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.
One of the only restaurants where I've consistently gotten truly gluten free food, including fries! They have a dedicated fryer. I love their fish sandwich, so yummy! Also they always include a piece of gluten free bread when I do takeout.
Had a wonderful lunch! They had a number of great GF options. I had the firecracker shrimp and the fish tacos. It was a 1 1/2 hour ride there and it was worth it. Highly recommend!
always safe here as a celiac. TONS of menu options, all delicious. I am never dissapointed.
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!!!
fabulous food. large menu choices.
As others have said, the hostess asked if anyone in party had gluten allergies, didn't have to ask for g-free menu ourselves. Went for lunch after my wife had outpatient procedure since I took the day off. Seated right away, and a server who wasn't even ours, just assisting came over and explained the way g-free works at Burtons. Special square plates and told if it comes out on a plate not square don't eat it. They had calimari!! With cherry peppers!! Cooked perfectly!! Hadn't had that in over 5 yrs. also had max burger with fries cooked in special fryolater for g-free. Waitress and staff very attentive, wonderful meal. Will return soon.
Best GF restaurant that I've been to in CT by far!! Excellent service and very friendly staff.
My favorite gluten free place to eat! Always my first choice!! Amazing!!
Best gluten free menu around! Always my first choice for dinner!
Best restaurant I've ever been to! I'm still dreaming of the delicious food I got here with my husband! We can never find GF restaurants when we're traveling--they were just amazing. They do different shaped plates for GF and non-GF, bring out separate bread (the GF garlic bread was fantastic!), and I had a chicken lemon cream rissotto with pesto dish that was out of this world! Next trip through CT we will DEFINITELY be coming back! :)
Fantastic! The staff is well trained and they go out of their way to accommodate allergies. The even bring gf bread to your table and offer Tito's gf vodka as well. The food is always amazing and I'm pretty picky. If I'm going to pay to eat out it needs to be worth it and it never disappoints.
One of my all time gluten free favorites!!!
I had a great first experience here! The food was delicious and made so I could eat it! Staff is way more than willing to accommodate to restrictions/allergies! They offer gluten free bread from a local bakery in MA. They do have both a gluten free and vegetarian menu. Atmosphere is pretty neat too. I highly recommend checking this place out!
WOW! Not only was the food amazing, but the server was so helpful in explaining the gluten free options. It's not in the listing but they also have a dedicated gluten free fryer. It was the first time in two years that I've had clam chowder and it was amazing!
This was the best gf food expirence I've ever had . My son and daughter are severely allergic to gluten . The options were amazing and the food quality /service was exceptional . I would definetly make the hour drive just to eat here again
This place is INCREDIBLE!!! I have been here countless times and never have I been disappointed. I usually get the Maxx Burger because it is just so good. GF calamari appetizer is amazing, and the vanilla bean creme brûlée is unbelievable. Chocolate tort was delicious as well, coated with a thick ganache and drizzled with a raspberry or cherry syrup--I cannot remember which. I never worry about cross contamination; they all know their stuff very well! The GF food items come out on "square" plates (more like squares with rounded corners) to distinguish them as GF versus regular items which are served on circular plates. The menu is diverse and there are many options. As far as I can tell there isn't any up charge for items being GF, which is nice! I recommend signing up for the Burton's Loyalty card (free) and every 300 points ($300) you get $25 off. It helps a lot! The prices are higher than a place like Friendly's but to me it is well worth the price. I always feel like I'm getting a deal to eat such incredible food and have it be GF. Burton's is definitely my favorite restaurant, if you haven't checked it out yet hurry up and go!
Amazing celiac friendly options and no chance of cross contamination because of the seperate kitchen. Definitely my go to spot! Every server I've had here is great, which only adds to this establishment.
Love this place! Prices are the same for gluten free as regular menu items. Selection is excellent, food amazing & service is stellar.
Awesome place, if you're gluten free I highly recommend. Really friendly staff and delicious food!
I've been here twice since going Gluten Free due to health reasons. It was the first meal Id had in months that actually looked just like it's gluten filled counterpart. First off when you walk in they ask you if you would like a gluten free menu. They are very aware, and use separate fryers. Both times I got chicken sandwich on a GF buns and fries. Very good. One word of caution, however, was our waitress messed up and gave me a roll with dairy in it (I also have a dairy allergy). As always, even though they are very in-tune with gluten, if you have other allergies always double and triple check. I'm a little more limited due to my combo gluten-dairy avoidance, but if you just avoid gluten the gluten free menu had lots of great options!
