    HOLY SMOKES THIS PLACE WAS FANTASTIC! It was the first restaurant we tried in Boston and it was so good we went back for lunch the next day! The warm lobster roll was delicious- the bread was incredibly soft and the lobster was so fresh. The french fries were phenomenal and I fell in love with the house pickles. But what really made this experience next-level is that as I ordered off the gluten-free menu the waitress asked "is that preference or an allergy?" They did this each of the times we were there, and as a Celiac it completely put my mind at ease. A fantastic experience all the way around.

    GF buns available for lobster roll and said fries were fried in separate fryer. I really enjoyed it and the service at the bar was great. Drinks: had Redbridge bottles available when I went. Also had a few ciders available in addition to wine and liquor.

    Good gluten free items on the menu. I had a lobster roll with gluten free bread and fries with a gluten free cider on tap! The bathrooms are pretty luxurious as well.

    A few good brunch options, but service was terrible. Mostly meat or shellfish, but they did have gluten free bread. I had the breakfast sandwich without bread or cheese. The waiter was so inattentive I was worried, but I didn't get sick.

    Great experience! The gf menu had so many offerings that it was hard to choose- not my usual situation! The potatoes au gratin are amazing!

    We went for dinner on a Friday night. If you want a loud happening place go here. We were hoping for something a bit quieter. They lost out reservation but found us a table in about 10 mins. I had the polenta fries which were great and a steak with gratin potatoes and mushrooms. The steak was huge, potatoes good but the mushrooms had absolutely no flavor. Drinks were really overpriced in my opinion. Overall ok but not with what we paid.

    My husband surprised me with lunch in this restaurant a couple of weeks ago to celebrate my promotion at work and it was one of the best gluten free meals I have had since being diagnosed with celiac since 2007! First of, they have a gluten free menu and not just their regular menu minus the meals with pasta/bread. It's actually quite opposite. It also includes the burgers/sandwiches with gluten free buns. I had the Chilled lobster roll and it was to die for. My husband had the Creamy carnaroli risotto which I also tried and we both thought it was cooked wonderful. Very happy to have found this place.

    We visited on a Sunday of a holiday weekend. Our server was very knowledgeable about Celiac disease & cross contamination & warned us that when it gets busy the kitchen will use the "dedicated" fryer for everything so he didn't feel comfortable saying the fries, wings or anything fried on the gluten free menu was truly safe. We did have delicious salmon, cod & daughter enjoyed her cheeseburger. There were no GF desserts & our server informed us he had checked with the chef & none of the sorbets or ice creams were gluten free for celiac. I first have 4 stars instead of 5 because of my disappointment about the fryer & dessert situation but changed to 5 star because everything was fresh, flavorful & it is truly valuable to have a server who takes Celiac & gluten free concerns seriously so you can eat without any worries.

    This was the best burger I've had in a long time. I kept looking at the gluten free bun wondering if it really was gluten free because it held up and tasted good - which is a rare find. The price was a tad excessive for a burger, but the food was good, and I didn't get sick. I will visit again in the future if I am in the area. Bonus, the fryer is a dedicated fryer so I was able to eat the french fries!

    Excellent food but a little pricey. Went for lunch and had the burger and was amazed. Bun was quite good and didn't fall apart!

    Ug! What a bust. I selected this restaurant for it's gluten free menu and range of regular food options. The service was slow, despite what I would consider to be an average Saturday night crowd. The burger was ok (though yes gluten free), they were out of the ribeye steak, and my daughter's food had a hair in it. These things happen, I understand that - but when we notified the server, she simply whisked the food away and brought a check without that plate on the invoice. As we paid, she said "sorry about that" and then the matter was done. Overall - the ambience was nice, but tried too hard to be a cross between a foodie hang out and a sports bar. Not recommended.

    Delicious!! Very concerned about accommodating to gluten friendly clientele. Great food and great service. Upscale casual.
