Very popular breakfast restaurant

It took about 25 minutes to get seated, but I'd rather wait a few minutes to get good food than eat bad food. If a restaurant is busy it is a good sign. The Eggs Benedict were very good and the omelets were good size and delicious. Definitely recommended.

Their more than just pancakes! Friendly service huge portions & average price. If omelettes are your thing you gotta give this one a try. It's huge and uniquely prepared by baking (takes about 12 minutes) Seriously it's the size of a pie and could easily feed 2-3 people w/sides. On a side note...GO DUCKS

I enjoyed having the experience of sourdough pancakes, as it can be hard to find these in a restaurant. The atmosphere was clean to the point of sterile, and the wait staff was friendly, prompt, and professional. You may not find much soul in this restaurant, but you can get a tasty breakfast.

I sometimes feel funny going to restaurants alone during business trips, but not here. The staff was very warm and welcoming. I sat near several "locals" who were all clearly well known by name and food orders. I think it's always a good sign when locals frequent a place. My breakfast was very enjoyable and tasty.

It's also fun to have breakfast here . . . . the staff is great and the food is also. I had a half order of sourdough flap jacks with bacon and orange juice . . . . The pancake were served with lots of butter on the side and hot shrup, the bacon was thick and tasty (the waitress... More

The choices are legion; the french toast was pretty good; the staff was friendly and kept the coffee cup full. This is a place that recognizes its customers by name, know their breakfast of choice and friendly chats at the table is the rule of the house.

This was my first time eating at The Original Pancake House, and it was delicious! I ordered the Georgian pecan pancakes and my husband got the chocolate chip pancakes with a side of bacon. The servings are huge, the food is delicious, the bacon was thick and crispy, and the hot chocolate was rich and creamy (obviously not from a... More

This review is for the "Original Pancake House" in Eugene, OR. We never got to taste the food so this comment only pertains to the service - easily the worst I have ever experienced. We got to the hostess area and waited for about 5 minutes before the hostess came out and told me I had to add myself to... More

The Original Pancake House is the place to start your Oregon Ducks day. We never fail to eat there when we're in town visiting our Duck or going to a game. Fun Ducks decor everywhere and awesome food. Best cup of coffee I've ever had. They even ask you if you want your bacon regular or crispy. There's nothing else... More
