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.

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.

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.

Good GF menu (although a screen shot of the till display, airdropped to my phone!) and server across GF and fully explained what I could have. Eaten with no problem. No gf desserts apart from plain ice cream.

Very good! Lots of options and knowledgeable staff. Menu isn’t marked but the staff can tell you what is/isn’t available gluten free. I had Jennys surf and turf which was grilled salmon and grilled shrimp (no turf lol) with, I think, a butter glaze. A side of perfectly cooked broccoli and some jasmine rice. My son had grilled mahi mahi and mashed potatoes. His potatoes were really flavorful - cheesy or seasoned idk but really good. His was supposed to come with a carrots that the server said were not gluten free. Fun atmosphere and everything was excellent

The server was educated on exactly which items could be prepared gluten free. My daughter has celiac. The fries are able to be prepared GF but they will come with no seasoning. They had mahi mahi and at least 5 other gluten free menu items besides the salads. The items are not marked gluten free on the menu but the staff is well prepared.

I got the Bourbon Street Mahi Mahi (Charbroiled Cajun spiced Mahi Mahi with Bourbon Sauce and Grilled Shrimp, served over Mashed Potatoes). Very good, no issues.

Waitress seemed somewhat knowledgeable hence the 4 stars and not 5; however, she mentioned she didn't know much about GF (in regards to the sides the main dishes come with) but when she put in my order it would let her know if anything wasn't safe. She knew enough to tell me 5 or 6 things that were safe.. When I called prior to visiting, the host seemed knowledgeable and told me how to order.
