Great pancakes, superb variety and amazing specialities - try the Apple Pancakes (well worth the 30 min wait!). Good and fast service, even when the place is packed.

Love this place! I had scrambled eggs , diced ham , hash browns and a pancake. Delicious but too much. With unlimited coffee for less than $10. My wife had the cheese omelette , also too much to eat but a great meal.

At the beginning this place was awesome but now is not as good as before. I think they can do better.

Love this place!!! We used to go to this restaurant back in NJ since we moved to Florida and found this place, we come for breakfast any other weekend. Omelettes here are the best, they're cooked in the oven, and are delicious, as well as the pancakes of course!! and the service has been great every time..:-)

The Original Pancake House was founded in Portland, Oregon in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Drawing upon their many years of experience in the culinary field, and their extensive working knowledge of authentic national and ethnic pancake recipes they were able to offer without compromise this unique and original menu which has gained national acclaim. Our recipes demand only the very finest of ingredients, such as 93 score butter, pure 36% whipping cream, fresh grade AA eggs, hard wheat unbleached flour, and our own recipe sourdough starter. Welcome to our house, we’re serving up the Next Best Thing to Breakfast in Bed!
