    Very good burger (but no bun so bring your own). Their french fries are amazing. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. They had a fair amount of gluten free beer options as well.

    Dedicated fryer! That's great. I had a sunrise burger(bun free) with fries ( truffle Parmesan) Great fries- a touch more truffle would be nice Burger- not bad. The egg was a nice touch as was the bacon marmalade. I don't think it should be served with lettuce. It hides the subtle flavors of the marmalade. Plus it tasted a bit off. Not old, just not good. The brown ale (gf) was not bad. It def has sulfites as I had a reaction to it. But nothing terrible Service is very good

    While they do not have a dedicated gluten-free menu, this kitchen and staff were VERY well-versed in how to prepare things gluten-free and how to keep everything safe. French fries are fried in a dedicated fryer, the buns (non-gluten free) are toasted in a separate toaster, so they do not contaminate the hamburgers! While they do not offer gluten-free buns, I was just happy to be able to get a safe hamburger sans bun, or wrapped in lettuce, if I wanted. Or fries! But they had several other options as well - the menu indicates some items can be prepared to accommodate gluten free or other allergy requests. The wild mushroom risotto was delicious! (I added chicken! Yum!) The waitress we had said they take allergies and gluten-free very seriously. They did advise that ingredients can sometimes change, so to check w/ each visit. The risotto sauce had recently changed, so I did wait a bit while they checked for the ingredients on it. But the management, kitchen and wait staff were all pleasant and great to work with. We did call ahead and I asked some questions when I made a reservation (we had a large party), but most of my questions were answered again by our waitress who was just as knowledgeable. Will definitely visit again! 4-stars only because no dedicated GF menu.
