Felt very safe eating here, and felt very normal.
Great place for Gluten Free. So many options and they take it very seriously. They have a separate kitchen space too. Paleo Menu now too (June 2016)
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.
Huge selection of GF and knowledgeable staff. Had a great meal.
gf df calamari!!! huge menu really fresh!!
Amazing food and service. Thank you. My favorite restaurant in Va Beach.
Favorite gf place hands down. I dream about the calamari and chocolate torte dessert
the best meal. we had the fried calamari and bang bang shrimp. I also had a cup of the she crab soup and the fish and chips dinner. I subbed the garlic parmesan chips for the plain fries. it was great. the breading is a corn meal / corn flour mix.
This place is a must while in Virginia Beach! Staff was very knowledgeable and hubby even had his own dinner roll! Very impressed!
They now have GF she-crab soup which I haven't had for 15 years. It was amazing.
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.
The most AMAZING gf restaurant I have ever been to! I wish they had one back home. I go every time I visit Virginia beach. The staff is awesome as well!! Would highly recommend :)
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.
Gluten Free Utopia!! Finally bread served with dinner again and many choices such as fish & chips or delicious sandwiches. Fantabulous!
Options galore! Tito for Martinis, 1 true GF beer, beautiful setting, just awesome!
Amazing food, that's also gluten free. THANK YOU! Celiac approved.
I can't say enough good!!! Gluten free fried calamari, risotto, blue cheese chopped salad and chocolate torte!!!!!
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 place is amazing. Do not miss it.
I loved this place! I just moved here not to long ago, and I tried this place during restaurant week and fell in love with it and so did my husband. We both got the gluten free cheese burger and fries and salad. It was so tasty!
I was visiting from out of town....the Food was great, Have the beer battered Fish...Super Yummy!
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.
Delicious battered fish!
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!
The food, service, atmosphere, and GF selections are excellent! The staff is very knowledgable of gluten and other food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities.
Love this place!!! They know how to do it right here. Can not say enough good about it!
The best place at VA beach to eat!! They were able to accommodate my whole GF family. It was amazing and the food was fabulous!
Great food and great service. Very large portions. They also carry a nice list of local beer (not gluten free of course).
They totally cater to celiacs and other food allergies!! They have a system that assures the customer they gave received the gluten free items. Our server Vivian was so helpful!!!! Plus the food is delicious!!! And their gluten free menu is LARGE!
Love this place!! Great GF menu. Didn't have to have the "pep talk" with anyone. They accommodated my entire GF family. My kids (7&9) have never had a dinner roll.
Best GF we could find in VA Beach. Excellent menu choices. Very knowledgable staff. Food is awesome. I even got a GF dinner roll while my husband got his. I can't say enough about how GF friendly Burton's is.
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.
My tummy is happy! Loved the GF calamari, and the Mediterranean chicken was wonderful :) the creme brulee was also just prefect
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! :-)
Great menu and food. Very knowledgeable staff. Would highly recommend it!
They know gluten free for sure! Awesome fresh food too. Yummy gluten free rolls too. Update: March 2014 Still an awesome place to dine
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.
Love their gf rolls. The butter upsets my stomach though. I love their calamari! I never thought I would have it again! Such a nice place :)
Best gluten free restaurant I have EVER IN MY ENTIRE LIFE been to! They have gf rolls! Definitely worth every penny.
I love this place!
Square plate is Gf, round is not, awesome service, extremely knowledgable wait staff, Fabulous menu with many options mainly fish, also chicken and beef, fried calamari, dedicated fryer for French fries, all delicious, upscale but kid friendly.
ok this is one of my favorite place's and one of the best for an educated staff! they use square plates fir gf meals versus round for non. High quality food. enjoy this one is really good. did I mention fried calamari? :)
This is my go-to gf restaurant. Their salmon piccata is on point!
Amazing! They take good care of you! Free gf roll as a starter. They have gf burger buns and quite a few tasty options.
