    This was by far the most amazing gluten free meal I’ve had since being diagnosed with celiac. The pancakes are amazing and the staff super helpful. My family that isn’t gf loved their food as well.

    I have celiac disease and was excited to try a place that “gets it.” I let my server know that I have celiac and asked for a gf menu. I ordered a pancake. After I was three bites in, my server came back and said he needed to stop me because he couldn’t be certain my pancake was gf because it didn’t come out of the kitchen with the gf toothpick in it. He apologized, took the plate, and had another remade. Thankfully, I don’t have digestive problems when I eat gluten (I have other symptoms) so I don’t know if I was “glutened.” He was very apologetic and I appreciated his honesty. But for someone who gets sick, this could have ruined your day. The pancake was great! Smelled like a funnel cake! I’ll definitely be back to try lunch.

    Even though you still need to ask for the GF menu; it was fantastic to finally have a breakfast skillet again. No reaction to the "Kitchen Sink" and my non-GF mate really enjoyed his Huevos Rancheros (despite having verde/tamatillo sauce instead of the usual red sauce). Will visit again before leaving St. Louis! FYI: Sunday morning (appx. 0900 check in) wait is 35-40min. thru the lunch rush...

    love, love, love. My waitress was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating about eating gluten free. An important note: they usually make their GF pancakes on the same surface as their regular ones, BUT if that's a concern for you, you can ask that they make it on a separate skillet. That's what they did for me and it was wonderful!

    Fun atmosphere, good service, and great food. i had the "Meg Ryan". It ncluded a gf pancake the size of a dinner plate, eggs, bacon, and skillet potatoes. I could hardly eat half of it. We will be going back for sure.

    Both kids have to eat gf and they never get pancakes when we go out for breakfast. It was so great they got to order something fun for a change. We loved this place. No issues after eating here.

    Disappointed at best. The menu was impressive, there aren't many places you can get gluten free pancakes. That said, hubby got a hash scramble that tasted like pre-cooked turkey and had a funny texture. My chicken sandwich was under seasoned and would have greatly benefited from some bacon and sautéed onion. The gf bun wasn't bad, but it was doused in fake butter and I just couldn't get past that. Overall, the service was decent and everything was edible but it was by no means great. We won't be going back.

    Great place! The owners daughter has Celiac Disease so he offers "Hanna's menu" in her honor. GF options with attention to cross contamination. Eternally grateful The Shack!

    Blueberry and chocolate chip pancakes were amazing. Service was great. Plan ahead though, long wait on Sunday morning. Totally worth it!

    Great place. Separate gluten free menu, including gluten free pancakes. No GF toast, but they have a GF roll. Just ask for it and have it toasted. Hash browns are cooked separately to avoid cross contamination. Also, all GF food identified with GF stick.

    We had the regular menu and the gluten free menu and my husband pointed out that their "beer braised" brisket was on the gluten free menu! Pointed this out to the manager who was very surprised, like, "oh, yeah? Beer is gluten?" By the time they sent out our food they made a mistake on all four plates and gave us regular pancakes instead of gluten free pancakes. Gotta watch it here-they don't really understand!

    They have a gf menu and the staff and manager were very knowledgeable and they even mark your plate with a special stick so they don't mix it up and carry it separately! Very sensitive celiac and didn't get sick! Food was delicious and they have gf pancakes!

    I was so happy to find a place to eat while traveling. The food and service was great. I didn't get sick afterwards which was important as we were just to passing through. My non-gluten free family members enjoyed their meal as well. Wish we had one of these at home

    LOVE this place for breakfast/brunch! They have a dedicated skillet to make the GF pancakes. However The waffles are made on the same iron as gluten waffles.

    I went to the shack this morning for breakfast and they do not have a gluten free menu our kitchen. The food on the menu would be perfectly fine for someone without celiac but just trying to stay away from gluten. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone with severe celiac.
