Delicious and gluten free! All of the pancakes and waffles can be made gluten free. All of the sides are already gluten free. I got the banana bread waffles and GF fried chicken tenders. So so tasty!

I have sampled fried fish all over North American and I believe this is the best. Not only is it gluten free in a dedicated frier they even used oat milk because of my dairy issue! Wonderful!

Can I just say this is single handedly the best gluten free dining experience I have ever had!! The sign on the door says “certified AF” as in certified as f***, because they are certified to cater to nearly every major food allergy. I told the staff I had celiac and they said I’d be able to have everything on the menu (except the biscuits).

I ordered the chicken tenders, Mac and cheese, and fried green tomatoes. (I’m from the south so these are staples I miss dearly). The chicken tenders were the best I’ve ever had, including all the gluten tenders I’ve had before diagnosis! The Mac and cheese was really good too, needed a little salt but that is nothing I can’t fix. The fried green tomatoes were cooked perfectly and came with a herb goat cheese. My husband had never had fried green tomatoes and he said they were amazing! (He is not celiac)

At the end of my meal the server came up and offered me a FREE slice of gluten free cake.

The smile on my face throughout this whole meal said it all, it was perfect. I’m from out of town, but you bet your butt I will be back!

I had the gluten free chicken tenders, fried green tomatoes, french fries, and jalapeno cornbread at Bantam + Biddy Chattanooga, TN.

It was amazing! I haven't had fried food like this since before I was diagnosed two years ago! The staff was very knowledgeable about Celiac disease. All of their fried items are safe. They also have locations in Atlanta, GA.

This place has helped me through my celiac diagnosis. It was the first safe place I found and the one I always come back to. They are very aware of celiac as they have staff who have it as well. Gf chicken tenders, all sides are gf, baked goods/cake, gf beer, dedicated fryer. It’s become my favorite brunch spot. Everything is clearly marked, staff are excellent, and the food never disappoints.

Amazing food and amazing staff!!! If you have celiac this is the restaurant for you!!! When we ordered our food they even notated celiac on our tab for the kitchen to be extra careful. All the sides are GF! We ordered fried chicken tenders, French fries, fried Brussels, Mac n cheese, and pancakes! All were delicious and the pancakes were super fluffy! We will be going back to have breakfast (more than just pancakes) soon!!!!!!

Super knowledgeable staff. We had some questions about corn, and they went to get the kitchen manager to answer all our questions.

Then the kitchen manager offered to go make a waffle batter without corn for us. They make their own batter, so she was able to alter this for us.

The quality was top notch. Banana nut waffle tasted like the gluten ones we remember from way back. The eggs and bacon and protein stuff was high quality and very tasty as well.

It was such a joy to find this little gem of a restaurant where we could enjoy food and not have to worry about allergic reactions. We’ll be back here every time we find ourselves in Chattanooga.

I have never felt so confident eating gluten free at a restaurant. My wife and I found this slice of heaven and I was like a kid in a candy store. I would have ordered everything on the menu if I could have. I had the fried chicken, fried okra, and butter pecan cake, all GF and all delicious. My wife had the GF meatloaf and loved it (I took several bites and concurred with her).

When we arrived, DeSean greeted us more friendly than we have ever been greeted at a restaurant. After visiting with him and him getting me comfortable at how serious they take gluten intolerance and celiac disease (which I have), I settled in. I didn't expect the owner Tegess, to visit with us too. He shared stories about how this restaurant is not just about making a buck but truly helping people that don't get many options at restaurants as they could. A fine gentleman and a great proprietor.

Rest assured though, this is not just a plethora of good GF food; it's just great food!

Tegess, as a real estate developer south of Houston, Texas, please let me know when you want to expand into the Houston market. I will make it happen!

Tagus was the manager and so knowledgeable about celiac and precautious. It was only our second time going to a restaurant since my four year old’s diagnosis and he was very assuring of the safe protocols they follow there. Our daughter was able to have French fries and fried chicken which she was excited about. They shared they are about 90% gluten free, and everything tasted great. We would absolutely eat there again.

