    My husband loved the gf chicken soup. It is difficult to get gluten free soup in a restaurant. He Also chose a gluten free hamburger as a steak is more readily available in other restaurants. Have gf pasta available as well.

    Very cute restaurant on Walloon Lake. Beautiful view. Menu marks items that can be modified gluten free. GF pizza crust was not great but I would go back and order something else next time!!

    Nearly the whole menu can be made gluten free! My meal was delicious - started with buffalo chicken dip to share and got chicken quesadilla (open faced) for my meal. The staff was knowledgeable and I felt confident eating here with celiac. I left feeling good and full. Stop here for 10/10 meal Will say to be careful of the bread basket they bring to the table. Said the corn bread was gf but it was at the bottom of the basket under all the bread. Just had to laugh and move forward since the rest of the meal was so good.

    Amazing! Ordered angel hair pasta, they didn't have Gf angel hair so substituted fettuccine. They were very kind and helpful!

    Best #gf meal I think I've had in my 7 yrs as a Celiac. The staff was knowledgeable. They bring out cornbread to start. We had the Prime Rib and Italian Rigatoni which comes with linguini noodles. The pasta was fabulous and the mashed potatoes were to die for. They have a lot of options and even carrot cake for dessert. I cannot wait to go back.

    Wide variety of GF options including GF French toast for breakfast. Had GF bruscetta, sausage pizza, both from similar handmade crust. Took home GF carrot cake....tastes amazing! Waitress Anne very knowledgeable and helpful. Not a dedicated fryer though.

    Great choice for GF. They even have GF beer to go with the GF pizza, along with a lot of other GF entries. Get there at sunset and dinner will be an incredible light show.

    This restaurant is truly awesome! We are here twice during our trip successfully with 2 people in our family having Celiac. The GF cornbread and carrot cake are absolutely delicious. Awesome GF pizza and fettuccine. The first time we are here, my only complaint was that the waitress didn't understand the menu and GF options. The items on the menu that are marked GF can be made GF.

    Ambience and service were fantastic but we went because of the Gluten free options. They do wood fired pizzas and pasta dishes gluten free, have a gluten free roll to enjoy most of their sandwiches on, have multiple salads and have several nice dinners including locally caught whitefish & salmon and a very nice beef brisket that are all G.F. They also provide house baked corn bread for their G.F. guests and best of all have dessert options which include an amazing carrot cake. Can't say enough about our experience at this great restaurant. In the summer they are on the water for great views and have outdoor dining and in the winter guests sit around a roaring fire unless they are seated in the bar area. This was our first visit to Barrel Back and we look forward to going back very soon!
