    Unfortunately, not all food that is labeled GF is actually GF. Beware of the wings. My sister wasn't notified until after she ate some of them that they weren't GF. Even though both the hostess and waitress were informed of three of the party having celiac. Needless to say, my sister spent the remainder of her birthday extremely uncomfortable and sick to her stomach. Beyond that, the food was good. Fried foods are made with rice flour which is why there are a lot of GF options.

    Three words: Gluten free wings!!! GF clearly marked on menu. I neglected to mention my allergy since it was clearly marked but my salad came with a slice of bread on it. I told the wait staff and within seconds the manager flew to the table and had my salad replaced. Very accommodating! The wings are amazing also. :-)

    I thought I had died and gone to gluten free heaven when I saw the menu! There were so many amazing options. I have the onion rings, burger with a homemade gluten free bun. The tater tots were great too. The servers were very knowledgeable about gluten issues! I would give it 10 stars if I could!!

    Their french fries are now made in a dedicated fryer and they were the best french fries - thin and crispy - perfection. We went for happy hour, so the price was reasonable. My non-celiac husband enjoyed his meal. I did have a moment of concern because they carried our plates out together, kind of stacked, so it made me wonder if they understand cross contamination, but the meal was delicious and I did not get sick.

    I have been to the restaurant multiple times without any problems and fantastic service. However, my most recent visit was a disaster. The staff was incredibly rude and although there was a line out the door of people waiting to be seated, they continued to talk and eat in the food preparation area of the kitchen. Our appetizer never came out and the food came out cold and poorly made. On top of this, for some reason the manager felt the need to take his belt completely off in the kitchen...in full view of the guests. Even though I have eaten here multiple times without getting sick, the unprofessionalism and disgusting kitchen behavior of this last visit was so horrible that I and my friends will never return. On top of this, seeing how the food was prepared gives me significant reason to doubt the safety and the risk of cross contamination. It is so disappointing to see such a fantastic restaurant have these issues. If you are going to risk trying this restaurant, don't go during non lunch or dinner hours (we went during a weekday afternoon) as it clearly isn't their best staff.

    Amazing yummy burger options with a good gluten free hamburger roll. My only disappointment was that even though they have many "gluten free" foods (like fries and chicken tenders) there are cross contamination issues with shared fryers. Therefore none of the fried foods were actually safe for me to eat. Plan B could really benefit from adding a dedicated gluten free fryer for their truly gluten free customers!

    Wow, what a great GF food option in DC. I wish there was one in Columbus. I asked about their fryer and they informed me it was dedicated t avoid cross contamination. With that I ordered the fish and chips which I have not ever found GF. It has been close to 20 years since I had fish n’chips. I have celiac and I had now problems after eating at this restaurant.

    I had fish and chips which was awesome!! I think everything that’s fried is gluten free. The waitress was super knowledgeable. The reason I gave it 4 stars is just because I was really excited to try the onion rings but they were undercooked and super doughy. Probably just a one time thing and I’d still recommend it because I didn’t get sick and the fish was amazing.

    My daughter and I have celiac disease. We decided to try this place out based on the reviews on Find Me Gluten Free. The food is AMAZING. I opted to not have a gluten free bun with my burger and got the blue cheese burger. I'm just not a fan of gluten free buns -they seem to be more trouble than they're worrh. It was amazing and was presented beautifully. My daughter's gluten free bun was probably the most normal looking gluten free bun I've seen. I had the chipotle fries and my daughter had the sweet potato fries. They also had our favorite hard cider. The staff seemed knowledgeable about cross contamination. Neither of us got sick after eating here.

    So so so so so good. We came on the 4th of July, so it was extremely busy, but the kind hostess was willing to move tables around since we came specially for the gluten free food. It was amazing. I’ve never felt so full since I went gluten free, I’ve never enjoyed a meal so much, and I’ve never had such a good burger (gluten free or normal). The bun was amazing, the meat was incredible, and the fries (made in a dedicated fryer) were fantastic. On top of that, the atmosphere was good and our waitress was very nice. This is a must if you’re in DC!

    GF friendly, but dairy-free folks note that the onion rings are made with buttermilk. (Sigh) Noisy, so if you want to converse, sit in the section under the low roof. Also beware of the nighttime highway repair this year (2018-19) and take alternate routes after 9 p.m.

    We were in D.C. for a few days and had to come back a second night because the food was so delicious. The onion rings are amazing! You would never guess they were GF. The first night I had the fish and chips which were good but they are seasoned with Old Bay which was a little strong for me but still good. The second night I had the fish sandwich which the best GF bun and tarter sauce helped to hide some of the Old Bay seasoning.

    I’m celiac and have eaten here safely many times. I get a simple tavern burger (no sauce) in the grass with fries, so I can’t speak to the quality of gf buns but I am confident they are careful about cross contact. The food is heavy pub food so I have to be careful not to overdo it, but it’s very good for what it is. It’s one of the few places in the area where I feel safe eating.
