Lazy breakfast on Galveston seawall

OK, IHOP isn't fine cuisine. It is an American tradition (food snobs, stand back). IHOP on the seawall is fun, and the food is standard comfort fare. I do like the ham-steak and egg breakfast - so sue me. Thick ham slices on the steel griddle are awesome, and some good flapjacks with real (is... read more

The service here is amazing! People are mad because there is a long wait prior to eating, THAT IS BECAUSE THE FOOD AND SERVICE IS GREAT! I recommend getting there before 8 am, otherwise, the wait increases exponentially! Extremely limited parking, wait time is easily 1-1.5 hours between 9 am and 11 am. GET A LANDRY'S CARD!!

We were told the wait was 25-30 minutes but always expect it will be a little longer. We finally went up and asked after 50 minutes because we noticed people who came in later were being seated. The hostess lied to me and told me her manager took the list but she would check on it. She never said another... More

My husband and I had a delicious breakfast with our grandchildren. The restaurant staff was friendly. The service was good and the food was tasty. We enjoyed our meal. They were very accommodating to our grandchildren.

We wanted seafood, but the kids wanted pancakes for dinner so we caved. We were actually very happy we did, as this place was not packed at all compared to the other spots we passed up. Service was wonderful, no wait to sit, food came out quickly and was wonderful and hot. We got a table facing the Seawall/Ocean which... More

I always visit restaurants on SeaWall Blvd. for the scenery. IHOP did not disappoint me. I was visiting for a Getaway weekend and my tastebuds were screaming for pancakes. Driving around and found IHOP, i was ecstatic. I new of IHOP in Houston so I was hoping this island location was just as good and they are. They did job... More

We stopped eating at IHOP because we thought the quality had home downhill. However, we had no other choices for a late breakfast so we gave this one a try. The food was good and the service quick. There was also a nice view of the gulf.
