The menu was labeled with GF but some of the menu was wrong - they said the meat was no longer Gluten free but still marked on the menu as GF. Otherwise they were very knowledgeable of what was GF!

GF pancakes were fluffy and could barely tell they were GF. Variety of flavors was great!

They had waffles on menu but wouldn’t let me have the same flavor of pancakes in a waffle.

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.
