“Very Good Breakfasts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The Original Pancake Houses always provide very good, consistent breakfasts. In Pleasant Hill the service was excellent, courteous and fast. The staff was very friendly. The food was very good. The selections of pancakes are wonderful. Great for kids too. The prices are very reasonable, too.

Okay atmosphere, poor service. Food was fine. Don't waste your money here; you can make better food at home

“Classic pancake house fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

My wife and I frequent the OPK every so often when we have guests in town. We try to get there early- it gets crazy busy after 9:30 am on weekends.
The hostesses are always very sweet with our young kids. They have coloring for them to do at the table as well.
I highly recommend the potato pancakes, and my wife loves their chocolate chip pancakes. They don't really have a kids' menu, but they do have a short stack for little pancake fans. Service is usually pretty good, but you can get neglected if it's super busy, but on the few occasions when that happened to us, the manager made sure we were happy and well taken care of.
There is also a balloon lady who comes on the weekends and will make balloon animals for tips. A huge hit with the kids!
