Original Pancake House Restaurant Review

: If you go on a weekday morning, you’ll get a table right away; on weekend mornings, the line is out the door (but the tables turn around fast). The restaurant is really one big room with most tables snug against each other, but that just adds to the cheer. The baked apple pancake is the star of the menu, and if you’ve never had one you’re in for a treat. Then again, the bacon-stuffed pancakes and the waffles are tasty, too. This is our favorite place for corned beef hash. Other locations.
