This used to be an incredibly allergy friendly establishment. We recently stayed here and it is not longer the case. Buffet only. Chef couldn’t not tell us what was in the sauces for the meats. The burger shop in the pool area does not have gluten free buns nor did the people working even know what gluten was. Very disappointing. Plan to eat elsewhere if you go to Great Wolf and have any kind of allergy.

We went last February 2022 and the breakfast was buffet style and dinners were like a regular restaurant. They had excellent gluten free buns and a dedicated fryer. We went again December 2022 and breakfast was the same but dinner was also buffet style. It was horrible. No one knew what was gluten free except for the obvious things (not the pasta or fried chicken). One person would tell us something was gluten free and the next person would say it wasn't and vice versa. At least for breakfast you can order gluten free pancakes as well. For dinner it's basically a shot in the dark if it's safe or not. They do still have the gluten free pizza which is fine, but unless all you want to eat pizza for every meal other than breakfast, the food situation is not great. Major downgrade from when we went last time which is pretty disappointing.

We had pizza from Hungry as a Wolf. My 9 year old celiac gave it two thumbs up. I also had it and concur.

We also spoke with the chef and they have great protocol.

To get the gluten free food, you have to go to the restaurant, not Buckets Incredible Craveables. The restaurant only serves pizza during lunch, but they have a gluten free crust. They don’t serve dinner until 5pm and that’s when you can get the gluten free buns and fries, just so you’re all aware!

The head chef will come out and talk to you about all risks. The staff was super knowledgeable about what we could eat and wasn’t sure about 1 item and went back and asked the kitchen before putting in the order. Great service!

I ordered a GF cheeseburger with caramelized onions, salad and fries. They have a separate fryer and cooking spot for all GF meals. The bun did have poppy seeds and sesame seeds on it, just FYI.

The staff is very well trained about food allergies. I had a fried chicken sandwich and French fries. My meal was prepared in a dedicated space and a dedicated fryer. My meal was delivered to me by the manager, not our waiter. The manager checked with me half way through the meal to make sure everything was ok. This place was top notch. Worry free dining! No side effects! I’ll be back!

They were great with our 7yo celiac. Pizza, fries (separate fryer), buns, pancakes, and more! The sit down restaurants send the chef out to the table and talk about the gf food.

Based on other reviews, I asked the staff if I could bring my own food in so I could eat with my family because they wanted to eat at the hotel. They got the manager, and she told me they take allergies very seriously and have a seperate kitchen. I told her about the bad reviews I saw on this site and she said to always ask for and order with a manager. I ate both dinner and breakfast (they will make you seperate food if you ask. I wouldn't trust the buffet) here and didn't get sick.

That being said, I had ordered a roasted chicken breast with au jus, with mashed potatoes, and a vegtable (what was listed GF on the menu) and instead got a deep friend chicken breast/thigh chunk and French fries. The manager was so nice and said she was watching them make it so I didn't get sick, and that they fried the chicken and fries in a seperate pot of oil to be safe. But, also I didn't order fried chicken and fries and wish I would have known about the substitutiins ahead of time.

There are multiple restaurants at the great wolf lodge. We went to the hungry like a wolf that’s on the second floor. They have a gluten free pizza. We asked about cross contamination and how careful they are with it. They said it was a separate area with fresh utensils that the are not used with the other pizza dough. We had a positive experience. No sickness so far. We took a gluten assistance pill after reading the other reviews. But we ate 15 minutes before we took that and didn’t have a reaction before taking it. We just got nervous that it may happen after reading others experiences. But we had a good experience. The pizza was small for the price but it’s a different crust type than we normally see with gluten free. It’s a Brooklyn style crust and it was tasty.

They say they have a separate cooking area but show no evidence of celiac safe practices. Very limited menu and over priced.

Chef walked us through the buffet highlighting which options are safe for our gluten and egg allergy, and which to avoid. They also made pasta and fries in a separate dedicated gluten free fryer for us.

Had a vegan gluten free cupcake which was good too.

The only thing is cross contamination risk from other guests not being careful with getting food. Recommend going early in the meal to reduce this risk. We were fine though and no issues.
