We got there around 9AM on a Sunday, and we were surprised at the number of people there. We were told a short wait. Well it was less than two minutes before the hostess called us, and we were seated. I had the special of the Holiday Link and Eggs ($10.25) which was very tasty. the sausage was specially flavored...

I almost don't want to write anything because I like that I don't have to wait too long to be seated. Everything I have had is wonderful! My family and friends are always open to going here.

I love this place, the pancakes are what you go for the amount of food is overwhelming but good My new favorite and don't be scared by the size is the baby dutch pancakes, make sure to squeeze that lemon on top. It is a very crowded restaurant but the service is great and you don't wait to long.

I usually eat at the DTC location of OPH, but I've been here before. The Swedish pancakes with lingonberries is the dish I recommend, but I was hungry for eggs yesterday (9/24/16) and ordered Mary's Eggs Benedict. This dish is overpriced, and I ended up with diarrhea, presumably from the red potatoes that accompanied the eggs. The service was very... More

A bit disappointed in the Apple Pancake. Not light and fluffy, rather under cooked and eggy-gelatin-like in the middle. The corned beef hash was very good. Service was just okay too. My husband had to get up to get his own coffee refill.

Hello and thank you for your feedback. I wish we could have had the opportunity to make your Apple Pancake the way it should have been. I'm glad the Hash was enjoyable and yet the service needed room for improvement. Your comments will help us take steps towards making changes to provide everyone a better experience in the future. Thanks... More

You'll never find a better breakfast. Excellent wait staff and food to die for. The thick sliced bacon must be specially cut for them and the sourdiough pancakes are the best I've ever had, yes, even in Alaska. Bacon cooked perfectly!

We have a franchise at home but the bacon was meaty and thick and had better pancakes then ours at home. The pecan waffle wasn't bad either! We cleaned our plates...good for a quick breakfast/brunch.
