For Sale

Iconic McCall breakfast restaurant listed for sale

If you've been to McCall, you've probably had a meal at the Pancake House. Pancakes, eggs and cinnamon rolls the size of a plate are all on the menu.

Now the iconic Central Idaho eatery is for sale.

For $3.1 million, the business and real estate it sits on are for sale.

The current building was constructed in 2002, replacing a smaller restaurant on site. The large 16,000 square foot building hosts the restaurant and a variety of associated businesses - including The Christmas House, which is also for sale.

The marketing flyer for the property says the Pancake House has a "20-year history" of financial growth.

The flier doesn't list a reason for the sale, and an attempt to contact the owners George and Bonnie Bertram was not successful.

The business is listed for just less than $400,00 to take over -- but the price does not include the use of the Rockies name, which would have the licensed separately.

The diner has been a fixture on the Boise Bench for the last 20 years, and was an offshoot of a drive-in location on Fairview Ave. which has long since closed.

The listing says the business has positive cash flow and a long-term lease. No reason for the sale is listed.

The restaurant's "Johnn B. Goode" food challenge was featured on the second season of Man Vs. Food on Food Network. Participants are challenged to eat a 4.5 burger with 1.5-pound plate of chili chees fries and a 16-ounce milkshake in thirty minutes. If they make it, they get that meal free, plus a free t-shirt and a free guitar (and, probably, some heartburn).

Nearly ten years after a massive fire gutted Whiskey Jacques on Main Street in Ketchum - the rebuilt business is for sale.

Listings for the business indicate a $4.7 million price tag for the bar and restaurant, noting that the current owner is hoping to retire.

The 10,500 square foot business was reconstructed in place after the fire destroyed both Whiskey's and a vacant building next door that once housed a vacant Dirty Little Roddie's offshoot.

The business listing calls Whiskey's a "trophy" and plays up the potential:

Whiskey Jacques has been an iconic fixture in downtown Ketchum, for the past 60 years. Sale is ''turn-key'', including, lot, improvements, liquor license, all F,F&E, Copyright name and logo. Buy the history, invest in the future. Designed with options to keep up with the growth of town and new technology.
