We visited on A Sunday morning. The table they took us to was sticky to start off with. Secondly the service was not good we waited at least ten minutes for service. The food did not have any flavor either.

Who doesn't love pancakes!?! I love ihop's pancakes! It's one of my favorite stops for breakfast. Our son loved loved loved the cupcake pancakes with sprinkles! I'd stop again, but I will say, this location could use a bathroom remodel.

Waitress brought a dirty cup. Replaced it .The whole place looked dirty....especially the booth seats. Didn't look like they were ever cleaned! Syrup containers were stuck solid in the holder. Cold toast. AVOID THIS PLACE...we will!

I took comfort here for breakfast after staying in a neighboring, BAD hotel. The service was excellent, and it was a good breakfast with excellent service.
