This place is amazing! Pretty sure it is family owned with a chef that has over 40 years of experience in the kitchens. The menu is inspired off his wife who has a gluten intolerance so everything on the menu is gluten free!!!(: they were also able to accommodate my diary allergy. WIN

Some alcohol with gluten- all food gluten free

A celiac foodie’s dream! Took my son there for a family birthday- he has celiac - and it was the first time we were able to relax and not worry about him accidentally ingesting gluten. THANK YOU!!!!!!

Update- second time there and was just as nice the second time. I totally trust that they take care in being gluten free. It’s one of the only restaurants I never worry about!

NOT recommended for people with celiac. If you’re just gluten-sensitive, it is okay, but almost everything is cooked with whiskey or bourbon (which is derived from barley/rye) and I have gotten sick multiple times eating here🤮. I wanted to give them a third chance, since they claim to be excellent for gluten free diets, but I was gaslighted by the owner who tried to tell me it wasn’t their food that got me sick. I cook 99% of my food at home, and only tried this place because of their gluten free claims, but when I had the same illnessh twice within hours of eating here, I knew it was to blame. I asked if I could have my meal without their whiskey-derived sauce, and was given a rude reaction. Do NOT risk it! Owner will not work with you if you have celiac disease.

This makes an overly priced dinner both stressful and a near guarantee of illness🥴🤢

What an amazing experience! The entire menu is gluten free and the food was amazing. I had potato chip crusted crab cakes, lobster mashed potatoes, and asparagus. My husband had the glazed Cornish hen (and we got to share food for the first time in a very long time at a restaurant). For dessert we shared the pineapple upside down cake. The staff was friendly and the service was phenomenal. Unless you come early (we got there around 5:30), you need a reservation. We will be back!

Fantastic gluten free find for celiac and gluten free folks! Creative menu, beautiful atmosphere, and although I think it would be a bit of a force fit, my 2 year old celiac son is welcome.

This establishment covered all our bases for food needs, and service. Stephen and Pam were spot on with what to order and presented great wine pairings with our food...The place is clean, inviting, the food was presented well, we would have liked some of the biscuits and deserts we have read about... Next time..

I could go on but will leave you with the most important information you’ll need

Their website says 99% GF. What does that even mean? Why leave 1% left???

They had a cheap scented candle lit on the floor of the entrance. What bad smell are they trying to cover up???

Not fine dining Very casual loud and bright diner-like atmosphere with open concept kitchen where you can see and hear everyone cooking and cleaning Food was good but immensely overpriced for what you are getting, especially in such a loud and casual atmosphere They require upscale attire of their patrons but allow friends and staff to wear ripped jeans and t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. Owner was shockingly unprofessional, becoming aggressive when we explained we had thought this was a fine dining restaurant and wanted to leave because the dish washers were throwing down dishes and owner refused to ask them to stop or to move us into the other room even though this reservation was for my birthday. Staff unprofessional. For example, she had a hard time accepting the fact we weren’t drinking alcohol, didn’t have much else to offer, and asked me if I was pregnant. I’ve known you for all of one minute and you’re asking me if I’m pregnant?

While the restaurant is GF, our 2 non-GF dates raved about the food as well. Nice atmosphere and music played at soft level. We had so many dishes and all were superb. 100% GF menu as wife if chef has gluten intolerance. Everyone that works there is also very nice. We will be back soon. Posting several pics.
