It's an IHOP "express" - more a fastfood than breakfast thing. But there is no other IHOP in the center of San Diego. Probably they will Start one soon!?!?

Very nice place as for usual american restaurants. Service is appropriate, fast and friendly. Food is very tasty and nice drinks, huge selection of pancakes and salads. It is really good place for unaccustomed european visitor.

The staff here was fantastic. Seated right away, ordered and received hot fresh food. Loved the waffles and eggs. Very clean IHOP with service oriented staff.

Ihops are awesome. This one is no exception, brilliant prices for brilliant food, just don't expect to fit in much after eating here! Huge portions Ofcourse.. Pretty average service, but I don't think it's really about that when you go here...

I had to wait at least 20 minutes to get a table but it was worth waiting for those pancakes. I don't know if it was the hunger or the pancakes were really good. Btw early sunday mornings its really packed

The service was less than stellar, but what can one expect at an Ihop. The food was typical, no quality concerns, but it did not stand out. The best part is you don't have to pay to park and there seemed to be ample parking for the restaurant which can be a challenge in Pacific Beach.

We visited the IHOP on Balboa Ave 92111 and we have been there many times. Always great service and the wait time for food is usually very short...Last night we had one of the same servers as we've had before and she is excellent....the food was great and the value was good.. We will continue to go to this location... More
