THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU! There is a delicious GF menu with many options that are celiac safe AND an amazing regular menu. I get the Meg Ryan, which is on the regular menu, but it's just a combination of carb, meat, eggs, and hashbrowns, so I order it with the GF blueberry pancakes. You will feel like a normal human eating here. THANK YOU to the owners! (It get crowded, so get there early or late!)

They have a dedicated space for the gluten-free food which is important for the person who has celiac disease.

I have a wheat allergy and decided to try this restaurant. They were busy and I decided to get a take out order. I had gluten free blueberry pancakes with bacon and hash browns. The food was really good. The staff seemed very knowledgeable about the gluten free menu and food.

I always love finding gf treasures on vacation! My small town has no options. This place is celiac friendly. Their daughter is celiac and their story is on the back of the menus. The staff was very knowledgeable and kind. For the first time in 5 years, I ate a pancake from a restaurant! I didn’t know that was possible. I highly recommend giving them a try if you’re in the area!

Owners have a daughter with celiac. Everyone from hostess to servers are well educated and don't bat an eye when asking for their (extensive!) gluten free menu or ordering from that menu. I felt like normal diner for once. It was wonderful. The fact that the food, atmosphere, and service are fantastic kind of makes it seem to good to be true...but it's deliciously true!!

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 food. Always amazing. Best GF pancakes ever. Wait is super long on the weekends and they don’t allow you to call ahead but it’s so good that I keep going. Their sister restaurant is next door and also tasty. Just no breakfast there. They seem to really care about GF and always able to answer questions.

Although they are amazing with GF sensitivities, if you have dairy sensitivities on top of GF beware. They add sour cream to pancakes and egg batter. I ended up eating special eggs made for me today, that’s it. The fruit I ordered never came. Although the manager was super sweet and accommodating. I don’t understand why America feels the need to add all this extra crap to their food. Whatever happened to “just eggs” or “just pancakes.” That’s why everyone has high cholesterol, seriously.

I finaply found tine to go, and on their busiest day. Long wait, but I heard it was worth it. Sunday's they only serve breakfast, no lunch which was dissapointing. My denver omlete had cheese, eggs, ham, and green peppers. It was overcooked on the outside, and almost undercooked on the inside. It was bland. Hash browns were brown on one side, so majority was not crunchy. I was excited to not be sick an hour later, but terribly dissapointed a few hours later when I ended up sick. I will go back to try their lunch sometime, but will be very diligent in how I order and ask a lot more questions. While their menu states CF and I believe they have trained their employees, we are always at risk. Overall, the omelette was not at all worth the 65 minute wait.

Best breakfast place I have ever been to. They put a stick on the plate to tell you it was prepared in the gluten free kitchen, sometimes they forget the stick and the waitress will double check or just get it remade to be sure. The gluten free pancakes are really good. You can do the "do it yourself meg ryan" on the regular menu and it can be gluten free or you have the gluten free menu. I normally get their white trash screwdrivers with titos. There was 1 time they messed up my drink and I got sick but before I finished it, the waitress in training came over and let me know what happened, made me a new one, and comped it. I felt bad for her because it wasn't her mistake and she knew how bad it could be for me. Other than that 1 moment that 1 time, I have not had any issues there and love taking my family and we have gone at least 3 dozen times.

Both times my daughter ate here she got sick, even after making sure the servers knew how important is was that her food be gluten free. Maybe it’s just the two servers we had because we have heard how great they are here with being GF. Disappointing though as my daughter doesn’t dare to go back.

This is one of my FAVORITE breakfast places!! They have delicious gluten free options, including pancakes, sandwiches, and fries! The manager even told us that they could make crispy chicken tenders for us if we let them know in advance. I have been to this restaurant three times and have never been disappointed. I would definitely recommend this place!

Absolutely love this place! I got an omelette with shredded hash and a chocolate chip pancake. Yes, a pancake! It was incredible. Our waitress was so friendly and very accommodating with my questions. I very rarely eat out because I worry about getting sick but Shack's has a dedicated skillet and preparation space AND my meal came with a Gluten Free flag to signal my allergy. The owners daughter has celiac and they have a specific gf menu. Can't wait to come back and try their lunch items
