Just love to have breakfast at the Original Pancake Houses. One of the few breakfast places with truly excellent coffee. If they sold it by the pound I would buy it. Lots of yummy different kinds of pancakes and toppings plus the traditional stuff, all fresh and made to order. A real treat.

I have frequented this pancake house many times for many years. The pancakes themselves are good but frequently served cold. The bacon frequently seems like it was cooked yesterday-hard, dry and cold. Most waiters/waitresses are very good. They are attentive and with it. Then there are 3 men who need to up their attitude and up their game or find another line of work. Restaurant serving is not their calling. The place is very noisy unless you go at off hours. Very small seating area when waiting. Parking is more than sufficient. To me pancakes are not that special. One can order regular pancakes at almost any restaurant. This menu does have out of the ordinary pancakes. Prices acceptable for the product.

We were fortunate to be staying at a nearby motel and we found this "gem". It does not look like much from outside, but breakfast must be their specialty. The Saturday before Easter, we were told there would be a short wait, & we waited less than 5 minutes to be seated. Our server, Jeff, was polite & friendly, a real "people person", and he knows how take care of his patrons. Service was quick, and the pancakes, eggs and bacon were delicious! You can't go wrong here, and it seems that the locals all know it too. If you're looking for good food at a fair price, with great service, try this restaurant.

Bacon bacon bacon! Bacon was delicious and they made sure it was cooked right. When asked where our bacon was they said they had to make another batch because it wasn't done right.

Waffles were OK and so were the pancakes but its hard to screw those up. Oven baked omelette took too long and not worth the wait. Tasted OK overall though.
