We loved the OPH. The signature Apple pancakes were DELICIOUS, the server was super friendly, food came out quickly, and the atmosphere was great, very family-oriented. $8-11 per dish.

The food was good not great. We got a free stack of pancakes for Tuesday . The bacon was the best nice and meaty and crisp.
