We live out of town and when we come in town to see our gaping we we make this restaurant a must stop. Our daughter has celiac and we have been here twice. Both times we tell the staff of her condition and they have been very accommodating. The gf food is delicious, staff is so friendly and professional. We live this place! Thank you for helping us find delicious gf food!

We have a newly diagnosed Celiac in our family and are traveling from out of town. I found this restaurant on the Find Me GF app and was delighted when I read that the owner’s daughter herself has Celiac and thus, the restaurant is sensitive to the challenges of eating out with Celiac Disease, especially when traveling. I was excited that I’d found a place for my family with GF options as well as options for our non-GF members.

Imagine my surprise when my daughter ordered GF pancakes and was told that the restaurant was out of GF pancake mix! On a Saturday? The day before Mother’s Day? One of the most popular weekends of the year for family dining? At a restaurant owned by a family affected by Celiac?

Needless to say, we were disappointed. The food was good but because they had a hard time accommodating my daughter’s health needs, I would not recommend as a gluten-friendly establishment.

I had a kitchen sink skillet. There was more food than I could eat. The wait staff was fully aware of the GF options. They have a separate GF menu. I can’t wait until I am one KC area again to try items off of the breakfast menu.

We’ve eaten here many times today without issues. The food is great and they have a great gf menu. But today my daughter ate the chocolate chip pancakes and got sick. This makes us sad, as it’s our go-to breakfast place that we’ve always felt safe at.

SO GOOD! The Shack is one of few places you don’t sit there feeling left out when everyone else is eating pancakes. YES, pancakes!!! The owners daughter has celiac and they have a special GF menu called Hanna’s at The Shack, full of breakfast and lunch options. Your food comes out with GF labeled toothpicks so you don’t sit there questioning, why does this look SO good, you sure I can eat this?!?

This place is a gluten-free jackpot for breakfast and lunch with a totally celiac-friendly menu and kitchen. If you delight in actually having a sandwich for lunch, this is your spot. I had the turkey with sweet potato tots (yum!). Friendly, fast service and funky decor make it a win.

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.

A fun place with possibilities, however when I when there they were out of everything that was baked goods. So disappointed. I have been on the road for a week and and breakfasts for gluten free are non-existent. So tired of eggs.

The Shack has multiple locations in St. Louis. The owner’s daughter has Celiac. They also own The Corner Pub.

There is a separate gluten free menu. They have a separate fryer and kitchen space for gluten free items. My food came with an “allergy” tag. I felt very safe. The food and service were very good.

Fantastic celiac awareness. They put little sticks in it that say gluten free if you tell them you have an allergy. The menu is pretty robust and the staff is knowledgeable. Love the gluten free chocolate chip pancakes!
