    I was not excited to try this place due to the other reviews. Our service was actually pretty good - not lightning fast, but our waiter was attentive and I don't remember anyone's glass getting empty without a refill. The food was so so. I ordered the chicken cacciatore. It was served over polenta - which was an interesting flavor combination, but nothing I'd order again. I was a little disappointed when I was told they had gluten free bread and all I got was two pieces of toast! However, they were knowledgable about food allergies and I did not get sick. Not my best gluten free dining experience, but certainly not the worst.

    Had a wonderful meal here last weekend. The pork tenderloin was cooked to perfection and served on a bed of spicy rice. The server seemed to have good knowledge of Celiac and was quick to warn of cross contamination with the chips as they are not cooked in a dedicated fryer (wanted to mention that due to the last review). The only cons are it is a tad pricey and the restaurant itself is small so you may need reservations. Will return when I'm in the area.

    Stopped here for lunch before heading to the beach. Had the fish tacos and they were really good. The staff is knowledgeable about cross-contamination and very accommodating. A little pricey, but worth it to stay healthy. Will stop here again when I'm in the area.

    This place is awesome! Using a savory waffle as a pizza crust is a genius idea. Hands down the best gf pizza crust I've ever had! The guacamole was also phenomenal - and I'm not a huge fan of guacamole. I was also lucky enough to be able to sample their coconut cake and it was amazing as well. And to top it off, the prices are very reasonable for gluten free. Probably the best meal I've had since going gluten free 2 years ago. Will definitely be back when I'm in the area!

    A great, dedicated gluten free restaurant. Nice to be able to order anything off the menu and not worry. Went for lunch on my first visit and had the chicken pesto with arugula on a gf baguette and homemade chips. Very tasty and flavorful and was just enough to be filling, but not overly so. Maybe a bit pricey, but that's just a fact of life for the gluten free. Definitely worth it for the quality of food and peace of mind in a completely gf environment. Looking forward to going back for brunch!

    Didn't get sick here, but could've had a better experience. First off, it took a while to even get seated though it was not busy. Ordered chicken enchiladas at the server's suggestion only to have him come back a few minutes later to say the chicken wasn't safe. Ok - at least they caught it, right? Was then told that shredded or ground beef was safe. I ordered the shredded beef only to have ground beef on the plate when it got to me. I honestly didn't even realize I got the wrong thing until after we left (a long, tiring day and trying to keep two toddlers happy during the meal kept me from noticing). It's a double edged sword - at least the choices I was given were both apparently safe, but the fact that I didn't get what I actually ordered makes me uneasy about going back. I feel like I just got really lucky. That said, the meal was decent and I didn't get sick.

    Don't let the college age guys behind the counter fool you. They know their stuff - changed gloves, wiped down their workspace, and even made sure I had BBQ sauce from behind the counter so I wouldn't have to use the contaminated ones on the tables. All that and the food was top notch. Do yourself a favor and try the loaded potato salad - it's awesome! Will definitely be back when I'm in the area again.

    The server was fairly knowledgable but a little uncertain about some things on the gluten free menu. So I kept it simple and ordered a steak and baked potato. It was ok - steak a little overdone but edible - but nothing to write home about. They do have a dedicated gf area in their kitchen. Most importantly, I did not get sick. Would recommend.

    Was there on a busy Saturday night about a week ago. The waitress was pretty good. She intercepted the breadbasket that was headed for our table and knew for sure of at least one gf dessert option without having to check. The gf pasta was fresh and went great with the red sauce and prosciutto wrapped chicken. All of their sauces are gf so that helps a great deal with cross contamination. Wish we had gotten just a bit more personal attention, but considering how busy they were that night, I was very pleased with the meal and the service.

    This was the first place I went to after being diagnosed. Have been there 5 or 6 times in the 6 months that have followed and have never had a bad experience. Waitstaff is knowledgeable and helpful. They have dedicated fryers and their gf buns are awesome!
