Great place

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... read more

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

This review is for the service and logistics at Original Pancake House in Cincy, NOT the food or the dining experience. Unfortunately, we never got a chance to actually try the food or spend any time there. We visited family recently, and wanted to get some Sunday brunch. Seeing the good reviews, and craving some yummy breakfast, seemed like a... More

This most recent visit, I had the pumpkin pancakes and they were delicious! For the uninitiated, when you arrive, if there is a line...get in it. A... More

Wonderful atmosphere and great service. It is a busy place but for good reason. If you do go make sure you get a order of bacon. So thick, it was delicious. Crepes was also very good.

Took our crew to Original Pancake House for breakfast before a recent Kings Island Trip. This was our first visit. The restaurant is bright and clean and nicely decorated. We were greeted on the spot and tables were moved together to accommodate our group. The breakfast menu is extensive with lots of specialties, and portions are good sized. Choose from... More

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
