Our experience once again was awful. Very overpriced. Manager and waitress was rude. Food was warm not hot. Took forever to get it. Could not get refills in a timely manner.

So...this ihop was recently shut down for remodel. A friend of mine and my 2 year old decided to give it a shot and went yesterday. So much better over the last few visits we have had. In previous visits, the food was okay, service was not the greatest and cleanliness was quite questionable. We were impressed with the place... More

I have only had the to-go there, the food was good, and at a reasonable price. Been there once, in Jan 2015 to sit down, was all right, but needed a refit then. It's getting one now. Time will tell.

Watched this IHOP go downhill over the past couple of years. Food is good, however it's too bad that the place is messy and run-down. Wish management and /or owners would implement some new rules to spruce the place up and keep it clean for patrons. Servers are usually nice. Prices are typical IHOP. Would love to enjoy this place... More

I give this restaurant one star because of the uncleanliness. Upon last visit, there was food on floor, in the booth and on the window seal. If this wasn't bad enough, AFTER I finished my meal, a roach crawled up the wall beside me! Have not returned and will NOT return.

This place was the fastest Ihop I've ever eaten in. Went in on a Fathers Day Sunday morning at 10:55 am and the lobby was full, and the eating area, we stood around, and things really started moving. Groups of five or more, were moved in and out. I couldn't believe it. We were two and when we were seated... More

The place seems dirty and nasty but the food tastes good, especially the omeletes! While we were waiting in line, the cook came to us and showed all the happiness typical from Louisiana. He sang, he danced, he laughed... Great additional perk!

I am a positive person so to write a bad review it has to be bad. Corporate ihop needs to spend some time here . Our food was late and cold. When the waitress set it down she said my plate was hot - I could tell by the cold gravy it was not. Last time for ihop unless new... More

I love IHOP food and everything that is offered on the menu. But the managers Rob and Lisa don't seem to know how to run this franchise restaurant to ensure customers satisfaction. Everytine we come here it is always the long wait.. Excuse that kitchen could not handle the loads. We have to sit in the lobby for nearly half... More
