The former “Saturday Night Live” star was praised online for his positive attitude after he and his daughter were told by a teenage employee at the restaurant that there would be a lengthy wait to be seated, prompting the star to politely exit the restaurant.

“For the record, I only left the IHOP because the nice woman told me the all-you-can-eat deal didn’t apply to the milkshakes,” the star joked.

In a follow-up post, Rodas also noted that Sandler was sporting a large beard at the time, which she’d never seen him do publicly before.
“Not realizing its Adam Sandler and telling him its a 30min wait and him ofc leaving bc hes not going to wait 30mins for IHOP,” she wrote on the video.
“Pleaseee come back,” she captioned the post.
