Visited many times. Always had very good service and excellent food. Usually have to wait a few minutes because it is so popular but it is worth the wait. Love the bacon.

I believe this chain started out perhaps in Atlanta Ga, they moved to Charlotte in 1992 and became a "instant hit" with waiting lines, at their original location, @Sharon Corners Shopping Center, across from upscale SouthPark Mall. I have been loyal to them for at least the first 15 years they were open. They opened up a 2nd Restaurant, in... More

you should come hungry and try several things. I love the pancakes with ligdonberries for a taste of scandinavia. But just their egg and bacon breakfasts are soo good. the bacon is always crispy, the food is well prepared and the service is equally good. I go out of my way to eat here whenever I am in town.

They have all types, flavors etc of pancakes, waffles, etc, but don't overlook their omelets. And don't be afraid to ask them to combine two that you like. For instance we combined the mushroom omelet with sherry sauce with their spinach and onion omelet. Taste bud meltdown! Plus you get a side of pancakes. What's not to love?

I have visited this place several times and have never had a bad experience here. From something simple as good coffee to a Dutch pancake you cannot go wrong here.

We have always had a good experience for the last 20 years we have been in Charlotte. On weekends the wait times can be rather long especially on a Sunday. This is a no frills atmosphere where the booths and tables are comfortable. The menu can be daunting for new patrons who have joined us on several occasions. The knowledgeable... More

OPH is a great breakfast food restaurant and great for kids. The food is fantastic, the servers are all prompt and helpful, and the prices are reasonable. I rarely deviate from my same order of eggs, pancakes, and bacon (which is thick cut and great) - but my kids all love the flavored pancakes and omelettes. The only negative is... More

Great breakfast spot. Omelets, eggs, pancakes (of course) and other selections. On a Saturday after 9 a.m., you should expect a wait. However, you won't be sorry.
