The Pocahontas Pancake House and Waffle Shop has been a fixture in Virginia Beach, Virginia for as long as anyone here can remember. Pocahontas Pancake and Waffle Shop was originally opened in 1974 by the Crisostomides family. In 1986 The Zervoudakis family, Mary, Angelo and George bought the restaurant and kept the Pocahontas name. Since that time there have been many changes made to the restaurant. We brought in local artist Jim Johnson to paint murals on the wall and windows and had an authentic Indian Tee Pee built inside. Our crew works hard to keep our restaurant in good condition, serve the best food possible and provide a family friendly atmosphere.
In late August of 2002, the Food Network featured Pocahontas Pancakes and Waffle Shop on the "Best Of" series choosing us as the "Best Pancake House in Virginia Beach".
We appreciate you choosing Pocahontas Pancake and Waffle Shop and hope you enjoy your visit.
Simply AWESOME! The pancakes are the best you will ever have! Voted Best Pancake House in Virginia Beach!

Excellent food, people, service and nice gluten free options. Fast, friendly, tasty... Really hot all the high spots for me.
Very happy with our visit and will return again when in the neighborhood. Be aware it's popular enough that there's a wait if you hit during prime hours.
Was recommended by family that we check this place out on our first visit to Virginia Beach. We went with a large party of 12. Told the hostess that we were willing to separate our group and they gave us a wait time of 35-40 minutes. We were seated right at that time. The place is crowded and a little cramped and noisy. It was worth the wait though! 4 of the 5 people at our table got various samplers. Everything was delicious. The youngest in our group opted for the Oreo pancakes. She had plenty to spare, which allowed everyone to try them! They did not disappoint! Unfortunately, I did not get our waiters name (he had a unique name) but he was fabulous. He had high energy and was very personable. He really seemed to love his job and wanted us to have a good experience. I realize that this seems to be a breakfast destination location. It's absolutely worth checking out, even if you have to wait. The prices are comparable to similar chain breakfast locations, but the food is better!
Best place by far for breakfast anywhere in the area! Dining area was clean and staff was very pleasant, service was fairly quick. Only had to wait about 15 minutes during peak time on a Sunday morning to be seated. No parking lot but plenty of street parking nearby. Food was amazing!
How did I miss this place the first 2 weeks while we were here?! I thought the local "buffet" places left a sour taste in my mouth until we found this place.
Excellent food, fair prices, portion sizes were enough. I have found our new and PERMANENT breakfast restaurant.
Staff was very friendly. Needless to say busy but they are fast enough to get you in in no time. We had everything from the sampler platters to chocolate chip pancakes. I should have gotten the name of our waitress. She was so sweet and wasn't fake like the way we felt at most of the places we tried. VERY attentive to our coffee and other drink refills. Made sure we had everything we needed. Skip everyone else and just go here. Trust me!
