Lets start off with we almost went to ihop but saw the sign peeking out of the corner n since we never been thought we should go "BIG MISTAKE" we walked in and it took a good 5mins for us to be noticed when we said how many were in our party the host started to get he menus together and then turned around and started to walk away. I didn't know if she wanted me to follow her or what, but when she turned back with a rude glare we fallowed. When we were sat it was a booth entirely to small for us and the children. Our waitress came over to get our drinks and we ordered our food. No one told us of the specials (which we saw as we were leaving....) When we got our food it looked as if it had been through a car wreck. My blueberry sauce was sitting on top of my pancake running out of the cup on to my pancake, which also was missing a huge chunk. (I guess the cooks got hungry.) My husband was missing his eggs he got with his waffle that didn't come out until he was done with his meal. Our waitress was no where to be found until the eggs arrived. Someone kept vacuuming around us we felt like we were being rushed out. When our check came, two minutes after my husbands eggs came, we were shocked at how fast the check was brought and how much it was. When we were leaving they locked the doors behind us. If they had served us quicker we would have been out of there quicker. Maybe Wednesdays are just not their days. ihop it is for us.
