I've been here twice, both times for breakfast. The food is good and the service is too. The hotel is supposed to be haunted but no signs of ghosts in the cafe.

Historic and some say haunted restaurant, hotel and bar! Have had lunch and dinner here. It was good. Not a huge menu but it's quality and delicious food. Take the time to walk the lobby and read about the extra happenings that have taken place.....

The staff and crew at the Palmer House are super great and always make sure you are taken care of and have everything that you need. Very friendly and the food is excellent, raising the bar for other eateries in town!

Our meal was wonderful, although maybe part of it was the surroundings and ambiance. Waitress was an older absolutely charming attentive gal. Wandered around just soaking it all in, the Palmer House has a very nice, "feel" to it's entirety. With the stop.

In two miles you have an opportunity to enjoy a bit of American history. You are also going to have a bite to eat in a pub providing great beer and tasty pub food. Try the Cuban sandwich with onion rings and the Black IPA...More

Sorry for the delayed response. I cannot give a 100% answer to this question. I know I can say that I do not recall a section on the menu marked 'Gluten Free', but that isn't saying that in small print somewhere wasn't... More
