Love that I can have fries! Good variety, very nice and accommodating staff. Gluten free pizza crust is one of the better ones in the area.

Update: their pizza is no longer celiac friendly. Waiter took the time to double check and verify. Still worth visiting for all the other amazing items on the menu!

Yes! They were very thorough and I had no reaction! The waitress went over the many menu options. I chose the pizza. The chef came out to tell me that even though they took many precautions, the pizzas were cooked in the same oven so there was a chance of cross contamination if I was celiac. I was very impressed with their diligence. I went with the pizza and had no reaction. This is my new favorite restaurant!!!

Waited 30 minutes for a milk shake and fries, after 70 minutes of waiting on our food we left! We got the poor excuse of being busy but less than half the tables were full. All the food we saw being brought out was taken back

Lots of gf entrees on the menu. We had a delicious meal there...Cocoa and coffee encrusted Wild Boar was excellent as too was the grilled swordfish with risotto. It was restaurant week and all of the entrees were or could be made Gf. The salads were very good too with fresh lettuce, goat cheese, dried cherries, and apples. Next time I will try the gf crab cakes as I rarely see them on a menu. The waiter told us about a regular customer that buys 8 crab cakes every time they come in...some for dinner and some to take home. This location was fun as well, overlooking a large park. Seating outside was available too. I'm not a celiac, but I felt confident ordering after talking to the waiter. If you want to be extra cautious, ask for a table where you can watch them prepare the food.

I have celiac's but I am not real sensitive so I can't speak to that issue. The menu had many gluten free options from entrees to desserts, more selection than most restaurants. The food was delicious, I had pork chop with sweet potato brûlée and carrot cake with carrot-ginger sorbet. We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere and the staff was attentive and knowledgeable. If I lived in the area, I think it would be a regular spot!

Brown Dog Cafe is amazing. They catered our rehearsal dinner and the food was incredible. They were so helpful in communicating with me beforehand about what was and wasn't GF. They had such a wide selection that we were able to make the whole dinner GF. I sometimes still think about how delicious the Port Poached Pear Salad was. Can't wait to actually eat in the restaurant!

Excellent gluten free food, excellent service and excellent location. Chef came over to our table to say that the polenta was nominally gluten free but is made in a facility that could make food with gluten and were we that sensitive. When we said yes they changed the dish to accommodate the celiac. That made us feel at ease and very welcome. All desserts and most main meals are gluten free. The setting of Summit Park meant we went for a nice stroll after the meal. Awesome place with nice atmosphere.
