What a great breakfast and awesome service. I normally prefer healthier fare, but if you are looking for IHOP this is really a step above. The service is way better than I've experienced at restaurants far more expensive with far better food.

Fast service, good food.

We were on our way to a job, the service was pretty fast and the food was pretty good. The only thing I didn't like is the vanilla flavoring in the pancakes, but a great experience all around.

well, if you like great food, and great service, this is the place to go for breakfast. I had blueberry pancakes with eggs and turkey sausage. Wow, was it great. The portions were substantial and even though the prices were a bit high, it was worth every penny. Don't hesitate to go!

Arrived and were 4th in line waiting. Got seated within 5 minutes. Large portions and fast service. A lot of regulars so you know it's good. I had an omelette and my wife had a short stack of Apple cinnamon pancakes. Good coffee and friendly staff. Would definitely stop in again!

#1-- if possible, ask for Christina as your waitress. #2-- but since she's so awesome, don't fret if she's swamped and you get another server. They're all good. #3-- If you're a SENIOR, find the senior section of the menu. Great meals for a great price. #4-- if you like thick Texas toast, make sure you request it as your... More

Best breakfast ever! Our family visited this restaurant over the Fourth of July weekend. They were extremely busy and I figured we'd have a long wait. Not so. Our orders were taken quickly and our food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. We were amazed at how HUGE the breakfast platters were. Each of us ordered a different entree,... More

Was told to get breakfast at Sophia's from hotel clerk. She knew what she was talking about. Better food than IHOP and better priced. If anything, be ready to face the temptation to overeat. My wife and I fixed this by splitting an omelette meal and both left full. The only bad thing is their hours. Sophia's is only open... More

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch today and the food was mediocre at best. My wife ordered a ham and cheese sandwich with a Rice Cream soup that according to her tasted like milk with rice and salt. I ordered pork chops with mash potatoes and vegetables. The dish I was served had the lousiest looking green beans and... More

We had a wonderful breakfast with a regular - a cousin we were visiting - who loves the place and the staff and we could see why. Tasty food, ample portions, great coffee, friendly folks throughout! Returned again with him and we wish they had franchises on the East Coast!
