    Not that I'm a food snob, but at Friday's and similar restaurants I really just want a burger. TGIFridays has a GF bun for their burgers. It tastes good and doesn't fall apart. That's all I really want.

    They do have a GF menu, but it's very limited. I wish there were more options!

    I called in advance and ask if they had a gluten free menu, and I was told they had a pretty good sized menu. When I got there, I was given an ALLERGEN menu which had a good amount of selections for other allergies, but only THREE options for GF...Two steaks ans a salad....Salad was good, but not at all happy with the selection :(

    I usually don't go here, but met a friend for a drink. She wanted an appetizer, but since I'm GF It looked like I couldn't eat anything. The bartender asked what was wrong & as I told him my food allergy he quickly brought out an allergen menu. It was pretty short but I'm glad they even had options! Very courteous and helpful staff.

    This is an airport chain restaurant so I didn't expect a whole lot but I found a friendly greeting and a friendly waitress. I also found a decent GF menu and no problems with my order. The GF bun used here with the turkey burger was better than most. All in all a very good airport experience for some one with a GF diet.

    Knowledgeable and helpful staff. They allowed substitutions on the kids' menu without extra charge for our son who has celiac. Waitress was able to answer all of our questions without having to double check - she knew what sides were safe and which were not. Good experience and tasty food options.

    Good food. Waiter handled our table well with Soy and Gluten issues. He neglected to mention at any time during our questioning, repeat returns to the table with answers, etc, that there are GF buns available for the burgers. No where on the 'gluten sensitive' menu does it say there are gluten free buns available. Needless to say, I freaked out when my gf burger arrived on a bun. Celiac friendly.

    I have celiacs and the past two times I have gotten sick after eating the burgers here. They use gluten free buns but are not careful with cross contamination. I will not be returning to this location and will stick with restaurants that are more careful.

    We have eaten here for years, but now with my Celiac diagnosis I had many questions about the GF menu. Manager was nice, but clueless. GF menu serves Ghirardelli chocolate sauce... All my research and good friends with CD have said it is not GF. When I mentioned it, his answer was "it must be, it's on the menu." Made me seriously doubt the rest of the items on the menu like their GF Caesar salad.

    While I did receive and order from the gluten sensitive menu, my server still brought my side salad out with croutons on it. I don't think he was particularly knowledgable about gluten, so you may have to over-communicate your needs. My actual dinner entree was fine. Service was slow despite the restaurant being fairly empty.

    I've gone here many times and have gotten the sizzling chicken and shrimp and was happy with the service. However on one occasion I decided to get a salad, I informed the waiter that Im gluten free Celiac and that I cannot eat the croutons. He brought out the salad everything looked fine until I took a bite....there were croutons hidden under the salad, lets just say I was very very angry. The manger eventually came over and said there was a mix up with someone else's salad and apologized. An apology is not enough for me, knowing how much pain ill be in later. You can't make mistakes like that with celiac's and im very disappointed. If you do go there get the slizzing chicken and shrimp not a salad

    Absolute worst dining experience since being diagnosed with Celiac. Ordered a GF burger, when it was delivered I thought it looked too "normal." Asked if it was the gluten free burger, "yes." Assumed I was overthinking it and that the staff would know better than I would. Wrong. Ate half the burger before realizing it was NOT GF. Thanks TGI Fridays for poisoning me. The servers excuse was "well, honestly I have no idea what gluten is. I'm not sure what makes the gluten free different to the regular." When I told her she had essentially poisoned me? "I'll have them make you another burger." Complete lack of knowledge and training, and definite lack of tact and compassion. Unfortunately, even the kitchen manager didn't seem too knowledgable. Continuously questioned me on "so when will you get sick?" Have had great experiences at other TGI's but this one is awful.

    The food from the gluten sensitive menu was good. They even have gf buns and my celiac son had no issues (we went out with a large group to celebrate the life of a loved one that just passed, thus my house hold was limited to where we ate). They do specify that they cannot guarantee gf, but we had no residual reactions so they did well this visit. It was great to have a burger with bread and not bun less!

    Gfree menu is not huge, but is very good. They have a chicken dish with cheese on it that comes to table sizzling on iron skillet and tastes amazing. I try not to eat dairy, so I will get their steak and bakesd potato and bring my own earth balance substitute. You can get gfree beer as well

    Do not eat here if you have Celiac disease. I ordered a gluten free burger and my friend ordered a regular burger. My bun was the same as his!! It was absolutely not gluten free. The manager said sorry but she totally did not understand the danger of this. Don't go here.

    Has a handful of options marked on menu and they have a separate GF menu.I got a mild upset stomach after eating the strawberry balsamic salad but I can't know if it was gluten or just something else. It's probably safer to avoid the grilled chicken unless they can discuss an alternative cooking method. They offer gluten free bread but I didn't try it.

    ** Updated: returned based on last visit. i guess our first visit was a fluke unfortunately. Don't bother going if you have kids that have limited options. I going to give them a positive rating. I was happy to learn of the new "gluten sensitive menu". It is also clear that the staff is still new to this concept. The server actually told me corn syrup had gluten, so I did have to correct her. I think with more training, they will get better educated staff but it's a positive start. We waited a long time for our food only to be told they were out of GF hamburger buns, which they suddenly found more of. It is a rough start, but I appreciate the efforts and hope they continue to improve. We will return!
