CELIACS BEWARE!!!! GLUTEN FRIENDLY NOT GLUTEN FREE!!!! I read the reviews before I went and assumed I would be fine if I communicated my dietary restrictions thoroughly. The waitress said they would make my gluten free pancakes and eggs in a separate pan and I felt safe. I am currently sick in bed with one of the worst reactions I've ever had. I communicated my needs 100% and they didn't have the ability to follow through or someone slipped up. Don't trust it. Don't trust it. Don't trust it. I have now canceled my flight home tomorrow morning due to the severity of my reaction. Trust me on this.

It’s my celiac daughter’s favorite breakfast restaurant in Charleston. She has ordered the pancake breakfast 5-6 times in a span of 18 months and always done well.

The waitress was very sweet but not knowledgeable about dietary restrictions. She was very kind to relay our questions to the kitchen, but we shared that we had celiac and opted for a side of fruit (because we could not have bread), and the meal still came topped with an English muffin.

The space was fun but the food was not out of this world. We won’t be visiting again.

I ate at this restaurant 2 to 3 times while staying in Charleston. I never had any problems with the food which was good quality. Based on the feedback I got from servers I believe they take reasonable precautions to serve gluten-free meals, however, I would probably avoid menu items which may run a slightly higher risk of cross-contamination.

Our waitress gave me a “gluten-friendly” menu that had tons of options. They have a disclaimer stating they can’t guarantee cross-contamination, but they’re able to prepare GF items separately. I had bourbon street pancakes, grits and bacon that were delicious and I felt completely fine afterwards.

The server wasn’t very knowledgeable and didn’t know what celiac was and didn’t understand cross contamination when I asked about it. After further communication they do use different utensils for gf menu items and clean the grill between. I had gf pancakes and wasn’t very exciting. Just ok. I wouldn’t return again. Felt a little funky afterward in the stomach.

Wow so good!! I got the pancake flight, eggs and ham. The portions are huge, the food was amazing. I asked them to cook my meal in a separate pan to avoid cross contamination and they were very happy to do that. The head cook also prepared my meal since i had celiacs. Amazing!

A local friend brought me here for breakfast. I was so surprised when I asked about a GF menu and they handed me a pretty extensive menu which included GF pancakes.

I had bananas foster pancakes that were amazing! The bacon is baked and wonderful.

We had no complaints about the service. The hosts were very friendly and our waitress was wonderful.

Food was good, love that there are a lot of options for GF. The pancakes were good, house made sausage was just ok. The server had very little personality and didn’t smile once. All other servers were very personable, I even asked another one a question and she was super helpful. Food took 30 minutes to come out, seemed like a long time. The manager was also very nice. Even chatting with us after our meal. We’d definitely go back.

They do have a separate GF menu. Food was ok... Not horrible, but nothing to write home about. Service was awful. The first time they brought my plate out it had regular English muffins on it... Had to ask for them to remake my omelet. The steel cut oats we're good, but also brought out incorrectly. By the time my meal arrived my fiance was nearly finished with his. Didn't get sick... So I guess it's safe in the gluten free department... But was painful getting the food to the table.

Gf pancakes are delicious! Not sure they are made on a dedicated area in kitchen and server gave me English muffin along with my meal even though I ordered a side of GF pancake so...not sure he knew what he was doing. My omelette was good but definitely had dairy in it based on how I felt afterwards. But I didn't ask about it so not faulting them.

Terrible on many accounts. They still offer gf pancakes, but cooked on their regular griddle. Two of our dishes had to be sent back because they brought toast and potatoes on the plate. The waitress tried to take the toast off the plate in front of us. Very long wait for the food.

Potatoes are fried In shared fryer- NOT GF. Even tho our waiter tried to argue with me on it- glad I saw this and questioned him. Disappointed in wait staff. Gf bread but No more gluten free pancakes because they didn't sell enough. Omelets are the safest he says because they're in the omelet pan and that's it.

The GF pancake and bacon were delicious. The servers were friendly, well informed about celiac, and careful to avoid cross contamination. My fellow (non-GF) diners were all pleased, too. This location is relatively new (opened in Sept. 2013), and business is really starting to pick up. If you have to wait, it'll be worth it!

Food was good, but slightly overpriced IMO. A small glass of OJ cost more than the bacon.. And the GF options were few. However, the pancake that is GF is good; not grainy like some gf flour blends produce.
