The renovations very much improved the atmosphere, comfort, and sizer of the restaurant. They have a very good and varied menu with everything from breakfast, to lunch, to dinner items. The food is generally quite good, as well as reasonable and the service is also very good.

I love the omelets and the fact that the cooks will make it the way you enjoy it most. The atmosphere welcomes a diversified group of people from all walks of life.

Open 24 hours! We came into town for the David Sedaris show at the Koger Center. After the show, nothing was open in the area. Everything seemed to close at 10pm. We stumbled across the IHOP.

Prepare to Share!! I ordered the omelet with ALL THE MEAT! This thing had Ham, Bacon Roast Beef and GOD knows what else. It was fantastic; didn't need any sides. Near USC campus, the place is always busy, but this doesn't slow down service. Great place for an early/ or late breakfast; depends on YOUR clock.
