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...

Awesome pancakes, fast and friendly service. The restaurant wasn't really as clean as it could've been.

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.

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

You receive a good value for your money at IHOP. We had the usually type of fare, pancakes, waffle and the stuffed french toast was very tasty. The slices of bacon were thin. After initially very attentive, our waitress was MIA and we never were given a bill so we had to ask at the register. Luckily their system tracks... More

This place was nothing special but I wanted to rate it any way because I rely heavily on trip advisor when on vacation. Service was pretty slow considering we were one of 4 tables around sunset. The food was very good, just what'd you'd expect from an Ihop.

Traveling with kids to Sea World is already hectic as it is, and we really did not need the attitude and hostility by our not so friendly IHOP waitress. My husband, two kids, and I were greeted as we entered IHOP (nice). Upon receiving our order we noticed we were given two orders of hash browns, my husband informed the... More
