This was the worst experience I ever had at Ihop. Myself and husband and our three kids were seated after; looking at our menus for at least 20 minutes I had to get up to look for our server she took our order which did not get to the back for another 30 more minutes then after seeing three tables...

We had to wait over an hour for our food. The pancakes were cold, the burger was dry. So disappointing.

This is not your typical IHOP. We were seated quickly enough and ordered in a timely manner. Then we waited and waited and waited. Took 35-40 minutes to get food. Never offered a refill on our drinks. Food was close to room temp. Flavor was really good though. Restroom had an slight aroma of raw sewerage. I would not recommend... More

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.
