“Always Excellent Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Our server was more than pleasant, I wished I remembered her name, it was late late in the evening and she could not have been more exceptional late at night and service and courteousness was from start to finish!!!

“Always reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

IHOP is always a reliable option. The prices are always fair and a large menu to choose from. We come here at least once a month if not more and the service has always been great.

The only downfall would be this location gets extremely busy on the weekends for breakfast\brunch service but with limited options in the area you have to expect it.

“Pretty good for the brand name.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We have visited three or four times over the last 12 months. Our most recent visit was pretty typical and represents this particular restaurant's performance. We typically go for breakfast, along with the herds of other weekenders, but we try to arrive a bit earlier than the masses. Having said that, even when this store is busy, you may expect to be seated quickly and attended to promptly. Kudos to the management and staff that pay attention :). We also normally order with a couple of additions or modifications, just because we like spinach instead of 'shrooms, or no bell peppers or some other minor modification to the canned recipes. In our experience, they got it right each time, the omelets are light and fluffy, the portions are generous and the food is served hot. Can't fault the quality, as it's IHOP, but for the price, we've found this to be one of the better ones out there.

“Always reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

It;s really hard to mess up IHOP. This place is always clean and we always have had great service here. There can be quite a bit of a wait at times, especially on the weekends but that is expected with all breakfast places. Good for a family stop, as I said its hard to screw up pancakes.

“Wonderful Pancakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

I love IHOP and I really liked the walnut pancakes. They were fabulous... hot, steaming, dripping real butter. Plenty of different types of syrup. Great breakfast.
