Popped in for some breakfast before doing a Harvard tour (excellent way to see the campus). Have been to IHOP in Florida numerous times and never been disappointed. This was the complete opposite. The first server couldn't seem to even get our drinks order right...More

I ate here because it was not crowded around lunch. I visited with a friend. We started to talk around noon. When I looked at my watch again it was 4pm. So, the restaurant gets points for being a good place to talk.

Perhaps the cleanest IHOP I have visited in a very long time. The staff very friendly and extremely efficient.

Worst experience at an IHop, or possibly any breakfast place, ever. Dirty, slow service, disappointing food. Never again. There are so many lovely restaurants in Cambridge. Go somewhere else.

We dropped by IHOP a few times during our stay in Boston. Service was ok, not that bad or great. However, they sort of inconsistent in terms of using tableware for our food.

Had a combo with two scrambled eggs, two turkey sausage links, hash browns and eight pancakes! Pancakes were served two at a time and were all you can eat. They're fluffy and a good size, not too big and not too small. Wonderful waiter named...More

I generally avoid IHOPs but decided to have a late breakfast on a rainy day. The food was better than expected and so was coffee. The service was very good.
