If you're going out for breakfast in Sioux Falls, this is your stop. That being said, it's a very popular place, especially on Saturday and Sunday mornings, so be prepared for a wait on those days. Original Pancake House has a huge menu, and everything my husband and I have ever tried has been excellent. The staff is very friendly,... More

Pancake options and variations are very vast! The eggs were good! I had the chocolate chip pancakes 5 for the price listed on the menu. Very filling! My cousin had coconut pancakes, she loved them. Kids menu was great. 2 pancakes and sausage Pattie $5. Drinks not included. Staff was great. Environment great.

Tried this for the first time. I will be back. Had the cinnamon french toast and bacon. It was a thick savory bacon. French toast may be the best in town. Everything the rest of the group had looked great. Many more things I want to try here.

We are residents of Sioux Falls and consider the OPH one of the top restaurants in town. The food is top notch - great coffee, thick bacon, friendly service and, of course, outstanding pancakes. The only negative is that it closes at 3:00 PM. The weekends experience lines for a table!

Our trips to South Dakota ALWAYS include a breakfast at the Original Pancake House. The food is always GREAT and the service is too! Bacon is thick, pancakes are delicious and coffee is fresh and always served promptly.

I enjoy coming here after a workout because I know the portions are huge and I will get my money's worth! The pancakes are delicious! A little on the pricey side, but the flavor is unique and you don't find that taste elsewhere in town. At least I haven't found it yet :)

Third breakfast visit here in a month with eleven people. Every time the service and food have been the same-excellent. They have a great gluten free selection and don't forget the bacon!

After over 30 years in the wholesale food business I would like to share this review. This location, service, quality, menu selections etc., specific to breakfast is the best available period! I am one who skips this important meal BUT never when I'm in Sioux Falls. Don't miss this gem folks. Thank you.

We eat here often when in Sioux Falls and today was the first visit for this years trip to Sioux Falls. The coffee was good but the service for filling up our cup was not. We had to ask for a refill from another server as ours seemed to be too busy! I saw one gentleman get up and get... More

While all of the food here is simply amazing, be sure to order a glass of FRESH SQUEEZED OJ. You won't regret it. The service is outstanding--consistently!
