Very good food. Good coffee. Good service. You won't leave hungry. On weekends be sure to use the call ahead option. They are very busy. That should tell you all you need to know.

Have never found a better breakfast restaurant, anywhere! Really good traditional pancake, eggs, bacon and toast, and everything else!! Very scrumptious meals. Very busy at peak times but has a call-ahead plan. Never had a bad or even marginal or even average meal.

Spendy, but delicious!! My husband and I were excited when we found out it was next to our hotel. Side note, even if you normally like sourdough, you probably don't want to get their sourdough pancakes..... Yikes! I guess I've never tasted true sour dough before..... VERY sour and bitter. But their food is delicious and portions are HUGE.

I have eaten here over the years. It seems like the prices just keep going up. I had the 4 Egg Meat Lovers omlett. It comes with 4 smaller pancakes. You can upgrade to the larger pancakes for a price which I didn't do. The meal was good. The price was $14.50. Normally, I don't spend this much on a... More

Worth the wait, but you can call ahead and get on a waiting list to minimize your wait. Everything I have ever ordered has been delicious. Hot chocolate to die for! It is hard to take your eyes off of other customers orders as thy go by.

Have been going for a long time . Terrific breakfast menu. Even have gluten free pancakes. Affordable and good locations around the neighborhood. Service is great , but some days there are long waits for a table. Food is worth waiting for. Ron

I think the food here is good, not fantastic. My poached eggs were a bit overdone. The menu is large and you'll find something you'll like. The staff is friendly. I think the prices are moderate, not necessarily low-budget. The restaurant is busy at peak breakfast times, especially weekends. Be prepared to wait. They do have call ahead seating. I... More

I go to breakfast every Sunday with my mom and my brother. We go to Original Pancake House usually for Mothers Day, Fathers Day or birthdays. It is fabulous. Sometimes there is a few minutes wait because it is so popular but you can call ahead. There is never much wait for your food. It is excellent - and I... More

We live in the area and have been here probably 3 times in the last 4 years because the food isn't very good. I think the portion size is huge which may be a draw to some, but I quality over quantity. I've had the crepes (which usually I love elsewhere) a couple times and feel I could have made... More

A wide range of choices for breakfast type food, waffles, pancakes, some good looking original recipes. Blueberry waffles and bacon cooked just right. Ok here's the "but" part. $22 for breakfast for one lonely guy? That did include a tip (20%) but still, waffles, bacon glass of milk, cup of coffee? I'm going to look for a coupon before I... More
