Husband and I went here for breakfast one morning. Had driven 20 minutes specifically for this place since it had good reviews. Got there and it was an hour long wait, no biggie, there’s a ton of stores around the check out while waiting. I will say the hostess (young man / girl) were extremely rude / unfriendly. Our waitress apologized to us for it because she said she knew it was so bad. Once you got past them though, it was a pretty good experience! The food was good and a lot is served, our waitress was very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions and I didn’t have a single issue when leaving / since. It wasn’t the best breakfast I’ve ever had but it was a safe place with good food. I’d say it was easily a 7/10.

We were in Gatlinburg and Sawyer’s had a great review so we headed over for pancakes. We had a Denver omelette and GF pancakes. The omelette was meh. The pancakes were not cooked all the way through. My son and I both had three and all six were grossly under cooked. Waitress was nice, tea was hot. Don’t go out of your way to go here. Not worth the stop.

They have a separate griddle to cook the Gf pancakes on

The GF pancakes were so delicious and can be used to make any of the pancake options, along with all the yummy syrups!

Super friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating staff!

Waitress assured me that pancakes are cooked separately on clean surface. When I asked if I could have potatoes, she readily said, “Oh no, they are not gluten free.” I felt comfortable with her understanding and communication of gluten free.

I only pursued the pancakes, as I had heard how good they were! They were amazing, by the way! Bacon too!

We are here on Labor Day and arrived around 9:30am. There were a lot of people waiting, but we only waited for about 20 minutes for a party of six to be seated. The waitress was knowledgeable about their gluten free options and assured my husband his food was cooked in a separate area. He got bacon and eggs which came with three gluten free pancakes. When my husband asked about the omelets, the waitress was unsure if they were GF or not. After taking our order, our waitress returned and said, “I didn’t like the answer I gave you about the omelets, so I asked the cook. Yes! They are GF and we can cook you whichever one you like in a separate area.” He thanked her for her answer, but decided to stick with the bacon and eggs. This was our first experience eating here and were very pleased with the service, food, and prices. This is literally the first time we have ever eaten breakfast at a restaurant. We drove 4 hours home and my husband had no reactions!

The staff refused to share an ingredient list with us regarding their syrups. I felt less than comfortable. They do have GF pancakes, and this used to be a go to for us, but without their willingness to be helpful regarding ingredients, we will never be back.

I'm here and about to walk out. We waited 45 minutes to get in, then another 45 minutes for our food. The pancakes weren't cooked all the way through. My gf plate came to the table with non gf potatoes and the busser wanted to just sweep them from the plate. My food was cold, I could go on and on. It was awful, NEVER AGAIN

Update-I was formerly 5 stars and I just left with the manager comping our bill. They argued with me that the cinnamon syrup has never been gluten free and I could only have pb which they previously warned me about. Our food was completely different and I couldve used a straw for the grits. They brought the new kitchen manager to our table-their words, not mine. The manager came to our table and told us their kitchen manager had been their for years and their food has never changed and then asked us how many times we've been to their restaurant. When we explained a few times a year she quickly offered to take care of our meal. My sis offered to go in their shop and read labels on syrup they sell and was told they had problems with their labeling and currently aren't selling any of their syrups. Previous review: So unbelievably good I'm not usually pancake fan but had been craving cinnamon rolls....spoiler alert! They have cinnamon cream gf syrup! They were great with explaining what I could/couldn't have! Basically you can have the meat, eggs, grits and pancakes.

The waitress told me I could get any of the pancakes, that the potatoes weren’t gluten free but other than that “you would know more than me”. Overall the service was HORRIBLE- my family who are not celiac- got cold food and said it was the “worst breakfast” they had over our trip.

Both the hostess and our server were very knowledgeable about the GF items, and offered recommendations of items to try. I tried the pancakes with cinnamon cream syrup, and they tasted delicious. They let me know that none of the potatoes were GF since they cook them in the same fryer and the fries have a coating on them that have flour. They also let me know the peanut butter syrup is not GF, but the other 3 syrups are. I also got an omelette and it was tasty as well. I would definitely recommend this place to other Celiacs.

I would give this place zero stars if I could. They claim to have a dedicated kitchen and they do not, they also only serve pancakes that are gluten free. The waitress couldn't have cared less about my celiac disease and was very rude when we decided not to eat their because I am so severe. If you have celiac disease do not go here at all

The menu states gluten free pancakes are made from a box mix but can add toppings. I ordered blueberry pancakes and asked to add bananas. Pancakes were good and they brought out gluten free syrup which was impressive that they had that. My husband does not have celiac so we tried this restaurant for me but he would not eat here again as he was not happy with his food. I appreciated they had gfree pancakes but would not eat here again either.

On July 5th, we visited here about 9am. Wasn't terribly busy but there were still several tables available. My wife has a gluten allergy and so when we inquired about their options, the waiter changed his tone completely and we were treated as 3rd class citizens henceforth. I asked for the whole meal to be made gluten free so my wife could share some of my omelet. They did not do this and when I mentioned it, the attitude of the person helping our waiter got worse than it was when she brought our food out because it was a gluten free order. Thankfully my wife didn't get sick. She said the crapes were amazing and my omelet was good. Portions were filling but the wait staff is yet to be desired.

All I can say is, “yum”. You can get gluten free pancakes in any variety. They use Glutino brand mix. I ordered the pecan, my husband ordered the Hershey’s chocolate chip pancakes. Both were wonderful. The waitress we had was very knowledgeable, she told us what was gluten free and what wasn’t.

The eggs, bacon, sausage, and corn beef hash the rest of the table ate looked and they said tasted good. But I'm gonna be honest all I ate was a huge plate of the chocolate chip pancakes because they were so good!
