Good attentive service and food PLUS I accidentally dropped my passport in the booth when I got my phone from my pocket. I didn’t realise it was missing until an hour after I left. I phoned and they found it and put it aside for me to pick up. Great relief... and beyond the usual service! (I forget the name of the server who helped but I overheard that she was going to work at a Denny’s in Seattle. So if her colleagues read this, thanks so much!)

Big menu, I'm new to Celiac disease, and just starting a gluten free diet, so I'm not sure what a gluten attack is like. either way this was my only option at 9:30pm.

Although the waitress tried to be helpful I never helped her understand just a little is too much. Then the offer of dry gf muffins, hashbrowns and egg white (from container) ham and cheese on the same griddle made me realize it wa as too big of risk! My family enjoyed their food very much. I recommend if you are not gluten allergic or celiac.

On the road... I don't expect everyone to be familiar with celiac but I've encountered many servers at Denny's who are. They have helped me to order & oversaw my requests to the kitchen. I have never gotten sick eating at Denny's. The menú helps to ID GF items. Build your own meals are a good choice. I recommend their excellent GF English muffin.

Very pleasantly surprised. Stopped here on the way home from pacific city because I was really hungry and craving eggs and it was the only place open that had a hint of gf food. I usually avoid diner style restaurants bc I worry about cross contamination, but they answered my questions knowledgeably and it seemed really safe. They cook the eggs and sausage in fresh pans and the gf muffins come separately packaged. I tried the grand slam with eggs, sausage, fruit and their gf muffin and it was great! Didn’t get sick. It’s diner food still, so don’t expect a gourmet meal, but it was exactly what I was craving.

Gluten free options are clearly marked on the menu. Staff seemed very knowledgeable of GF food and Celiac disease. I’ve eaten here many times for several years and have never gotten sick. The gluten free biscuits are delish!

Good food. Fantastic service. Beware, the fryer isn’t dedicated so fries and tortilla chips aren’t really gf although marked as such. BUT after talking, the server said she was going to insist that an unused fryer become a dedicated gf fryer and went back and talked to the kitchen manager immediately. We’ll see the next time I eat there.

The Mediterranean chicken and the little crunchy shoestring potatoes on the salad both tested GF on the Nima sensor. The GF designations are right on the menu, but you should still specify to the waitstaff because they always seem moderately confused.

The staff was very friendly. Many items on the menu are marked GF. However, BEWARE they DO NOT have a dedicated fryer yet mark fried items such as french fries as GF.

Not gluten free. The manager didnt even know about prep conditions. I didnt risk getting sick. Do not go if you are celiac.

I ordered an omelette and hash browns hoping maybe those would be gluten free but there has to be major cross-contamination going on here because I had a reaction to gluten. It could’ve just been an unfortunate mistake but I wouldn’t go back.

Independently owned/operated franchise with MANY *GF* options very clearly identified on the menu. Three separate flattop grills; will do "allergy prep" if requested. Sadly, the butter spread is served in condiment cups, not individual packets, so it's not guaranteed GF.

I haven’t been to Denny’s since before I was gluten free and I was pleasantly surprised. The breakfast menu has a large selection of gluten free options including hash browns and English muffin. Our waitress communicated my needs to the kitchen. My English muffin came grilled with butter on the side. I’m only giving 4 stars because the lunch/dinner menu looks much more limited, but this is a good choice for breakfast.

Be careful eating at Denny’s. I ate successfully there on 3 occasions. However, today was not a good experience. I always state to waitress the necessity of eating GF and to please inform the kitchen staff. Halfway through my hash browns there was a quarter size pancake fried within. I talked to Manager and she said they try to be careful and brush down the grill between orders. Denny’s will no longer be an option for me. I’m reviewing the chain, not this specific location.

English muffin, eggs, sausage, bacon, hashbrowns. Great breakfast and great service. We went the morning of a rocket launch and even with a very short staff, they did the best anyone could possibly do.

Denny’s has many foods labeled as gluten free in their menu, such as the nachos and fries, but they are prepared in a way that makes them absolutely volatile for anyone with celiac, and I have become extremely ill many times after eating there. I in no way recommend Denny’s as I have been lied to on multiple occasion about prep, in addition we have been served food that is definitely not gluten free (an English muffin) instead or the gluten free alternative.

Denny’s is our go-to place for gf while traveling. It is not a gf facility so if you are really sensitive to contamination it might not work for you. Gf options are clearly marked on the menu, and the food is simply good.

The staff wasn’t knowledgeable about gluten free and I would not recommend any Denny’s if one has Celiac disease My salad was ordered gf but came w croutons on it. In addition our grandson ordered the Italian Sampler & the meatball he tried to eat tasted weird which ruined the rest of his meal. I tried their nachos and they did not sit well

Yay for Denny’s ~ They offer a gluten free English muffin! I always get the ultimate omelet or Philly cheesesteak omelet and a fruit bowl with the English muffin! A great late night or anytime meal option!

Ordered a skillet meal that was labeled GF. I asked the waitress if it was indeed GF and she said yes. Immediately after eating I knew it either wasn’t or there was cross contamination because my celiacs started to act up.

Enough gf options and pleasantly surprised by the english muffin (which is actually a sort of burger bun made of brioche-like dough). The muffin is grilled, not sure what precausions the take to avoid cc). Good lunch, no reactions.

Menu clearly marked. Prices reasonable. Servings generous. Senior menu with GF selections. Friendly staff. GF deserts. Long hours. Any meal any time of day you want it. What more could you want?

Food was mediocre at best and they did not carry the usual Denny’s muffins. Cleanliness of restaurant needed improvement but only 1 server for the location made it difficult to keep up with so it’s understandable. Based on intuition and past experiences with good Denny’s, I would not recommend for celiacs.

Tested the grilled chicken with my Nima Sensor on 2 different dates and it found gluten both times, even after politely but clearly explaining celiac and suggesting no seasoning and using aluminum foil on grill.
