In addition to the food, the staff is always friendly and helpful. Be aware that the restaurant closes in the early afternoon.

You can call ahead 30 minutes prior to arriving to make a reservation, and on weekends and around the holidays this is all but necessary to be seated within an hour. This place is hoppin'! Food is good and the pancakes are enormous. Staff is very friendly and attentive and good about bringing drink refills and condiments. The hash browns... More

The service is attentive, with coffee refills available quickly. The delicious veggie omelet was as large as my dinner plate. I took home over 75% of it to be enjoyed several more times. I also had the 3 pancakes, that came with the omelet, packed for take-out when I ordered.

My husband and I recently went to The Original Pancake House for breakfast on a rainy Monday morning. Neither of us had been there before. We were greeted pleasantly and seated quickly, and our drink order was taken immediately. We ordered orange juice and coffee. My husband ordered an omelet, which was huge! He has a hearty appetite, but he... More

I really enjoy going to the Original Pancake House! Their Brookfield location is my favorite. No wait for seating during the week. I wouldn't think of venturing there on the weekends - too crowded & long waits. It was the first time I tried the Dutch Baby here. A German/soufflé pancake. Big, light, fluffy, melts in your mouth good. I... More

I'm a real home-made corned beef hash lover. I've been here 7-8 times and ordered the same thing each time. Generous portions, tasty hash and thick toast. The coffee is never hot enough but have them pour half a cup and ask them to refresh it often. Pancakes are their name-sake but I'm not a fan of anyone's pancakes so... More

The Pancake House has been around a few years. There are two locations, one in Brookfield on Bluemound Road and the other in Milwaukee on Oakland Avenue. Pancakes, crepes, waffles, eggs, bacon (yummy), potatoes are simply the best. Hot, fresh every time I have been there. My favorite however is the German Pancake served with Powdered Sugar, lemon & butter.... More

We enjoy frequenting the Pancake House when we are in town. Always great food. Don't miss the lingonberries! Our server this time was super attentive and was constantly refilling our coffee. Good way to start your day - but get there early to avoid waiting!

Get there before 8 on weekends or you will be standing in an hour long line. The lines are longest around 10....so get there early. Set in a single story white washed house style setting off of Blue Mound Rd., not far from a number of other restaurants, this place is easy to overlook. Parking is a t a premium... More
