You don't find many of the original IHOP's any more. The food here was average / good and the wait staff was excellent. I would return again.

Good food. Unfriendly servers. We used to go frequently. We do like the food. At Dennys we get awesome service from the waitresses and that keeps us coming back there. We gave up on getting good service from IHOP at least in Merriam.

Our waiter was very pleasant. She kept our coffee, water and tea refilled and stopped often to make sure that we had everything that we needed. This was an older building, but it was clean and the food was delicious! We would stop here again!

Great place for blueberry pancakes. My kids love going there before heading out for a day at the Ren Fest near the old Sandstone Theatre. Fun anytime!

Tried the smallest burger they had, which was just fine. The place feels cozy and the service was ok.
