On vacation in Gatlinburg, TN. Great food. Manager came out several times to discuss my food and safety and ask how it was. 👍

Our waitress was absolutely fantastic! It was a super busy weekend and she made sure to double check everything since she understood the importance of food restrictions and allergies.

Edit** Came back here 2022 and ate here twice with no issues. The waiter was super helpful and double checked everything, And it was so good that I came back again the same weekend since there’s not too many places to eat in Gatlinburg.

Update for 2023- came back, sooo good and safe.

Both my kids (3 and 5 y/o) have Celiac. There were very little gluten free options on the menu, but the managers were very accommodating. They made separate grilled chicken and shrimp with fruit and broccoli for our kids as kids meals. We were told the chef was notified and their food was prepared fully separately. Very accommodating.

My waiter got the manager as soon as I inquired about GF. The manager pointed to 2 or 3 things I could eat on the menu. The manager communicated with the chef to cook my food safely. We asked to make sure it was not CC on the grill and he assured it wasn’t. I got the Maker’s Mark glazed salmon that came with white rice and broccoli. The glaze had a good flavor but the salmon was over cooked. I did not get sick, which is always a win for me! 5 stars for no gluten CC but I’d give it less stars for the amount of selection. Unless you like salmon or mahi mahi, don’t go here.

We had accidental fish and shrimp. Manager came to the table to discuss what we could order. My daughter is celiac and dairy free so we both ordered the accidental fish and shrimp, but we ordered hers without the butter. It initially came out wrong and we had to send hers back and wait for a new one to be made. My older daughter and I were finished with our food before my younger daughter’s food came out. The food was delicious though. And my youngest daughter said it was definitely worth the wait.

GREAT service! I told my waitress I had allergies and she immediately got a manager. I told the manager what I was thinking about ordering, she spoke with the kitchen and made sure it was possible, and made sure there would be no cross contamination! Love it here. It is a long wait though.

They no longer have a gluten free menu. I was very disappointed when I went there to find out they discontinued it about a month ago due to new distributors and seasonings that contain gluten. The only things they have to offer is plain grilled chicken and a hamburger with no bun.

They don’t have a gf menu, it’s gluten sensitive. However, speak with manager when ordering and she will help. I have shrimp and crab in a dish, didn’t want gf bun. Also fries are gf. I am celiac and no problem and food was delicious.

Our server wasn't sure about GF items but stated that they are not a GF environment and the menu items are 'gluten sensitive' rather than gluten free. I decided to take the risk as I'd seen positive reviews. After ordering the manager came over to assure me they would take precautions as my order was flagged as gluten allergy. I had jenny's surf and turf (grilled salmon and shrimp with steamed rice and broccoli) thinking this was the safest option. It was delicious but unfortunately I was unwell afterwards so there must have been cross contamination somewhere. Maybe I was just unlucky but I wouldn't recommend for celiac. A shame because the food was really yummy.

We felt like it was bit pricey for what you get but we were in Destin looking for seafood and they have GF seafood options. Pretty tasty. Staff was familiar with what menu options were GF. We had the surf and turf as well as the Bourbon St Mahi Mahi with shrimp. Over the past couple years we’ve eaten there a few times now. No issues after the meal.

I have been to about 6 different restaurants of this chain and always have a great time and dinner. There are only 5 different dishes available which are gluten free including salmon, ribeye, Mahi mahi and shrimp. They are all labeled Gluten free on the menu and they are all great. Staff understands about gluten free and I have never had any problems. I would give it 5 stars if it had more options.

Ordered the Chicken/Strawberry Salad. Was very good and had no issues whatsoever. Small selection of GF items but items were clearly marked on menu and server seemed knowledgeable on ensuring there would be no cross contact.

One thing to note was that my salad didn’t come out w/ chicken on it despite it clearly being written on the menu. Then they tried to upcharge me, odd. Weird; but hey, figured I’d mention it.
