    Great food great portions. Celiac friendly food comes out on a red plate. Great system of seperating it from gluten food. Small wait but worth it.

    BEST GLUTEN FREE BREAKFAST! My daughter and I both have celiac, and we had yet to find a restaurant to serve her gf French toast. This place knocked it out of the park. I had the strawberry crepes and was also in heaven! They prepared our meals on dedicated gf equipment, too. The service was fast and friendly. We'll be back for sure!

    Great GF pancakes! They roll their sausages in wheat flour, though, and those are cooked right next to the bacon, so make sure to ask for a clean grill if you order bacon and are celiac. They seemed happy to accommodate me. I did not have a reaction the one time I ate there.

    I had to go through several different staff before the manager came out to help. They eventually gave us a server who had a better idea of how they cooked the food and certain ingredients. The majority of the GF menu is made with Pamela's products so they all have dairy in them. I was able to have the French toast (GF, DF) because they use GF bread dipped in an egg batter. If you only have to avoid gluten then this is a great option.

    im extremely sensitive to gluten. It causes migraines and vomiting for hours. When I ordered the gluten free pancakes from The Original Pancake House, I told the waiter I not only wanted the gluten but I needed gluten free. He said "I understand" It took a long time for my pancakes to be cooked but it was worth it. I didnt get sick at all.

    Update: I had to take 2 stars off went for breakfast got the gluten free pancakes and found plastic cooked into mine, grossed me out I can't go back now! The pancakes are so good, and the bacon is thick sliced and wonderful. I eat here often. The sausage patties and links are rolled in flour, but ask your waitress to have them not roll them in flour it takes a couple extra minutes

    I ate here the day before Christmas Eve. I have celiac and have eaten here several times and the gluten free pancakes were very good. But this time I had a terrible reaction. I told the waitress I needed gluten free when she first came to the table, told her again when I ordered and she repeated it, but there was a mix up somewhere because I am certain that I was given regular pancakes. I have not been that sick since I went on a gluten free diet 8 years ago. Almost had to stay home and miss Christmas Eve dinner the next day. So be very careful and double check that you have gluten free food.

    When asking the wait staff about GF procedures to avoid x-contamination, they were not knowledgable. Considering the promotion of GF without preparation knowledge with regular food, I asked for the manager to explain the need for a knowledgeable wait and cook staff. I actually spoke to the owner who replied that I should leave.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed dining here this morning. It's always a challenge to find a restaurant that truly makes me feel safe about eating out. As soon as I mentioned Celiac Disease to our server, Molly, she explained that they have a separate grill, pointed out all the selections on the menu that are marked as gluten free options, and assured me that they understand how to control cross-contamination in the kitchen. Aaron, the manager, came out to our table three times to make sure I felt good about my meal and to let me know that they welcome questions. It felt wonderful to be able to relax and enjoy a meal out knowing the staff was well-trained and were taking care of me. In addition, the food was great, the service was exceptional, and the ambiance classy. Love this place!

    Post script, I mentioned CC concerns on reviews to the manager. Regarding CC, manager said they have a catering grill they can use for the GF pancake, upon request. --- Trying for first time, asked about GF pancake. Waiter had ingredient list in his pocket, and offered us a sample. Very tasty, and along with tons of other menu options (eggs, meats, salads, etc...), plenty of choices for GF. Good quality is excellent and service great too. As others have noted, they don't have a dedicated grill. A small amount of cross contamination is tolerable for us. We will be back.

    Maybe the best experience we've ever had dining out with celiac. Not only was the waiter aware of celiac disease, he even caught something that we didn't realize wasn't GF and suggested an alternative (turkey sausage for regular sausage). Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free, though. Pancakes, waffles, French toast, crepes... We'd be there every day until we tried everything, if we could only afford it.
