So many options on their breakfast menu. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. My food came out on a special red plate indicating allergy/gluten free order. I had the pumpkin pancakes and my daughters had the chocolate chip pancakes. Both were delicious and I have had no sensitive celiac issues!
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.
My husband and I have tried eating here on several occasions. Each time the staff seems less and less knowledgeable, and takes our allergy concerns less seriously. Most recently the manager came over to explain the allergy friendly meal process including identifiable multicolored plates. Our food came out on regular plates and we were told they don’t have colorful plates anymore by the waitstaff. After getting sick yet again from this locations it is needless to say we will not be coming back.
BEST GLUTEN FREE BREAKFAST! My daughter and I both have celiac, and we had yet to find a restaurant to serve her gf French toast. This place knocked it out of the park. I had the strawberry crepes and was also in heaven! They prepared our meals on dedicated gf equipment, too. The service was fast and friendly. We'll be back for sure!
Great GF pancakes! They roll their sausages in wheat flour, though, and those are cooked right next to the bacon, so make sure to ask for a clean grill if you order bacon and are celiac. They seemed happy to accommodate me. I did not have a reaction the one time I ate there.
I had to go through several different staff before the manager came out to help. They eventually gave us a server who had a better idea of how they cooked the food and certain ingredients. The majority of the GF menu is made with Pamela's products so they all have dairy in them. I was able to have the French toast (GF, DF) because they use GF bread dipped in an egg batter. If you only have to avoid gluten then this is a great option.
I can have what I actually want at OPH. Ooey, gooey maple syrupy goodness away from home. Imagine the joy! One of my favorite places to be...the servers there are top notch too. Thank you OPH. OPH omelet is a fave, as are the apple crepes. Choc chip or bacon pancakes great too.
I had the pigs in a blanket "pancakes with sauges" with a side of hashbrowns. I also had some of my wife's western omelet. Everything was very good. It was hard to believe the pancakes were GF, they were so good. When you order something GF it will come out on a colored plate. I will definitely come back again.
Hit or miss. I've been going for years and got sick and never went back. The staff tends to be irresponsible with making sure the chefs know the allergy is present. If you are sensitive, I wouldn't risk it but if you do be very clear the severity of the allergy
Just left here - Not the same as the Edina/Burnsville OPH's, they don't use the red plates to differentiate the GF from the regular stuff and their menu is quite a bit different. The waiter we had seemed pretty irritated by my questions since typically this has been a place I felt safe going to but Maple Grove location is a whole different thing apparently. Food wasn't as good as at other locations and time will tell whether I have a reaction or not....
Checked the app and found OPH here and in Yelp. They have a pretty good selection of pancakes and egg dishes that are gluten free. I had the thick cut bacon pancakes gf and my husband had regular chocolate chip pancakes. We're both enjoyed.
I visited this location for the first time but when I ordered my GF meal, cook came out to tell me that they can’t make any promises on cross-contamination. I appreciated the honesty but also confused because the other locations I have visited seemed pretty confident about this. He did tell me he would be as careful as possible. All was ok, but made me nervous.
Love their gluten free ancient grain pancakes and bacon. Hubby likes the gluten free ones better than their regular ones even though he has no issues with gluten. 2X2X3 for me. Two eggs any way you like them, two strips of bacon and 3 gluten free pancakes.
I don’t know why this place has such good reviews. My gluten free pancakes were raw, and the “tropical syrup” was just orange peels in syrup. The service was terrible, and we had to wait fifty minutes for our food. Even then, they didn’t bring out half of our food until we were already done eating. Will not be returning.
We’ll be back! And they do “take out”! But for this app, I would not have considered going here for GF food, since it certainly doesn’t sound safe. It is safe! Server explained GF is clearly marked on the menu (& it’s almost everything!) and is served on yellow plates - always make sure that happens. For naturally GF food like eggs, make sure to tell the server you need it prepared GF & celiac safe. My omelette was huge & fluffy (more like a round egg bake, not thin & folded over) & I took 1/2 home. It came with 3 full sized GF pancakes which were delicious. My son gobbled up the GF chocolate chip pancakes, a staple he hasn’t been able to have since pre-diagnosis. It’s sweetened, whipped cream made it perfect for him. He also had the chicken chipotle crepe & was impressed at how good it was, & it was spicy, not bland. Non-celiac daughter raved about her raspberry French toast. Receipt properly showed what needed to be GF, and it was affordable! Like I said - we’ll be back. They were only serving the “breakfast menu” this Sunday. I’m curious what their lunch menu has on it.
Gluten free pancakes served on a separate plate. everything is made naturally. good friendly service . pancakes sold separately but can be part of a package with eggs sausage bacon. save a few $$$
No gluten free menu. When I asked, hostess said pancakes could be made with Gluten Free batter but might be contaminated; I took a pass on pancakes. We ordered a Greek Omelette and an aged White Cheddar omelette with hash browns. Both omelettes were extremely over cooked and barely edible. When I asked our server if this was their normal preparation, she said “we’ve been really busy and maybe the griddle was too hot”. No offer to adjust bill or replacement Omelettes. We were on a tight schedule, so we just paid and left. These were the worst omelettes I have ever eaten in any restaurant. Take your business elsewhere.
Asked waitress if their GF pancakes were cooked in a separate area & she said, "Not necessarily." Not impressed with that & I am a very sensitive celiac so pancakes here weren't an option for me. Omelets & potatoes were delicious though!
GF pancakes and crepes! All GF items marked on menu. GF meal is ALWAYS served on a colored plate, while others come on white. I have eaten here several times now and have been safe every time. As a super sensitive Celiac, this means a lot to me.
Our server, Radion, went above and beyond to help ensure that my food was GF friendly. Very caring and encouraging young man! They let me know that the food isn’t gluten FREE but is gluten free FRIENDLY. Ample GF menu. We came twice.
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.
Staff was accommodating on making my meal GF while saving us $ on combos because my wife is not GF. Pancakes seem to be the only GF special item and they are delicious! Typically get the eggs, sausage, grits, & GF pancakes and have no gluten sensitivity to any of those items.
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 .
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.
The gluten free pancakes were good. They had a few gluten free items and they cook it separately. A different person brings the GF food to the table so I knew it was the GF food. My son never got sick from them. I would definitely go back.
