    So great! Los of food options! French toast was fabulous! Our waiter even extra cleaned the grill so that there wouldn't be any chance of cross contamination.

    I cook gluten free all the time everyday. I didn't really care for the fact that I had to cook my own. ( pancakes, eggs and hash browns) it's a neat experience but the food was not good at all. First we waited forever when there were empty tables. Then the griddle they provided for gf customers was old and kept turning off and the waiters said u just wiggle it. Half of my food wasn't even cooked when my husband had cooked his. I let the manager know and she apologized but until they get new griddles I Wundt think of coming back. On top of that the gf batter mix given is so gritty. It wasn't great I cudnt eat more than one. Another thing was don't come here to spend quality time- the ventilation system is so loud it's hard to hear, people were yelling over each other. It wasn't mine or my husbands cup of tea but it may be an experience that some one else besides us may enjoy

    Gluten friendly, you cook it yourself the smell is a little bit strong with the hot griddles, but everything else it good!!

    It's s cool experience if you are looking some thing different. There is a griddle at every table and you cook your own food. They are very good about gf, they actual put an electric griddle on which is dedicated gf (make sure you tell them when you get your table). They have gf pancake mix, toast, and French toast.

    This place is great! My boyfriend (non-GF) and I (Celiac) went for Sunday breakfast. I let the hostess know we had to eat GF and they seated us at a table with an allergen griddle. They also asked if I was celiac, which was reassuring. It was amazing! All you can eat GF pancakes with potatoes and eggs. The control freak in me appreciated cooking my own food in a restaurant, knowing that it wouldn't be cross-contaminated. Highly recommend!

    This place is a great place if you have Celiac. As soon as we went in we saw GF pancake mix for sale on a big rack next to the front counter. When we spoke to the hostess we advised her we needed GF and she said was it because of Celiac. That was impressive itself. She said she would need to prepare the griddle for us. Once it was prepared she sat us. The entire staff was well versed in the GF process. We got the GF pancakes and they were great. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend this.

    This place was fun, but definitely got a little crowded with 5 people and a baby at the same table and using the same griddle. It would've been more fun with only a couple people. We felt like the food wasn't anything special, especially the gf batter. I can make better pancakes at home - and I did just as much work as if I were making them at home. Overall pretty fun experience, but I won't rush back.

    This place is our breakfast place every time we come to Nashville. They have a dedicated griddle for the gluten free batter which ensures no cross contamination issues.

    Loved the staff! Very knowledgeable and so nice and friendly. Was delicious, reasonably priced and great service. Do the pancakes, you get your own celiac friendly griddle:)

    I went today and the waitress was only 2 weeks on the job. I was asking a lot of question about cross contamination and I got many `deer in a headlight` looks from her. A lot of `Im not sure` or `maybes`. Last thing I wanna hear, really. I had to get the owner who gave me more convincing answers. Maybe this place used to be celiac friendly, but not with this new waitress. Also the restaurant was kind of dirty. Didn't get sick but definitely Not going back.

    Went with a group of 4. Everyone thought their food (sandwiches and wraps) was terrible and not any better than something you could buy packaged at a store deli. I got the gluten free pancakes and was disappointed with how dry and bland they were. My topping was only enough to put on half the pancakes, and was nothing more than a small scoop of frozen raspberry seeds and a couple blueberries. The seating was cramped, the area we sat at was uneven so things were rolling off the table, and the sink in the restroom was clogged and full of standing water.

    The food was phenomenal! The wait staff were very knowledgeable about Celiac and cross contamination. I can honestly say that they have the best GF pancake batter I have had, I had to question the sever because the taste and texture was exactly like eating regular gluten pancakes. This place is highly recommended, and the next time I am in Nashville I will plan on coming here.

    Awesome find!! Driving through Nashville and we were looking for a safe, gluten free breakfast restaurant. After checking out the reviews online, we decided to go to the Pfunky Griddle. This place is amazing. There is a sign on the front counter to alert them if you have Celiac Disease. Each table has a built in griddle in the middle (think Hibachi style). If you have Celiac Disease, they will give you a portable griddle that sits on top of the regular griddle and they only use gluten free batter on these portable griddles to prevent cross contamination. We ordered the gluten free pancakes. There were 5 of us and we each ordered different toppings. They brought our batter out to us and we started cooking the pancakes on the griddle. Each person added their own toppings to their pancakes. There was even non-stick spray that was labeled Gluten Free to use. The pancakes were super yummy!!! We felt safe knowing that the food was not subject to cross contamination. Fun and friendly place with good food. Would definitely go back. Highly recommend for people with Celiac.

    This was a fun atmosphere and experience! They gave me a gluten free griddle for my food. I had the pancakes (which were made dairy free as well and can be made vegan). They weren't the greatest gluten free pancakes I've had but I think it's more about the atmosphere than excellent food. I'd definitely go back but probably get eggs and potatoes! Watching people around you who can't cook is pretty entertaining too!!

    This Nashville hotspot offers gluten-free pancakes and French toast with 20 different toppings to choose from. You can make your own breakfast or lunch on a hot griddle that's right in the center of your table or order from the kitchen if you prefer.

    This place is great! Their pancakes are delicious and their very GF friendly. My batter came separate and I had a separate spatula too. I will definitely be coming back.

    Well I have to agree the atmosphere is less than desirable. Indeed it is Celiac friendly. I had a special griddle and I made gluten free French toast. I was though very uncomfortable because we were seated out on an enclosed porch and the griddles built into the tables throw off a lot of heat on a hot summer day. The French toast though was very good as was the sausage. Not sure I would be a repeat customer because it wasn't aesthetically appealing. Glad I tried it though. My husband had his once a year on vacation sausage biscuits and gravy which he thought were very good. Looked like the kids (and there were a ton of them) had fun making their own pancakes.

    My husband and I went there for Brunch. We cooked our own pancakes so fun experience as the special gluten free griddle was on our table. They even have the mix for sale. Many awesome coffees to pick from too.

    This place is kinda gross. Food was fine, if you enjoy eating inside of a dumpster. Wear disposable clothes if you go. You WILL stink like an oily rag when you are through. That being said, they DO have GF pancakes. Still, if you are an able-bodied adult, who enjoys cleanliness, this may not be your thing.
