For several weeks was "unable" to visit for early morning breakfast because it was "closed". I discovered on this trip that this is a 24 hour IHOP. Service and food were excellent. Don't hesitate to stop in. Hours listed on Trip Advisor are incorrect.

We were doing a "return the four year old grandkid to mom), so with four grandkids, and two cousins, we were a large party (4 adults, four children, a teen, and a baby) and understood that would slow things down, but taking over an hour to get food and the four year old was served last - kids waffle and...

The Gainesville location is clean, has good food and service. Most important, has the Swedish Lingonberry Crepes that I love. My husband loves the variety of omelets.

Our family stopped for a late night meal after leaving the airport. Our server was average and the food was average. I couldn't get what I wanted (a BLT) because they were out of mayonnaise. I couldn't quite understand how a place like ihop runs out of mayonnaise. I'd suspect that the person responsible for ordering supplies needs to do... More

We ate here several times during our family get together. The service was great. If you do go ask for server Dayane or Maria, they really seemed like veterans and did an excellent job. The food was good and served the way it was ordered. No one had any complaints. For chain they really did a god job.

Very good service is what sets one IHOP apart from another. They're food is pretty hard to mess up (although I've found a couple that figured out how). This place has been reliably very good for many return visits over several years.

IHOP isn't fancy or at the top of my list for lunch/dinner spots, but if you want a great breakfast for a reasonable price where you can be comfy and casual, and hang out with friends, this is a great spot! Pancakes, French toast, crêpes, all the classics!!

I took my daughter out to breakfast and we had a great meal together. The atmosphere was friendly and this restaurant is always a full house when I visit. We had to wait to be seated and the table wasn't completely clean which the service score reflect this occurrence. Our waitress was attentive and the place was nice and clean.... More

Ate there with my daughters. They are regulars there, so we were greeted warmly. Food was very good as usual. Service was excellent, waitress advice on menu choices was really good.
