We always enjoy free pancake day. Money is raised for charity. We had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. The waitresses were very busy, but ours did a great job. We also got an order of bacon and sausage to go with our short stack of pancakes. The pancakes are fluffy and delicious. The bacon was ordered crispy,... More

Nice staff, food Not so much. Very old original ,small,not clean, in need of complete overhaul.. nothing like some of the newer ones we have been to. Had French taste, can't screw that up. Wife had vegie omelet, did not finish it. Big chunks of mushroom and broccoli, unmelted cheese, the worst..

Brenda is the best server I have had service from in IHop in years. The food was great the coffee was fresh & hot and the service was genuine. What else could you ask for??? Next I'm in town I will definitely be back.

We went here for a birthday breakfast and it was delicious. It is your typical IHOP with the same menu. It is an older building. The server, Susan, was very nice. She brought our coffee and even asked if we wanted a cup to go. The double blueberry pancakes had blueberries in the pancakes and blueberries over the top. These... More

When we went in a server was telling another server that she was not taking another table; we should have left then. After we were seated our server came to the table took our order and was totally impersonal. Food was terrible, overdone eggs, underdone pancakes. Would never eat there again.

Stopped here for breakfast before going to USS Yorktown. Small place but a standard IHOP. Husband and I got omelets and son got eggs and bacon and hasbrowns. Husband had pancakes and I had hashbrowns. My omelette had bacon, sausage, and ham. They were not stingy on the meats...which is unusual. I couldn't finish it. Husband had a western omlette....

Your basic IHOP, not the cleanest and could stand some freshening up, booth covers torn..heavy smell of used grease when you walk in, but food was ok, service fair.

We stopped here to have lunch. We ordered a burger and fries and stuffed-french-toast-with-vanilla-and-glazed-strawberries-and-eggs-bacon-and-hashbrown and we liked them. Our waitress was very friendly.
