The food was not good and i ended up getting sick from the food and the waitress didn’t even know much about gluten free. Will not be returning
Most pancakes are available gluten free. However, they are marked as 'gluten friendly' on the menu as they are cooked on the same griddle as wheat pancakes and so they cannot guarantee they are gluten free.
the menu is very clear on which items can be made gluten free. staff was very knowledgeable! is a little more pricey compared to a normal pancake house, but the size proportions are huge!!! well worth the money and no reaction afterwards! will most definitely come back
Great tasting food! Staff we spoke with all seemed educated. I didn't get sick after eating there. Pancake options are available. This is notated, in part, on the menu.
Waitress was knowledgeable, but of course that's hit or miss in such a busy place. I asked where the GF pancakes are cooked and she went to double check and I was told they have a separate grill for gluten free. I had the two by four, which is two eggs and four pancakes. I also had an order of hashbrowns which I asked to be cooked on the GF grill just in case. The pancakes were delicious! So much so that I had to double check that they were indeed GF. They arrived with a little toothpick flag in them and we're noticeably different from my husband's gluten pancakes though. The waitress told me they have another celiac customer that brings her Nima tester in and has never had a problem.
The Original Pancake House in Aliso Viejo, CA is not celiac friendly. The menu lists gluten friendly pancakes with a note that they are not for celiacs. When I asked the server if the griddle could be cleaned off before making them, she said: No they won't do that. But if you are not celiac and just want to eat GF pancakes, they are good.
We are from Columbus, OH and frequent the OPH in Columbus. This location doesn’t hold a candle to that one! No GF waffles, only a couple GF pancake selections, and the pancakes unfortunately taste GF (the ones at the OPH in Columbus don’t taste GF). As a disclaimer, I probably would have enjoyed it more had the location in Columbus not already totally exceeded my expectations.
Delicious gluten-free pancakes. Though my waitress thought you could only order blueberries or bananas as add-ins, I see get reviews discussing more options. I docked a star because when they served me, I double-checked that they were gluten-free. They said "no" and quickly took them away. They were super apologetic and brought the correct ones out shortly after. Always confirm!
Staff was knowledgeable and there were plenty of gluten free options! I went with a large group from work and was concerned about my food getting mixed up with others. That didn’t happen though! They put there gluten free food one different colored plates! I ordered strawberry crepes and the were delicious! Best part was I have celiac disease and I didn’t get sick! Will eat here again!
Very understanding about GF items, lots of choices, knowledgeable staff, and the food tastes great. Any of the pancakes are tasty and good texture, I just wish they had GF Buckwheat. The only draw back is their popularity means a lot of rude and entitled people who don't like to wait and take it out on other customers and staff. Go on a weekday to avoid the passive aggressive suburban soccer mom's from hell.
Maybe it was the server I unfortunately had but I did not feel safe to eat here beyond a bowl of fruit. The gluten free pancakes are made on the same griddle; “we clean it off”. The waffles are made in the same waffle irons as non GF waffles, “ we clean that too and use it”. I’m truly happy fellow Celiacs have had success here but I find it to be too risky; thereby unsafe.
I can’t say enough about this place.. awesome gluten free pancakes for a decent price-bonus- they serve coffee labs coffee which is really good (local). You can get add ins like banana or chocolate chip and a few others. I highly recommend this place.
I go there and get the banana split waffle every time, great knowledgeable staff.
My husband and I ate at the Original Pancake House, on Parmer Lane, for breakfast Sat. morning; it was our first time to eat there. I had three “Gluten Free” Original Pancakes which were so delicious!! They were nice and thick, and had substance to them. The soft whipped butter and warmed syrup was a nice compliment to the pancakes. I also had 2 thick strips of turkey bacon, which were a bit over cooked. My husband enjoyed his breakfast of Eggs Benedict w/regular bacon, and a half order of Buttermilk Pancakes. The coffee was piping hot and yummy. I wanted to compliment our waitress, Daniela. When I told her that I had to eat “gluten free” because I have Celiac; she seemed acknowledgeable about what I was saying, and showed me the GF items on the menu, and explained the cooking process in the kitchen area, which made me feel, at ease. Thanks! We will definitely be back!
Not safe for those with a serious gluten allergy or sensitivity. We walked in and walked right back out after inquiring about their cross contamination. Menu says on it shared kitchen and shared cooking surface. Asked the waitress if they could cook on a clean, separate surface and was told no they cook all the pancakes together on the same pan.
I called ahead to ask about a GF menu. Hostess said they have GF pancakes. I decided to meet family here for breakfast. While ordering I asked about pancakes and server was unaware of procedures for prep, only aware that they do offer GF pancakes. I also asked about their egg dishes and if any of these could be prepared GF. Her response - “we don’t put milk in any of our egg dishes.” I then decided to just have coffee. GF pancakes might be fine for someone without Celiac, but as a Celiac I would not eat food from this restaurant.
Really good pancakes. Didn't get sick. Staff was knowledgable.
Used to love this place! Have eaten here so many times, but today may have been my last. I went to the Wells Fargo championship after here and that was a huge mistake because I was SO sick and absolutely humiliated in front of so many people. Projectile vomit all over myself. Ruined the day for me and my hubby. BE CAREFUL eating here.
Staff was knowledgeable and knew exactly what was made in a separate fryer from gluten- good place for a celiac!
This place was wonderful! I was diagnosed with Celiac 5 years ago and haven't had a decent pancake until now! It was delicious and the service was fantastic! They knew all about Celiac and knew how to make sure that everything came out just right!
We were very nervous about eating here as there was only 1 review. We called ahead and were informed that the staff would clean the griddle before cooking any GF food. The waitress was not very knowledgeable but promised to be careful. The side of bacon needed to be sent back b/c she forgot to indicate it needed to be cooked separately. Overall the food was fine and my daughter did not get sick, which is the most important aspect of eating out for her.
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.
Had a great experience here with my 4yo daughter who has Celiacs. The staff answered all my questions and I felt confident eating here. Also best gluten free pancakes I have tried yet.
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.

Many Original Pancake House locations offer gluten free pancakes. Please speak to your server about taking the proper precautions to prevent cross contamination, if necessary.
