I ate at an IHOP location in hampton va on mercury Blvd while on vacation this past Sat May 14th and the manager on duty was clearly intoxicated as well as you could smell the alcohol on her breath. By far one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had my food was good and server was great but seeing the manager in this light ruined it for me and my friends. I’m sure this will not be the only complaint being as though some one has there phone out recording her behavior.

I am a former employee of franchise 593 in Roanoke Virginia.This store has some major issues in management and employees. The store has a seventeen year old named Savanna Johnston crew chiefing and do interviews. Tina Fairchilds the GM is unprofessional. While I was there as a crew chief my shifts were understaffed, employees would come in late and not be reprimanded and there was a paper sent to our DM to fill out on Savanna Johnston. He filled out the paper sent it back to her teacher with unfavorable marks and the teacher sent one to our GM to fill out and she gave her favorable which was not the truth about her performance. I had issues with Savanna and the GM never approached her about the issues but Savanna lied on me to the GM and she discussed the issue in front of employees and customers with me. That was very unprofessional. It not fair to the owners to lose money because the morning shit runs up labor and the evening shift and late nite shifts have inadequate staffing.I quit because of employees lying and stealing money on shifts.There is also a cook Robert Caldwell who said he was told by management to give certain employees a hard time so they would quit. I was told I could not work the same shift as my daughter but the GM and her don worked the same shift together. When I did work ad crew chief with my daughter some of the other employees told management I showed her favortism . They complained because she came in at three in the afternoon and I let her off first but I did that for everyone who came in first just not her.If you are not in the circle of friends wth the GM she does not want you working at that establishment.

Just thought you would like to know that one of your franchises just got a 49 from the health inspectors and old patrons don’t even go in anymore as the food takes 45 mins to get and it is cold when they do

My husbands a server in humble,tx down on 1960. Let me just say that im disgusted on how this company works. You guys take away holidays and off days from the people working for you all. My husband has missed first birthdays first holidays etc. Hes a hard worker. Works nights. Barely gets any tips. Has to work on that pancake free sh*t even if its his day off. And works all holidays. Its sad to see your kid cry on thier birthday cause daddy has to work. Or on holidays. I was close to leaving my husband because he barely spends any time with us. He sleeps all day. Gets up and off to work. Aside from that he deals with really fd-up customers who call them selfs christians . Like miss julia can you please take your time to make different arrangements. Pls cause not even on holidays they make enough tips.

Went to the IHOP in Destiny (Syracuse, NY) party of 9. We were seated quickly…. the waitress right off the bat says just to let you know we only have 1 cook on today so it may take some time getting your food……we said that it was fine. My daughter orders a milkshake and the waitress says we no longer sell milkshakes and that they are supposed to be getting new menus…..that was issue #1….oh and I hope they do get new menus because they were filthy and most of them covered in syrup….. Waitress had us look over the menu and came back 20 min later to take our order. Half of my party ordered waffles, the waitress says our waffle maker is broken…my sister orders soup and was told they are not serving soup today…we all had to quickly change our orders… After a minute of discussing these issues with my family I go up to the waitress and tell her to just cancel everything, we were going somewhere else. Waitress proceeded to ask us how we wanted to pay for our drinks. My sister then breaks it down to her all of the issues and says now are you really going to charge us for these drinks? Waitress says have a nice days and walks away…I never got the waitresses name but it was 4/27/16 at around 1:30pm. This is not the first time we had issues here. I was actually turned away in March and was told they were too busy and too understaffed to serve me and my family. And never apologized for it.

We had a bad experience and I wrote an e-mail to let whoever know because I thought they needed to know about it. I got a response within a few days along with a gift card for the amount of our meal. We went a couple week later to use the card. It was a different day & different shift, thinking the issues we had the first time would not happen again. Well those problems did not but others did. I re-wrote a letter to the Area Supervisor who had answered me the first time. It was now been almost a month, with no response. So I decided to find another way to get this to IHOP, thinking that maybe going “higher up” will get me somewhere. Judging by what I’ve read here, it will not. But here goes… This is what I sent directly to the Area Supervisor.

Mr. Hinojosa,

I wanted to let you know that we did go back to the IHOP on Lawrenceville Suwanee Road in Lawrenceville yesterday at about 10:00am. It was worse than the original time we went!

The restaurant was only about 1/3 full with customers. There was nobody in front of us when we walked in but it took several minutes for us to be seated as there was nobody at the hostess stand or the register. When a young lady did come up, she did not say a word. She just grabbed some menus and started walking away. Not “Sorry for the wait”, “Hi, How are you?”, not “Please follow me”, not “Your server will be right with you”. Nothing.

While we were waiting for a server we looked over the menu. We decided what we wanted to order but still had not been waited on, not even for our drinks. We looked around and noticed a few other tables in the same situation. We could see the waitress station and there were three young ladies debating on which of them was going to wait on the table closest to them. Ten minutes later, we had still not been waited on and flagged somebody down who then took our order. We then waited and waited some more, still hadn’t gotten our drinks, so we flagged someone else down who brought us water. At this point, we still haven’t seen the one who took our order. We waited and waited. Other tables have also not been waited on either but the restaurant was not busy and there was plenty of staff, they just weren’t doing anything. We finally decided to get up and leave. On the way out, there was a man with his wife and child at the unattended hostess stand (next to the unattended register) and I asked him if he was waiting to be seated and he said an exasperated “yes”. I suggested to him that he not waste any more of his time go ahead and leave. We told him that we had been there for over thirty minutes and hadn’t been served yet. Just then a young lady came up to the hostess stand and started to say something but I stopped her by saying the same thing to her.

What I just described to you is absolutely absurd! They weren’t even busy! It was a weekday and mid-morning! The restaurant was less than half full and there were plenty of staff on the floor. I don’t know what is going on in this location but there is definitely a problem that needs to be fixed.

After having said that, my husband really wanted IHOP (which I did NOT want!) and so we drove all the way to the Buford location on Buford Drive. When we got there, it was completely opposite. We were greeted and sat at a table immediately. We mentioned what we had just experienced and a manager came over and apologized for THEM. He took our order and serve us himself and continued to check on us throughout the meal. He said he wanted to make sure we were treated like we were supposed to be treated and couldn’t believe what we had told him. I don’t know if you are the supervisor over that location as well but that man should be acknowledged for doing his job and doing it well. His name was Matt.

Going back to the original location in Lawrenceville…. We will NOT be going back there ever!

We stopped by the Lake Worth, TX IHOP this morning around 9AM. Traffic at the restaurant was light and the Greeter was also the cashier. After standing by the podium without any acknowledgement from the Greeter he continued to check out the customers wanting to pay their bill. After waiting for 3-4 payment transactions we asked the Greeter if we could just seat ourselves and was told NO!, that he would be with us shortly. This was very discourteous to us who frequent IHOP on a weekly basis. Guess what! We left and had breakfast at another restaurant; and there are plenty of competing restaurants. It will now be quite some time before we go back to an IHOP.

Visited an iHop this morning in Williamsburg, VA and received the worst service ever. I am used to an up front wait to be seated as has been the case most of the time when I’ve gone to other locations around he country but after being seated we waited 30 minutes before we decided to walk out. During this 30 minute wait “at our table” we never even received drinks. Our waiter stopped by the table twice with the first time to give us a long explanation about how busy he was but assured us we would be next even though he had four other tables ahead of us. He then went on to tell us something about his word being the only thing he has. His inappropriate complaining about being busy and unrelated side comments was something I have never encountered at a restaurant. Jaquanes next stop by our table was roughly 15-20 minutes later when he wanted to let us know that he had not forgotten about us. which resulted in additional waiting until I decided it was time to leave.

Just visited an Ihop in National City, CA. We got a gift card from someone and boy am i glad we did. The staff was all super great. My kids ordered kids meals with drinks, I got a salad and the hubs got eggs and sausage, etc. (Basically breakfast.) We got our bill and were floored…We payed $24 out of pocket in addition to our $25 gift card. Meaning my youngest child’s meal was over $8 including drink. She’s 6. Hardly ate. My salad had gross dressing that tasted like orange juice. It’s IHOP for crying out loud. Sub par food at best cost a family of 4 almost $50. We won’t be going there again. And if I get a gift card, I’ll sell it and keep whatever cash I can get.

On March 17, 2016, I visited a I Hop Restaurant in Palmdale, CA. My husband and I ordered their special. Upon ordering, I requested egg beaters soft due to me being allergic to eggs. When she returned with our breakfast, I took a look at it and noticed that the eggs were not soft like I ordered them and asked her to take them back and requested soft eggs again (politely) . When she returned with my breakfast I asked her again if the eggs were egg beaters and she responded yes. I took a couple of bites of the eggs and my month, lips and throat started itching and tingling. At that time, I asked to see the manager. The manager came over to our table and I asked her were the eggs real and she replied yes. I told her that I ordered egg beaters and the waitress assured me that they were. The manager was very nice and kept asking me was I okay. I just waived my hands and told her not to worry about it. After leaving the restaurant, I told my husband to take me to see my doctor due to my month, lips and throat tingling and itching. Once at the doctor’s office, she injected me with Benadryl and prescribed Loratadine 10MG and Famotidine 20MG. I feel that I Hop was negligent in serving me eggs after telling the waitress Alejandr (327) that I was allergic to real eggs and therefore requested egg beaters. If I would not have went to see my doctor, the allergic reaction could have caused me breathing problems which would have been worse. I therefore request compensation for pain and suffering due to negligence I Hop’s negligence.

Shame on you! One of your patrons posted their receipt from you Cesar Chavez Street location on February 16th at 3:03 am, served by DWAYNE. The receipt says “Black ppl” just above the date. Why do you think this is ok? Are all of your receipts color coded by race? This is NOT ok. If this is supposed to be a means for the wait staff to identify their customers, then perhaps you should revamp the system. I would encourage anyone who is in the “Black ppl” class to not patronize this establishment, or any other of your establishments that deems it necessary to categorize their customers!

Well I was about to send a complaint regarding your store manager in Conyers Ga. who accused me of planting something in my food after I crunched on some unedible object in my omelette. As I stated to her my husband and I make 150+ a year. I don’t need to plant something in my food just to get an 8 dollar discount. She never even came to our table. I had to go and look for her after 30 minutes of her ignoring us. But after reading these comments here and a lack of response by corporate. It is obvious that you care nothing about your customers OR your employees. For that reason we will be severing our 40+year patronage of IHOP. We will never again set foot in your Conyers, Ga store or any other IHOP store. Thank you for showing how much you value your customers

I hear you, Janis. I know from personal experience that IHop Corp has NO interest in the concerns or interests of any of their customers or employees. The restaurant managers seem to be above the law and allowed to treat people any way they like as long as they appear to follow IHop SOP. Restaurants are inspected and graded twice a year but grades don’t amount to a hill of beans unless there are “critical” infractions observed on these days (2 out of 365). I have never known of Corp getting to the bottom of any customer or employee complaint.

I was appalled how the manager at 5628 Carolina Beach Road, Wilmington, NC 28412 named: Autumn and assistant mgr. is treating the employees.
Specifically on 3/13/16 Autumn was screaming at her employees who had a table of 12 people. The police were called because of the yelling and other customers left with their small children.
I have been going to this Ihop location for over 2 years now. I have observed on many occasions: Autumn yelling, demeaning, and just extremely rude towards her employees in front of the customers. I’ve also noticed a comment by: Janice Harris and I agree with her whole heartedly! Corporate should have stepped in.

I have worked at the same IHop going on 6 years despite the horrid work environment, because the money is good. This is a franchise restaurant run by a foreign national man who “controls” incoming guest traffic effectively controlling the income of every employee. The “favorites” get the best stations (there is NO rotation of stations) and the best looking tables, including all the known good tippers (there is NO rotation of seating). His SOP is segregated seating and discrimination against female employees and goes against ALL published IHop directives. Seating procedure is not carried out according to IHop SOP, tables that are “ready to be seated” are passed over for tables that are not, as consequence, some servers regularly earn 25% to 30% more than others. There is also discrimination against the older, veteran servers. They are made to “open” at 5:00am (this is a 24 hr location) because the younger “favorites” cannot or will not arrive that early, and made to work the more difficult stations (ie the big top stations which are also farthest away from the service area and dish area). Some servers NEVER have to deal with 5, 6 and 7 top tables that tip $2.00, they only have to serve nothing bigger than a 4 top. Any server knows that the tip percentage always averages higher when there are no big tops. The segregation is so glaring I can’t believe guests don’t complain. Two out of every three black tables go to the front or the back, but not in the middle where all the “good” servers work. You will see black tables seated back to back and side by side in the same area, but none in other areas. The front and back rooms are reserved for the trashy, dirty, ethnic, handicapped, old and stinky people, while the middle is reserved for the upper class, nicely dressed predominantly white people. I can almost understand the segregated seating thing, but not the lack of station rotation. Go ahead and seat like with like, but let ALL the servers have the pleasure of waiting of less than desirable tables. I’m sure the segregation and discrimination could warrant legal action, but I am afraid that calling attention in such a way would cause me to lose my job! As much as I hate the way my restaurant is run, I still like being a server and still make good money, even if I could be making 25% to 30% more if given the opportunity. I know my comments won’t get the attention of anyone at IHop Corp, I have discussed issues with them before and was given the run around and ultimately ignored. Nonetheless, I feel better getting things off my chest.

It was about 2 to 3 weeks. when I had hasten back there was an older sever she’s 24 she had told everyone I slept with my manger, a cook and sever . I told two of my mangers no one did anything about it. As a week went by I felt so uncomfortable working there and told my mangers of

Dear Sir:

On Sunday, January 31st my daughter and I went to IHOP located in Plantation, Florida on University Drive and Peters Road. We were seated quickly, but it took at least 15 minutes for our waitress Alicia to commit to taking our order and when she did come her demeanor was lackluster at best…. No smile and she approached the table slowly. Once the orders were taken it took another 20 minutes for our orders to come. While waiting we noticed the manager stood around with some of the waitresses like a prince with his harem. Finally the food arrived. For my daughter fried chicken and mash potatoes and for myself turkey, mash potatoes and stuffing… The turkey was dry and although the first scoop of stuffing was okay… the second scoop tasted bad when I put a bite in my mouth. Immediately I could taste and smell it was spoiled. We called Alicia over who was extremely apologetic and removed the offending dish. She returned moments later and explained she took it off the bill and gave my daughter a 20% discount. Although appreciative of her act… Never once did the manager come out to apologize and as a 76 year old woman I have spent more than half of my life cooking so without a shadow of doubt I know the cook knew the stuffing was rotten to the core when he or she heated and served it to me. Needless to say as a senior citizen ingesting spoiled food I could have become extremely ill. SHAME ON YOU IHOP!!!

I just started my new job at the Ihop in Bossier City, LA on 27 Jan 2016. It was a nightmare for myself. The shift started at 6pm and i was told to clock out at 8:30pm. I am supposed to be training for the Hostess/Cashier position. The hostess part went smooth, on the other hand, cashiering didn’t go so well because the manager on duty did not have the patients. From 8-8:30pm i pressed the wrong button twice and he told me to clock out and get out of his store. If i’m in training, Why have management do the training if he doesn’t have the patients? I’m supposed to return tonight at 6pm but he makes me feel uncomfortable to be trained by him. If i go in and mess up, what is he gonna do, FIRE ME!!!!!!! That would not be right because i need this job. Someone please help me.

I wish to stay annonymous but I have recently started visiting the Decatur, Il IHOP store #5449 since the new owner and new management I have to say the food great and my server who stated she was new was excellent. So I continue to come however after a late night trip to IHOP I ran into I’m guessing the night manager I didn’t receive her name she is Mexican I believe she was very rude to tables around me myself included I’ve never seen a manager run a shift so poorly or talk to there employees so bad. I was astonished because we’ve been there several times during the day and never seen management like that. However I do like coming there I will no longer be coming late nights due to poor management.

So here it is, I’m at the my old neighborhood IHOP, 2 North State Road 7 Plantation, Fl 33317 Location #36-186 In which I experienced the worst MANAGER customers service EVER!! I received in business. As an owner of a company I know for a fact it’s not easy satisfying everyone but having respect and concerns for new & returning customers is EVERYTHING!! I say that to say this I order from the restaurant to go. Taking the food to a family & friend. I received my order #442 not checking it thinking, their a reliable restaurant. “Boy was I WRONG” I delivered the food. And was headed back home. I received a call and pictures (quoted) “THIS IHOP GETS A F-ING F. Excuse the French, THE BREAD GOING BAD & I FOUND A PIECE OF HAM BETWEEN MY SH*T. I’M THROWING ALL THIS SH*T OUT” At that moment I was in shock so decided to stop back by the Ihop location and inform them of my concerns. Walked in politely asking to speak with a Manager. The manager comes before me. I inform her of the situation and the pictures. She looked at me rolled her eyes like it was NOTHING. Then asked me, If is she was pissed off like I was in the wrong for coming back. Bring the food back. I told her I dropped the food off already. Again she replied in a annoyed voice well what you want me to do. I politely told her I’m a regular customers here & a business owner as well therefore i don’t cheat folks out there money. As much as I don’t wanna be cheated out of mines. I want a refund or credit. She replied I can give u sum new toast like if it was a joke. I told her the individuals threw away the entire food. She got upset. I told her don’t worry I will contact corporate she then walked off rudely in which I asked one of the waitress for a copy of my receipt (#442). Then the manager returned trying to hand me $10.00 instead of the receipt, in which my total bill was ($22.45) excluding tip which left. I told her its not about the money the disrespect you have shown me in the little time I have returned states a lot. I rather eat and spend my money with a lower class restaurant with well groomed and considerate people, let alone a manager then a place with a manager like you. It I had not mentioning A higher level of action. You wouldn’t even tempted to resolve this matter. Therefore keep the petty money you seem to need it more then me. NEVER AGAIN will I purchase food from an Ihop with a manager of this CLASS. Cause customers service and concerns means nothing to her. Even at the point showing her the spoil pictures in her Ihop containers. IHOP really gotta start evaluating the managers they putting at there Establishment NEVER to BIG TO FALL!!

I went to ihop on Sunday, January 10th in the Golden Ring location, I was with my coworkers we arrived at 9:30 and ordered our drinks, it was nice until the lady threw our straws on the table, found it kind of rude but I just hurried and gave her my order as well as the others with me. We got our food and while we were eating all of the employees working that night were just watching us, I asked for a glass of water and when I she handed it to me I could see some little white particles floating underneath the ice, I didn’t feel like complaining because it was almost their closing time, we all finished our food and still being watched we asked for boxes and left. The next day 3 including me of my coworkers had an upset stomach and my girlfriend and I actually vomitted. I never experienced anything like this before it was the worse feeling ever.

I went to Ihop in Palm Bay FL on 12/31/15 and the service and food was great…That being said I discovered they ran my credit card for a higher and although it’s minor it’s still not right that they did that. I contacted them on Monday was told they would fix it well 5 days later and had to call them and was told it will take 7-10 days for it to be refunded..I have never had a problem with this before and to have to wait this long is not good customer service…

I went to the IHOP in Chico, CA a few days ago in the morning to have breakfast. First of all, the service was okay at best. I found a hair in my food, at which I asked for my food to be remade and the server was fast to attend to my request as she immediately called my order back to the kitchen (I could hear her voice from the dining area), apologized for the inconvenience and sent her manager Melinda over to speak with me and my husband. The manager was extremely rude to us as she rolled her eyes when we complained about the HAIR I found in a big steak omelette I had already started to eat… She refused to take the off the bill and said that it was impossible for me to have found a hair in my food, she went on to argue the it was a string from the steak when it was clearly a hair. Nonetheless, she insulted my intelligence, and had extremely poor customer service. My server handled the situation much better than she did, but not without the price of overhearing her chastise and belittle our poor waitress. Even when we were going to leave as we walked to the back of the parking lot, my husband and I was appalled to see the general manager smoking a joint next to (we’re assuming) her car. The strong stench of marijuana was nothing to misjudge, I cannot believe the person in charge of managing of IHOP in Chico would find it appropriate to smoke marijuana not only while on the clock, but AT THE RESTAURANT WHILE SHE IS MANAGING. Absolutely ridiculous. Worst experience we have ever had. Thanks to the general manager, I will NEVER be coming back to IHOP again. She seriously needs better training, she is completely unqualified in her position. Very unhappy and shocked at the lack of professionalism.

Sir, I experienced the same type of service today at IHOP in Birmingham, AL (January 06, 2016). I was ignored for over 15 minutes, restaurant was not busy at all, several servers passed, never asked was my order taken, may I get you some coffee, your server will be, no eye contact or any-kind of communications. Then called the manager from smartphone and told her (D. Thomas) my situation. She did say that she was sorry and never follow-up with my order such as quality of food being hot, correctly presented and in a timely manner. No suggestions of any source to make sure the customer left happy and wanted to return with family and friends. Totally unorganized, non professional staff, minimum skill set, lack of quality customer service and training from the wait staff to management. Lousy and unsatisfied service. Most likely will not attend and recommend this IHOP again and to anyone.

My husband an I would like to take the time to give Ihop in seaford de a compliment. We had a waitress today her name was Maurica on the ticket it said her name an a number 107 if that matters. She gave us much more than amazing service. We were there for about an hour enjoying our lunch an having coffee. We watched her work non stop. We also spoke with a very nice lady her name was Rochelle I believe . We let her know that this waitress went above and beyond to her customers. Your company should be glad to have this young lady . I just wanted Ihop to hear a great positive thing because in restaurant business I know well a people complain easier than take the time to compliment . Thank you for the best Ihop experience we have ever received .

This experience ruined my Christmas. We arrived at the Thomasville location at 550 pm. We placed our order. Our server was very nice. The restaurant was not crowded when we arrived at all. It took 45 minutes for the food to arrive. My daughter’s never arrived, my husband and mines was wrong and we could not get drinks. Instead of coming back to help us the server kept taking orders from new people coming in. Our appetizer cancer with the food. I went and asked for a manager and he never came so I went back and he said very rudely he didn’t have time to talk to me. So I sat back down and waited. Keep in mind 4 of 5 people had food, 2 orders wrong and no one had anything to drink. My daughter finally said just to have hers taken off the bill and went to the car so I went back and asked for boxes so we could take what we had home and fix it so it was edible and actually have something to drink with it(forgot to mention we drove 45 minutes for this experience) guess what! They had no boxes. Surprise. So I asked could we please just have a drink so we could eat(my grown nephew has traumatic brain injury and trouble swallowing so can not eat without a drink) the server came back and said “my manager said you all can leave”! People were walking out right and left! On the way out I asked the manager for his name and he wouldn’t even look at me but a nice young man told me it was tavis. Wow, I have not been to this IHOP as we usually use the one in Albany Georgia. We are now on the drive home, all hungry, nothing to cook and I’m in tears. You all really need to talk to the poor employees working under this man and he needs alot of instruction on how to treat his customers. Maybe he was mad because he had to work on Christmas but that gave him no right to ruin ours.

My husband and I stopped in at a IHOP in Midland Texas , After traveling from Dallas Tx. We were very hungry. We have never had this experience happen to us before walked in stood there for about 20 minutes. There were 3 people before us I politely asked how long they had been waiting and they replied they had been waiting for sometime !!!!! My husband is a diabetic and had taken his medicine before entering the IHOP . I finally had had it I walked to the seating area , a young gentleman asked what I needed and I told him we had been waiting for sometime. He said come on I’ll seat you . I then mentioned to him that the people before us needed help also . The individual sat us down in the back of the restaurant . That is when I noticed tables were very dirty and food still on the tables from other customers!!!! Floor’s were discussing paper, food and who know
What else lurked there !! After being served orange juice from a dirty glass I said no way are we going to eat here !!!!
If your hungry please for your health do not
Stop there ! Off of I-20 NO NO !!

I am sitting in your Milwaukee/Northridge location and basically all your employees are in back seating area. Talking about Pussy and Dick. Strippers. Talking about people not coming in to work.

The manager (Jessica) at your Orangeburg, SC location has no people skills. She’s rude to her workers and does not know how to treat them. She needs to go through management training again or be fired. I thought managers were supposed to help their employees? In my opinion, if you don’t know how to treat people, you should not be in the food service business.

I think you need to go in the comments section for the new store in Beavercreek, Ohio and read the comments left by one of your managers calling customers liars. I would be shocked if this is the message IHOP wants to use. We had poor service there this week but as I was leaving a comment about the service I read her comments and was shocked to see this from a management position.

IHOP off FM 78 San Antonio Texas is by far worst IHOP ever. You can sit there and look back and watch waitresses eat off customers plates. The manager is never available because he’s busy cooking. Hostess Uniform is always dirty, the coffee is horrible. They’ll have like 12 waitresses on floor for half a store and they complain because they don’t make any money. Had our waitress’s wig fall off one day. Just by far an awful place to be. Glad the Denny’s is a block a way

It’s 3:21 pm here in Carrollton, GA. There is currently 1 (count em, 1) waitress in this entire store. In addition to that, she’s acting as hostess. We had to wait to be seated, wait for our order to be taken, hope food isn’t cold when we get it. The waitress is sweet, doing her best, and apologizing like crazy. This restaraunt has serious issues. Might the problem lie with management?

On the internet today was an announcement that I-Hop was discontinuing soft drinks with kid’s meals. I spoke with a manager at the Louisville, Kentucky restaurant on Hurstborne Lane. The manager informed me that was not the case at “my franchise.” She was extremely rude, and ended my call by calling me “darling”, and “have a blessed day.” She hung up on me. For years my family has enjoyed I-Hop. As a matter of fact, for four years in the sixties I worked as a cook in the Reseda, California restaurant. As of today my family are now former customers, I strongly object to I-Hop trying to raise my grand children. (12 adults, 17 grandchildren, and six great grandchildren). Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I have performed all my duties and more just to realize I wasn’t getting paid all the hours I worked . When I brought it to my manager’s attention (sabrina squires) she assured me she will help . After another two weeks went by and me constantly reminding her but yet still receiving no help , I got another incomplete check . I sat down and told her that I felt as if she was constantly dodging me about my money and her response was that she doesn’t care , I got fired thanksgiving night for storming out unpleasant with the situation, the next day I wrote a complaint letter and was told they have no time for me . I handed it to another manager who then gave it to the person who the complaint was about and she read it then asked me to leave , still this issue has not been fixed, and I honestly DON’T believe she filed my complaint.

The music was still loud, what upsets me more was that we was the only one in the restaurant and she still didn’t lower the music down or turn it off due to my hearing problem. She wasn’t polite at all and was very rude. This is not acceptable at all.

I was recently employed at an IHOP located on FL 44 in Wildwood, Florida. This location is a hostile work environment, if I’ve ever known one. I’ve brought it to the owners attention on a few occasions. Now I’m bringing it to the attention of whom ever listens/reads this on the corporate website. This location, is not franchised. It is locally owned. It is poorly managed. Gets little business, highly staffed, by staff that complains about the ‘CHEAP’ guests. When its not the cheap guests at all, but, the poor management. That over schedules the floor staff. I’ve talked with the owner who says “what to you want me to do?” I have replied send staff home as they complain and put negativity in the air. The owner has also said, “we never know how busy, we’re going to be.” I’ve worked in restaurants, now, for some fifteen years. Its called a monthly projected sales forcast….Lastly, the owners have favorites, including the General Manager. And make one elderly lady whom has an ill husband cry EVERY shift she works. If not several times a shift. Someone stop these monsters, please. I quit this am, after this elderly woman came to me for help. She was too intimidated to go to the appropriate person in fear of humility. A huge deal was made because I picked up the dallas key, that I didnt even need to use, to help her fix her error. In our new computer system. Also no one received training on this new system.

My fiancé and I went out for Thanksgiving and visited the Yuma Az ihop. I’m thankful that I have something to eat and hate calling food ‘SLOP” in this case that is exactly what we ate. I served in the military and the food was outstanding. My advise to ihop is to stick what you know best “Pancakes” and stay away from Thanksgiving meals. Everything in that meal was not fresh all boxed. IHOP ruined our Thanksgiving meal “thanks”.

I am telling everyone to boycott your restaurant because you do not allow seniors to order from the senior menu for breakfast after 10pm. A child can order after 10pm from the kids menu. You have 2 menu’s one says “Anytime Menu” this means Anytime. I photographed every page and no where do you state I can not order from the anytime senior selection. There is zero senior on the 10pm till 6am menu. What’s up and why do I have to pay the non senior price after 10pm…

My husband and I went to IHOP on 250 close to Garfield in Midland, TX. Our waiter was friendly and had our drinks on the table in less than five minutes. He took our order with a few minutes after serving our drinks. We both ordered the breakfast special, mine with waffles and my husband with two butter pancakes with dollops of cream cheese between the pancakes. We asked for the bacon to be a little crispy.We received our meal in a timely manner, however, the pancakes were on a small plate with the cream cheese dripping off the plate and my bacon was way overcooked. Tasted burnt. I don’t understand why the pancakes were on a small plate and why the server would put it on our table dripping all over the place. When I was getting up top leave, you could see a trail of cream cheese up to where I was sitting. When I went to pay my bill, I brought it to the server’s attention, telling him I would have never served that plate to a customer. All he could do is apologize. The services at the IHOPs has gone down in this area. The employees don’t care about the place or the service they give. They clean tables and wipe the food crumbs and papers onto the floor. What has happened to customer services? I know, it just doesn’t make sense. After this, I really don’t know if I ever want to go back to IHOP in this area.

