Second review. Liked this visit much better. The pancakes have a nice yeasty flavor from the sourdough starter. The Dutch Baby Fruit Bowl was a treat.

They have a great variety of breakfast and lunch selections. I believe that breakfast is served all day. A side order of the "loaded" potatoes is a meal by itself. Omelets, pancakes, waffles are all great. The only problem with the Original Pancake House is that now that I've had their strawberry crepes, I never order anything different. I can't... More

The Good: very tasty, lots of choices, unusual dishes, large portions, great service, good value, TRY THE BACON The Bad: crowded at breakfast, just ok decor, not much health food wise. We have eaten here 5 times. This is a super little chain with a couple of locations in Cincy. The service here is really excellent. There are lots of... More

We had to wait a bit to get a table but all in all it was worth it. The service was very good. And the food was even better. Our favorites were the pecan waffles and the energizer pancakes with fresh strawberries. Don't forget the whipped cream topping; it's perfect.

Average because between First Watch and Bob Evans the bar for breakfast chains is reasonably high. A fine place to get some breakfast.

We had been out of town for 6 weeks where there was no Original Pancake House. Arrived home last night and had to have our fix this morning! Our "go to" is the chicken crepes with the potato pancakes. It's like coming home! The servers are so nice and friendly.

While it's called the Pancake House, I love their Eggs Michael. House version of eggs Benedict but with a cream sherry mushroom sauce. So good on a chilly day!

I have gone to this place a few times. I really love the crepes and the apple pancake. Also, the bacon is quite good.

My husband and I visited this restaurant recently but were not really sure what to expect. They do offer signature dishes as well as many other menu choices. We did try their Apple Pancake (signature dish) which was absolutely delicious. Our server was training someone during our visit ( it was the trainee's second day) and the service was excellent....

There is something for everyone here. Try the Greek omelet or the Dutch baby. They are really busy on weekends so prepare to wait. They do tend to seat quickly though.
