We had a great time visiting Honolulu and going to Original Pancake House for breakfast. So popular, had a bit of a wait but it was well worth it. The food was terrific, especially Dutch Baby - It was fantastic and so really good! The omelette was great too! The service was excellent as always.

I got an omelette with ground beef and spinach with salsa, and it was a pretty solid meal... I didn't manage to finish it. It paled in comparison to the Apple Pancake "house specialty" that my fiancé got, which was spectacular. The prices were very reasonable, though the wait was a bit long, and it takes 45-60min to get the... More

I highly recommend this place to anybody visiting who wants some delicious pancakes. Their apple pancake was amazing and well worth the 45 minute wait (after ordering). Service was a little slow, but more than reasonable considering how packed this place gets Sunday morning.

Old-style pancake house. Good service, good senior menu. Mushroom omelette was terrible--overcooked and tough on the bottom and mushroom sauce was bland. Fruit pancakes on other tables looked good.

Get there early or a little later after the morning rush. It's not a super big location. It feels homey and is packed with locals. If you are looking for good food and not your usual plain bacon and eggs (although they do have that) this is it. Everyone at my table had something different and they all loved it.... More

This place is a great place for casual, but great tasting down home breakfast! We were on Oahu for a day and wanted to get some breakfast before my first appointment and decided to try the Original Pancake House based on the reviews and online menu. We were not disappointed! Greeted by a pleasant woman who gave us a choice... More

This was the worst food Ive ever eaten. Everything was soggy, soaked in grease, flavorless and cold. The place was packed with locals, Im not sure what they were ordering but it couldnt have been what I ordered which was bacon and eggs. Terrible food.