Today we ( a party of 3) went to the IHOP in South Burlington Store #3255. We had been seated promptly and served with our drinks with in minutes, our order was placed and 40 minutes later we were told by the waitress that our meals would be out in a few minutes. During these 40 minutes a couple was seated at the table in front of us and 4 people were seated across from us. 10 minutes after the waitress told us our food would be out in a few minutes, the couple in front of us received their food and the table across from us recieved their food, 5 minutes later our food was brought to our table ICE cold, when the waitress returned with a plate that she could not carry out with the others I asked her how long our food had been sitting waiting as it was cold. She said I an send it back and they can warm it up or I can get you all new plates, I told her we did not have time to wait another 45 minutes for our food and I dont want my food warmed up I want it hot when it is delivered, she told me she could take 20 percent off my bill and I told her that was not acceptable and that I would like to see the manager. She comes out with the waitress that had waited on the table in front of us ( who I assumed was the manager) and asked me what the problem was I proceed to tell her and she also stated that they could get us a fresh plate or give me 20 percent off my bill. I said seriously 20 percent off a bill of food I can not eat, she said well I can give you a bigger discount it depends on how much of the food you eat. We tried to eat the food but it was to cold and disgusting. They came back by and asked if I wanted my bill or the bill that they were going to correct depending on the food I ate, I said yes I would and I would like the number to your corporate office and the number of this store. Minutes later the 2 waitresses come back and told me that the meals were on the house and they hope that this experience doesnt stop me from coming back. 5 minutes later I have this young man in jeans and a plaid shirt that looked like he had slept in it lean over my table with his hands cupped to his face and just stared at me, I asked can I help you, he said I was told you wanted to speak to me, I said about what, he said your meal so I asked are you the manager, he replied yes so I once again tell my complaint and he proceeds to tell me the same story and I say no these meals were free according to the waitress and he stutters and said oh yes mam they are and here are 2 free entree coupons because we dont want to loose your business. WELL TO LATE BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOW LOST IT!! First you may want to get employees who know the rules of your restaurant, if your management dresses like they just crawled out of bed that is pretty sad and you should address this as well. There are so many issues in this restaurant you might want to make a visit and check out your staff. I would like a response to this complaint as I want to make sure someone is actually reading these or if this is the way this company does business all the way around. HAPPY VETERANS DAY TO THE SOLDIERS THAT WERE THERE I HOPE YOUR SERVICE WAS BETTER THAN OURS

We go to the I-Hop in Silverdale WA, at least two or three times a week. The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly and fast, and we travel a lot. The dishes are removed before we leave. They call us by name, and even open the door for us to leave. The manager is one of a kind. very friendly and makes a great impression on everyone.
The staff is always looking great. We have been going there for about 4 years. We drove to Bremerton Wa before they moved to Silverdale. I would recommend this place to anyone that loves Good Food, and friendly service.

My boyfriend and I loved eating at ihop. The first time we went there the service was ok although it toke forever to get the food. The second time it toke awhile also. Today we waited to be given a table then waited 10 minutes befor we could get our water from a waitress that said she was not our server. She left and still no one came so we walked out. We spoke to the manager she she acted like she didn’t give a shit. We are NEVER going to ihop ever again. I have never seen worst customer service anywhere else.

We went to Ihop because kids eat free tonight and my son wanted a scary face pancake. My daughter wanted a kids menu pancake…she didn’t want the strawberries or candy corn…so we went with a funny face pancake instead of scary face pancake for her. We ordered 2 adult meals with drinks…as our waitress mentioned we had to buy a drink for kids meal to be free. When bill came, it had all our meals on it. We had to ask twice for kids’ meals to be removed. Manager was rude and said the kids’ meals were 2 seperate offers and only 1 is free because we can’t combine offers. There were 2 kids and 2 adults…the kids meals- per advertising- should be free. The manager was arguing with me and extremely rude. It makes no sense for 1 kid pancake to be free and the other kid pancake to not be free because one is scary and one is silly…tell me how insane is that???

We were at one of your locations in Amarillo, Texas earlier today. To be exact, it was IHOP #3003 at 1711 E-I40, Amarillo, TX 79102 (806) 220-2715!!! Although the restaurant was not busy as it would have been had it been during a “rush” time, we had to wait at least 15 minutes to be seated! There was just not anyone of the workers at the front desk area, and after looking around, the only place any of the workers could be seen was in the kitchen area!! As always at every IHOP that I have ever been to any where, the food was GREAT, OUT STANDING!!!! It was the SERVICE that was AWFUL!! The 1st set of silverware that the waitress gave me, had a fork in it that still had FOOD on it, but yet it was wrapped up with the “fairly” clean knife and spoon by a napkin!! The 2nd set of silverware was STILL NOT CLEAN, but I took a napkin and some of my drinking water and wiped it down. At least I was not afraid of using it after that!! After we finished our meal, we waited from 30 minutes to 45 minutes before finally almost screaming across the dining room to get our waitress’s’ attention, that we would like to get our ticket!! We have been to this particular IHOP before and NEVER has the service been so poor before!! Needless to say, WE WON’T BE BACK!! But we thought that you should be aware of how it is being run!

Good evening
I just wanted to let you know that my service at the ihop on allerton avenue in Bronx NY. Has horrible customer service the waiter was very rude and has absolutely no customer service skills what so ever.
He did not even greet us just asked ” are you guys ready to eat” . Then i ordered a pumkin coffee which i took one look at it and noticed something was wrong and told him i wanted regular coffee. Once he bought me the bill i noticed there was the charge for the pumpkin coffee and i asked him if he could not charge me because i didn’t drink it it was horrible. He told me ” no you ordred it if you didnt like it thats not my problem ” i asked to speak to a manager and no one ever came back.
Is this how a customer should be treated? This is horrible i will never go to that ihop or any other ihop ever !

To CEO Julia A. Stewart,
On October 17, 2015 I had registered as a guest at the Microtel Inn & Suites at 3740 Tanacross Dr, Fort Worth, TX 76137 for the ICING Women’s Event in Fort Worth Texas where Terry Seville Foy was the Host. However, I wanted to have a nice breakfast somewhere that I hadn’t been in awhile. So I started to go to the “Waffle House” but I chose “IHop” Store # 1457 instead, which is located at 3860 N.E. Loop 820 Fort Worth, Texas 76137 (817) 838-0022. Since I was a visitor from Ruston Louisiana and my first time visiting Forth Worth Texas, I wanted to spend some time in Forth Worth to get know the area. Since I did not have a rent-a-car I decided to take a nice walk to the IHop restaurant because it is right across from the Microtel Inn where I was staying.
Mean while, as I was walking I wanted to find an ATM machine to get money out so I can pay for my meal. So I entered the IHop restaurant and it was a little crowed but not to bad. I had asked a simple question to the cashier, if there was a ATM machine in the restaurant or somewhere near by where I could get cash. The cashier was very sweet and polite and she said that there might be one near the shell gas station but there was not a ATM machine inside the restaurant. All of a sudden the host (Randy) immediately decided to but in to the conversation very abruptly and rude as if to brush me off and get rid of me quickly for some reason. However, I was dressed professionally and I carry myself professionally everywhere I go.
Finally I found the ATM machine and I went back to IHop, as I entered the doors I had asked the cashier for a reservation for myself and she said that Randy would be the one to make sure my name was on the waiting list. Randy did not acknowledge me as a guest. However, I noticed when I was talking to the cashier a couple came in behind me and Randy acknowledged them and put their names on the list immediately. So I just looked at Randy as I approached him and he said ” do you have a name” and I said yes my name is Gail.
Most importantly, I wanted to see how long it would take before I would be seated. It took about a good ten to fifteen minutes before I was seated. But Randy did not call my name. After fifteen minutes I approach the desk where Randy was standing and he told a waitress to seat me. If I would not have checked my reservation he would have given my seat to someone else. Maybe it was because my skin was just a little darker than his or he was just having a bad day. I don’t know but Randy has to realize every black person does not steal or rob. Emotional and verbal abuse is one of the worst treatment anyone could experience. Sometimes it is not always the big things it starts with the little things. I didn’t do anything wrong and business is by word of mouth.
In closing, I have worked in customer service for over 20 years and I have learned when your dealing with customer’s it is not all about you. Sometimes you have to put a side your own bias, prejudice’s, and beliefs aside when comes down to serving and helping people. I enjoyed my breakfast and the waitresses were very attentive. If I were a restaurant manager , Randy would be mandated to take a re-fresher course in customer service and one written warning, third warning will cause for termination. I would like an immediate response back to me at your earliest convenience.
” He who water’s other’s water’s himself ”

Thank you so much
Miss Gail Frelot

The Springfield, IL , sunset Drive, location is beyond TERRIBLE with service. The Manager MAURICE is viciously RUDE & Past the measures of Disrespectful. He refused to give me the corporate number also. Not only does he disrespect customers, he disrespects & yells harsh things to the employees. After he disrespected me & called my so many names he did the same to the waitress (who gave me nothing but good customer service). Bottom line, that manager is A Mess & needs some disciplinary action. The employees under him had WAYYY more respect & Better customer service than he ever will.

I went to your location in Avondale AZ, off Dysart Rd. We were seated right away. Yet 15 minutes later, we we’re still waiting for an offer of water or anything else for that matter. The dining room was not full. The wait staff were busy cleaning a few tables. Yet, no one attemptef to serve us. I finally asked for a manager. The waitress response was “can I get you something?”, I replied, “yes, a manager”. Manager, finally arrived, and I advised that we’ve been sitting here waiting without so much as water, until I asked to speak with manager. He was totally dumbfounded or just lacked training on how to respond. I finally advised we were leaving, his reply” I could be your server”. That guy had sores or healing zits on his face and totally lacked social skils. We left. I’m NEVER going back and have will continue inform others of my experience. Get it together IHOP!!

I am at the IHOP in Stillwater, OK and I am experiencing horrible service. I asked to speak to a manager and the server, Laci told me it would take 30 minutes for the manager to come see our table. The server was rude and did not take our order until I asked her to. The wifi does not work which is crazy because I brought my laptop to study for mid-terms & enjoy a nice meal. IHOP is known for their wifi. I hope the manager is able to see this comment so that he can fix the servers here because this isn’t the first time I have received bad service here.

To whom it may concern;
My name is Rob Meredith I was employed at Lynchburg VA IHOP under Clyde brumint. And I have included an email below that I sent him for your evidence and understanding. I have been a DM for over 17 years for a major company that closed down. I turned down several jobs that I can’t get now because I came to give IHOP a try. I have never seen anything like what happened to me. Such immaturity and unprofessional behavior. I got a call after 8 hours being at IHOP that my wife had a mini stroke 2 hours away. Clyde said go buddy and I did, and after a couple of days Clyde let me go cause he couldn’t find my wife’s name at the hospital I was in. Are you kidding me? There are 11 departments in that hospital and I had all her documents and discharge papers. Basically he called me a liar, questioned my character and my integrity. Who does this? Who acts like this? I have been put in a financial devastation here. I am 47 years old, never been fired or wrote up in my life. I should have at least 3 weeks pay under my belt already and I haven’t even got paid yet to begin with. I’m told to go to labor board and get an attorney with all my proof and my story. This is ridiculous and I want you to be aware of this situation before I go further. Below is the email as well.
Regards,
Rob Meredith

Clyde,
I am in a real frustrated state of mind here. My wife IS STRUGGLING and the insinuating of my character and integrity is in question doesn”t sit well with me at all! Between our talk Monday and Tom”s and I talks and learning there,  I can”t see how you would think I”m not capable of this job. 

I have ran districts for God”s sake. So I”m not going to leave this mark on my name, it doesn”t sit well with me, your basically calling me a liar. So I don”t have to research the owners name and HR managers info I would appreciate you emailing me there contact information so I can show them Amy”s charts, paperwork, and discharge papers to show them it”s despicable letting me go.

I”m only getting  an a 8 hour check for Monday and that”s just not going to cut it for me, should be 3 weeks pay by now. this is wrong and you must know that. I was ready to come back Thursday so really only missed 2 days for a freakin mini stroke my wife had. 

ANYONE ELSE WOULD HAVE STAYED HOME, BUT I MADE ARRANGEMENTS FOR FAMILY TO BE HERE SO I WOULDN”T MISS ANY TIME. I also lost a chance for another job so I could come there, so do the math, why would I jeopardize this one????

So I would appreciate their information please So I don”t have to go to labor board on this. Its shame too, I see all the things I can do there.

A group of us went to IHOP (Cocoa, FL) after the club around 2am Sunday morning 9/27/15. Two of us who were on the same check placed our order and asked that the appetizer be put in right away. The waitress, Chantal, said okay. Well at 3:10 she came over and informed us that our food would be out after the group of people who had just came in. She forgot to put our ticket in. Needless to say, we walked out.

I went to IHOP for breakfast with my wife Sunday morning and we waited 15 minutes for our food. I told my wife this is why he stopped coming to IHOP. Also we asked the waiter to get ketchup and cholula as she was walking away she stopped by another table and got thier drink order. My wife and I waited for her to bring the condiments back and it took her moresponse the 10 minutes. I then told my wife that she never gave us any syrup and that she never came over to ask how we were doing and if it’s any thing else we needed. I seen another waiter go to the table next to us 4 times asking if it’s any thing they needed. My wife got so frustrated that she went up front and ask to talk to the manager and put in a to go order. The Manger came out and talk to her, but he had no concern to our issue. I then waved to him to come to my table so that I could talk to him as I was explaining that we stop coming to IHOP because of the same reason he had the same look on his face of no concern and that my complaint didn’t matter to him. So I ask for a manager over him he stated that it was not one, so I ask for the corporate number and he stated he did not have it. I will be expecting an email from someone.

I just wanted to inform you about the Conway, AR location. The IHOP there has the most disgusting drug-invested employees. No one knows what they are doing they are so high. The manager seems to allow her employees to smoke marijuana on the premises and smokes with them. There appears to be much nepotism and favoritism amongst the employees as well. How embarrassing for such a well known chain. It is absolutely appalling that you’d allow a business to be run like that.

I drove to the IHOP in Pascagoula Sunday evening to have dinner with a friend. We parked our vehicles and walked up at 9:50 to find the doors locked. A hand written sign stated they would be closing at 10. The sign illuminated on the building clearly states open 24 hours. Are there more hours in a day than I am aware of? Looks like a possibility of false advertising. Why have a sign that says open 24 hours if you are not going to be open. Unsatisfactory!

Your Charlottesville store is a very trifling and discombobulated store they don’t have a district manager and every employee they hire quits because the store is all out of wack the general manager as of now is a perv the cooks are nasty they don’t wash their hands or use gloves they pick the food that fell on the floor up and put it in the fryer and then put it back on the plates customer service is bad and the store is nasty the only reason they pass inspections is because they have informants from other stores letting Them know people eat for free everyday servers touch the customers food after this I’m letting the health department know that the store needs to be shut down and I will do everything in my will power to make it happen if you don’t and this is your Charlottesville va store

I went into IHOP for lunch today (South San Francisco) at the airport. I waited to place an order to go (ten minutes) no one came (I’m 6’3″) the waitress was a Hispanic lady named Martha. Another customer walked in and Martha walked over to help him (ignoring me) the other guy told Martha that I was first, she still decided to seat him. I told her to have a nice day!
Obviously Martha was not trained appropriately or at all! I wasted 15 mins of my lunch break. Martha was RUDE, annoying and focused on seating members (tips) instead of customer service. I’m not sure who hired this person, but needs to be terminated for not training her.
I am taken back that IHOP employs individuals like this. I better head to a better restaurant next time.

Went to IHOP in North Beach Miami on 9/7/15 and had the MOST HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE. We made several attempts to place an order via phone for take out to be rudely hung up 3 times as we watched the personnel pick from the parking lot!! Upon going inside and notifying the staff that we wanted to order but were hung up on the manager began to obnoxiously tell us that we hung up the phone (which makes no sense whatsoever) and then lied and said she picked up and put the call on mute!! We didn’t hang up and the manager became annoyed and irate with us . Instead of apologizing she yelled ,cursing and screamed she didn’t have to service us and to get out of her store. She pointed her finger in my face and flailing her hands In a combative fashion. We asked for her name And she refused to give , did not have on a name tag and then finally have a fake name of Maria. We requested a phone number for corporate and the store number she refused to give the info and said get it yourself!! This manager whose name I later found out is Estella is a liability to this establishment. I’ve never been more humiliated, disrespected degraded and mistreated in my life. I have placed a call to customer relations and have the entire situation on video which I intend on posting on social media.

Finally got a chance to go to the new IHOP in Laurel MS. It was bright, clean and beautiful. We were seated immediately The store was not too busy but the table and booth on either side of us were occupied. Servers passed us many times taking care of these customers. After 10 minutes or more I stopped one of them and asked if she might take our order only to be told they were in the middle of a shift change. Then she walked away and so did we. As we left not one of the several employees standing around spoke to us. We have no plans to return.

My family ( husband and our three small girls) and I just left the ihop @ 1300 South Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach, SC. We go to ihop every time we travel and Today’s visit was by far the worst. The wait was understandable, as they were busy bc of labor day weekend. The waitress was rude bc we weren’t ready to order our food as soon as we were seated. And as we were eating our breakfast, a roach crawled across the table and over my daughter’s food before my husband could kill it with a napkin. He immediately showed it to the waitress amd told her what happened. She just stood there for a minute and finally asked if my daughter wanted another plate. When she brought the food, We got to go plates and went to pay for our food, as my kids were officially grossed out by the roach. While passing for our food, My husband complained to the manager at the register. She just said “it happens” and gave him the receipt and said “next”. Not only was the service awful, but the roach, and the fact that even the manager didn’t care, that really disgusted me. I will not be eating at this particular ihop again.

The new IHOP in Laurel MS is horrible! We stood at the front desk waiting to get on a seating list for 20 minutes while the girls talked and took a to go order. Then finally we were seated and waited 25 minutes and no one even came to take our drink order. There were so many servers walking by and a few huddled up talking. After 35 minutes with no one bothering to get even a drink order we decided to leave. By the way they weren’t busy but seemed over staffed. I have been a server in a fine dining restaurant before and I just don’t see what the problem is with this new restaurant at all…everyone in town is already done with our new ihop. We won’t be back! I don’t expect this new store to stay open long with current management or staff.

I am absolutely disgusted by my visit to the Mt Airy store in Maryland. The manager Sam came to our table after the food was delivered cold. When he approached the table his attitude and the way he carried himself was repulsive. He looked dirty with greasy hair and a horrible smell of Marijuana and stale cigarette smoke. He looked like he should be in a truck stop diner. He was rude and offered to warm the food. We had already waited 40 minutes to get. The young girl waiting on us also smelled of Marijuana when she delivered the food. As if they had been outside smoking weed while our food sat getting cold in the kitchen. I have never be so discussed in my life. I am sad to see such a place as well know like that not drug testing employees and allowing such behavior at the job as well as someone that doesn’t seems to care about hygiene while working in the environment.

Jonathan Garcia August 31, 2015 at 12:17 am

I am a former server of ihop. Just today I had quit I would like to leave a complaint on store number 2124. The new ihop on 39th and rainbow in Kansas City Kansas. Without further ado I will explain complaint.. Working there I had gotten no break, there were times where I would ask for a five minute break at the least just to kind of refuel, and rest a little so I can get back out there and serve people and still provide great customer service and I was never given a yes for a break, the only time I was ever told to go on break is if I was working a double and even then I was told to clock out when eating a meal. so you are not compensated. Another reasoning for why I had quit is because we have this whole new ihop thirst goal going on, where all of the stores in a district compete for highest beverage sales. My store had one the fist week, I was granted a $50 incentive for being the top server in my store for highest beverage sales which motivated me even more to help keep my store at number one in our district.. Turns out we had won the second week, and the current manager (Seif) had put up on the wall announcing we had won the second week of the thirst goal but chose not to reveal the servers with the highest beverage sales, instead he explained that he wasn’t going to give out the incentive he was going to keep the incentive for the shortage of money that had came up missing in the cash register when the other manager was working there at the time (Britney Morgan) . If I didn’t win the second week then that’s fine but I know we won the second week and we all busted out butts to make sure we did everything to win that second week to hear that the money isn’t going to the ones who deserve it’s going towards the money drawer because of shortages. It sucks that the servers have to pay for it out of incentive when it was done on the managers clock I believe that is not fair and that that is what a manger is there for is to makes sure that does not happen on their hands instead of having it happen and choosing to take from others to fix a mistake going on in your restaurant under your watch. Another reason for why I had quit is because I’m tired of being talked down on and I’m tired of being yelled at.. I’m the type to accept constructive criticism so I can better myself and better myself so I can give people the opportunity to enjoy their dinning experience with us. But once you mess up on an order by accident and or forget to add something in or have any questions about something you get talked down to and you get yelled at.. I’ve seen plenty of servers come and go within the two months I’ve been there and its commonly because of this reason.. Mind you I am only human and I had shared words out of tiredness, anger abd frustration before quitting. But I want to be the one to speak up about it and let headquarters know what’s really going on at the IHOP on rainbow and 39th in Kansas City Kansas. I’m a big believer of treating your co workers with respect and doing everything you can to help one another and better one another so you look good as a team. And to make the work atmosphere enjoyable not like a burden like your forced to come to work everyday even though you don’t want to be there. Be these are by far the biggest complaints I have I would like to address towards corporate headquarters on store number 2124 if any questions, comments or concerns please feel free to reach me thank you -Jonathan Garcia

My son and I went to breakfast to the IHOP on Flamingo Road in Cooper City, Florida. We waited for 30 minutes to be seated , while half of the restaurant was empty. The excuse was that the kitchen was backed up and they couldn’t seat anyone else. I asked to speak to a manager 3 times, and no one ever came to speak to me. They told me that the manager was busy doing accounting. We left without eating, and you can be certain that I will never go back to that place. Several people said the same.

8/26 – My Husband and I are senior citizens. We frequent the I-Hop in La Verne, CA. Recently, we notice a sign posted “Senior Special. Buy 2 drinks, one entree, get the second entree for free” We decided to try it out. Being a “senior special” you’d think we could’ve ordered from the senior menu, like we normally do. But, the server told us we had to order from the regular priced menu in order to use the “senior special” What we normally order from the senior menu is the talipia fish and roast beef, which costs about $9 each. The same items from the regular menu are priced at about $13 each. The least expensive drink is coffee at about $3 each. We figured we’d go ahead and order from the regular menu, since we would be getting a free entree. All totaled, we expected to pay about $20, but were surprised to see the ticket that did not give us a “free” entree, but only deducted $9. Overall, we paid more for the “senior special” than we would’ve paid ordering straight from the senior menu, without the special. Talk about bait and switch. We brought this to the attention of the check-out person, letting them know “the sign reads “free” entree, not $9 off. He gave us the impression that he was telling a supervisor about it, but, came back and said “That’s what it is – $9 off. If you like, you can come back tomorrow and tell the manager about it. What??? – no manager on the premises. This is one of a few negative experiences that I have had at the La Verne I-Hop regarding “specials” . It’s like they’re making it up as they go along. This is the first time that I’ve ever posted anything like this,. But, enough is enough. I-Hop, you are officially on my crap list of restaurants that bait and switch.

No longer a customer August 25, 2015 at 10:43 am

I have been to IHOP on Sterling in Kansas City, Mo numerous times and each time I got the same results. The waiters and waitresses Do Not Care about the customers and neither do the managers or general managers spoke to them in several occasions and they will not replace your order after it’s been missed up I usually always get the Big Steak Omelette with hash browns on the side and either they forget them or put them inside also I had hair in my food and they only wanna compensate you 10% off your meal I have called the several times to get my order correct ed and been pasted around from person to person so my advice would be to NOT EAT HERE THEY DON’T. CARE ABOUT SERVICE OR CUSTOMERS!!!!!!

I have a friend that works in the one in Mishawaka Indiana and they get tips but a waitress that normally tips her is taking her money and mamagment doesn’t care and shes afraid to lose her job but this isn’t right a hard working person deserves every tip and time she’s there raising a child with two jobs no sleep just to get ripped off i don’t know who gave this guy the manament position but popping pills and shooting up with illegals in the back isn’t my kind of place to enjoy my breakfast /lunch/dinner its discussing to know workers eat off of plates after customers are done with them the one whose stealing gets away with murder and sexual harassment and the hard worker gets squat no help from management nothing just ignore and forget while she looses the money she work hard on I complained before and you guys send me to that dumb manager like what is that gonna do he’s the problem so why am I gonna go talk to the problem for?? I will keep on complaining til something is done to that specific location

The restaurant stold $24 by overcharging my credit card from a $76 bill which included a gratuity charge of $9 bring the total charge to my bank at $99. After a week a calling to speak with Ike Barakat, GM I was told that he’d investigate but would not give a full refund. I will be telling everyone of the theft that happened and this location durning a time where countless travelers were visiting the Kansas City speedway area for events. Who knows how much more money this company has stolen from their customers.

Went the IHOP on meridian blvd in reading PA and it was the worst experience ever when it comes to the employees. The waitresses look like they are on some kind of hard core drug slurring theirs words and giving ATTITUDE when asking what was it she was trying to tell me. Upon leaving I seen a few workers from the back of the house including a lady MANAGER smoke weed behind a bush across from form IHOP. It looked like an episode from the70’s show the were all in a circle passing it around. I guess if a “MANAGER” sits down with their employees to get high it’s ok for the employees to get away with it. Never again will I go to this IHOP again. I think It’s just as bad as going to MARIA’S on penn st. But at least over there the employees are responsible..

I am a resident of Inglewood, Ca. my family and I had just left the Double Tree hotel in Torrance the morning of August 2, 2015 where we attended our family reunion. My daughter and her four children were visiting from here Junction City, Kansas where her husband is stationed in the United States Army. We decided to have breakfast at an IHOP in Torrance once we were able to find the nearest location we arrived at 24631 Crenshaw Blvd,, Torrance, Ca. 90505.
Although it was a long wait we decided to wait it out. We were all sitting outside but where I was sitting was just to hot so I decided to leave my family outside and went into IHOP. I sat in the waiting area while in the waiting area I saw a Caucasian man with mingled gray hair come in he begin showing some pictures to the employees of IHOP as the communicated with one another. I thought to myself he must be a regular customer who is showing off some family pics.
As I recall while we were still waiting there was a lady who appeared to be Caucasian or Hispanic short in statue there were approx 2-3 IHOP employees talking to her and it appeared as if they were whispering to her for some reason, I thought to myself since she was alone maybe they will give her some special consideration because she was alone and find seating for her. I remember seeing her seated alone at a small table not far from where we were finally called to be seated.
I never imagined what had transpired prior to her coming into IHOP while the rest of my family were still sitting outside near the parking lot apparently they didn’t witness the course of events that were connected to what I witnessed inside of IHOP. When we finished eating headed out to the parking lot, suddenly I heard my daughter screaming, “Somebody hit the car!”
She was hysterical standing there crying with her four children. My daughter and I proceeded to go back into IHop and ask if they had a camera, when one of the female African American employees said oh is that your silver car the small car that was hit? And she said that was Raya, my daughter said how do you know that, she was surprised to find out, the employees knew all along that someone was responsible for hitting the car and was also told about the man who had witnessed to accident. Showing them pictures on his cell phone and asking if they had an intercom to announce that someones car had been hit. There response was NO!!! When she went to get the manager whose name was Blair, he seemed a bit insensitive when he said she came to them and said that she had hit the car. All I can say to that, you can hear them calling customers from the outside as well as inside how else would the people inside know then their party was being called? All the employees agreed that they knew the lady who hit the car and that she is a regular customer and when she comes in they will get her insurance information for my daughter, my daughter willing left her information. When the lady returned to IHOP the Manager told my daughter the lady refused to provide her information and changed her story, denying that she hit the rental car while it was parked. Leaving my daughter held responsible for the inconsideration of the staff at IHOP. Let me say we had enjoyed the food the service was great as far as eating was concerned. But when it comes to dealing with real life situations maybe the employees at IHOP need to be trained on empathy, simply by placing there selves in a situation such as this. In closing in my earnest opinion IHOP should compensate my daughter due to the fact that all of this could have been avoided if they would have just announced when it happened. Instead of trying to cover it up to protect one frequent customer who apparently lied, has resulted in my daughter filing a hit and police report and submitting it to her insurance company leaving the burden of a 500.00 deductible is simply outrageous really placed a hardship on her family visit for an enjoyable event deeply angers me. I sincerely hope and pray that someone takes the time to response to my complaint with the satisfaction of reprimanding the Torrance IHOP for their insensitive and unprofessional response to a situation that could have been avoided…

Thank you for your consideration in the above entitled matter…I am deeply sadden about the course of events and lack of resolution…

Just a complaint about the IHOP in Searcy, AR. I have got a few friends working there and they said there is black mold over the ceiling and in the kitchen. The manager said pipes have been leaking that it’s not a big deal and repainted the ceiling tiles. I have not ate there since I heard but I have got a few friends that have gotten sick eating there. Searcy is not a very big town and the word will get out fast. The employees have made complaints but they still have yet to do something about. I mean I wouldn’t want to be sitting at a restaurant table and have water from the ceiling drip onto my table because the ceiling tile busts.! This place already had bad service when I have ate there now this. If it don’t get resolved it will go viral
Thanks

I went to Bayshore NY IHOP. Horrible decision! They tried to seat us near the bathroom. I declined and asked for a table on the opposite side. The host took my name and said I would have to wait. I said that was fine but I asked why we couldn’t be seated in the table that was empty. The young man said that someone else was waiting for that table and gestured to a white couple that was also waiting. I said ok and we sat and waited. The young man told two other employees that Mary was waiting to be seated on the ‘brighter side’. I noticed they were looking at each other strangely but chose to ignore it. The white couple was then seated elsewhere which I thought curious. Two white couples were seated; one of them in the seats that we had indicated and requested initially. That’s when I said, “You have got to be kidding me.” The employee immediately said, “I just came to the desk. I didn’t realize you were waiting.” I replied that I heard the previous guy tell him and he looked right at me and my son. Additionally he walked right past us to seat TWO more couples. I asked to speak with the manager who apologized and said that they were new and he would speak to them. He was not interested in even hearing me out but he offered to serve us himself. I told him thank you, but after that shameful treatment, I wouldn’t feel comfortable with the service or the food. I guess he didn’t realize this was not the first time that I had a bad experience at IHOP. Shameful how they treat the black patrons. Always seating them by the bathrooms and servicing them last. I cringe to think what they might be doing to the food. Not the same server, but the same treatment. What kind of training are these people getting?

