We tried to eat a Valentine’s Day breakfast prior to the start of my work day. We arrived around 6:05 am only to see a group of people (servers and staff, apparently) standing outside the locked door. Soon after, someone arrived with a key and let the group of employees in. We got out of our vehicle, went to the... More

Horrible horrible service. Half our table got their food 30 min after the other half. I never got my eggs. Asked to speak to the manager and a very young timid lady came out with a deer in the headlights look. Didn't know what to say... Will not return. EVER.

Nothing spectacular about this one, nothing out of the ordinary, the food was average, nothing to brag about, i was a bit upset over being ignored when i went in. One of them told me someone would be with me in a minute and it was only after another couple came in that they decided to notice i was still... More

on the scale of similar breakfast places, this one gets a 5. Was here on a wednesday morning, for a breakfast meeting. Alex, our server, was prompt and attentive. He was quick to get our drink orders and returned quickly when we were ready to order. Food was spot on in terms of how it was ordered and prepared. He... More

Been to a few IHOP's, this one was middle of the road, nothing really stood out. The service was average. Was with a party of 5 and some of the food had to go back to get corrected. Server was friendly. Place seemed clean. Food was good, typical IHOP. The pancakes are some of the best and you can't get... More

Service at the Oak Ridge IHOP is almost always good. We've been there several times over the years and everyone is always friendly and our meals and drinks are served in a timely and efficient manner. If you like pancakes with lots of options, this is the place to go. If you like other items for breakfast, like bacon or... More

Good food. Decent breakfast menu. The service could be better. Our wait time for a group of 8 was well beyond one hour. We stayed until served, but would have been better off somewhere else on this day!

Nothing spectacular about this one. The service was good but the food wasn't the greatest. Not very hot when it was brought out and the hash browns were greasy.

Another American institution that you have to visit. We did and felt a little "Meh". The server was polite and helpful but the food lacked any "umpf!" The pancakes, the main selling point and attraction of this place, didn't really do it for me. Tasted as if they were a little undercooked with no real flavour unless they were covered... More

I went in for an early morning breakfast. I went out to get my jacket because it was colder inside than it was outside at 7 in the morning. I said something to the server about how cold it was and that my entire breakfast was cold before I could even eat it. He just shrugged his shoulders as if... More
