Consistently very good food and service

Had my usual ham and eggs with buttermilk pancakes this morning. Food was very good...ham not to salty. I usually pour a bit of maple syrup over the ham just to give it a touch of sweetness. Waiter was attentive and the price reasonable. Here, if you have something that is not right such as... read more

My husband has used this place for years for a breakfast and lunch spot that's close to his work. Service is always very good and the food is great too.

I went there with my husband and daughter and when we got to the restaurant, I went to the restaurant to wash my hands. When I came back to find my family, they were seated at a table with silverware and water just for them. None for me. Coffee was served to them in small cups., Ketchup was brought to... More

If you want a truly great breakfast this is the place for you. There are all types of pancakes including Dutch babies, flapjacks, and crepes. You can have an egg and meat breakfast as well. Beware if you order an omelette. They are huge and fluffy and fill an entire dinner plate. We ordered 49ers which are like large crepe... More

We wanted to try some place other than our normal breakfast spots and after reading some of the reviews thought we would give this a try. We were very disappointed in our breakfast. I had the eggs benedict which was ok but the potatoes were the beyond bad. They were not fully cooked and came out burnt . I also... More

Outstanding food and family environment. It's not cheap, expect - more than 60 for a family of 5. One last thing, expect to wait more than 30 minutes on weekends. No regrets!

Friendly service and great breakfast, but you might have to wait. Typical morning waits on Saturday and Sunday, so stick to the week if you can. This place is famous for Apple Pancakes, it is not what you think it is. It is a must per table. One bite and you too will be hooked. The Dutch baby is the... More

Our 91 year old aunt had us take her here and the food was very good. The service was excellent. Knowing our aunt was elderly they asked if we would like a booth or table and even though they were very busy they did not rush us.

We stopped by the Original Pancake House at 4656 Commercial St. SE in Salem on our way back from a California road trip. Got there about 8:30 on a Saturday and it was busy, but got much busier. Loved the hostess who always gave options and guidance to people coming in about different locations and tables. The staff was efficient... More

The best breakfast that money can buy! The Eggs Benedict is so good! I have never had poor service in all of the years I have been dining here. Wished it was closer to my home, as I am certain I would be a regular!
