If you want breakfast, do NOT go here! Waited an hour (or more) on our order and it not only arrived COLD, but horribly presented and just NASTY...save yourself a headache, the manager really is oblivious to the restaurants issues...

I haven't been to an IHOP in a while, but it looks like the service has gone to pot - at least at this one. My wife and I visited this IHOP in Lake Charles last night after a concert at the Golden Nugget and......More

Banana nut pancakes we’re great! Service was good but For a Friday it was pretty empty. Seem to always have trouble finding Cooks. If u like I hop food it will do the trick. But u will get a 15% AARP Discount at Denny’s!!!

Visited twice on 12-6-2017, where twice = first & last time. The place was dark, dismal & cold. Although not crowded, the food took a really long time. The employees said that they were not allowed to adjust the thermostat!

Food is always correct and warm when ordering from drive thru. The wait time is too long when dining in especially on a sunday morning. Food is good. Has a lot of variety more than waffle house.

We enjoy breakfast on the weekends and occasional dinner. But seems last three times we went there we had to wait forever to get waited on. Last chance we gave them, we sat and then proceeded to wait for 15 minutes and nobody even bothered...More

When you have to wait 30-45 minutes because the "kitchen needs to catch up" sounds like a management problem. A true owner would know the rush times. Inept!!

It took forever to serve my meal and I finally left before they did - The restaurant wasn't that busy and the manager seemed indifferent to my problem

I love to go here for any meal. The service is always friendly and helpful. The food is great. You can have breakfast, lunch or dinner and enjoy any of them.

We stopped for a bite to eat during the heavy rain storm. Restaurant was practically empty. Service was very good, but food prep took a bit long for only having about six customers in the restaurant. Meal was very tasty for all of us. Helpful...More
