Great place for Gluten Free. So many options and they take it very seriously. They have a separate kitchen space too. Paleo Menu now too (June 2016)
It was good, but was disappointed after eating at a Burtons last year on our trip. Waitress said they changed the menu. Didn't seem to be as many GF options as before. No stuffed zucchini on the new menu. Had chicken artichoke Risoto and it was good.
Huge selection of GF and knowledgeable staff. Had a great meal.
gf df calamari!!! huge menu really fresh!!
Amazing food and service. Thank you. My favorite restaurant in Va Beach.
Favorite gf place hands down. I dream about the calamari and chocolate torte dessert
the best meal. we had the fried calamari and bang bang shrimp. I also had a cup of the she crab soup and the fish and chips dinner. I subbed the garlic parmesan chips for the plain fries. it was great. the breading is a corn meal / corn flour mix.
This place is a must while in Virginia Beach! Staff was very knowledgeable and hubby even had his own dinner roll! Very impressed!
They now have GF she-crab soup which I haven't had for 15 years. It was amazing.
Had fish and chips. Excellent. Haven't had those since been GF. Staff very knowledgeable on gluten free needs. Manager brings plate to you. GF food served on square plates so there is no confusion. Will go back.
The most AMAZING gf restaurant I have ever been to! I wish they had one back home. I go every time I visit Virginia beach. The staff is awesome as well!! Would highly recommend :)
My FAVORITE gluten free restaurant. They take it very seriously here. They have separate cook area so it's hard to have cross contamination. I love the fish and chips They have great menu and even have special gluten free events.
Gluten Free Utopia!! Finally bread served with dinner again and many choices such as fish & chips or delicious sandwiches. Fantabulous!
Options galore! Tito for Martinis, 1 true GF beer, beautiful setting, just awesome!
Amazing food, that's also gluten free. THANK YOU! Celiac approved.
I can't say enough good!!! Gluten free fried calamari, risotto, blue cheese chopped salad and chocolate torte!!!!!
AMAZING!! I can't tell you how happy I was to find this place on our vacation. The owner is celiac, they have a separate kitchen for allergies, they have a LAMINATED actual GF menu not a paper print off, and everyone knows about all sorts of allergies not just GF. I had restaurant french fries for the first time in a year and a half and loved every second. I only wish I didn't live four hours away. Definitely give this place a try!!!
This place is amazing. Do not miss it.
I loved this place! I just moved here not to long ago, and I tried this place during restaurant week and fell in love with it and so did my husband. We both got the gluten free cheese burger and fries and salad. It was so tasty!
I was visiting from out of town....the Food was great, Have the beer battered Fish...Super Yummy!
This restaurant has excellent service and a full GF menu, as well as GF beer and cider. The GF rolls are amazing. We had an amazing brunch this morning. If you call ahead a day or so, they will make a batch of gluten free pancakes just for you on Sunday morning.
Delicious battered fish!
If I could give it 6 stars, I would. Designated kitchen space and highly trained staff. We were told the owner's wife has celiac. These people know what they're doing. Even better, the food is the most awesome stuff ever!! We ended up going back 2 nights in a row. Even the kids begged to return. Best kids menu I've ever seen and only $7. If you don't go, you're missing out!
The food, service, atmosphere, and GF selections are excellent! The staff is very knowledgable of gluten and other food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities.
Love this place!!! They know how to do it right here. Can not say enough good about it!
The best place at VA beach to eat!! They were able to accommodate my whole GF family. It was amazing and the food was fabulous!
Great food and great service. Very large portions. They also carry a nice list of local beer (not gluten free of course).
They totally cater to celiacs and other food allergies!! They have a system that assures the customer they gave received the gluten free items. Our server Vivian was so helpful!!!! Plus the food is delicious!!! And their gluten free menu is LARGE!
Love this place!! Great GF menu. Didn't have to have the "pep talk" with anyone. They accommodated my entire GF family. My kids (7&9) have never had a dinner roll.
Best GF we could find in VA Beach. Excellent menu choices. Very knowledgable staff. Food is awesome. I even got a GF dinner roll while my husband got his. I can't say enough about how GF friendly Burton's is.
This was the most accommodating place I've ever been to! EXTENSIVE gf menu, extremely knowledge staff, AND all of the gf items cane on square plates (as opposed to round for non gf). Food was outstanding, and they had free gf bread before the meal and gave is some fresh pieces to take home when we left.
Best gluten free friendly meal we have had in a long time. Calamari was delicious. My husband was thrilled to find gluten free fish and chips. On the expensive side but if you are looking for a nice dinner with good food and great service I highly recommend it.
