I am not a big fan of Ihop, but Mom likes it so we went. All our meals were good, crepes, philly cheese steak, turkey club and chicken & spinach salad. We went for lunch on a Monday. Service was good, getting the food a bit slow. Restaurant was clean and waiter friendly.

If you order take out here be prepared to triple check your order. Even after doing so we still wound up without part of our order. They are very nice and definitely made things right for us, so no complaints there. It was just time consuming and bit frustrating to have to deal with the order mishaps. The food was... More

My hubby ordered the Cobb Salad for dinner and I ordered the Chicken Pecan Salad. One worker and 4 talkers. The greens tasted funny and neither one of us ate the entire meal. Three days later we both became ill - we thought it was the stomach flu but it continued and my doctor ordered lab tests and I had... More

Either I had a very different experience than some of the other reviewers, or IHOP has been paying attention to their complaints. Visited in May of 2016, and this IHOP was head and shoulders above most. Restaurant was clean, food preparation and taste was excellent, staff (Tara) was very friendly, and they had a manager "leading from the trenches" so... More

Carpet is grungy and the food seems to have a heavy residue of a cooking spray like PAM. I would recommend growing to Cracker Barrel nearby instead

My husband loves a large breakfast. The food is great and the serve was good. It was busy, but we were able to get right in.

In the past I wrote a bad comment about this place so I felt that I should do an update. We went again last weekend and it was okay. I definitely will only go here when I am accompanied by people that swear that this is a great place. it is a few points at average but teeters on being... More

We stopped here before our last day of travel back home to NH. We certainly were able to go with full bellies and a smile. The food was fantastic, big portions, great value and all the staff was very friendly and accommodating. If I am ever in the area, I would definitely stop again.

IN other locations we have enjoyed IHOP....not this one. The floor seems grungy, the tables often sticky, and the atmosphere in the restaurant a mixture of grease and oil. The food comes out of the kitchen with an oil on it that leads me to believe that the cooks are given a bonus for spraying PAM or cooking spray on... More
