It's been a while since we were in and we were glad to have a nice breakfast this morning. The portions, as always, can be split or you can take half of your meal home and have a 2nd breakfast! I had my usual (diced ham & scrambled eggs) and the wife had the Irish Omelet. Both came with a... More

Decent food in a casual setting. Nothing bad here at all, I just thought it was way overrated for the price. Nothing special at all.

Enjoy coming here on weekends, average wait is 30 minutes on Saturdays, but goes up on Sundays. Food is definitely worth the wait, veggie omelette is great tasting and large enough to share. Especially that it comes with mini pancakes (3). Also tried the cheese omelette which is also just as delicious as the veggie, comes with 3 pancakes as... More

The waitress, Rebecca, made it a fun outing. My veggie omelette was delicious. My friend had a pecan waffle and bacon that had to be done so crisp it looked awful to me, but he loved it. I'd go back anytime since the menu includes other offerings besides waffles and pancakes.

Love the variety of The Original Pancake House. The service is always wonderful, as some of the servers have been there for over 15 years. There is plenty of free parking nearby. The only trouble is the long Waits on the weekend. But it is well worth the wait. The pricing is moderate and it is definitely family-friendly. The portions... More

Really large portions, many options for the kiddos. Pancakes were delicious! We went really early on Sunday per my sister's recommendation (she lives in the area) as it gets really busy. Great option if you're in the area, but I wouldn't make a special trip for it.

Wonderful place for breakfast 🍳 try the oatmeal. We always share the omelet pancakes and a side order of bacon.

The pancakes were huge, but consistently good!!! We went looking for the slices of kosher salami, and they had them. Some places only have the bits of salami in the eggs and not a la carte, but this one does. I ordered a second order since it is rare to find the salami by itself. The pancakes are wonderful, but...

This was a perfect breakfast after thanksgiving. No cooking and the food was good. The German pancake was oven baked and tasty. Cramped and crispy bacon hit the spot and the coffee cups were kept full. The place is not suitable for quiet conversation but if you're a pancake lover this is the place
