    Great place if you are not GF. No dedicated menu and very little that is safe to eat.

    Gluten free menu? Where? Drink menu only.

    I love HopCat from my pre-gf days, but they have next to nothing that's actually gf now. Chili and salads, that's about it. Fried items have contamination issues (including taco shells). They do have ciders, meads, and liquor.

    We were here this past weekend and here's what we encountered. Gluten Free menu? No. Staff knowledgable about gluten allergies? Absolutely. They went through the regular menu and explained to us what would and would not be safe, and why. That being said, the only thing left that we felt was safe to eat were the salads. Even the Fricken Chicken Nachos contained tortillas that were fried in the same oil used for everything. A little disappointing, because with the investment in some GF buns and GF pasta, several more dishes could've been made available to people with gluten issues. The list of GF drinks was fairly extensive, except that the Virtue Ciders were all gone, and we were left with one cider and a mead (we sat down to eat at 8 pm on a Saturday night). If we'd been there earlier though, we probably wouldn't have had that problem. With a few changes, I think this place could be great for those of us with Celiac, but as it stands, I wouldn't recommend unless you just want a salad.

    Menu is updated very frequently so I always know if they have made any changes to menu items that wont be gluten free any longer or new additions that are! Usually they have all three Greens, but theirs is more expensive than other bars in GR that offer Greens as well (by around 3$)
