The food is adequate. Sometime service is very slow as the restaurant can be very busy. A good family restaurant.

I have been to this restaurant several times in the past 3 years. I always get bad service. I was there over the weekend. It took a long time to get our food. The people that were sitting next to us waited 45 minutes for their food. They went to the front counter to see what was going on. I... More

I never get tired of the consistently good food and service here. The veggie omelets and hearty grain pancakes are my personal favorites.

As usual, the fare on offer at IHOP was up to it's usual standard. The sandwiches, chicken strips and the pancakes particularly cannot be beaten for price.

Personally I prefer waffles and French toast over pancakes. The new menu has a Split Decision option with eggs, bacon and sausage plus French toast and pancakes. The French toast is thick, crispy and fluffy. Took the pancakes home for late night treat. This restaurant is next to the 10 and Costco, so it is very busy on the weekends.... More

We really enjoyed our breakfast before leaving area to go home. Friendly staff and good hearty food. Our server made many great suggestions and was very helpful. The coffee was fresh and hot.

I prefer it w/cheddar though. My husband gets the sampler plate and always enjoys the variety and quantity of food. We come here bcuz it's close... More

This was convenient to our hotel so we gave it a shot. We usually do Denny's for pan cakes and the grand slam. The service was great, the food quite good and fair priced. Will try them again.

Typical chain restaurant. You know what your getting before you enter the door ~ same ol' same! So really it is the service that is important here. And it is & has been every time ~ crappy! Slow, impersonal, the server doesn't look at you when taking your order and is sure not to make eye contact the rest of... More
