Limited gluten free options, but the Tuscan scrambler with corn tortilla is pretty darn good

We ordered from the app to pick up at this location. My husband walked in to get our order and heard a waitress tell another waitress “we don’t have gluten free” what should I do? And the other waitress replied “give them regular” then the one waitress turned to my husband and asked how she could help him and he said he was there to pick up an order and she said oh this is your order and my husband asked if he just overheard the one waitress to just give us regular and the waitress replied yes...needless to say, not only does this location not have gluten free, they have total disregard for people’s food allergies. The whole thing was a fiasco. We ended up getting a refund and will not be going to ihop again. Oh, and we went over to Waffle House to see if they had gluten free items like the app implies and they do not have gluten free items either.

I have Celiac and am VERY sensitive to gluten. I had the Belgian Waffle Combo with scrambled eggs and sausage links. I had NO reaction. We did call prior to going there. We were informed they have gluten free pancake and waffle batter. As well as, they will whip up seperate egg solutions for omelets. We also asked if they clean griddles and other areas they cook the gluten friendly items, the hostess asked kitchen staff and was ensured they do!

I am not sure I would say it's Celiac friendly. Preparation area is not separate and fryers are NOT dedicated.

I have avoided IHOP for 7 years...my breakfast game just blew wide open!

They offer "gluten-friendly" branded food. Our waitress made it clear that this doesn't necessarily mean gluten-free.

I risked it on the pancake combo with gluten-friendly pancakes and didn't have a reaction (I have celiac).

They clearly don't have a dedicated gf space, but it seems like they may be willing to accommodate those with allergies if it is made clear to them. That said, my waitresses' verbiage suggested a lack of confidence that they can properly provide gf food on a consistent basis.

My daughter is allergic to wheat and the few times she has had their gluten free pancakes she has had no reaction. Staff was helpful, made sure everything was clean with no cross contamination. One IHOP's manager even went back and cooked it himself.

Pancakes, eggs, bacon. I am unsure of the sausage.

Please avoid for celiac. They were out of the batter for gf breakfast and had to look for gf buns....after a lengthy look they “found some”. Waitress and manager weren’t knowledgeable or considerate of my daughters allergy. Better safe than sorry-avoid.

If you want gf pancakes or waffles don’t go to this location. They said they couldn’t make waffles because it was too much of a hassel to clean the waffle iron, the gluten free pancakes were not cooked all the way through.

I’m not celiac but highly intolerant. The burger had the best bun I’ve ever had. It tasted good and was very light and squishy. It reminded me of regular hamburger buns. We went back for waffles and got the pancakes to try. They were inedible. Both were heavy and thick. The waffle was soft. No crispness at all. The pancakes were about 1/2” thick. They both just crumbled apart. I will go back for the burger. I can make way better waffles and pancakes at home.

Everything gluten free is marked on the regular menu, and so are any changes that might need to be made. The pancakes are soooo good! I’ve missed IHOP so much and now I get to have it again.

Went 7 miles out of our way to eat here, only to be told, “We don’t have any gluten free batter right now” even though it was proudly advertised on the menu’s cover. Guess I should’ve called before I went.

IHOP has very good GF pancakes and waffles. They claim to be "gluten friendly" but a friend w celiac eats here all the time and has never been sick. This location is not the nicest - wait staff isn't very good and it's often crowded. But it's another GF option downtown.

Staff were friendly and aware of gluten allergy’s. They had a separate menu with gluten free food. I ordered the pancake breakfast and it was pretty good. They let me know that they are not a gluten free facility so there is a chance for gluten cross contamination but they would do their best to clean up and wear gloves.

The hostess said emphatically, "Yes! We can serve you safely!" But when it was time to order we learned that the "gluten friendly" pancakes are made in the same griddle as regular pancakes and grilled breads. Likewise the "gluten friendly" waffles are made in the same waffle maker as the regular waffles. The staff were kind and gracious, and re-opened a closed grill for our food. But we were there at a lull time so this was possible. Celiac's beware: this place is merely gluten aware and they have no mechanisms in place to prevent cross-contamination. Perhaps this is OK for some GF folks, but not safe enough for me.

My husband is coeliac not me. We went to IHOP on this apps 1 recommendation. They are gluten friendly not free as they can’t meet the required recommendations due to possible cross contamination in kitchen and they state this clearly on menu. However definitely fully versed and understand the issues and possible outcomes. My husband Successfully( meaning no ill health effects post ingestion occurred) had and enjoyed a GF hamburger and GF fries. We will go back to try the GF waffles/ pancakes. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

IHOP has recently added gluten aware items to the menu including gluten free buns, pancakes and waffles, however they are prepared on the same surfaces as gluten bearing products, and as such are only really suitable for those willing to take a risk.Further, there is an inconsistent upcharge for each refill in regards to AYCE products, for example,cmy 4.99 ayce eggs, bacon and pancakes cost 4.99 plus 1.29+1.29 forva total of 7.57. I can see an upcharge but 65c per pancake is excessive.