I live in Alexandria,La. I went to the iHOP here and it is horrible. There was a African American Manager i think they were calling her La La. She is always in the parking lot when i come at night time on weekends usually around 9:00 or 10:00pm before i go to the club. They said its her kids and grandchildren that is always out there with her and i don’t know if they pay for their food and drinks or not but i always see her giving them food in bags and drinks but i don’t never see them paying for it. My server was named Paulette she was the best, her friend that was working as a server named Brittany was the best too they were so polite and helped us with everything but the manager is always rude and talking about people like the customers and her employees. Every time i go she is never doing anything. Y’all need to do something about y’all’s managers I went in the morning time and the General Manager was walking by and grabbed napkins off of our table and said we couldn’t have but one per person i think that is not a good idea because when people eat they always making a mess or dropping food and we are going to need napkins. So i quit going in the mornings and started going at night and it is still bad business! Our food took almost 45 minutes to come out that is too long. Please do something about this business! I do not want to step foot back in this restaurant. Alexandria,La 71301

My mother and went into IHOP on 51st Avenue & McDowell in Phoenix, AZ, where I paid $23.00 and it was deducted from my account 4 days later. On July 8th that same amount was deducted again and 4 phone calls later to managers who were aware of the problem already, and almost a month of fighting I still have not been refunded. It only took them 4 days to deduct my account the 1st time but again its almost a month and I Have not been refunded,,, Isn’t that HACKING into your account and stealing…BE AWARE DO NOT USE YOUR CREDIT CARDS AT IHOP

Denied service to black family! I have video footage. There were 16 of us family members, it was roughly 2:30am on July 31st. Just finished a night celebrating our grandmas 90th birthday party. We walked into ihop at cascade station in Portland, OR hoping to get something to eat. At first the waitress said ‘when you have a lot of people you need to call in early and let us know before you come’ yes that is understandable when there are 16 of us. Then they said ‘it will be a long wait’ we said that is fine we will be patient and wait. Then they come back out and say ‘we can’t serve you there’s too many of you.’ ‘Morgan’ says we need to leave and keeps rolling her eyes and says a racial slur ‘Bye Felicia’

My last visit to an IHOP in Houston was nothing less than a nightmare. This nightmare happened on Thursday July 30/2015 at around 4:30 pm. I had just left St Luke’s hospital at the medical Center and took the Metro train to the Northline Mall area. I had just had a procedure done. I am disable as well as a diabetic. I was feeling weak and needed to eat something because my sugar was low. I live in Freeport, Texas and travel to the Houston Medical Center for treatments. I always visit IHOP in Lake Jackson, TX just a few minutes away from where I live. Once when I was in Houston my daughter took me to an IHOP on Crosstimbers this was over 6 months ago but I remembered where it was and since the Metro train left me in that area where I had to wait for my ride to come and pick me up I decided to get something to eat. When I walked into the restaurant, there was two tables already seated, and I waited a few minutes before I was seated. Finally, after no service for 15 minutes, a waitress came to my table to inform me that they could not serve me unless I paid up front because the manager had told her that they had had a bad experience with me before. I told the waitress that was not so because I had not been to this restaurant and that I needed to speak with a manager. Soon afterwards, a rude Hispanic male approached me in his mid to late 40’s. His unprofessional thug like demeanor, and loud accusations of me having done something wrong and to leave

caused me to believe that he was ready to assault me. I tried to explain that he had the wrong person. Anything and everything from there on out was instigated and twisted, as to make me a bad person. I feared for my life and I was very weak. I do not believe he was a manager because he sure did not act as one.

I feared for my life and I was very weak. I do not believe that he was a manager because he sure did not act as one. This person, in my opinion, did not have any experience as a manager and the title was too big for him I have never been so insulted and embarrassed. Had they called the police and accused me of being the vicious person they had had a bad experience with before than the police would believe them first and ask questions later. He rudely accused me of having been there before and causing a bad experience. I had no idea what they were referencing. (They never told me what it was) as a senior citizen and just having left St. Lukes hospital for an outpatient surgery, I was weak as well as scared. I am a resident of Freeport, Texas and I did not want any trouble. I am a regular customer of the IHOP in Lake Jackson, Texas. How can someone representing IHOP accuse an innocent person, without any proof, just because that person may look like someone else. I truly believe these people were probably not present when the disorderly person did whatever he did, and I probably resembled the other person a little and they targeted me for the confrontation episode. They were all very unprofessional. They were slanderers and defamatory persons. Accusing me falsely and maliciously of something, I was too far away to have done, and I still do not know what I was accused of. This experience needs investigating. Please inform me of what the outcome of this matter because this experience is very unsettling and it cannot stay that way. This group of individuals I hold accountable for the uncalled actions they took

I went to IHOP this morning at about 5am and my food was cold not cooked completely. I had my waiter send it back and the second plate wasn’t right again but I kept it anyway . During my visit the cook in training didn’t speak English and the host /waiter didn’t speak Spanish. Total lack of communication made my visit bad. A new cook should not work by them selves . I got a discount on my meal and was ok. As soon as I got home I wasn’t feeling right the meal I purchased made me and my company ill and I was upset. So be aware that this restaurants food made me and my company ill and to not eat there.

I was just at ihop in hackettstown NJ! I had the worst experience! I had my 2 year old my 15 year old and my 1 year old with me! My daughters fork tasted like soap but we were never approached by the waitress to see how things were. When our food was handed to us strawberry syrup was dripping off the plate on to my clothes. Our food was cold. To top things off a customer told me I needed to take my 2 year old out side. He was crying for about a minute. I consoled him and told my daughter let’s hurry and eat. My child wasn’t screaming he was crying. I told the customer IHOP is a family place and he made nasty remarks to me and put me and my children down. I had to ask for a manager which came and offered to move me and my family across the restaraunt. He said nothing to the man humiliating my family. I said we would just like to leave and the manager said ok that’s fine. I am shocked at the way the manager handled this situation. I will not return!

I will never go to IHOP on Lapalco Blvd. Marrero LA The waitress who was African American refused to wait on us, we are Caucasian. So I suggest IHOP should read the reviews from the Marrero, LA IHOP! or just shut it down! Unless they are requesting only African American Clients. So the best way to let people know POST ON YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE!!!! Because IHOP Corp doesn’t care

I have recently been discharged from the hospital due to so much stress that it has caused me to hurt myself… He yells at me and other employees daily! He makes us feel as though we are trash! He has sexual relations with employees and I know bc I personally heard him on speaker phone! One former employee had an abortion at his expense! He gave her money daily as well as the use of his credit cards.. He offered me a place to live when i was homeless in return of sleeping with him! Upper management has been contacted on several occasions and noting is being done! This is a business and it should be ran like one!! The food has roaches crawling all over it and it’s just being put aside and nothing is being done about it

I have been a customer for IHOP since I’ve moved here in 2013, the food is always good especially since I am a big breakfast fan. Not too long ago I stopped coming to IHOP on Dorchester road because of service and management on night time. The manager was not professional and was quite immature, I don’t know her name but she has red hair and a rude tone, she didn’t really seem to care about anything while she was at the table so I stopped coming to IHOP for quite some time but recently my niece wanted to go to IHOP before a movie and to try the new banana pudding pancakes, Mandy was out server and she made a very big impression on me and my niece, she was curtisous, attentive and always had a smile on her face. The food was great as always and I also noticed they have a new manager. She maybe of Hispanic decent because I heard her speaking Spanish to another table. She was very nice to us and she seemed like such a happy person compared to the other manager. She made us feel welcome and said she’d hoped to see us again and we promised we would return so I will be returning due to Mandy and this new manager. I am more than happy with my experience and will recommend IHOP to all of my friends and family. Keep up the good work!

Horrible, horrible experience at the Iflop in Winston Salem NC on university parkway. All I wanted was hot pancakes…. Short attack. Nothing too complicated. What I t the first time was cold pancakes…. The second time, still cool pancakes. Not warm enough to even begin to melt the butter. When I asked for the manager, I heard the staff yelling about me in the wait station and kitchen. The server came out and when I questioned her about the pancakes and said they had just been put in the microwave. Yummy, rubbery pancakes….. When the manager came out she lied and said they were fresh. So I told her what the server said about the microwave. The manager was rude, unprofessional, uncaring and should not in any way be in customer service. I called and reported it to corporate headquarters… Let’s see if I get any response back.

Was at the ihop in West Nyack N.Y and had a very bad experience . We went with another family who were senior citizens . We asked the waitress if kids eat free after 4:00 and she said that they dont do that when on line it says they do so we-placed our orders anyway and asked the waitress for two separate checks the waitress left and then a few minutes later some lady comes to the table and tells us that in order for us to get the 57 cent pancake deal the other couple would have had to site at another table. We asked why when we are two separate families and she is paying for her family and I am paying for mine they would not give us the $.57 deal if she got the senior discount. Then we asked for the manager her name was Sonya Martinez who was extremely rude. We also asked for a corporate phone number and was told there was no number. Was also told the owners name was brian whitch was a lie. Will never go to ihop again.

I called the Tunnel Rd location in Asheville, NC and a girl by the name of Melissa answered. I inquired about the 57¢ special to which she replied, “That ended at 4pm today!” Then she rudely hung up the phone. Disrespectful girl didn’t even give me the opportunity to tell her I still wanted to place several orders to go and NOT meaning the special they were running. When I called back to speak with the manager she answered again and informed me she was the manager. I politely commented to her about her nasty attitude to which she was unapologetic for. I have eaten at this place for several years, generally twice a month and have never received such horrible service!! I can guarantee I will never eat at this place again….AND I will tell every single person I know to NOT visit that location. Considering I’m in the hospitality industry and I deal with large groups of tourists, as well as local customers, who inquire about places to go to in our town, it’ll be quite a few ears the negative comments(s) will be reaching.

Went into IHOP in Riverdale ut this morning with my wonderful wife. After the waiter took our order, she brought it out, we stated that we would like toast instead of pancakes. So she brought us out some burnt toast and told us she would not charge us for it, how nice of her. Then we asked for a glass of water because none was brought to us. So we figured with the service that provided warranted no tip, but she took it upon herself to correct the receipt and put a 1 bellow the dollar sign to give herself a $10.00 tip and also correct the receipt making a 3 out of the 2 I wrote. The manager was nice and gave us the 10.00 back, but that does not correct the problem. I hate theives!!!!

Today is Sunday July 5, 2015. At the IHOP at Route 440 in Jersey City,NJ, there is red Hyundai Veloster that parks blocking the drive way into the customer parking lot. This particular entrance goes directly into the handicapped parking spaces, thus inconveniencing the handicapped, clientele.
This is not the first time that this has happened and my complaint to the manager on duty at the time, falls on deaf ears.
It seems that the same manager is on duty every time this red Hyundai Veloster is blocking the handicapped entrance to the parking lot, thus making me believe that this vehicle belongs to the manager on duty. If it does, that would explain the inaction by the manager.
This is such an inconvenience to the handicapped customer and a slap in the face by IHOP to all their paying clients, that I am sure that they just pass up on IHOP and go to the next handicap friendly restaurant…I know I did.
Perhaps if corporate were to respond to this blatant disregard to the customer, then this manager would not think that he has carte blanche on the parking at this IHOP.
I patiently wait for a response to my complaint from IHOP.

Fom a disgusted customer.

Went to the IHOP in Goshen Indiana with my family tonight. The waitress Alexis was very rude and rolled her eyes when my 12 yr old son asked what different toppings they had for stuffed French toast. Then they had some promotional pancakes that my parents wanted to try with the toppings on the side and the waitress told us that she would get fired if she did that because it was too tough on the cooks. When I asked to speak to the manager this lady with nasty gold teeth and neck tattoos came up to the table. Said she was the manager and then proceeded to tell my parents that IHOP will not permit them to put the toppings on the side, unless they wanted to pay $1.00 more. Really?!? So then I asked the manager what the cooperate office number was and she told me that she had no idea and that I would have to google the number and then she walked away. IHOP will not allow them to provide good customer service but they allow their management to walk around with uncovered neck tattoos? Also all the name tags were blank so I had to ask everyone their names. The only employee there that had a name tag was this guy name Austin. He was very professional and provided us with great customer service and even found me the corporate office number for me. He also refilled my sons drink. The female waitress Alexis and manager Deana completely avoided our table to the point where my dad had to ask for the check at the end of our meal. Did I mention the manager walked passed the table numerous times and even gave the check to the customers that came in after us?!? Rude rude rude. Bad customer service and unprofessional management. If could suggest something to the general manager of Goshen indiana IHOP it would be get rid of trashy unprofessional management and put someone like Austin her place. He made my families experience more enjoyable and he acted like he’s was truly sorry for the inconvenience. I will never eat at the Goshen IHOP when Deana or Alexis are working. It is the most upsetting that Alexis was snotty with my son. She is RUDE!!!

Then when we ordered our food they sent a pancake order that I wouldn’t have feed a dog had to complain to get it done right the servers were rude rude rude this was in Hampton va mercury blvd restaurant

I really did not have to take this step and I am going to go further if something is not done but I recently worked at
IHOP #3141
4936 Centre Point Dr
North Charleston, SC 29418

I only worked there for 2 almost 3 months after being fired in a actually ILLEGAL manner I love working at IHOP for the most part other than a couple of things most of the staff are wonderful however some of the servers are very lazy and DO NOT and WILL NOT do THEIR JOB, some of the cooks are rude, sloppy and incompetent on making sure customers get there food in a timely manner and not wait for 45 mins and my biggest problem is how a manager takes out there problems (from there personal life) out on the servers I was told when I was hired that you are to leave your personal life at the door but that is not the case with this manager but anytime I was unable to show up to work I had documentation backing me up and I was unable to come in because of a very bad double ear (both ears) infection to the point of I was unable to hear and mind you I HAVE A DRS NOTE I was told and I still have the text to prove it that this manager did not care whether I had a drs note if I did not come in I was fired and mind you it was not even that manager who told me it was a server and a shift leader who text me he could not even get in touch with me so if something is not done I will take this up the chain of command and I will have my attorney start working a case.

I don’t think this will work. It seems you don’t care about the customer complaints on your site. I see no apologies and no responsibility at all from you. I am only commenting here to give you one more chance to handle the Renner Rd, in Columbus, Ohio incident. Or at least to respond to it. The mistreatment of another human being to that degree is appalling.
When another customer discovered a homeless woman, she invited her to eat with them. Your server refused to serve them then and claimed they have dined and not paid for their meal before. They were willing, upset about it but willing, to pay for the meal upfront. Instead your server and manager had the police escort them out. Because they were too much of a wus to ask them to leave themselves. Not only did your restaurant turn it’s back on a human being in need (something you come to expect from corporations, sad as it is), but they intentionally blocked another person from helping her. I am disgusted at this. I am absolutely appalled that you won’t even stand up and say that your stance is not to downgrade another human being. That you will look into the situation. We all know you aren’t going to do anything about it. Because that would require work ethic that your company apparently lacks. But your silence speaks volumes, not only do you not care, you agree.

I went into our local ihop to place a to go order. I was discussing with the manager how I do not like the “fluffy” omelettes at waffle house (I was ordering an omelette from ihop). The manager of course goes on to bad mouth not only the omelette, but everything Waffle House. Anyway, I notice on the menu ihop puts pancake batter in their omelettes!! WHAT!! So I ask them to please leave the PANCAKE BATTER out of my eggs (they said they do it for texture). So I get home and take one look at my omelette and know something is wrong, but I taste it anyway. It was horrible. I called ihop and told them they must have put the pancake batter in when I explicitly asked them to leave it out. You ready for the reply I got?? The manager asked me if I just asked for no batter or if I asked for REAL EGGS??!! What, real eggs! It’s a friggin OMELETTE! By definition it is an egg dish. But not at ihop. They “use a powder substance that has many of the same things an egg has…kinda like an egg beater” along with pancake batter…this from the manager. I paid $17. For this trash. It is inedible and not only will they not give me my money back, they won’t let me pick something of equal value off the menu. They will remake the same trash for me. Suddenly a fluffy omelette from Waffle House sounds delicious! Real eggs in all their dishes!

Hi the iHOP at 889 MD 3North Gambrills, Maryland has racial problems. The manager Evelyn refused to take my call after I called in my complaint. The complaint is the cashier did not want to open the cash register (because I’m Black) and did not ring up my take out order. Actually they gave me my change out of pocket. I REFUSE to go back to that racist and red-necked iHOP location. Thank you.

I was told repeatedly it would be there I’ve went In and no pay cheque! And this was straight from Paul’s mouth himself he actually laughs at me now every time I call and ask for my flipping cheque do I have to take you guys to small claims court better business bureau the labour board and complain everywhere even Facebook I want my cheque now!

They put inexperienced waiters and managers. general manager mistreats employees speaks offensively antiprofecional … that manager is useless. the ba Restarante is down.

This happen at the location off of 4109 South Jack Kultgen Waco,TX .On Saturday 5-23-15 @ 8:25 am. My family went into the IHOP in Waco not only did they sit us in the back but no waiter ever came back. Only after I asked why we haven’t been served I was told that our waitress was on break . I asked to see a manager. After that we were asked by another waiter if we wanted drinks. My reply was no I had asked to see a manager. After several minutes the Manager (Bettye) appears to tell us that she didn’t know why we didn’t have a server and they tried to take our drink order twice and we refused (not true). As the only African American family in the restaurant I feel that we were ignored by the staff and treated very rudely by the management. Discrimination at it’s finest

I work for Ihop and I love the company but please get rid of the surveys. No one wants to take the time to go online or call the 800 number and most surveys are done by employees themselves just to meet the quota. That being said, it is unfair to punish employees for not getting enough surveys or perfect scores because several of the questions asked have nothing to do with the server at all but is aimed at the host or cooks. Bottom line, we think the surveys are asinine, unfair and a complete waste of time. I would suggest comment cards on the table or something to that effect. I am a hospitality management major and I see these surveys you are forcing us to promote as a complete waste of time. Suppose someone incorrectly inputs a number in the system and the server gets a bad score. What then? Or an enemy of wait staff or another employee wants the be vindictive and purposely call in a bad survey so the server is punished?

I agree with Garrett that the surveys are useless and inaccurate. I work at an IHOP that is by far the cleanest and most efficient restaurant I have ever worked in (I have been a server for 30 yrs) yet according to surveys we rank fourth from the bottom in our district. People seldom compliment, and when they do employees are not shown this positive feedback. Instead, they are berated, belittled,and/or punished in obvious and not so obvious ways for getting “bad” surveys. Many folks do surveys strictly for the free short stack earned, and some managers give instead a money discount on the guest’s check equal to the price of a short stack. I feel silly writing as I know from personal experience that IHOP Corp has no real interest in anyone’s opinions or issues, customers’ or employees’. Just wanted to let Garrett know I’m with him.

My two week paycheck is being held hostage in exchange for an apron. I had to leave town and my job UNFORTUNATELY urgently because of a serious personal issue and now that I am back I have not received a paycheck in the mail. I tried speaking with the area manager Yvette and she told me she would not give me my check unless I returned her apron even after I offered to pay for it. It was horrible and rude. I can say I am the most respectful person and did not deserve to be spoken to the way she spoke to me. As an “upper level” manager she should know better. This unit is a health hazard too, coffee is always overflowing onto the floor & the managers are unorganized, childish and overall very rude. All I wanted was my paycheck, I dont understand why they would want heat to fall onto their lacking unit. They are breaking the law, I am sure you can not refuse to pay a person for their work over an apron.

Myself and coworkers placed an order for the Ridge Rd store in Wichita , Ks. The food was mediocre, the omelets had nothing in them. Overpriced fruit in a child’s cup half full. Fries forgotten on another order. Mushy waffles in another order. We don’t often go too ihop. When we do usually it’s multiple orders. This was extremely disappointing.

I work at the IHOP in takoma park maryland and there’s this problem that seems to never be resolved. There’s a manager called Yeti who I work with on Mondays Saturdays and Sundays. I personally don’t have a problem with my manager Yeti, I respect him as my manager and do what I am told. I’ve never been one to be written up or suspended from my job. Once Yeti became a manager it seemed as if he had a personal problem with me. I have never been written up or suspended before until he became manager. There are times where he’ll say things purposely to me and only me so I can be upset. An example of this is when I am doing my sidework he picks at every detail which I don’t mind because that is his job, but when I see him check any other persons sidework he will just let them go even if there is something missing. He has suspended me and his reasoning on the paperwork was that I’m on my phone when he has told me himself I can use my phone as long as a customer isn’t watching. There are times where other servers will curse at him or yell at him and he will not say 1 word to them. I got suspended without being told why I got suspended and I had to wait 3 days until I personally had to go to my manager and ask to see the paper where I was written up. We have talked and “solved” our problems twice with our general manager but it seems like after a couple days it’s back to where it started. Our ihop had a meeting today and when my manager Yeti was asked to speak about any of his concerns and when he did he said things like “everyone needs to have server excellence” but stared at only me the whole time he was talking, everyone around me noticed. It made me uncomfortable and it makes me not look forward to working with him. I’ve been working at ihop for almost 2 years and I don’t have a problem with any managers or have been suspended or sent home by any other manager. I take my job seriously and like to work in a professional environment. When I work with yeti he uses any excuse to make me look bad in front of a customer when all I am trying to do is get my job done and make sure our customers leave happy.

My family visited the ihop in Destiny Mall – Syracuse NY . The server was a male that was wearing a managers tag but come to find out he was NOT a manager at all. He brings the drinks out and my wife’s mug was dirty so she asked for another one ,then he walks over and starts talking to other servers so my wife walks over and asked him for a mug and he says to her he was doing something (talking) so then he brings another mug puts it on the table and says “here i washed it myself” and that was the last time we saw him for now . Then we get our food well at least most of it never got 2 orders of crispy hash browns that we ordered.fast forward to end of meal when we were all done with all our food and still no hash browns so then the male “manager” server comes to put the bill on the table and we tell him how we never got our hash browns and he then says to my wife in the middle of the restaurant she was RUDE when she asked for another mug. Totally unacceptable of course i told him get away from me and get the real manager,manager was ok but his demeanor was like ok so yes he said sorry and it wasn”t right. then he took 50% off the bill Wow such a deal (not ) they should have paid me that most terrible service we have ever had at a restaurant.

On April 17, 2015 My husband, 2 year old granddaughter and myself went to IHOP at 47 Faunce Corner Road, N. Dartmouth, MA. We gave our name when we arrived and were told that there was a 10 minute wait. We waited and waited and then I started seeing people being seated that came way after us. So our 10 minute wait turned into a 25 minute wait and when we went to the desk we saw our name was crossed off as well as ten names after us. They never called our names and we were sitting right there and would have heard them. They told us that they would sit us next and they did. We ordered our food and waited and waited again. We were told that the kitchen was backed up. When our order came, it was wrong and we had to wait again and by then our 2 year old grandchild was getting antsy and we couldn’t enjoy our food at all. Very disappointing with the service.

Becky April 17, 2015 at 2:57 am

Hi my name is Becky and I worked at the IHOP in Bend, Oregon for about 5 months. My employment was terminated, but I am so glad it was. Working at IHOP was by far the most disgusting experience I have ever encountered. If you’re looking for illness, cheap labor, and passive aggressive attitude, this is the job for you! The entire time I worked, I was sick. The restaurant is so filthy because of the poorly working dishwasher, small amount of cleaning solution, and cheap hand soap; there’s germs flying off every wall. I thought in my time of employment I was experiencing serious allergies but it was only the disheveled environment. My managers name was MELISSA SANCHEZ. Melissa performed illegal acts while working. Exceeding labor laws when it came to employees who did not speak fluent English. I even witnessed Melissa standing outside smoking a cigarette while making the elderly Spanish only speaking service assistant deck scrub the garbage residue off the sidewalk in below freezing temperatures. Melissa also felt below certain employees who were above her age range. These employees that she felt below of included servers. These servers took their smoke breaks when wanted, never followed any rules or policies, just collected their tips and went home. This IHOP of Bend Oregon specifically had poor service, bad food, unsanitary machinery, and drug abusive- illiterate, “rude, and snotty” managers. With my lawsuit in action it will be for under compensation, harassment, menacing.
Reason(s) being:
In my time of employment I was abused. Scheduling was never with consistency, some weeks I would have 30-40 hours. Others I would have 12-20 hours. None of the additional scheduling was ever under my granted permission. Also, requiring all employees to work Christmas/Thanksgiving/New Years without additional compensation is almost non existent in the 2015 American workforce.
Also in my time of employment I was bullied. MELLISSA SANCHEZ would personally scream and shout and put her fingers in my face and tell myself that I am “worthless and lazy”. Melissa also called myself names such as “Fuck-face” “Faggot” and “Queer”. Again ILLEGAL action.
Even in my attempts of Management Notification to the district manager,
LONI ANDERSON she would not respond to my phone calls, emails, or text messages. Leaving me no choice but to express how I felt and be bullied, belittled, and pay cut because of my vocal expression of my feelings towards my work environment.
And finally menacing,
MELISSA SANCHEZ withheld my paycheck after my time of employment. Also providing false information for means if termination on my final “employee notification”.
For weeks after my employment MELISSA SANCHEZ would call my personal cell phone leaving vulgar messages that had to do with my sexuality, religion, and skin color. At my new job weeks following my employment at IHOP of Bend Oregon, MELISSA SANCHEZ would leave hand written notes on my car. These notes would say, “Kill yourself” and “It wont stop”
MELISSA SANCHEZ also broke the law by calling my new place of employment and expressing her feelings about myself and work history.

IHOP should be not supported by any American I know. For reasons JUST like this.

I would like to file a complaint on Sebastian at the IHOP location on 408 E. Bears Ave. Tampa, FL 33613. My friend and I have had three separate occasions where the service was very unprofessional. The first time he came and sat down with my friend and I and began to talk about his son and how he looked like him we had to ask for a different server because he was being so obnoxious. The second time he seated us with our menus and then disappeared outside he then came back and sat down again at the table across from us after 30 mintues of waiting for him he did not even ask us what we wanted to drink. We then began to pack up our stuff and he noticed and then jumped up and asked were we ready to order we just quietly left. The third time which was this past Sunday he was our server once again and he sat us down and took order and then on his way back to our table with our drinks as we were on our phones he says to us “y’all don’t have to text me I’m standing right here”. He made several comments like this and we just remained quiet. I asked for a box to put my food in and he took my food to the back where he could not be seen and then came back with the food in a box. When I got home I threw it away because I have never had my food taken to the back again by a sever and put into a box especially when he could not be seen. I am extremely unhappy with this service an both my friend and I will never come back to this IHOP location.

Sincerely,
Ashley S.

y es terday when I went to the IHOP on Broadway in Oxford I let an employee know there were crayons on the floor and someone could step on them and fall. Then I let the manager know and he didn’t think it was an issue. I think safety should be number one at a restaurant. on other visits they put chairs in the Iowa blocking the access for someone in a wheelchair and ada people who have trouble walking ., the management there does not seem to care about the customer safety. I have traveled across the country and this is the worst I hop I have been in as far as safety. someone needs to look into the operation of this IHOP because if this is the kind of representation of IHOP I feel so sorry for the IHOP corporation as a businessman I cannot believe that this goes on . I will be the first one to contact the news at the time when someone gets injured or the attorney gets involved in suing IHOP and its Corporation for failure to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. the man into man you have there is very unprofessional and I wonder how the hell they have a job.

My wife has been a waitress at the ihop in Brighton Colorado for a few years. Her store manager Sharon is making all the waitresses complete 3 customer surveys a week to make that franchise look better. Recently they failed when there was a health inspection and she got in trouble so she made everyone pay for her not doing her job. I twisted balloons there for almost a year and have seen her threaten employees, if they didn’t do the surveys they get their hours cut dramatically. She constantly forgets to order the right amount of food from the distributor and makes the employees go to the grocery store to buy the things she didn’t order enough of. I quit twisting balloons at that location because of the way she treated me and I wasn’t even a employee, Sharon treats her employees like they are worthless. If nothing is done to fix this I might be getting ahold of our local news station so they can do their own investigation on the blackmail that is happening at that particular franchise.

I called in at his store because i had to take one of my kids to the doctors .. I have my doctors note .. And i recieve a call that im no longer on the schedule .. He fired me .. But im sure calling in was not the reason .. The reason was because i am now workibg at the other store .. Which is still from the same owner john khave … Ive worked their for 9 almost 10 yrs and this is what i get .. Just for wanting a second job .. I feel yhis was very unfair and not right at all ..

