Good service, casual atmosphere,

 

large portions, allow substitutions, usually good food, but don’t recommend the biscuits and gravy…

I will preface this as we have been going to IHOP for years and this is the first time I have had any issues with any of their dishes; they are usually delicious.

I had a craving for breakfast for dinner so we headed to IHOP as they are one of the few restaurants in town where you can get breakfast 24/7.

I got the biscuits and gravy option which include 2 biscuits with sausage gravy, 2 eggs (your choice on cooking method), 2 strips of bacon and 2 sausage links (I substituted 2 strips of bacon for the sausage) and a side of hashbrowns for $8.99.

The eggs were overhard as requested and perfectly cooked to being well done without being rubbery.   The bacon hot and crispy and the hashbrowns well cooked without being too over or underdone and very happy with the plate on the right.

The plate of the left with the biscuits and gravy is another story as it is different than any like I had ever had before and this was the first time I had ever ordered this dish from IHOP.

The biscuits, instead of being split in have with a moist center turned seems to have been cooked to a lower height and each was a half biscuit with a toasted top and gave it an unexpected texture that I didn’t like, but the flavor was ok but the real issue was the gravy.

The gravy was watery with little flavor, like it was from a mix that should have been made with milk was water was used instead and there were only a few bits of oddly chopped sausage which looked a little like chopped mushrooms on the top and they didn’t have much flavor.

Seating consists of booths and tables and there are two different areas; the side on the right was a former smoking area when that was allowed and on the left, where we ate, was the former non-smoking area.

Service was excellent; when a large party was seated behind us and my guest voiced how uncomfortable it made him she suggested she could move us to another table and assisted us in doing so.  Also, I saw the hostess pitch in the waitress, who had been by herself on the side we were on.

I would recommend this place if you want to have breakfast for dinner or any other time, but just not the biscuits and gravy.
