IHOP is always a favorite when you have the Grandchildren along. This location is clean, the service was great and the food was tasty. I really love having the coffee carafe right on the table.

First thing in the door the staff ignored us for at least 10 minutes. Then we had to ask for a glass of water 3 times. No check at the end...had to wait another 6 minutes to get it and then the other waitress thought we had just arrived. Bad service!

Service was slow, the food that was ordered without onions arrived with onion, the country omelet was loaded with raw onion. Coffee was not good either. The waitress was doing her best, but was understaffed.

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
