We were there during Xmas break. Management is unwilling to maintain GF dedicated pancake griddle when it’s busy.

The gluten free pancakes were good. They had a few gluten free items and they cook it separately. A different person brings the GF food to the table so I knew it was the GF food. My son never got sick from them. I would definitely go back.

Staff was TERRIBLE. Completely lied to me and continued to screw up my order. Gave me extra food after messing my order up, and then expected us to pay for their mistakes. Menu for gluten free sucks as well, but surprisingly the food was decent so if you’re lookin for bad service and mediocre food, this is the place.

I would have given them a 5 star, but this particular location changed their gluten free pancake mix and the pancakes are chewy and gross! Not to mention, the 2 times I have had them since changing the batter, I get sick! I would not recommend this restaurant for people with high gluten intolerance or celiac disease!

The service was really good. Very clean and comfortable environment. It’s not a dedicated GF restaurant, but my son says he had zero cross-contamination- he knows almost immediately if he is cross-contaminated. There was a great selection of GF options as well. We will absolutely be back!

There’s a dedicated GF pancake menu online with a solid variety of pancakes. GF pancakes are very good, and it’s nice to have choices beyond buttermilk.

Complaints- once I got glutened. Their GF pancakes taste very similar to their regular pancakes and I didn’t realize until I was halfway through the meal. Now I have my family try a piece first. Also, they are super expensive, and the GF pancakes are really tiny now. I haven’t eaten there since.

However, ever since I got glutened I have been asking them to please double check that they’re GF, and they have been writing it on the box to let me know they saw it.

It’s expensive so we don’t eat here often, but it’s nice to have the option. I wish they would expand to crepes.

They have items marked gf, and even offer gf griddle items, however, there is only 1 griddle so risk of cross contamination is high. Other items are prepped in a separate kitchen area and are much safer. Their omelettes are amazing!

One of my absolute favorite places to have breakfast, and has been for years. Though they do offer Gluten Free* options on their menu, they specifically state that there is no guarantee against cross-contamination as they do not use separate cooking equipment for their gluten free items.
