Great Wolf lodge in the Poconos has one sit down restaurant and it’s buffet style. The server will have the chef come out and show you what you can and cannot eat. Because it’s a buffet and cross contamination is highly possible, the chef will offer to cook you separate food. Trust me when I say this, take them up on this offer. I did not and became violently sick. There is also a lunch/snack type restaurant in the water park and downstairs. They will cook fries, pizza and chicken fingers in a separate part in the kitchen. Overall, they try, but be VERY careful and bring your own snacks.
Lots of choices on the buffet for breakfast and dinner. Your server has a chef come out and point out safe items. I am thrilled with the food. The next day and I’m still ok. I highly recommend the food. It’s not only safe .... but, delicious too!!!
I was expecting the worst and received the best! The chef is more than happy to take you around the buffet to show what is GF or cook something specific for you. I did both while here and it was all great. I am very sensitive to even cross contamination and I didn't get sick even a little. They have carved meats, the best mashed potatoes ever, sautéed vegetables etc.
I would not know if it was gluten free friendly or not. Went there for lunch and the restaurant was closed. They sent us downstairs and that was not at all what I was looking for.
Safe food -- takes quite a while for the GF Pizza, but very good!
Michael Wedderburn the chef walked us around the Loose Moose and showed us all the GF food on the line. He showed me packaging and made us anything else we wanted. He made my kids GF pizza and chicken nuggets. There was also GF beer. The chef checked on us 4 times! He discussed how he is extremely careful about cross contamination. He said he cooks carefully and used wholesome ingredients as if he were cooking for his child! He has even cooked for a family here that had 28 food allergies. He bends over backwards to make sure you are pleased. We are extremely happy with the restaurant and our visit.
Dinner was tasty. Lots of options and well trained staff. Breakfast just skip. Just not worth it for the money given the options. They are very good about making stuff in the back but you just don't have a lot of choices. The pancakes were tasteless.
This place caters to those with allergies especially gluten and peanut. There were several things to pick from. Chefs came out at every meal to speak with me and see what I wanted to eat. Dinner we had the buffet and seemed like there were more gf choices than not. They had salads, soups, sides, entrees, dessert. Great choices! Chef came out and made me fresh gf pancakes but they offer tons of options. Definitely recommend!
Food was mostly over cooked and not so tasty. Some of the staff very helpful, some not so much. One of the chef's was great, he has many allergies so he got it. One chef was clueless. Service was not great, and we were there during a slow period, just after many kids went back to school. They did a decent job overall, but the food itself was typical fast food fare. I wish there were some healthier options.
Thank you Great Wolf Lodge for worry free dining experience! Lots of options and very knowledgeable staff !
A great experience and some of the best gluten free food I ever had. the chef came out asked me what I wanted, I had pancakes, home made chicken tenders, french fries, hamburger, monk fish and incredible fried shrimp. everything was made to order in a dedicated cooking space.
