I have frequented the Original Pancake House in Charlotte, NC many times. I was very excited to find one in Ohio. The wait time was not bad at all. Restaurant was clean and staff was great. I will be going back again soon. The dutch baby and strawberry pancakes are AMAZING!!

My grandson, 9 years old, calls this "The world's best restaurant". That is because he can get fresh fruit and bacon there. Most restaurants don't have fruit, except for a fruit cup, on the menu. We have never had bad service or food that wasn't served at the right temperature. Always fast, and the coffee is great.

The food was very good and we were easily seated with a party of five on a Saturday morning at 8:30am. It was apparent that the crowd was arriving as we were leaving so my best advice is to get there early! The place isn't very big and it's popularity is pretty obvious. Three Pigs in a Blanket, omlets, and... More

Had the chance to try out this fine, long standing restaurant. I can say I was not disappointed in the least bit. The service was wonderful and I was treated with a smile. Since this was my 1st time here, I didn't know what to expect. But the food and hospitality made up for any doubts I may have had.... More

This review is for the service and logistics at Original Pancake House in Cincy, NOT the food or the dining experience. Unfortunately, we never got a chance to actually try the food or spend any time there. We visited family recently, and wanted to get some Sunday brunch. Seeing the good reviews, and craving some yummy breakfast, seemed like a... More

Wonderful atmosphere and great service. It is a busy place but for good reason. If you do go make sure you get a order of bacon. So thick, it was delicious. Crepes was also very good.

Took our crew to Original Pancake House for breakfast before a recent Kings Island Trip. This was our first visit. The restaurant is bright and clean and nicely decorated. We were greeted on the spot and tables were moved together to accommodate our group. The breakfast menu is extensive with lots of specialties, and portions are good sized. Choose from... More
