Tried this place last Sunday, and was not disappointed. We had a short wait, despite the crowd, and were greeted promptly by our server, with coffee shortly to follow. Both hubby and I had an egg breakfast with bacon and pancakes, and there were no issues swapping the plain pancakes with other types.. hubby got the buckwheat and I got... More

The menu offerings are numerous. However, there are not so many items on the menu that will overwhelm you. Even the most finicky diner should be able to find something to order. Pancake choices are my reason for stopping in. Must try pancakes are those with bacon bits or pecans. Being from the Deep South, I had to try the... More

We started our trip home by going out to breakfast. we both ordered the Baked Pancake, even though it takes longer to cook. This pancake served with butter, powdered sugar and lemon was very, very tasty. The service was terrific and they were attentive to our drinks. This was a best "Regular" breakfast out for us.

You can sense the popularity of this restaurant as you park your car. The front door seems to never stop opening and closing! And the large and comfortable waiting area is further testament to an enthusiastic and hungry crowd. Seating estimates are spot on and our expected 10 minute wait was accurate. Service is quick and friendly but at these... More

I used to frequent their older location on route 7 years ago, and since they moved I've probably been there more than 10 times. Every time I go, I leave telling myself not to come back. Yea it's cheap, but I can make everything they have on their menu at home much better. This is simple breakfast items we're talking... More

I have been to The Original Pancake House numerous times and it never disappoints. The omelets are delicious and very filling. I don't usually like restaurant pancakes, but these are great. They even have gluten free selections, which can be difficult to find. Other members of my family got The Works and one of the Eggs Benedict - everyone was... More

Crepes are featured along with pancakes by this long-time restaurant. The plain pancakes are serviceable though mediocre tasting and way over-priced for what you get (about $10. for a plain pancake dish with eggs and a couple of slices of bacon). What's missing are the crepes, which, when done right, are a dish that's just heavenly. At the Original Pancake... More

This is a hometown place. Very down to earth and the owners are the salt of the earth (every Christmas they offer free breakfast to the poor) You certainly get your monies worth as the portions are large.
