The pancakes are delicious here...the wait is usually long to get a table but it's worth it because the food is just that good. If your looking for an early meal this is your place....drive right past IHOP and go here.

We were seated after15 minutes, kids enjoyed the toys the restaurant had available while we waited. We were greeted very quickly by a friendly waitress. Beware, peanut oil is used... More

This is a classic breakfast place where the menu is pretty much limited to breakfast type items such as crepes, pancakes, eggs and omelettes. While limited, what they do do they do very, very well. They pride themselves on using fresh, quality ingredients and making almost everything from scratch. The menu offers almost every imaginable classic breakfast item including "exotic"... More

My husband and I used to go once a week (at least) to OPH because it is the best place for breakfast/brunch in the West County area. Great service, although the lines are very long. I recommend downloading the NoWait app to start "standing" in line before you even leave the house. Once seated, we are greeted by very kind... More

With the positive reviews from community people, we decided to give this a try. Later in the morning there was no wait so we were seated and met by very nice staff. We ordered an omelette, which was very large and tasted OK and it came with three pancakes the other person ordered the three pack. For the price that... More

This is a BUSY place so you should use the No Wait App if you come on a weekend! Parking is plentiful and they have complementary coffee if have to wait or don't have the no wait app- ha! Service is fast and very good. The orange juice tasted liked they just squeezed it- yum! Great place and food!

The food is good, but they are seriously over priced for eggs, waffles, pancakes, etc. I would not pay a premium again for this place...the food is not that good!

On a Saturday morning in February 2017 my wife and I treated our daughter and her family an unforgettable breakfast at The Original Pancake Hose in Chesterfield, MO. I first discovered the OPH while working in Indianapolis and fell in love with the place. When the one in Chesterfield, MO, a little closer to home, opened up a few years... More
