Salmon was excellent. The waiter double-checked ingredients to make sure I could eat safely.

Traveling for the weekend, stopped here for dinner. I asked before we were seated if they had gluten free options and was told yes. The menu had nothing marked as gluten free. I asked the waiter and was told no they didn’t have anything but could do lettuce wraps on the burgers or sandwiches. I ended up having a baked potato for dinner, very disappointed. Would not recommend.

They've came a long way! I tried an omelette (w/o milk or cheese as I don't do dairy). As soon as the order hit the kitchen, the manager came out and greeted me. He explained to me how the food was prepared and protected from cross contamination by using separate pans and utensils. I was impressed. He again came out with my safe food. Restaurant is focused on creating safe conditions for those with gluten allergies and celiac disease. He also said that most foods are made fresh and you can customize what you want. I'm doing four stars because they don't have a plethora of naturally gluten-free products, but there are possibilities!

I used to be able to eat here and they would modify things so it was safe to eat. They must have changed managers though because I recently went here and ordered my usual omelet with the modifications and informed the waiter of my gluten issue. Halfway through my meal I had a big reaction and they were very reluctant to ameliorate the problem. Never eating here again!

Went fine! They have some dressings and a molten cake labeled as gluten free, but that's all. Waitress did inform the kitchen when prepping the meal. My husband is Celiac and breakfast food is usually a safe bet - the omelette and French fries worked out and he didn't get sick!

They don't have anything gluten free. Went there and the waiter had no clue what I was even taking about when I asked for an allergy menu so he had to ask the manager. Turns out they don't even have one. Don't know why this restaurant is even on here

Went for breakfast and had a excellent scramble with fresh fruit and cottage cheese on the side. My waiter knew all about celiac and cross contamination, and was very helpful. I'd go again, though it did make me a little sad to see all those delicious-looking baked goods.

There was nothing on the menu that was gluten-free unless the standby of iceberg lettuce and lemon wedges. I can get that at home. The waiter didn't have any suggestions.

There was only ONE gluten free item on the menu. They said if I knew what I could eat the could fix me like grilled chicken. Duh I know that if I want to eat an animal how to order. I can even order a hamburger and not eat the bun. My husband is happy with his food but this shouldn't be listed on a gluten free restaurant finder.

It was great! They have no gluten free menu, but there are gluten free choices. My waiter was very attentive and told the kitchen I had gluten allergy. They swapped gluten free toast for the biscuit that came with the omelette and potatoes. They took measures to avoid cross-contact (switch gloves, clean up, separation, etc.) I am a happy Celiac!

They have gluten-free bread that can be used for toast or as a bun. It’s pretty good bread - honestly it’s probably as good as the gluten-y toast. I have zero faith in their procedures, though.

Probably safe for those looking to minimize gluten, but not a good place for those with celiac or wheat allergies

I came to black bear diner from out of town. They have bob red mills oats and as long as you tell them about cross contamination they are good about pulling out a separate pan. The fryers are shared and the grill is as well celiac safe I give a 5/10 due to my waitress knowing about celiac but gluten intolerant you would be safe here.

Servers were uninformed and not helpful when asked about gluten free options. The menu offers gf bread on the breakfast menu and a gf salad dressing but no further information on allergens were available.
