    The manager Jerry was wonderful! Great food and no gluten! We are very sensitive to even the slightest cross contamination. They were able to accommodate a soy allergy as well.

    I am so thrilled that Eat'n Park is awesome about gluten allergies. As Roxanna mentioned, they take special care in preparing food for those with allergies separately and it is just as delicious as the non-GF food I remember having here in the past. And yes! The buns are awesome and you can buy them in house to bring home because they are made specifically for Eat'n Park. As soon as I ordered my burger with a GF bun and home fries instead of French fries, our waitress asked if I had an allergy and made a special note of it when I confirmed that I did have one. She took care in keeping my food separate from anything with gluten from the point it left the grill to the table. While my meal did come out well before my dining partner's, I appreciated the extra care that Eat'n Park takes in making sure that my meal will not only be delicious but the gluten-free meal I ordered.

    I am always anxious to interrogate restaurants when they claim they are gluten free or celiac friendly, Between my husband and I we ask for tours of kitchens, talk to cooks,and read ingredient labels on their prepackaged cooking ingredients. Most of the time the food (meats and veggies) are fine and preparation is key, and usually they offer some sort of gluten free bread or bun for a fee, (usually gross) but its nice they try right? Well Eat,n Park in PA specifically lists Celiac disease on their menu, they change gloves, clean the grill completely, use different utensils (ones color coded separate for allergen cooking) and the menu has an entire section just for celiacs that is listed by breakfast, lunch and dinner. I like all of this but expected mediocre tasting food. The burger arrived, thick, juicy and dripping with cheese and bacon. The bun (my usual nemesis) I thought I simply would use as a handle to eat the burger. My first bite was divine, the bread was so soft, doughy, and held together wonderfully and didn't overshadow the juicy burger with the usual bitterness of gluten free bread. I loved it so much I asked the manager to bring out the label (he did). If you are ever in PA and would love to eat out with your family and enjoy your meal as much as you once did, go to EAT'N PARK!!! Salad bard was my side as their fryer isn't safe for fries considering they also fry breaded items in it, so they do not confidently offer it as safe.

    looks like a nicer version of a diner like Denny's/Big Boy. similar options of dishes, but a section on the menu showing what is GF. the options didn't work for us so we went across the street. we didn't actually eat here but can't leave this review without a rating, so ignore the rating we left.

    The staff do not understand gluten. They will serve you a salad with never-mentioned bread visibly on it, even if you explain your situation (celiac, in my case). But most gluten-free items truly are gluten-free

    Ordinary. There was an unpleasant problem with the food on my plate. The staff and manager were very accommodating about replacing my breakfast and not charging for it. However, I was left with the impression that "these things will happen" and it shouldn't have happened.

    Was in Pennsylvania for a family reunion and researched restaurants that offer gluten free options. I read the previous reviews for this restaurant so my family and I decided to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised that the gluten free menu items were on their regular menu! I ordered the angus burger and was so glad that the bun was so fresh and soft as some other experiences I have had at other restaurants, the bun was really hard. This was by far one of the best burgers I have ever had. This is a great place to eat if you need to stay away from gluten!

    Asked about gluten free menu and host was totally knowledgeable. Sat me with a waitress that he said "really knew her stuff" too. She did. Asked about cross contamination and she explained their flagging mechanism for allergies in the cooking area. Menu options aren't amazing, but not bad either.

    Much like the other reviewers have said, I agree that this particular location is average at best. I went inside to place a takeout order (gluten free chargrilled chicken salad without fries) and while I was waiting, I got to spend roughly 15 minutes watching hostesses complain and talk to each other and a pretty unfriendly woman who I'm pretty sure was the manager on the phone with what sounded like a customer who had just left. One positive thing is that my server Maureen was knowledgable about what gluten free meant. She even mentioned that she did not include any bread with my salad because I ordered off the GF menu. Props to her for taking that extra step. My order came correct with plenty of dressing; however, the lettuce was slightly warm and the chicken lukewarm. It was OK, but nothing special. Next time I'd probably try the location near Pittsburgh Mills. I wasn't super impressed here.

    You can't trust the gluten free menu one hundred percent. You can't have anything fried because they use a common fryer. Chili wasn't bad, very beany reminds me of Wendy's chili. I got a black angus cheeseburger with bacon. It was kind of blah, meat,cheese,bacon, no condiments. They offer a gluten free bun for 75 cents extra. I went without. Staff seemed very contentious but not overly trained. Some of the gluten free dinners come with rolls but they don't always say order without.

    The food is typical of Eat & Park; however, the service was stellar. As a gluten free diner, I was impressed with the knowledge and conscientiousness of our server George. He took great care of my meal (grilled chicken salad without fries) and even picked up on my gluten sensitivity after seeing me order off the gluten friendly menu and not touch any of the buns or fried appetizers that the rest of my party had ordered. Thanks, George and Eat & Park, for a safe and enjoyable dinner!

    While the menu is a little limited (they don't have a gf fryer), the staff is very knowledgeable about cross contamination and what options are celiac safe. Even if you get a server who is new and doesn't totally understand celiac disease, they will either bring a manager over to talk to you or be honest about it, and they usually ask a lot of questions and try to educate themselves. I have eaten there many times and never got sick.

    I'd never heard of Eat'n Park before FMGF steered us here, but this is my new must stop when driving along 70. The celiac-friendly items are in a small listing in the middle of the menu. Waitress was very knowledgeable and super sweet, all of the staff were great. I had a burger on a GF bun and it was pretty decent. I just wish they had GF pie! The dessert options are pretty limited because of cross contamination concerns with ice cream.

    My celiac (and vegetarian) kids like to order the breakfast scramblers (scrambled egg and cheese on a GF bun) with breakfast potatoes. It usually takes longer when we order this; a server told me it's because they have to clean the grill before making GF items. My kids love their GF buns, which you can buy by the half dozen at the checkout; unfortunately they are not cheap. One server told me that a second server is required to bring out GF meals if there is a gluten allergy. I noticed that they don't always do this though. The staff is generally knowledgeable. They sometimes ask if my kids want a cookie after their meal. They also have apples so it's not a big deal. Recently, I saw a poster behind the hostess stand announcing celiac awareness month.

    The company is making an effort with a gluten free menu and rolls. They may have not, however, made enough of an effort to train their staff. Told server we were a celiac disease family (trying not to stigmatize my son who is the only one affected). She brought my daughter's fish breaded. When I reminded her, she did offer to fix. Then five minutes later, she asked if she could bring my children cookies. They do not have gluten free cookies, so this failure to recall our dietary restriction was both silly and unnecessarily disappointing to my children. May just be this one server, so we will try again with cautious optimism.
