Specified to the waitress I was ordering GF, I ordered GF options from the menu, Potato soup & guiltless wings and I now feel like I’ve been hit buy a truck. I feel terrible, so they cross contaminated my food somehow. Too expensive to feel this bad.

Food was delicious and manager assured that delicates fryers were used and cooks change gloves, etc. But runners bring out food instead of waitress, and he had no idea which wings were gluten-free. Had to send them back just to make sure. And still, when they were served there was no identifying mark to make me feel confident that they were indeed gluten-free. Told manager but he didn’t take my suggestions of using different colored plate or some type of marker. He said runner should just know. Well these are high school kids....and no they don’t know.

Lots of GF options clearly marked on the menu but server was not at all knowledgeable about GF and couldn’t answer questions. Service was insanely slow - took longer than 90 minutes to get in and out. Unfortunate, but won’t be back.

The food was impressively bland, service was slow, and we got food poisoning from this location. Perhaps they're good with gluten free, but that's about where it ends!

My daughter and I were just diagnosed gluten sensitive (non-celiac) and this was our first visit to a restaurant since starting our GF diet two weeks ago.

Their kitchen is certified GF and they have a dedicated GF fryer as well.

I had the Pulled Pork BBQ sandwich on the GF roll (without the coleslaw) and the tater tots. It was amazing! Great to know I have a place to go out to dinner with friends.

The waiter was very knowledgeable about the GF foods and prep and was very friendly.

There are a number of GF options clearly marked on the menu including some fried items that are done in a dedicated fryer when you specify your allergy. Staff seemed very well educated and food was good.

Food is great.

Make sure you tell them it is an allergy so they use the dedicated fryers, ask a manager if your server seems hesitant.

Our server was great. I got wings from a dedicated fryer. I ordered a Margarita and he checked with the bartender to be sure it was made gf. Overall we had a great experience at this bar/restaurant.

I ordered a regular cheeseburger. The waitress was told that I have Celiac Disease and that I am super sensitive. I even had the fries and it was all delicious.

The staff is well trained and can tell me what is safe. One of the staff has coeliacs and they have been educating the staff. I've eaten here 6+ times and not sick once!
