As much as I was looking forward to my lunch at this place... my heart broke when my salad tested positive for gluten. My waiter offered to give it a second shot, but I was too uncomfortable and left.

Always a safe option for my 10 yr old Celiac. We have visited both the Las Vegas and Corpus Christi locations with success. GF pizza is her favorite and the wheat waters off the family also have a great dining experience.

They always take such great care of me when I come here! I eat here A LOT and I think I've only gotten sick once, which is what sometimes happens when you go out to eat at a place like this. This was when they were relatively new though. Ever since I've been back they always make sure everything is safe. Recently the manager gave my fiancé and I free pizookies because it was taking a long time and they wanted to ensure they were prepared safely for us :) the only downside is there is very limited food options if you don't like getting the same thing, but I always get pizza and a pizookie!

My wife has celiac. She made it very clear to the server that she needed her food gluten free. They are VERY slow at this location. Not so good if you have impatient little boys. The first thing to come out was my wife's salad loaded with croutons. The portions were pretty small for the price. The food tasted good once it came out correctly. 2/5 is the max rating I would give this location.

Although I was brought a NON gluten free plate. I made our waiter aware of this, he was very apologetic. Took it back to the kitchen and I was made a new plate. It was AMAZING!!! Delish!!!!!!! I had the balsamic glazed chicken from the gluten free menu!!!!! I will be going back!!

They have a limited gluten-free selection but one of the great things they do offer is a gluten-free dessert(skillet cookie) that is not just icecream. The cookie was so good I questioned whether it was gluten-free. I didn't get sick so I guess that verifies that it was.

No GF labels on the covid safe online menu, but I was provided the allergen binder to flip through. Took me so long to finally figure out what I could eat from looking at the online menu and comparing to the binder. They did have GF buns. I still got glutened! The food tasted good but would not recommend. My non GF friends also did not feel good after the meal. Will not be returning.

The menu labels "gluten sensitive" items. I am intolerant and was not glutened, but it may be unsafe for a celiac. I ordered a gluten free pizza, but they also offer quinoa bowls, soup, and salads gluten free. I even saw a gluten free dessert on the menu which I will have to try next time.

I have a wheat allergy, not celiac. I am very sensitive and get immediate reactions as well as delayed reactions. I was a bit paranoid, did research. Ordered GF pizza with 3 toppings and a GF pazooki, told the waiter was it was an allergy and she made sure she reiterated multiple times even after ordering desert. I ate with caution and waited, no reaction. Definitely recommend.

My mom-in-law and I are both GF- she has celiac and mine is not as severe of an intolerance. On vacation in Florence KY we saw Bj’s on the Find Me Gluten Free app, saw it was highly rated and decided to try. She and I both ordered burgers on GF buns, for a side she got a loaded baked potato and I got a mixed greens salad. Both tasted great! Good portion sizes; not overwhelming, but filling. Then we shared the GF chocolate chip pizookie, and it was very tasty!! The portion size was great for us to share after all we’d just eaten. Neither she nor I felt sickness or gluten-like reactions, we enjoyed the place very much! We also had a very kind, knowledgeable server.

Wanted to celebrate my Mother-In-Law's birthday with our family. I have Celiac's disease (severe Gluten Allergy), so finding a place that everyone will enjoy AND be safe for me to eat is always a problem.

Places that offer both standard meals and gluten sensitive options (they can't say "gluten free" because of possible cross-contamination) are always a crap shoot. My ability to eat out safely is truly in the hands of those that prepare and handle my meal.

Everyone knows that BJ's food and brews are delicious...plus the PIZOOKIES!! but what always sets one location from another is their customer service and this BJ's is the absolute best!!!

Ryan T and his manager (I'm sorry I don't remember his name) truly went above and beyond! From the moment I told Ryan that I had a gluten allergy he was so careful. They made every accommodation they could and when I had a question about something (like sauces) Ryan was quick to find out the answer. When he didn't know the answer, he checked with the manager.

There was even a moment where the manager took the time to visit our table just to make certain my meal was safe to eat. Really above and beyond!

I always feel like a burden to the server/restaurant when going out to eat. Not many places/people understand that "gluten free" isn't always a choice... it's a necessity. PLUS, it's the entire restaurant that is involved! Everyone that handles the food, plate, glasses, silverware is involved to help make sure cross-contamination doesn't ruin the gluten free experience. Even a spatula or a glove that has handled bread/gluten can ruin my time out with my family for the ENTIRE DAY.

Ryan, his manager, and the entire food prep team gave us the best customer service and for that they deserve a standing ovation! Truly, I thank you all for helping my family celebrate my MIL birthday and I look forward to visiting again :)
