    Burt the manager was very helpful. My food was good and I even got the gf cookie. They told me all gf items are prepared with dedicated equipment so it seems like it's pretty safe. I can see how if wait staff is not careful one could get glutened so I think one must not be afraid to ask questions. I wish their menu was a little broader but I will try BJs again!

    management is basically worthless... on their cell phone Facebooking at the bar while guests are sitting there with the wrong food. I've been here 4 times and contaminated twice. Wrong cookie for desert by the waitress... how do you do that? Service is hit or miss Brenna and Greg in the bar are good. That's the only reason for 2 stars instead of zero.

    Super limited menu! I don't even think it's worth going. When I go to eat with someone and this is what they choose, I eat ahead of time. Like others say, very slow service.

    Ashamed to admit that we kind of went just for the dessert! Gluten free dessert in a restaurant is a rare treat. My daughter and I both had gluten free salads (Santa Fe) which were really good and the pizookie was to die for. Neither of us had any issues afterward. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that service really is pretty slow there. It took a long time to get our food.

    Good menu and very good about contamination. The only reason I don't give them a 5 is that you can't get outta there in less then 2 hrs. They have service problems and I have always have to send back my food at least once, not because of gluten issues, just badly cooked or wrong food. Very safe place to eat for celiacs.

    We have been to Bj's several times. The gf pizza and capresse salad are wonderful. Most of our visits the manager came to our table to explain how they prepare gf and their efforts to avoid cross contamination. Only once did we encounter an idiot server but we just asked to speak with the manager and everything was fine. My biggest complaint is that I am also wheelchair-bound and it is a real hassle to get to the restrooms. You either have to enter through the take out door or traverse carefully through the crowded bar area.

    FYI...we were at BJ's Restaurant & Brewery in Colorado Springs, CO today with my family. My kids are NOT gluten-free, but I am due to Celiac disease and my husband is to support me. We went there because we were told they were great supporters of GF patrons. When the waitress came I asked her a ? about an item on the menu and she didn't know..she took the gluten-free menu from me and proceeded to search..then she looks at me and says how about a potato because I really don't know about anything else...I said sure. Then when my husband ordered, off of the GF menu, she interrupted him and said is this an allergy or a preference? Not sure WHY she would ask that but I can say it made us VERY nervous about why she would ask that...is the food that is a "preference" going to be cross contaminated?? I ordered the sirloin...it was bland, no seasoning at all..it was supposed to have onions sauteed on top (per the menu), it didn't...I asked if they had any sauce, that was gluten-free...the man who brought out the food said he would check...he didn't. They promised my sons ketchup...we never received it and we had to ask for silverware. Overall, I was NOT impressed with the restaurant...the gluten free food was BLAND...and over all a poor experience was had by all. Just wanted to let you know...I know they claim support and endorsements by the GiG...but from my experience there are definitely BETTER GF restaurants out there!

    So I always get the same thing the tomato soup no croutons and a baked potato. They were out of baked potatoes so my waiter offered a salad. I made sure to let him know it had to be gluten free, but when it came there were crumbs all over the top and a huge piece of crouton in the salad! I showed him this and he was very apologetic but he never brought out a new salad! Or asked if there was anything else he could do! At other bus when they messed things up they gave us a free gluten free pizookie! Still like bus as a good chain option for gluten free but was very disappointed in this location

    Only one star because I had to . My daughter never eats out because of the anxiety of being glutened. Tonight, she was glutened so badly, we barely made it home before she became violently ill. My husband found a noodle in his gluten free dish. The gluten free dishes were delivered to the table at the same time with the gluten dishes, waitress knocked my daughters silverware off of her plate and picked it up with her gluten contaminated hands, not even realizing this could be an issue. She ordered a gluten free pizza and a gluten free pazookie. Never again. Now my daughter will spend the rest of her birthday and the days following sick.

    I eat here regularly with my family. BBQ chicken chopped salad "with no onion strings" and a gluten allergy explained is what I order. Others in my party get the gluten free pizza. We have never gotten ill from this location and feel comfortable eating here. For extra calories and enjoyment, get the gluten free chocolate chip pizookie. It's TOO good.

    GF menu and staff say they mark tickets GF allergen if you ask them. I always ask the manager to get involved in hotside operations, to ensure busy staff are not overlooking GF processes. Staff and managers are always GF friendly. Our family has not had any problems with GF cross contamination here. Well done!

    They always take such great care of me when I come here! I eat here A LOT and I think I've only gotten sick once, which is what sometimes happens when you go out to eat at a place like this. This was when they were relatively new though. Ever since I've been back they always make sure everything is safe. Recently the manager gave my fiancé and I free pizookies because it was taking a long time and they wanted to ensure they were prepared safely for us :) the only downside is there is very limited food options if you don't like getting the same thing, but I always get pizza and a pizookie!

    So glad to find a new gluten-free option in Tallahassee. They understand how to prevent cross contamination. The tomato bisque made for a great starter. For the entree, the balsamic glazed chicken is amazingly tender & tasty. I substituted the mashed potatoes for a baked potato. My friend had the GF Hawaiian pizza which was one of the better GF crusts we've had. We shared the pizookie which is a warm GF chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream on top. I will definitely be back.

    BJ's misses the boat. They give lip service to having gluten-free food, but they only have a few token choices, they are sloppy with cross-contamination and corporate just doesn't care to do gluten-free recipes even when it's easy. They do have a good (one flavor) gluten-free pizza and a good (one flavor) gluten-free cookie. Everything else that is gluten-free tends to cluster at the highest price points on the menu. Even their potato skins are cross-contaminated because they can't be bothered with a separate fryer. This is not the best choice. I'd rather they just didn't advertise gluten-free than do such a half-assed job.

    A pretty bad experience! I will not set foot inside one of your restaurants again. It is very difficult for me to eat out because of my celiac disease. When I find a restaurant that already has a gluten free menu, I expect the wait staff and kitchen to understand what that means! My waiter was nice enough and did note the my order should be gluten free. HOWEVER, the kitchen plopped fried onion rings on top of my dish.(Balsamic chicken breast on field greens, no potatoes or onion rings. A different server brought the dish to my table. I pointed out the problem and he didn't know what I was a talking about. He took the plate away and said he'd find my wait person. We had already waited beyond a reasonable amount of time for our orders (3 of us). Now I had to wait about 10 minutes for the wait person to come back to the table so I could explain the problem. He said he'd get a new plate right away. It took another 15 minutes. My friends accompanying me were done with their meal by now and I wasn't served yet. Finally the meal comes. I started to cut the chicken breast and could not cut through. It was very tough and dry. It needed a steak knife. I tasted it anyway. It was horrible!!! Dry, tough, extremely salty and tasted very bad. Obviously NOT fresh chicken. Or they microwaved it to death. I couldn't eat it. I had the waiter remove the item from the check. Paid the bill for my friends meal. I left starving. Absolutely horrible and demeaning experience.
