IHOP is getting to be so expensive you can't afford to take your family there. They keep coming up with new concoctions. They should just stick to there old menu it was much better and much family oriented. You always have to wait so long to get in and there is not enough space for people to waite.

We usually have a great time dining out here quickly, Hot Food, and Great Service...this time, not so much. Service was painfully slow....it took us 30 minutes to get our beverages, and an hour to get our food. Thankfully Mine came out steaming hot, but my mother and sister had cold, hard, pancakes...the only good part was that they were... More

We've always been satisfied when dining at an IHOP, that is until we visited the Dixwell Ave facility. The service was poor and our orders were incorrect. My daughter specifically asked that no butter be served on her pancakes, order came with enough butter for two servings. I asked for very well done bacon, the bacon was almost raw when... More

The best part about this ihop was the friendliness of the host and server Kathleen. The food was okay my wife got a burger, my daughter got a chocolate chip pancake, and my son and I got chicken and waffles which we're OK just a little disappointing. They were chicken tenders on the waffles, I was expecting real chicken pieces.... More

March 1, 2015. I drove to the Wallingford IHOP for some dinner. When I get there the doors were locked. They closed the kitchen due to literally a few inches of snow! When I asked one of the employees about the closure, she was EXTREMELY rude...like "I might spit in your food" rude. Then the shift manager, Pamela, intervened. Pamela... More