Love this place! Have brought my two toddlers there several times and have had a great experience every time! Great gf kids menu, unbelievable and super delicious adult gf free menu! Gf dinner rolls, gf buns, separate fryer for fries - again, love this place. Risotto is amazing!
We went this past weekend. It is celiac awareness month, so they had some special dishes. I had one of the best gluten free chicken parmesan dinners! It rivaled any Non gluten free version I have ever eaten. Please put this on the regular menu!
Had the Chicken Piccata. Most flavorful gf meal to date! the gf rolls are so great I ordered a second helping. Bravo and THANK YOU from the bottom of my newly-gluten free heart!!
The food was awesome and the staff was great and very helpful.
Best food gf ever! Love the fish and chips! Dedicated fryer
I had the Mediterranian chicken for lunch with spinach and risotto. GF roll as well. Everything comes on square plates so they don't confuse with non-GF, which comes on round ones. Great meal.
I'll echo what other reviewers have said. Burton's is fantastic! The wife and I went for lunch. The atmosphere is great. The staff was super and the food was outstanding. I had the soup of the day southwest veggie and the barbecue chicken salad. The gluten free dinner roll really made it feel like a "real" meal. I agree... Burton's does GF right. 5 stars. We are already planning to take the whole family there for my birthday dinner.
This place is the best! Extremely gluten free friendly, lots of great items to choose from and simply delicious! I highly recommend going here!
Dedicated menus and plates to show gf so you know it's done right. Great food and staff very helpful.
I was traveling through the area and used the app to find this place... what a gem! My daughter and I were coming back from celiac camp in Rhode Island and decided to stay overnight nearby before heading home to Rochester. We decided to go out to dinner and the moment we walked into this place, we knew that it was going to be an exceptional place. They took our cell phone number and told us that we could go and window shop while we waited as the wait would be about 20 minutes. We went to this cute little jewelry store and made a purchase "while we waited" and before you knew it, we were seated. They have a wonderful GF menu with prices listed on it and the menu was filled with appetizers, dinners and even desserts! They brought out oven baked rolls with a garlic butter - FABO!! Where do you get GF rolls? Right here! So tastey! We felt like royalty and praised the waitress for the selection and the rolls. She let us know that the owner is Celiac as well and they have a separate prep area for GF! We ordered fried calamari - delicious and for dinner my daughter had the shrimp scampi with pasta and I had sword fish with hand cut french fries... everything was incredible, even dessert. We selected the vanilla creme brulee..... YUMMY! I can't wait until camp again next year so that we can treat ourselves to dinner here again! Thank you for such a great experience. http://site.burtonsgrill.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/GF-Lunch-July12-WEB.pdf
I refer to Burtons Grill in all of my reviews of other restaurants because Burtons does gluten free right. This approach has lead to repeat business and happy referrals to other diners both gluten-free and "normal". Burtons approach does not make me feel like a second-class citizen, like other restaurants do. I am at ease and not in fear of receiving food that will hurt me while eating at Burtons. Give it a try.
Many gluten-free options. I tried the ahi tuna burger. It was super delicious. It was like ceviche on a gluten-free bun. The fries were over seasoned and over salted, so I will ask them to go light on that in the future. Make sure that you emphasize gluten-free, because one day I did take out, and I am fairly certain that they gave me a regular bun by mistake. The service is really great, and the manager was awesome in responding to my concerns.
Fantastic gf menu. Great food and gf beer. I like how they put all the gf food on square plates and regular food on round plates. Puts me at ease. Try the gf calamari.
Very good food and three different gluten free beers. The owner is celiac and has created as gear gluten free menu as a result
This location is spot on and is always consistent. We frequent here and have become friendly with the staff and managers over time. I always get an amazing meal and the staff is educated on celiac and will accommodate. They even have an array of GF desserts! Highly recommend this location!
As soon as we came in they asked if anyone needed a gluten sensitive menu (awesome) and the waitress also asked immediately if anyone had an allergies. I had the tacos and fries from a dedicated fryer! Awesome. I have celiac.
We come here multiple times when we visit Charleston. Never been disappointed. So many great GF choices! We learned on this lay visit that the president of the company has Celiac's so they have been GF since the very beginning. They go above and beyond! The shrimp and lobster pasta is GF and amazing! The risottos are fabulous.
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!
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.
