The Keys menu does offer some options for their meals to be gluten free accommodating. I had their GF Apple & walnut pancake and you would never know it was GF!

I wanted a specific omelet with wild rice in it and asked if it was gluten free but my server had no idea. They were busy so I didn’t want to be an additional stressor by asking her to go ask the kitchen. The server said they had gluten free bread and pancakes, and also went to mention the pancakes were very good. I took her word for it and got an omelette with a side of one pancake. I’m only gluten intolerant and so I can handle the shared kitchen utensils. I was quite disappointed in the pancake though. It was served 5 minutes before my omelet and the rest of my party’s food so was cold and dry by the time I ate it. The pancake was bland and crumbly. The omelette was good but over priced.

Server was very knowledgeable of Celiac. Had gluten free bread for my sandwich. Brought bagged chips. They even had GF rice crispy bar and a GF monster cookie. No GF menu, but the server I had was great.

I used to eat there a lot. Then I got Dx with Celiac. Went for pancake & I thought it was exactly like a regular pancake. Next time the pancake was obviously GF. My guess, the wait person didn't put in correct order or cook screwed up. Luckily I was still going through Gluten withdrawls & blamed everything on that back then 🙄

I choose to be gluten free, but I think key's tries hard for those who do not do it by choice. They asked me if they could put my sandwich on the grill to be sure they did not cross contaminate.

Very accommodating and certainly knew GF options and constraints (server even came to tell us the GF toast would be an extra minute because they use a separate grill).

My go-to brunch spot! The GF pancakes are amazing, and options are clearly marked on the main menu! I go all the time and have never been glutened - would definitely recommend!

The waitress did not know what Celiac was and was not sure how some things were cooked. In order to get something I could eat they charged me extra for a salad with my bun less burger. I will not be going there again.

I've eaten at Keys for years, once I found out they had a lot of gf options for breakfast. The pancakes are equally as generously enormous as the wheat kind and fill or overhang the plates, fluffy and great tasting. GF bread is available for sandwiches and toast HOWEVER, it is more than disappointing that they use a SHARED TOASTER (the rotating wire coveyor kind) which for very sensitive people is quite risky. Over the years my sensitivity has declined with strict adherence, so a very minor glutening isnt near what it used to be, so I have had their toast on and off and have been lucky so far to have had no issues. But consumer beware!! ALSO, this Keys location clearly has not trained their kitchen staff on the gfree toast because unless I specifically ask for it to come out "dry" half the time it comes out with butter already on it, which is done by a common use melted butter container and a brush!!! So I say, the heck with toast, go for the pancakes with strawberries and whipped cream, or blueberries mixed in... they're to die for! Omlets are consistently good too!

Love this place! The GF pancakes are amazing, I've never gotten sick eating them, add blueberries to make them even better. The atmosphere is one of the loveliest in the area, cozy and friendly and fun (watched the cooks dance as the made food!). The GF toast is no so great, it's thin and grainy (it's Udi's, so meh) and also doesn't have a dedicated toaster. I've gotten contaminated from it. Never had an issue with the pancakes, I just wish they had GF Buckwheat pancakes. Their buckwheat were the best.