My tummy is happy! Loved the GF calamari, and the Mediterranean chicken was wonderful :) the creme brulee was also just prefect
So wonderful!! My sister, gf AND vegetarian, was thrilled to be handed a separate menu! They have a new deal as well, 1/2 price burgers Sunday-Thursday from 3-6. It was great and allowed our family of seven to keep from breaking the bank! :-)
Great menu and food. Very knowledgeable staff. Would highly recommend it!
They know gluten free for sure! Awesome fresh food too. Yummy gluten free rolls too. Update: March 2014 Still an awesome place to dine
We have had another excellent gluten free dining experience at Burton’s. This restaurant does not disappoint. Any other restaurant offering gluten free selections should aim for the standard set by this restaurant. This is the second time we have dined at Burton’s, and in a different location. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and the food is out of this world good! This visit I had some of the best gluten free pasta I have tasted so far. Keep up the good work Burton’s! You are light years ahead of the rest. Oh, and please open some restaurants in Pennsylvania.
Love their gf rolls. The butter upsets my stomach though. I love their calamari! I never thought I would have it again! Such a nice place :)
Best gluten free restaurant I have EVER IN MY ENTIRE LIFE been to! They have gf rolls! Definitely worth every penny.
I love this place!
Square plate is Gf, round is not, awesome service, extremely knowledgable wait staff, Fabulous menu with many options mainly fish, also chicken and beef, fried calamari, dedicated fryer for French fries, all delicious, upscale but kid friendly.
ok this is one of my favorite place's and one of the best for an educated staff! they use square plates fir gf meals versus round for non. High quality food. enjoy this one is really good. did I mention fried calamari? :)
This is my go-to gf restaurant. Their salmon piccata is on point!
Amazing! They take good care of you! Free gf roll as a starter. They have gf burger buns and quite a few tasty options.
Great restaurant! Most of their menu is naturally gluten free, they understand cross contamination, their fryers are not cross contaminated, and overall just very knowledgeable. Waitress said that the owner (or might have been manager, can't remember which one) has celiac disease. I highly recommend!
Great GF menu. This is the first place I have eaten at where they actually asked if we needed a GF menu before I asked for it. Great service.
You need to eat here if you are gluten free! Very knowledgeable. They even have gluten free bread.
My ultimate fav!! I have driven 2hrs just to have dinner here! They are very familiar with gluten free and offer items you cannot get anywhere else.
Very knowledgable staff and accommodating for the GF patron.
amazing bc experience.... dinner rolls and a burger on a bun!@
One of the best gf restaurants I've found. Lots of options (even calamari), and has a huge gf burger with a bun! Also caters to other food allergies, just ask! SO DELICIOUS!!!!!
Burtons is hands down the best place in the area for Gluten Free Food. Not only do they have a separate menu (with 95% of the items on the regular menu), they have a separate frylator, square plates only for GF, circle for normal, manager delivers food separately, delicious warm rolls, and great steak, seafood, etc... LOVE LOVE LOVE
Good food, great service, very knowledgeable & conscious of us Celiac's, loved their cheesecake & ancinni but only negative & it was a big one with my wife; it's a very noisy/loud dining room area, you to scream to talk to your partner, it's bad but...Food & service was good!
Words cannot describe how wonderful Burtons is about GF food. They have a great, varied GF menu, and they are incredibly diligent about getting it right. Servers won't even carry a GF dish at the same time as a non-GF dish! Burtons can even do most of its kids' menu GF. We have eaten there dozens of times and NEVER had an issue.
I've eaten at Burton's many times- the Mt Pleasant location as well as one in Massachusetts. Many gluten free options and I never worry about cross contamination here. They serve gluten free food on a different shape plate than gluten containing items; easy to spot the difference if you look. The food itself is solid- my favorite item on the whole menu is the fried calamari and hot pepper appetizer. It's hard to find fried gluten free food so I like to indulge on the rare occasion I happen upon any..... I've eaten lots of the entrees as well but would choose the calamari and a side salad over anything else. I like Burton's for my two celiac kids as well- their children's menu is called "B Choosey" and is all about giving young diners ample meal customization. Portions are very large and my kids get a kick out of being able to eat virtually anything on the menu- a true treat when dining out is often about what they "can't" eat.
GREAT knowledge of dietary needs! First thing the waiter asked when we sat down was if anyone had dietary allergies. Full gluten free menu full of great options. Not to mention, the food is delicious! As a Midwestern vacationer, I would highly recommend to all locals and tourists
HUGE gluten free menu! The first time I went I was debating between 4 options because everything looked so good. I even got an extra side. The buffalo chicken dip is delicious and not super hot, I get it every single time and for carry. The burgers are also delicious especially with bacon. So many sandwich options and the plates always look beautiful. At my location they have some device that they type in and it instantly sends back the orders so your food comes out really fast!!
