there was an advertisement on tv that on friday the 31st the pancakes were free. but the add never stated the free pancakes where for kids only so i am quit sure that thats falls advertisement. i was not the only person in the restaurant that was there for the free meal. not that i couldn’t afford to pay for it but its just the thought of being deceived by the add. if they need to bring in more people to the restaurant i suggest having more specials. and not falls adds. my last trip to ihop ever.

Went to ihop in Burleson, TX tonight. Decided to order food Togo. We walked in, it took five minutes to be noticed. Girl at the front took our order. She had to be new because she didn’t seem very confident in taking our order. After taking it, she set it down and continued doing something else. So we are sitting down for 15 minutes and the girl picks up the order and starts ringing it into the POSI system. She doesn’t know how to ring it in and asks for help. By now we are there for 30 minutes. We wait another 30 minutes and the food is not out. So we told the girl to cancel our order left and had to settle for waffle house. I’m just glad we did not pay up front because that is ridiculous. I have been to that location many times, even when on a wait the food takes less than 20 minutes to come out.

I went to the IHOP at 201 S Federal Hwy, Dania Beach, FL 33004 today with a friend for breakfast, and everything this waitress did was wrong. She told us she was new, when she mixed up our order, an we told her that was ok. She said she gave it to another waitress, and that waitress also apologize. Then we had to wait on our food, and we tried to get someones attention they seem to ignore us. When she was suppose to be coming with our pancakes she came with one order, and said oh she didn’t get her pancakes, How was I suppose to have gotten them if she did not bring them. I don’t think that we should have paid the all of the bill. I think something should have been done. We are at that location a lot, and really was disappointed in the service today.

I am currently working at Manhasset Ihop in Long Island NY, I DO NOT like how the cooks treat the waitresses and the hostesses, one of them in particular is always very rude, loud and dirty. I have noticed that they also drink on the job and when they do drink they serve unpleasant food to the customers. The owner of this store is very nice to the stuff and I dont think is fair to the owner and his family that these cooks drink and disrespect the store.
