National Pancake Day 2023
In the past, National Pancake Day was celebrated on Fat Tuesday / Mardi Gras, but this year the tasty event happens a week after Fat Tuesday. No matter when it falls on the calendar, it’s still the perfect time to enjoy a stack of fluffy pancakes!
What is National Pancake Day?
National Pancake Day at IHOP is an annual promotional event where IHOP guests get free pancakes, chances to win free prizes, and opportunities to raise money for children’s charities in their area.
Everyone is invited to dine in and receive one free short stack of buttermilk pancakes. Generally, this should be good from 7 – 7 at most IHOP locations, but you should call to verify that your local restaurant is participating, as the official National Pancake Day website discloses that this is “at participating locations” and that “hours may vary”.
Free Pancakes at IHOP
The main event on National Pancake Day is obviously the free pancakes. Everyone gets a Free Short Stack of Pancakes in-restaurant on National Pancake Day with no signup required! Simply show up during the promotional hours from 7a-7p to claim your free short stack of pancakes
An IHOP short stack of pancakes is 3 stacked buttermilk pancakes. The value of this offer is approximately $7 (regular menu price is $6.59). You are welcome to add to your order to round out your meal and enjoy your other IHOP favorites.
Please remember to tip your server on the value of your food (not the final discounted cost), including the $7 freebie.

Raise Money for Children’s Charities
IHOP uses this annual event to highlight and raise money for 3 children’s charities. Since 2006, IHOP has helped to raise over $30 million for these charities!
Annual goals often aim to raise over $4 million for Children’s Miracle Network and other local charities. Guests can donate on-check, with cash at donation boxes, or by purchasing a wall tag at the restaurant. All money raised during the IHOP National Pancake Day campaign stays local and supports the nearest children’s hospital associated with the charity partners.
If you are in a position to donate, consider making a contribution to one of the great causes and children’s charities that are featured during IHOP national free pancake day. Learn more below about these great organizations.
