Ate breakfast here twice in recent weeks and found their pancakes to be extremely good. They appear to have high quality standards - refusing to serve my brother a waffle that looked unappetizing and instead cooking a new one (he never saw the failed example). The coffee was of good quality as was the orange juice. Prices seem a bit... More

I had the Original Pancake House apple pancake last Saturday. It was most excellent. The restaurant is always clean and friendly. This visit is was very busy. Kelly was my server.

Good breakfast, my favorite is the cinnamon raisen waffel!! To die for!!! It is expensive and the amount they charge for a drink and the quantity you get is ridiculous!! But you can't go wrong with the food.

Great breakfast & coffee. The guy next to us had a Dutch Baby--like a giant popover with fruit in it! Looked delicious

OPH is where business happens in Williamsville. Every morning is a who's who of the local business, venture capital, real estate and finance communities. The food is terrific and the coffee is always great. If you want a good meal and an opportunity to connect with business leaders in WNY, OPH in Williamsville is the place to go.

It should not cost four people over $50 to have a breakfast of eggs, toast, sausage, and pancakes. $3.25 for a shot glass full of orange juice?? Get real. Service was fine. I will never go to another original pancake house again. Way overpriced for the food.

this was virtually a must-stop until a sudden drop-off in server quality, messed-up orders, cold food... that nevvver used to happen here... on the other hand, three of us did drop in in a hurry one noon and were turned out well-stuffed... the dutch baby is well beyond the cheap gourmets' budget but he still indulges... but in williamsville mid-day,...

Who doesn't love 300 kinds of pancakes? And a monstrosity called a "Dutch Baby?" Ok, maybe 30 kinds of pancakes, but they're all good. Other breakfast foods available as well, of course, and all done well. My bf had a side of corned beef hash and loved it. The chocolate chip, banana, peanut butter pancake concoction I made up was...

Although we were eating on a Sunday morning the wait was only a few minutes. The service was good and the food well prepared as ordered.They have nice touches like real maple syrup and butter (not in those little plastic thingies) and generous portions. It's not a place for quiet conversations when it's crowded, but a reliable place for an... More
