Our kids ask to go here all of the time. They have kid's meal options that you can't get many other places (i.e. pancakes and chicken strips). If you go on kid's night it is actually about the same price as fast food.

Well I have eaten at IHOP three times in a couple years. Wasn't impressed before. Food was greasy...overly greasy. But the worst was the crepes the last time I was there. They were rubbery and just plain gross...

Restaurant was clean, food was very good, hot and plenty of it. Mevlida did a great job. Personality was on even though it was later in the evening and we had 2 tired kids. Orders were right and drinks refilled. Smiles and checking on us. Great job!

I enjoy good pancakes, and IHOP has them. Their omelettes are great as well. I'll go their for a breakfast meal at night. Their plain buttermilk pancakes are just plain perfect.

Our service was good but the food was cold and lousy won't be back. Took our food back and microwaved it but the flavor was lacking

This was actually the first time I had been to an IHOP - so I was a little skeptical. However, I was very wrong. The restaurant was very clean and nice - moreso than I would have expected. Obviously their specialty is pancakes and pretty much every meal comes with them. They were amazing by themselves, let alone the rest... More

My parents and I stopped here for breakfast. The restaurant was not very busy, and we were greeted and seated immediately. Our server was very friendly and attentive, we never had an empty beverage. We all agreed that the food was excellent. I would stop at this location again when I'm passing through Waterloo.

IHOP is one of the trashiest, worst restaurants i have ever been in. The managers that we dealt with were rude, arrogant and pompous. We were threatened to be kicked out for using language that we were accused of using. We have been long standing customers and were not given the benefit of the doubt.
