IHOP has been in Canada since 1969, predominately with locations in the west.

I find all the restaurants in Niagara Falls downtown to be overpriced - they jack up all their regular prices.
If you stay in a hotel close by, (or attached to) then it's built into your stay. (ie breakfast included)
Every so often mail outs (email) offer a deep discount on your hotel stay, while also including breakfast.
Ihop is one of those restaurants, but there are better breakfasts other places.
Why settle for pancakes when you can watch someone cook scrambled eggs right in front of you for the same money?

for sure. Somehow us two adults and 1 kid came out with a 90$ bill for breakfast at IHOP. Later that day, we had a much more delicious dinner where we were stuffed, at Scaddabush and paid $80. Something doesn't line up.
Please update your profile to include your city. It's helpful when you post about something regional ucp.php?i=ucp_profile&mode=profile_info

I see what you're saying. No more "free" breakfast with a hotel stay @ Fourpoints hotel. Packages now only include a $15 voucher for breakfast. That brings the bill down to a wow wee wow $75.

I never eat or stay in Niagara Falls for this reason, its expensive before this. We just do day trips and have lunch at Tim Hortons. It is a cash grab.

Those I find extremely disappointing … not just cost … but they also never seem the same as what you get food or taste wise vs stateside
Don't forget the hoards of Asian tourists also!

I don't mind the offerings - LOVE IHOP, Dennys, TGI Fridays etc, but I won't pay the crazy Niagara prices.

When I go, I just stick with the Casino buffet. Best deal ever!

I can't believe I have never tried Wimpy's. Gonna try the breakfast soon, maybe next wk.

They do a really nice all-inclusive Thanksgiving dinner each year, too (although I'm not sure if they'd had it the past couple due to covid), the pumpkin soup is amazing. Overall, the food there is surprisingly good. They don't skimp, although maybe it depends on location. I go to the one at Bathurst and Sheppard.
