I just came from having pancakes and I had a very sub par experience. Sausages were cold, eggs lukewarm, server Kelli had a weird attitude and she let me know or corrected me when I mentioned what I thought she said. Kelli, never correct the...More

My fiance raved about how good The Original House of Pancakes in Birmingham was. I didn't have the same sentiments. My omelet was disgusting and it was overcooked. I don't have a desire to go back. But the wait staff was really nice.

My husband and I went on Sunday afternoon. I was surprised the wait wasn't too long given the time we went. There are a good number of gluten free options. Great service and food. Tables are very close together though.

Around for many years, this pancake house is everything one wants in a pancake house. Great place for families and friends. The only problem is the wait - you may spend as much time here on Sunday as you spent in services!

Ate here recently- the pancakes are always good, but the omelettes are fabulous. I had an egg white omelette, with cheddar and tomatoes. The omelette was fluffy- very fluffy, which makes it extra filling and delicious. Service here is fast and friendly. Great breakfast spot....More
