Asked if we had an allergy and if we would like them to clean the griddle or use a separate GF griddle.

Excellent gluten free pancakes. Reliable safe breakfast any time.

They say they have gluten free pancakes but there cooked on the same surface as there regular pancakes, so you can’t really call them gf.. If you have celiac like me all you can have are bacon, eggs and fruit. So this place isn’t the best celiac friendly pancake place. ☹

Had chocolate chip pancakes and eggs that were both delicious at the 40th street location. I can’t say that it was celiac friendly but the food was good.

The 40th street restaurant.....I went there this morning and got the gluten free pancakes. I asked the girl if the syrup aaa gluten free as well and said "I don't think so. I don't know what gluten is though". After I told her I'm allergic and absolutely can't have it, she went into the back to ask someone. She came out two seconds later and said "it's gluten free"... so I ate my pancakes, left the restaurant and as soon as I got in the car I was sick. I don't know what it was, either the pancakes or the syrup. Make sure you double check before you eat there.

Server was unaware of menu. GF pancakes are cooked in same area as regular. Were willing to clean griddle, but not a guarantee. Luckily, eggs and potatoes are cooked separately.

Not really a GIC restaurant. They use the same grill and utensils for all pancakes. Overall, good food (if you know what to order). Expensive.

my family has been here twice-- once off season, once on. they were very attentive and eager to accommodate to my sister with celiac. she's had the gluten free pancakes twice, each time with no later difficulties, and the first time, the waitress even recommended the gluten free pancake mix they used! will come again.

I ordered the gluten free pecan pancakes and a side of bacon. I was very impressed. The pancakes were delicious! I highly recommend! This was a great place and I did not have any bad reactions. They had a gluten free menu as well. They asked if it was an allergy as well.

After speaking with the waitress, it became apparent that I could not eat here. The items on the list do not have gluten ingredients, but cross contamination is inevitable.

They have a GF menu, but they warn they do not have GF dedicated grill. I asked for my pancakes to be made in a pan and not on the grill. I was there at 7am, right when they opened. Our waitress said that mine would be the first ones on the grill so they did not use a separate pan. I did not get sick (yet), but unless you are going at 7am this is a RISKY choice.

They offer gluten free pancakes as a substitute for their regular pancakes. The waitress told me that she used a new scooper for the butter that was out of a new tub of butter. Confident that I did not get glutened. The pancakes were very good, could not tell the difference in taste.

Any meal with pancakes can have GF pancakes instead.
