We were visiting with our aunt who lives in an assisted living community and she wanted to go to this place and eat. When we got there we were told it was going to be a 90 minute wait but our aunt REALLY wanted to eat here so we tried to find a place for her to sit while we... More

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

Very busy on a Saturday morning and we did have to sit and wait almost 30 minutes, but that was no worse than any other place on a weekend morning.

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
