As we are well aware, I like to eat out and I do it WAY too often. Today, for brunch or actually lupper (lunch/supper) or linner (lunch/dinner), I went to the new iHop in St. Catharines. It is where the old Golden Griddle used to be along the service road.
I have been to iHops in the US, they are amazing. I have also been to the iHop on Lundy’s Lane in Niagara Falls and I will NEVER return to it again. It was way over-priced and not at all like they are in the US. So, the trip to the new St. Catharines iHop was a gamble.
Turns out that this iHop is just like the ones in the US – huge menu and reasonably priced. Beats the one in NF hands down. The food was great, a little on the pricy side but not too bad. The service is slow though, really slow. It took nearly and hour and a half to get in and out so if you are in a hurry, forget it. They have redone the interior which is good, the Golden Griddle was showing its age and that was years ago when I was there last.
All in all, a good place to eat, if you have the time. I will be back, hopefully the service will speed up a bit. As for eating the rest of the day, I doubt that I will need to, I had more than enough food to be sure.
