GF food is prepared on the same grill as the regular food and there are no extra precautions in the kitchen. On gheir website they make it seem like you could realy eat gluten free pancakes here, but that is clearly not the case. I wouldn’t even be sure about something like the egg dishes they serve.

Gluten free pancakes, waffles and crepes. Excellent food, knowledgeable staff. Yummy! Not for celiacs as they cook on the same grill.

Very sensitive celiac and a non sensitive celiac have eaten here twice with success! Non sensitive loved the GF pancakes. Unfortunately there are not many GF/DF options but I was able to eat ham omelette without cheese and potatoes. Delicious. They didn’t have alternative creamer for coffee. Fresh Orange juice was good too

I typically love The Original Pancake House, it's one of my favorite places! But this location is the worst. When you walk in it smells. This is the second time eating at this location & we will never go back. I asked what pancakes could be made GF, the waitress was not helpful at all. I ordered GF pancakes, they tasted off & not sure exactly what it was, but they definitely made me sick!

They have good food but I would not suggest ordering the gf pancakes or waffles if you are sensitive to cross-contamination. They do not have separate pans or ways to cook the gluten free items so there is a big risk of CC.

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
