the pancakes are really good here & always be prepared to wait 45 minutes - but worth it. As good as the pancakes are - the omlets are better. I love omlets but have never one as good as these. It's amazing how long you have to wait and how quicly you get out of there.

If you are hungry for breakfast go no further! Whatever the wait time is....wait...it will be worth it! I have never had a bad meal here from the omelettes to the Camp Fire hash. I have never left hungry and usually cannot finish all of the food they bring. This restaurant is also Celiac friendly as they offer gluten free... More

We were staying over at the hampton inn and decided to come for brunch. We had the crab cake over and English muffin and topped with over easy egg. We had blueberry pancakes and sausage links. I enjoyed topping my pancakes with their creamy butter or cream and some honey to sweeten

My wife and kids decided to surprise me with a yummy breakfast at the Original Pancake House this morning. It had been too long since we were there. We have typically visited on Easter, Mother’s Day, or other holidays, when there are significantly longer waits. Today included a wait, but slower than what we’re used to… at least when we... More

We were immediately seated and this place was busy. My wife ordered sausage and eggs with pecan pancakes, which she said was good. I had Bacon Lovers special with bacon pancakes, can't say enough, if you like bacon then this is the way to go, it was so good. Jessica was our waitress and was very attentive. Breakfast for two...

Yes there's a huge variety of pancakes along with delicious eggs, bacon and even Wolfermann English muffins! What is unexpected is the terrific service and that you can get an extra cup of coffee or glass of tea to go when you leave. What a great idea!

Nice interior and atmosphere, great service: quick, polite, with a smile. Juice just made fresh for you. There are delicious crepes and pancakes, omelets, almost everything. We ordered French crepes with fresh strawberries, potato pancakes, Thick Sliced Hickory Bacon. Coffee is very good as well. We and kids love this place. It's better then I HOP we visited often before.... More
