Sawyer's breakfast was amazing! I had a cheese omelet and gluten free pancakes with homemade butter and grape jelly. It was delicious and only $8 for this meal.

They do NOT have a separate gluten free menu. I was told the pancakes were the only thing they had that was gluten free, but then the server said she "thought" the meat was too. She did say the pancakes would be made somewhere different from the regular pancakes though. The ham I ordered was so salty I couldn't eat it.

Gluten free without an up charge!!!! And delicious too. Gluten free pancakes prepared in a separate area so no cross contamination. Eggs not prepared on the same griddle as anything else. Very knowledgeable server and staff. Full size pancakes too!! And real bacon. My husband had the huge eggs, bacon, ham, pancakes, biscuits and gravy breakfast and said it was delicious. The service was quick and friendly. Our server Sonya was a delight. Go here!!

Very understaffed so maybe when times are normal it will be better. Was told they have a separate spot for GF pancake and all meats are good. Did not get sick.

Food is ok. When brought out severs have no real idea about cross contact. Then didn’t have time to listen when I tried to say I couldn’t eat side that was brought since it’s touching kids chicken.

Food I got was not that great but did not get sick (because I watched and used common sense). Def need to watch out. We decided to try other places instead of returning.

Delicious gf pancakes. You can add whatever you would like on top as well. All meats are gf and you can design your own omelet. The restaurant as a whole is super knowledgeable about celiacs. They cook all gf meals in separate designated area with different pans/utensils. They make sure to properly wash up and change gloves.

We’ve eaten here twice this week and the food was delicious both times. The meat, eggs, and grits are gluten free and they have gluten free pancakes available. The hostess let me know that they have a separate prep area for this. Portions are excellent and the taste is great!

My husband and I ate here for brunch. It was amazing. The staff was very knowledgeable including telling my that they could not guarantee the safety of the home fries. I appreciated the waitress honesty and keeping me from getting sick. When our food was brought to the table my husband made the comment that my GF pancakes looked better than his. Mine were so fluffy and absolutely delicious!!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
