    Ate there twice. I am surprised with other reviews as in both occasions a manager came to me to reassure the chef knew of my celiac and the food was being prepared separately, changing gloves etc. The waiters were knowledgeable and explained me all GF options in the menu (some fish, all the steaks, so I was told). I had the coconut ginger fish first time and Duke's baked fish the second time. Both were very good. Full disclaimer: I do not show symptoms.

    The burger was ok but gluten free bun wasn't grilled or toasted and tasted like cardboard. Fries are NOT gluten free cause they are fried in with everything else. Was stuck with bland white rice. Service was great first time second time sat for 20 mins to order and another 20 for drinks/food. We just got up and left. The burger was tasty at least.

    I am only intolerant not celiac but I handled the Cajun chicken sandwich on gluten free bun without any issues. It was excellent.

    Had the sirloin and the Opah fish (Duke's style is only way to have it gf-baked with lemon-basil-garlic glaze). Both came with garlic mashed potatoes. Not many options for supper and prices were a bit higher here. The waitress, while understanding which items were gf, didn't realize the severity of cross contamination since she offered to serve us the dessert (which had a cookie crust) and told us we could just eat the middle out of the crust (obviously not a safe bet for someone with a gluten allergy). Overall food was good, just limited menu for dine-in supper (other items available if you walk in and eat at the bar area).

    I'll start by saying I am gluten intolerant but not celiac. We ate at Dukes several times and they were very accommodating! Burger, steak and wedge/steak salad, we're all great!

    I've eaten here many times and have never had a problem. Several gf options to choose from. The manager assures me each time I come that the kitchen prepares an area safe from cross-contamination before making my entree. They always seem to go above and beyond which is why I always return.

    The service was great and our waiter knew everything about gluten free on the menu (ask for luke when you go). I recommend the ribs or steak, the fish was good too. My family tried all gf things (besides dessert) and enjoyed them all. It is a great place if you have celiac disease or need to be careful about cross contamination. I recommend going here!

    So disappointed. The reviews looked great. In reality all chips (for nachos) and wings are cooked in same fryer with shared oil so although they're labeled GF they are Not. Hummus does have cheese so be careful for DF. For gf it's only served with cucumber. Laaaame. At least the manager did inform me about the fryer though.

    Great and knowledgeable staff. I had the BBQ burger which was on an Udi's GF Bun. The burger was dry and bun was not toasted. But for a celiac to eat a burger out and not get sick- that's pretty epic! My husband had nachos, they were GF and very good. I would go back again- plus they had Crispin cider, my fave!

    The food is really good but often times the staff needs to go ask questions. The nachos with pork are great. They are fried in the same fryer but first thing in morning. I am celiac and have not had any issues with them. They also have gluten free buns for sandwiches but the fries are not safe. Keep in mind they will charge you more for a side salad instead of fries. We have found that the service at the bar, if you can find a seat, is Usually much better than a table.

    WOW! Excellent service and outstanding food. Go for lunch vs dinner-best GF options. Server double checked order and ingredients and to be sure notified the manager who both oversaw our order and satisfaction. Absolutely outstanding experience!!!!!

    Quite a few gluten free selections. I had the seafood luau, which was delicious. The service was knowledgable and efficient.

    It was okay. The GF menu was disappointing and the wait time was very long after being seated. The staff was friendly, but limited options.

    I so wanted to rate this place highly. I have great pre-celiac memories here. Unfortunately the GF menu was a joke. It all was cross contaminated less one or two items. I was disappointed to say the least.

    Wonderful place with great service and very knowledgable. As a celiac I could not risk salad bar but those choosing to be gluten free have plenty of choices

    I'm GF and sugar free. The waitress went out of her way to make sure she was getting accurate info from the HEAD chef. Food was delicious., savoy and fast. I will come back again. Definitely worth the 10 minute wait!
