We arrived for post-game dinner about 01:00 am. The people working at this time were extremely friendly and provided very good service. I had the all-meat omelet for dinner/breakfast. It came with your choice of potatoes or toast. The omelet tasted great. The restaurant was clean and very busy for that time of night.

Ever since the first time of trying IHOP's chicken, mushroom, spinach crepes w/ hollandaise sauce, I haven't been able to order anything else from the menu. The manager came over & asked how everything was. Then went to the other patrons, inquiring as well. That was reassuring as a customer. The food was served hot & quick! & I will... More

We dined with our son, daughter-in-law, and 8 month grandson. Seating and service was fast. The food was delicious. Everything was clean and the environment very conducive to pleasant dining, even on a very crowded mid-morning Sunday. Loved it!

Since we were staying in a hotel that didn't serve breakfast, i was glad IHOP was nearby. We were seated quickly and our waitress was friendly. The pumpkins pancakes I got were very good with the butter pecan syrup I added. The egg was cooked as ordered. I didn't care for the sausage,though. The coffee was good, as usual. For... More

The food was just OK, typical of most IHOPs. I noticed that my table was still sticky from a previous customer. The food was hot and the way I ordered. But still, it's IHOP people! Nuthin' fabulous...just a good, hot breakfast at a sticky table.

My family had dinner at IHOP last night and we were a bit disappointed. The service was very slow and the food was just ok. My daughter's order was completely wrong but they corrected it. Two members of our family were there last week and it was great, so we had high hopes when we arrived.

We had a large party. Servers were great! Food was great! Checkout was easy considering we had a large party. Will definitely eat there again. You must try the red velvet pancakes!
