I would have been happier going down the road a bit more and having a really good breakfast. This chain has not kept up with their competition. It is just okay for us. Next time in Portland area, we won't be eating here.

I love going here for breakfast. I guarantee you will never leave this place still feeling hungry. I am always stuffed every time I go. I had some raspberry filled waffles that were great. I've also had the chocolate pancakes here and they are delicious! Prices are good, and the waiter we had on our last visit was awesome. Really... More

Grabbed a quick breakfast here. The server was efficient and cordial. This restaurant is located across from the Maine Mall and is much bigger than it looks from the outside.

And you will find LINES...short waits tho unless a Sunday morning. But always a line.... locals have found a fantastic place for a quick, GOOD breakfast. Forget the Crackerbarrel down the road when you have the locally owned (and locally cared about) IHOP. Friendly people and I've never had a bad breakfast. I've been here over a dozen times and...

I've been to this IHOP multiple times because I'm from around the area and every time I love it. Whether I go in just for a cup of coffee or to eat with my friends or family the service is always excellent. I've been bringing my little 8 month old son in since he was a few weeks old and... More

Every time I am in Portland overnight, I have to go to IHOP for breakfast. The food is amazing. I can only speak to the breakfast food, as I have never, yet, ventured to their other food, but I would bet it is amazing. My most recent trip was fantastic like my other visits. We had the option of sitting... More

We ate twice at this IHOP on our recent vacation. It was always busy but the service was prompt and the wait was short. The staff are real people who don't have to conform to a dress code or appearance which was refreshing, but they were always polite and helpful.
