    I've eaten here many times with very few problems but suffered from cc last visit. For the most part, they are very knowledgable & accommodating. I love their chopped chicken salad.

    Allergen list said I could have the shrimp cocktail & sauce but I knew 20 min into my meal, I was in big trouble. Not just a cc but I was given gluten! Totally ruined our date & hubby had to order the rest of his meal to go. I was looking forward to trying the gf cheesecake. I'm in a lot of pain to the point of not being able to sleep. Contacting them very soon!

    Wow! Options galore! Even several breakfast offerings. Very accommodating, knowledgable & caring staff. Everything was perfect from start to finish & I left with a full, happy tummy & a smile on my face. No CC issues either. They have completely won me over.

    3rd time not a charm. Tried hard to like this place but got sick all but my 1st visit. CC issues both times so Celiacs beware. The crust was stale this time also. Servers friendly but all aren't knowledgable. When I asked ours if a particular sauce had gluten in it she said "no I'm pretty sure there's no bread in there". She also felt the need to tell me not to share forks with other members of my family. Hmmmmm

    If you're looking for a formal dining experience with a touch of class, this is your place. Helpful, friendly & very knowledgable. GF items are specified in menu. I chose the Wild-Caught Chilean Salmon which was served in a savory broth. Delish! My formal restaurant of choice when in the area.

    Scary! Opened silverware, BIG bread crumb on fork. When ordering, specified "gluten allergy" & server said "so u want us to go easy on everything?" Really. Talked to manager abt apparent ignorance, crumb on fork & stuff floating in my water. They brought another glass w matter floating in it. Poorly managed, untaught staff & less than ideal conditions. Worst restaurant in the 2 yrs since being diagnosed w CD. Too early to tell if they glutened me but need I say more?

    What can I say but Perfection! Many gf choices here & they brought me gf bread before my meal. That's never happened before! I chose the crispy potato pizza which was uniquely different. Gr8 crust. Fast service for a busy Sat night. Easy access to interstate. This will def be my restaurant of choice when visiting N Columbus.

    Twice visited & ordered hamburger in bowl. 1st time, grill guy ws put off when I asked him to redo my burger w a clean spatula bc he hd used the one he was flipping cheese w. Btw, 5guys cheese DOES contain gluten. 2nd time, they remembered me & this grill guy was on top of things. Gr8 attitude! However, the fry guy forgot to change his gloves aft handling burgers. They r trying. Dedicated fryer so I always enjoy their fries.

    1st time at a Shane's. Casual atmosphere, order then seat urself fare. The cashier wasn't knowledgable so I asked for the manager who was. Pulled pork w honey BBQ sauce was incredible. Portions cd b bigger. Overall, a good exp wo any ill effects. NOTE: u must request NO TOAST when ordering.

    Extremely knowledgable abt GF & CC. The manager came out & personally took my order. Tried the Thai Red Curry w Chicken & have to say it was probably the best I've ever eaten.

    The chef came to our table to discuss my options w me. Sauces here are prepared GF & they can make most dishes by substituting corn pasta. Gr8 service, very knowledgable staff, incredible food. I love this place!

    A girl's got to have chocolate! We stepped into this tempting downtown store bc my husband loves homemade fudge. I figured there would be nothing for me but was pleasantly surprised when I was directed to a small table w prepackaged specialty dark GF & DF chocolates. Expensive but it satisfied my craving & didn't make me sick at all. HAPPY!

    Great outdoor waterfront dining with a good selection of GF choices. I ordered the turkey club special w a GF bun & requested just a couple things taken off. What I got was turkey lunch meat & lettuce slapped into a bun. Our waiter apologized & was very gracious, allowing me to change my order to a hamburger w GF bun. It was huge & scrumptious! I will come back when in the area.

    Incredible! Excellent service, knowledgable staff & a beautiful view. They have many choices for gluten & dairy free & an amazing dark chocolate cake w raspberry sauce. Everything was absolutely delicious. If I could, I would give Pipers 10 stars. When in the area, this will be my restaurant of choice.

    Being GF & DF, I was pleasantly surprised at my choice of dining options. I ordered the California Turkey Club wo the avocado condiment & had fresh avocado added instead. The GF buns were so full of scrumptious filling but well worth the wrestling match. Mmmmm! Awesome service & very knowledgable & accommodating. I will def return.

    Gr8 attitude & very willing to accommodate. Having CD, I have to be very careful so I actually stand where I can watch them prepare my food. Except for the grill guy using the same spatula they use to flip cheese for the burgers & accidentally putting my families burgers in the same bag as the fries, everything has been gr8. I kindly bring it to their attn whenever I see them mess up & they always offer to re-do. I love this place!

    Having CD I specifically asked the server if they had a GF menu. Bc he didn't know he went to ask & returned with a very disappointing response ...the head chef says no, we do not! I was with friends & we were celebrating someone's BD, so this was very awkward to say the least. So I ordered a salad wo croutons. When I inquired abt GF salad dressing, again... They had no knowledge if their SD was GF. Plain salad, no dressing for me! It wasn't until we were almost ready to leave that a manager came to see if our dining experience was enjoyable. When I explained my frustration, he apologized & explained that I had been misinformed. He even offered to store my personal SD in the kitchen next time I visited so I would always have a nice salad. This experience was very awkward & frustrating. I will not be back.
