“It was food, but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We stopped in for a late night dinner. The food was okay, but nothing exceptional. This was our first visit to an IHOP, but our daughter always wanted to try it. She ended up eating less than half of her pancakes. Service was good, but the food seemed pricey for what we had. Wouldn't likely choose this again.

Our waiter was very friendly and very good at attending to our needs. The food was very good and pricing was decent. Very clean and welcoming atmosphere as well.

“Cold Restaurant, Cold Food, Bad Pancakes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Our visit to this IHOP was less than desirable. While the service was great, the food was mediocre to bad. The buttermilk pancakes, their hallmark dish, were chewy and cold. The eggs were very flavorless. We would not return.

“I love pancakes - and these hit the spot!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The food and pancakes are always consistent and delicious. The building also looks a lot better inside and out since it was recently remodeled. However, the service is not consistent. A lot of times our servers will leave us hanging waiting on things and be very inattentive. There is usually a wait on the weekend mornings so be aware of that.

Great fast service. Great value for a family on a budget. Skip McDonalds, and eat here.