Hi my name is Ashley and I was just terminated from a local ihop located in hickory NC the district manager John ask me to take the day off and then call him this morning which he told me I was terminated without any cause. I have never been written up and any day I have missed I had a doctors note which I have not missed many days. I had to leave work early Tuesday because my foot was swollen so big I could barely put my foot in my shoe yet I came in and opened and then requested to leave to go to my doctors appointment. My manager refused to let me go and got mad at me when I told her I had to go. She told me to leave and now I have been let go from my job. When I went to the doctor I had torn tendons In my foot. I tried to contact my manager for 2 days after the fact and he refused to answer my phone calls and after 2 days he texted me and told me to take the day off and call him and he terminated me. I would like someone to contact me regarding this. Because this is unfair I am always at work and on time and I even are willing to come in on my days off when needed I work 9 or 10 hour days and I get terminated without so much as a reason I will be taking this further and further up the ladder until I see results! He keeps getting away with treating his employees like we are dogs that he can kick around. He allows his favorites to call out every week without any consequences. While the hardest workers are being treated so poorly and being let go for measly or no reason at all So many other employees will vouch for the things he does daily. I can’t believe ihop would want someone like that in a management position if I hop corporate would look at the record hickory ihop has for employees who quit because he treats his employees so bad things should really change. I have so much more I can tell you that I’m sure ihop corporate should be made aware of.

The pueblo Ihop has the best cook I have ever seen. His name is Dennis Anaya. He has cooked for this Ihop for 15 years or so. Recently they got a new female manager that doesn’t seem to like him. Harrassing him alot. I went in tonight and found out she gave him the week off because supposedly someone complained to corp about burnt toast. I’ve heard her threaten his job before then work him all kinds of extra hours. He doesn’t complain when they need him to work extra hours because hw loves cookinh and has a heart for Ihop. If she fires this excellent dedicated cook… I will never go back

I currently work at an IHOP, where our shifts are being taken for people not doing the surveys! How can I force someone to take time out of their day to do a survey? I can only refer them and If I try hard and tell people about the survey , how do I get people to do them, how is this my responsibility? Do something about this corporate! Tri-Cities WA

I went into this restaurant tonight and was SEVERLY DISAPPOINTED! Their staff seated us immediately and then we waited 30 minutes for a server! Them after he finally took our order, we waited another 40 minutes for food and then I saw the couple that came 30 minutes after us get their food! I have two athletes that came to compete in the USATF National Youth Indoor Championships, who have been running all day and all they wanted to do was have a good meal. Your staff did nothing to resolve the issue and we left still hungry and VERY UNSATISFIED! As a visitor from out of state that is constantly traveling here, I can honestly say that I will NEVER make this a place where I come to again!

I recently appliyed at ihop in morris ,il and i quickly got an interview from the manager Josh. He told me to come in sunday and do paperwork. He gave me the job all i had to do is fill out paperwork. Well , i went in on sunday and Andrew said Josh was not supposed to hire me and they are not looking for anyone in that position . But there was a sign on the door coming in the resteraunt clearly saying “HIRING HOSTESS” . Josh is denying an involvement saying he didnt hire me . My sister emily was sitting in the booth behind us so she can verify this. they think because i am 16 years old , they can screw me over. Both of my sibilings work there and they are honestly degraded by the managers especialy Andrew be is rude and something needs to be done hopefully some one does something about this . My sisters come home complaining every day because him and the cooks . One of the cooks Alberto said FOUL things and she told josh and andrew and they did nothing . My father even went in to talk to the managers . Still nothing is done. He continously says rude things to her just because “he doesnt like her” she did absoulety nothing wrong . if you could help me spread this that would be great.

I’m amazed you had an experience like this so did I at the Crystal Lake ihop in Il. The situation is different but I have never felt so degraded and worthless at any other place I work. I was told to work off the clock. And had a really hard time with the cooks none of them speaking English the managers would treat me like garbage.

Was robbed at the Albuquerque IHOP March 5th.
According to police, was the 18th victim this year.
Owner claims he’s concerned, yet no warning to customers of any kind. Lost 10k worth of personal belongings. Inside job? Owner states it’s the apt. complex BEHIND restaurant. Last four burglaries happened in front of restaurant. Wouldn’t be an inside job would it?

This morning my daughter and I ate at the IHOP in Hayward, California on Foothill Blvd. After my daughter and I ordered our meal and man who obviously was schizophrenic entered the restaurant and sat himself down the booth next to my daughter and I and then said something to the fact that my daughter and I were lovers. He stared at us and made us feel very uncomfortable and he was loud and rude to the other customers. He then stood up in front of our table and took his hoodie off in front of us. The servers never said a word to him nor did they call the police. The server then took his order and after he then tell us that us white people (my daughter and I) are afraid of black men. He then told one of the customers to quit staring at him and the waitress never said a word to him. Then a customer and his wife was sat right next to him and the psycho man harnesses him implementing that he was a police and that he will show him what he would do. At that point the police should had been called but the waitress served his food! The psycho man then asked me what I am eating and I tell him I don’t know then tells my daughter that I am ugly. He was loud and just too disturbing and I felt threatened. While he was eating that is when the server finally went to the back to call the police. It took that long for her to call! NO manager was present cause I just got a call from him and he did say I just arrived and the police finally showed up. it amazes me that after the man leaved the workers that are men come out to the eating area. These servers were scared but from the beginning they should have offered my daughter and I another table to sit and the man with his wife. These women need training because next time something worse can happen. My daughter did not eat her food because she was very upset and scared and I ate only not to look at the man. It was scary and very uncomfortable.

Today wad supposed to be National Pancake Day and with my schedule I was unable to go until right before 9pm. When I arrived at the IHOP on Wilma Rudolph Blvd., in Clarksville, Tennessee, they told me that it had ended at 8:30. I’m sure they still had pancakes so why would they not want the donation that would have hopefully blessed someone in need. They also refused to answer the phone when I tried reaching a manger. I’ve never had such bad customer service…even at this location.

I recently saw an article about the cleanliness of the i hop in raytown mo. i had never noticed it being as bad as the article said and it is one of the few resturants in raytown so i went there this morning after sitting and drinking coffee for 45 minutes the waiter came out and told me they lost my ticket. when i asked then they haven’t even started it he replied yes they had started it but what did you order, itold him to charge me for the coffee and cancel the food. it is obvious that if they did not know what i ordered that they had not started cooking it. between the cleanliness the poor service and being lied to i think i will drive the extra 10 minutes to lees summit from now on. this resturant has a reputation for hiring not the best help. maybe if the ceo gives up her 500 dollar a pair shoes i read about in one other article they can pay enough to hire some good help.

As a regular customer at your Morris Illinois I hop I have witnessed a. Store manager named Andrew mentally abuse the waitresses I have seen one waitress constantly singled out the older lady she’s been there along time one of the best servers matter of fact I will only let her wait on us this man has NO business managing anyone I hope you can resolve this because this is a small town and once word gets out people won’t come there’s plenty of restaurant’s in this town seems like nobody cares what this man is doing nobody’s in authority is trying to either if he isn’t removed I’m personally going further there is a law against age discrimination he is making an example out of her to make other waitresses conform therefore making this mental abuse please see that this gets to the owner I’m sure he would not allow this

So my husband and I are went to IHOP on 38th &I65 and were told that we have to wait 45 min. Before we can be seated. Because they only have 1server , and the manager is just standing at the front counter talking to the host not assisting with anything. I don’t like Denny’s but I think I might go from now on at least we won’t have to wait 45min to be seated.

I hop on Route 50 Winchester VA, 22602. Myself and many other of your loyal customers have seen the mistreatment of the staff. Sabrina W, the manager that works there uses vulgar language to many of the staff as well as being very rude and not polite what so ever. The language she uses as a manager is unacceptable. You can just see the favoritism when she makes little side comments. Not to mention the cooks are completely racist, laughing at the servers when they can’t understand the cooks speak. My friends daughter works there and she tells us all the time about the inappropriate language and rudeness. She feels as if she doesn’t get enough credit for the work she gives out. I believe Sabrina should get fired or at least talked to. No one should be treated like that.
Will not be wasting my time eating at this specific Ihop again.

i was recently terminated from ihop for who knows what reason, but my night manager treated her night staff like crap. She has cursed at me and a few other of her staff. She continuously talks about certain workers to her ” favorites ” and she seems to not care how she treats her staff. I would honestly never want to work under that type of management beings that i am only 16. She has told other staff members that she could ” strangle me ” for making mistakes. I am much more so glad that i was terminated, just hoping my next job i am not faced with these kinds of working conditions.

My colleagues and I go to IHOP to eat before work all the time because it’s near our hospital. We always would have a great breakfast/lunch there. But this time I went, I had left my IPhone there and when I went back to see if somebody had returned it, the manager Willis was very nice and handed me my phone. However, the DISTRICT MANAGER, Jack, was there as well. He seemed pretty mad that I came back for my IPhone 6. Was he mad at the fact that I came back for my phone so that he could not keep it? I don’t know. I ask him a question and next thing I know, he’s yelling at me telling me to leave through the front door. This is very unprofessional for a DISTRICT manager. This experience DEFINATELY changed my view on IHOP. I will be telling my colleagues at work about this and we will not be supporting IHOP anymore.

I do not know if IHOP Corporate takes these comments in consideration, but I hope they do because they definitely need to hire more professional DISTRICT MANAGERS, ones who do not YELL at their customers.

The worker smelled like marijuana and cigarettes! I lost my appetite and me and my husband walked out. Just before we entered the worker approached us about selling us illegal movies and he smelled like marijuana which followed him into the restaurant. To my understanding this worker has had previous disciplinary acts with the police up at the site(rainbow & spring mountain -las vegas Nevada) during business hours!? I hope you understand who your company hires represents you as a whole. There are way more experienced non marijuana/illegal movie selling young people who would better qualify unless that site needs workers just that bad. The waitress on the other hand was pleasant and informed me to make an online complaint. The worker’s name is Brandon Southall. Please note that this experience has gave me a new not so good outlook on this location. My husband and i are appalled and will NEVER visit that location again.

On Sunday, January 25, 2015, my family and I (my wife, 90 year old mom, 82 year old aunt and our 30 year old son) went to the IHOP in Germantown MD. My mom, aunt and I had the sunny side up eggs, bacon and pancakes at about 11 am. At about 9pm I came down with violent “gastrointestinal distress” and severe chills. By the next morning I had lost 6 lbs. The next morning I found out that my mom and aunt had begun with the same issues around 4am. My wife had an omelet and my son has eggs over medium with blueberry pancakes and they had no issues.

I called the health department and they sent an inspector to the IHOP (good for them) but by that time all of the eggs that had been standing out too long had already been used.

When I called the store the manager on duty (Antonio) referred me to the little asterisk about “undercooked eggs” etc. At least he didn’t offer me a coupon to come back.

What an enjoyable breakfast! Yesterday my husband and myself went to a fairly new IHOP in Silverdale Washington. It was a legal holiday and very busy. We gave our names and sat down expecting a bit of a wait for a table. It wasn’t three or four minutes and our names were called. To make a long story short we had a very good breakfast experience. The waitress was friendly and attentive though very busy. The food was served quickly and was a generous amount and tasted very good. Since the restaurant was busy with no available tables most of the time I watched the management staff as they helped even cleaning tables. My husband and I eat out frequently and we thought that this restaurant deserves to be acknowledged for the great job they are doing.

I’m sure my comment will go as unnoticed as my broken elbow did to my GM and manager. I’m a new server at my local IHOP location. When I was hired I was told I had 2 weeks to get slip resistant shoes which was fine because I’m a single mom who had been unemployed since late November. I started working and training on Tuesday January 6. My first day of taking tables was the second half of my shift on January 10. The incident happened at approximately 2pm when coming out of the dish room. I was in major pain, but I put the order in I had just taken so my customers didn’t suffer, asked a fellow server to keep an eye on my tables and went back to talk to my GM and manager about my injury. No accident report was written, at least not one I had to sign, no option to go get my elbow checked out, nothing. I was allowed to regain my composure because I was in a crazy amount of tears, and sent back to work. I got off around 5:45/6. I was in pain but knew I didn’t have the money for a doctors or hospital visit so I toughed it out that night and came back at 8am as scheduled. I was in so much pain while ” training” that I asked if I could go home. I iced my elbow that night and woke up the next day in sever pain. I had a few appointments that were mandatory that morning and then went to my cousins house who basically forced me to go to the ER. After almost 5 hours in the emergency room I was told I have a broken radius and would need a cast and not to use my left arm until I got cleared. I’m not allowed to work by my GM’s standards, so not only am I paying my own doctors bills but I’ll also more than likely lose my home and everything else in it. Thanks IHOP!

I am writing about an experience I had on the morning of New Years Eve. My son, who just turned 11 and loves IHOP, had been looking forward to his birthday breakfast. We arrived at IHOP around 8:50 am and were seated promptly. Before ordering, I opened this email to show the waitress the birthday coupon.
She apologized but told me it needed to be printed out. After some polite back-and-forth, I could tell she felt horrible about it but she had to follow company policy. I asked to speak to the Manager. Within a few minutes he came out to speak with us. He politely reaffirmed that the email was not valid unless printed. I asked if he could print it for me in the office, to which he replied “oh, no, we’re not supposed to do that.”
I explained that every other chain restaurant allows coupons to be presented on a smart phone. It’s just a matter of a code being rung in with the check. I also commented that not everyone has a printer at home, to which the manager suggested I go to Staples or my local library. REALLY??
At this point I thanked him for his time and left the restaurant. My son and I ended up going to a local breakfast establishment that values customer loyalty. I will never set foot into an IHOP again.

My point is this: I did not follow the rules on the coupon, and the store did nothing but follow company policy, despite its ridiculousness. I’m not so much complaining about the managers unwillingness to bend the rules, but hoping you will “get with the 21st century” and realize printed forms are all but obsolete.

What is terribly ironic is that IHOP sends me email coupons almost weekly. Isn’t the intention to increase traffic into you stores? It worked. You were going to give my son a free breakfast anyway, so I wasn’t looking for an additional handout. I was in the store as a paying (for mine) customer and your policy drove me away. I certainly could afford to buy my son a $5.99 breakfast, but I chose this opportunity to show him how to stand on principle.

I take responsibility for not reading the small print, but your company’s antiquated rules and the store’s lack of flexibility to accommodate an 11 year old boy on his birthday speak volumes about your company’s values.

I really hope that you guys reconsider your plans of closing down the Ihop #4608 in West Hempstead, New York. Its been here over 20 years, its been the first place my family and I think about going to when everyone wants to get together, The staff is super friendly, it almost feels like I’m in the comfort of my own home surrounded by family. They give their customers so much attention and you can just see they love what they do. The food is delicious and there just isn’t anything bad to say about this place. I don’t mind waiting on the weekend as I already know the wait is worth it. I’ve tried going to other Ihops but its just not the same. This place has been our go to spot for a very long time and I just hate to think It won’t be there anymore. Please reconsider as this would definitely sadden many more people that visit this place weekly.

I have to say ihop has one of the best breakfast items that I have eaten in any state I’ve been too. With that said, I decided I wanted to work for the company. So in 2012 I started working at a location in hays Kansas. The best ihop I had ever worked for, #2045. I worked there until I moved to Wichita KS in late 2012 where I was lucky to have gotten a job at the best ihop in kansas, #5448, I was told. Best sales, best tips, nice friendly customers, the whole nine yards. I have worked for this store for almost 3 years, and let me tell you; the money was good and sales were high yes, but the customers were so disrepectful that I went home and cried because the manager just brushed it off and told be thats how it is. I don’t care who you are, but that is not how guests should be acting at a restaurant unless they were mistreated before.. I was working second and third shift at the time and I noticed every table I served and that came back started to only request me or two other servers. That was the only time I had nice and friendly guests. I cannot say that I enjoyed my job for the most part. Long hours, cleaning up after other staff members because the management was and is too lazy, staying late every school night as a high school student was crazy but the best part of it all is the family I made working at ihop. Even though everyone hated the management and that the g.m. at the time, which is our d.m. now, said “corporate wants us to do it this way”. I have poured money into that store, they say we have to buy our own shirts because the place that makes the shirts did not make anymore, I had bought at least four white shirts and three blue shirts for that specific location. But currently they just switched back to the striped shirts to get the store ready for a training store. Anyway, in the summer of 2014 i went back out to hays to help out there and ended up managing. I was there for about three months before some family issues came up and I had to move back to Wichita. I had to wait three weeks before my d.m. could get me “squeezed in” at the same ihop I used to work at, which I had been in contact with the g.m. as she had told me she needed servers. I talked with my d.m. one more time and finally got a job there. For a while I was working whatever hours I could get and the g.m. was trying to put me on first shift all together but she said the “stipulations of my return was to work whatever hours the store neefed me the most”. I know this was not her choice as she told me she was trying to get me on first shift because she wanted me there to help. I just wanted to make enough money for bills. After awhile, I got a call and it was the d.m. she wanted me to go and speak with her at another location, #5320. I went and we discussed me managing there, same pay as I was making out in hays. They told me that I had a lot of work, servers were not completing sidewalk or tableware correctly and they were all lazy and needed to be retrained. I went in on my first day, Saturday night third shift, expecting it to be chaos. Instead, I learned that everyone was new and didn’t get trained all the way. It wasn’t their fault that they had no clue, I know what that feels like so I did everything step by step with them and we worked together to get better. Longer story short, that personal family issue got worse and to me family is most important, I ended up quitting, but before that I noticed my pay wasn’t the same I was getting in hays, now that I had quit and gotten my last check, the g.m. said she didn’t remember that agreement, and that they couldn’t pay me the same because it was a different town, different store and the owner wasn’t going to pay me that amount. In Kansas a verbal agreement is a real agreement, I can take them to court if I wanted to. But I’m not like that, I just want corporate to know how bad these people are making ihop look. I would of loved to go higher up in the company but I just cannot take the rudeness and selfishness of the management and owners of this franchise. I Will not tell people to work for your company In this state or ever. I will only go to eat there to see the my servers and cooks. I think ihop should do like an undercover boss, because the way that those people run your stores and set an image for your company is not how to run a business.

Today we visited the IHOP on north McCarran in Reno Nevada by I-80. When entering, I noticed cigarette butts on the ground and in the two flower pots by the front door. We were seated, and we waited 15 minutes and no one came and took an order. I also notice a lot of paper trash and dirt on the floor. The restaurant was not real busy, maybe 5 tables occupied in the whole restaurant. Was real disappointed with the service and me and my wife got up and left for another place to eat. Will not be back to this location. I have eaten at a few IHOP’s but never had a bad experience before today. This location needs to be reviewed by upper management and make some changes. Cleanliness needs to be a priority along with quality of service.

Hello,
On December 13th I went into IHOP located on Irlo Bronson in Kissimmee, Florida! Though the service was not great and our food took forever to come out, the worse part of my visit was the Restaurant double charged me for our bill. I phone the Restaurant a couple of days later when I noticed the double charges on my bank ledger. I spoke the a supposed manager, who took my information and said a GM would contact me in the morning to reverse the double charge and credit my card.; 4 days later, still no call. I personally went into the restaurant to speak to the manager! They again told me that the GM had already left for the day and apologized taking my information again and promiding to have the GM call me to correct the situation. On Saturday, Decrmber 20th still no phone call, so I phone the restaurant yet again. Spoke to another manager Sarah Alam who after my rant apologized once more and promised the the GM Patrick Wallace would phone me the me the day at 8:00 am…well, needless to say it is Sunday, December 21st 2:00 pm and still no call. I am so done with IHOP and their unresponsiveness to their neglect. I will lot return and will run the word that they double charge customers. I will be following up with a call to the corporate number listed and an email as well. I refuse to double pay for crappy good and service!

About a month and a half ago I took my family to the vestal IHOP, which we have eaten at several times. The service was absolutely atrocious, I had to ask about 4 times just to get a glass of water for my wife and I. I was sitting where I could observe the kitchen and was amazed by the amount of meals that sat at the pass getting cold as the table side staff giggled and joked and checked their cell phones. I personally watched my meal be set on the pass and it was 23 minutes before it was delivered to my table. Three other customers had entered, ordered and been served before I could even get a Glassecond of water much less my now cold meal. I submitted a complaint that evening as my bill was nearly $60 and honestly it wasn’t worth $20. I was contacted via email by the store manager and asked to call her, I emailed back and explained I am a business owner and work a lot of hours rarely paying attention to the time and it would be easier for her to call me when it was convenient for her. I never heard from her or anyone else about this matter. She said in her email that this issue is very unlike ihop and that they aim for customer happiness, I beg to differ. I expect I will never hear from anyone about this matter and that my complaint will be swept under the rug. I have not been back to ihop and don’t anticipate we will be any time soon, I also have told my friends and family about this event and urged them to avoid this restaurant. I understand that my family and friends are a small fish in a huge pond but if I ran my business this way and handled my customer complaints this way I would either be sued or run out of town

Hello, on Friday, November 22nd I ordered a take-out order from IHOP for two omelettes with special pancakes. I have checked my bank account, and the order came to $28.27 because of the special requests that I made with the order. I picked up the order and drove home and to my dismay, I had gotten none of what I requested. I was livid, because this seems to happen more and more. I called the restaurant at 1301 Kildaire Farm Road, Cary, NC 27511 and spoke to the manager, who apologized profusely and offered me one of two things – I could either receive a refund, or be placed in “the manager’s book” so that I got a complimentary meal. To my eternal regret, I chose the latter, and went on my way believing that I could believe what I had been told. I know that I wrote down the name of the manager, but if since I know the date and time that I went to the restaurant I figured I could track down the information when I called the restaurant, on the chance that the manager who had helped me then was not on duty today. When I called the restaurant, I was transferred to a man named “Miguel” who told me that (1) he had no record of me being in “the manager’s book” and (2) he could not help me figure out who the manager was on that day because he was busy. Now my blood is boiling, because not only do I not believe he took the time to look, but he was blatantly disinterested in helping me. So thanks, IHOP, I will not visit you again, and I will post this with corporate and on facebook.

I worked in you store in Baton Rough on college st. I worked for this company in north Louisiana before here. This store is the worst I have ever employed at. After being here the D.M. question co workers trying to get them to say I was racists . Need to say this was job harassment. Next the management went as far to spread it around the store and told any new hire about considering I was a racists . The manager and some co-workers spreaders that I was a whit suppresses working there. This was embarrass to me and my family. Through all this I held my head up and continue to work in this harassment work place. Things become worse the manager there told me to my face that I was a grumpy old bitch not once but continued to do this for months. I worked hard to over come the harassment from him and co-workers but it didn’t stop . Things became unbearable and I had to quit.This was the D.M. way of getting rid of me and the manager too. The manager at this store is very touching feely man. If you let him make remarks sexual to you or touch you things went to your advantage. Asking a woman what size bra you wore to when you got a new one was what he enjoyed. More or less setting in his lap in his office taking pictures and touching your when he chooses got what they wanted. Remarks made by him saying he would love to see two employees get together is embarrassing to me. But he was allowed to do this and what he choose to do..To continue to work in a harassing work environment I quit. This company lets people do this to employees and turns their back on it. I am ashamed to work for I Hop and feel for the older ladies who are submitted to be harassed on the job as I was . Your D.M.s are not doing their job and the management are the same as them.

I recently quit ihop in columbia mo where another post from Mr Glenn Thacker was working. After 3 years of verbal abuse and threats from the gm o couldn’t take anymore. There have been multiple incidents involving employees doing some major no no’s. We still have a dmo who has threatend 2 servers there which happend to be female raising his hand to one. Same dmo robbing tips and many witnesses. Had another dmo that groped servers for months would stuck his pens between their legs and start wiggling and no action was taken by Eddie Barnes. We can’t hold good employees or management because of him and his corrupt lazy behavior. I threw my back out at work less than 2 weeks ago worked all week like th that and the night I quit we had liquid egg all over the floor. The cooks had been slipping and sliding regardless of out non slip shoes but I get my ass chewed for attempting to clean up the mess when the business slowed down despite the dangerous situation for the prior hour. I ended up hurting myself more during that. The only comments our high and mighty gm had was who did pulled the mats? I don’t care what’s going on u hugs leave them Their. After I told him my intentions all I got was I’m fucking tired of u and ur whining. Ihop in columbia used to be a decent family oriented respectable restaurant now it is leso popular than waffle house.

My girlfriend is a server at the IHOP in Lumberton, NC location. She is being punished over a police report that was supposedly filed against her with no valid proof. Now she is only allowed to work 2 days instead of 5. Because she’s only allowed to work on the 1st shift. That the manager doesn’t work. The manager has said hateful and vulgar things to my girlfriend, and the General manager at the time failed to resolve the issue. This is a horrible situation because she has two kids that She is trying to care for, but because the management is trying to save their own jobs, same with other servers, no one is speaking the truth on the matter. This is providing for an unsafe work environment, and is defamation of character. We are looking into filing a law suit over this location.

I worked as the ihop in Columbia Missouri. One night I was attacked by a woman, from behind, and I only raised my arm up to block her and said’ you’re going stop hitting me, bitch.’ I worked the remainder of my shift(even receiving a note from a customer that said that though they could tell something was wrong I was an amazing server.) When I returned to work I was told that I was suspended until I could meet with the manager and the other employee. In the meeting I tried to get the opportunity to explain my side but the manager and the other employee kept talking over me. She told him I punched her in the stomach.
I immediately requested review of the security footage.
A few minutes later I was told the manager was unable to get into the system to pull the footage, but after calling the tech guys would review and make a decision.
I was called back into ihop e few days later, having to walk across town to meet with the manager, who informed me that I was terminated although he claimed to never have pulled up the video.
The excuse was that I used offensive language, yet several times over my employment here many worse things were said in front of guests, many worse things were done in front of a full house, and every one of those employees kept their job.
I asked for the video several times.
I Ann currently working on a lawsuit,but to tell the truth,I loved my job,and was one of the best there at it, I loved my co-workers(except for a handful of them) And I loved a large percentage of my guests,and more than anything would love to judge my job back.
By the way, the server who attacked me? She later lost her job at ihop for attacking someone else!

Have your lawyer force them to come up with the video or admit they don’t have or never had one, Then with the informaation they have about who filed the complaint file criminal assault charges against the bitch! After winning that the civil suit is a cake walk.

I am a regular customer at Ihop in Terrell, Texas,,, I have noticed a lot of turn over and change not for the better. I come during the week, and the food is hot, and usually doesn’t take very long, on weekends my family and I go it takes sometimes 45 min to get our food and it’s cold. The server’s , some are out of uniform and have on jogging pants and running shoes, some have no belt on, and shirts are untucked. Very few, look professional. They don’t realize appearance is part of tip. Randall, is a very good asset to this place. The other manager’s need to be more like him In professionalism. I hope you will get the problem’s fixed in this restaurant. So we can continue to eat here.. If not we can go to somewhere else, I have noticed also, not as clean as in the past.

Thank You

I currently work for the ihop in Victoria Tx,I have to say it the absolute worst ihop I’ve ever worked for..
between the mistreatment by management and the total lack of respect for there employees. .. the upper management in the store is to say the least ..incompetent. .the cooks are very rude to the servers to the point of tables walking because cooks will not give servers there food in a timely manner. . And customers walk in on a daily basis and ask what we are out of today because they know we are always out of something … there are husband and wIves working together as,well as mother n daughter n laws .. and the worst part is they are management and working the same shift … so if u aren’t married to or related to management. . You get pushed to the side….. there are alot of us working there who believe we are being treated unfair. ..
on another note I do not know how in the world this place passes health department inspection. .
Between our reachin coolers not working and having to keep milk,juice, cream etc.. on ice.. to improper temperatures and improper time and date labels .. to I’ve never seen a cook in the restaurant wash his hands!!!!! And the dishes come out of the dish room just as dirty as they went in!!!
Well these are just a few of the things that need to be looked into. .. I really hope someone in the corporate office steps up and takes an in depth look into this because the franchise owners won’t! !!!

my name is Deborah Salisbury. I work 1664 South University Drive Fort Worth Texas ihop number 1928. The manager here is just awful to everybody she constantly cusses at the servers and the cooks very loudly saying very negative things all the time. She forces us to use unnamed products when she runs out of food. Every Sunday( I work graveyard )there is ALWAYS a list of 86 items. she never order enough she tells other servers which are friends of her that it is because it cuts into her profit. I’ve addressed this issue several times with the other managers to no avail. On one occasion I absolutely refused to go behind her trash can to get generic apple juice and was told to watch my attitude! I’ve been with ihop for almost 7 years and I’ve never been treated this poorly by manager at any store. The manager is friends with the owner of the stores so she has been getting away with this behavior for many years. I do not know what to do I don’t know who else that I can speak to.she is the general manager her name is Jamie Fluary. I make extremely good money at the store and I don’t want to leave. But I feel that this is the only thing that I can do. I would like to talk to someone further on this matter if you could call me 817 378 **** again my name is Deborah Saulsberry. I thank you your help.

Ate breakfast at IHOP in Temple TX & we waited over 40 min for our food. When we finally were able to get our waitresses attention because she never once came by to check on us since we ordered we told her we had already been waiting 4o min & a large party next to us had already received their food & we were seated & ordered before they had been. Within 6 min of us telling her this our food came out & she said she would give us a discount. She sent manager, Corey over because she did not give us anykind of discount & we explained to him about the wait he said the food came out within 6 min of when the ticket was turned in. Again we explained to him about the wait & other customers received their food before we did when we were there before them. Again he said I don’t see what the problem is you got your food within 6 min of when it was turned in. I told him then why was he arguing with us we told you what happened & she offered the discount when it was clearly her fault. He was rude and being a smart ass & I asked him why he was arguing with us. He said I don’t like to give away free food. We weren’t asking for free food. Clearly there was an issue with the waitress for not turning in the ticket in a timely manner. So instead of trying to resolve the problem for any future issues he wanted to argue with this. I told him we would pay for the meal but we would never return again. I just don’t understand what kind of training IHOP has for their managers that allowed him to treat and talk to us the way that he did. We go there once or twice a month and have never had issues or been treated the way that manager treated us.

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.

