They are really good at telling people what’s gf on the menu and they use a separate pancake griddle for the gf pancakes to make sure that there’s no cross contamination

The gf pancakes and French toast were fantastic and for a side you can order four thick slices of bacon which is amazing!!

Just left here - Not the same as the Edina/Burnsville OPH's, they don't use the red plates to differentiate the GF from the regular stuff and their menu is quite a bit different. The waiter we had seemed pretty irritated by my questions since typically this has been a place I felt safe going to but Maple Grove location is a whole different thing apparently. Food wasn't as good as at other locations and time will tell whether I have a reaction or not....

I have eaten at two Original Pancake House locations in the Twin Cities. I like how many options they have for GF - not just a couple of menu options I didn’t feel like I had to miss out on anything when ordering. They definitely have trained their staff on food allergies and have defined procedures in place. Gluten free meals come on a different colored/rimmed plate and when they serve it to you, they verify “gluten free pancakes” or whatever you ordered. I had great meals both times and had no reaction afterward. I will go again.

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.

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!

This place is awesome. Very careful with your GF selection and excellent food and service. Their GF pancakes are the best we've ever had. It's by far our favorite breakfast place. Not every Original Pancake House has GF menu and pancakes.

I reviewed this place on YELP already but I need to get the word out. This location is NOT Celiac friendly, only the OPH in Rosedale is Celiac Friendly. The staff here had NO CLUE about Celiac when I visited this past October. They use the same Griddle for everything, please avoid. Go to Rosedale instead, feel free to ignore me and go anyway but ask them how they separate GF from non-GF and see what they say. You were warned. On the other hand the Rosedale location has a separate griddle and section of GF foods.

Maple Grove location has a great gluten free menu. On the actual menu, not a silly xerox copy in a binder, but on the actual menu. The chef knew well about GF and safety and cross-contamination. The waitress was very kind and helpful as well.

I got very sick from here! They promised gluten free pancakes. I asked multiple people and even double checked when they were served. They tasted to good to be true and they were!! I spent the rest of the day throwing up. Don’t take a chance here.

I’ve come here in the past but first time since all of Covid. I personally love the GF Banana Nut Pancakes! Highly recommend. They make a note of the allergy and I have yet to ever get sick after eating here.
