My friend ordered gluten-free and she said her salad was the best she ever had. The quantity was perfect.

They offered outdoor dining under a nice white tent with patio string lights. It was a beautiful evening.

Absolutely avoid. Have gone there a multitude of times over the past 5 years; no matter how politely I ask them to please leave out an ingredient that provokes an allergy response, either via incompetence or unwillingness have always screwed it up. And these are not unreasonable requests, either. For example: "Please do not give me garlic bread with this; I can't eat it" becomes two slices of garlic bread placed on my plate. "Please do not include the sauce" becomes a ramekin of sauce delivered with my meal. And on and on....Again: placing something ON my plate is 5 seconds of EXTRA work -- not including it would save them time, energy, effort, and money. Yet they consistently disregard my requests every single damned time. Insane. And hazardous; allergy responses are no joke. They'll wind up killing a customer with their incompetence one day -- not even an exaggeration to say that. Peanut allergies are no joke.

Very knowledgeable staff. Baxter salad was delicious as well as shrimp scampi all gluten free. My celiac daughter had grilled chicken and fresh fruit cup off of the kids menu. There is no separate fryer for the fries so she avoided those.

The have a dedicated gluten free menu available on request. There are options for appetizer, different meat dishes for the entrée, and gluten free desserts available upon request. Additionally, they do offer gluten free bread which they bake daily but unfortunately they were out when we recently visited.

The food is excellent and the staff are very knowledgeable about GF. They have a separate menu with several selections to choose from. I have eaten here several times and never gotten sick. To my surprise they even bake delicious GF bread daily. Highly recommend.
