We were in the northern area and stopped at another breakfast restaurant. The wait was 25 to 30 minutes so we decided to go back to Montgomery to the "Pancake House." We're happy we did. We were told the wait would be 15 to 20 minutes. Within 15 minutes we were seated and coffee was in front of us. This... More

We live in Tennessee but when we have an opportunity to be in the Cincinnati area this is our "go to" place for a great breakfast experience. We have gone several times over the past three years and never ever had a bad meal. Hawaiian or Strawberry pancakes and the Western omelette are our favorites. The Tropical syrup and housemade...

Great food. Great service. Get there early on weekends to avoid the line. Lunch on a weekday is a treat and peaceful if you can swing it.

You cannot go wrong with classic diner choices either breakfast or lunch from the Original Pancake house. My mother-in-law loved her crepes, and I enjoyed my chicken salad on a croissant for our brunch. Service was nice and the coffee was good. It is an inexpensive alternative to chain places that I would choose again.

If you love to be spoiled at breakfast this is the place to go. The food is excellent and so is the service.

We took my mother in law there on a Monday morning for breakfast. The Sunday before we tried to go there for breakfast but the queue was simply impossible. But we liked it very much on Monday. My husband had the chorizo omlette and I had the sausage&eggs and my mother in law had eggs over easy with potatoes and... More

I have been enjoying breakfast at The Original Pancake House in Montgomery, OH since they opened. After living elsewhere for the past 9 years, it was great to return today and to TASTE that their attention to good food has not changed during my years away. Awesome pancakes as always!!

We eat breakfast here as often as possible. The pancakes are superb. I especially like their strawberry pancakes--always made with FRESH strawberries rather than preserves. They have a wide variety of pancakes and all are better than other breakfast places. We have eaten at others in this chain, but this one is the best. Service is also fine.

This is a great place for a Sunday breakfast with the whole family. The pancakes, crepes, and omelets are exceptional. My favorites are the spinach, feta cheese, and sun dried tomato omelet, and any of the fruity crepes. The portions are very large and some dishes, like the specialty pancakes, are best suited for sharing. Don't plan on eating again... More

They have about the best French toast for restaurant. The portion are large. So, consider sharing. This is not a fast restaurant, so expect to wait, but the coffee is good, so you get few extra refills.
