great place. we went two days in a row. gf isn't on menu but they have both pancakes and waffles. very happy with both my meals. will come back on next vacation.
My husband and I had breakfast this morning at Plantation and we're not at all impressed. We were welcomed warmly by the hostess but after that the experience was bland at most. I had noticed a few reviews that were not good but I try to use judgment in reading all of them. Gluten free pancakes were not on the menu but I ordered them after I confirmed that they had GF. Our observations: no mention that 3 GF pancakes were $3:00 more, pancakes were not warm (one pat of butter flavored spread brought with meal did not melt at all), had to ask for syrup which the server got from another table. ( The container was sitting in a bowl that had so much syrup in the bottom I thought the bowl was attached), pancakes were average. In addition, my husband had regular blueberry pancakes which were grainy and the blueberries in the pancakes were hard. Since the restaurant has "pancake" in its name it would have been nice to perhaps have been offered a couple of flavored syrups and some melted butter. Service was not poor but robotic. Coffee WAS hot and we were given a pot for the table. That and the greeting were the positives. We expected more. We will not go back.
staff was friendly and knowledgeable but 2.5hours after leaving the restaurant, my son was throwing up. that means that he was exposed to gluten when he ate their pancakes. Stay away if you are very sensitive!
My sister and I are celiacs. We went to this pancake house because they offer gf options. We ordered combo plates with gf waffles instead of the regular. As all gf eaters know, we expect a slight price increase for gf substitutions however the original platter price was 7.95 we ended up paying 16 because "eating gluten free is expensive" as told to us by the owner. She said she has to serve is that price because she only buys "the good stuff." We were never told of the price difference until our check came, where instead of being charged for a platter we were charged individually for all items. We addressed the issue to the owner who claims to have ran into this problem frequently with all gf patrons. She refused to see that the problem was the fact we were never told of the price difference. She was very rude and thought she had "blessed" us by giving a 2 dollar discount. When we were leaving she kept explaining that she understand us being angry and if we can come back again she would "bless" us again. Never ever ever go there. Rude hateful woman who owns the place. Thanks but no thanks.
Absolutely Outstanding!!!! I had the GF Waffles with bananas and whipped cream. It was Amazing!!!! The restaurant was clean and the sea salt hand scrub in the bathroom was an added bonus!!!! Love, Love, loved it!!!
The Gf pancakes and waffles were amazing and such a treat to have out at a restaurant!! The strawberry sauce on top was a bit too much for us so we would suggest asking for it on the side. It was excellent and very fast service!!! We recommend it!
I got the gf waffle with strawberries and it was very good! Very moist and full of flavor. Like previous people have said it is not listed on menu to have gluten free but they do if you just tell them. We will definitely come back!
It was wonderful to be able to eat pancakes that I didn't cook myself. I had the pecan pancakes, they were great! My pancakes came out on a distinctively different plate than the rest of our party. They didn't charge me extra, but that may have been an oversight. Overall, a very positive experience.
Justin was our server and we had excellent service. He kept me safe-pan fried eggs, Canadian Bacon and grits. The kitchen ended up doing my order twice because someone put toast on my plate, and it was quickly corrected. I walked out of there knowing I had not been 'glutenated'!! Thank you justin!!
Wonderful gluten free waffles and pancakes. Friendly helpful staff. Highly recommend!
I disagree with any positive comments. I went here because of all the good reviews. First of all their sign says "discount for locals". That's great and all, but I think if you're not a local, they don't care about keeping you happy. They told me when I went to order 3 gluten free pancakes it would be an extra charge of $3. So instead I got 2 gluten free pancakes. They charged an additional $5.25. That's on top of the regular charge. When I asked the cashier if that was correct she said yes and would not change the price. Not to mention the pancakes were not that great. For anyone with celiacs. They never asked me if it was an allergy. It was served on normal plate with normal silverware. They didn't seam concerned. I will never go back.
As others have noted, there is no gf menu but staff was very accomodating and double-checked when not sure about something. I had the gf waffles with strawberries and whipped cream and they were delicious! I was worried about cross contamination in preparation, but did not have any reaction.
My first couple of visits to Plantation Pancake House were great! My last few were not. The GF pancakes were done on the outside, but doughy on the inside. The waitress re-ordered them and the the 2nd order was the same. Griddle or Cook? The waitress talked to the owner, overheard owner state how expensive GF pancakes are. No discount, no GF pancakes eaten. Bacon & eggs were good.
Great gluten-free pancakes! Not listed on menu (not sure why...); found out about them via this app. In addition, service is always excellent and staff is friendly and welcoming. We drive about 15 miles to get to Plantation and make it a "must visit" every time we are in the Myrtle Beach area.
I had a gluten free waffle with strawberries for the first time in almost 3 years! Delicious breakfast.
Wrong! Pancakes undercooked and peaches for pancakes were straight out of a can. Don't waste your time.
I hadn't eaten pancakes in 4 years due to celiac disease. I ordered one regular and two chocolate chip with whipped cream. They were excellent and our waitress was awesome! Worth every single calorie!!!!
Was very happy to be able to get blueberry pancakes.
Waitress was awesome! Pancakes delish - had the buttermilk pancakes with bacon. definitely fluffy and tasty!
The pancakes are really good and fluffy. The staff is well trained and there is no need to explain what gluten is. Highly recommended.
I was so excited to find a place that has gf pancakes. The waitress said I could order any of thei variety of pancakes gf.I chose the buttermilk since I have never had that option before. They were very good --light and fluffy and you could barely tell they were gf.I have made my own from scartch so I know hiw hard it is to make them like that. Thumbs up to this restaurant for even trying!
We ate here specifically so my daughter could have gf pancakes. Note they are not listed on the menu but they do have them if you ask. She said they were very good. Our regular pancakes and french toast was good as well. They were very busy on this Saturday morning but we were seated and served quickly. 4 stars only because they had no fresh strawberries or blueberries. Really...out of the fresh fruit at 930 am on a Sat morning in early June?? The "fresh frozen" blueberries were a poor substitution... even sweetened with splenda we could not eat them.
Staff knew all about gfree. I got the pancakes plain. It's .50 cent extra per pancake, though my waitress gave me a deal since I got the 8 dollar pancakes (1.50 extra for all). Said they are constantly working to improve it. My relatives tasted very little difference. Perfect texture, just a tad difference taste. I just wish it tasted a little less... Gfree! (:
GF pancakes cooked on separate griddle Very tasty. Do not have maple syrup, but have toppings to add if desired.
Incredibly friendly! When we got there they were all out of pancake mix and they made a trip to the store right down the street just for us with out hesitation! I got banana nut pancakes and they tastes great!
Great GF pancakes! Needless to say, my eyes were bigger than my stomach because I couldn't eat it all! Great southern atmosphere & old fashioned diner.
GF pancakes . . . with toppings and mix-ins! 'Nuff said!
So nice to happen upon a gluten free pancake house! The omelets are yummy too!
