    As long as you pay attention to what you're grabbing you're fine. I am super sensitive to gluten and dairy and had zero reaction. No pre made salads, honey mustard is fine, and ask about the soups first.

    This place is a giant salad bar. I happen to love it, but you will need to use your common sense. They label a lot of things for allergens but not everything. When I asked for the GF menu, I was given a printed out email and only a few items were listed. I still enjoy this place

    Like coming here a lot. Super clear about what is GF and vegetarian. It makes a Jew and someone with Celiac able to easily eat our fill.

    This is a mixed review. Where I go the severs will make a salad plate from closed food containers stored under the salad bar. They change gloves too. Some gf soup, chili, but workers repeatedly stir soups with a spatula, wipe it off, and then stir the next soup with the same spatula. After bringing this to the manager's attention again and again, the workers now take the soup to the back, and bring them back out stirred. Also, gluten free options, once listed online monthly, are listed too late (often half way through the month).

    recently they've added more gluten friendly items which include the soups, dressings are now all labeled clearly and they usually have one GF muffin option. bonus is their email coupons which make this a very affordable family meal.

    This NOT a place for a GF dinner. Stay away from the items labeled gluten free as a manager admitted using the same scoop to make the blueberry muffins as the GF muffins. If that is the case in one area, then I can only assume that it happens in other areas here. I will not ever be back. Celiacs need to be careful and not risk it.

    The amazing salad bar obviously has a lot of gluten free options..but I was very surprised to see that most, if not all of their dressings were also labeled 'gluten friendly' (even the house made ranch!!) which didn't make me or my daughter sick! all of their food is made from scratch every day. We really enjoy this restaurant

    I love Sweet Tomatoes, but as it is a buffet, you need to be careful. You can always get plenty of vegetables/salad, some type of bean or coleslaw salad, at least 1 soup is usually GF, plus baked and sweet potatoes. Occasionally they have GF muffins, but I am doubtful the staff changes gloves or uses dedicated equipment before handling, and I also don't trust the tongs that may have touched other muffins by other guests. Delicious and healthy offerings if you use caution.

    I don't care for this place. I had a question for the manager about the ingredients of something, and heard him making comments about how dumb I am to ask such stupid questions. He didn't realize I was in ear shot. If I want a mediocre salad I'll just make it at home.

    I was really excited to come here but once we did I was very sadly disappointed. The salad dressings were not labeled whether they were gf or not and when I asked, no one knew. The soups were also not labeled and they didn't know when asked about them. I don't think I'll be coming back due to the lack of care..

    I got quite sick after eating here. If you are pretty sensitive, beware. This is a pretty messy buffet and cross contamination is highly likely. Not to mention there wasn't a big gf selection.

    They had no idea about cross contact. They had a list of prepared salads on the bar that were GF, sitting right next to non GF salads. Did not feel confident enough to eat there.

    Your best gf options are salad, a couple of soups (often only the chili), and baked potatoes. Cross contamination is certainly a concern. They recently had gf muffins, which were tasty, but served in the same area as the gluten muffins, even using shared tongs. I do appreciate that Sweet Tomatoes is making an effort, and I love seeing them label more things as gf. I'd love to see more progress, though! I think most of the soups could be done gf if they really wanted to.

    Huge salad bar and great options! Koans broccoli madness is awesome. The Deep kettle chilli is gf too. They now have gf coconut muffins. And who can forget the soft served frozen yogurt that is also gluten-free!!! Before you go, look up "sweet tomatoes gluten-free" and the month โ€”you will find a list of gluten-free items for the month. Just make sure not to contaminate yourself and be cautious of gluten foods next to gluten-free foods.

    They don't have a dedicated gf menu but every month they have a gluten free muffin that changes. Some of the options are obvious. They do have a baked potato bar that's a safe bet.

    This place is always a go to spot for us, since it doesn't inconvenience our friends or family who don't follow our diet! Plus they offer great coupons if you join their mailing list, and are even offering a gluten free biscuit for the month of January!!! Hopefully they keep their gf options coming!

    I loved it before having celiac and still do - minus the mac 'n cheese and bread. They have a blog every month on thier website that tells you what is gluten free. Although not every monththey list thier GF dressings, there was alist in one of the months and most of them are. Thier chili is GF, though I've never had it. I just stick with my simple salad and baked potato.

    The salad bar is great but the selections are limited and not well marked. I asked what soups were gluten free and the young woman said all the soups were as I'm standing by the chicken noodle. She clearly was clueless. I later learned that the chili was.
