We had a wonderful lunch at Merriman's. They worked with my gluten free, dairy free needs and my lunch was delicious. The other person in our party had a corn allergy and they were able to make a delicious lunch for them as well. Everyone was impressed and look forward to another meal at Merriman's.
Happy celiac- did not get sick eating here! Food was yummy, but tapas, so very small portions for a very big price, which is one of the contributing factors in the 4 star rating. Also, the waitstaff situation is confusing, our party of four had a hard time deciding who our server actually was ( we counted about 5 different people helping us during our visit), and because of this our drink orders kept getting messed up or completely forgotten. Still though, no ill effects after eating here which is huge.
The staff here was very understanding, they seemed to know the necessary safety measures to take when preparing gf food. They do have a physical gluten free menu to hand you but it mostly consists of burgers and sandwiches with lettuce instead of a bun. It IS a Burger place though so I don't think that's such a bad thing. This past visit I got the chicken tenders because I wanted to try something other than a lettuce Burger. They were chicken tenders without breading and tots on the side. All was well and good until I looked at the bottom of the tots where there was breading from an onion ring or two. I immediately stopped eating and packed up the food to give to my husband. This place is usually very helpful and great with gf but this time they weren't so careful and I got sick.
Good place for individuals who have gluten sensitivity/celiac. Gluten free bun was surprisingly good, not too hard or dry. Was also able to get fries, which they recommended no seasoning? But no sickness afterwards :)
We went last night and the wait staff said the chef has a family member who has a "gluten allergy." I'm not sure what exactly that meant but I knew they knew how to handle my food. They told me that they could adapt most anything on the menu. I stuck with my basic dinner out and had a ribeye, roasted red potatoes and green beans. I also had the choice of a bananas foster creme brûlée or a flan for dessert. I chose the flan for something different and it was amazing!!! I have found a new place to have a nice dinner out.
The chocolate GF cupcake was absolutely awesome. It was moist and extremely delicious with the peanut butter frosting.
The vanilla GF cupcake with double chocolate frosting was good, but a little dry for my taste.
I was very impressed, so I went back midweek to get some more and was disappointed to learn that they only serve GF cupcakes on weekends.