We were greeted by Gasuel and waited on by Lucas who were both welcoming, pleasant, professional, and accommodating. I asked Gasuel if we could be moved to a booth, as we were at a small table and felt a bit crowded. In spite of it being very busy, Gasuel made sure we were happy where we sat so he found a table for us. I wanted the same server and Lucas and the other server worked it out. This was really kind of both of them (I did not get the other server’s name). The service was wonderful; however, the food was very disappointing. I have been to several different IHOP restaurants and have NEVER had a problem. My bacon was burnt (not subjective, it was clearly burnt) and my pancakes were dry, not appetizing, and presentation was to be desired (they were so dry that a piece split and the top layer of the pancake separated from the rest of the pancake. The pancakes were not at all light and fluffy and always order this same type of pancake at other IHOPS.) This was my first visit to this IHOP. I sent the pancakes back and they were returned upside down as though they were just tossed on the plate. Not once did the manager come by to apologize or even acknowledge that there was a problem (disappointing). Even when we were leaving, the manager did not offer an apology. Lucas and Gasuel were really the only reason I did not rate the entire experience as 1’s on my survey. We visit Gainesville every 2-3 months (our daughter attends UF) and will think twice about eating at this IHOP.

I had posted on the local ihop Facebook page saying So I went to this ihop the other day and wanted the new waffles and you ran out of all waffles like the mixture in general. I would like to try the waffles but I don’t feel like spending anymore money as it is I had to spend more than I planned because they couldn’t substitute anything for those prices. Then on top of that the following days I had extreme stomach trouble probably food poisoning I couldn’t even work at my job properly cause I had to keep rushing to the bathroom. This place is a complete joke.” They responded shortly after saying “This guest has been making unfounded allegations of food poisoning within her family for a couple of years. We are uncertain of her intent but will be forwarding comments here to legal counsel.
Our Middletown location sold out of waffles for one day following a busy weekend. That is one single day without waffles in nearly 13 years of doing business in Middletown. Hurry in soon as our Waffulliscious is a limited time only promotion.” This is the Middletown ny location and I honestly got sick, my manager can verify how sick I was feeling and how I had to leave some work undone so I could leave since I felt so bad. Yes other family has complained my mom got sick a few years ago and she was going to go to the hospital for it but didn’t at the time. I honestly felt like I could have gone to the hospital too but I don’t have insurance and the money to pay for that. I’m extremely mad that they think we are lying about this and how dare they say that to the public on their Facebook page, it makes me look bad and my family. We honest both have gotten sick and it isn’t a joke so they were out of line saying that comment, I’m never eating there again after how they just treated me.

I work for ihop in columbia mo it is a franchise store. Our dm/ gm shoulder checked a female employee lastnight because he is angry about her putting in her 2 weeks notice. He is constantly bad mouthing employees behind there backs and to there faces. There is nothing the employees at our store can do about the behaviour from our bully boss if anyone requests corporate number we get the owners office and nothing is done. Truthfully I love working for ihop as well as my fellow Co workers. The store has had multiple lawsuits in the past also involving the same manager but no change. He has threatened employees with cops. This man is so immature selfish and hateful. I tried to tell him I needed to change my schedule for family reasons basically his response was “what have i done to make u want to ruin my business”. He know I have conflict issues and turns it around so right now I do not get to see my children very often because it hurts ihop. I don’t know what to do besides quit my job. In avoidance to Obama care all hours have been cut to 28 hours or less. I started with ihop in 2003 i don’t want to lose such a decent job and this is gonna make it harder to keep it but I feel the real corporate offices and true ihop patrons need to know what is really going on at the columbia mo store. The best things I could see happening would be corporate stepping in to straighten the store up or even better take it over. All our day shift cooks snort coke at work night shift drinks and smokes pot. I may have made mistakes in the past but I chose ihop again because I grew up wanted to straiten my life out. For a family restaurant this is one of the most corrupt places I have ever seen. It saddens me to a point I am ihop thru and thru that is my home that is where I learned and grew as a cook and a person. Thanks for letting me ramble on here hopefully good changes are to cone yet I see this post as my termination regardless of the federal tattle tail law.

I went to the ihop on trenton and expressway 281 in Edinburg texas and our server was great just absolutely great customer service, BUT the manager had some serious staring issues with my family and I he stood by the register and just stared and stared and kept giving serious ugly looks not once did he smile or ask if we needed anything and just kept staring!!! It might have been a personal issue due to one of the employees there. He did not greet us or asked us to come back instead he stared at us as we walked out and made us feel VERY uncomfortable. I’m a manager myself and I guarantee i dont treat my customers that way, his management skills just suck! Did not get his name wish i would have. Went by at 8:30pm if it helps.

I went to the IHOP on Lindbergh blvd in St. Louis, Missouri. Waited almost an hour for my food and once I got my food it was cold and looked like it had been sitting for a while. I also has to explain to the manager who brought a plate put the second time that the second plate was not right either as the has brown were burnt and the eggs were still not scrambled the right way. As the third plate was brought out, I still did not receive the pancakes at the same time and sat and almost ate all of my food before I even received my pancakes. This was the worst service I had received at this location. It should not take 2 hours to get food let alone get some type of customer service to get the issue resolved quickly.

We paid for our bill in cash, and we are about to leave the manager comes up to us and accused us of stealing, and after we told her that we had paid she went over and asked our server. right in front of us. Then when we came home my mother called the ihop and the manager still accused us of stealing. I found this to be really rude. That is not the way you talk to your customers.

Chocolate devils food cake mix, a touch of canola oil, and water to an easy smooth batter makes awesome cheap Chocolate waffles. Top with hot fudge drizzle, powdered sugar, maybe scoop of vanilla ice cream. Easy big revenue. I have tons of friends regularly come to my place begging for them. I sometimes question if they are really friends, or do they only talk to me for my waffles.

I know i’m an idiot for sharing ideas w/o compensation… u might already have them on your menu… But, jf not, it would be nice to prove to ALL of these loyal Chocolate patrons that those top corporate women would reward great, simple ideas to the “nobodies” who graciously offered.

So i work at ihop 3232 in Mount Pleasant, Texas. I first started in December 2011. I quit for a while and came back September 2012. Last week put it two years that I have been with this ihop. Unfortunally since our general manager left to louisiana. Phillip Workman has made working there a living hell. He is disrespectful to his employees. Contantly making jokes about me being a “whore”. I had someone cover my shift wednesday because i wanted to go to dallas and the other server needed the money. I have a witness that his exact words were “i dont wanna help Heather out but i like you ashlan so ill let you cover her.” Then Friday night i had a family matter and went in Saturday to talk to Phillip (our crappy gm). Without letting me even explain myself he tells me “why dont i take you off the schedule for a while till you can get your shit straight!” I leave and go in for my shift today and sure enough. He took me off the schedule until next weekend! I live off of my tips, i rarely miss work and I do my job well….really! This doesnt even begin to cover that Phillip talks to us in a way no manager ever should. He will get in our faces. He is aware that many employees have come to work higher then a kite…..they still have their jobs at regular hours. Plus he puts entirely too many people on the floor so we can make any money. When asked why he replies “im teaching a lesson!” Something has got to give!!!

I was the manager at ihop located at 2204 S. Atlantic Ave. Daytona Beach, Florida. The restaurant is independently owned and while I worked there I had experienced a lot of the employees drinking alcohol and doing drugs on the job. The owner made us use food even after the expiration date just to save himself money. I took pictures of this happening and sent it to the owner and he told me that it was none of my business and if he fired everyone that done those things on the job he would have to fire half his staff. I explained to him it makes it a very dangerous and hostile work environment. The owner allows his family and others drink on the job (I have proof) Again I was told it was his business and not to tell him how to run it. I was just recently hurt on the job and was taken off work by my doctor and was terminated because I followed the doctors orders. I have watched this owner threatening employees jobs and have different rules for all his family that works there. Ihop is supposed to be a family restaurant a safe place to eat but at this location it is everything but safe. I am filing charges with the EEOC and contacting the labor board about these issues and I am not writing this to threaten him or ihop but want parents and other customers know that if you are wanting a safe place to eat don’t eat there!!!

Once i realized this i called the manager at ihop and explained that they overcharged and i would like my money back her name was Joey and she said ok she will process the refund and i should have my money back in 3-5 business days. After 5 business days passed i still havent recieved my money so i called back and spoke with a lady name tanya who was rude and she said she will process the refund and i should have it in 3 to 5 business days i also called corporate and made a complaint because i have been waiting for my money and tanya was rude and after speaking with corporate he said some one will be calling me and i should recieve my money as well. A week has passed and i have yet to recieve a phone call or my money so i called corporate again and he said he will have someone contact me !!!!! i have never had this problem with any restuarant that i have been to and they are RIPPING ME OFF!!!! All i want is my money back. i dont understand what the issue is.

Hi, I just had lunch at store 1417 in Houston, with horrible service from this waitress. But one of the surprises was that I wanted to eat a 2 egg cheese omelet, which I have ordered before. As soon as I ordered it this woman indicated that this was not possible and that I was going to get charged for the large portion. I told her I have done that before and I don’t mind paying. She said she was going to check but she still brought me a 3 egg omelet. When I told her this was too large, she indicated that there was nothing she could do as this was the way it came. I requested a to go box in order not to have a confrontation with her in front of the customer I was having lunch with. And her service in general was horrible.

And by the way, I had to retype all this because your email form does not work. Thank you.

After recieving multiple e-mails about 99 cent pancakes on tuesdays in september 2014 and seeing friends screenshot and post it on social media websites, I assumed it was real. Then after going to multiple locations and calling, not one employee had heard of it. I thought that maybe I had been mistaken, so I tweeted the official ihop account and facebook and still, no answer. I understand if it was a mistake, prank or whatever but if your paying someone to sit on the computer all day to answer questions and comments, they should probably do their job or you should find someone to do it better. Honestly, I wont be surprised if this doesnt get answered.

I am a recent employee at IHOP in New Mexico. I am terribly disappointed at the management personnel and their attitude about employees. I hope to have someone visit and correct the situation here as soon as possible. Many employees hired only a few days ago have terminated due to their mishandling of foods and employees. This may cost me my job but I have to find something else. This situation is terrible and embarrassing.

I had been contemplating whether to even write this.After over hearing one of my employees discussing that the same thing happened to him, I was infuriated! On August 19th my fiancé took me to Ihop in Brunswick , GA to celebrate my birthday …this was not my first visit to ihop ,I just recently moved to Georgia and started to eat IHOP every Wednesday morning . There are not many breakfast restaurants in the area other than waffle house, Ihop, Huddle house. Ihop has always been my first choice. But, after breakfast on the 19th, I won’t be going back. At least not to the one in Brunswick GA.
Here is my story; I ordered pancakes and went to use the syrup and water came out. (Enough where it was obvious it was topped off with water) My first thought was perhaps a child had played with the syrup at that particular table. So I decided to see if the two tables closest to me had the same issue. Yes, both had watered down syrup, I called the waitress and explained to her what happen. She immediately offered me new pancakes and advised she would open new syrup in the back. I quickly declined.
We paid for our half eaten meal and left and I couldn’t take my mind off what happen. I was thinking who would do that; I could only assume that it was water in the syrup and not something else. First thing I wondered is where did the WATER come from. Perhaps out of someone’s water glass? Wow, who would be so lazy to top off syrup with water? After that all kinds of thoughts crossed my mind as to what else is going on in this establishment. Well, I can assure you I won’t be a victim again .Especially after three weeks later my employee was discussing the same exact story … a coincidence I THINK NOT ….considering I had never told anyone at the job of this incident. Somethings won’t change; I’ll cook my own breakfast on Wednesday from now on.

I worked at ihop as a server for 13 years and what probably happened is the server was rinsing off the syrup to make sure it wasn’t sticky and carelessly let water from the faucet get inside. They should have been more careful, i know. Hopefully this makes u feel a little better. I’m sure it was at least clean water and it wasn’t done maliciously, just carelessly.

Horrible IHOP here in Delta, British Columbia, CANADA!
Disgustingly poor customer service and the WORSE business (non) practice.
Complained immediately and 4 times (to 2 employees) about the EXTREME saltiness of hash browns on my husband’s and my meals.
Nothing was done,… no apology, no offer of even replacing or at the least substituting for toast.
Salt content on potatoes made it inedible, left on plate.
Unbelievably insulting to be ignored and valid on-site complaint dismissed!!!
Will never go back.

Went to IHOP with coupon gotten from bensbargains.net. Was told by the manager they would not honor the coupon as there was no expiration date on coupon. I am steamed as I feel robbed. I even checked on the site to find the IHOP location. I called IHOP corporate headquarters during pacific time operating hours, not even an operator to answer the calls. What kind of a corporation is this? Are they out surfing?

I experienced the worst customer service ever at iHop location 2910 Stonecrest Dr, Lithonia, GA 30038. First, I called in to place my order and the employee that answered the phone put me on hold for over 5 minutes and never came back to the phone! I literately stayed on the call until i pulled up in the parking lot. Once I got inside, there were 5 employees standing behind the counter right next to the phone, and not one of them greeted me. After 4 of the employees walked away, the remaining employee finally asked how could she help me. I told her that I needed to place a to-go order and she said okay, “I’ll be right back.” She was gone for over 5 minutes and then someone else walks up to finally take my order. As this lady is putting my order into the computer, she messes up and puts that I want cinnamon french toast, but i really order cinnastack pancakes. Not a huge deal, I mean everyone makes mistakes, but when she goes to get the manager to fix it, is when the problems start once again. He’s talking to her like he’s aggravated and then he tells her not to worry about it because its the same price, and just go tell the kitchen that she needs pancakes and not french toast. After waiting over 30 minutes for my order, it finally comes out and and of course its not like it should be. There was only a dab of cinnamon on my pancakes, no icing, and no whipped cream that normally comes with them. I ask for more cinnamon, and the employee simply goes to the back and smears in the dab of cinnamon spread that was already there! At this point im just ready to leave, I pay and proceed to walk out when I realize I never got a receipt. I turn around for my receipt and then head back to my car. When I get in the car, I look at the receipt, and of course, they over charged me for the pancakes which I figured was going to happen anyway! I went back in to get my money back for being overcharged, and a different employee with an attitude says “this is the correct price for french toast” Which completely pissed me off, because once again, I didn’t order french toast! I told her I didn’t order any french toast and that I want to speak with a manager. Instead of getting the manager, she goes and gets the same lady that placed my order, and of course she cant issue a refund without the manager, so once again, im standing there waiting. The manager finally comes and again, he still has a bad attitude and is acting like he doesn’t want to give me back the money that I was overcharged, so then I get tired of the bull and I just demand a full refund! The rude manager walks away from me completely and another manager comes over and opens the register to give me my money back. I’ve never been so pissed off in my life! After wasting over an hour of my day at this place, I go to the iHOP at 1310 Dogwood Dr, Conyers, GA 30013 and they not only had my order ready when I got there, but the employees were very friendly, even the one that had just got off greeted me once I got outside! I will never go back to the Lithonia location again!

I don’t have any respect for this company or the the individual owners because of the fact that they hire illegals that are not suppose to work in the USA with the company and the managers know that the people are illegal with fake ID and fake social security numbers. I know that the IHOP on 1340 E. Valley Pkwy, Escondido,CA 92027 has many illegal aliens working them. I wish this company was ALL American and helped our country and not destroy it.

I went to Bellueve NE for a family reunion and we all wanted breakfast.We decided on Ihop. We have been there a couple years ago and it was not the greatest. Today was exceptionally different. My mother is in a wheelchair and sometimes hard to deal with..There was a lady that opened the door and welcomed my entire family with a genuine welcome. She asked if we wanted a booth or table( and I’m sure with the wheelchair she knew we needed a table) but didn’t treat my mother different.My mother had alot of questions about the menu when we were seated, that Lara when asked her name was patient and helpful. This made our visit very pleasant.the food was wonderful.The server we had was as great, sorry I can’t pronounce her name, but she was lovely. I’ll be sure to come back each and everytime we’re in town.

I worked for an IHOP in Zions Cross Roads, VA that is independently owned for about 2 years this december. Since being employed there, Ive had 3 different General Managers and the turn-over is terrible! All the employees except for a few, smoke marijuana and pop narcotics while on shift outside and also, some of them come into work high on other substances. Ive seen the cooks drop food on the floor and pick it back up and put it on peoples plates, the servers pick food off customers plates and eat it before they take it out to the table, and the managers and the General Manager knows about all of this and does nothing. Some of the managers even do the same things like smoking weed with their employees! Its a restaurant that’s open 24 hours and over night, some employees have been caught having sex in the restaurant and parking lot. Also, the management has known of employees stealing other employees money and items and has done nothing about it. Just last month, I was terminated from my employment (along with ALOT of other employees) for a bogus excuse of not being reliable; however, I was the only server they could rely on because I am one of the very few who did NOT do the things ive previously said. Also, I am 8 months pregnant and my general manager fired me knowing not many places will hire a woman 8 months pregnant! Then, on top of that, my general manager lied about the things i did when I tried to collect unemployment and so I had to move back in with family and patiently wait for my daughter to get here while struggling to pay bills. I know alot of places and people will say that you shouldnt listen to a disgruntled employee; however, I am past disgruntled. I hope corporate IHOP see’s this and does something about it; however, I am sure they wont. which is okay, because unlike other employees who let things go, I will not stop until I see justice has been served and I will continue to write complaints and emails to corporate until something is done!

Worst day of my life!
Store#3378
3001 N. street Sacramento,CA. 10:47 am
I have my Office near to this I-HOP. So my employees and I decided to order something to eat and have a fun morning at work in today’s Labor Day. But however this day turn into the worst day of my life. I ordered a meal and a side of full pancakes(5) and i asked for a side of blueberrys which cost me almost $2.00 for each lil.container of blueberrys. So i ended up paying $21.00 for this two items. And put three pancakes in a container and two in another. The girl in the lobby couldn’t take my order so she asked to three of the other employees to help her. Nun of them took the order right til the manager came and fix everything. It took me half in hour to get my food. I asked the girl if everything was in the bag including my blueberrys. She said yes everything was in the bag. And i decided to ask for a side of pecan syrup for my pancakes. She didnt know what was that. She ask again to another employees and they couldn’t help either. So i told her too look on the tables for sure they were gunna have it ther. So that’s thats what she did and finally after 10 minutes gave the pecan syrup. My surprise was when i got to my Office ther where NO blueberrys, they put only one fork in ther. And it was a hair in my pancakes. I called right away to the store (I-HOP) and asked for the manager they put me on hold for almost 6 minutes to talk to the manager. So i finally spoke with him and he seems like if he didnt care what i was saying. He told me to go back to the store and get my blueberrys and he ipoligized for the rest of the stuff. And i was telling him this was unnaceptable, how i was gunna go back to the store just for the blueberrys and waht about the hair in my food? he start talking to someone else in the back and tottally ignored what i was saying. I got so mad and realized it was not worth it to fight with this kind of a person. I just decided not to go back at all to any of the I-HOP restaurants. And try to contact any of the corporate office to let them know this ridiculous!

I was in IHOP in Twin Falls Idaho on 8-31 early morning around 1:00.There was a manager/server named Michael Miller I want to complain about.I observed him handling customers food on the plate with bare hands and then served it to them.I had said something to him about how that was against heath code and he should’nt have done that and he told me that he washed his hands right before,and that if I didn’t like it theres the door.He then asigned another server Tara to us and he went and hid somewhere in the back of the kitchen.I was told that he is going to transfer as a manager in IHOP in Salt Lake.I don’t feel he should be a manager let alone working around food.I have been in the food and beverage industry for over 20 years,and I don’t nor will ever manhandle food without proper sanitary handling techniques.I think you should school your staff better on this if you want to continue to be a successful food sevice establishment .Thank you for your time .I hope that something will be done about this matter.

Last Saturday I explained that dining at ihop was the worst restaurant experience of my whole life. I am very upset no one has contacted me thus far. If I am not contacted soon my next step is to contact ECOSURE and the Better Business Bureau. I may even go on social media and share my horrible experience.

I am writing this letter to convey the terrible experience I had at the ihop located on rt 26 frederick md 21704. I went to celebrate my 46th birthday with my wife. It took 20 minutes to get my salad and another 15minutes to get the salad dressing correct. Every dressing I mentioned it took 5min to tell me they where out or didnt have. They eventually offered me omething they use for subs. After confirming prior to ordering that myeal was free,I was advised my wifes meal was free because it was cheaper. The very question I thought we resolved. After receiving my well done steak which i ordeed to be cooked médium,I could take no more. I decided to pack up my food( I have dogs that like overcooked meat). Here comes my free dessert with a hair in my sundae. Happy birthday to me!

This was the worst restaurant experience of my life. I found a insect in my drink and asked the server to get the owner. He refused. He sent the server back and told him there was nothing he can do. I demanded the server come speak to us. After 10 minutes he finally arrived to the table. I explained to him what had occurred and he told me there wasn’t anything he could do. I then proceeded to tell him I did not appreciate how he was handling the situation. I told him I was have preferred he would have come over and handled the situation himself instead of sending my server. He raised his voice at me and put his finger in my face. At that point I was frightened and I feared he might become physical. I kept my composure, however, I felt so disrespected and humiliated. He told me I shouldn’t be speaking to him that way because I am a young female and he is 65 years old. He kept repeating that there was nothing he could do. So after him speaking to me that way for about 5 minutes I finally decided it was not worth it because it was clear he did want to help me. This experience has completely turned me off to ihop. I feel as though this situation should have been handled a lot better.

While visiting Gulf Shores Alabama my wife and I decided to stop in one of our favorite restaurants, IHop. We arrived at 8:30 am to find the restaurant fairly empty but yet there was people waiting. Shortly after arriving and sitting to wait our turn several employees entered, like a shift change. We were immediately called and brought to our table. The service and food were excellent as expected but I thought it strange that there were people waiting in an empty restaurant before we arrived on what would otherwise be a busy day. We returned Monday for another meal. We arrived about 11:15 am to find a similar scene. There were several empty tables and the host/manager was telling people there would be a 10 to 12 minute wait. A few customers walked out but we waited. We were set in about 8 minutes. I suspect they have a staffing problem. With so many people out of work there should be stacks of applications for a position at such a busy restaurant unless the owners/franchises don’t want to spend the extra money to provide adequate service. I think the corporate office should look into this situation.

I worked for IHOP for a total of about 6+ years and three locations. The first store I worked at(1989-1990) was a franchise. The. second store was a corporate store(1993-1996) and the third was corporate store at first then turned franchise(dec1997-june2000) . At the beginning of my employment at the third IHOP in 1997, I was informed that I had been given(enrolled in) an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan). I was lead to believe that this stock would be there for me when I was of retirement age. I have been inquiring as to the whereabouts of my account for literally over 5 years now.. somebody please help me/////

I was just at your resturant in Joplin, MO. I have been there a couple of times before. The manage’s name I believe was Shaun was giving one of the works a bad time. I was just wondering if it is polocy to mock your help in front of customers. The worker he was mocking was a very nice young lady who has waited on me before. She conducted her self properly as she had in the past. He kept howding her and you could tell this was upsetting her. I think you need to do like the TV show under cover boss to check this man out he seems like a real attatude person. Been thinking about it and might not ever go back to one of your resturants if this is how they are managed.

Today, my wife and I had visited an IHOP on Diversey in Chicago, we totally had a bad experience at this location; we went for Breakfast, and we took our two boys and my 3 yr old son has Autism and we assume that the service was going to be great, but guess again the waiter that was serving our food was constantly looking at him, the way my son has his meltdowns, and tantrums we even asked him for a high chair and refused to give us a high chair and said,” I could give u a booster seat,” my wife said, we need the high chair” can you bring us the chair. My experience was ruined because people were starring at my son. I personally think that management should train their employees how to deal children with special needs.

I went to the IHOP in Allen, TX tonight and had one of the most uncomfortable experiences that I have ever had at any restaurant. I ordered the Tuscan scrambled eggs plate. Almost 30 minutes later when the food came out I immediately noticed that my server brought me out an entirely different dish all together. When I brought this to her attention, she tried for a moment to tell me that it was in fact what I had ordered. When I asked her if what I had in front of me was what she had written down for my order she looked at her notes and said, “oh wait that’s not at all what you ordered.” She then took the food away and the waiting game began again. After waiting about another 10 minutes, I told her to just cancel the order as my friend that was with me was almost finished with his food. She then went back to the kitchen to cancel the order. Here is where it got uncomfortable. The cook a man named Jamal according to the manager on duty came out of the kitchen where he proceeded to stare me down in what I saw as an attempt to be intimating as if I was the one that had done something wrong. My server once again came back to my table and asked if there was anything she could bring me. I asked if I could just get a side of bacon. When the bacon finally came it was literally wrapped in hair and a lot more than just an accidental hair that fell into something, still gross but understandable. This was multiple strands of hair per piece. This experience was beyond unacceptable, it was down right pathetic and disgusting. I can say with confidence that as long as the Allen, TX IHOP employs a vindictive thug like Mr. Jamal that I will not be back and I will happily share this incredibly disgusting story with every person I know that may have the bad idea of giving this place a dime of their hard earned money. Truly pathetic.

My question is about the soup of the day. My friends and I were wondering why wouldnt the soups fall on a certain day instead of being determined by the cook. We really like the broccoli soup but never know when there having it. Visited three days straight and got same results, come back again.

Went to the iHop on western street in Amarillo. We were seated at 6:15 p.m. we didnt get our food until 7:40 p.m. The table was dirty and sticky. We waited 20 minutes to get straws for our drinks. Waitress was nice and polite and explained that they were short staffed-not her fault. When we did receive our food the pancakes were dried out and hard, you could hear them crunch as we tried cutting them, the bacon was raw and the hash browns were not fully cooked. The ladies room was filthy with bugs and toilet paper every where. I’ve always had a good experience at this location until today. Unacceptable.

Hi. I have worked at an Ihop at Kirkwoodhighway, Newark, De and regardless of the serving techniques (which have been changed and RARELY USED), but when i had asked about our paychecks and our tips and my GM gave me rude and poor excuse of an explaination. now mind this, i am a tough person to break and one heck of a waitress due to me being in a restaurant and having grown up in a restaurant environment, but i think that what he had said to me was rather rude and uncalled for.
I had nicely and calmly explained to him my situation with our pays and tips. His response was this: “Well this is how things go around here and if your parents dont like it, then i can tell them that their daughter wont have to worry about the pay and tips due to her being fired.”
note: my father and mother brought it to my attention about the pays and tips.
having that said, i was highly upset and was about to walk out. He laughed about it and joked about it but never took any of us serious about it.

I do believe that our boss for the stores here in Delaware is strictly keeping his money to himself and NOT renovate the stores at all. Also when we did see him, he had brought others in and taken their orders and made the rest of us late for serving our tables.

I will NOT be working at any IHOP ever again. I do not like the fact that half of us was treated like crap and looked at as if we are a joke.I did not like the fact that I had to pay for someone elses meal due to being walked out on not even 5 MINUTES AFTER GETTING THEIR FOOD!…This has been a horrible experience for me and I honestly would have stayed working at my other restaurant if this keeps happening. Sorry

IHOP store #817
1430 Plaza blvd National City Ca 91950
Let me start off by saying “Jill” is a horrible
waitress!! Decided to go to IHOP with my fiancée and her nephew as soon as we got seated a waitress came up to us ” mind u she didn’t say good morning how are you guys, or hi my name is _____ what can I get you guys to drink” instead she just came up to us and said (what do you want to drink) so rude then my nephew order a Rudy jr she came back with his food and just slid it across the table! As soon as we ordered our food Jill the waitress comes back our way and just drops the check off to is we hadn’t even got our food. I’m pretty sure she doesn’t like “Gays” Then I order a T-bone steak with eggs which was absolutely delicious thanks too the cooks my fiancée order smoked sausage with waffles we all finished our breakfast and still no waffles! No tip for “Jill” we’ll never go back to this IHOP !!!!!! If I had to rate the place I would rate it Two stars cause food was great but customer service sucked

I want to write a formal complaint to IHOP Restaurant in Lumberton North Carolina that me and my family experience on July 19, 2014. The Service was terrible. We waited over 15 minutes to be seated and waited another 15 minutes before waitress even can to our table. Then we were waiting over 20 minutes and our food never came out. That’s when My family and I left the Restaurant. This is first time in any IHOP that I experience BAD Service. I understand you sometimes have to wait for service because of restaurants being Busy. But the Restaurant was not Busy at all.

I just want you to know I will not recommend any one to eat at IHOP Restaurant in Lumberton North Carolina because of bad service.

I will some times visit your ihop after work. This morning I stopped by and while I was there the manager got mad and yelled at the two servers telling them the drawer was short and they would have to put money in to correct that. I think that was wrong of her. I asked one of the two girls if they did. At first she said no I told her not to lie me and since I was in my uniform she then said yes. I asked her how much and I reimburse both of them out of my pocket. I think it was wrong and both said I didn’t have to. I don’t miss the money I make more money than they do. How can you asked two young ladies to put money out of their pockets for something they may not of done. If this policy is not fixed or addressed I will put it on Facebook so all my friends see it and pass it on.

Not sure what your policy is for store closing times, but I just visited the Dawsonville, GA location @ 9:30 PM and sign shows restaurant closes at 10:00. The outside lights were off and the door was locked. I know when I worked at Longhorn Steakhouse, we locked doors 5 minutes after closing time. If someone came in 5 minutes before we closed and wanted a steak, (even though the cook had already cleaned the grill) he would cook a steak. That’s how customer service should be. I’m really disappointed the manager on duty would allow the restaurant to close 30 minutes early. I will be calling corporate tomorrow

We have been to the Springfield Oregon gateway location several times this week. The same one mentioned a couple of comments down. We are staying in one of the nearby hotels for the IAAF junior world track and field being held in Eugene. We were happy with our food and service. We were very unhappy when the manager of the store whom we were told later that his name was John…. Proceeded to talk loudly to customers at a table next to us about his political opinions. It was highly inappropriate and during this at least fifteen minute period he did nothing but hold these people captive.

