Just after our food was served a cockroach walked across our table! Did eat some of the meal in a hurry, but I would not go back. The waiter was very kind about it and reduced our bill, but I still wouldn't eat there again.

I love IHOP, but this location was not satisfying. The server was nice and took care of our needs, but my complaints are about the food. It's not as hearty as it should be. I ordered tomato and onion omelet with extra tomatoes. What I got was an onion omelet with tomatoes garnished on top! The omelet was so dry... More

So I wanted to eat breakfast and I decided to go to IHOP. I havent been in a couple of years so I thought I would give it another shot. The food was as expected and everything came out quick. I had two eggs over medium, sausage, toast, hash browns and coffee. Good service and I will return, very clean... More

I've been here twice now with large groups, right after church. The place is buzzing but even with the crowds they can get you seated in 20 minutes. I'm talking about line out the door type of crowds. The service is excellent, fast, and they gladly handle separate checks. Our most recent visit started with my asking for a table... More

We have eaten at this IHOP several times, including twice last week and we have always had a good time. Servers are friendly, food is good and it's extremely convenient. French toast is my go to and never disappoints. Thank you!

It's hard to believe that in this day and age there are cafes without Wireless access however until just recently IHOP was one of these. I've eaten omelets at IHOP many times and consider it "fast food" but the fact that we have a location in Sterling that is open 24 hours AND offers WiFi earns them the "very good"... More

I went to this IHOP twice, just to see if my first experience with the Spinach and mushroom omelet had been a fluke. NO WAY - the second time was even better than the first time. This IHOP makes their omelets with all fresh ingredients. My omelet was stuffed with fresh sliced mushrooms, fresh spinach, diced onion, cheese and a... More

We don't have an iHop close to us, so when we are near one we always stop. Food was awesome! Our waiter was a wee bit odd. All in all not bad.
