The restaurant was very busy but the waitstaff was always running around! They served us fast and the food was hot and good. The pancakes were delicious and the bacon and eggs were too! A bit hard to find off the highway, use your GPS :)

Wrote an IHOP review last year and thought I would just reiterate here that for breakfast, it cannot be beat. Consistently great egg dishes, awesome pancakes, French toast, waffles, and lots more options. They really will do it your way...just ask. All the servers are awesome...friendly and efficient. You can't miss here. Often, it is crowded, but the venue is... More

We had a great breakfast here. So yummy! Very busy and noisy, but worth it. Great service, great food, BUT, please add vegetarian bacon and sausage options to the menu. That would make all the difference to me!

It was horrible. I had a BLT that came thrown together, burnt bacon and no tomato. I also had a salad prior, but couldn't eat it cause the waitress didn't give out silverware. We had to ask for everything we needed. My husbands pancakes came in burnt and also just thrown together. This meal looked so horrible, sloppy and tasted... More

My family and I were up early after our stay down the road and although I always thought IHOP was a very sad place I decided to give it a try. Prices are great and the food was actually great. The pancakes, were better than anywhere I've had them other than my partner's homemade ones. Very kid friendly. Our server... More

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.

IHOP, it's pretty much the same cross country. I've been to several as I drove from San Diego, CA to Portland, ME, food is good, inexpensive, but the staff here in South Portland, takes the cake. I've been to this location a number of times, and every time I go, I'm always greeted with a peepy host, wait person is... More

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...
