The staff is the best aspect of this mediocre restaurant, but sadly, there's no overcoming the mediocre high-calorie food and lackluster location of this chain restaurant. The only reason to go here is if you have a loved one at St. John's hospital or have...More

Had a melanoma excised from my back recently in a nearby medical office, and went to iHop to celebrate the finish of it. Everything is kind of mediocre, from the service to the food, but it tastes and feels great after a surgery!

Fast service and great tasting food. Pancakes are delicious and reasonably priced. I've eaten at other IHOPs and this is of the usual good standard.

Typical IHOP. Clean. Friendly staff. Balloon guy was entertaining for kiddos. Kind of expensive for breakfast food.

You can enjoy IHOP classic pancake dishes as well as healthy options. Calories are listed for convenience. They will customize dishes to your taste too. A good option for families and budget-minded diners who like to eat.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
