I have eaten at several of the Original's mostly in Illinois. They are all a good place to eat a wonderful breakfast. My Grandfather took me to the one in Wilmette, Ill and I have been hooked on them since. Not living in the are, and getting to eat there is always a special treat.

I had bacon and eggs, which their are other local places better and less expensize for that! The potatoes were gross! So... More

My family makes the Original Pancake House a regular stop whenever my wife and I visit the Milwaukee area. They are in an old house remodeled to a restaurant making for a cozy atmosphere. The food couldn't be better and their assortment of breakfast dishes, from eggs and huge omelets to a wide assortment of pancakes and crepes and waffles... More

Arrived at about 9am on a Sunday and there were people waiting outside for a seat. We were told the wait would be 25 minutes for a party of 5. They sat us down in 15 minutes so that wasn't a bad wait at all consider the large number of people waiting. I ordered the corned beef hash which was... More

This is a very unique breakfast restaurant. Some specialties you won't easily find anywhere else. I love the French Crepes and the Dutch Baby.

I had an omelet which I couldn't finish, it was so large. It was very well made as were the potatoes. Also a great value.

Excellent pancakes and accompanying eggs. Good service staff. However, don't plan on a quiet conversation.

I've been to the Original Pancake House a bunch of times and never have been disappointed. The portions are HUGE, good enough for two meals really. The pancakes are fantastic and the omelettes are good too. If you love breakfast, this is a must stop for you.

If gargantuan sized servings are your thing then The Original Pancake House is for you. The problem is with restaurants, bigger doesn't always mean better. After hearing the raves of friends and restaurant ratings my wife and I decided to try The Original Pancake House in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Being neophytes to the place we ordered two of their “normal” sized... More

The Food: This was the best breakfast I have ever had! The vegetarian egg white omelet was packed with tons of vegetables! I do not eat cheese so the waitress substituted it with spinach, yum! The pancakes were cooked perfect. I chose the very healthy whole wheat substitute. I was very happy. The Environment: Very clean, cozy, warm and happy.... More