I recently visited IHOP in Evansville IN. It was the worst experience ever. The food was disgusting and so was the server. When we asked to speak to the manager he didn’t come. He was to busy on his phone messing around. He was yelling at his employees when they were doing nothing wrong. Either this IHOP needs a new manager or it needs to be shut down.

July 21 2014 IHOP store 670 3427 Gateway st Springfield, Or 97477
We went to this store and had the worst meal ever. My pot roast was mostly gravy with very little small pieces of roast, the mashed potatoes were of the poorest instant taste. My wife had the rise and shine, the bacon was basically raw, the hash browns was cold and browned on one side only. The server was Rochell K, she was not very attentive. The interior of this place was in need of remodel, the carpet was very dirty. My wife was a waitress at a different IHOP and the Mgr of that store would not allow such a poor situation.we are in our late 70,s and have enjoyed IHOP for years but this experience will drive us away. Situations like this will have drastic results for your company.

My husband and I had breakfast at the IHOP located on Arlington, Texas at Highway 360 and Green Oaks. Our experience was excellent. In fact it was the best experience we’ve ever had at an IHOP all over the country. The hostess was great, the lady that waited on us was fantastic. The food was better than ever before. So good that we requested the opportunity to personally thank the gentleman that cooked our breakfast. His name is Oscar. Thank you to the staff at this IHOP for a great experience. We will definitely return!

My wife and I stopped by the IHOP after our date on Friday for dinner in Santa Fe,NM. We had been there one before so we wanted to try it again. They were busy so we expected a bit of a wait, After about 10 mins the manager was getting loud. From what I was hearing he had removed tickets from the window, and the customers behind were waiting on food for quite sometime and the server keep asking for her food…mind you its the tickets the manager had taken off the counter….he started getting loud with the server even tho it wasn’t her fault. It took over an hour for the customers to get their food and an hour for us…at one point the manager started screaming and the server and called her names one being chicken…the party who’s order got screwed up had one gentleman who confronted the manager and told him she is a lady and don’t speak to her like that….the manager told the customer to leave or he will call the cops, my wife and I both have restaurant experience and she has server experience… This upset both of us since he was the one who was wrong. Our server was crying and upset she didn’t do anything wrong. I left comments on the 800 number and to my dismay he called me….he did not care what I had to say at all and offered somewhat of an apology. I just hung up on him….no one should be working in those conditions. I refuse to go back to that IHOP ever!

I frequently visit Ihop in reynoldsburg and every time I go, there is always something that dissatisfies me about that place. I recently placed a to go order on the phone Friday July 18, 2014. I came to pick the order up and my bill was $10.78. I realized that I will not be able to eat at home so I then asked the front desk lady if there were any available tables, and if there wasn’t then that was fine. She asked the manager if it was okay to sit us down, then sat us a table. My boyfriend and I started to eat then I realized that I did not have any ketchup so I asked a random waitress that walked past, named Makayla, if I could have some. She was polite and gave me a bottle of ketchup. We continued to eat, then realized that we were starting to get thirsty. We did not want to be “those customers” that want and need everything. So I just asked a waitress (by the name of Karla) that was helping another table near by if we could have just one glass of water. I do not know whether or not she heard me but she was looking straight at me and did not respond (maybe she had a lot on her mind). So I asked her again, and she responded with a nasty “sure”. She then got a glass of water and placed it on our table. She did not say anything nor did she give us any straws. I am glad that I looked in the glass because there were little black things floating around in the water. I was then fed up and just wanted to go. I did not finish my meal or anything! Since we did not have a waitress we took our bill to the front desk to check out. It took 5 minutes for them just to find a waitress to check us out and she came out for me to sign for $33. I do NOT know where that came from so I asked the manager. I showed him my original receipt and the one I was given to sign. He said that he would fix it. It took another 5-7 minutes for that to happen. They added tax for us dining in, which I understand, and I signed for that.
It is now Sunday July 20 and I go to look in my account and I have been charged for the $11 and $33! I am furious because I have other plans to do with that money. I call up to speak with the manager and he says that they never credited to my account and that it takes 48 for the bank to catch up. I am furious because now I have to wait on a silly mistake that they made. I am not even mad at that, I am mad at the fact that every time I go into that iHop I ALWAYS have a problem! It needs to be fixed! I need my money back!

This is the third weekend night my family and I have stopped in IHOP in Stafford and should not come back. Unfortunately we have had a server by the name of Michelle. She is unattentive and never to be found when we need something. She always has made mistakes with our orders and never brings everything together. Last weekend she disappeared and when we left we saw her with a male server smoking and hugging out back in the shadows. Not only did we not get good service but other tables she was serving were looking for her and the server she was with. He was a very tall hispanic man with curly hair. The table next to us had 5 guys looking for him when we had another server check us out. For now on if we come back we will ask for Jessica. She is awesome and can handle more tables then all the other servers combined. We now know when she comes in and will wait for her shift to ever come back. We asked last Sunday night for a manager to let them know of the problems with Michelle but she was busy in the kitchen is what we were told. The manager a blond young lady was not busy. She was joking around in the kitchen and a hispanic lady was working very hard with the manager and servers clowning around. You need to have this lady Jessica as a manager. She is attentative, professional, efficient and very polite. What happened with the rest of the staffers. We have even seen your manager asking others in the past to handle problems when she should, instead of making a face and ignoring the server’s assistance. Another thing..we overheard Michelle asking if she should call the jail to stay later..why is she outside..aren’t jail employees suppose to be supervised..your manager in the kitchen and she was outside..is that allowed? We have noticed new people, but none compare to the quality of service like Jessica, the hispanic lady. The other Jessica is worthless..she doesn’t appear to want to work like the rest. Your food has gone downhill and we understand why..get some cooks, too. Managers should not be cooking but supervising. Also, how does IHOP as a pancake restaurant run out of everything….butter especially!!

July 17, 2014 – Ihop Littleton Colorado – Bowels and Cross

I took the day off to spend with my kids, took them to eat they all requested IHOP. Were sat quickly, table dirty had to clean off as we stood and waited. Had to ask for coffee twice, which was cold. Then we ordered, the restaurant was empty though it took 30 minutes for our food to arrive, and it was ICE cold. My son had chicken fried steak and pancakes (the butter on the pancakes was hard never melted). My order was wrong, and my youngest who order a cheeseburger was HORRIBLE! She said the school food was better.
The waitress NEVER came back around and my bill was $48.00! For horrible food and service. I told the manager and she said “oh” “sorry” and walked away. Yep, I will never go back, McDonalds would have been better and much cheaper. IHOP used to have half way decent food and service it has fallen to the bottom of the list.

I got to uhop and put down for a party of 5 and was told 15 minutes, after 25 the hostess called my name for a part of 2 and then apologized for she had writtwn down 6 upside down. After another 25 minutes another party of 6 came in and apparently they were friends of the hostess so after 5 minutes she sat them. We asked her how much longer and she said they were clearing up a table. After another 10 minutes we realized how useless she was and the fact that the manager wasnt doing anything about it we decided to leave in which all she could muster up to say was sorry. Worst experience ever.

To whom it may concern,
My grandchildren get to chose any restaurant they want to have dinner with their family for their birthday. My granddaughter who just turned 6 has chosen IHOP for the last 4 years. My daughter just moved to Independence Missouri 2 months ago which gave us an opportunity to try a different restaurant than we were used to. After the meal we we happy for the change. We were a party of 10 and arrived @ 3:30 in the afternoon for dinner @ store #3345 in Kansas City, Mo. Our server was Angela N. # 37. I am 57 years old and have been in the restaurant business all my life. From a car hop @ 15 to retiring as a GM of a fine dining steak house. The quality of service we were shown is not usually found in a casual dining establishment. She was spot on. From the drink order, to the pre salads, entree’s, prebussing etc. I was blown away and I am a very critical guest with my background. I hope you are all aware of the great servers like Angela that your restaurants have. We will continue to eat @ this one.
Thank you

My husband and I decided to have an enjoyable breakfast after weeks of working in the hay fields. I suggested the IHOP in Front Royal, Virginia. We had been there twice before. The first time was just after they opened, and our service was marginal. I gave them the benefit of the doubt that it was because they were new to our area. The second time, our service was poor but again I tried to keep an open mind that things would improve. Today was completely unacceptable. We ordered coffee, water with lemon (we requested lemon twice and never received them) and breakfast meals. My husband and I each read the entire paper and drank three cups of coffee while we waited! Our server, Misty, spent her time chatting with her friends two booths away from us. We sat there for at least 15, if not 20, minutes waiting. Finally, we gave up, walked to the cashier and said we would pay for our coffee. She seemed to have a problem finding our order in the system and finally said that we could have our coffee free. She also offered to let us talk with the manager on duty. If this manager cannot make sure that meals are served in a timely manner to an almost empty restaurant (it has been almost empty on each of our three visits) why would he or she be interested in our complaint. As we walked to our car, Misty, our waitress, was standing outside smoking and continuing her chat with her friends. We drove across the street to Cracker Barrel and had a wonderful breakfast that was served to us in less than 10 minutes!

We have visited your IHOP in Winchester, Virginia on a number of occasions and have never had a problem. The food is good and the service is good. We have also visited other IHOP’s in the area again with no problem. Someone needs the have a chat with servers, like Misty, that you are a service provider. Clearly she needs to be counseled that if she wants to visit and have a long conversation with friends it should be done on her time not when when she is working, she should follow up with simple requests (lemon), and check on the status of meals to be served, if there is a delay the customer should be notified. Your management at the Front Royal IHOP should be counseled that they are new to our area and there is a lot of other restaurants. If they want to have a large percentage of the customer base, then they need to improve on the servers attitude, promptness of food being served, and the servers followup after food is served to check if the customer needs anything additional. It would also not hurt for the manager to walked around and check that all is well with the customer. This certainly would be a good will gesture and might resolve issues quickly.

My husband and I were at IHOP in Henrietta Ny. It was very alarming to see a half naked man going back and Fort in the kitchen. This guy had a tan top on, his pant was at his knees and his entire underwear was exposed. We approached the host and questioned why a half naked man was in the kitchen she giggled and said ” he works here, he is not working today he is visiting ” a manager was unavailable. It is so sad that any and everyone is allowed to be where our food is being prepared. I think that is disgusting and should not be allowed.

My husband and I visited an Ihop restaurant in the villages florida on July 10th. We purposely went because of the commercial we saw with the blueberry pancakes with c annoli filling. Well let me tell you the c annoli filling was cottage cheese we made it known to the waitress and she asked the cook he said that it what he gets from corporate. There is no way that it was anything compared to the c annoli filling. No manager ever came over to us either. This is false advertisement on ihop saying one thing they just want to get you intothe restaurant. Very disappointed will not visit ihop anytime soon.

I was at IHOP in Gallatin,Tn earlier today when a scuffle started involving 2 waitresses and a young girl . All 3 started screaming at one another and seemed to know the girl prior to her visit. There were quite a few customers in the restaurant at the time. Including a large party with adults and young children. They were sitting by the door when these three young women decided to take it outside. There was more yelling and screaming outside and things appeared to be escalating even more. The police showed up soon after that. Is this how u run ur restaurant ? It was very immature, unprofessional, and very alarming. Who knew if weapons were coming out. I couldn’t find a manager anywhere. I will not return to this IHOP.

I stopped by IHOP on my way home from visiting my grand daughter in the children’s hospital in Birmingham AL obviously there were numerous places between there and home (a2hour drive) that I could have chosen to eat at it was 6:00 when we arrived at the store it was very slow the waitress showed up took our drink order then she brought it back now on to the bad our waitress (NENE) showed up to take our order with no pen I told her we would wait til she found one we had 6 people in our party and we are kinda picky my husband wanted 2 extra side items she said he gets this OR this OR this (want to say she did bring drink refills) and I guess really didn’t want to let him order extra after the refills we didn’t see her again for a while I asked another waitress if she could check on our food because 2 other tables that came in after us have received their food (a party of 5 and a party of 2) the waitress we asked went to the back to ask about our order came out and said that in will be out soon she said what did you order I said all breakfast food and one of the tables that came in after us had even ordered a steak as one of their items so she was concerned and ask her table to excuse her she would be right back and went to check on our order again when she got in the kitchen our waitress and the other waitress started arguing about the other waitress bothering her table she tried to explain to her that I had stopped her to ask about our food (like I said before we hadn’t seen our waitress in a while) they just yelled at each other (from this time til after we finally received our food they were yelling at each other and not til after what looked like the manager? told them that was enough) the other waitress assured us our food would be out soon as she was letting us know our waitress brought out my youngest 2s order and as she walked by the other waitress she told her she needed to go before the other waitress got in trouble our waitress set the food down and said the rest would be out soon again our waitress disappeared a different waitress brought most of our food and drink refills in total it took about 40 minutes to get our food a few things missing but did get those when I got home I tried to do the survey on my receipt and tried 4 times and it said “Thank you for dining with us. It appears that a survey has already been completed for this receipt. We look forward to your feedback on your next visit.” I did NOT do the survey yet I am assuming one of the people working at the time did it for me so they would not get a bad review just want to add that I have worked at a restaurant in the past for 7 years and I believe in team work you ALWAYS help each other out if someone’s customer asks for something-anything you get it for them IF you are busy you make sure to let someone know what the table needs so they can get it THAT is good customer service

I have a complaint. When you sell these franchises, do you monitor them at all? The one in Newark, CA on Jarvis Street, is an absolute joke filled with drug addicts. Is this the way you want to present your company image? Don’t they have health codes, employee rights, guidelines to follow? Or you just let them do whatever they want? This is the worst by far place I have ever worked for as far as organization, making employees better, and caring about customer service, all key qualities to a successful business. That is what I think about C & H Corporation, and if you don’t believe me just stop in and visit to see with your own eyes.

It may be wise to look into the turnover rate at the IHOP in Orangeburg, SC. Many great employees have come and gone (by choice or by force) but the manager is still there……hmmmm. I’m sure IHOP doesn’t like spending money on hiring just to fire. Great leaders breed loyalty and and fosters excellent service, which in turns drives profits.

Greetings from Puerto Rico! I just want to say that even though we currently have two IHOP Restaurants in the towns of Caguas and Dorado, the area in which I live (Guaynabo) does not have on. The IHOP located in Caguas is about half hour driving distance from my area, and the Dorado site is about the same distance. So you see, it is not feasible for us to eat there! Guaynabo is a highly populated area with modern shopping malls, middle and high bracket income residents of all ages. We have the major central banks and restaurant chains nearby. We need an IHOP in our area! The only breakfast chain we have here is Denny’s, and it is time for a new option for us. Olive Garden will open three restaurants shortly here, one will be near my area. You see, I live close to the San Patricio Shopping Center, the Mall where you find everything you need. Please consider opening an IHOP in the Guaynabo area, and you will make MANY PEOPLE HAPPY including me! As a native New Yorker I would love to have an IHOP here. Also, the US ARMY Fort Buchanan Military Base is close by (about 9 minutes driving time) which would have many employees and soldiers going to eat at IHOP! Hope you open IHOP Soon here!

to whom it may concern I have a band in South Florida we work very hard and play every weekend and when were done depending on what area we are in, we go to IHOP for breakfast. normally we have good service last weekend we went to the Coral Springs West sample road location where we we’re seated in the back section away from everybody.
we had a party of 10 (band and wives) which would have been a good check. we’re all good tippers. We we’re seated for 30 minutes when we asked for menus and we realized it’s getting very late we were told they will be with us in a minute. another 30 minutes went by when we realized the sun is going to be up by the time we eat. at that point we were so tired we just left. The staff were all huddled around the cash register didn’t seem to mind that we’re all getting up and leaving. the restaurant was half empty. it wasn’t like they were busy they were all sitting around the register gabbing the whole time. At that point we went to Steak and Shake and ended up eating after 4 a.m. Instead of 2 a.m. normally I or my bandmates and their wives we never complain about anything. furthermore when I called up twice now to that location a woman answers the phone I’ve asked for a manager and they told me to hold on.10/15 minutes goes by, I hear them giggling in the background. they pick up the phone and say the managers going to be right with you, after another 15 minutes I hang up that’s been the scenario thus far. you just lost your party of 10 at IHOP every weekend from now on we are very upset, thank you for your attention to this matter sincerely Robert Koppisch

I visited IHOP located 1001 White Plains Rd in The Bronx, NY on 5/25/2014. The food was adequate . There was a 70 cents discrepancy in the bill. The manager was called and he adjusted the bill. When our waitress brought the revised bill she never brought back my debit card. When I was doing my online banking the next morning I saw an additional charge from the very same IHOP for $18.05. I sent an email with a description of the occurrence and my contact information. No one has ever called or contacted me to address this matter I was greatly inconvenienced by having to cancel my debit card. Additionally, I’m very concerned that IHOP employs dishonest people. I called to see if my card was there and they said it wasn’t. Identity theft is a constant concern when using credit or debit cards, and IHOP has shown very little concern for their customers.

After being a loyal customer for 20 years it appears the IHOP Corporation has gone to the dogs. I have had an issue with the Dothan Al location and have not been able to talk with anyone that has the authority to provide an intelligent answer. After spending about an hour on the phone with the Customer Relations Dept who are ashamed to give their full name I tried to contact the Corporate Office. I requested to talk to the COO Mike Archer and the operator transferred me to Customer Relations. Apparently the COO is also ashamed to respond to wronged customers also. Unfortunately companies such as IHOP forgets the customer that made them. If enough people stop going to the locations maybe they will get the message. Just because someone is a Senior Citizen, IHOP does not the right to discriminate against them by not resolving issues created by IHOP.

Georgetown TX. location. Passed over several times for seating. Told it was going to be 10 to 15 minutes and it turned out to be almost 30. Seated and waitress tried to help hurry things along. 25 minute wait for food. Eggs and hasbrowns were cold. All in all a very bad experience. I think you just lost a loyal customer. As I said earlier the waitress tried but the front staff were non-caring and had very poor attitudes including one that made snide comment about a special needs person after seating him

My husband and I went to IHOP on 71st & Lewis in Tulsa OK around 5am for breakfast and were treated like trash by the manager. We were sat in the same section as two other tables right in front of us which means the server for that section was triple sat. I asked the manager immediately upon being seated if all those tables just sat were for the same server and he said no. I notice as soon as the server leaves us she greets and gets drinks for the other sat tables in her section. I also am sitting conveniently in front of the food window watching the manager yell for food runners while he stands there not helping. My husbands food sat in said window for 6 minutes while they were still preparing my chicken fried steak and eggs. I was starring at the food in the window when another server approached us and asked if there was something I needed and I replied “yes, my husbands food that’s been sitting in the window under heat lamps for the last 6 minutes.” He replied ” it’s been great talking with you.” Walked off and then would walk back by and ask if I needed more water before leaving again and not helping us in any way. When I complained about these things to the manager he told me not to let the door hit me on the way out. Disgusting IHOP. We’ll go to ANY other breakfast establishment from now on.

Went out wit my girlfriend to ihop on 1880 W. Slauson ave. La, Ca. It was the worst! Was giving a dirty glass and the guy argued with my girlfriend, cut her off and ask are you ready to order. Very rude .Ask for a manager he came and was acting like he was hiding something never said hi greeted us or nothing, just got a weird vibe from him, then i asked could i have the female server he said ok and left, didn’t thank us for coming or apologize. The waitress was way better and apologize for previous server and explain he had to many people to serve or something . Still Customer services was not there. We order our food waited a long time with no new guest arriving, like 45 mins. And you guys won’t believe what happens next………, the bad waiter named memo was standing and front of us with or food and he was like i’m sorry but your food was just sitting. So i’m looking at my girlfriend like wth. the other waitress finally comes over, i’m in shook like i thought you were waiting on us she was like i am , so i say does that mean your suppose to bring us our food and plus we didn’t wan’t that waiter, she was like yes but do u want the food i was like no! Plus I
seen him pick at his nose and it was like race demgraphically wrong for area (same race of people in business, lack of muti-culture) made me a little uncomfortable. Left feeling faint, dizzy, and had a headache. Worst experience at a restaurant by far and once my grandmother found a worm in her salad.So…….. Manager: Rafael Barajas Worstest Watier: Memo

Went to ihop @ 5175 NW 36th st in Miami Springs, FL. We had the absolute worst service I have ever received at any resturant, ever. First if all the waitresses response to just about everything we wanted was “don’t have it”. Once we figured out what we wanted she kept grabbing at our menus, I told her I was not finished ordering. She then proceeded to take our order without writing any of it down. Asked for an appetizer that never came, was told they don’t make ceaser salads (what reaturants don’t make a simple ceaser, I know other ihops do), had my soda refilled once, tried to get more then one napkin which never happened, had to squish a bug on the table. She prob visited our table a total of 3 times. Never said thank you for coming in, did you enjoy your food etc, came by with the bill, said “you done” we said yes and she dropped the bill on the table and said “pay up front”. We were so upset we planned on tipping low (2 dollars on a 30 dollar bill). When we get to the register she takes the bill, takes our card, and has me sign. I write in the tip and she says “how much if a tip” I tell her and she says “that’s not even 10 percent” in front of a line of people wanting to pay as if she was trying to intimidate us into tipping more! We explain the bad service and ask if any further explanation is needed on something that is supposed to be a tip for good service. She lets us leave and mumbels something as we leave. I am so angry with the service we received from ihop I don’t think I will return to one of your locations for a very long time. The date was 6/5/14, waitress name: Stephane

Entered IHOP at 3:25a.m. it is now 3:49a.m. and was greeted by the Manager, Phyllis. I only got her name from the waitress Amanda Faulkenstein who alarmed me she doesnt know her Manager’s last name. She advised me she would ask the Manager and she refused. The issue was there were two waitresses working two different sides of the restaurant. Phyllis attemped to seat us in Amanda’s section and we asked if we can sit on the left side. Phyllis shoulders dropped and she said go ahead. We seated ourselves. My husband got upset because he seen the waitress shake her head no to the Manager when we approached the table, as if we werent welcome in her section. At that point, he got upset and got up so that we can sit in Amanda’s section. She then sat us in an area that seemed distant and darker than the rest of the restaurant, away from the others that were dining. Irritated, my husband asked for the Manager. The Manager told Amanda to tell him he can come up to the front because she is busy. I thought Amanda was quite professional. My only issues with her was that she doesnt know her Manager’s name, I have heard her say they have been really busy, as an excuse, more than enough times, and she refilled a sprite for a water and when informed it was Sprite, she removed the water from our table and gave ot to another guest. I only stayed because we had a long night and had been driving a couple of hours and was extremely hungry. I can NOT believe IHOP is being run in such a manner. I truly feel bothered, disrespected and mistreated.. We paid $40 total for our meals, even after we were disgusted. I couldnt even enjoy my meal. This was the IHOP on Central Avenue in Atlanta…. Near the Airport… .

My visit to IHOP store #3433 – Westbury, NY…
took awhile to be served once served waitress did not come over the table to ask if we need anything else…the only time I saw her was the time she came over the table to drop the bill even at that time did not ask if we needed anything else….minutes later I had to call her attention because I wanted more coffee not to say the time that we tried to get he attention or other waitress because my son wanted water…he end up getting up and go chase the waitress down to request it…

In the way out asked to speak to manager, they went on the back to call him…when in the front he did not even asked if I was the one waiting to talk to him I had to ask if he was the manager….when I approached him about how come this location once you seat down they don’t put water in the table? His answer was that is why we ask you what you would like to drink. I said I understand but I have been at other Ihop’s and regardless what they always bring water to the table. Then I comment on the waitress service he that bad for the waitress….what bad in the aspect tips they can loose out…but also obviously that affects the clients coming back to that location…manager answer to me at the end of everything was that I could write a review about it…takes more than a shirt and tie to run a business and please someone, but he definitely has a manager he really needs to learn how to talk to someone that approach him about a situation because he could barely look at me as I am talking to him…
Another issue I saw there was how come I had to wait for my waitress to pay my bill when there was 3 employees in the front desk just talking to each other because there no one waiting when we were leaving, they should at least used their free time to maybe clean the waiting area since needed it…

I entered the IHOP in San Angelo, Tx with another customer for whom I held the door open to enter. I immediately noticed my take out order near the register for pick up. We waited in the lobby for a few minutes before Jennifer approached. She didn’t bother to inquire who was first, she just took the gentleman to his seat and proceeded to take his order, entered it into a computer in the back of the store and served him coffee two times. She knew I was still waiting because I peered at her through the glass. I assumed because she never came back that she didn’t work the lobby register and that someone else would come along to check me out.

Another customer came to the register to check out and it took Jennifer another 5-8 mins to approach us. She immediately began to serve the other customer who was waiting until I reminded her that I was there first. In fact, I was first when she served the other customer. Instead of her apologizing, she asked me why was I upset with her – that she was just an employee who came in early to help out. I never responded, but I did show my disdain towards her for being obviously prejudice. When she gave me my receipt, she threw it onto the counter and looked at me as if to say, do something about it. Then she stated again, “I don’t know why you’re angry with me. I’m just an employee trying to do my job and have good day.” I asked to speak to her manager. She proceeded to help the gentleman behind me and then sashayed off to get the manager.

It took the manager so long to arrive, I left because the lobby was filling up with customers and I didn’t want to make a spectacle. I decided to call instead. I called the first time and someone picked up and left me on hold for an extended period. I hung up and called back two more times and no one ever picked up. On the third call, someone picked up and only retrieved the manager because I misled him into believing that I was an owner and operator of an IHOP in Georgia, which is where I’m from. The manager came to the phone and apologized for the behavior and made excuses why she didn’t respond while I was inside of the location. Truth is, she thought that I was an undercover boss and that’s why she was so apologetic.

Jennifer, however, was rude, prejudice, and intentionally tried to avoid serving me. I’m black, I’m a woman, and she not only served one white male over me she tried to serve another until I spoke up. When I called her on it, she tried to make it appear as if she was the victim and that I was “picking on” her. When in fact she was the perpetrator.

When we arrived at the Saint Joseph, MO location we waited in the front to be seated for a really long time. No ever came. So I sat myself back in the smoking section while my friend used the restroom. He finally joined me. We wait a while before anyone even stop by. Finally the waitress came by and took our drink order. We didn’t even have menus, so when she brought the srinks we asked for them, again it took some time before we received them. Several mintues later we watched another older gentlemen seat himself, and we watched as he waited to be waited on. Whats really makes me mad is as we sat and wait to order a young handsome gentleman gets sat behind us by what had to be the manager by the way she was dressed, and he gets served immediately. She returns with his drinks and stands there and talks damn in near sittin in his lap. We still wait for our order to be taken as we listen to her flirt with this gentleman behind us. Finally after 20 mins of being there we finally get our order taken. Needlessly to say our visit was far from pleasant. I didn’t know to get good service you had to be an attractive young man willing to let the manager give you a lap dance. I will never be back.

I had a very bad experience at the IHOP in Hapeville, Ga on Central Ave. My Church Members and I were treated very bad. Our orders had to be sent back several times because the eggs kept coming out scarched and burned. After the second trip, and wating for them to be recooked, the other food left was cold. Manager was called to table and he stated that the cook was tired because of so many prom kids. The wait was really long on top of all the loud noise from the kids screaming and running around. The waitress stated that the cook messed all of our orders up twice and he took her to the corner, fussed at her and she was sent home.I was very disappointed in the service, because I am a regular customer. Manager never apologized for service. We paid for food, but left most of it.

Ok well having seen the other complaints, makes you wonder how company’s like this stay open. but here goes On 5/18/2014 at store #4489 Monroe, La. I was Banned from I hop, Reason LOLOL I was asking for a waitress, This waitress was very good at what she does, ( Frankly don’t see why she is still there, which I know she probably needs to work to help support family ) anyway About three weeks before this we had asked for her, ended up leaving because I guess it was causing an issue for me asking for her. now back to present day I had asked for her again we sat down and was waiting for a table to open for her was no one else in the lobby so we figured no problem. and at that time the manager was not out there, every thing was going good till he showed up, he said that we could not be waited by that person because it was corp. policy that she could not wait on us because she was family, well sad to say mr arse of a manager we are by no means related, she just happened to wait on us one time and liked the way she waited on us. so we would ask for her. so he went on some babbling mouth junk that we were family and that we could not have her for waitress and all, and I asked him if he had a problem with us for asking for her, and I said well we will eat here today but after today we will not be back reason being My Son from down south was going to meet up with us there because he was going back down and I didn’t want to waste time going anywhere else, so long story short we are no longer welcome to this arse of a manager store. Ok No Problem. IHOP u should check in on your managers quit often U might get a better feel of why there is so many complaint’s. To the employees of IHOP #4489 I feel for you having seen the way Your manager does.

ALBUQUERQUE. Same story as many of the others here. Not seated by menaul store after 15 mins. and I was the only one waiting. Went to Mercantile store. Manager very nice yet way to busy doing everyone else’s job to the extent she couldn’t manage! My food was sent back which should’ve been ONE OF THE PRIORITIES, instead Lutecia was busy bussing and serving tables, hostessing and cashiering.
Food was mediocre, service was widely varied and all because management didn’t allow people to be accountable for their performance or lack of it.
I will not return to I hop however the Manager’s management should be held accountable for allowing the waste of human resources. You have a full house of willing workers that seemed to need top down guidance .

