This is my favorite IHOP in the area. Gets very busy on weekends but even if you see people waiting, it usually ends up being a quick wait. The waitress Catherine is great, she's a sweetheart, I like when we are seated in her section. Food quality is good and cooked fast. All around great IHOP location. Will be back.

Just visited to this location - Good quality food but sitting was to tight! Tables are so small uncomfortable to have a more than 4 sitting on the same table. Convenient to access from all major highway. For some reason I was disappointed in the food at this particular IHOP! One reason I don't go often is their calorie-laden menu.

Who doesn't love breakfast??... We do... and they can make it to suit you... from their new items to the the classics... pancakes, waffles, crepes, French toast in combos or plain!!!... I love the ham and egg melt... sourdough bread is stuffed with scrambled eggs, sliced ham and melted Swiss and American cheeses... Gotta go... I just made myself hungry!!!

The staff was nice and friendly. Was able to accommodate 8 people 4 kids 4 adult very quickly. Egg and bacon where good. Pancakes were also good. Sausages had a weird texture but ok. Overall not a bad experience

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.
