Love it

We eat here when my mother comes in town. Great service and delicious food. Get the "no wait app" before going here; they usually have a long wait time, so this app is a must

If you are looking for a great breakfast place in Chesterfield this is your best bet! A little on the expensive side if comparing to Denny's, IHOP etc but worth every penny! Make sure to (besides the pancakes) try their freshly squeezed orange juice and corned beef hash! Great quality and great service! Also: they cater for gluten free!! They... More

just breakfast and lunch except Mondays. The weekend lunch line is unbelievably long but it shouldn't be a negative because what it means is that everyone loves this place. Certainly there is always exception. This place is relatively pricey (when compared to other breakfast joints) but this is no ordinary breakfast joint and you will not leave hungry. As far... More

Food and service was ok but the waiting is bad. They keep you in a small waiting area uncomfortable.

Your sure are right the lobby does get full in the winter. To help with the wait we have a nifty app you can load on your smart phone. NoWait is a free app that let's you add your name on the wait list whenever there is one cutting down on those crowded lobby's. Hope to see you soon! Thanks More

Today I had the works. It was delicious. We did have to wait about 30 minutes..but it is worth it. The staff is friendly and keeps the coffee cups filled up.

Thank you those great comments keep us on our game. The "Works" is a great combo, you should try our new Four Pepper Chicken Sausage links on it? More

My nephew and I came here for Sunday breakfast. Fortunately, we beat the crowd, as there was a long wait later--I guess that is a sign of how good it is. I had the lemon-ricotta pancakes with blueberries and the house-made sausage patties. My nephew had bacon pancakes. Everything was delicious. The service was good, but a bit slow at... More

Our party of 8 enjoyed our Saturday morning breakfast at OPH. Restaurant was busy, so we waited for our table. Our waitress Liz was fun & efficient. I chose the fried egg sandwich, my husband had a Santa Fe omelette & upgraded his pancakes to the blueberry lemon ricotta. Portions are large, food is delicious. The fresh squeezed OJ is... More

Check out the photo of this dish, I've never had a baked omelette. It was light and very flavorful. Reminded me of a soufflé. Fresh squeezed orange juice. The servers may need some training. Oana P used the phrase "no problem" (negative ) instead of "my pleasure", or "you're welcome." Just a little constructive criticism.

The food was ok but way overpriced for what selection they have. Not much else if you don't like pancakes. I realize it's a pancake house but that doesn't mean everyone in the family wants them! Service was very average as well.
