    A pretty good menu selection. Staff was friendly and the owner even came to say hello. Finding a GF meal is sometimes hard and very frustrating. This place makes you feel like you're eating what "normal" people eat ;). I will go here again. The food was so yummy.

    While I was so thrilled with the full GF menu & including a GF roll, the quality of the food and environment wasn't my favorite. The salmon was quite fishy, the ribs tasted "off," and it just wasn't quite the quality I expected for dinner. From a gluten perspective, however, they did a good job.

    It looks like they are no longer open for breakfast. We showed up at 9:00a.m. on Friday and their posted hours on the door say they open at 11:00 a.m. Might stop back for dinner, but will call first.

    Before we even moved to Williamsburg, this was my favorite restaurant. Hands down, they model what a real GF-friendly place should be. Delicious food, knowledgable staff, and completely amazing with wide variety of selections.

    Best deal for gluten free in town. They really care and they know what they're doing. They also bring hot gluten free rolls to the table to start the meal. Oh, and the food is delicious besides all that. Just not crazy about the whole political themed dining experience, especially when you kinda get the idea that the owners are staunch republicans.

    BBQ ribs were amazing. Dessert (brownie and ice cream) was delicious. They even had Bards Tale beer. Best GF meal I've had in a long time. Call ahead and get priority seating to save time as this is a very popular restaurant.

    We had an awesome experience here. We went for dinner and loved it so much that we went back for the gluten free french toast the next morning. (french toast is only served on Saturday & Sundays)

    I found this restaurant via this app. I'm so glad I did! Upon request I was given a gluten-free menu. It is very difficult to find a gluten-free menu with meal options that sre not prepackaged or "grilled". The options amazed me and I was pleased with my shrimp and grits. It was delicious!! My husband and kids ordered regular items from the menu & they all enjoyed their meals.

    By far the most allergy conscious restaurant I've been to since going gluten/dairy/corn free 10 months ago. My lunch was so amazing we went back for dinner. My husband, 7 year and 9 year old were also very pleased. Great atmosphere and wonderful staff. Eat in peace without wondering if your meal is safe:). Enjoy!!!

    Thanks to this App, we found this place! We stopped here for lunch and came back the next morning for breakfast. Really great. Quality food, nice GF options, and very accommodating. They offered to bake the kids "skinny fries" to avoid cooking in a shared fryer. Yum! GF bread comes from a bakery in Richmond. The French Toast was Delish! Service was great too.

    Great service, friendly and knowledgeable staff! I had the gluten free pasta, didn't have the chewy texture of most gluten free pastas and the description of the dish was SPOT ON. My companion agreed about hers, no surprises and excellent food. Great atmosphere, will be back when I'm in town again!

    I'm so sad I don't live in Williamsburg, because in 9 months of living GF I have never had such a great dining out experience. A GF roll to vein with, GF menu that is full of entrees, sandwiches, and desserts (that's right, more than just a couple salads!). Or server was sweet, and the manager who stopped by our table was gracious. I will return. Period.
