Amazing food!! Loved the fresh ginger and cucumber dressing. I was confused about how I did have a strong celiac response after I ate there, but it might have been the quinoa which I have now learned has a protein similar to gluten that can be troublesome for those of us who have Celiacs.
Love this place. Knowledgeable about celiac and preventing cross contamination. GF items on salad bar are marked as so. Just a great place for a sandwich and salad without having to worry about getting glutenized.
They have separate GF menu. Options include some of the sandwiches (with GF bread). Some of the soups. Baked potatoes. And the salads (plus or minus some toppings). Manager was very knowledgable about cross contamination and thorough when showing me my menu options and how they could sub or remove things to make my meal GF and tasty.
I had a great experience here! I made the host aware of my celiac when I made the reservation and when our group arrived. He made sure our server knew and handled it very professional. Our server was very knowledgeable about what contained gluten and pointed out the choices that were safe for me (& there were many!) Almost the entire menu could be adjusted to be gluten free. I ordered the special (hog snapper/pea risotto/ baby veggies). It was easily one of the best dishes I've ever eater. The shrimp and grits were also amazing. I definitely plan to return here before our trip ends!
One thing to watch out for- the online menu lists items as "gf" (gluten free) but some of them are wrong. Make sure to check with your server to confirm it is safe for a celiac.
Just wanted to say that every person that helped me was so great to change their gloves and use brand new ingredients from the fridge. But then they put the pizza straight on the pizza oven with no gluten barrier. NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY
This is the second time my son and I have gotten sick eating at this restaurant. The first time we assumed it was a fluke and decided to give them another try. What a mistake. We specifically told them we had a gluten allergy and ordered from the gluten free menu options. Half way through eating we each discovered wheat noodles in our gluten free pasta. They had cooked our gluten free noodles in the water they had cooked the wheat noodles in. They offered us a gift card which I declined because I will not set foot in the restaurant a third time. They claim they had procedures in place to cook things separately but obviously they didn't follow those procedures. I would worry about whether they follow other food safety guidelines as well.
If you have Celiac - stay far away from this place. They heat up the gluten free pasta in the same water they heat up all the other pasta. Also, their staff is extremely uninformed on gluten free sauces. I went there 3 times and each time I was told different options on what sauces I could have. One time I felt very funky after eating there - no surprise.
