This "old Florida" institution has been here forever, but it wasn't GF friendly years ago. Thy have a GF menu, two GF BBQ sauces and a good understanding of our issue. No GF bread alternatives. Glad to see that I can go to our old stomping grounds and eat well.

Menu indicates a handful of gf items but says "avoid buns, French fries, cole slaw and seasonings." Black bean soup was gf but served with crackers, so the server didn't seem to be terribly conscientious about gf. I would not trust the place as a celiac. No gf buns or wraps offered. Not really any different than avoiding known gluten at any other restaurant.

Exceptional lunch wrap. They use Udi's rolls and tortillas and the pesto chicken was outstanding. Great service and knowledgeable staff. Outdoor seating was noisy because of traffic. I indulged, too!

Extreme care given to gf orders. Manager stopped by, double checked the order. Explained the procedures and returned to ensure all was well. They prepare grilled foods on foil, use separate utensils and are very cautious. Tasty, too.

Clean and bright diner and pizzeria with friendly servers and extensive gf menu. Turkey dinner with gf gravy and stuffing, roast beef etc. I had a deli sandwich on Udi's white bread and gf onion rings. So darned normal, what a treat! Wish we lived closer.

Excellent Italian baguettes and the lemon bars are to die for. Love their snickerdoodles, too!

Menu says, "Ask about our GF options" but server said, "All we have is the tiny corn tortillas." They offer numerous wraps but have no GF tortilla big enough for them. So it's tacos, pretty much. If they could just add a 10" GF tortilla "wrapper," which are plentiful in stores, they'd open up the majority of their menu items for GF diners. Food is pretty tasty and the restaurant is extremely kid friendly. The balloon man who works a couple of evenings a week is amazing.

Items that are usually gluten free, like risotto and polenta, have gluten ingredients. Wheat is not always identified as an allergen, so you have to read the whole list every time. New blueberry muffins are delicious, though. Keep trying, TJ's. Maybe hire an expert on the prepared-foods side?

We've been here many times and appreciate having many GF options, but GF takes *forever*. I understand that it must be prepared separately, but unless you call your order in ahead, you can plan to eat after everyone else at the table. Would be nice to have GF dinner rolls or garlic bread or something so you're not just sitting there hungry, watching everyone else eat. That said, the GF options are good!

So disappointed! This place has a 12-page GF menu and I was so excited to have some things I hadn't had in years. Unfortunately we were greeted first by a musty smell, then by a grumpy staff. When we found a (fried) fly in our food, they had no idea how to handle it. They studied the plate, pondered the ceiling fixtures (ack!) and offered to make us another plate. Um, we'll pass. We were too disgusted to finish what we had.

I always feel safe here. GF dinner rolls are too delicious, though. Nice to eat chowder and calamari. GF dishes are always delivered by the manager, too. They do it right!
