A really good place for breakfast

A great selection of specialty on letters and pancakes. Great service and reasonably priced for the whole family. Have gone back many times.

The Original Pancake House is always crowded, but for a very good reason -- noone else can make Pancakes and Crepes like they do. On this visit, I had silver dollar pancakes (buttermilk). They give you 10 small pancakes and they are delicious. I could only eat five (doggie bag). Gary got a Strawberry Crepes -- it was wonderful. We... More

This is a very popular restaurant for morning and mid-day meals because the food is very good - high quality and prepared freshly. However, it is not for people who are in a big rush or pressed for time. During high traffic times, especially weekends, there is usually a considerable wait. The tables don't turn over as quickly as customers... More

When visiting family in this are, we always come here for a great breakfast. Our favorite menu items are the apple pancake, cherry kijafa crepes and thick sliced bacon.

Made it down to Cincinnati for the weekend again and had to go for breakfast to The Original Pancake House. Last time I was there I was "blown away" by the service and tastiness of the meals. This time was not disappointing in the least. This long standing tradition in the area is worth your time and the drive to... More

I have frequented the Original Pancake House in Charlotte, NC many times. I was very excited to find one in Ohio. The wait time was not bad at all. Restaurant was clean and staff was great. I will be going back again soon. The dutch baby and strawberry pancakes are AMAZING!!

My grandson, 9 years old, calls this "The world's best restaurant". That is because he can get fresh fruit and bacon there. Most restaurants don't have fruit, except for a fruit cup, on the menu. We have never had bad service or food that wasn't served at the right temperature. Always fast, and the coffee is great.

I stopped this morning after driving by and seeing it yesterday. I stopped at 11:30 AM and the traffic was brisk while I was there, but not over crowded. the server was very attentive and I had a cup of coffee within a couple of minutes. I ordered the ham and cheese omelet with mushrooms and it came with a... More

The food was very good and we were easily seated with a party of five on a Saturday morning at 8:30am. It was apparent that the crowd was arriving as we were leaving so my best advice is to get there early! The place isn't very big and it's popularity is pretty obvious. Three Pigs in a Blanket, omlets, and... More

Had the chance to try out this fine, long standing restaurant. I can say I was not disappointed in the least bit. The service was wonderful and I was treated with a smile. Since this was my 1st time here, I didn't know what to expect. But the food and hospitality made up for any doubts I may have had.... More
