The owners here know how to run a restaurant. Great menu with a variety of items. Delicious pancakes, waffles & crepes. Food is always hot and unless there happens to be a peak in customers, wait time is minimal. The tables are always cleared as...soon as customers leave. Staff is amazing!!More

This location is on Westgate Shopping Center in Fairview/Rocky River. I ordered food via Uber Eats on 11-24-21. The topping and the food were GREAT. One full order of strawberry pancakes and bananas foster will feed one adult and four kids. The toppings are fun...for kids.More

This was a brunch stop, my very last stop (aside from rest stops along the New York Thruway) on a 10-day trip that took me as far west as Columbus and Toledo, Ohio.. Expecting a large stand-alone restaurant, this is a blink-and-miss place in a...denser part of Cleveland. Once inside, it's a pleasant, decent-sized typically breakfast-style restaurant, one of a small chain covering a large part of the nation. The service was very good, as was the food. I had two short stack pancakes because I wanted to try a variety. I opted for the buttermilk and the buckwheat...two very good choices. The orange juice and the coffee were very good, too. They also offer French toast, crepes, waffles, egg specialties, omelets and lunch specialties. This is a very good breakfast place, as probably are the other Buffalo area locations.More

First time here. Parking lot nearly full and a half hour wait in the early afternoon. A good sign for sure. They have a fairly extensive menu with lots of options. Ordered an omelet with a side of pancakes. The omelet was huge and the...cakes were awesome. The coffee was actually good as well and the service was excellent. Would definitely eat here again. There is no chance of leaving hungry here lol.More

Terrific place for breakfast. The menu has plenty of options. The staff is always friendly and attentive. They are always busy but the virus restrictions have cut their seating capacity but service is still great. Our waitress Laurel did terrific. Great for couples or families...and kid friendly. The Resturant is actually in 3000 Westgate Shopping Center, Fairview Park Ohio, 44126.More

I can't help myself. Everytime I go there I get the cherry kijafa crepes. OMG they are perfect. My mouth is watering while I write this. This place is always busy and we always have had to wait but it has never been an excessive...wait time. Prices are better than reasonable and food is always good.More

The place was quite crowded around 10:00am on a Sunday morning and my wife and I had to wait over half of an hour to get seated. A friendly atmosphere with quite a few families with children and senior adults. Servers were friendly, efficient, and...timely. Menu is very broad. Selections have large portions, are expensive, and average in quality. For us this is a once in a while outing. Would not frequent on a regular basis.More

My favorite breakfast spot. You have to go with patience as the wait is always long on weekends but worth the wait!

Went to Original Pancake House with my Mom after a doctor's appointment. Was seated right away. I was surprised at how roomy it was inside and the amount of tables. Ordered the Nutella Crepes. If you're a fan of chocolate, then the Nutella Crepes are...for you. Stuffed with Nutella, powdered sugar on top and whipped cream to finish it off. Washed it down with their fresh squeezed orange juice. It came with 3 crepes but I could only finish 2. Made for a nice breakfast the next morning. If you're looking for a great breakfast at very reasonable price, come to the Original Pancake House. You won't regret it.More

If I ate here every day, the waistline would be to the point that Oman the Tentmaker would have to be my clothier!! Excellent selection of pancakes, waffles, crepes, and styles of these entrees make every visit special. They are not open past 2:00, yet...are always busy, the place is clean, efficient staff and management, and never had a bad meal here. There is so much to choose from and it really puts the so-called breakfast chains in the running for competition. You definitely want to visit the Original Pancake House, you WILL be back!!More

We got in on Sunday a little before 9:00am and had about a 2 minute wait. As we were seated, Diana appeared almost immediately, ready with menus, taking drink orders...just the kind of friendly yet slightly salty waitress you hope to encounter at a pancake...place. Had a little schpeel she gave which concisely gave an overview, then gave us a few minutes at navigate the menu. Never felt rushed. Coffee refreshers a plenty, very good Dutch Baby, chocolate chip pancakes (both of which our group of 4 split) and excellent substantial bacon as a side. Diana was attentive but not overbearing. Such a great experience. As we were leaving, the waiting area was full, spilling out the door...got in just before the rush!More

Literally this place served me the biggest omelette I've ever seen. I was able to order it Keto, which is hard to find when eating out. Also, they have really good thick cut bacon that they get from one farm they use for all their...bacon. The meatlover's omelette was the size of my plate and I took it home and had it for lunch the next day at work as well.More

We drove 20 minutes two days in a row for gluten free pancakes and found the best bacon ever! Pancakes were great, and they have sugar free syrup too! I ordered a side of bacon and it was so thick and cooked perfectly! Prices were...so reasonable and the quality was consistent from day to day. We are early risers and the restaurant was open at 7am sharp! Will definitely return to any location, we had visited the franchise in Florida in December and it was very consistent.More
