Even after viewing the binder and ordering something "free of wheat" along with the waitress assuring me that my order would be prepared with the utmost care. I still am leaving sick. I will never eat here again.

I went with my 2 sons who have celiacs. The manager was so helpful-came over with the binder and explained everything. Our waiter,Jeff, was also very helpful. Overall, one of the better gf experiences we've had.

This place does NOT have a GF menu, which tells me they have suppliers that they don't monitor. The staff are not educated and when you ask about GF options, they bring out 'The Binder' which shows a list of items you still have to cross reference with the menu, and cross reference again by specific elements in each of the already cross checked menu items. It would be nice if they just marked the regular menu with possible allergens, or just don't bother at all? Why don't these chains just have standard things they always have that are always ok for certain allergies? Gluten is a growing issue that more and more people are becoming aware of. Get ahead on the curve people! So I go elsewhere.

The menu is “gluten sensitive” and is not suitable for anyone who has celiac and a severe reaction to gluten.

I have celiac. There are a few god options. I have the ribeye once and the sirloin another time. Don’t risk the fries, they are in a shared fryer. But the mashed potatoes and veggies are good.

Items on the menu that include gluten are indicated with a gluten sensitive (gs) logo. Additionally, when the waiter found out I was gluten sensitive she spoke to the manager and the manager came out with the allergy binder so that I could appropriately make a decision. Very pleased with the service and professionalism.
