Jam packed on a late Sunday morning, the line moved quickly and efficiently for seating. We were a party of 7, and the restaurant staff took extra effort to set a large comfortable table for us. Even though the offerings are similar to well known breakfast and pancake chain restaurants, the omelets were fluffy and generously filled, and the pancakes... More

This is a great breakfast place, even after lunch. The place was packed but the experience was well worth the wait. The food was excellent! I had strawberry pancakes eggs and the greatest bacon, as I said excellent. The service was great also, it was an all around great experience well worth repeating.

They must put drugs in the pancakes here because they are addicting! Everywhere else tastes bland to me now and wherever I travel I look for the Original Pancake House. This time I got two eggs, hashbrowns, ham, three pancakes and coffee for $11.30 with tax. Everything from the greeting to the service to the food was great. Make sure... More

The coffee flows hot, fresh and continuously. The cream yes, real cream for the coffee is a stunner. My French toast arrived hot, ever so slightly crispy at the corners & lightly dusted with powder sugar. The waitress was unfailingly polite, patient with my trifling companion and very efficient. I think I have found another winner here!

Eggs were runny, pancakes had a terrible after taste. Bacon taste like it just came out the piggy. I could of settled for Denny's.

Original Pancake House products beat any other pancake shop hands-down. For this visit I had the "Big German," which was a bit too big (I should have gone for the smaller "Big Dutch"). I took it because it was different and no regrets. The fresh lemon was a nice, creative twist. The staff is very friendly and we got a... More

I had a western omellet on a recent trip. The omellet was decent but it seems like their using less eggs. The size of the omellet was the same but it lacked egg flavor. The omellet was still tasty but it's not the same as I'd remembered.

This place was great best pancakes ever. Everybody needs to go try this place out when you're in Michigan or in the area. Truly the best. It's also very clean and has a wonderful staff.

No doubt the best pancakes I ever ate in a restaurant. Prompt service even when super busy. There was a line and a short wait time but well worth the wait. Excellent breakfast! Reasonable price.

We were a little nervous about the location, but went in anyway. My daughters thought that these pancakes were the best that they had ever tasted. Light, fluffy and held the syrup well. The omelette that I had was huge and tasted great. The bacon was very thick and tasted awesome. Good price for the meal provided.
