Tripadvisor never lets us down. Reviewers are correct when they say that it's worth the wait. A huge plate of blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup and whipped butter is what I had with a side of sausage. The sausage is the most delicious ever! My...More

This is a gem of a diner with an excellent menu. I had southern style eggs which came with 3 pancakes on the side. They were cooked to perfection. The staff was very gracious and attentive. I recommend this to any travelers to this area.

I've been going to this restaurant a couple times a month now. Their service is impeccable and the food is always excellent. Yes, there is a wait almost always, but so worth it.

I have frequented the Original Pancake House in Charlotte, NC many times. I was very excited to find one in Ohio. The wait time was not bad at all. Restaurant was clean and staff was great. I will be going back again soon. The dutch...More

My grandson, 9 years old, calls this "The world's best restaurant". That is because he can get fresh fruit and bacon there. Most restaurants don't have fruit, except for a fruit cup, on the menu. We have never had bad service or food that wasn't...More
