The restaurant was fairly clean however the silverware was disgustingly dirty. We ended up using plastic fork and knife. Lol. The pumpkin spice pancakes were good but the eggs and potatoes tasted off..

Their menu offers a limited but variety of select foods for each daily meal. Coffee comes in a small pitcher and they have one of the best Belgium Waffles.

Stopped in for breakfast around 10 AM on a recent Saturday. The place was jammed, but we were seated within 20 minutes as promised. Service was prompt, we each had an individual carafe of coffee, and food arrived hot. The menu here is standard for I Hops nationwide, as were prices. We could just as easily be having the same...

Our waiter was horrible, the food was not cooked the way we wanted it even though we told the waiter the specific way we wanted. He disappeared for like 20 minutes and had no idea where he went.

We're locals, and we return to this IHOP at least once a month as our "affordable choice" restaurant. It is big, spotless, folks are nice, and parking is terrific. If you are in the area at a hotel or Jersey Gardens Mall, I highly recommend it. Seriously - Best IHOP I've ever been to.

Located across the street from a huge mall in a building that used to house a large diner. IHOP has done a great job at this location.... More

Ate lunch here while on an overnight at a nearby hotel. Clean restaurant, inviting atmosphere, and I appreciated how this restaurant offers a military discount. Thank you!

Stuck at Newark airport where our "hotel" advertised a non-existant breakfast, we popped over to the near-by i-hop and thoroughly enjoyed an excellent breakfast served by pleasant, courteous and helpful young waitresses - reasonable prices, too!

Thank Kibbutz
