We had breakfast first thing at 0700 on Father’s Day when we had to leave early from our Pearl District hotel. A gay pride parade was going to shut down the street outside our hotel unless we left by 0630AM (nearly $300/night). Even at 0700...More

Our group of 6 went there for Mother's Day, so we waited for at least 1 hour, maybe more, to be seated. We ordered assorted pancakes, Dutch baby, flapjacks. They were fillings & tasty, but overpriced (no sides). Spouse's '49 flapjacks were disappointing; he expected...More

Glad I had some. Buttermilk Pancakes were fine. They got my buddies egg order wrong but they brought out the right eggs pretty quickly. I ordered mine over medium and they were over easy. I thought the service was prompt. They have been in business...More

VIsited the OPH to Celebrate a birthday. It had been about 25 years since the last visit. Somethings never change and this restaurant hasn't since the 50's when it opened. It's a cash only restaurant. The food is good but expensive considering. It's a pancake...More
