Me and my boyfriend visit ihop on Mercury Blvd, in HAMPTON VA last Sunday and the service was amazing. Our server Vonnie was full of happniess and very nice. She made sure we had everything we needed to prepare us for our breakfast last Sunday. If she wasn’t available, she made sure someone came to check up on us. I’m not from Virginia but I will recommend anyone to go there to eat. The entire staff was nice from begaining to end! Wonderful experience. Great job Vonnie, we will be back very soon.
