    Thank you, Grill Marks, for a safe, delicious place to eat. I do not recommend the shakes, though. I don't see how those could be safe since they have beer shakes on the menu.

    This was our first visit to Larkin's. There was no separate gf menu, but the hostess said to ask the server any questions & they could cook to order. We called them many times/day for 3 days prior to our visit to try to discuss their gf options & methods, but after never getting a response we reserved our table through OpenTable & requested a server who is knowledgable in gf needs/celiac. They did not honor that request & we were given a server who had to go back to the kitchen every time we asked the simplest questions about cross-contamination or ingredients. She brought my food out on trays with gluten items from other tables & brought my soup out with bagel chips on the plate, so I had to send that back. Instead of bringing it back out right away, she visited & cleared other tables before returning my soup. My husband finished his soup by the time my replacement came. Aside from gf needs, the food was subpar. The shrimp & grits was dry, clumpy (clumps the size of large grapes!) & smothered in overwhelming melted cheese. The only redeeming quality of the entire meal was the gf she-crab soup. We do not recommend this restaurant. Go to Grill Marks instead! Not fancy but much better quality, great gf options & much better service than Larkin's!

    Visited from out of town. The crust was well undercooked & spongy, we asked for extra cheese but it came to use with spots of cheese & mostly empty space, and we sent it back because it wasn't even warm. I'm sick now too, so I suspect they didn't take precautions during prep. I'll stick with the location in Charlotte instead!

    I just talked to the GM. They do offer gf items & offered to clean the prep area for me but their grills/griddles share the stage with their gluten items. Not celiac friendly.

    I've been so pleased with the service & care I've received at this location! The manager has brought out my food each time, confirming that it is GF. The servers are very knowledgable & have gone out of their way to help me & are very considerate as soon as I tell them I have a severe allergy (easier than saying celiac). Very different, much better, experience than at the Southpark location!

    We have had good luck with this location except for when the dining area was full so we decided to eat at the bar. My food was definitely contaminated (brought out on the same tray as my husband's plate, & his food was touching mine). I should have sent it back, which is my fault, not theirs.

  • Brixx Wood Fired Pizza

    Very pricey & flavorless, always-undercooked crust. They do cook the pizza on a stainless steel plate, but they don't use a screen or separate prep area to help prevent contamination while cooking. Great effort on their part, quality toppings & totally fine for most intolerants, but not good for severe celiacs.

    The food is great, but it's always so hectic here that I'm never 100% confident that my food will be handled carefully. They carry the table's food out (gf & non-gf) on a single tray, so if you're very sensitive be sure to ask them to plate it separately (I do every time, but it's always a crap shoot whether or not they will comply). Sides are limited but burgers and (tons of) toppings are fantastic!!! I skip the bun & go straight for a lettuce wrap eaten with fork & knife. They serve Cape Cod chips in individual bags or a fruit bowl on the side.

    They're always so attentive when I tell them I have celiac. The waitstaff goes above & beyond and the food has never made me sick. A great, reliable restaurant that doesn't require research or cause me gluten anxiety!

    Ordered GF General Chicken takeout. My hubby picked it up & when I opened it at home, it had no sauce. Nada. Zilch. When I called they said that their dishes can be made with 'normal' ingredients but they can't include sauces. Misleading GF menu. Be sure to ask for some sort of sauce when you order or you'll receive steamed chicken & veggies with no flavor.

    Staff was very friendly, but food was definitely contaminated & made me sick. No separate cooking or prep area. They said they'd gladly use fresh utensils & clean carefully for me but proceeded to place the utensils on the noticeably crumby (gluten) table surface during prep. I won't eat here again, which is sad because it tastes great.