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!
Great GF menu. This is the first place I have eaten at where they actually asked if we needed a GF menu before I asked for it. Great service.
You need to eat here if you are gluten free! Very knowledgeable. They even have gluten free bread.
My ultimate fav!! I have driven 2hrs just to have dinner here! They are very familiar with gluten free and offer items you cannot get anywhere else.
I was SOOO excited to eat here again. We were last at this location about a month ago (after eating at the one in VA Beach years ago), and while they're a bit pricey, the food was amazing and left me craving more. Well, this time was not the same experience. We have been repeatedly told that they 'take food allergies very seriously' (and the waiter for another table used same words this time too- not our waiter though). The service was awful. We got dirty cups, with 1 refill after sitting in heat on patio (would have brought it up to server, but couldn't find him). Non GF rolls brought to table and as an after thought, a GF one was offered. It made it to table right before food showed up. All food was run together, and while we noticed the plate shape was different, we were previously educated that only managers run 'food allergy' plates and they NEVER come out with other food. Not the case with this order. I was going to mention it, but I was hot and hungry, and our waiter disappeared, so we started digging in. Thats when we discovered that 'medium well'- even with a "no pink" center explaination from the hubby, got me a hamburger that was mostly 'medium', with some parts 'medium rare', and the staff agreed. (not my waiter at time, bc he never showed back up- my fam was almost DONE eating when I flagged down a different server and explained what happened). They did offer to make it right by bringing soup or a salad, something quick so I could finish up eating with my fam, but I ordered a burger bc I wanted actual food. And to top it off, idk if it's the roll, the fries or the tiny bit of burger I ate, but something glutened me. SO very disppointed. I was so happy to have found an amazing place, that took great strides to ensure the most 'allergy friendly' food possible, but after the cruddy service and the "we're gonna discount your food off the bill"- uh, no joke. We still paid $50 for 1 adult, 2 kids and I got to go home hungry. We won't be making that mistake again.
We were visiting Charlottesville for the day and first went to the historic mall thinking it would be a good place to find dinner but then left and drove to Burton's Grill because of the high ratings on TripAdvisor and on Find Me Gluten Free. Our waitress, Diamond, was awesome. Two of the four of us are gluten free and they wanted friend pickles after seeing them on the gluten free menu on a sandwich. Diamond said no problem and had some made for us as an appetizer. Everyone's food was good. Between is we had the short+rib grilled cheese sandwich, the California chicken sandwich (GF bun), maple chicken sandwich (GF bun), and salmon with slaw. Nobody was disappointed. Diamond even brought out GF Udi's rolls for the two that are GF (in addition to the normal bread/pesto plate). Wish this chain was up in Michigan!
The Cobb salad I ordered was Celiac safe, however it was VERY small and was mainly lettuce. Would not eat here because the portions were very small and the prices were expensive for what you get
We had a wonderful meal Thursday night. Our waitress, Elizabeth, was amazing! She did a phenomenal job navigating our special diets. Two of us have Celiac Disease. Burton's Grill does a great job keeping us gluten free and safe from cross contamination. They really know what they are doing. Burton's uses square plates to designate special diets/allergies. They have an extensive menu. The owner has Celiac Disease and has done a great job educating the staff. It's very rare to find a restaurant with such a knowledgeable kitchen and wait staff. Thanks Elizabeth and Burton's Grill! We will definitely be back!
What a wonderful experience! Not once did i have to be worried about my allergy while dining here. An extensive and deliciously separate gf menu. The plates are coordinated (circular for regular dishes- square for allergies) to ensure the kitchen keeps them all straight. Only managers and staffers with the permission of the exec.chef are allowed to serve the meals for allergen sensitive people. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and the "all from scratch" cooking approach allowed the kitchen to be exceptionally accommodating for my allergy and pregnancy dietary needs. The food was delicious and i will definitely return here until I've samples the whole menu! I didn't get sick and was never worried that i would. The atmosphere was clean and upscale but also down to earth. The restrooms were super clean. Amazing all the way around!
