This chain is one of my favorites and we have driven out of our way on trips just to stop in for breakfast any time of day. My favorite is the Dutch Baby filled with bananas and strawberries. The products used are high quality and the flavors are a delight.

I grew up eating at the sister location in GPW. This one is just as good if you like pancakes, breakfast food and variety. Only complaint is that it is always JAMMED and usually you have to wait.

Visiting family for the holidays and usually visit the Southfield location for breakfast or lunch. Dinner at the Pancake House was a great new experience. Enjoyed the Eggs Michael: poached eggs over sausage patties on an english muffin, covered in mushroom sherry sauce. Also had the potato pancakes. Yum. Be aware that everrything is made with real butter. My sister,... More

This place has my favorite breakfast item, The Baked Apple Pancake. Good Service, quality food, warm environment, and clean. We make a point of visiting when we are in the Detroit Metro area. This is a limited chain restaurant but with a local feel. Highly Recommended.

Everyone is pleasant, the food is fresh and served hot. They just need to have real maple syrup to make it the ultimate Pancake House

The Original Pancake House is the best breakfast on earth. The Apple Pancake is the best breakfast dish ever, the silver dollar pancakes are a taste sensation despite being just a mundane pancake. They have the best sausages I have ever tasted and the Cherry Kijafa is amazing as well. The other great part is their consistency across restaurants. I... More

I live out of town, this place was highly recommend by a friend, so I went there for breakfast. I was very disappointed. We waited an hour for our food. People that were seated after us were getting their food before us. We had 5 people in our party, 2 people received their food first. They didn't want to be... More

This is just around the corner although we don't go but for a special treat a couple times a year. The reason is because I would weigh 500 lbs easily if I went more often! This is NOT the place to go for just bacon and eggs - go to the local Coney Island and save your money. This is... More
