One problem with chains is that they are often too big to have decent quality control and that is evident here. For starters, the pancakes are nowhere near as good as they used to be. They are heavy, tough textured, and taste as though they have inedible fillers. They used to be among the best. Service: The server was nice... More

Service was somewhat slow, food was overpriced. The food was decent, but there are far better options nearby.

Really, it is quite typical. But the service is usually good, the food is not bad...and it's not too expensive.

Our server Bree(and the entire staff), were accommodating and very helpful as my wife and I navigated the menu with our three grand children. a few stacks of pancakes, bacon, eggs and toast and we...

I went here solo for a burger. I ordered the cheese burger with fries and a Pepsi. Service was average at best. The burger was pretty dry and they didn't bring any mayo or mustard, only an empty catsup bottle. I requested more catsup and put some on the burger, but it really didn't help the burger much. I would... More

IHOP always delivers a good breakfast. The service was good. Everything was cooked as ordered and delivered quickly.

As a foreigner, I've always been amazed at the portion sizes in the US and IHOP is no exception. It's hard to get a small meal here but at these prices, it's not worth complaining! We ate here twice, first time having a combo - two eggs, bacon and hash brown with two pancakes. I opted for the white chocolate... More

We stayed at the Vagabond Inn next door - IHOP was convenient for breakfast. We took forever to choose from the menu - our waitress was very patient and attentive! Our food arrived and was a massive serve! We struggled to eat it all - but the food was sensational! We definitely did not leave hungry! Thanks IHOP!
