Pancakes On The Rocks opened on Hickson Road, at The Rocks in Sydney on 17th August, 1975.
The idea behind Pancakes On The Rocks goes back to the late 1950’s when some intrepid Australians went on a road trip across America. They noticed the popularity of pancakes on the menus in American restaurants and wanted to bring that love of pancakes to Australia. They opened their first restaurant in Adelaide in 1965 and then opened around Victoria. The original founders separated with one moving to Sydney and opening Pancakes On The Rocks. As a company we continued to pursue our vision of creating casual dining, family restaurants that featured pancakes and had something for everyone on the menu.
In 1994, Pancakes On The Rocks embarked on a rebirth by adding to the menu, pizzas, a new range of salads, crepes, pancakes and our now famous beef and pork ribs. The new look menu proved very popular for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. To meet the increasing demand for Pancakes On The Rocks we now have restaurants at The Rocks, Northmead, Darling Harbour, Beverly Hills, Darling Square and on the Gold Coast in Queensland.
Our aim of serving quality food, with friendly service in a welcoming atmosphere continues in all our restaurants. With the continued success of Pancakes On The Rocks in each location we plan to open more restaurants in Australia and around the world.
