This Denny's now has gluten-free items clearly marked on their menus. I suspect the same is true for all locations. There are quite a few options available.

Stopped at this Denny’s based on a previous review. They have very minimal options for GF. I got a steak and mashed potatoes and fries for lunch which was decent. Was just expecting more options.

No gluten free pancakes, bread or waffles. Only gf English Muffins. I got the Santa Fe Skillet and it was delicious. So I was only 25% disappointed about no gf pancakes. Yes, gf items are marked on the menu which is very helpful.

Their GF menu is sad. Server didn’t have any training and didn’t know what gluten was. Thought eggs had gluten in them. They do not take precautions for cross-contamination. Mediocre at best.

The staff was friendly and receptive but I would not say Knowledgeable about gluten issues. The menu of dedicated gf items is small but there are several things that can be made gf with omission or substitution. I would not recommend for celiac people but those of us that are sensitive can find options.

Never had a chance to go. Natasha the “manager” couldn’t understand my questions about celiac. Then when I explained it, I was told we are not responsible for your allergy. I said so you have gluten free items on your menu but you are unwilling to take precautions. She again said we aren’t responsible for your allergies.

My husband called back and asked for the manager and we were passed to Natasha. He asked Natasha what she knows about gluten and as she laughed, she then said I tried to explain and she was rude. My husband let her know how offensive she was to laugh about food allergies.

We won’t be going here ever.

I was very satisfied that Melody and the manager Brian took the task of making my breakfast gluten free. Melody made sure that they grilled my gluten free English muffin on a section of the grill that was unused instead of toasting it in the common toaster. They made sure to use fresh cracked eggs and not the prepared egg mixture. Be sure to emphasize the importance of separation and you will be fine eating here with sensitivities. Celiac would be risky due to cross contamination in the kitchen as it is not a dedicated facility.

Friendly helpful and concerned staff.

Zesty Nachos are shown as GF, but was told they cook chips in a non-dedicated fryer.

I had a skillet meal. It was good, but greasy.

That was the most insane experience. We only forced ourselves to stay because of the gluten free menu. First, nobody would acknowledge us when we walked in, and kept walking by. Finally we sat. Not crowded, and over an hour to get food. First, they brought my son’s side of apples 20 minutes before everyone else’s food came. Then, the orders were wrong. Cheese in eggs (that was not ordered), a missing sandwich and toast took another 15 minutes. Then, they brought out the eggs correctly, with onions missing in the hash browns. Just couldn’t get it together. Finally, my mom spilled a drink at the table, and they didn’t clean it up. Came and looked, left us nothing to clean it up when we asked for napkins, picked up a few plates, and left us to finish our meal with drink spilled all over the table. We saw 2 other tables disputing an incorrect bill. Worried I will get sick. Stay away.

Horrible. Staff was only aware of what was GF based on the menu. My wife ordered a Cobb Salad, listed as GF. It came out with some sort of crouton substitute that was deep fried potato strips. Of course, we’re now skeptical of the frier and whether or not it’s dedicated - still don’t know. Sent salad back, waitress indicated she would get it remade - it wasn’t, they moved the fried potato and sent it back out. We were sitting by the kitchen.......it wasn’t remade. A verbal spat between the kitchen and waitress ensued; needless to say my wife didn’t feel comfortable eating and we cancelled our order. The Manager came by, gave a half efforted sorry.

They have items marked on the menu as gluten free, with an English muffin being a big breakfast draw. However, they do NOT / NOT use a separate toaster. I asked the server multiple times and even the manager and they said it is the same toaster and they just throw it in the slot where all the regular breads and English muffins go. Eggs, meats and hash browns are prepared on a separate grill from where pancakes are made.

I had scrambled eggs, a ham slice, and hash browns, all of which marked as GF and which the server said are prepared on a different grill from where the pancakes are made. The ham was a bit tough, the hash browns quite dry and tasteless until I added salt and pepper; nothing to make me want to go back.

Three (yes three) different cups of coffee came with 1-2 little gnats floating on top - the kind of gnats that often are found in houseplants, yet there were no live plants in the restaurant. They did comp the coffee, but it really made me wonder what might be running around in the kitchen.

We went to the hotel next door for vacation (comfort inn which btw is now celiac friendly at all) and ended up eating there several times in that week.. my wife who is celiac had no issues at all. They have english muffins that can use for buns for the burgers. The menu is marked what is GF too. If I have to be picky about it.. I can only regret they dont have more options..

The wait staff did seem knowledgeable and very helpful, however the kitchen staff forgot 2 of my grandkids meals. Those 2 finally received their meals an hour after the rest of us had ours. The kitchen staff did a horrible job, not only with our meal, but several others. There was no reason for anyone to have to wait 1-1/2 hrs for their food. They honestly were not that busy.

I will never go there again. Do not trust their gf menu. I spent the night puking. I got the burger with the wavy fries, both says GF. I looked up the burger before I got there and assumed the beef patty was safe because I couldn’t find any info on it

This location has a knowledgeable staff and I have eaten here over 15 times now with no issues. I’m allergic to diary and gluten and they’ve been really great about preparing my food safely. I have been exposed to gluten at other Denny’s locations so not all of them are safe.

DO NOT GO TO THIS DENNYS. I’ve been exposed to gluten here TWICE. The managers don’t seem to care about food safety and the kitchen doesn’t seem to understand how cross contamination works. Other Denny’s locations are okay, but steer clear of this place.

They have GF next to a lot of breakfast items (bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, etc) and was surprised to see GF English muffins. I was specific with waitress and let her know def. gluten allergy/celiac and if they can heat on grill instead of shared toaster. After 3 bites I was questioning how good it was and asked waitress/showed her. She said it was regular English muffin. 😭 now I’m waiting for bad effects.

I have been here several times without issue. However the last time that I was there, I made sure to be very clear about the seriousness of the need for the food to be gluten free and concerns of cross contamination. My server said they understood made it feel like this was an inconvenience for her. After all that I got sick from the food. Truly hoping it was just a bad server but makes me nervous to come back.

Friends,I was traveling with a Friend who is a diagnosed celiac. We purposely sought out a restaurant that had gluten-free options for us, and Denny's Milpitas was a good fit that was close to our hotel. Unfortunately, this chain is exploiting the "gluten-free" market by falsely advertising an item that clearly is not such and item. When we questioned the server if the French fries (which were marked a "gluten-free") were fried in a separate hot oil fryer as other breaded item on the menu, she reported back to us that all item are fried in the same oil!While I'm not a celiac myself, I've seen the effects that a simple mistake like this has on a true celiac. Please reach-out to this Nationwide chain and share the necessary steps needed to claim "gluten-free" on a menu. Best regards, Jerry LaBant

This was a nice surprise. My breakfast was great and I had no issues. The menu is marked with what is gluten free and the staff member we called to talk to ahead of time was confident in explaining how they protect against cross contamination. They even had tips under some entrees like “make this gluten free by substituting etc”. Who would’ve thought.

The first time we ate here, I ordered a gf English muffin before realizing it’s toasted in a common toaster & the butter tub is used for everything. I didn’t eat it, because I’m so sensitive. Making my own Grand Slam with naturally gf food the second time ended up being the best option.

In both cases, service was VERY slow, which isn’t a big deal if you’re not in a rush.