The Waitress May 16, 2014 at 1:27 am

I work at an IHOP in New Jersey and I can honestly say it is an extremely hostile work environment. My assistant manager decided out of NOWHERE that she doesn’t like me, and has been auctioning off my Friday and Saturday shifts to the other employees. She loudly talks smack about me, as well as the others she’s decided she doesn’t like, to the point where I’ve had tables complain that they want her name so they can go to corporate with the information. Unfortunately, corporates even worse. Our corporate representative edits our time cards when we hit over time to make it look like we haven’t. They clock us out on breaks we’re never given, and they change our declared tip amount to get themselves tax breaks. The whole job is an absolute ordeal, and I can’t wait to go back to school in the fall and never set foot in another IHOP as long as I live.

Yesterday I had a bad experience in the IHOP from le jeune and wrote a comment here showing my disapproval of the servers rude behavior. The general manager from the store, Carlos, called me to apologize and to offer me to go to with my family whenever I want to redeem the issue. I thought it was very nice and sincere from his part! And I really appreciate that he took time his time while being on vacation to call me and see that everything was alright. Very glad that IHOP was on top of this. Thank you!

So apparently from all the other comments, i am not alone in saying that ihop is a corporation where customer service doesn’t count. nor do the employees matter. Anyway, This morning we arrived at the ihop location in mays landing, NJ. To be greeted by nearly every teenage employee they could possibly muster. Firstly, they couldn’t interrupt their conversation to seat us. Then after a few minutes and some nasty looks, they finally looked our way to seat us. When the girl was told that there were 2 more people that we were waiting for she proceeded to roll her eyes, and say that we could not be seated! The damn place was empty! I mean like 10 tables were occupied empty. Now i see why they were. And that is not even the worst of it. Finally, after arguing another woman said to seat us, so she did to her disdain, and a huff. After sitting there for at least 5 minutes, not one server acknowledged that we were sitting there! My father finally flagged someone down, who looked at him like he was disturbing her! And he asked for a cup of coffee, to which she shot with a major attitude, you can not be served until your entire party arrives. Really now not even a cup of coffee!!!! oh that’s right because you had to finish your conversation about the guy you were with last night with the hostess. God forbid you were rudely interrupted. I will never eat there again, and trust me neither will a lot of people. this place should be shut down! Your company should be ashamed of yourselves. What kind of business are you running? You don’t care otherwise this wouldn’t be a constant issue. Your in your comfy chairs making your millions. You know nothing of how to run a restaurant. and really need to do some damage control. Your company sucks. And so do the employees that work there.

What kid of restaurant are you running. I didn’t bother to complain because figuring the short hair ladi was probably the maniger I decide to get up and leave.

I called the IHOP 285 NW 42nd Ave, Miami 33126 because it’s the closest to my house and a waiter names Osmel answered the phone so rudely! When I asked him to put icing on the side he told me that he doesn’t know if they have icing and I asked him if he could ask and he ignored me completely. At the end of the order I asking him what my total was and he rudely said “okay!! You gotta hold on!!! Because I’m busy!!!” And started shouting things in Spanish to his coworkers. I understand he’s busy but he could have just said to hold a second please and I would have being okay with it! While holding on for him to talk to his coworkers my phone died so I called again. Osmel didn’t even introduce himself or the store and rudely said “hello. What you want” and I told him I had just placed an order and he just went “okay??” Making me feel stupid. I tried to get my order through again and he kept talking in Spanish with his coworkers while I was telling him my order…I don’t usually do this since I’m a waitress myself but this is unacceptable! Horrible way to start your morning. I hope someone retrains that guy in customer service. Thank you!!

I’m not sure what IHOPS policy is regarding a customer walking out and not paying their bill but I do know that someone did that to my daughter who is a server at the 3730 Quebec location in Denver Colorado and she was fired by her manager named Joyce because she wanted my daughter to pay for their bill and my daughter did not l feel she should be responsible for them not paying their bill.My daughter is a single mom who was not only working a long shift that day but it was also Mother’s Day .If that is the restaurants policy I feel that is very low class and that manager has no heart to fire someone like that.My daughter makes less than minimum wage as a server and struggles just to make ends meat to take care of herself and my granddaughter.This is a multi million dollar corporation and they want to make their employee pay for someone else breaking the law.How low can you go.I will never eat at their establishment again.

There is a manager at the IHOP of Orange, Connecticut who is extremely unprofessional and extremely rude with a bad attitude. I’ve been here multiple times and have seen her texting on her phone constantly, yell at employees so loudly it makes the entire building silent and have been able to see her from my table eating in the back where the cooks are. I think that is extremely unsanitary, unprofessional and disgusting and I will not be returning here for as long as I know this girl is here. Hire someone who knows what they’re doing and will actually be a manager, not someone with a teenaged attitude who stands around and texts all day.

I would like to say that I am an employee at the Ihop in Sierra Vista. Our night manager, Brenda, follows us around badgering us and making negative remarks towards the way we work. She yells at us and belittles us. Last week she told my co-worker to get out of the kitchen and stop flirting with the cooks because she knows my co-worker lives with another man other than her boyfriend and sleeps around. Also last week on a Saturday it was prom and Christina and Brenda both had servers waiting off the clock for three hours for a prom rush that never came. Brenda creates a hostile work enviroment and Christina favors certain servers by letting them get away with whatever they want while she writes up everyone else for doing the same exact stuff. Every single time Brenda has spoken to us in this way, we have documented it, I have also spoken to my attorney just in case. This is not allowed and it says in the ihop handbook that creating a hostile work place will not be tolerated. Also, our managers make us fill out our own surveys for corporate and if we dont do that we are expected to be at meetings at 4 a.m as punishment. I have one of the corporate ladies (beckys) number and I will be calling her soon to discuss further action if these issues can not be resolved. thankyou and have a blessed day

So from the following comment “Want to make sure IHOP sees your comment or complaint?” Share this on fb or tweet. Well that tells me that these people don’t care and will not answer people. I was suppose to hear from Miguel Fragosoa and to date have not. If there is anyone else waiting for a call don’t hold your breath. IHOP has time to only care about themselves and getting your money. The only thing right on our visit was them taking my money. I guess they don’t need anyone’s business. I also feel that if I were a MINORITY my concerns would have been addressed!

I visited your location in Temple TX. Was the worst experience of my life! I’ve never complained in my life but truly felt you should know how horribly this restaurant is !! I came in with my family on Easter Sunday (4-20-14) No customer service skills ….no hello or how are you?? We were seated and given menus and then waited about 5-8 minutes for our drink order to be taken….that took another 10 minutes ! It was not even really busy but I know the waitresses had enough time to stand and jabber to each other! We finally put our order in and once received …it was totally wrong ! I finally asked for a manager and the waitress said he’s not here. So I asked for someone in charge and she said hold on….We waited again !! No one ever came to our table! I can only say I will be contacting BBB and Health Dept. Because those bathrooms were horrible! Maybe need some retraining???

I filed a complaint against an IHOP location. I filed this over 5 business days ago. I have had no response. You say that you will respond, well that is a lie. My case number is 360298. This number is of no use unless you actually do what you say you will do. I had a valid complaint that my pancake was RAW and was delayed because of a so called inspection. Well I guess you don’t care about the customer and only worry about your image. I figure if I were a minority I would have gotten attention. it is sad when a regular person cannot get satisfaction. Try to treat people EQUALLY no matter what their race is.

This passed week on 4/17/2014 location 2620 Central Park Avenue Yonkers NY 10710-1126 .I usually enjoy going there from time to time but this experience changed my WHOLE ideal of ever stepping foot in IHOP again.It was about 9:00 when we arrived.The Host wasn’t around for about 10 mins. Finally after finally being seated my fiance decided to order something out of the ordinary of what hes use to and I myself stood to my steak tips with eggs.Once ready to order my fiance order a chicken bacon club sandwich short.Not long after ordering both are meals came & hungry and tired after we both worked and ran errands we began to eat I looked over and stopped and ask him why does hes sandwich looks like that we opened up to find the chicken still bloody and raw.The manager came over whom by the way barely spoke proper clear english had no remark to the cooks actions other then to simply take it off the bill.Not really what I was expecting knowing my fiance could have gotten salmonella.

This morning, I took my three girls for breakfast at the Ihop on Uvalde rd, Houston…First they forget to bring my toast, then they want to charge me for a refill on the hot chocolates, which each one of us ordered. Then they want charge me a higher price on my drink, when it’s exactly the same thing that the kids got, and finally to to top it off I give them a discount card that doesn’t expire until September and they want to come back and say they’ve discontinued the discount, corporate rules….WHAT???, It’s a pitty that such a large corporation is so hard up for recognizing their coupons and refills, UNBELIEVABLE, and after a 20 minute wait to get sat down.

My group went to IHOP this morning (4/16/14). We usually have 8-10 people when we go.This morning we were paired up and we had coupons from the mail to use. They were “buy one entree'”and get the second one free with the purchase of two drinks. We were told by a manager that we could only use one coupon per table???? Why couldn’t every two people use them – that was how it was stated on the coupon and it didn’t say anything about how many were in the party or anything.
I feel that this was false advertisement to get people in and then you don’t honor your coupons. Now we won’t be going back and you will be losing business from us and others we talk to. Thank you for listening??? Rita Newberry, St. Joseph, MO

I am commenting on behalf of all the gluten free people in the world. IHOP should be a food chain that does consider making gluten free pancakes. It’s not that difficult to make a gluten free based batter. The business would gain so much more profit and popularity. The level of positive ratings would be significant, your business would all in all be one step closer to being Number one in superiority

Not a complaint! Asking you to please consider gluten free bread, biscuits, or pancakes for the hundreds of thousands of people with a gluten allergy due to celiac disease! Be the 1st chain to offer & watch every other chain restaurant follow you. Thank you

I wephop store In Perrine, Florida. Here I received the worst customer service ever waited 45 min for take out only to find out that it was just sitting there and no one bothered to let me know. Then when I asked the waiter for my food he straight up lied in my face and said he had just brought it out even though I had just watched him pick it up from the underneath the conter and give it to me. I checked the food and it was ice cold. So I asked for a refund and he walks away and leaves me waiting for another 10 minutes. Now im furious and asks for a manager which was no help. I explained what happened and no apology she leaves me there waiting as well. Now after an hour and still no food and an hungry child I’m finally helped. This place is not customer service friendly and don’t appreciate their customers.

I am a employee of Ihop store 1731 in California. I have been working there almost two years and have witnessed favoritism, nepatism and hostility towards the employees. I am a responsible person and have the full schedule of hours that no one else wants. I follow sop, most of the time but it does get hard when I am understaffed….we are constantly harassed about surveys, they post the surveys up and highlight and make comments such as this is embarressing, you call this customer service, very discouraging comments. I have worked in many restaraunts and have never been made to feel inadequate and worthless. I do everything they ask of me but customer surveys are unpredictable, even when I tell every table.Now they have decided to take away two of my shifts without telling me why…..I don’t see management much but they could call me and say that we have a problem to discuss before they take action. I will take responsibility if I messed up, but not knowing is stressful. But what I am most upset about is that I have co-workers calling me telling me that the asst. managers girlfriend who is a server there knows everything about why I am off the schedule and is telling others before I know. My disciplinary actions should be between me and management, they are violating my privacy sharing this info with their family and girlfriend all of whom work there. IHOP you could benefit more under new management. I am also being told that they took my days away hoping I will quit, guess what I am going nowhere, you want me gone fire me and it better be for a legite reason. This isn’t the first time something has happened like this, I just have never spoken up for myself. They have me on edge constantly, always fearing that I am going to be fired. This is not a healthy mental enviroment for anyone, I have seen so many people quit because of Marc Schamp and Job Ramirez!!!!!! Take classes on better people skills, stop treating the employees like everything problem is their fault, better management equals happy employees equals happier guests, simple and easy to understand…..

I came to your restaurant IHOP for the last three evenings
A gentlemen waited on me superbly. Soup and tea. When he left each night no one came and refilled my tea croft or asked if I would like anything else to eat or drink. Due to my vehicle brakes going out I came to your restaurant. I have been there before. Not one came after he left 3/26/24/3/27/14 and 3/28/14. I paid each night with a gift card and added a $1 gratuity. I dozed as no one came and got bored. I am a Senior and a different race or color of skin than the staff. I am a woman. It was necessary for me to be close to where my vehicle is being repaired. It is taking a while. I took my croft to the front the second night with the bill and paid it after the earlier shift. No one came to collect it. That is when I asked for additional hot water and went to the ladies room and then carried the hot water to my table. I dozed do to the late hour. I took my soup dishes and cups to the front and left. The third night I came in seated myself. A girl brought my soup and hot tea and two tea bags. I paid her and left a $1 gratuity. The third night 3/28/14 no one came to refill the hot water. I waited and dozed off. A large group came in and they got served. No one came to me. I dozed off waiting as I did the second night. When I woke up there was a $10 sitting on the table. I still had money on my gift card. Someone left the $10 on the table. The group had been calling me a rhino all night. The woman apparently in charge was at the front as I left. I was insulted by the $10 and worried who would bother me? The woman at the front said I should not come in any more. I still have money on the gift card. I told her the restaurant is open 24 hours a day. The 3/27/14 she spent cleaning and never came and asked me if I would like anything else to eat or a late meal or additional tea or water. nor on 3/28/14. I told her also that I had left a $1 for the gentleman who waited on me 3/26 and 3/27 and I did not think he had received it both nights. I also handed her the $10.00 cash and requested it to be given to him. He is dark short haired and lean and I thought Latino. She said they had no one like that. They do. He waited on me and my gift card, ticket and checking with the waiters and staff should evidence that. He is to receive it as he was the only employee that provided excellent service, showed no prejudice and showed me and every one he waited on respect. He was courteous and cared about the product and service. Please commend and reward him. Maybe even a management position. I know this is a company that cares. This is a neighborhood in which is diverse, Mormons, travelers, other religious groups, business persons, referring customers and Seniors and those dealing with emergencies are your customer. Also every economic level, race, color, age, health, handicapped and other and should receive service according equally pleasant and as long and as often as they come in. This is also a community in which military and political parties are your clientele. Yelp! Blog! Internet people read. So too word of mouth. Thank you.

I am a frequent customer at the IHOP in Brick, NJ. I’m usually provided good service, however the manager, whos name I’m not sure of, is always cursing around customers (including children) and talking badly about the customers. On 3/28/2014, I visited this location. They close at midnight, however I walked in at 11PM, and a waiter said to the manager, right in front of me, to say we were closed. The manager then came over, didn’t smile or say hi, just came over and said “What do you want?” I asked her nicely for a table and she said they were closed. Lights were in, doors were not locked, and they were still serving other customers.

Hello I just want everyone to know that in the city of industry Ihop on gale there is a waitress that I think is being abused for her work because I see every time I go in and have dinner I see her working hard as hell and her team mate is just chatting with her manager and an other waiter… I carefully looked at they’re name tags and the hard working waitress name is “evelia” and the very lazy and chatty waiters are “rudy” and “Jenny”…….. I asked a bus boy what the restaurant managers name was and he said it was “armando”… so I’m here having dinner at the moment and want everyone to know that I just witnessed that “evelia” is really working hard the back section of the restaurant and she looks like she needs help bit it’s not being provided by her manager, I haven’t seen him once since I’ve been here and has not visited my table at all… I just think that this waitress deserves more help and more recognition because I work in a restaurant as well and we all work as a team and that’s how it should be here….

I worked for ihop and it was the worst ran resturant i have ever worked for. On third shift the food takes way to long to get out of the kitchen, managers refuse to talk to angry customers which hurts us the servers. Managers cuss out employees infront of customers. I worked a 12 hr shift and when i was about 1 hour away from the end of my shift when one of the managers cussed me out infront of guests for my uniform being dirty. Mind you i had been working since 7pm the night before and she cussed me out at 6am. That night i had taken two parties one of 15, and one of 35.
Another inccident the general manager told me that she would not work with my school schedual because when i was hired 6 months before i said i had.open availabilty. School is very important to me and for a general manager say she would basiclly fire me if i didnt drop out of school.

They also took a month took get paper work done from being hired. I didn’t watch training videos and they kept me on training at minimum wage for 3 weeks and management did not even realize it!

I recently worked at the rockford il location. I’ve never met such Un responsible, disorganized organization at this place of employment. I was being sexually harassed continually by employees and told management and nothing was done. I also told man agent that there was drugs being sold and used at this location between employees. I called in sick because I got tired of dealing with the situation. My boss then called me, I then finally told her the real reason why I was not comming in and her reply was: thanks for leaving me hanging. Then she hung up! She did not care about the situation or me! I also did have tables getting up and just leaving after ordering because the food took to long. Management picks favorites! They don’t treat all employees fairly! I felt very unsafe and hurt. This location also has roachs! Very lazy management! Not very productive!

My mother was recently incarcerated and given a three year sentence. She then made me her power of attorney so I could take care of her needs. I went to go pick up her check from the location she worked at which is 11237 St Charles Rock Road in Bridgeton Missouri. I spoke to the general manager whose name is Hanon. I’ve never met a person so disrespectful & helpless than her. She was rude & inconsiderate. I asked her for my mother’s check & she told me that I couldn’t pick it up that Michele had to even after knowing she was incarcerated. I was told the night before I could pick up the check myself by the night manager, Heaven, yet when I got there the next morning it was just embarrassment from Hanon. I asked her what my options were & she said that my mom could call or write. After explaining how she’d have to press one to accept her call and as I was about to give her my mother’s address she said, “You can’t do that. How will I know it’s her.” It should not have been this much of a hassle for maybe a $30 check. I’ll be calling tomorrow before 5:00pm to make sure that my complaint has gone through about Hanon & to see what all I can do to get this taken care of. Thank you.

I was recently suspended from my job as a server at IHOP. I work hard daily and complete the task as a server more efficient than majority of my coworkers. Customers enjoy my service and often request to sit in my section. My managers receive compliments from customers daily expressing how pleasant their visit was, due to my execellent and efficient customer service. Since the beginning of my employment at IHOP I noticed the discrimination with the restaurant. When I was hired there was only 2 African American servers total. This caught my attention when I noticed how many African American woman put in applications vs. How many are pulled for interviews. I’ve seen management tell a black woman that the company is not hiring. But give a white woman an application and an interview appt. The same day. All the minority hired is located at the back of the house. Also as I was training my trainer stated how she don’t like to serve black people. I did mention this to management just to make them aware. The N word is used daily in a discriminatory manner all the time. I use to be blamed for intimidating my employees for demanding their respect, so to avoid conflict I went from passive aggressive to passive. Since it was brought to my attention that my coworkers were intimidated by me because I was a black woman . My appearance alone they feared. So this is when I began to “tattle tell”. Meaning go tell the manager when I am disrespected. I just have zero tolerance for disrespect. When disrespect was expressed at work by my coworkers I would just hold them accountable by making sure they understand that their actions are disrespectful. I’ve seen white servers bully other servers to the point they force them to quit or cry. Management even participated in going into someones personal property took their diary read it and was entertained as the servers taunted them and black mailed them about it. Last week this same manager was present when a white male server got into a heated confrontation with a black female guest to the point where the manager mentioned calling the police to calm the situation. This issue disturbed the entire restaurant but was not documented nor were there any consequences for his actions. But in the past a black female server was fired because she made a hot tempered comment to a coworker and a guest over heard. Once the white employees see the discrimination they take advantage and who could blame them. So this brings me to the situation where a white server not only disrespected me by making racial / prejudice comments but she taunted me with curse words and foul language. I reported the issue to my manager like following procedure. When I spoke with the district manager Eric Burtner he told me that the white server wrote a statement saying I threatened her. Hey never mention the racially discriminatory remarks she made nor does he accurately know the details of the issue. So he informed me that he will do things by procedure collect statements just from her point of view and get back with me to discuss consequences. Red flag went up when he never asked me for any statements. Fair is treat both parties equal but the red flag became brighter when I’m being view as the suspect when I was the victim in this case. So I returned to work finding ou tha I was suspended pending termination. She was on the floor working. And again no consequences to the white server.The white server expressed that she feared me. Not because of my actions but because she knows how disrespectful her comment was. Well Mr. Eric Burtner did state that he would speak with me before he made any decisions. I haven’t heard from him since this day Thursday March 6th . I have tried contacting him no reply. I just want the community to know how IHOP Hull street Chattanooga plaza treats its black employees and guest. I work hard for the company being that I take pride in what I do. I was promoted within a yr and have built wonderful relationships with regular customers. Its like this at IHOP management word over team member. I have had managers disrespect me and tell me they can because they are the manager. Yes I reported it but no consequences. Management likes to gossip about the things employees tell them about their personal life with guest and other employees. They claim to have that “open door policy” but they dont honor it. Due to this observation i am reluctant to share details about issues that I address with management. I just want to be heard since IHOP Hull street Chattanooga plaza not listening

My girls & I decided to go eat at IHOP today so that we could make a donation to a wonderful children’s hospital. We were seated immediately, yet waited 30 minutes to order. When our waitress finally came, she was rude and very loud. I had some questions about what to get because I planned on also getting a couple stacks of “free” pancakes. I was told I couldn’t get them without a donation so it wouldn’t be worth it. The whole reason for even going to IHOP during the week was solely to make a contribution! I was already spending a good amount of money, so what was the problem? This left me disgusted so I asked the manager for to- go boxes and left. The manager did not ask me what was wrong or anything. Furthermore, the restaurant was NOT busy, it was 2pm. I also NEVER got those buttermilk pancakes even though the tables all around me had. I spent more money than all those tables put together, yet I was given the attitude? And YES i still left a tip!

However, i maintained my politeness and began to order my food. Right in the middle of the order she said i am going to have to get with you in a minute. I asked why? Is there someyhibg wrong with the order? And she rudely replied no its because im swamped. I was already fed up with her rudeness from the beginning of the conversation so i told her cancel my order. Before i could finish she just hung up in my face!!! So i called back and of course the same woman answered the phone. I asked if i could speak to a manager and once again the phone was hung up in my face. This was by far the worst case of customer service i have ever seen and i am sure i am not the only one who has experienced this type of conduct from this location.

IHOP in Delaware makes their employees go out in extreme weather. On Monday March 3, 2014 the city, state and county offices were closed. All of the school districts closed and the Governor called a state of emergency. I think the corporate office received the memo that there would be a winter storm covering a number of northern states and accumulating an estimated 12″ on snow. I say that because the corporate offices were closed. However a retail location in Wilmington, Delaware was live and kicking wit a total 2 customers.

I contacted the manager and he said I was harassing him asking who made the decision to force the employees out in the snow. I also asked if there was a contingency plan in place in the event the storm became so severe that travel would not be possible or in the event of power loss as anticipated. I asked finally what happens if an employee gets stuck attempting to travel home? To all of these questions he responded “I answer to my bosses who make whose decisions.” I asked who they were and that I needed to be contacted today and he said they were busy because of all of the snow. So I asked what are they plowing or something? I think IHOP should be considerate of the weather in the pursuit of their profits. I will never eat at IHOP again…

We waited about 5 Minutes to be Seated, As we wear being Seated I Glanced and Noticed that there were only 2 other Tables being Occupied.
In others Words they had hardly No Customers…..
Well We ordered our Drinks and Food , it Took a Long Long Time to Finally get our Food and when we got it, We were Missing pancakes and also on my Little ones order it came with Sausage, So I said excuse me my son’s plate was suppose to come with Bacon not sausage, he is allergic to sausage. …The Waitress Rolled her Eyes and just stood there, Looking at me with a lost stare…..I asked can you please take this sausage back, Thank You.
We did not see Our Waitress back again. Not to ask us how Everything was or if we needed Refills or anything else. …..Finally ….When we did see Her again it was to Bring us The Check, Yes you heard right The Check……
I Turn to her and said can we get Refills on our Drinks and I was Told that she already totalled the Check and it will cost us Extra……I said that’s fine and said that’s why you should off checked to see if we needed anything else! ?
She Rolled her Eyes Again and went to get us Refills. …
Get this, Our New Adjusted Check got to our Table Before the Drinks??
It was Awful Experience. …Our Waitress was Rebeca 305.

I ordered crepes, over “med” eggs and crisp bacon. Crepes came cold, eggs were burnt around the edges with runny whites that looked like they never touched a warm skillet. The temp of the eggs were most likely warmer when they were “laid”! One of your servers walker up and down the aisle “coughing and/or clearing his throat” without attempting to cover his mouth. His name started with a “C”! I consumed “1” bite of the crepe, ZERO with the eggs, and 1 strip of blackened bacon. When the server dropped off the check, picked up the full plates, she asked if everything was OK! I told her of my concerns and we never saw an employee at our table again. NOT the BEST I have encountered in an IHOP! Probably not the worse either. I think I hear LePeep, Denny’s. Waffle House, or Cracker Barrel asking for my $$ from now on.

IHOP 2620 Central Avenue, Yonkers NY.

I would like to take the following moment to provide the following information to you, because I believe in customer service. We ‘ALL’ at one point or another serve

customers in different ways. Without our customers, we wouldn’t have a job, needless to say, a business.

I happen to go to this iHOP in the Yonkers NY location (close to a party city store), where I visited with my family (wife and two kids (2 and 8)) on Friday February

21st, 2014 at around 10:00 a.m. E.S.T. We sat down (restaurant was full) and were sat very far from the crowd so we asked our waitress if we can seat down by a booth

since wife and I were with the kids. They told us to pick our menus and showed us a booth that was been cleaned up and seat there, and we did.

We literally wait about 15 minutes before the waitress shows up (it is now around 10:15/20 a.m.). The waitress shows up and takes our order (no problem yet). We

ordered and organge juice w coffee for two, a toast, a Mac and cheese for one of my kids and a breakfast to share with my wife and my second kid.

We literally waited over 30 more minutes until I got tired an asked the waitress where is our food, coffee, etc. She gave me this look as if ‘I’ was bothering her and

said…I don’t know…let me find out, we’re very busy, and she stepped away. I just looked at my wife and said what? is she for real? what kind of response and

attitude is that? At that point I was just exhausted/furious. We almost walked out when the waitress showed up with TWO orange juices, a toast, and my son’s Mac and Cheese. She said the rest of the food is coming, and it never showed up. We rushed to eat, paid for our food and spoke to the manager who said she was the owner, and no one is going to fire her. She gave me this attitude because I told her that the way the restaurant was working was a reflection of hers. She didn’t pay any mind to what I said saying good bye sir a couple of times.

I have to say, this is the most disgusting experience I’ve had in a restaurant. This restaurant location seems to have a lot of complaint from customers and they mistreat them by not having enough staff to serve and too many employees not doing anything. But the worse is this lady/owner of this place. She’s absolutely rude and not customer service oriented. Because of this I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND IHOP to anyone, just go to any diner, they will treat you better. DISGUSTING!!

On Feb 22, 2014, I took my wife, my aunt, who is 92, and my cousin to the IHOP located on Highway 99/Aurora Ave, and about 100th St, North Seattle.
First complaint, the waitress was more interested in what was going on in the rest of the store.
I am aware that we have a diversity of ethnic considerations in our community. However, the young lady taking our order did not have sufficient English language capabilities, and could not understand what we were asking for.
I ordered chicken and waffles, for the first time. I still don’t know how that combination ever got put together. The chicken was very good, however, the waffles must have been frozen and heated in a toaster. What happened to scratch made? We both know I can buy frozen waffles and chicken bits at my local grocery store and nuke them myself so why go out for them?
My wife and cousin both ordered the breakfast sampler, senior menu. The pancakes were not fresh, one serving never arrived, the ham was scorched and tough, but the sausage and eggs were good. Hash browns, over oily and over cooked.
My aunt had one crepe with berries which she liked very much, but the waitress could not understand that she just wanted one, not two or three.
The coffee was okay, a little too dark and not hot.
So, when we were ready to leave, we couldn’t find the waitress to get our bills.
I do not like to hand my credit cards to people and have them disappear to some remote location to prepare a receipt. I have had bad experiences with the amounts changing and tips being added that I did not authorize. So, when I was given my bill, I went to the cashier site only to find that they don’t do bills out front. Reluctantly, my card disappeared and someone went with the waitress to help her figure it all out.
There were other people there waiting also, including two contractors who’s waiter had disappeared to go on break. They were fairly, and reasonably upset and were talking about just walking out.
To summarize: Your wait-staff is your front man. Your food is the only thing which will bring people back. While I am sure that there were patrons in your store who had a very good experience that day, we did not.
I am not looking for, nor do I expect, any sort of compensation for our experience. It is unfortunate that I now will be adding IHOP to my been there, done that list. Management needs to work on this situation.

I visited the ihop in summerville, sc today with my family and it was the absolute worst dining
Experience I have ever had. After waiting 15 minutes to take our drink order the waitress says I will be back to take your food order. She comes back 10 minutes later and we order. An hour later we still dont have our food and I ask her how much longer will our food be. Meanwhile 4 other tables that have sat down after us get there food. She never comes back to tell me how much longer it will take. So we get up to leave.. ascwe are leaving another lady is up at the counter complaining about the same thing. The waitress comes up there trying to get ghetto saying I cant help there were 2 orders ahead of your. I will never eat at another ihop again. You guys really need to take a close look at the restaurant in summerville. I have never been treated so rudely in a place when I was a paying customer. You have lost my whole families business and I will be sure to let everyone know about this incident!

I found this all very interesting reading. Has it ever occurred to any of you people in Corporate that you might go out anonymously both as customers and lower level employees, and check out these and other IHOPs to find out who is representing the business properly ? It might be wisdom. I have no complaints about our local IHOP, but if this is going on in so many places, it makes me wonder what is going on behind my back and behind the backs of other customers even in our nice local store.

