    What a pleasant surprise. I thought I would just get a salad while I watched my husband and friends enjoy Italian cuisine. Upon arrival my husband asked the hostess if they are familiar with gluten free and have any options. Jackpot!!! I got a large GF pizza that was superb and they take cross contamination precautions. It was a thin crust purchased frozen and it was out of this world. It was like eating a normal pizza. Perfect sauce and cheese ration with abundant sausage and mushrooms. No GF pasta options at this time but our great waitress said her manager is working on it. My husband got a salad that he said was incredible. It's about a half hour drive for us (between Cleveland east side suburbs and Burton, Ohio-maple sugar capital). Can't wait to go back.

    Not as good as the one in Niagara Falls where I remember a much better burger and fries. Appreciate the dedicated fryer but the crinkle cut fries were nothing special. My medium well burger was pretty pink. Also remember a better bun at the Falls. This one totally fell apart and I switched to eating with a knife and fork. Oh, and the cheese was not melted on the burger just kind of laid on top. The waitress was very attentive, but not much else to write home about.

    Well I have to agree the atmosphere is less than desirable. Indeed it is Celiac friendly. I had a special griddle and I made gluten free French toast. I was though very uncomfortable because we were seated out on an enclosed porch and the griddles built into the tables throw off a lot of heat on a hot summer day. The French toast though was very good as was the sausage. Not sure I would be a repeat customer because it wasn't aesthetically appealing. Glad I tried it though. My husband had his once a year on vacation sausage biscuits and gravy which he thought were very good. Looked like the kids (and there were a ton of them) had fun making their own pancakes.

    Absolutely fabulous. Yes, it's a very small place but they are moving to a larger location and will be serving both lunch and dinner. Can't remember if she said when they are moving. We got there early about 11:30, which was great because the place filled up (so glad to see a dedicated GF restaurant frequented by so many). The takeout business was non stop. The waitress was adorable and she took care of all the tables and the takeout orders. I had a cheeseburger to die for (it was a special that day and not on the regular menu, I but it should be) with a buttered bun that was soft and totally yummy. It was topped with sautéed romaine (thought that was strange but I'm a believer now) huge slice of tomato and red onion pieces and savory sweet potato fries. I was only going to eat half of the burger tbut I couldn't resist. Also had to have a cheesecake bar for dessert. My husband had a very substantial chicken salad sandwich on thickly sliced regular bread. Don't miss this place if you're in Nashville. Wish I had gone back the next day. People with Celiac Disease living in Nashville are very fortunate to have this restaurant option.

    A very nice find. Our waitress Bethany was very sweet and helped us choose so we could sample multiple items on the GF menu. Unfortunately our dinners came out before our salads which was weird. My husband and I started to eat but the food wasn't hot at all. We didn't see our waitress and my husband got up to look for her and saw she was bringing out our salads. We told her the food wasn't hot and she was very troubled with this and took the plates away. The salads were quite good, different kinds of greens, just enough cheese, big pieces of real bacon bits and almonds. The 1000 Island Dressing (GF) was yummy. Our dinners returned with new food which was piping hot. The waitress also had the manager come over and he was very apologetic. The only thing I didn't care for was the smoked chicken served off the bone. Because this was our first time there they provide a complementary dessert. No GF desserts :( My husband got pecan pie (it looked heavenly and he tried to down-play it but I knew it was good). The waitress was apologetic that there wasn't a GF dessert. I'm used to that and was pretty full so it was okay. Very good service and good food.

    Quite a disappointment. Not at all Celiac friendly. The other reviewer made it sound very promising. I called the day before to make sure there was GF option because of what I read here. I was told they make something GF everyday and that GF bread is available with breakfast items and for sandwiches. It's quite a strange setup. Wait in line, place your order, take your beverage and a cleaver sign with monkey shaped number on a stand and hunt for a table yourself. Your food is delivered to you when ready. Payment is upfront before you get the food. My husband included a tip with the payment for absolutely no service. Who knew. When ordering I asked if there is a dedicated toaster for the GF bread. Nope. Okay, I'll just take the bread (can always put butter and jelly on it). The fellow taking the order asked if I had Celiac. Yep. He said that they are not Celiac friendly and not only should I not have the bread, because it wasn't guaranteed GF, but I shouldn't even order eggs with bacon or turkey sausage because they are made on the same griddle with pancakes etc. My fault not to have asked more detailed questions the day before, but not only does this place not belong on this list their website should not advertise GF. The fellow checked with the kitchen and they said they would make my scrambled eggs with cheese in a separate skillet. We waited for quite a while to be served, long enough for the ice in our water to melt (no seats inside so we had to sit outside in the sun-no shade). My eggs arrived on a plate with nothing else on it, because there is nothing else for me to eat and no cheese on my eggs as requested. The eggs are a little too wet for me, but I choked down as much as I could. Fortunately I had eaten something to tied me over. Our cousin ordered a breakfast sandwich on a wheat bagel which looked pretty unappetizing and she didn't finish it, I wouldn't have either. My husband ordered eggs over medium with with avocado, sprouts, and salsa on rye toast. It came with swirled bread that wasn't toasted, no butter, margarine or jelly was served. Since the servers really only bring out the food there wasn't an opportunity to ask someone for more water/ice or condiments. So fellow Celiacs don't waste your time.