An amazing restaurant. I am traveling for an event here in the city and was unsure where I could eat that is safe. I knew of bantam and biddy from a location in Atlanta that caters to gluten free. What I didn’t know is 90% of their menu is gluten free. The general manager Tegess went above and beyond! I came in to order food at 8:50PM when they closed at 9PM. Not only did he take my order he let me sit down and eat!. I appreciate this type of service since it is hard to come by. Best wishes to this restaurant I hope they never go away! They will mark your order as celiac and take the extra precautions to make sure you are safe plus the food is amazing. I tired their chicken tenders and fried shrimp.

I love the gluten free cheddar waffles! They are so fluffy and crispy like Belgium waffles. Ask for pure honey, if you are on the AIP diet. The maple syrup is not pure. The fried green tomatoes are awesome as well!

I came here specifically because of the gluten free options and it did not disappoint! The Fried chicken fingers with spicy honey dipping sauce were DELICIOUS. And ALL of their sides are gluten free. Highly recommend.

They take celiacs SERIOUS!! I have been to the Atlanta Ansley mall location many times but this was my first time to the Chattanooga location. They meet my very high standards for Gluten Free. Fried chicken tenders and Fried okra! Yummy! My husband got the bone-in fried chicken (also GF) and it was AMAZING! Bantam+Biddy are a must on your gluten free dining list.

My family and I absolutely love Bantam & Biddy! We live in Knoxville, but every time we visit Chattanooga, we make it a point to eat here. Our last visit was on Friday. The manager, Tegess, was super helpful as we placed our order and checked with us during the meal to make sure everything was just right. We ordered the awesome gf chicken tenders, mac-n-cheese, okra, and fries. Just being able to safely eat at a gluten free restaurant is SO nice. The entire meal was delicious! Make sure to try their gf free desserts...so yummy!

Blown away by our experience at Bantam + Biddy. Not only is the gluten free menu extensive but the general manager also walked me through all the gluten free products. My boyfriend and I ended up both getting the chicken and waffles. It was so delicious and flavorful. I got a side of the jalapeño cornbread to snack on later because I couldn’t resist. We also both got lattes that were also high quality and tasted like rich coffee - not watered down or too strong. PLUS their cocktail menu has asterisks next to all the gluten free cocktails. Beyond being incredibly considerate of celiac precautions and having an extensive selection, the general manager made us both feel incredibly welcome. Customer service at its finest.

Not celiac friendly. Unavoidable cross contamination issues due biscuits made in-house from scratch. Went for brunch on a Saturday morning, at nearly every plate I saw had a dish with a biscuit or a waffle (also not gluten free). Too bad because their dinner/lunch menu is mostly gluten free aside from some buns.

Great food and service. They even have fried chicken that is gluten free and cooked in a dedicated fryer. As I understand it, one of the chefs has a child that is celiac so they understand the requirements. Large selection of menu items with all sides being GF. Excellent desserts and a large selection of GF beer! A must visit if in the Chattanooga area.

A perfect gluten free experience. The manager was right on top of my concerns regarding cross-contamination and any other questions I had. My chicken tenders were crispy and moist, the fried okra was wonderful and the Mac and cheese was great. Plus, I had gluten free coconut cake (first time in 8 years!). I would come here again and would love to see a location open in Raleigh/Cary.

They had GF pancakes and chicken sausage. Kitchen was notified about gluten allergy. Food was clean. Nontraditional breakfast sausage. It was a spiced sausage made of ground chicken that you may see in a Mexican dish or soup. It did taste homemade. Fruit was stale. But overall good experience. Healthy portions.

Delicious. How fun to be overwhelmed by options. Majority of menu is GF for everyone. We had the cornbread, deviled eggs, pimento cheese dip. fried chicken, fried shrimp, okra, brussel sprouts, mac&cheese, and finished up the peanut butter snack cake. Fried shrimp was the star of the show… crispy, light, and delicious. Don’t miss this spot! Everything was excellent though! Wish we would have taken some jalapeño cornbread home.
