We were expecting so much from thus restaurant. I mean who wouldn't when a place boasts being the "The Original Pancake House?" Food was very ordinary, and the presentation was atrocious. Maybe we should have ordered one of the more fancy dishes, like the apple pancake? Way too expensive for the quality. I got a mug, and that's the only... More

Food and service is always excellent. Prices are a little high, but worth it. Large menu and always busy on the weekends. Weekdays are better. Close to where we stay.

Very traditional Pancake House. Good food and great service. My husbands Hash was very good. My eggs benedict could have been better. The 'Canadian bacon' was a slab of ham.

I usually never eat at chain restaurants but this one was outstanding. Clean, nice decoration and terrific service. The baked apple pancake was outstanding. The scrambled eggs were fluffy and not the least bit greasy.

This is a basic pancake house. The menu is good but standard offerings. Nothing catching about the location or facilities. Don't get me wrong the food was good, we had a great breakfast here. What really stood out was the service. Great waitresses and outstanding service. We really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the attention to good service. Good location... More

Great pancakes. And quite a large selection. I had the Eggs Michael and my wife had the pumpkin pancakes. Both were excellent. Went early on a Saturday morning and there was no crowd.

Any kind of pancakes and waffles with eggs and bacon! Blueberry pancakes are my favorite anywhere.. theirs are the best (except for mine. Kids are happy campers here. Service is good, at times slow, but it's worth the wait.

I'd had high hopes for this restaurant and kind of like a little kitsch but this was too much and too little at the same time. Too much money for what you get and too little service and flavor. I just can't imagine why this place gets such good reviews! The menu is quite limited and we quickly realized this... More