This restaurant has lots of gluten free options. They have a dedicated frier for gluten free items. The manager brings the gluten free food out separately. I ordered the Memphis dry rub wings as an appetizer (my first time eating gf wings out!) and street tacos as my meal. Both were delicious! As a celiac I was a bit worried when the manager called the gluten free food "gluten sensitive," (I get sick very easily) but nonetheless I did not have any problems eating here. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. I would definitely go back here!
One of the best gluten free restaurants in the country! They ask you at the front door if anyone in the party needs a gf menu. A manager delivers the gf meal on a different shaped plate. They always have so many options and they're all delicious. My boyfriend loves this place, too, and he's not gf. This place is my go to in Charleston, don't pass it up!
If there were more stars I would give even more!! Gluten free menu is plentiful and varied with every item amazing! Staff VERY well versed in all GF needs and very pleasant and helpful. Dedicated cooking areas, fryers etc. even many GF desserts to choose from!! Best we've ever found!! Don't miss it!
The food was delicious! I am both celiac and lactose intolerant and they were very accommodating to both. The staff were super knowledgeable and checked with the kitchen before and after we ordered. There is even a designated fryer and gluten free breaded items. This is probably the only place I've seen gluten free fried calamari and it was excellent, as was the risotto. I had no reaction and this is a newly diagnosed celiac must try!
Best celiac-friendly restaurant in the area!
Extensive GF menu. Dedicated fryer. Crab cakes, fries, calamari- all great. The best place we've found for mixed families (some with allergies or intolerances, some have none). Outside felt casual. Inside is where we'd go if we didn't have kids with us. Great service. Felt safe.
Outstandingl - had dinner here last evening with our family and hubby (who was diagnosed with Celiac last year) enjoyed a fantastic dinner. His GF menu was almost equal in size and choices as the regular menu. He enjoyed fried calamari for the first time in over a year. The whole family enjoyed and we ordered extra for the table. Not only GF, the calamari were extremely tender. Everyone,including our 7 year old Grandson, enjoyed a great dinner. Our server Nick was great as well as being knowledgeable about Celiac. We so recommend this restaurant and t will be our go to spot when visiting our children who live in area. Thank you Burtons!
Can't say enough good things! Labeling and staff knowledge were impressive. Lots of variety! I had a chicken risotto which was delicious and I had their gluten free dessert trio which I would highly recommend! Even my family, who do not have dietary restrictions, loved their food.
Hands down best place we have ever gone to dinner and been able to eat at without any allergy reactions! The staff is very knowledgeable about their food and about food allergies and more than willing to find out for sure with anything they're not 100% positive about. Highly recommend!!!
It's so nice finding a restaurant that offers more than just GF burgers or pizza! I had the crab cakes (yes! Crab cakes!) and chose a cocktail from their GF-labeled drinks menu. They label everything as "Gluten Sensitive," but I do feel this place is celiac friendly. They're GIG-certified, maintain separate fryers, & the staff is very knowledgeable. Even the host asked us "would anyone like a GF menu tonight?" As a bonus, they offer paleo & vegetarian menu choices.
BEST gluten-free options in town! I am a local and come here at least once a week. Great management and they are very careful about any cross contamination. 99% of the regular menu is safe for celiacs. Buns, fries, even fried chicken tenders and calamari! Love this place, and even my non-GF friends and fiancé rave about the food!
even brought us a GF roll before dinner!
Amazing! So celiac friendly. They cater to allergies! I had fried cauliflower and a chicken sandwich with onion straws and fries. So great!
Yummy pesto bread and dip to start. Amazing burger and fries!
This location is spot on and is always consistent. We frequent here and have become friendly with the staff and managers over time. I always get an amazing meal and the staff is educated on celiac and will accommodate. They even have an array of GF desserts! Highly recommend this location!
