Just took my family out for breakfast this morning to the IHOP at Lougheed mall. Food was decent, the service was decent, but the prices are higher than "most" other places.
I asked if the drinks were included with the kids breakfast menu items, to which the reply was "yes". When I got the bill the drinks were an extra charge. 2 kids juices, which came in small glasses, were $3 each ($6 extra on the bill). When I asked about it while paying at the cashier, I was shown in fine print that the drinks include milk and soft drinks, but NOT juice. Juice is probably the most common breakfast drink - not a soft drink!! And why didn't our server think to tell us, when I asked if drinks are included with the kids menu? A little courtesy there wouldn't have gone a miss.
FFS - an absolute joke! Won't be going back..

The food was decent, and the servers are pleasant enough, but extremely slow. Whenever you need to order you'll have to flag them down on go and tap them on the shoulder for service. The most recent time I went I decided to order a few import pints, as opposed to domestics. Until then the highest price for such a pint was 6.75 (tax incl). The Rusty Gull blew that away with a wopping $7.82 per pint. When I said to the waitress she must've rang the taxes in twice, she showed me on the computer that the price was infact that, AND that there was an even more expensive pint they served for $8. My (4) beers cost me nearly $32. The MOST EXPENSIVE pint in the lower mainland (by over a dollar). I hope the manager or owner reads this and sorts it out, and quit trying to get rich overnight.
