menu will still be available during dinner hours. Dinner will be served Tuesday through Saturday for now with potential expansion to Sundays and Mondays in the future.
The new location will have 75 seats at approximately 24 tables including a 8 seat bar with wine, beer, and mixed drink offerings.
A mid-December opening is planned.
