We had Saturday breakfast. Menu similar to IHOP, Perkins, etc. Excellent, fast, friendly Service. Reasonably priced. A good dining experience. If you are in the area and looking to eat, head over to the Original Pancake House knowing that you will have a pleasant meal.

Good breakfast and fairly large portions. I had corned beef hash and eggs and was very satisfied. My wife enjoyed her apple waffle. The cook overcooked my brother in laws omelet, but eventually got it right. Good food. A breakfast favorite.

Hostess, Kelly, was not friendly by any means. She was more concerned with the next people in line and getting people sat quickly than taking care of our needs and greeting us. We waited 15 minutes for her to take care of our bill, she...More
