    Watch your order there. They brought me a salad that looked too good to be true and it was. Luckily I asked first as the gluten version would have made me very sick.

    Seriously the best place! Our server was amazing, knew about crosscontamination, celiac, allergies, everything. The bread is DELICIOUS, best gluten free bread I've had, by Gilligan's Foods. He even gave us a couple to take home. Amazing food, service, and atmosphere.

    Well it may be GF friendly BUT my husband and I ordered from the GF menu and get had an reaction. He missed 2 days of work. I complained, and Erik the regional manager personally delivered a $100 gift certificate which was nice of him but still bit weary of giving it another try to be honest.

    Awesome! Best GF restaurant I have been to. The whole staff is very knowledgeable about GF and good allergies. They have a great GF menu. They have delicious GF bread. If you ask they will changeout the fryer oil and you can have fries cooked in fresh gf oil. They take food allergies and gf very seriously.

    We just ate there tonight... amazing enough to motivate me to sit down and review them immediately! We were given fresh and hot gluten free bread and dipping oil as soon as we identified ourselves as gluten free. The gluten free menu is amazing and contains more options that I have ever seen at a restaurant.. we all split the Salmon, the Rosemary Scallops, Chicken Quesadilla (yes- gluten free!), and a delicious grapefruit sorbet. It was amazing- my six year old even had a hamburger on a gluten free bun and was beyond thrilled. The prices were reasonable and the food was simply beyond compare!!!!!!!!!!

    Ordered gluten free macaroni and cheese. The pasta was tough to chew and clearly microwaved, and the cheese was just a piece of melted American cheese slapped on top. The bread was good, but also very obviously microwaved.

    We ate here last night and the food and service were terrific. They have a huge and very impressive GF menu. Our server noticed immediately that I was looking at the GF menu and asked me if I wanted a GF roll. She brought out a delicious and very soft onion roll. I would definitely go back and recommend this place.

    On 10.3.15, I ordered the Gluten free green machine pesto pasta to go. While my meal was labeled gf and with my first name, within an hour of eating, I was violently ill with obvious gluten poisoning. It became so bad, I passed out and my husband called 911. I was in the ER for hours as they attempted to control my symptoms and rehydrate. The next day, weak but functioning, I called and described my meal. Both the chef and the manager confirmed that the gf pasta should have been a penne style, while what I ate was a curly cavatapi (sp?) full of gluten. They sent me $75 gift card, as if I would ever trust them again. Not to mention that it barely covered the cost of our meal, to say nothing of copays for ER and ambulance ride. No one ever followed up with me, either to discuss how we can put checks and balances in place so this never happens to anyone else. Appalling. Please do not take your life into your hands by eating here.

    The caramelized onion roll is really good, but I wouldn't go there for anything else. The fries are not GF, and the garlic mashed potatoes that I had to eat instead tasted like they came out of a box. Definitely not one of my best gluten-free experiences. I definitely will not be going back.

    8/9/15 they have added GF Mac and cheese to kids menu and GF carrot cake to dessert options. 9/21/13 We've had takeout and ate at the restaurant at least a dozen times over the past year and we've had mixed experiences (missing items from takeout) but I'll bump up my rating because they appear to be improving. 10/25/12 GF rolls, separate GF menu. Not much for GF dessert except sorbet. Not much for my daughter except a burger (on GF bun). Waitress wouldn't bring out Hoodsie for her because she thought it was not GF (but it is according to Hood). 3 stars for a family 4 if you go w/o kids.

    We stopped here for lunch while traveling. They have a full gf menu which they automatically give to every table. They have one of the tastiest gf rolls I've ever had, from a gf bakery in Boston (La Marca and Sons). I had the Vietnamese Salmon--grilled fillet of salmon cooked to order, citrus-infused broth, rice noodles, and crisp steamed vegetables. Very tasty! The wait staff is wonderful as well. Highly recommended.

    The Gfree bread and garlic/cheese olive oil dip is such a treat and makes me sooo happy. They have a pretty large gluten free menu. The Thai Lettuce Chicken Wraps for an appetizer are light and healthy. I sometimes have them as my meal. Jambalaya is the perfect amount of spicy. Cobb salad is decent. Chicken piccata is a creamy pasta dish that is great in fall / winter months. I have never had a bad meal or experience here.
