The regular menu is marked with GF notations and they have really good gluten free buns! The server was very knowledgeable and warned about a shared fryer before I even asked. I asked for the fries on the side so someone else could eat them (because I didn’t want the other side options) and they made sure to bring them on a separate plate. Sit out back for some live music! :)

I let the staff know I was celiac and they immediately assured me that I was in good hands. Took great care of me and I had an awesome meal and didn’t feel sick at all.

12/2019 update: they got rid of their gluten free menu. They still carry sonny Marie buns though!

GF pasta prepared separately.  Knowledgeable staff.  Pair with Ale-8 skinny mule cocktail.  Ask for Tito’s vodka and non-diet ginger ale.

There were a lot of good reviews so we trusted the restaurant. BAD IDEA!!! There were no gluten free menus and the regular menus we were given had food all over them. It’s really disappointing and sad when you think a place is safe any you end up getting sick.

After seeing so many great reviews on here, I was very excited to go to Arnold's for a work lunch. When I got the menu, I was excited to see the Notorious PIG marked as GF but I noticed it said "beer braised pork belly". I asked the server to check with the kitchen and when she came back she said "You can get it on a GF bun, but the pork is not gluten free"....so it shouldn't be marked on the menu as GF? I ended up having a really good burger, but I was very disappointed with their nonchalant response to something that could have terrible consequences for someone else who might not have noticed.

What is there to say that other reviewers haven't? Good buns (great texture and held up to the juice of the burger!) from a local bakery. Live music, great ambiance, and a bunch of GF options on the menu. Can't wait to stop back in our next time in Cincinnati.

Signature Garlic pasta dish is prepared separately and is amazing. Items marked “GF” on the menu. Wax nostalgic in the oldest tavern in Cincinnati and feel safe doing it!

My entire family ate dinner here including 2 with celiac and 2 without allergies. Everyone loved their food! My son got a burger with gf bun (from local gf bakery Sonny Marie’s) and devoured every bite. I had the delicious gf blueberry chicken. We loved the atmosphere and 3-piece jazz band as well. Highly recommend!

Our waitress was super nice and immediately knew about Celiac disease as soon as I brought it up. There is another waitress there that has Celiac as well. I ordered a burger and it came on the most delicious gluten free bun. Almost thought it wasn’t actually GF... the waitress with Celiac wrote down the name of the bun for me. Will definitely be back here to try their other GF items!

Very good food! The waiter went through menu items with me and made me feel very comfortable ordering and eating the food. A large number of things can be made gluten free. I had the quinoa salad, they used red wine vinegar instead of soy sauce to make the dressing. I was skeptical that it wound taste good but holy cow it was delicious! Will definitely go back!

Absolutely delicious burger. One of the best gf buns I've ever had. Chips are grippos so they are gluten free too. Nice atmosphere in the garden. Wait staff was not very knowledgeable though and there was no indication of gf options on the menu. I would have never known if it weren't for this app. Also it was quite pricey.

We had an ABSOLUTELY amazing experience at Arnold's Bar & Grill and would highly recommend it for those with Celiac Disease. I called ahead to learn about their cross contamination knowledge and procedures and talked with the most informative person who assured me that all staff members are trained in cross contamination safety. He also mentioned MANY menu items which can be made gluten free and also let me know that they have gluten free bread and buns. He even went so far to make a note that we would be arriving at 6 p.m. and have a person with Celiac Disease in our party. I have never before been met with such wonderful service! When we arrived we were reassured again about the gluten free choices, and the same person I spoke with on the phone came over to check on us several times. He even went so far to offer to walk us to our car with an umbrella as it was pouring outside! He truly went above and beyond. And the food...it was awesome!! My daughter had gluten free spaghetti and was in heaven. I also recommend the Greek Pasta! We will definitely be back the next time we visit Cincy!!

Arnold's has always been one of my favorite places -- great food; live music and a lot of charm. I recently learned that they had a gluten free menu and was blown away by the extent of it. All of their pasta dishes are available gluten free and the even feature the gluten free dessert on the dessert list on the table. A vegan menu is also available.
