    Great service and great experience. She told me they *do* have a dedicated area for cooking gluten free *and* they have waffles which were delicious! No gluten free syrup. Agave nectar instead so maybe consider adding a sweet topping to your pancakes or waffle and either whipped cream or ice cream. Beats syrup anyways ;)

    They were very knowledgeable about cross contamination and the gluten free items are cooked on a separate dedicated grill. My daughter loved the gluten free pancakes!

    We figured out I had Celiac only a year ago, so I was super excited when I found out I could eat pancakes here. It's a long wait, but you have a lot of options for pancakes and waffles. The only downside is you can't eat the regular syrup. They give you something called Blue Agave Nectar that tastes like honey, and I think it's a bit too sweet for pancakes. It made me a little sick. All and all, definitely worth a try!

    I told them I have a food allergy (gluten), of course I actually have celiac, but I've found that saying "food allergy" gets the appropriate response. They're gluten free pancake and waffle menu is extensive and very yummy. Their service is excellent and they take special care to make sure my food is prepare properly.

    The first plus was they answer the phone when you call. my 10 y.o. son loved being able to get a gf Belgian waffle. The food was good and averaged 9.00 per person. they upcharged .99 for adding gf as well .99 for each additional request. ie pecans. they dont have dedicated equipment for gf but they wipe down the grill. service was pleasant. the food came out quick. we ate here twice as laytons on 92 nd was closed all week.

    Nice size gluten free breakfast menu. Waffle wasn't very tasty and breakfast was overpriced.

    They have a great selection of gluten free pancakes and waffles. The wait is a bit long but still worth it!

    Gf pancakes were very good and a great selection. Server was accommodating. They r clear that they just wipe down the grill and use clean utensils b4 cooking gf. Would prefer to see a dedicated surface but our celiacs son showed no ill side affects but it was a little risky.

    Happy Jacks...not so happy. Had their gluten free chocolate chip pancakes and have been sick for the last 3 hours. Not sure they do much, if anything, to prevent cross contamination.

    Asked about their procedures to prevent cross contamination. They said they wipe down the waffle maker before they use it, which I knew would make me sick, but that the gf pancakes had their own spot on the grill. I decided to take the risk because I was hungry, but I regretted it about 20 minutes later when I realized my pancake had been cced. I don't recommend this place for celiacs.

    Awesome gluten free pancakes! I had the blueberry and a side of turkey sausage. Really fresh, great tasting pancakes. Ocean city is limited on gluten free-I have found my new breakfast spot.

    excellent gluten free options. gf menu is offered right on the back of the reg menu and staff seems knowledgeable about cross contamination!
