We had been at a show at the Star Plaza Theatre the night before and when we got up, we thought that we would try the IHOP in Merrillville, as it was not too far from the hotel. They have a great selection of waffles, French toasts and pancakes. If you can't find something on the menu, you can ask,... More

My Mom & I tried Denny's, I-Hop & Bob Evans recently. I would definitely recommend I-Hop as the best! Great friendly, knowledgeable staff. food was very good, fresh, appetizing looking. . We have been back several times.

My favorite breakfast spot. Love the variety of pancakes. Fast service. My husband loves the Philly cheesesteak sandwich.

Stopped in for their $1 short stack for charity. Good cause; good price. Had coupons - wanted more than pancakes. Server railroaded our entrees into something else. Would have cost more and we couldn't use coupons. We caught the error, but they must have remade the order. Took way too long to get served and they weren't busy. Other tables... More

Its IHOP! We slept in late and woke up hungry. Nothing to complain about and nothing to rave about. We received pretty good service, which cant always be found at an IHOP. Fried eggs and omelette served hot and tasted good. Pancakes, light and fluffy. Great place to bring the kids and plenty of parking.

You can't go wrong with IHOP and the only problem with this one is finding the time to go there when there isn't a line. The breakfasts are great and the kids love it. The wait staff always makes my grandkids feel special.
