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!

The service was poor and the food, pancakes, was nothing to get excited about. In all fairness, it was some time ago that I visited but I vowed to never go back. I haven't.

the food was really good, especially when they have the all you can eat pancakes. The service was decent.

I ordered a ham and cheese omelette. It was probably the worst one I have ever eaten in a restaurant. The ham and cheese were both old. The cheese sprinkled around it was possibly bad. In fact, the omelette was so bad that I should have returned it.
