This is a nice breakfast spot. We hit it just right before the crowd at 11. They have large servings. Everything looked great. The pancakes were light and fluffy

I am certainly not a breakfast snob. Put food in front of me and I generally eat it. Unfortunately the cook or management here decided to economize by pre-making the entire breakfast (the Works). As a result, the pancakes were cool, the poached eggs were cold, and the hash browns were cool. The only warm thing was the bacon. Service... More

We were totally impressed with this place. The restaurant is very bright and so CLEAN. The wait staff is friendly and very accommodating. Nothing that we asked for was a problem. The menu is extensive and the value is good. We are out of towners and if in this area again we will be sure to revisit.

We were glad this restaurant was open on Dec 17, 2016, we were caught in a freezing rain storm. We were served by Aster, who was very friendly,knowledgeable and the service was great. The pancakes were great. My husband could not finish his breakfast, which was a western omelette.

I was disappointed. I've been to this same restaurant in Dallas and it was fab. This was kind of run down. My food tasted strange. Can't put my finger on it but everything just had a weird wang to it. The best thing was the bacon. I had pancakes, eggs and hashbrowns which are basic but it was just off.

Always delicious breakfast food. Intended to have lunch (salad or sandwich) but was lured by their mini-omelette and piping hot pancakes. Wish they didn't close at 3 pm!

The service was great and the food was very good... I really enjoyed the pancakes with bacon. We had a slight mishap with a spilled drink and the wait staff was right there to assist with cleanup. I was impressed with the service given how busy the restaurant was.

I consistently get good food at this Original Pancake House. They also have fresh squeezed orange juice, which can be hard to find. The waffles are always done very well and the bacon is nice and crispy -- just the way I like it. Service is pleasant, polite, and attentive. Great restaurant!

Food here is good, there are some unique menu items that take fun approaches to classic breakfast items. Prices are a dollar or two more than I'd expect on some of the most random things (coffee rarely costs more than soft drinks?). Nothing that would keep me from eating here. I had the eggs benedict and it was really good,... More
