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

This location is a family favorite for us. Serene setting with high leather booths. The wait staff has always been top notch for us. We have our favorites but always wiling to try new things because we're never disappointed. Something for everybody.

This is a must try in our book! Go there if you can. The food is delicious, so many great choices and specials. We were very impressed with the level of staffing and how well managed they are. I think other restaurant managers should go and take notes! Warm and friendly, but quick and efficient staff.

Gotta make this a family habit. Every Sunday morning, the lines are huge but worth it. Great wait staff, wonderful meals, top notch!

We found this pancake house next door to our hotel. I had the Swedish pancakes. They were crepe thin and so big they had to fold them over to get them on the plate. The lingonberry sauce was just like my grandma made. If you like pancakes you can't go wrong at this restaurant.