I am concerned about an incident that took place at an Ihop franchise in Evansville Indiana where a young lady was assulted by a customer. The customer threw a glass of milk at the young lady’s face which shattered and resulted in the employee being bloodied and in need of medical attention. The young lady kept her composure even though she had blood all over her face spilling on her shoulders & apron. But the biggest slap in the face was that her superior told her that “you & your people dont know how to treat others”. The supervisor went on to fire another worker for standing up for the young lady. I guess it was a power trip or something but whatever the case may be this was highly offensive and while I understand that one biggot doesnt reflect on the quality of the brand but there was a great injustice done at the Evansville Indiana location that is in dire need of corporate intervention. Thank you.

I am a concerned employee of IHOP and I would like to know what the policy is if a manager is sick and needs to leave because there is a manager at the IHOP I work for who is sick and cannot do her job like she should and has called her GM to let him know but he told her to stay for her shift even though she had someone to cover who they are training to be a fill in manager. I think it is wrong to have an employee as sick as she is with the GM knowing to stay and do her twelve hour shift. So If someone could please contact me by email I would love to hear from someone.

I worked for the ihop in Elkhart. This past year a new District manager and managment staff was put on. They do not follow the Ihop SOP! They run out of food all the time. Serving food on dirty dishes because half the time they dont have soap for the dishwasher. They serve the foid on chipped and cracked dishes. They never clean the floor traps, they are so discusting. They have sewer flys all over. The cooks never wear hair nets or gloves, only when they know there is going to be a planned inspections. The cooks also eat on the line while cooking. The managers cuss at you and are very unfair! The new managers came in and atarted writing server that have been there years off the schedule forcing them to have to find new jobs, only to hire all hispanics in there. Not one a legal citizen! The food looks terrible and most of the time cold. Someone really needs to get a grip on the way that place is ran. I left on the count that one manager snapped on me while i was cashing out guest, for something that i had nothing to do with. I was getting so embarressed to work there. If we were to call the District manager for anything we were getting cut off the schedule! Ihop corprate yoy need to get in there and save that place! It has went down hill so bad this past year! You need to save the Ihop name quick!

This is one of the many videos that were taking at the restaurant that night that is now circulating virally. Because we are not from AL, we are having a hard time pin pointing the exact location. We do know that it is not the 4472 locations because that one has been ruled out. This is what you call poor customer service and she refused to serve us for no apparent reason at all. Also, if you notice in the video, when she was asked for a corporate number, she stated, “You can call on Monday and get it because I am not giving you nothing!”

Here are the details as to what happen that night. We work in the film/music industry and had just left an event. Several celebrities accompanied us and usually when we come to ihop to eat, they never have an issue sitting us in the back because of the sensitivity of being with people in the industry. So as usual, we speak to the host once we got there (who was as sweet as a doll by the way) and ask if we could be placed in the back. She told us that the area was closed however, because of the situation, she didn’t think her manager would mind. The manager was actually at the register by the host stand, so we were able to see her (the manager) and her response and reaction. When asked by the host, she rolled her eyes and said no without any explanation. The host came back over and told us that she was sorry but the manager would not allow. I then explained to her again why we were requesting to be seated in the back. The host then goes back to the manager and asks again. Still able to see her (the managers) she then finishes ringing up her last customer and walks over to the hostess stand. As she was coming, she pushed me. Of course I was expecting an apology for the physical contact and after waiting a few seconds realizing that I was not going to get it, I then said to her excuse me, you just pushed me. She didn’t respond to me. She snatched up several menus and just walked away leaving us they’re standing. The host said we could follow her to the back. This is when the camera’s came on. One of the guest with us stated, “Are we sure we want to eat here?” Being that it was late, we just said we will eat here but she would not get a tip. That is when she basically went off. After placing the menus on the table, she then begin to snatch them up saying that she did not have to seat us back there and that we were talking about not tipping. We then brought to her attention that she was the reason why because of her attitude. She then started snatching up the menus and told us to leave or else she would call the police. I then brought to her attention that she bumped me and did not even apologize and her response was “ok!” which you will see through out the video. When asked for a corporate number, her response was, “You can call back on Monday morning because I am not giving you nothing!”

To push someone intentionally is called assault and it is not tolerated well by me at all!!!!!!!! I never want to be in a situation where I feel threaten and that is exactly what she did! We were embarrassed by the behavior and feel that it should never be accepted in any establishment. Because of her actions, we had several people that were at the same event that met us in the parking lot and left because of her actions. If you have tape, please pull it and you would see her push me. We ended up going to another ihop where we received great!!!!!!! Service. The waitress was actually tipped more then our bill and our bill were large. I need to be contacted immediately by someone to resolve this issue! Thanks

I” webt in an ordered me coffee and a country fried steak with eggs. I was disappointed cus my food was cold and my coffee tasted old. So i decided to complainto the manager and it happened to be Bryan the gm looking red eyed and smeplled like an over load of cologne whitch you can also smell the scent of marijuana. I explain the problem and he said i can make you a new one and i said no i dont want a new plate so he took my plate and threw it the trash! With no explanation he told me to leave.

Refused services from a white waitress because of the color of myself and fiancé. We were in IHop in Summerville, SC and had a waitress refuse to wait on us due to an interracial couple. I normally do not care what people think, but not to be served because of color is wrong and she does not deserve to work in a field such as this if she can not handle doing her job regardless of the color of people’s skin. Nothing was done in this matter the manager who was black knew who we were talking about and could only apologize. The waitress that waited on us had to come from the other side of the restaurant to wait on us.

Was today on 1/2/14 and my manager has threatened me with a warning for taking precaution and safty of my life I didn’t want to slip and slide on the roads and i am not one to call out unless of an injury or illness but there are people who call out every weekend because of them being drunk or hung over but I get a warning for calling out because of a storm? I think that is unexceptable .

The only thing any business including ihop will respond to is either a message to the BBB or a boycott of their entire business. Ihop is no different from any other business these days. They are greedy bastards that make their employees work on holidays while the big wigs get to spend it with their families. The is greed nothing more. Y’all want corporations to start listening to the consumers then we have to make them understand that we the consumer control if they succeed or not. The consumer not the business dictates prices. Until the consumers gather in record numbers and force these corporations to realize this then they will continue to be greedy and corrupt!

IHOP is becoming crooked as of this week, 12/17/2013. My local IHOP in arden NC has the manager making the employees fill out the surveys on the reciepts and if they don’t than they get suspended or their hours cut. I know for a fact that it is not company policy to suspend or cut employees hours just because of surveys not being filled out because I called corporate and asked them. Well this is happening where I live and to an immediate family member of mine. And now she isn’t able to get her children gifts for Christmas. Good job IHOP!!! Your taking Christmas presents from little kids. There is action being taken by the employees so I suggest someone from corporate get on the phone or come personally to the IHOP in arden NC on Airport rd. This is completely unfair and down right ridiculous. I’d love to hear back from you, I’m not expecting you to though since nobody does but if you have any dignity left and don’t want a bad reputation than I’d like to see a reply. I’ve been as nice as possible about this situation bu if something isn’t done soon, and I mean SOON than its gonna get pretty ugly.

On 12/2/2013 I was relased from my job at IHOP on Warwick Blvd after being verbally harrased and disrespected by a co-worker, who speaks and handles all employess in the building the same way. The management PaulDale was on site and in the same room when the worker addressed me first and started to call me names and yell and curse at me in front of all of my co-workers including my manager Paul Dale who was the only manager on duty at the time and he completely ignored the matter. I went to my General Manager Robert Hopkins as well who told me to hush in front of another worker Max Phal when I repeated what was said to me.
My manager Robert Hopkins claim he spoke with the co-worker after the first situation happened in November. Under my employee handbook General Policies Section 2.13 Violence in the workplace and harrassment and threats are strickly prohibited. So after the first time this man was spoken to in November, for him to be allowed to call me “ghetto, dumb, and stupid” should have been acknowledged and corrected immediately.
That was not the case my manager ignored the entire situation even when I brought it to his attention as the co-worker was still yelling, fussing and cursing. After I realized the managers both shift and General Manager wouldn’t take actions on the matter after I brought it repeatedly to their attention. I clocked out and went outside to smoke in the smoking area and waited to speak to the co-worker who also smokes in a private manner after things slowed down inside. There was only three employees outside at the time getting in their cars to leave because of shift change, none which was management and all three of them are a witness to the event. I spoke with the employee and asked him to please stop speaking to me in that manner and it wasn’t necessary for him to treat me and my co-workers that way. He proceeded to tell me that there was nothing I could do about what came out of his mouth and nobody was going to do anything including management, bragging about how he had punched one of the managers(Paul Dale) in the face and still had his job so what did I think I could do. I saw that there would be nothing I could say to make things right and started to walk away as I did he yelled out and I quote “yea keep walking you F***ing B*****”. After I just finished speaking to him about the names he was calling me in my job. Out of anger and frustration I did pick up a medium size ashtray and threw it his way but it didn’t touch his person and I have notorized witness statments from the people that was outside with me stating exactly what happened.
I am not seeking for my job back, but I have been with IHOP since 2005, and have served as a manger, cook, and waitress. On 12/4/2013 I asked my manager Paul Dale the only manager on duty to write me a discharge paper stating the date and reason I was terminated and he refused saying he had nothing to do with the decision and he would get my manager Jimmy who wasnt even on the premises or shift to write my letter. Jimmy did write my letter and I recieved it on 12/5/2013 but the details of the letter are all false, and hear say that is not correct. He claim he have witnesses but nothing in writting as I do. This letter that was written is hindering and will further hinder me from seeking further employment with other companies and IHOP’s because of the false information that is written making the incident look as if I attacked my co-worker and doesnt even go into any details about his verbal disrespect, this not being the first time we have had a problem, or my managers not handling this situation correctly.
I understand that by me throwing a object I did break the employee handbook as well, my complaint is if the manager on duty had of handled the situation when it started and I came to them instead of brushing it under the carpet as they always do, I would have never had to seek for my own self-respect. As a employee if I cannot rely on my managers to have my back when I am being wrongly mistreated, then at some point as humans we all get tired of being stepped on and walked over.
As a woman in the workplace it is already hard to maintain a business relationship with the men at my establishment without having to deal with the sexual, and derogatory comments that are made to not only me but me and my co-workers.
I only won’t justice and the truth to be written. I never hid the fact that yes I did clock out and wait to speak in private outdoors with a co-worker about a problem we was having, and yes I did throw a object, but as management these issues should have been resloved long before I had to take matters into my own hand.

He said he was buzy and didn’t have time for my bs. I also overheard him speaking so disrespectful to his employees. I will never ho back there ever again.

I have worked at the #3445 since August of this year and I would like to compliment Dan, the evening manager for such a great job! I have worked in the restaurant business for 40 years, so I have had quite a few managers. I have learned how to treat your employees and not to treat them. Dan won’t ask you to do any thing that he would not do and I find that impressive! Instead of barking orders, he gets right in there and helps! The restaurant is more than efficiently run, seating is fair, he goes to your tables and personally asks how every thing is, when you ask for some thing, it’s done and his personality leaves you feeling calm so it is a much, much happier, calmer, environment for me to do my job! Thank you Dan!

I just started working at IHOP and had to quit because the manager was so rude and insensitive. I really loved working there and taking care of my customers, but I am hyper-sensitive and can’t work in a enviroment where I am made to feel inferior. The servers that can work there are either uncaring themselves or have the ability to not take things personally. But some of us, like me, do not have a sensitivity switch we can just turn off. I am not going to change my character, or who I am, just to make exceptions for a poor manager that is miserable and controlling. Its not right. The person in the wrong should be the one to change. My faith is in God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I try and act according to what my God teaches. I did turn the other cheek at this place, but I could not handle the pain in my heart from the constant barge of negativity. Maybe Jesus could have handled it, but that just proves to me once more how amazing He is and that I am not God. I hope IHOP gets it together before they get a black eye and ruin their reputation. I can also attest to the unsanitary conditions after working there. When the bottom line is money, then service is sacrificed and employees become cogs in the wheel. When the emphasis is on seving God and others, then an organization can truly blossom, but this requires faith and sacrifice. You can’t serve two masters. God bless you IHOP.

A frien and I visits IHOP Store #578 for lunch. The things I had a perfect seat to view the kitchen/serving area. The things I witnessed was unbelievable. Staff literally sweeping (broom and dust pan) while people were eating. Waitresses rubbing their face, their nose, scratching their heads, then picking up orders for delivery. The one young lady that stood out to me had reddish light tone hair in an afro style it was a routine for her, a few others were standing around counting their tips and then reaching for orders….nobody washing their hands or any site of sanitizer being used. The thing that blew me away was a gentleman in a light purple shirt standing in the area with the waitresses and he too was handling money and passing food from the prep shelf. I asked to see the manager, and the purple shirt comes over. I asked him two questions; do you have carpet sweepers, his reply was yes….then why are they not being used, it is rude and nasty to be sweeping when people are eating? His excuse was we have to keep the area clean, he obviously missed the point! I then asked him why was he handling money and not. Washing his hands before handling people’s food….he swore up and down that did not happen. I told him I am sitting here watching you and your staff, he continued to deny he was doing anything wrong.
Just before I got ready to leave, I asked the gentleman’s name and was told Matt (Mohammad Rosendale – spelling maybe off), the General Manager….in his position he should know better, but I guess he was sitting the example, which explains why the waitress staff was conducting themselves in such a unsanitary manner! You never know who is sitting in your dinning room, these employees including the General Manager need to mindful of their behavior! I look forward to your take on this matter. I can be reached at 571-256-XXXX.

Message Body
My Grandson and I went to the Joliet, Il. Larkin Avenue store today, Sunday, November 3,2013 @ 10:30 A.M. We waited 45 minutes for our food, after we were seated, that’s a long time to keep a seven year old occupied. When we finally received our food, the bacon (picture attached) was burnt beyond recognition. The waitress immediately replaced the bacon. Bacon looking like that should have never left the kitchen. The waitress said the cook told her to serve it anyway. I had also ordered toast with “heavy butter”, the toast was almost dry, and no extra butter on the table. By the time the waitress returned I had finished my meal and the toast was cold and hard. I am very disappointed with the quality of the food and the manner in which it was served. As a senior, on a fixed income I have to be very careful as to how and where I spend my money. I really don’t think I can take a chance with spending any of my income at the IHOP chain in the future.

My fiancé` and I went to your restaurant ( in Boutte, Louisiana) today (10-09 2013) for lunch. We were having a late lunch, it was 1:45 P.M. There was hardly any other customers in the place. A waitress asked if we wanted a table or booth and we said table. She said follow her and placed two menus on the table and left. We sat there for about 10 minutes when another waitress asked if our drink order had been taken. I said we have not been waited on at all. So she took our order. I ordered the beef pot roast dinner and my fiancé` ordered fried chicken strips with fries. It took forever for the food to come out. About 25 minutes. I took a bite of the pot roast and quickly pushed the plate away from me. It was spoiled! I had a choice of salad or soup with that entrée` and I chose soup. It was potato soup. I took a spoon of that and it too was spoiled! We asked to speak to the manager(her name was Shelly). We told her what happened and she was very apologetic and took the price of the meal off our ticket and said the next time we came in we could get a free meal. She said that the kitchen did not rotate the food like they are suppose to. We stopped going to the IHOP in Houma, Louisiana for the same reasons! We have no intentions of going back to the restaurant in Boutte, Louisiana either! We don’t care if they give us 10 free meals! Just knowing that I actually tasted 2 items on the menu that was spoiled is disgusting! There was a time that I use to love going to IHOP! The food was fresh and had a wonderful taste. That has been quite some time ago! Now I just see it as a place that I see as a potential for food poisoning! I will not like you on Facebook just to be sure IHOP sees my comment! How absurd to say I like you just to tell you how lousy your restaurant has become!

Ok. My girlfriend worked a 14 hour shift and shes only 17, working till 6 o’clock in the morning she tiped out the night with 376.00 but when she came home she only had 6 dollars in tips to her self. Now this don’t make sense to me but that sounds retarded to me. Ohh and the guy she was working with only tiped out 8 dollars in a 4 hour shift, he must of only got one person that night. “No” ,they had to add his and her stuff together. So amarillo Ihop on western I will not stop until you pay my girlfriend what yall owe her. Even if I have to get a attorney. So if cooperate reads this, they better do somethan or I will. Thankyou.

IHOP in Burleson, Texas sucks. I am sick of poor customer service. No one values their job anymore. Everyone who worked on Oct 3, 2013 needs to be fired especially the manager. She was rude and uncaring about me as a customer. The silly lady ignored me when I wanted to check out and the waitress never showed back up after she gave us our drinks. Another person bought us our food, but no one showed back up to check on our table. Asked the dumb manager about this when I was checking out and she said the waitress went on break. That was a long break and I was like what the hell. I will not be giving my money to that IHOP anymore and will encourage anyone who will listen not to return.

OMG!!
I am reading all of these negative comments about horrible visits to IHOP and I have one to add myself! What is going on with IHOP?? Don’t they care?? I even asked to be contacted by the corporate office and/or get my money back-and nothing. We went to the location of Maple Grove, MN and were not greeted by anyone There was no host around, finally she showed up and not looking very happy to be employed. We waited about 15 minutes before the waitress came to see if we wanted something to drink. Then another 15 minutes before coming back to see if we wanted to order food. Once we placed our order we waited, waited, waited and finally ran out of coffee. Couldn’t find anyone (no one-not even a waitress from other tables) to get us coffee, so I walked up to the hostess stand and stood there for a while. I almost went in back to help myself to coffee. Finally-a breathing human being got me coffee. When the food arrived it was cold pancakes, hard eggs, and cold bacon. When I used the salt shaker the salt was so wet it had puffed up to the top of the shaker, I went to four different tables to find a salt shaker that worked-couldn’t find any so I dug my finger in and pushed loose the wet salt to get to the dry salt underneath. I took pictures of all of this fiasco. Came home and emailed IHOP looking for answers, a phone call, or something of value. Zip, Zilch, Nada…………..I guess they do not care if their business goes out of business due to lack of customers.
Will NEVER GO to another IHOP the rest of my life.

IHOP Store#4720 70 Boston Turnpike,SHREWSBURY, MA 01545-3601 (508) 791-9328
———————-
On Sep 8th , around 11 AM My husband and I visited our local IHOP Store which we have been a customer of theirs for years, we ordered our breakfast including coffee, Omelet and pancake , The server who suppose to bring our order her name Libia (Server 30019) came back with Omelet and pancake and when we asked about our coffee she said the coffee machine is not working! so I asked her if she knows how long does that take she answered she does not know , she said ” I pushed the bottom and is not working” !!! so I asked her if she can ask her manager to see how long it may takes because we are in IHOP for breakfast and is surprising that IHOP coffee machine is not working , with very bad attitude She said ” I already answered your question coffee machine is not working and I don’t know how long it takes to be fixed”!!! she said we only have decaf if you want , we said that’s fine , which when she brought the decaf coffee it was a very cold coffee that you could drink it like water! I asked her for cream and she put her hand near my face and took cream from another table and slammed on the desk!
We were very unhappy and surprise about this we did not want to deal with that person who had a very unprofessional attitude so we informed another IHOP employee about the situation and while we were talking to that IHOP employee , Libia jumped in the middle of our conversation , took the flask and came back and slammed the flask of coffee on our desk without saying anything and left !!!
This time the coffee was nice and hot but We were very upset and surprised to be treated like this in our favorite restaurant ,and we couldn’t stay there anymore ,so unfinished with our breakfast, we asked one of the employee to bring us the bill so we can leave.Who wants to wake up and head to her long time favorite restaurant and be treated with this bad attitude? I am sure No one! I have been in different IHOP stores many many times and always had felt that warm and welcoming environment and this was my first time seeing this.
Your customer’s are Doctors, engineers and high educated people, So I think this is the management responsibility to train the servers being professional, before they start serving customers.
Definitely Libia might better benefit from a customer service training class since she is the person who is face to face to your customer and is a true example of how you allow your company to do business (remember, the customer is always right). Last, Libia definitely deserves a written warning along with the class. I am trusting your corporate office ,to forward this serious issue to the store manager . I will be awaiting IHOP stor#4720 ‘s response on this issue but would appreciate an acknowledgement from you, the corporate office of IHOP, to insure me that you are dealing with this issue. I have provided my contact info at http://www.ihop.com/contact-us If I don’t hear back from management of IHOP Store#4720 in 5 business days , I will take my complain to BBB .
Thank you
Rana

Well to start the service wasn’t bad then got worse. The Food was very good however took for ever to come out. I called the manager over to see if she would except a coupon I had on my phone and she told me no that is wasn’t her region. This was the only reason the general manager Andra even came to the table. When it can time to pay the manager took one bill that was being paid with $100.00 bill and brought back the change. The other 2 couples paid exact change. Our bill was $21.26 we left $40.26. She took for ever to bring our change, I got up to go to the restroom and my husband went out side to take a phone call. I came back to the table and my husband was gone and no change on the table and 2 couples still sitting there and I went out side. When we got to our destination 2 hrs away we had to pay to get in and my husband asked me if I had the change should have been $19.00 I said no I thought he had it. So I called and spoke to the Andrea the manager. Explained what had happened. She said she would talk to CJ and have $15.00 in the safe for me Tuesday 8/27. I couldn’t get there 8/27 I called yesterday and spoke to manager Terry and he said nothing is there nothing in safe. Said Andrea would be in Thursday. I just hung up with Andrea and she said she spoke to CJ and she had told her that she was told to keep the change that she did such an awesome job. Not true! Just wanted you to know the type of people you have serving your restaurant and We will not be back!

The Wheaton location was awful. And not only that but corporate has failed to even contact us because the owner of the location refuses to do so based on our “threatening behavior.” You have cameras in that ihop…pull up the footage and show me how we were threatening. Or maybe look at the manager putting his finger in our faces, yelling at us, and following us to our car. I filed two complaints to corporate Guest Relations and they did not follow up with us and are saying they will NOT either because the owner of that franchise refuses to do so. The manager that yelled at us flaunted that his step-father owned that franchise so I am not at all surprised that our complaint didn’t go anywhere. Which is why I asked to go further than just the owner. But apparently corporate doesn’t care about its customers experiences at their locations if the owner of that franchise is okay with it. I am appalled with the service received at the IHOP, and I am appalled with the customer service received after. I have not received an apology or anything. I was also ILLEGALLY charged for a meal that I never signed the check, nor saw the check. I have receipts to prove it as well. You cannot legally charge people for whatever you like when they leave the restaurant that is illegal. And I am appalled with IHOP’s response to this. I will make it a mission to share my experience and spread the lack of customer service received. This is very upsetting.

Mr. Wiiliam Rather. Please address these issues of these promblems at store location #1497 in Lake Charles LA. The AM Andre Chizel did a line of coke right in front of me. Then I saw him do some in his car. Hes on salary so he leaves the store for hours to meet & greet his boyfriend. On appox. 8/6/13 at around 11:00 p.m. I watched him take a hundred out of his pocket & put it in the safe. Someone stole money off of one of my tables I reported it & they fired me because I refused to work around thieves. We had 36 new camaras instaled but they still refused to roll them back. Chimara feeds & sleeps with half the police force & stands outside for long periods of time chating & giggling with them all. When I was on the day shift Andre was gone for so long that he barley made it back in time for the OAR lady. Its really bad. Employees get drunk on duty, theres weed smoking in the back all night. Every night. I have so much more to report. I even have evidence. Ive been an employee at IHOP for a year in a half. I never believed

my mother -in-law and i. ate recently at the ihop in bremerton,washington and had an experience i felt worthy of contacting the corporate office, i saw the commercial for the waffle special on tv and it sounded good(like most ihop entres)when we ordered it ,i noticed that for $7.99 you could order the whole waffle (as opposed to half) , the server told me that the $7.99 price was for the waffle only(not the combo for $6.99)she said that was a good deal ,becausethe waffle was $7.99 alone. she did not explain that it was a special and not eligible for the senior discount(thurs.nite)as we left after dining,i glanced at a menu and noticed that the waffle combo was 7.99 for a whole waffle combo w/ no fruit , that made NO sense, they did not have proper knowledge of the menu. this was a manager , could you please address this issue ,i feel her explanaion made no logical sense. thank you

The manager Michele Brown & Rachid A are stealing from Ihop 1471. Michele B re-opens Paid tickets and 100% comps out the meals & pockets the money, Rachid A feeds his family & police friends for free and he takes money out of the register and pays his friends for doing security for him. He by far is the worst manager ever.

I had a HORRIBLE experience at my local Ihop yesterday, that I frequently visit, but plan to never again! There was a sign as my boyfriend and I walked in, that said to “Like us on Facebook and you get a free short stack of pancakes”, so as we were seated I went and liked Ihop on facebook. It says on the facebook page that if you do not receive your code for a free short stack to message them. Instead I just asked my waitress who rudely said she knew nothing about it and called over the manager. The manager “Edna” came over with an annoyed attitude, the waitress asked how this facebook “thing” worked. The manager than asked me when I liked us on facebook and I said today. She said it takes two days to receive the coupon. Being disappointed, I said “Well that’s not what it says on facebook or on the sign you have in the entrance.” she replied “Well wait two days!” in a very rude manner! I then explained that I will not be returning in two days! It is not stated that it takes two days to receive. I told Edna that and she threw her hand up in the air, said, “Yeah, I’ll tell them” as she walked away! Knowing she was just writing me off, I knew she would not “tell” anyone, so I decided that Ihop’s management needed to be notified! I was shocked at her attitude and the way she spoke to me as a costumer!! Even the waitress said she was extremely rude! I am so upset at the way I was treated by your manager and plan to not go back to that Ihop!

About a week ago my husband, myself and my sister went to IHOP in Durham ,N .C . for breakfast. We were seated then we waited, waited, waited for over 30 minutes for anyone to even stop at the table. We got our drinks then we had to wait some more for someone to take our order. We ordered our food then we waited ,waited, waited finally our food came but my sister got the wrong order and mine and my husband’s food was cold. My sister sent hers back and when she was served it was cold. Needless to say we will not be back.

Hello I am an employee at the spring creek iHop in va. I am very dissatisfied with your managers. I was hired as a 1st shift member and yesterday I was told another employee “requested” me to be on her 2nd shift team. I was not asked and it was not even duscussed with me. I came in and had a new schedule. I’m usually 7am-3pm and that works due to my babysitter. The entire staff knows this. I have worked late on occasion but only when I had checked and gotten someone else to watch him. I have no other options I’m not a princess who’s family is a tight knit family where I’m pampered. I struggle on a daily basis to make sure I can work and be a mom and do schooling and pay bills and still have time to breath so I don’t have a panic attack and get set up on pills again. I have made myself valuable from time to time and gone out of my way and my job description to prove myself an asset to this company. Only brig there 3 months I think I am interested in climbing the corporate ladder HOWEVER I do NOT take kindly to my job and me and my children’s livelihoods threatened ecause YOUR manager took it upon himself to change my schedule from what I was hired for. Yes the day in question is a holiday so what? I could’ve worked the holiday I I ha had my original schedule. I NEVER refusse to work today I only stated prior to and during this schedule change. “CERTAIN” members get to do as they damn please and yet the one of us who are parents and actually take this stuff seriously WE get left hung out to dry. Why is it that a man who makes it clear he is no good and uses drugs at work and starts fights (physical and verbal) in the work place gets chance after chance after chance yet I get my butt crewed because I have a strict babysitter and expect a strict MORNING schedule. I don’t think it’s too Much to ask that I should not have to fight management on the fact of wether or not my babysitter will NOT watch my children after dinner time. I’m very unhappy displeased insulted and most of all disgusted at the management you have in your ranks. People are out there like me. Single moms with kids no one in family that is willing to help. We are out here trying to make an honest dollar to get by but we are treated like we are nothing more than a mangers dummy doll. We need jobs too, but why should we have to be used to do whatever while the young kids and other people get special treatment.

I am a customer of Ihop, I have no ofilliation other than as a customer. I am sorry to hear that your manager has changed your schedule without prior notice. That is simply rude and uncalled for especially if he knows that you have a child in daycare. As an employee you must know that he has the right to change your schedule but he also must understand what being in a managerial position Entails. Sounds to me as if he is not ready nor should be a manager. He needs more grooming and maybe should be demoted so he can see how inconvenient it is to have a schedule changed on you when you show up to work.

I just want to write you about your place of business in westchester off tylersville rd in Ohio, myself and another employee wanted breakfast so I tried to order only to be told to give them a few minutes, I thought they were putting me on hold until my line went busy they had hung up. I called back in 7 min they said the same thing can you give us a few min I said well no because someone already asked me that and I’m at work needing lunch the gentleman then said well I’m not able to take your order so I will place the phone down and when we’re able someone will be back I said why don’t we take our business else where, he said ok then hung up. I decided to call back and ask for the manager only to find out the manager was the one I spoke to both times before, I was appalled because as a manager he should have just taken my order however he didn’t and didn’t see anything wrong with this when I brought it to his attention.

I ended up having someone else to call and order, when we got our food my steak looked like it had been chopped through so I ended up taking it back to get my money back only to find all but two staff members standing outside smoking cigarets I’m sure you could amagine my disscust.

Dear Sirs:

To make a long story short, I was given a criminal tresspass warning in Seguin, Texas at
your location while I was waiting for 2 friends that I was meeting there to eat supper. The day manager said that I had been there everyday asking about one of the waiteress(Wendy Robinson) to see if she was alright after some of her ex-husbands relatives beat her up. She has 5 children ages 2 thru 9 and that is alot of responsibility for 1 person, especially a single mother with a job. I am concerned and I am just trying to help her.

The way I feel now , because of this criminal trespass warning is confussed and upset. I am trying to be a solution to this situation, not a problem. If we cannot work something out together then I will talk to an attorney about what avenues I have available to me for resolving this situation.

Thank you for your time and I hope we can get something worked out.

Sincerely,
