Went for breakfast will be back for other meals too!

We visited on a Sunday for breakfast around 9:15. The place was packed with a full waiting area and benches out front. The wait was about 40 minutes to be seated. I found out later they have call a head seating. The wait staff were hustling around but all were smiling. Our server, Needles is... read more

This place has huge and fluffy omelets that are loaded with ingredients. The flavor of the pancakes is second to none. The cheesy hashbrowns are so huge they could be a meal by themselves. The blueberry pancakes are loaded with blueberrys.

My girlfriend and I have been to OPH several times over the last 2 years. We learned quickly to call ahead for reservations as there are usually people waiting outside to get in. The menu has all of your standard breakfast fare, as well as many unique items. I haven't had anything I have not enjoyed yet. The bacon looks... More

Based on what I read on Tripadvisor we stopped at The Original Pancake House in Sioux Falls for a late 9:30 AM breakfast. We noticed a lot of cars in the lot and were surprised at the number of people eating breakfast, not just doing coffee. First impressions start with clean and the OPH was that. Next is how quickly...

This is your typical, busy, American breakfast place. However and most importantly, they serve thick cut bacon, not paper thing cheap stuff and they have an option at an upcharge to get real maple syrup, not the fake, thick goop that most places have as the only option.

This place is in decline...I have eaten here about six times over the course of the last couple years and I will not return. It has gotten to be just like "IHOP" or Denny's. Thick-cut bacon, but "OH WOW! BIG DEAL!" I could buy 2 lbs, if not more for what we paid for out meal. NOT IMPRESSED...Not anymore! Even... More

I've been here several times. They have a great variety of pancakes. My grandpa loves coming here and he always orders the German Potato Pancakes (he's German) and loves them. Service is friendly, and the rest of the pancakes, are, well, just good pancakes in many different flavors. It's nice though that there is something for everyone on the menu.... More
