Forget IHOP, these buttermilk pancakes are much better. We also had the Dutch Baby. You will have to wait an extra 20-25 minutes to get the Dutch Baby. They bake it in the oven. It is worth the wait. Regrettably, the wait time was over 30 minutes. My server was outstanding.

Came here for breakfast while on holiday and will be going back. The food was soooo good. Had the Big New York pancake and trust me it is big! The service was a little poor the guy didn't seem very interested but once we got our food it was very nice.

I called in my order and was told 30 minutes for it to be ready. When I arrived I waited another 20 minutes then they brought out the order and the food was cold. Would not recommend doing a carry out order.

The service was perfect and it a good location. There is another one in Birmingham that's much better. The food was not great and I thought it would be like the other one and I was very disappointed. I may be a bit picky for sure but faucet water only no carbonated drinks to choose from added more insult to... More

This is my neighborhood breakfast spot. I have been dining here for almost thirty years and it is still wonderful. I like the consistency of the food preparation and the kindness of the staff and highly recommend it. One tip is that you really need to get there before 9 am to beat the weekend rush!

Not only do they have the best pancakes ever! They have the best bacon also! The wait is long on weekends, but the food is always worth the wait.

A little pricey but worth every penny! You know it's gonna be a good day when there's a rainbow over the Original Pancake House. Better bring your appetite. Everything is huge.

my title says it all. They have a very extensive menu and selections to eat here. I had the Eggs Michael (which included an english muffin, sausage links, poached egg, with a mushroom sherry sauce poured over top of it and potato pancakes w/sour cream and applesauce), it was absolutely superb!!! If this says anything, we went there on a... More

The pancakes and the orange juice are my absolute favorite. It's nice little place and friendly faces

Brunches, bloody Mary's, and mimosas are the "in" thing. But there is something to be said for some throw back, down home, good breakfast food. The original Pancake House is one of these classics. I love the pancake stacks and coffee. My only issue is that I typically overate when I go here and am a little slow moving for... More
