Seriously ? These pancakes are HORRIBLE ! Completely uneatable . I chocked down one to be sure . But , I just can’t . 🤢 If you think theses are good GF pancakes you need to get out in the world . Wow just shocked someone liked these . I make better at home all the time and have had far better numerous places . I assume the regular pancakes are better . The 1 Star is for the GREAT service and descent coffee .

Celiac

Did not listen to me when I said I wanted gluten free pancakes. Brought out regular ones. If the person I went with hadn’t also ordered pancakes and I could see they were the same I would have eaten them. 20 minutes after leaving I am having cramping. I don’t recommend going here if you are very sensitive.

While I agree with Mike that the cross contamination is possible But the GF pancakes are delicious if you get a chance to try them.

If you are Celiac, this is not a safe location to eat at. All cooking is done in the same equipment as the gluten items. No separate space or dedicated waffle iron. Yes they have a gluten free menu but that's because they have ingredients that are gluten free but that's all. Major risk of cross contamination and getting sick.

Nothing is GF except pancakes and a Belgium waffle. Tasted good and I think it was buckwheat. Did not react.

I love how easy it is to eat a yummy breakfast with The Original Pancake house. Everything gluten free is served on a red plate. This way everyone from line cooks to servers to those cleaning tables know it is a gluten allergy.

My daughter has Celiac’s and she had a very bad reaction to their “gluten free pancakes”. She has had gluten free pancakes at other locations without reactions even when they’re cooked on the same pan as other gluten items.

When we called the restaurant to ask about the cross contamination, the manager said “the chef said he gave you gluten free pancakes.” That was it, no apologies, no attempt to make right on the order. If you have Celiac’s, please avoid their gluten free items.

GF pancakes in almost all flavor options. They have a designated grill space and spatulas for GF. One of our favorites.

This place every time you go in there is contradicting. One minute they have a gluten free griddle, next they don’t. So not sure what to believe. I’ve ate there twice and honestly was fine, but the third time they said the griddle wasn’t separate so I just left. Might be a ymmv kind of thing.
