No. Don't go.

We walked in, the Asst. Manager was helping a lady make a to-go order. Remember this.

We get seated. Our waitress apparently has a facial condition that impedes her ability to smile or otherwise seem pleasant. We order, simple stuff, breakfast stuff, pancake stuff. After all, IHOP is known for breakfast, for pancakes. (It's in their NAME, for crissakes!)

ONE HALF HOUR LATER, we're finally served. In that half hour, I watched the shelf (where the completed orders wait) sit, COMPLETELY FULL OF ORDER for 10 minutes. (See photo uploaded with this review) No one picked up anything, but more orders came in. What the heck? Finally our waitress decides to pay a visit to the pickup station, and lo and behold, OUR order was one of the ones sitting there. (if they sat any longer, they would have had to pay rent!)

The food was not fully warm, didn't feel fresh, and really... wasn't worth our money. The Asst. Manager was too concerned with manning the front area when he should have been in that kitchen reaming his staff for being slow as frozen snails. He even walked into the kitchen to bark out an order... why didn't he get upset at all the orders NOT going out?

We paid and left. Remember that lady at the beginning of this story? Yes, she was STILL THERE, trying to get her order. Seems they messed up her to-go. Sheesh. Corporate needs to secretly visit this location, then close it and burn it to the ground.

Excellent portions. Excellent breakfast any time of the day. Get there early in the morning cause they do get busy. YUM!

This was on par with other IHOP's. Slow service - Sat 10 minutes before the waitress even came to the table. The waffle was cold, eggs - cold, paper thin bacon, weak coffee with fake cream. Considering all of the other places for breakfast, we will not be back. spending twice the price for below par food and service is not what I was looking for.,

We visited IHOP after coming back from our trip to Canada. What a mistake. It was disgusting. The food was stone cold when it was brought to our table. It was not even eatable. The service was terrible too, when we complained no one even seemed to care. I would not recommend this place to anyone ever!

We needed to find a take out restaurant close to the Microtel in Roseville. IHOP was about a 2 or 3 minute walk, so that was ideal. We arrived there on a Saturday around 5:30 PM and the restaurant was only about one quarter full. Our order was for a bacon cheeseburger and salad, chicken griller sandwich and salad, and stuffed crepes. It was ready in 10 minutes, and there was so much food that I couldn't finish the rest (that hardly ever happens). This was the first time we've been to IHOP for dinner. I highly recommend IHOP for both breakfast and dinner meals.
