We ate here at about 9:00 on a Wednesday morning. Upon entering the restaurant and seeing the 2-sided fireplace and the comfortable wood decor,, we decided the building had previously been an up-scale restaurant. The hostess said no, they were the first restaurant in the building. We were surprised at the large menu, consisting of MANY kinds of pancakes and... More

Food is consistently good. The staff takes very good care of you. Call ahead to get your name on the list to move you to the head of the line of people waiting when you arrive.

We were out running errands and were close to the Maple Grove Original Pancake House. The Happy Husband has been wanting to try the Original Pancake House for a couple of years, and even though I have eaten there I figured it was good to participate in his experience... Having tried to stop and eat at various OPH locations and... More

One of my favorite breakfast spots in the Twin Cities, good service, fantastic food, and lovely atmosphere. I will continue to come here! They also have delicious lunches!

I honestly don't understand the fuss about the Original Pancake House. It's ok, but there are a variety of Twin Cities breakfast places that are their equal and many of these are less expensive. What do they do right? Their service is generally exceptional. Coffee is good as well, if you like the stronger stuff. There are some "foofoo" items... More

OPH has great food and drinks but you pay the price of horrible waits and it just happened that are visit was not enjoyable. We went out for a birthday party and made a reservation (they only do that for birthday parties, but you can call ahead). When we got there, we told them that we had a reservation for... More

Classic pancake house. Fabulous food. The ambiance isn't great, but its adequate. The staff is quite pleasant and clearly you come here for the food. Potato pancakes were like grandma used to make. Huge portions. Will definitely be back.
