    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.

    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.

    Burton's is great! They have a comprehensive gluten sensitive menu with a lot of great options plus many of the failure specials are made gluten sensitive friendly. They also have an excellent kids menu with lots of fruit and veggie choices for sides. They are a "from scratch"kitchen and are able to accommodate food allergies and sensitivities. Staff is excellent too!

    Boyfriend had swordfish risotto and I had a steak sandwich. Meal was good but the dessert is where it's at!! We had the chocolate torte with raspberry sauce and ice cream and also the pecan praline tart (?) which was warmed and deliciously smothered in caramel, served with ice cream. We would go back for the dessert alone!

    The only place that has ever asked if we had allergen issues when we walked in the door. They make it their business to take good care of those sensitive to gluten as well as other allergens. They have a great gluten free menu with lots of options. This may be the best gluten free restaurant ever.

    Totally wonderful! the GF menu is large and everything at our table was great. I had a view of the kitchen and saw a chef remove a plate that had just been put up for service. He called another chef over and the dish was reworked. I was impressed by that. All GF meals are served on square plates so not a problem identifying your order from a nonGF at your table. This is a GEM.

    I had a great experience at Burton's. The owner of the chain has celiac disease and one of the other executives has a shrimp allergy. They are well versed in cross-contact and will answer any of your questions, so you can decide if you feel comfortable eating there. The restaurant also has a dedicated fryer. The french fries were one of my favorite parts of the meal! At the table next to us, we overheard the ladies surprised to find out that their dessert (using GF flours and all) was gluten free. While there is gluten in the kitchen, they do prepare many menu items that would naturally have gluten without it, so there are many options for those with celiac disease. I would definitely dine here again. Full Review: http://gflife247.com/2014/11/28/burtons-grill/

    Absolutely amazing! Right off the waitress asked our table about any food intolerances, and upon telling her my gluten intolerance she went and got a modified gluten-sfree menu that was very helpful with knowing what I could get (no guessing what was and was not gluten free, which was nice, especially since I'm somewhat new at this). Also, my dish was incredible with sophisticated but delicious flavors. Definitely recommend to anyone with a food intolerance that want truly remarkable food and a great experience!

    Loved Burtons Grill. Visited with family on July 5th, food was awesome, wait staff very knowledgeable of gluten free and helping me choose my meal. Very surprised to learn two in our group ( who do not require gluten free) but their meals were gluten free so I could taste the meals. The two family members had no complaints with their meals. Great experience, would recommend to others and have via Facebook.

The establishment is nice and looks upscale, but we were wearing jeans and nice sweatshirts and were still treated very well. If you are gluten free this restaurant is a must! We will be back!

    I'll give then another try because the gluten free menu was impressive the one time we ate there, but they clearly don't want your business if you 1) don't have a reservation and 2) aren't dressed to impress the 17-year-olds at the hostess station. Promising, if you don't mind attitude. 6/25 service was much better. Impressive knowledge & accommodation for GF & other allergies. I do find them to be overpriced ($15 for a burger!?!) but the attitude isn't as pronounced. Totally safe and solid dining, but don't be misled by the name if you're expecting casual dining...the prices & attire indicate finer dining than the admittedly GF sensitive menu offers.

    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 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

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.

Manager delivered our food and verified it was GF (and dairy free for us as well). We had the short ribs with fries and the ribeye steak. Plan to get the GF fish tacos next time. The GF and DF rosemary focaccia was worth the trip just by itself. We joined the free member club to get $25 for every $300 spent because we'll be eating there very often.