Really good food. I didn't have any issues with cross contamination. The waitress made me feel very comfortable eating there. One of the owners has celiac disease.
Burtons Grill is the safest place to dine in Charlottesville for people who have Celiac Disease. The staff prepares food in a separate kitchen, uses dedicated fryers, and serves gluten-sensitive food on square plates. (All other food is served on round plates.) The menu is extensive and the service is always pleasant.
First thing the hostess asked, after how many people in our party, was if anyone had a gluten allergy or sensitivity. This started out our dining experience on the right foot! They have a full separate GF menu with appetizers, soups and main courses. Not just a couple choices! The server also asked first thing too about allergies. We ordered the GF calamari as an appetizer ...EXCELLENT! Highly recommend ordering! My main course was the breaded fish sandwich with fries, this was a messy sandwich and needed a little extra tarter, but it was great. The kids menu choices were a little pricey for what was provided. We arrived for our meal about 20 minutes before closing (since we had to find a gf place, of course). They were extremely accommodating and didn't give the impression that we were a hindrance which we knew we were. All of the staff was fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant!
I have celiac and have never had a problem dining here. The staff is incredibly kind and friendly and are very conscious of allergies, with the kitchen never failing to serve a delicious meal that is also safe to eat. My recommendation however is to stay very alert, if you are brought your order on a circle plate instead of a square, then there was a mix up and you should alert the server to it. Overall 10/10 I'm a Burton's regular and always enjoy the night's that I choose to eat here.
Delicious food that we keep coming back to, but I have experienced cross contamination. It's best to eat here at slower times. I've only ever gotten sick at popular times. Considering the lack of celiac friendly dining in Charlottesville, this is a good choice for lunch or dinner.
I was skeptical going in, but it was a fantastic experience. They really know their food, and what's better: they know their allergies. Most of their food is inherently gluten free and they are hyper aware of gluten as an allergen. They present a gluten free menu that I assumed was the real menu, because it had most of the food on it. Burger was phenomenal, probably the best I've ever had. Gluten free bun and the highest quality beef you could ask for. Great atmosphere and good service. Gluten free beers on tap, as well as ciders. Will visit again tl;dr - Great food, large selection, good atmosphere, good service, will visit again
Definitely know their gf food. The food was good, not great. Their fries are in a dedicated fryer, but were a little burnt. Had lots of dessert options, and we had the berry cheesecake. It was good, just not a traditional cheesecake and overly sweet. Overpriced as well.
had chicken sanbwich. The chicken was tough and dry. The sandwhich was flavorless and the fries were soggy.
The hostess asked about allergy issues right off the bat and let us know the whole kids' menu can be ordered gluten free. My picky daughter loved her chicken tenders and our food was great too. The staff was very aware. This is a great option for people with celiac and we will definitely be back often.
Great gf menu with many choices. They even make a gluten & dairy free risotto! My wife is very sensitive....we ate here twice with no issues. You will love this place!
amazing place. they cater to all allergies and are very knowledgeable.
Went there for graduation dinner. Awesome menu and very knowledgeable about celiac disease and how to handle food. First time I have eaten out without fear in a long time. Will be back.
This place knows how to do gluten free. The servers and Managers are very attentive and they have a great gluten free menu. The bread and herb butter is delicious. The calamari is so good. I enjoy getting the hamburger with fries and onion rings but other meals are also good as are the deserts. They also host gluten free dinners which are great. I just wish this restaurant was closer to my house but it is worth the drive.
I have had the exact same experience as everyone else. Very GF conscious and educated staff, great GF bread, the best GF pasta I have ever had. I had to ask the waitress if it was really GF, it was so good. She explained about the square plates meaning a GF meal. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars!! Love, love, love this place!!!
black bean burger was delicious. the restaurant is gluten free by default for all of their offerings. if you want pasta or bread they have gluten free options also
Such a huge GF menu I didn't know what to choose. Onion straws! Everything was delicious. I will be back and seeking other locations.
Have been here twice in the last month. This is my new favorite restaurant! Food and service was outstanding (thanks Cheryl!). Menu has large variety of food and is served by the manager on different shaped plates from the rest of my party. This easily keeps my food separate. It is so wonderful to have a good meal and to know I am not going to get sick.
Dedicated fryer, gluten free chicken fingers and fries, amazing dinner rolls, very knowledgable on Celiac. My son has an egg and tree nut allergy and they made him special egg free chicken tenders! What a treat! This place is beyond allergy friendly!
