Heading home from a basketball game and wanted to sit down but eat quick. IHOP was on the way so we stopped. The last time I hate at a IHOP it was dirty, but it was elsewhere so we gave it a chance. There were less than 10 tables with customers and figured it shouldn't be long. Walked in and... More

The place was busy, but not crazy busy. The waitress was horrible #140, attitude, just short of rude and charged us for an additional coffee we did not get. The ticket times for food coming out we extremely poor, and the food was not real hot, nor was it anything exciting, so I would have to drive bye this IHOP.

Looking for a place for lunch we stumbled on this Ihop. We have 2 Ihop we visit when we want pancakes or breakfast lunch. This is the first time that ordered a burger instead of breakfast. My wife ordered french toast, eggs, hash browns. I ordered one of the specialty burger with a side salad. The waitress took time out... More

The food was served hot and timely. It was your average breakfast selection. The waitress was friendly. The coffee was great.

This restaurant goes in phases. Right now they do not have staff that seems to really care. The silverware was dirty. The coffee pot was never full. The waitress didn't seem to care much. The other customers treated Sunday morning breakfast like they were at a bar, and no one asked them to curb their language, or at least speak... More

Our server Ashley was amazing and the service was quick, polite and attentive. The food quality, not so good 😞. Now maybe because I haven't been to an IHOP in awhile and my nostalgic memories are a lot better than reality or maybe the cooks had an off day. But I did leave with a lighter wallet and a little...

Service okay at best. Food was cold. Had to track down waitress. Customers behind us were complaining as they were waiting too long for their food. There. Has to be a better place in this town for breakfast. Don't recommend this place.

What I expect from IHOP. I drive further to go to the Punta Gorda location. They're friendlier and their food always comes out better than the Port Charlotte location.

We have been in IHOP's in many places and this one just isn't as good as the others. Our food sat under the warming lights for too long then the waitress had to remind them to add the bacon to the burger. The burger was cool and the bottom bun was soaked with grease from sitting. Service was fair.

If you have ever eaten at an IHOP - then you know what you will get at this one in Punta Gorda. Not the most modern, it still reminds me of the IHOPs of the past. But the pancakes are great and the service excellent and friendly
