It took 30 min to sit us, about half the restaurant was empty. Our server spoke very little English, she would talk to us in Spanish and look at us like we were dumb when we asked what she said. I pointed to what I wanted because of the language barrier. It took about 25 min to get our food.... More

Personally I think it's pretty hard to screw up breakfast of eggs, pancakes, and hash browns. But the managed. Got seated right away, waitress was friendly but it took forever to get our food and were not talking difficult foods to make. My pancakes were cool at best, hash browns were way underdone, not crispy at all. Maybe we were... More

We arrived at our hotel at 7:30 p.m., realizing we were starving. Since we both love breakfast at any time of day, we sauntered across the parking lot to IHOP. The service wasn't prompt, but our server was quite pleasant and apologized for the wait for our food. We both had omelettes, and both were fine, although a bit light... More

Just left after stopping here for breakfast. The only thing that was hot was the coffee. At 8 in the morning in a breakfast place, they were cleaning the washrooms. I had to step over bags of trash to get into the washroom and then nearly slipped on the wet floor. There was no sign stating that the floor was... More

Waitress asked what we ordered 3 times and still got it wrong. What is wrong with writing it down? Food was ok.

Good food. Clean, friendly staff, when traveling I usually like to frequent the local eateries, however it's nice to have a familiar place to go.

We had a great hot meal here. Were looking for something not too heavy and this fit the bill. Staff seemed quite young but did a fine job.

We arrived early - before daylight - and were waited on and served promptly but that was the end of the service. We didn't even receive our check and had to wait 10-15 minuted in the lobby before being "allowed" to pay and leave. They claimed they were hit with an unexpected and unusual rush but it was a Thursday... More
