Close to our hotel and very friendly. Food was great, but it did get a little warm once the sun was rising a bit more. Ceiling fans were turned on to help bring the heat down. Recommend for anyone wanting great breakfast food or more.

Being a Phoenix native, I have wanted to try this restaurant for a very long time. We were a party of 6 including kids. There is no kids menu. The server was very friendly and took our drink order right away. She returned to take the breakfast order quickly and the food was served in the appropriate amount of wait... More

My sister-in-law, who lives in Florida, gave me a $50 gift card for the Original Pancake House as a birthday present. She purchased it at a Florida location of this chain, and chose the gift because they have a Scottsdale location where I reside. I went for breakfast, which was very average when compared to the large number of good... More

You can't go wrong with the original! Lots of choices for a wonderful breakfast -- with a western flair too.

Best place for breakfast ever; always busy so if you can't wait 30-45 then go elsewhere! My favorite was the biscuits and gravy since I feel personally that a good pancake is a lot like pizza; you have to try to make a bad one.

Where is the gluten free menu? We have at other OPH's in MN and they all have gluten free options for my wife. Came here cuz we thought they had options. Kinda disappointed.

Everyone said you have to try this great pancake house and boy were they right. The food and service was excellent. If you are diet conscious and want a wonderful bowl of oatmeal or want to go all out for a major caloric rush with waffles deluxe this is the place! We had an amazing breakfast with pancakes and omelets... More

I've been going to this spot on and off for sixteen years. I used to live in Scottsdale and now vacation there annually. The food is excellent and the atmosphere quaint. Be prepared for a line on the weekends and sometimes the weekdays too - especially during Spring Training. My most recent trip to Scottsdale, mid-March 2016, I got my... More

I have been coming to this restaurant since I was a child. I've met the owner several times and he is a great guy. They have the best pancakes. I don't eat pancakes anymore but there is still plenty to choose from. Eggs, bacon, omelettes, etc..

My favorite breakfast are the "49'ers" . A crepe which doesn't require a filling - try it with the apple syrup. You might even see a celebrity having breakfast here.
