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

My son-in-law and daughter took my wife and I to visit the Pancake House. It was supposed to be a special treat. It was. I love a good breakfast. This place was created for people like me. Breakfast all day long. I ordered my favorite breakfast food -- Eggs Benedict. Excellent. My wife ordered a vegetarian omelet. She gave it... More

One of the best breakfast restaurants in Milwaukee. I have consistently had good food whenever I eat here and the service is usually very good. They are always busy on the weekends so make sure you call ahead to avoid a long wait.

We had 10 family members for a Sunday Morning brunch. Although they don't take reservations, you can call 20 minutes in advance and put your name in. That works well. We were seated in about 10 minutes and it was worth the wait. The servings are huge and the food is beyond delicious. The Apple Pancake was to die for... More

This is the kind of place you wish was in every town. Delightful from start to finish. Warm and friendly staff very genuine about the service to their customers. They were super busy but seated us right away and never gave us that rushed feeling. Server was fantastic. I had cherry French toast that was out if this world. My... More

We had a wonderful breakfast here and didn't even eat any pancakes. EVERYTHING was good, even the fresh fruit I requested instead of the pancakes. You can't go wrong here. I had ham and eggs and my husband had an omelet - all yummy! The building is charming too. We'll definitely eat here again the next time we're in the... More

All kinds of great breakfast food. This is a popular chain, and it gets crowded in the AM on the weekends!

Have always heard good things about this restaurant and finally had the chance to grab breakfast there. Wow, what an omelet! I know they're known for pancakes, but today we both ordered the omelets and they were excellent. Very tasty and enormous. Seemed more like a soufflé! Would love to go back and get pancakes there some day as well.
