As a senior, you just can't beat their Senior menu. Plenty of food. Always good. 2 eggs; 2 strips of bacon; and 2 pancakes = $ 5.49. You can't beat that. They call it appropriately "2 + 2 + 2". Service usually great and often outstanding. Great location.

they offered free wifi. the food was hot and ready quickly. service was friendly and quick. since we stayed at the hotel right next door the ihop should offer the guest a discount most other ihops offer that to the guests staying in nearby hotels. but otherwise it was good.

The other night my friends and I had a craving for pancakes. We got there around 11 and although there was no one there we waited for a hostess to come serve us. When we got seated we had to wait what seemed like a long time for our food, again since no one was there. Everyone enjoyed their food... More

This used to be a great IHOP, but in the past two years it has taken a dramatic downhill slide. We keep hoping that the poor quality is merely a temporary fluke, but it seems to be here to stay.

Service was great. They were very nice when we wanted to change to a table by the window. A bit hard to get in and out of due to the traffic on Rt 3 but later discovered a back entrance.
