my family and I used to eat at the pancake house every weekend, but now it's a very rare thing for us to go there because of the prices raising skyhigh and how crowded it always is. The manager is also very rude so we try to avoid any kind of interaction with him.

We met a customer here for breakfast at his suggestion. Wow, what an incredible selection of pancake choices all made fresh to order! Great access from I-5 and judging from the crowd a popular place. Food and service were excellent. Don't miss it for breakfast.

As many of the other reviewers have noted, this place is a little pricey. However, the cost is worth it for the delicious pancakes! I had the blueberry pancakes, which are scrumptious! Try their orange juice, as it is fresh-squeezed and wonderful! The servers are friendly and efficient!

Loved this place. Quick service, fantastic pancakes friendly staff. Be aware that though they are open through the lunch hour they only serve breakfast fare.

We visit the Original Pancake House in Kirkland all the time. When we saw there was one near our hotel in Salem on our way through - no question where we would take Dad and his wife for breakfast. Dad loved the pancakes which he said were much tastier than your standard doughy restaurant pancakes. He also loved the corn... More

You will never eat at another Pancake restaurant ever! Nothing comes even close to the absolute menu this restaurant offers. Any kind of pancake available. Notable suggestions are the fresh fruit pancakes as each fruit is available. The Dutch Baby is to die for. You have to wait for this to be cooked but it is well worth the wait.... More

I liked everything....there were ten in our family group but we only waited about 15 minutes.....it was worth it. They kept the coffee flowing constantly and the Food on our table was impressive. My niece's Apple pancake was bigger than her head so, fortunately for the rest of us, she shared! I had the Tahitian crepe and it made me... More

I have been eating here since I was little, and the food is to die for! I always skip the motel breakfast and come here! I can never sleep thinking about going there to eat in the morning! The best egg dishes, the best pancakes (you'll forget IHOP!), and the best cup of coffee in town! A little spendy, but... More

We had a large party for breakfast. The food was wonderful and came out fast and correctly. The staff was extremely polite and helpful. Would eat there again and often. The best pancakes I ever had.

49er flapjacks at noon. Three large unrolled sweet crepes with sweet butter and imitation maple syrup. A large glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. No sides or extras $14. You won't believe this could possibly fill you up. Plus they're delicious. Come hungry. I don't think the wait staff like it when you know what you want before you walk... More
