My husband and I used to go here at least once a week usually on Sat if I had a day off. The food was always good and we always had the same server who was very friendly. We went there in 2010. I loved the pancakes and the way my eggs were prepared.

When you go here, do not expect good service, sorry. If you happen to get a nice waitress, consider yourself lucky and tip her as she deserves. The hostesses are grumpy - not always outright rude but just short and blah, not welcoming at all. The place is usually very cramped and you wait forever. So, like I said, don't... More

My daughter and me always said let's stop in this IHOP, Because it was in walking distance of my house. Service was bad, servers were some what rude and not very attentive We felt out of place, maybe we are not by our nature, Loud and Rude! Food was just Ok, for breakfast , But Really Cold Toast

This is the original IHOP in Trenton, They always have a smile on their faces and the food is better than other IHOP's in the region. I would say that is because the cooks here care about what is being served to the customer. The others just throw together slob and dump it on your table, you won't get that... More

My fiancee and I decided to try this place after the renovation...very greasy food. We will not return! Of course, if you like this style, I'm sure it is fine. Service was excellent!

The IHOP is just one big room with booths on the outside ad long cafeteria tables in the middle. It is super crowded and the atmosphere is awkward. Our table was covered in syrup and crumbs when we were seated. The poor wait staff have to deal with these cramped walking spaces and an odd kitchen set up that's like... More

During both visits, he food was okay and the service was good, but the coffee was like cigarette ash that had been filtered through used toilet water. How can they not know or care, and how can other people drink it? Either they all lack a discerning palate or management doesn't drink coffee, and nobody's brave enough to complain. I... More

This IHOP, which is actually in Ewing, NJ, not Trenton, had been closed for at least a year and reopened in July. We enjoyed it in the past and were delighted to find it was like we remembered. Service was excellent and efficient. Dinners were tasty. Prices were so/so. All in all, a good experience, worth repeating.
