On my first visit the wait was no fun. Today 7-16-2016 the wait was ok. Expect to wait. BUT today's service was outstanding thanks to our waitress Brooke L. We were there about noon. She was friendly, outgoing with all her tables. Food was served fast and hot. The extras we asked for came with out any issues. Thanks for... More

Thanks for sharing your visit, glad you enjoyed your breakfast. We will pass on the comments about Brooke. If you don't already have our "Nowait" app it's a great one to have, it lets you get in line from home when we are on a wait. Hope to see you again soon! More

We ate here one morning on a family vacation to St Louis. I was impressed how quickly they seated us, how quickly our order was taken and how quickly the food came out. Good food with large portions. My children are grown but I still thought $100 for the 5 of us was a bit steep. Great food if you... More

What a great breakfast! Can't decide what was our favorite - fresh squeezed OJ, bacon, Apple pancake or the omelette. All were exceptional! Service was very friendly and attentive. Big thumbs up...

We went for breakfast mid-morning on Saturday, so we were expecting a wait. The time was to be 45 minutes with a text when our table was ready. We decided to make the most of our time and ran to the Lowes nearby to pick up the grill we were going there to purchase. We loaded it in our car... More

First visit for the family on a Tuesday morning; arrived at 11:30 AM and there was no wait. Our server, Desirae, was incredible. I'm not kidding when I say that Desirae ranks in the top 10 servers we have ever experienced and the best waitress we've seen in the last few years. Ordered Seasonal Berry Crepe, Spinach Omelet, Short Stack... More

I hate to tell you a secret. When we arrived at this wonderful restaurant they told the couple ahead of us that the wait would be 90 minutes. A couple of visits ago the manager asked if we would mind eating at the breakfast bar. Wait time 0 minutes, Not only is the service fast and attentive at the bar,... More

Came here with my friend after having another friend recommend it to us with a glowing review. While the wait was very long on a Sunday morning, (make sure you download No Wait!) we had a pleasant breakfast overall. The only part of the meal that wasn't great were the scrambled eggs. We both ordered ours with cheese and there... More

Service is very fast and friendly. The orange juice is fresh and tasty. Had a berry crepe and it was huge and delicious. The omelette is really good too. Great way to start the day!

We visit the Original Pancake House often. The staff is always friendly and our coffee cups stay filled. Pancakes are the specialty of the house but one can also choose from delicious crepes and waffles and breakfast combos. The bacon is thick cut and generous. On our recent visit, I tried the savory crepes that are filled with eggs/cheese/spinach. Delicious.... More
