In the Poco Place Shopping Center
Mrs. C and I took our usual dinner gang for some brunch action and IHOP was exactly what we were looking for. This location was nice and clean and seemed quite busy for a Saturday afternoon. Service was good throughout the meal, but I am not sure why they put us in a dark booth near the bathroom when there were available booths by the big windows.
We all ordered pancakes, and I decided to try the pumpkin ones which were on special. I came to regret that choice. The flavor was just plain weird, and the syrup only made things worse.... All the other food was good, and the eggs in particular were expertly prepared. Price-wise it was also not a bad deal considering the big portion sizes. I know I will become best friends with a cardiologist soon if I keep eating this kind of food, but I can't help myself. I fear my friends (and my beloved spouse) will suffer a similar fate.
Recommended for those who live for now.
Don't know what all the hype is all about. First time here, The host was kinda rude
he won't seat people unless all the guests in your party are counted for. you will lose your seats if
you are waiting for 1 more guest just minutes away. "Come Hungry, leave happy". posted throught out
the restaurant. That's promising?! , Well not really. I had the Sampler similar to Whitespots nats hearty Breakfast... Comparing quality, portions and prices.. Whitespot gets the big thumbs up from me. Ihop
just costs too much for small portions.. special jellies and whipcream.. big deal.. not only that, but when you tip from the debit machine, be warned..
you are tipping on top of the hst.. so make sure you tip on the food total only. do not use the preset tipping percentage. what a scam. they don't deserve more than 10% tip..
We decided to try this Ihop for the first time this morning. There were only two tables occupied and the waitress tried to sit us right next to a person talking loudly on a cell phone. After moving to a quieter part of the restaurant, we orderd our breakfast. If a cook mades pancakes all the time, you would think they could do it without burning them. Hate paying for burnt food.
The whole restaurant smells like a bathroom cleaned with pine-sol, very uncomfortable. will NOT be going back -
DeDutch across Lougheed is so much BETTER.
We went to IHOP for our son's birthday breakfast. He ordered chocolate pancakes. They were the worse tasting pancakes ever! I tried a bite and choked it down. Never knew you could screw up a pancake. My son barely could finish it either so he left a lot on the plate. It tasted so dry and tasted like you added cocoa to it. It would taste better if you added chocolate chips; melted to it. Then our adult breakfasts came in the size of child portion. We looked at each other and wondered if we would be full. The Egg Benedict was ok on my end. But didn't like the hash browns at all; they came in half burnt. My husband had the standard; eggs, sausage, and toast type of breakfast. Can't remember what he ordered. But it was in such small portion and very pricey; not worth the price. When we left; 2 hours later husband became so sick in his stomach from what he had for breakfast there. He felt like he ate a cup full of grease. Never again will eat there since it is in such small servings for a 8.99 breakfast which looks to be 3.99 worth. We left hungry. Service was also poor. The staff looked so bored and unhappy. Will never go back.
**correction..my husband reminded me he had the crepes and said they were terrible and he couldn't finish it as well and was sick afterwards from it.**
We went in to this IHOP to get a hot turkey sandwich...had an urge for it...not on menu. Ok ordered something else. The server was terrible, young guy comes up to our table ready to order, we said yes,
my husband ordered some roast beef dinner for over 55, and got a side salad. It came and looked like
a childs plate. The salad was ok...just ok, had to walk to counter to ask him for garlic toast. And the correct
salad dressing. Then the bill came....outrageous...35.00 for the worse meal...and a charge of 4.99 for a side
salad where the lettuce smelled like it came out of a bag....Do not go here unless you want pancakes...please.
