    Although the place was busy and nice, in terms of being allergy friendly, I'd have to say not so much. My son has wheat and egg allergy. I remembered the grilled chicken being gluten free and egg free (i sw it on their website a week back) so I ordered that for him.just to double check I asked the person at the register... he did not know but went to find out (very nice about it)... He came back saying that they had a nutritional pamphlet and that was the best they could do to answer my question. I gave them an extra star bc I should have just used my smart phone to look at their online gluten free menu but was stupid and didn't double check. Luckily, I wasn't wrong and ordered the correct food for my son, however, I believe there was cross contamination because my son ended up on hives/eczema flare up several hours later...

    Our first time. Pleasant atmosphere and great service. Waitress made note of my son's allergies the minute we mentioned it. I've never felt so worry-free eating out with my son before. The waitress was knowledgeable and if she want sure, she made sure to check for us. I didn't notice any allergic reactions - unfortunately my son's reactions are delayed so they are hard to pick up on. They did have a gf menu (with a kids menu section) and gf bread that was served while we ate the regular bread - I thought the gf bread tasted pretty good. The kid's menu also came with ice cream for dessert. It was gf & ef. Only four stars since it was our first time and we'll just have to keep trying to find out if my son's allergies are ok with it.
