“Another great visit....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

My 2 adult sons and I took my wife on Mother's Day, of all days. They were BUSY! But the service was still the best we've ever had there. Juan, our waiter, was so nice, attentive and quick. We even made it a point to tell the manager. The food was terrific as usual. I do have one complaint. While the meal prices are reasonable, the cost of drinks and "sides" is outrageous. Seriously....4 sausage links for $3.89? A glass of orange juice for $3.65? Stick to the meals with water or coffee and you're OK. I'd give it 5 stars if I didn't feel those two things were a bit of a rip-off.

“If you haven't been...”

The best breakfast around. Real great for children too. A little pricey for breakfast, but the quality of food and service make it a no brainer.

Wow!!! The absolute best pancakes and fresh orange juice. French omelette was very authenic. Pricey but worth every penny you will spend

“Pancakes with a taiste of their own”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

How about a Swedish Pancake,or Blueberry, or chocolate chocolate chip pancake, even apple, potato,and banana pancakes. Crepes french, cherry or peach. Special egg omelettes, corned beef hash and eggs. Really fresh squeezed orange or grapefruit juces. The Original Pancake House has them all, and more. With six area locations to choose from, you taiser can't go wrong. Very family friendly, and a staff that seem to be able to meet your every wish, you can't go wrong. I like the Swedish panckes with their own Swedish lingonberries and whipped butter, while my wife loves the Western Cheese Omelette with side of Buckwheat pancakes. You always can't wait for your next visit...
