It was good, but was disappointed after eating at a Burtons last year on our trip. Waitress said they changed the menu. Didn't seem to be as many GF options as before. No stuffed zucchini on the new menu. Had chicken artichoke Risoto and it was good.

Had fish and chips. Excellent. Haven't had those since been GF. Staff very knowledgeable on gluten free needs. Manager brings plate to you. GF food served on square plates so there is no confusion. Will go back.

My FAVORITE gluten free restaurant.

They take it very seriously here. They have separate cook area so it's hard to have cross contamination.

I love the fish and chips

They have great menu and even have special gluten free events.

AMAZING!! I can't tell you how happy I was to find this place on our vacation. The owner is celiac, they have a separate kitchen for allergies, they have a LAMINATED actual GF menu not a paper print off, and everyone knows about all sorts of allergies not just GF. I had restaurant french fries for the first time in a year and a half and loved every second. I only wish I didn't live four hours away. Definitely give this place a try!!!

This restaurant has excellent service and a full GF menu, as well as GF beer and cider. The GF rolls are amazing. We had an amazing brunch this morning. If you call ahead a day or so, they will make a batch of gluten free pancakes just for you on Sunday morning.

If I could give it 6 stars, I would. Designated kitchen space and highly trained staff. We were told the owner's wife has celiac. These people know what they're doing. Even better, the food is the most awesome stuff ever!! We ended up going back 2 nights in a row. Even the kids begged to return. Best kids menu I've ever seen and only $7. If you don't go, you're missing out!

This was the most accommodating place I've ever been to! EXTENSIVE gf menu, extremely knowledge staff, AND all of the gf items cane on square plates (as opposed to round for non gf). Food was outstanding, and they had free gf bread before the meal and gave is some fresh pieces to take home when we left.

Best gluten free friendly meal we have had in a long time. Calamari was delicious. My husband was thrilled to find gluten free fish and chips. On the expensive side but if you are looking for a nice dinner with good food and great service I highly recommend it.

So wonderful!! My sister, gf AND vegetarian, was thrilled to be handed a separate menu!

They have a new deal as well, 1/2 price burgers Sunday-Thursday from 3-6. It was great and allowed our family of seven to keep from breaking the bank! :-)

We have had another excellent gluten free dining experience at Burton’s. This restaurant does not disappoint. Any other restaurant offering gluten free selections should aim for the standard set by this restaurant. This is the second time we have dined at Burton’s, and in a different location. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and the food is out of this world good! This visit I had some of the best gluten free pasta I have tasted so far. Keep up the good work Burton’s! You are light years ahead of the rest. Oh, and please open some restaurants in Pennsylvania.

Great restaurant! Most of their menu is naturally gluten free, they understand cross contamination, their fryers are not cross contaminated, and overall just very knowledgeable. Waitress said that the owner (or might have been manager, can't remember which one) has celiac disease. I highly recommend!

Server was amazing. Very clear details on various allergies (specifically for me, dairy, egg, and nut free, including the gluten free). He was very detailed and ensured our visit was on point. Food comes out on different style plate and the person bringing it out specifies what allergens were left out of the plate. The food was delicious and service was great. Was visiting in Charleston, SC. Would go again. For sure!

Our server was Cameron, thanks sir!

I’ve eaten here many times and never had an issue. They take allergies very serious and ask the table if anyone has any allergies before they take orders. I am celiac and allergic to eggs and they always can accommodate me with no issues. Dedicated fryer is always a bonus. Probably my favorite place to eat in cville.

The most gluten/allergy friendly place in the area. They are well trained, and take food allergies extremely seriously (not just gluten). On top of that, you’d never know it’s gluten free! My favorite restaurant in Mt. Pleasant! The joys of eating breaded or fried foods, and knowing it’s safe is, is the best reward. Great desserts, too!
