Good for late night cravings

The other night my friends and I had a craving for pancakes. We got there around 11 and although there was no one there we waited for a hostess to come serve us. When we got seated we had to wait what seemed like a long time for our food, again since no one was there. Everyone enjoyed their food... read more

I walked in here and was waiting about15 minutes by the front to be seated. I decided to go wash my hands first. As I walked through the restaurant I got really turned off by how dirty everything was. The bathroom was nasty. When I was done I got up front and still no one was there. There was a... More

This used to be a great IHOP, but in the past two years it has taken a dramatic downhill slide. We keep hoping that the poor quality is merely a temporary fluke, but it seems to be here to stay. On our last five visits, here's what we experienced: sour, spoiled, orange juice, dried out, crumbly pancakes, cold waffles, [where... More

Service was great. They were very nice when we wanted to change to a table by the window. A bit hard to get in and out of due to the traffic on Rt 3 but later discovered a back entrance.

the pancakes are great, but it takes forever for the food to be ready. there are many options, but usually, the specials are the best. I think the price is ok, it could be better, although, again, it is not like they aren't the "international house of pancakes". I had to wait an hour for my food to be ready,... More

My experience to this IHOP was average. The menu is the one you would expect. The service was good. However, the cleanliness of the place leaves a lot to be desired. The floor did not look clean, nor the toilets. There was something about the atmosphere of the restaurant that was not right. Difficult to pin point. I would not... More

Walked out after finding a cockroach crawling on my sons back at the booth! Had just ordered the drinks. Informed owner. Hopefully they take care of issue although I won't be retuning!
