    We had an amazing dinner last night. The gluten-free menu is detailed, listing exactly what changes need to happen in which dishes (some of the cheese fondues substitute Redbridge beer for the lager beers, no croutons on salads, etc). We had the Endless Fondue special, which gives you four courses (cheese, salad, entree, dessert) with unlimited meats for your entree. The cheese fondue came with gluten-free brown bread; we had to skip the teriyaki sirloin and the spinach ravioli on the entree; dessert had gluten-free brownies and pound cake. Their gluten-free items come from French Meadow Bakery. I recommend getting the premium cheese fondue dippers as well; the meats really add nuance to the course. A nice, leisurely, 3-hour dinner.

    The waiters were very knowledgeable; I said I was gluten intolerant and he knew exactly what I could and couldn't have. Basically, the chicken legs and some of the premade salads on the salad bar were the only off-limits items. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant, but to be fair, you're not going there for the mashed potatoes. The meats were all very good, flavorful and cooked well. The fried polenta was delicious, and of course, the tapioca cheese bread was excellent. I love going to a place that offers gluten-free desserts, too. The creme brulee was lovely, and the coffee was outstanding. A return visit is definitely in order.

    It's nice to have a place with gf pizza and other options. The garlic cheese bread is sort of sweet, though, and I prefer a thicker, chewier crust and a more savory sauce. If i don't want to make my own, though, this is our go-to place.

    Way overpriced. The food is just average, not worth the top-shelf prices, and the ambiance is this weird mixture of diner and fine dining, with loud top 40 music, and lots of noise and clatter from the kitchen and bar. The service was good, but it's not enough to get me to go back.

    I've always been pleased here. The main menu mentions the $1 upcharge for a gf bun, but the gf printout doesn't. Still, I'll gladly pay the extra!

    Fries aren't gf. I had the corn and the grean beans, both were mushy and bland. The beef brisket was fatty and oily. I wouldn't go back.
