I absolutely love this place! The menu labels items as gluten friendly. I talked with the waitress and she said to state you are allergic and they will clean the grill for gluten free pancakes. She advised against the waffles because the waffle iron is difficult to clean thoroughly. Also she said the crepes come out thicker than normal crepes due to the batter. I opted for the pancakes and they were delicious. I think if you just stick to the pancakes and explain your allergy you will be fine.

I was so excited to finally get a gluten free waffle!! They have lots of gf choices: crepes, pancakes and waffles! Don’t let the dated exterior fool you, it is a nice clean interior with good service! Well priced too!

The staff was very nice, the waiter asked me if I wanted GF bc of preference or allergy which I love to hear. They offer GF pancakes, crepes and waffles. I tried their GF pancakes and they were beyond amazing!

I had the most awesome experience here !! I ordered the blueberry gluten free waffle and I asked my server if the waffle was prepared with the other waffles. he stated that he wasn't sure and that he was going to ask therefore he came back and told me that they clean the waffle maker before making gluten free waffles. My suggestion is that you and sure you tell your server that you would like the waffle maker cleaned. the store manager Misty was so amazing she came out and spoke with us she wanted me to check the ingredient to ensure that I was able to eat the gluten-free waffle because of my other allergies that I have. she brought out the ingredients to the waffles to share with me and I was so excited that I was able to eat them. The only thing I wasn't able to eat was any of the syrup they are not a hundred percent Maple and because of other allergies I have as well I was not willing to try out an experiment unless it was a hundred percent maple. Next time I am just bringing my own syrup. I have to say I'm extremely excited to be able to eat breakfast somewhere that is gluten free friendly and it helps to have the staff be understanding and educated. although my server wasn't sure he didn't blow me off he went and checked. I wish we had a Misty at every restaurant that I went to!!! there are plenty of gluten-free choices on their menu !!!

They did express *Gluten Friendly* as you never know with flour in the air. They are not a dedicated GF place, but have a separate prep area. But that said, My son has never been happier. He got a huge (10-12 pancakes) plate of Buckeye GF Pancakes no issues. Lots of options! Over 7 pancake options, 5 waffles options. Tons of toppings. Just ask your server they will know

Great experience, and very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They talked me through their limitations since they cook all the pancakes on the same grill, which may be an issue for celiacs. My food was great, I had gluten free pancakes and stole some of my husbands omelet. Flavor was great. The whole family loved all the food and my kids had a great experience. We would absolutely go back. You should be sure to not use the sugar though, because they have oyster crackers in them to prevent moisture.
