I’ve never had gluten free pancakes so fluffy! These may have been the best pancakes I’ve ever had.

BEWARE!! Waitress promised my pancakes were gluten free. I asked several times as they seemed too fluffy. She said they were made in a different part of the kitchen and came out of a different window. However, two hours after eating, I was severely ill. The pancakes were definitely not gluten-free.

My GF pancakes were good but nothing special. I wanted eggs but the server explained that only the pancakes, waffles, and crepes could be made gf. The server asked honest questions about what celiac is, which I appreciate more than someone pretending to know! The shared nature of the restaurant makes me worried about cc.

The menu has a lot of gf options but make sure to explain to your server what you need. The first time we came was a good experience. The second time, our waitress didn’t know what gluten free means. This place is always busy and the service is slow. The gf waffles and pancakes were great

I had the GF pigs in a blanket and they were very tasty. It was three FULL sized pancakes wrapped around three sausages. I would eat here again. They also had GF waffle and pancake options.

Delicious!!! I got the gluten free waffle while my sister got the pancakes (both of us are intolerant, not celiac) and the waffle was not as dry and much fluffier! Definitely recommend :)

Don’t order the waffle. When I asked if the waffle maker was clean they said they use the same one for all their waffles. I got the gf pigs in a blanket—they were a bit dry but I didn’t get sick. Orange juice is awesome

Definitely the best Belgium GF waffle I have ever had!! We went twice 2 days in a row. First day I needed a waffle... and they have a separate waffle maker for the GF. The next day I asked about their pancakes and they said they don’t have a separate cooktop but they could “wash” it off. I didn’t trust it enough for pancakes and eggs so I had another Belgium waffle which was fine by me! Yummy!!!

Thank you to the manager who made a batch of love filled gluten free pancakes. My daughter has celiac and we've been on the hunt for pancakes that actually taste like pancakes... And boy we found them!!! Loved to see the look of satisfaction on her face after a year of crumbling pancakes. Thank you Pancake House

There is a reason the parking lot is empty. Very old, dirty, had a ripped menu and a cracked glass for OJ. Servers were nice but... Glad they had GF waffle, but we won’t be back.

I was a nice place with great customer service and had a nice spread of gluten free options. I had the chocolate chip gf pancakes and it was a lot to food (6 pancakes). The pricing was extra (1.50) but worth it

I ordered the gluten free pancakes. When they were bringing my food they told me they didn’t have the gluten free mix and offered me to substitute for a bread item which wasn’t gluten free. I specifically went to this restaurant for the gluten free pancakes. They should have told me upon ordering they didn’t have the mix. I was very disappointed in the customer service. I will not be back.
