I called ahead and spoke to the manager and then asked very specific questions again with the waitress. I am sure the restaurant did their best but my daughter still got very ill from the cross contamination. This risk of cross contamination is too high here. If you have celiac, I would not recommend this place.

Only one appetizer, one salad option, 3 main courses and one basic pizza. A dessert of a gluten free cookie. Not much.

The menu is labeled with GF and mentioned that they can accommodate gluten free. I ordered a zucchini noodle dish and halfway through eating I found 4 spaghetti noodles. Not safe.

Ordered off of the gluten free menu and requested a house salad for my side. The backup server brought out the salad with croutons on it, I told her I had requested my meal to be gluten free per having celiacs and she rolled her eyes and walked off and came back about a minute later having given me the same exact salad with the croutons just pulled off. Notified the server assigned to my table that I could not eat the salad because it was brought with croutons and she apologized and brought me a fresh salad almost immediately. The experience left me feeling uneasy about consuming the food, but I was okay this time and did not get sick.

I went here again recently and the server of our table didn’t seem to really understand the requests. We kept having issues at the table about food being forgotten or incorrect and with this experience, I feel like the server may have been confused or overly busy which resulted in my food being contaminated and me being sick.

All in all, some of the employees are knowledgeable and sympathetic to people whom have celiacs while others treat you as an inconvenience for making them do their job. But this place seems to be a hit or miss. I’ve had great experiences here as well.

Very few options for gluten-free. I had the cheese pizza and it had no flavor.

I’ve gone here twice and got the gf pizza and I have asked if they make the pizzas in a clean area away from gluten foods and they always tell me yes. And they will also note that I have a gluten allergy so they are extra careful. They also have trulys and their own berry cider which are gluten free alcohol drinks.

My server was great, she was knowledgeable about Celiac and made sure the GF pizza I ordered was prepared safely. She also checked the ranch when I asked about it. The menu has several gluten “sensitive” options and the only things labeled gluten free were the pizza and a pizzookie so I ordered the thin crust pizza and it was good
