I asked for a gluten free menu and was told the manager would be over to help me. He was able to go through the menu with me and patiently answered all my questions. I had the Seared Mahi Black Oak salad and it was so delicious. My gluten full family really enjoyed what they ate. It’s definitely a fresh and tasty place. We will return again.

Ask for Amber! Limited GF menu, however a trained server comes to your table when you request the GF menu. I had the nachos and they were good also had a burger without the bun and fries because they have a dedicated fryer but the fries are average at best. I have eaten there in the past but don’t remember what I had. They do have some options.

Fantastic service! The waiter was very knowledgeable about what I could adjust on the menu and still be both gluten and dairy free. The burger was delicious!

They had a nice selection of gluten-free options. I believe they were short staffed during the time we visited because we had several mistakes in our order. But once the mistakes were corrected the food was good. The manager did come out and check on everything as far as the allergies. Out of six people in our party who are gluten-free no one had any trouble.

They didn’t have a separate menu, but our waitress was able to point out the different options on the menu that were GF. I ordered the grilled chicken, potatoes, and seasoned veggies. The service and food were great and I didn’t get sick.

As soon as I told our server, Ashley, that I had Celiac Disease and asked if they had a gluten-free menu, she got the manager to come speak with me. He was knowledgeable about a Celiac’s limitations and advised that they now have a designated fryer for their french fries so I could safely order them. They also use 100% ground beef for their burgers (however, they do use bread crumbs for their meatloaf) and, they have gluten-free (Udi’s) buns for their burgers. The food and service were very good.

Absolutely thrilled to have found Black Oak Grill on the app!!! Came here with my husband and 4 kids and everything was fabulous. The manager happened to be at the door when we came in and overheard me ask for a gluten free menu. He came to the table and gave us tips. I had the Buffalo herb wings as an app and the clubhouse sandwich for an entree. Sooooo good and the service was fantastic! We will DEFINITELY be back on future Branson trips!

Dined here for lunch while shopping at the Landing. The manager came and helped me decide on a meal once I told the waitress I had celiac. I had the grilled chicken, mashed potatoes and veggies. It was a good quick meal with no cross contamination issues.

When I told our server I had Celiac she immediately had the manager come to our table. He went over everything on the menu! I ordered the spinach salad with no croutons and substituted a maple pecan (house dressing) dressing for the bacon dressing. It was the best salad I think I have ever had!!!! There were many options but I was in the mood for salad and I’m so glad I was!

They were very accommodating about GF. As others explained the manager came to your table to confirm your GF choices. But the food was very mediocre. My chicken breast was a flash- frozen, thin piece of meat, and warmed up in the same sauce my husbands salmon came with. Boring mashed potatoes and a forgettable veggie. All in all - great GF attention but blah food.

Visited here after reading great GF reviews. The chef came to our table to take my order and after I told him I had celiac and a couple other allergies (sesame, mushroom, shellfish and cranberry) he offered steam Veggies or a salad. I'm thinking this has more to do with a lazy chef (he didn't seem happy about being there) than the restaurant. Too bad a bad employee can ruin a good reputation.

We ate here on vacation in May 2016, I had a hamburger which I told the manager that I was gluten and soy free. The hamburger tasted like it had some kind of seasoning on it, I figured it would be fine, since they knew I could not have any gluten. I was feeling very bad a few hours later and broke out in a celiac rash. Just a warning make sure they don't add seasoning, it could contain gluten.

Yes! This restaurant has nailed gluten free service!! Enjoyable atmosphere, excelling in service, and pretty good food!! The manager went over the menu and most of the menu was an option. They even would bake their wings for an appetizer, and bake fries as a side ... Something's not many other places offer.

The staff was attentive to be sure the chef not only covered gluten free but made adaptations look and taste appealing. We so enjoyed it we are going back before leaving town and will visit anytime we are in Branson and need to dine out. Super appreciate the comfort level of safety here and an enjoyable meal out!!

While finding this restaurant with GPS as a guide was problematic, the food was worth the challenge. There isnt a GF menu but the waitress asked the manager to come to our table. He was knowledgeable about both gluten intolerance and celiac and I felt confident he would make sure my food was prepared correctly. I ordered the salad with battered chicken but asked for it to be grilled. He substituted bleu cheese with goat cheese and eliminated the croutons. It was tasty and very filling--actually more than I could eat. There were many options on the menu that could be made GF. We will definitely eat here again.

We ate dinner here last night. My 11 yo daughter has Celiac disease, I'm gluten intolerant and my husband eats gluten free since we do at home. We had read many reviews so we were excited to eat here. The waiter told us he would get the manager. She suggested we could have any salad without croutons, one appetizer wing option, one steak option, baby back ribs, salmon, pot roast or Rosemary chicken. My daughter chose the pot roast, I had the salmon and my husband had the steak. Everything was delicious. My daughter felt very comfortable with how confident the manager was. Neither my daughter or myself got sick. And if there would have been any single tiny cross contamination issue she would have been vomiting within 15 minutes of eating she is super sensitive. We will be back! Just speak to a manager to go over your options.

We absolutely LOVE this restaurant! Its the 3rd time we've eaten at it since we discovered it back in April 2015. There are many options that are gluten free. If you just ask to speak to a manager they will personally come over and go over all the options with you. They are aware of cross contamination and will tell you any substitutes you can make so that you can safely eat your meal. I highly recommend the rosemary grilled chicken and the pot roast, just ask for no gravy on both. My son had the honey bbq wings and loved them, they will bake them for you along with fries so that its gluten free. I could go on and on about how much we appreciate this option on our Branson vacations. In addition the prices are VERY affordable.

We rarely eat out because of my gluten issues. But, we've just moved to the area and have eaten here three times in the past few months. I have been thoroughly impressed with the staff and food here. Asking about gluten free options gets immediate attention by the manager who knows the difference between gluten avoidance, intolerance, and celiac. When I say, "celiac," stricter options are given--such as having fries baked instead fried in a shared fryer. This is a gem! Highly recommended it!

My wife and I went to Branson on vacation a few weeks ago. Because of the reviews on this app, we went to the Black Oak Grill and had a wonderful time.

Casey, the manager, was VERY knowledgable and his staff was very well trained. He has studied nutrition and was able to recommend current dishes and also was able to make custom orders for us.

I felt safe there, and I rarely say that about anywhere. I felt safe enough to eat there both nights we were there. Definitely celiac friendly!!

General Manager, Casey, was very helpful and knowledgable. Said he actually went to school to be a dietician so he understands Celiac and autoimmune diseases. I had a list of foods a mile long that I can't eat and he helped me navigate the menu. Ended up with the petite sirloin, zucchini and broccoli. By far the best meal I've had in Branson! Would highly recommend!
