This is one of the best breakfast in st. Louis and it is consistent wherever you go..the orange juice is squeezed fresh, the hash browns are made from fresh potatoes and Wolferman's english muffins are served. The pancakes are light and fluffy .. My only complaint is how long you sometimes have to wait for a table because it is... More

Went here for a late breakfast. I got gluten free blueberry pancakes. Make sure you ask for to compote. It came with six 4" diameter pancakes. My wife got a ham and cheese omelette with 3 regular pancakes. Everything was excellent. This is a very popular restaurant, so expect a 30min wait for your table on the weekend. They are... More

This was my first visit and my delightful waitress recommended the strawberry and chocolate crepe. The single crepe is huge and a little doughy. It was filled with creamy milk chocolate and topped with chocolate chips, fresh strawberry slices, and whipped creme. Yummy! But the meal cost $15 with coffee.

This is the place to satisfy those desires for all those foods you love. This visit was even better than my visit several years ago. Their in season peaches were added to some dishes one of which I tried which was a peach blintz. The menu was better than ever with a long list of breakfast favorites. The thick bacon... More

Great food, about a 30 minutes wait but lots of shopping around to take up that time. Service was friendly and quick.

The menu is daunting to some, but like Everest the challenge is there for the brave. The now-off-menu item "The Log Cabin" has taken center stage at our table 5 of the last 6 visits. Yet, everything on the menu has to be good. Why? My wife has ordered just over half the pancake options, most omelette options, and several... More

All your favorite breakfast fare (on steroids!). Generous portions, friendly service, and Etch-a-Sketches for the young (and young at heart. Not exactly cheap.

We love coming to the pancake house even though it's a bit of a drive for us. Food is always great, and we have awesome service from Chris! Also love to be able to check in on the no wait app.

My wife and I recently ate at The Original Pancake House in the Chesterfield Valley. Here are our observations for you to consider: We went about 8:30 on a Sunday morning and only had a 5-10 min wait. This place is extremely popular (especially on the weekend). By the time we came out, the line was long and extending out... More
