The food was ok, I did not enjoy my lunch at all. The dressing was terrible, I had to remind the waitress that garlic bread came with my order....she was busy talking about her cookout she was going to have the next day. I'm not going back to this establishment. The bathroom was filthy.

Always enjoy eating at IHOP. It's the only place I can get crepes. Closest one to me in central PA is over 100 miles away

Bad organization, understaffed, slow. Chain should fire managers and replace them with staff that knows how tiring a restaurant.

I went to IHOP on state farm road In Birmingham, Alabama Around 7:40am. They are very slow with seating customers. When I was finally seated, the table was nasty. I asked for the table to be wiped down but everyone acted like they did not have time or cared. I finally gotten another hostess to move me to another table... More

Church group of 12 people went in at 8:30 on a Wednesday night. The server was outstanding and the cook worked hard.. The issue was there was only "1" cook working and the restaurant was fairly busy thus the food late and cold. As a regular visitor I was very disappointed. Management let their workers and customers down by not... More

After being seated and getting our drinks it took forever for the waitress to come and take our order even though there were not many guest present. The food was hot and yummy once we did receive it. The booth seats were nice and comfy and not flat.

We arrived for post-game dinner about 01:00 am. The people working at this time were extremely friendly and provided very good service. I had the all-meat omelet for dinner/breakfast. It came with your choice of potatoes or toast. The omelet tasted great. The restaurant was clean and very busy for that time of night.

Ever since the first time of trying IHOP's chicken, mushroom, spinach crepes w/ hollandaise sauce, I haven't been able to order anything else from the menu. The manager came over & asked how everything was. Then went to the other patrons, inquiring as well. That was reassuring as a customer. The food was served hot & quick! & I will... More

We dined with our son, daughter-in-law, and 8 month grandson. Seating and service was fast. The food was delicious. Everything was clean and the environment very conducive to pleasant dining, even on a very crowded mid-morning Sunday. Loved it!
