    have been super knowledgeable and careful. My wife has Celiac and has never gotten sick. We have always enjoyed their food, even before she was diagnosed. Always have staff double check with the kitchen though on specific items.

    The barbecue sauce is NOT GF. This was told to me after I had a bite of the wings dipped in sauce and I definitely felt it the next day. The wings are pretty dry without sauce, so I wouldn't recommend them, but the other options on the menu could be good. They also had Ace cider on tap, which I love.

    They changed their BBQ sauce and their ribs and most other things are no longer safe. When I first started going to the restaurant they had gluten-free and dairy-free items noted on their menu. Then one day they stopped noting the allergies on their menu. With the latest menu change there was little left. In fact they had no allergy menu at all and the wait staff wasn't sure about the gf options anymore. After listening to the 'I think maybe' list I gathered that you might be ok if you order something very plain that has never come into contact with the BBQ sauce. The only thing they knew for sure was gf was the vegan jambalaya. It was very disappointing and we ended up having to find another place for our New Years Eve dinner. Their ribs were tasty. Even when they offered gf options there were issues with cross contamination and they didn't have a dedicated fryer.

    Have eaten Gumbo here once when it was quite tasty. The last time the Gumbo was so heavily spiced we could not taste the food. All three of us left everything in the bowl. One in our party complained and was told it was always like that. Not true, but none of us will go back.

    Stopped by for brunch today and noticed lots of GF items on their (big) brunch menu. Dairy free items were also marked. I had the shrimp & grits, which was delicious! I haven't been to dinner there since I started eating gluten free, but the food has always been excellent!
