“Chain Gang”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Typical chain restaurant. You know what your getting before you enter the door ~ same ol' same! So really it is the service that is important here. And it is & has been every time ~ crappy! Slow, impersonal, the server doesn't look at you when taking your order and is sure not to make eye contact the rest of your visit.
they are quick to clear away plates asking ARE YOU DONE? Believe me I WILL TELL YOU WHEN I AM DONE!!!
Portions are nice size we usually share a plate & add a side. And the price of coffee ~ seriously!!
~ they offer a senior discount, unless you order from the senior menu. Come on anyone can order from the senior menu so where's the discount??

“Standard IHOP Food & Standard Service”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

My wife and I ate here with friends while visiting in Rancho Mirage. Standard menu, average service. What was to be warm was cold. Waitress was indifferent and just took orders and delivered what was prepared by the cooks.

“Can't go wrong here for breakfast”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Family and I were spending vacation time in Palm Desert and had breakfast here. The welcoming familiar atmosphere in iHop was nice given an unfamiliar city. We also had our usual breakfast favorites here and right away felt at home and a great start to our vacation.

“Terrible Food & Service”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Have tried twice to report this awful excuse for an IHOP (keeps showing up as Swill Donunts) Not busy, terrible service, nearly cold food, very dirty coffee cup. We will NOT be back.
