Had my first gf visit. Their gf pancakes are pretty good (even if a bit pricier). Menu doesn’t have as many gf options as most other breakfast places.

Pretty much all they had was pancakes and a lot of syrups but the pancakes are pretty good and the strawberry syrup is delicious

Delicious gluten-free pancakes. Though my waitress thought you could only order blueberries or bananas as add-ins, I see get reviews discussing more options. I docked a star because when they served me, I double-checked that they were gluten-free. They said "no" and quickly took them away. They were super apologetic and brought the correct ones out shortly after. Always confirm!

Staff was knowledgeable and there were plenty of gluten free options! I went with a large group from work and was concerned about my food getting mixed up with others. That didn’t happen though! They put there gluten free food one different colored plates! I ordered strawberry crepes and the were delicious! Best part was I have celiac disease and I didn’t get sick! Will eat here again!

Very understanding about GF items, lots of choices, knowledgeable staff, and the food tastes great. Any of the pancakes are tasty and good texture, I just wish they had GF Buckwheat. The only draw back is their popularity means a lot of rude and entitled people who don't like to wait and take it out on other customers and staff. Go on a weekday to avoid the passive aggressive suburban soccer mom's from hell.

Maybe it was the server I unfortunately had but I did not feel safe to eat here beyond a bowl of fruit. The gluten free pancakes are made on the same griddle; “we clean it off”. The waffles are made in the same waffle irons as non GF waffles, “ we clean that too and use it”. I’m truly happy fellow Celiacs have had success here but I find it to be too risky; thereby unsafe.

Fantastic food - Really fresh. Be warned they serve LARGE portions. Yelp ahead to get your name on the waitlist. We waited 45 minutes for breakfast and it was worth it.

I can’t say enough about this place.. awesome gluten free pancakes for a decent price-bonus- they serve coffee labs coffee which is really good (local). You can get add ins like banana or chocolate chip and a few others. I highly recommend this place.

GF labels on the menu. GF pancakes were excellent. Popular place so you may have to wait for a table.

Best pancakes I’ve had gluten free or not! Dedicated plates the staff knew what I could and could not have and what could and could not be modified.

My husband and I ate at the Original Pancake House, on Parmer Lane, for breakfast Sat. morning; it was our first time to eat there. I had three “Gluten Free” Original Pancakes which were so delicious!! They were nice and thick, and had substance to them. The soft whipped butter and warmed syrup was a nice compliment to the pancakes. I also had 2 thick strips of turkey bacon, which were a bit over cooked. My husband enjoyed his breakfast of Eggs Benedict w/regular bacon, and a half order of Buttermilk Pancakes. The coffee was piping hot and yummy. I wanted to compliment our waitress, Daniela. When I told her that I had to eat “gluten free” because I have Celiac; she seemed acknowledgeable about what I was saying, and showed me the GF items on the menu, and explained the cooking process in the kitchen area, which made me feel, at ease. Thanks! We will definitely be back!

Not safe for those with a serious gluten allergy or sensitivity. We walked in and walked right back out after inquiring about their cross contamination. Menu says on it shared kitchen and shared cooking surface. Asked the waitress if they could cook on a clean, separate surface and was told no they cook all the pancakes together on the same pan.

Best gluten free pancakes! I was diagnosed with Celiac 10 yrs ago. I've been to a lot of restaurants! I come here often, and I've never had a bad reaction after dining here. The pecan pancakes are phenomenal! You have to try them! 😋

They will try but the kitchen is not set up for true gluten free. Not safe for celiacs.

I called ahead to ask about a GF menu. Hostess said they have GF pancakes. I decided to meet family here for breakfast. While ordering I asked about pancakes and server was unaware of procedures for prep, only aware that they do offer GF pancakes. I also asked about their egg dishes and if any of these could be prepared GF. Her response - “we don’t put milk in any of our egg dishes.” I then decided to just have coffee. GF pancakes might be fine for someone without Celiac, but as a Celiac I would not eat food from this restaurant.

My wife has celiac and this place is very knowledgeable about what had gluten and what didn't. She had the Denver omelet and GF pancakes with bananas walnuts and whipped cream. No issues at all after. Great place.

Used to love this place! Have eaten here so many times, but today may have been my last. I went to the Wells Fargo championship after here and that was a huge mistake because I was SO sick and absolutely humiliated in front of so many people. Projectile vomit all over myself. Ruined the day for me and my hubby. BE CAREFUL eating here.

Not Gluten Free! They have gluten free waffles, but take NO measures to prevent cross-contamination. This was explained to me by a server. Stay away, especially if it's busy!

This place was wonderful! I was diagnosed with Celiac 5 years ago and haven't had a decent pancake until now! It was delicious and the service was fantastic! They knew all about Celiac and knew how to make sure that everything came out just right!

If I could give 0 stars I would. I got the gluten free pancakes and got so insanely sick. I will never go back.

These are the best pancakes that I have had I a really long time. They can make just about any of the pancakes with the gluten free batter. Delish

We were very nervous about eating here as there was only 1 review. We called ahead and were informed that the staff would clean the griddle before cooking any GF food. The waitress was not very knowledgeable but promised to be careful. The side of bacon needed to be sent back b/c she forgot to indicate it needed to be cooked separately. Overall the food was fine and my daughter did not get sick, which is the most important aspect of eating out for her.

I have eaten at two Original Pancake House locations in the Twin Cities. I like how many options they have for GF - not just a couple of menu options I didn’t feel like I had to miss out on anything when ordering. They definitely have trained their staff on food allergies and have defined procedures in place. Gluten free meals come on a different colored/rimmed plate and when they serve it to you, they verify “gluten free pancakes” or whatever you ordered. I had great meals both times and had no reaction afterward. I will go again.

Staff was TERRIBLE. Completely lied to me and continued to screw up my order. Gave me extra food after messing my order up, and then expected us to pay for their mistakes. Menu for gluten free sucks as well, but surprisingly the food was decent so if you’re lookin for bad service and mediocre food, this is the place.

We've been to 5 different Original Pancake Houses in 3 different states. This is the only one that did NOT have GF waffles. Otherwise, food was good.

Awesome breakfast. Really hard to find a safe breakfast place but this is it. All GF orders come out on a special plate. All GF orders are made in separate prep area and grill. Blueberry pancakes are great. Will be a regular here.
