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.

The pancake restaurant is is in suburban strip mall with plenty of parking. Inside the decor is of a very nicely decorated family restaurant. The breakfast menu is available all day and there's a lunch menu of hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, salads, etc. But it's the breakfast menu that draws people in. Pancakes, waffles and crepes, including most available... More

If you go on a weekend, you need to be really planful. They don't take reservations, but do call-ahead seating. So call AT LEAST an hour before you want to get there. I haven't been there on a weekday, so I don't know if it's better. The food was fantastic. Being a pancake house, I had high expectations for the... More

We love this place for breakfast! They have delicious pancakes! They also have great bacon and other breakfast foods! We have never been disappointed. The only downfall with this place is the wait. They are only open until mid afternoon and are always busy when we are there. We have waited upto 40 minutes sometimes. Definitely call ahead if you... More

So much yummy food....the veggie omelet with pepper jack cheese tastes just as the good the second morning. The staff keep your java cup full and they are hometown friendly. We went on a Friday morning so there was just a 5 minute wait. One of our favorites
