    GF pancakes! The special pancakes (chocolate chip, pecan, etc.) seem to be more topped than they are mixed in, but they were very good nonetheless! Came out on dedicated plates.

    They do a really good job with the gluten free pancake. You can flavor it will any of the other options on the menu like fruit, nuts, cottage cheese.

    Just enjoyed a decadent meal, most items available GF (except the maple syrup, due to caramel coloring additive). No worries! The cherry kijafa blintz needs no syrup! We also enjoyed the corned beef hash omelet and a side of fruit and bacon. coffee was meh but everything else delicious! service was great!!! *not celiac, just sensitive

    We were a little hesitant to eat here at first because me, my sister, and my mom all have celiac, and they told us they used the same griddle for pancakes as the regular ones. However, we were told they could use a separate pan for our GF pancakes. Me and my sister had chocolate chip pancakes, and my mom had the buttermilk pancakes. They were fantastic and none of us got sick!

    My boyfriend has celiac, has gotten very very sick twice in the past few months. Both times talked to the manager directly who assured us they had the kitchen staff switch out all the utensils and that they would oversee the whole thing. I do not doubt they did, I just think for highly sensitive celiac customers there is an uncontrollable factor that they are unaware of.

    They told us they could clean the grill but not guarantee and they would try. They wouldn't change gloves even though I asked them too they refused. The pancakes were delicious but my daughter stopped because she started to feel sick. Honestly after watching them (we sat by the kitchen) I just don't see how it could be safe. The waitresses are touching food on the plate when they are carrying them so it just can't be safe. Really bummed bc it was so good just not safe.

    The gluten free pancakes were really good! Though the second time I went, I did have some symptoms that I'm pretty sure came from here. The third time I was fine, and they told me the gluten free food comes on a special color plate so watch for that and ask about it. They don't claim to be gluten free here, just "friendly", so celiacs may wish to avoid.

I have never gotten sick from eating there (unless you count eating way to much). Best gluten pancakes around. The only breakfast joint I have found in 3 states that is awesome and delicious.

    I used to go here all the time; they make gf pancakes on the same surface as regular pancakes, but Im not too sensitive to that. The reason why Im never going back is, on two different occasions they didn't make my pancakes gluten free at all, and I got extremely ill.

    im extremely sensitive to gluten. It causes migraines and vomiting for hours. When I ordered the gluten free pancakes from The Original Pancake House, I told the waiter I not only wanted the gluten but I needed gluten free. He said "I understand" It took a long time for my pancakes to be cooked but it was worth it. I didnt get sick at all.

    Update: I had to take 2 stars off went for breakfast got the gluten free pancakes and found plastic cooked into mine, grossed me out I can't go back now! The pancakes are so good, and the bacon is thick sliced and wonderful. I eat here often. The sausage patties and links are rolled in flour, but ask your waitress to have them not roll them in flour it takes a couple extra minutes

    I ate here the day before Christmas Eve. I have celiac and have eaten here several times and the gluten free pancakes were very good. But this time I had a terrible reaction. I told the waitress I needed gluten free when she first came to the table, told her again when I ordered and she repeated it, but there was a mix up somewhere because I am certain that I was given regular pancakes. I have not been that sick since I went on a gluten free diet 8 years ago. Almost had to stay home and miss Christmas Eve dinner the next day. So be very careful and double check that you have gluten free food.

    When asking the wait staff about GF procedures to avoid x-contamination, they were not knowledgable. Considering the promotion of GF without preparation knowledge with regular food, I asked for the manager to explain the need for a knowledgeable wait and cook staff. I actually spoke to the owner who replied that I should leave.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed dining here this morning. It's always a challenge to find a restaurant that truly makes me feel safe about eating out. As soon as I mentioned Celiac Disease to our server, Molly, she explained that they have a separate grill, pointed out all the selections on the menu that are marked as gluten free options, and assured me that they understand how to control cross-contamination in the kitchen. Aaron, the manager, came out to our table three times to make sure I felt good about my meal and to let me know that they welcome questions. It felt wonderful to be able to relax and enjoy a meal out knowing the staff was well-trained and were taking care of me. In addition, the food was great, the service was exceptional, and the ambiance classy. Love this place!
