I had their blueberry pancakes with eggs. Cooked to perfection My husband had the eggs and hash brown which were also good. The service was good, attentive but didn't rush you out the door.

Before going here, my husband thought that IHOP was pancakes and not much else. I convinced him that we would have no problem finding something to eat. Our waitress was very helpful, friendly, and efficient. My husband had the bacon cheeseburger and I had the Chicken Florentine Crepes, no onions. The helpings were huge. Since we figured, going to an... More

This IHOP is a family-friendly restaurant. They are extremely quick during their service of breakfast. My waitress even seemed to remember what I typically order for breakfast. If all restaurants were this good, it would be a joy to eat out more without being disappointed. I typically order the Colorado omelette with grilled english muffin. We also get the blueberry...

This large IHOP serves many people quickly. The meal was a good, average breakfast but couples were waited on and served faster than I was the day I was there.

We went here for brunch, had a short wait time as it was very busy. The server was nice and the food came pretty fast considering how busy it was. I would go here again!

We love this IHOP! Comfort food at its best. Nice clean eating areas, and bathrooms. No matter what time of day the food is always good, the wait staff is awesome, so friendly and helpful. I also noticed that there were only men waiters, is this all the time or was it only that day? Either way they were excellent!... More
