Event Date(s) March 8, 2016 7:00 am - 10:00 pm Event Details It's official! The date for IHOP's next National Pancake Day is Tuesday, March 8, 2016! During National Pancake Day, the company's largest philanthropic event of the year, more than 1,500 IHOP restaurants across the country will invite guests to enjoy a complimentary stack of IHOP's signature delicious buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Guests will be encouraged to make a voluntary contribution to their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital (we encourage guests to contribute at least what they would have paid for the pancakes - or $5). And even better - guests who make a $5 donation will receive a coupon good for $5 off their next visit!
