“Well worth the wait!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you go after 9 on a weekend expect a wait. But it's well worth the time for a breakfast that will fill you up for the whole day!

“If you want lots of breakfast food, this is the place”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

My whole family loves to go to the Original Pancake House as a large group. Everyone loves the selection, large portion sizes, and THE PANCAKES. Expect to wait for a table, especially on the weekend.

“Delicious pancakes”
Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

The original pancakes are good. Tried the granola pancakes and lemon ricotta pancakes...delicious! The service was great as well. We did call ahead for seating as it does cut your wait time in half. We highly recommend these pancakes!

Great food and a fun atmosphere!! Been here a couple of times and it just gets better. I had the soup and sandwich lunch special. Wow, that is a whole lot of food. DH had traditional eggs, pancakes and bacon. His comment "this is exactly the way it is supposed to be, YUM"!!! My sil had eggs benedict with potato pancakes, she said it was delicious.

“Best breafast in the world!!!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

To be honest, breakfast is my least favorite meal and I often skip it all together except when I am able to go to the Original Pancake House!!!! I am a huge fan of their hash browns and omelets as they melt in your mouth, but the pancakes have me hooked on the place for life. Although the wait is sometimes long, the staff always tries to accommodate you as quick as possible. Regardless the wait is worth it!!
