What you should expect.
IHOP does what it does - diner-style food. There are no fancy ingredients, and no fancy preparations. So if you like this style of food, and you know what to expect, then you'll get about what you should expect.
What I think this restaurant does well is that its staff in the morning is exceedingly friendly and attentive. They actually remember people who come in with any frequency, and they greet these people accordingly. I have witnessed many occasions where I could tell that the customer felt special and pleased to be recognized and remembered.
Breakfast served all day and pancakes served a variety of ways are the hallmarks of this diner-style restaurant.. In Short The first International House of Pancakes opened in a suburb of Los Angeles in 1958 serving a menu of hearty breakfast favorites. Today the restaurant still serves its signature dishes like the original buttermilk pancakes and pigs in blankets: sausage links wrapped in hotcakes. Other breakfast items include waffles, omelets, French toast and crepes. Non-breakfast offerings include sandwiches, burgers, entree-sized salads, and dinners like T-bone steak, pot roast and herb-roasted chicken.
