If disabled, stay away. Manager would not let an 87 year old advanced Parkinson’s patron (who was tested Covid-negative day earlier) wait for her table inside the warm restaurant. The Manager said she can wait outside in the cold… or sit in her warm car to wait. Extremely POOR customer service demonstrating extreme lack of care for their patrons, let alone those that are disabled.


Excellent as usual. We have been enjoying this place for over 40 yrs ever since our kids were little ,my last visit was with our grandkids. Food quality & service is very consistent. During busy time the lines are long to get in. That has never stopped us ‘coz it moves fast . Staff is always very efficient & courteous. 👍👍👍

Heavenly French Toast & Bacon from the gods...

You can always tell if a restaurant has great food by the amount of people waiting outside in line to dine inside. Any serving of pancakes or french toast you order, be prepared to take some home with you as the portions are HUGE! And don't forget to add bacon, EVERYBODY loves their bacon!

If you like breakfast, this is the place to visit. Whenever my BFF from VA comes to town this is the only place that's on the "must visit" list. We have the Big Apple. I also enjoy their crepes--cherry and peach are my favs. They have daily specials after 4 p.m. Friday is the night for Big Apples. All I don't finish I take home and it reheats well. I've been visiting the Original Pancake House over 20 years and never get tired of the place. Food is wonderful, staff is good and some are great. Friendly place. Prepare for a wait on the weekend--line out the door--but well worth the wait. Enjoy as we do!!!

This pancake house is one of my favorites. I visit each time I go to Detroit. They serve a "Big Apple". A large pancake smothered with cooked apples and cinnamon/sugar. It is a large portion and worth the cost. The place is fairly popular. The line is out the door on the weekends but it is not too long to wait for a "Big Apple" or if you really have an appetite add sausage and eggs.



Great Food

Don't go on Saturdays and Sundays if you are hungry because you will have to wait. I love their pancakes and omelettes..they usually fill me up for the entire day! Friendly Staff...



The Best Breakfast!

This restaurant has been my favorite place for out of the ordinary breakfast experiences. French Crepes, The Big Apple, etc. Homemade whipped cream & the bacon is AWESOME!!!
