“OPH rocks, as usual!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Back home in MN, my son and I love going to OPH. They have THE best omelettes and pancakes around and the service is always great. Same results at our visit to the OPH in Sioux Falls. I had eggs and bacon (note to the OPH's in MN - in SD you get 4 pieces of the delicious bacon, not 3!!) and great coffee. My son had eggs and hickory smoked ham, which he really liked.

The only negative was the hostess. We walked in, along with another couple, and she said "Just one moment please" and then proceeded to make a personal phone call to her mother. She also seated an elderly couple and when the lady asked her a question, the hostess said "Right here", pointed to the booth, and rolled her eyes. Very rude.

Great food, great service, horrible hostess.

“Great Apple Pancake”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

My husband and I LOVE the Apple Pancakes at OPH. We had one over the weekend at OPH and it was a very enjoyable. You can give the staff a heads-up that you want to order one when you arrive - it takes them a while to make one. We enjoyed hashbrowns (you can share - the plate is huge) and bacon before the pancake arrived. Friendly staff.

“Service needs improvement”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

As long time customers we were dismayed that we were not made to feel welcome today. Waited over 5 minutes after being seated before we were acknowledged by wait staff and waited further to get water and coffee. Previously were able to get half orders of some menu items but no longer. Seems that Custermer satisfaction is no longer a priority. Lack of training or lack of caring?? Order came out incorrect and we were not served at the same time. No milk or cream was served with cereal. Presentation was lacking. Management needs to pay attention!!

“Best Pancake Restaurant in the World”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

We've always had great meals and service here. I've never had a bad meal. The bacon is nice and thick. The pancakes melt in your mouth. The hash browns are golden brown. I've had their BLT several times, and it always satisfies. My kids pick this restaurant every time.

“Pricey for breakfast (but get the buffalo burger !!)”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

THE best place in the region for 8 oz buffalo burger for under $10 - includes side. Stay away on weekend until mid afternoon - too busy/hectic.
