About Me


Never tested for Celiac... Stopped eating wheat... Stopped being sick. Definitive enough for me! Hubby went GF when he saw how much better I felt. We love to travel and try new foods. Being GF hasn't slowed us down!

    Salads and dressing were mostly all GF. I ordered the Savannah Salad which was listed in the GF menu - it came with blue cheese crumbles which are not technically GF (the blue is wheat mold, or so I've read). I've never had problems with blue cheese tho. The chili and most of the stuffed potatoes were GF. They didn't have a GF bread or offer lettuce wraps for the sandwiches. So it's just salad, chili or stuffed potatoes. They did have a GF menu, but didn't realize that they did. It was stuffed in with the nutritional info book that they handed me.

    Just another okay pizza place. The menu says it's a 10" crust, but I'd swear it seemed bigger. Two people could share this just fine. This is a pizza buffet chain, not very fancy. The crust is pre-made. It comes in one of those little metal plates that all of us GF people recognize. According to their website they have a whole procedure to keep the GF pizza safe from cross contamination. They also bring the pizza to your table in a to-go pizza box.

    Gluten free crust available. Pretty good. Not amazing, but good. 12" crust, no up charge for GF. Staff not super knowledgable. Asked if the beef for the nachos was GF and she had to ask. They said they couldn't guarantee that it was.... We went with the chicken instead. I ate it and was fine. They weren't very good nachos, so I wouldn't suggest that u bother with them anyway.

    We only ate breakfast here, but I noticed a number of items on their dinner menu that were labeled GF. For breakfast they had omelettes and breakfast potatoes (I checked that they were GF and I ran the very scientific test of eating them and not dying. Twice, actually...and they passed!) Huge and delicious omelettes. They also had eggs, ham, sausage, bacon, fresh fruit... All the basic breakfast stuff. They also have a breakfast buffet, but I'm not brave enough to risk a cross-contamination buffet. No GF breads or pancakes (which was a bit sad as the girl next to me was chowing down on huckleberry pancakes... but even huckleberry pancakes aren't worth a gluten reaction).

    We were to the point in our vacation where we just wanted PIZZA... This was the only place in town that said it had GF pizza. It was most likely an UDI's crust.. It had that taste and it was only available in a 10" size. There is a $4 up charge for GF and since it is bigger than a small pizza (but smaller than a medium!) they charged the medium price. So my 10" mushroom and pepperoni pizza was $20! Most pizzas would be $25+. The pizza was okay. Nothing fantastic, but not horrible. There were an unspecified amount of spicy chicken wings for $9 labeled GF and an artichoke dip with GF chips. They also had GF hamburger buns available. Awfully expensive for 'just okay.'

    I was reeeelly nervous about this place, but the server was pretty knowledgable and very nice. This is a 'home cookin' kind of place.... I was just sure everything would be coated in flour. The waitress assured us that the hamburger, without the bun was safe and the baked chicken and beef stew would be fine. There were also a couple of salads. I ordered the baked chicken, which was very good and initially said no gravy on the mashed potatoes, but the waitress said it was made with cornstarch and was safe. (Always amazing when they actually know that!)

    Such a cute, family owned place! I told them hubby and I were GF and they were super. Sweet potato and regular fries are both GF.... They're the only fried thing in the place! No GF bun, but the put the burgers in lettuce wraps. Hamburger is made in house, fresh daily. Ice cream balls drenched in chocolate for dessert.... Just a delightful and delicious place to eat.

    Great GF pizza. Nice menu with a list of Gluten Free toppings and CERTIFIED GF toppings. This is a pizza buffet, but they brought us our own whole pizza. Plenty big enough for two people. I can't believe he rang the price up right... A gf pizza and two drinks for $6?! Good pizza, good service.

    Dedicated GF menu... Quite a few items to choose from. I had the lamb and hubby had the potato wrapped halibut. Both very good. I'd have given it 5 stars, but our waiter was a dunce. Wrong side on hubby's entree, when they brought the right one, mashed potatoes, they were so dry. On one of the sauces on mine the waiter set my plate down then said 'hmm, not sure if that is GF.' Then he wandered off and never came back until it was time to give us the check. The sauce was listed in the GF menu, but I didn't eat is since I wasn't sure if there was a GF and a non GF version. Good food, poor server..... The other servers around us seemed much more attentive to their customers.

    Worst Disney dining experience. Every other Disney restaurant or snack stand has been so accommodating and reassuring. We stated GF on our reservations (it asks for allergies in the reservation). Stated again at the check. Waiter STILL had NO clue. Manager was dismissive. Said we could order anything that wasn't fried, pizza and one item on the appetizers. So we ordered... And he comes back and says we all ordered wrong and had to order again. Manager did not take our order as in Disney restaurants.... Mom and Dad finally gave up and ordered salad. B & I got a gf rotini pasta with Alfredo and chicken. So very very disappointed.

    They actually make a gf crust... Not a yucky prepackaged, frozen thing.... Good crust. Nice and crispy. Delicious toppings. Nice note in their menu about how the kitchen staff use gloves and new utensils and a special screen so that the gf pizza doesn't touch the pizza stone... They also warn that there is flour in the kitchen and they'll do their best to avoid cross contamination.... But it's not a dedicated gf kitchen.

    Nice gluten free pizza crust. Could have been baked a little crispier, but pretty good. Toppings were delicious! Server was reasonably knowledgeable about GF....

    Wow! The speciality pizzas were amazing... Lamb... Ricotta... Pesto... Lots of different options. And the gluten free crust is really good. Not just "good for gluten free" but really good. Nice and crisp. Delicious!

    Very good GF crust. Staff was nice. Place was cute. Hubby wasn't amazed with the non-GF pizza, but I really liked the GF crust. Thin, ever so slightly sweet, not at all grainy like some, crispy on the bottom, soft on the top.

    Delicious pizza. The gluten free crust was nice and crispy. Even my non-gluten-free hubby liked it. The server warned us that it wasn't a gluten-free kitchen. Just a gluten-free crust. They have GF pasta too.
