Our waiter started off the meal asking about allergies. From that point on he was super knowledgeable about what I could eat. He even had a spreadsheet he pulled up to verify everything! They even have a dedicated fryer!
I ordered a burger and salad-delicious! Good gf bun, dedicated gf fryers if you want fries, and my server and the host were knowledgeable about gf/celiac need for safe food prep. You’ll want to have a quick convo about your needs upfront before ordering. The menu doesn’t list gf options but the server told me everything I needed to know. Celiac
I ordered the Waldorf and the Pickle Board and the manager checked to see if it was all gluten free and it was. Very nice. There are gluten free options.
It's a brewery, but has a full bar.
Dedicated fryer for their chips (delicious), GF buns (a little dry), GF substitutions for their beer cheese.
Overall, a good experience for this Celiac.
Absolutely Terrible. Not Gf at all
I joined my SO for a brewery tour. With the tour came accompanied food and drink pairing. They catered to my restrictions beautifully. For my drink I had the option of cider or wine. I also was given a pickled veggie board. 3 types of pickles, tomatillo, and a sweet potato mixture. I also received beef tenderloin with potatoes and smoked broccoli. My dessert was cheesecake in a bowl with whipped cream with crisped rice (no gluten - made in-house) Everything was quite good. Also knowledgeable of Celiac. Great attitudes. Had no ill effects the next day. Would go back.
Bluejacket is a great time. For the "normals" in my group who could appreciate beer safely and have all the food it was a good casual time. For me, it was initially stressful but then delightful. the fact that it is a brewery restaurant was anxiety inducing initially but ended up not being a problem. I had the burger with a gluten free bun and fries, and it was great! The atmosphere was relaxed and cozy in the evening, but I have seen it upbeat and energetic prior to a baseball game for a pregame. I will visit again for both dinner and for a Nats pregame.
tl;dr - good burger with gluten free bun. good atmosphere. near the ballpark. would visit again.
Can't fault a restaurant for trying, but the gluten-free bun was extremely big. Made the burger hard to eat. Fries and chickpeas both fried in same oil as breaded items, so you have to get a salad with your burger. Overpriced at $14+Tip.
Food is poor. Takes WAY too long to get food from the kitchen. GF bun is horrible - texture is like a Schar bun. Horrible. Will never be back.
Went in not knowing what to expect, prepared to order a burger without the bun. Not only did our server know what a gluten allergy was, she told us they offer a gluten-free brioche bun!! They also brought out the most delicious fried chickpeas instead of bread at the beginning of the meal.
