    They don't have a gluten free menu so I can't be TOO hard on them but when my friends and I went there tonight for drinks they assured me that the chips and salsa was gluten free. I'm up at 2 am sick as a dog because clearly they weren't.

    Possibly the worst dining experience I've ever had at a restaurant that advertises a gluten free menu. I am awake at 2 am to tell you about it because I got poisoned. After the hostess showed us to our seats (at a table that obviously hadn't been wiped down) I asked for a gluten free menu. While she got that I used the regular menu to corral all the bread crumbs on the table into a central location and asked if she would wipe it down when she returned because I was very allergic to bread. She picked up the biggest crumbs and that was it - never wiped it down with a rag or anything. I had to use my own napkin to wipe up all the water spots and remaining crumbs. I ordered the mussels and asked they be extra diligent as I was very sensitive. "Wow really? That sucks," the waiter replied. We never got our appetizer and my mussels showed up without the sauce and with bread. The guy picked the bread up off the mussels and handed it to me. I hate to be a pain in a restaurant but since it didn't have the sauce it was supposed to come with it was easy to send back. It came back out with bread again. While our server never did manage to bring us out missing appetizer or get my order right, he did spend lots of time telling us about the bugs he had on his feet that wouldn't go away, getting a DUI and getting beaten up by four guys on his birthday, his bout with chlamidya (in pretty graphic detail) and how he got lap dances for free from strippers. We all laughed uncomfortably because we didn't know what to do but he was oblivious. Twice more throughout the meal he let me know "it must suck to be you" to be so sensitive to gluten. No sir, it will suck to be you when I write the owners a letter.

    Hands down best gluten free pizza Ive found since being diagnosed a year ago. I'm a regular customer and I always ask them to make it in the back. I do get sick every once in awhile but I think that's the risk you take when you are eating out. Staff is friendly and fairly knowledgeable and happy to try to accommodate you. I've recommended them to everyone in the Charleston area I've come across!

    Ordered the gluten-free pancakes because I've had trouble with grits and have found that the majority aren't actually completely GF (that was a surprise). The waitress asked if it was for an allergy and then informed me "there was cross contamination all over the place." I went ahead and got them because I felt a little stuck. They were a Awesome but I am experiencing some symptoms now. :(

    I'm not sure why it says there is a dedicated fryer because there isn't and hasn't ever been, according to the manager. The server didn't know what gluten free was and after going back to check to see if they could accommodate, she came back and I sad I could have anything without bread. Didn't instill much confidence. I had a hamburger without the bun and seemed okay but now I'm having problems several hours later. This restaurant should be removed from the list.

    Excellent food! They don't have a separate GF menu but assured me that the server would be able to help me pick out GF options. Server informed me most of their stuff was made with a cornmeal base. I was able to have shrimp and grits (which you can't have in most restaurants) and they dressed it up with bacon and a tomato sauce they put on top of it. Very fancy and great to feel like I was finally getting to try something fancy and trendy in Charleston!

    I LOVE PF Chang's and was so excited when one came to Mt. Pleasant but I am disappointed to report that I've now eaten there four times and have gotten sick each time! I've tried a few different dishes but always with the same result. This doesn't happen to me at the one in D.C. So I don't know what the story is :((

    They are so great when I tell them about my allergy and ask them to change gloves. You can eat everything here except the buns!
