Still learning how to navigate restaurants as a newly diagnosed celiac. This place made it easy. Entire GF menu had solid options including things I thought I would have to avoid.

Dedicated fryer with POTATO WEDGE FRIES. They were so good. Split a Cobb salad and grilled chicken entree with a friend and both were also very delicious. It’s also got a nice atmosphere.

Waitress was very knowledgeable about gf items and indicated there was a dedicated fryer AND grill! I’ve never seen our 7yo Celiac son eat out like this before anywhere (unless it was pizza). He had the kids chicken fingers and fries. The sauce was apple cider based, but the server wasn’t sure it was gf (I didn’t know if soy sauce had been added), so we just took it off the plate. Ketchup is the dipping sauce of choice anyway. Atmosphere was amazing and our food was so good! We’ll be back for sure!

Highly knowledgeable staff and multiple options on their Gluten Free menu. Food was delicious! It’s always nerve wracking eating out with celiac…especially when traveling. Thank you for giving this celiac a stress free dinner out ❤

Not only were the service and food lackluster but the server assured me my son's allergies & celiac would be addressed. My son's burger then arrived with cole slaw slathered all over (he's allergic to eggs). The server apologized profusely once I pointed it out but the manager didn't seem to care at all! Will not be returning.

I ordered off the gluten free menu and I was given my food with regular pita bread, I asked for another one to be made and the waitress told me to just take off the pita bread. I told her no, the bread is touching everything and I don’t want to get sick. They remade it. I also ordered a creamy tomato soup and there were croutons on top. Because I got my order to go I didn’t know the croutons were on it until I got to my destination. I’m not sure what happened with the communication piece with the kitchen but there was clearly a disconnect.

I ate here two weeks ago with my friend. Both of us have celiac disease, and while we were assured the food would be safe and even the frying oil wouldn’t cause cross contamination, we both got horribly sick. The waiter was nice, but clearly someone in the kitchen didn’t know what they were doing.

Food was delicious! Staff was very knowledgeable and careful about celiac disease and cross contamination there is a quite extensive gluten free menu which includes safe fried products, burger buns, and sauces. Our waitress in particular, Melissa made it very clear to the kitchen staff that my food could not be cross contaminated. The highlight of the meal was the wonder gluten free desserts, would highly recommend the flourless brownie sundae!!!

The food was ok - just a basic burger, nothing special. And it was gluten free. But the service here was pretty lack luster. The waitress left us for ages before coming to take our order and wasn't very helpful when we had questions.

It's not a place I'd head back to in a hurry.

My husband and I ordered the same burger except mine was GF. Mine was more expensive and I got less food. My husband got onions, tomato and cucumber in his. I only got the meat. Won't be going back. 1 star given for having a gf menu and the chips were good.

A separate gluten free menu with many options available, including gluten free burgers and bun with French fries. Was a little disappointed in the fries, since I was hoping for actual fries and not potato wedges. It's not often gfree fries are offered on the menu. Everything was great though. Kid friendly and casual! Would definitely recommend.
