Nice place for Pancake but parking can be challenging. There is another Original Pancake House in Saratoga and it is closer to home.

This groupon is typically only available on a weekday, void on holidays. If you can make it out to breakfast during that time GRAB IT! The best pancakes (any kind - really, I have had lots of different ones!) and perfect bacon every time!! I get the Bacon & Eggs which comes with 3 pancakes which they will let you modify to certain types of specialty pancakes however not applicable it you are getting the Swedish pancakes, crepes or dutch baby for example. The service it always very good to great, the coffee plentiful and feed excellent.

After having being seated, it took 10 minutes for someone to take our order and there were only 6 other people in the entire restaurant . . . 4 of which were already there when we were seated! The pancakes we ordered, took 25 minutes to arive and when they did, the German pancakes looked just like small patties of hash browns smushed together. My son had the bacon pancakes and liked them, but it just took forever to get to us. We won't go back . . . even with a Groupon.

the waffles are excellent! Omelets are wonderful too, except they need to go lighter on the oil

The staff was negative from the moment we walked in the door. They were not friendly at all and the food was just ok.

Extremely slow service. Food is overpriced and not worth the $. Place is dingy and dirty. Will not return.

From Our Editors

The ancient Greeks gave us many things, but one of the most edible is the pancake. Thus it’s no surprise that in the many centuries since its inception, most countries have put their own spin on it. When Les Highet and Erma Hueneke were developing The Original Pancake House in 1953, they asked women around the world to share their favorite recipes. Though their first location has since expanded into a nationwide family of restaurants, the menu is loyal to the recipes submitted 60 years ago. In fact, they’re the signature dishes: the dutch baby is an airy version dusted with powdered sugar, and the apple pancake is baked in an oven beneath fruit slices and a cinnamon-sugar glaze. The menu has since expanded to include omelets studded with sugar-cured ham or fresh mushrooms—all served with three buttermilk pancakes, of course. Like a swimming pool filled with margarita mix, lunch selections introduce an unexpected Mexican flair, igniting palates with dishes such as steak fajitas with bell peppers and jalapeños.
