NOT celiac friendly. No gluten free menu, no dedicated cook spaces or utensils, most wait staff don't even know what they offer that is or is not gluten free. I've tried going thrice and got sick once and had to leave twice before ordering.

There is no GF menu. They cook everything on one grill. They said they would wipe it off but it was awkward. It’s late and I took a chance. The food tasted good but I’m starting to feel the tell tale signs of being glutened.

There is no dedicated GF menu. When I asked what the options were, I just got a vague answer about not picking something with obvious wheat and that I'd need to remove things from some dishes. The waitress was very nice, but the food was only okay, once I found something to eat.

They have a gluten free menu, if you ask. However it states they do not have a dedicated area in the kitchen. I was there for breakfast, and it was good.

Knowledgeable staff. Shocked that I could eat at a diner style restaurant for breakfast! Awesome hash browns! They understood cross contamination. Yum!

We went based on other reviews in other locations. This was a horrible place for GF. Nothing was available true GF. They hardly had anything that you could even "make" other than standard eggs and such.

I asked for gluten free options and was told they had none. I could order something I thought was gluten free and request no bread.

While I did not ask if they had a GF menu, I spoke with my waitress, who seemed knowledgeable when I said I needed GF. She made suggestions to help round out my breakfast meal so that I didn't get "shorted" by the lack of the biscuit. (Would have really LOVED the biscuit, though!) I only ate breakfast here, so I can't attest to other GF options. But I may eat here at a different time of the day to see how they do. The crab omelette was excellent and filling. I highly recommend Elmers for breakfast, which is served all day.

I was told on the phone that they had gluten free options. When i arrived the waitress was super confused and offered me eggs or potatoes. I would not recommend if you have celiac.

I was there a couple of weeks ago, quick seating due to it being empty is the best thing I can say about my visit. 1st I ordered Strawberry Lemonade, the waitress brought regular lemonade and acted like it was a bother to get the correct drink. My Mom and I ordered the same omelet, mine without onions and my Mom's with crispy hashbrowns. I'm Celiac but told her I had a flour allergy, made sure no batter in the eggs, and subbing fruit for the toast. I thought she understood. When delivered saw that the crispy hashbrowns were on my plate, asked for an extra plate to switch them, instead she huffed and took them away to have the kitchen reverse them. After she walked away we realized the omelets were backwards, we took care of it our selves but in the meantime my Mom's biscuit had been sitting on my Omelet. I was afraid of her reaction if asked again and took the risk. I didnt get my regular reaction but was sick the following week. I will add they were the saddest looking omelets and won't go back.

Our server Lawrence made me feel confident that he would communicate our needs to the kitchen. There is a dietary needs menu with more than a few options. Elmer's can't guarantee gf but we felt like they cared. Both my celiac sons were happy.

They have a great menu and keep the bread separate. They have a good selection and a great atmosphere.

Food is very good. This is a great place to be able to enjoy a conversation over a meal. They offer a GF worksheet to know what is GF on their menu. Great breakfast.

Friendly service. They don't have a dedicated gluten free menu but they have enough variety on the menu that you are not just stuck with eggs. Usual diner fare.
