I frequently meet friends on Saturday morning at this IHOP. I like the senior menu. I can get a good breakfast with a reasonable portion size for a reasonable price. Most other restaurants offer an oversized portion of food at a high price. I also like that the waitress brings a carafe of coffee to the table so I can... More

Ate dinner tonight and food was ok, but the cleanliness and upkeep was terrible. Holes in the seats, trash on the floor, trash inside the booths, etc. Won't eat there again.

It is hard to tell your server that the burger my husband ordered was rare when he never returned to the table. Or that my ham was burnt. How the heck do you burn ham?? The smiley face on my grand daughters pancakes wasn't even a smiley face. It was more or a frown but she didn't care. Every ones... More

I take an elderly lady shopping every Wednesday then stop for pancakes afterwards. We decided to stop here on this day. The restaurant was not very busy but still took 15 minutes to be seated. The food was mediocre, service was decent, that's about it.

Greeted with wonderful, friendly, Iowa service! Great breakfast atmosphere. Had the absolute, hands-down best garden omelette that I've ever had at any IHOP. Coffee brewed just right. Service was wonderful. Thank you.

Best Rooty-Tooty Pancakes in town. We often eat here for the funny black waiter that works there. He is quite entertaining.

I got the Chirozo Omelet, it was huge and fluffy and full of goodies, one of the best Omelets I've ever had. Hub had the Tilipia over creamed spinach with mashed potatoes and a salad (I have him my fruit cup, which was overflowing with fresh fruit). A wonderful meal, a great Waitress, always attentive. Relaxing atmosphere. We'll be back... More

Dad and I always stop and get breakfast whenever we go out running errands. It is so pleasant between 10 to 11 am. Nice and quiet but still moderately busy. The Denver Omelette is good as are the traditional eggs, bacon, toast combos. As always, we get the 3 stack of buttermilk pancakes as the "side dish" served with warm... More

I have always loved IHOP, but the service was extra friendly and we didn't wait long for our food. Refills on drinks just appeared and the portions were to large to finish.
