Got the Maxx burger with the rosemary parm fries based on pst reviews. What’s anything to write home about and the fries were soggy, and the portion was quite small given the up charge for them. Though I got the creame brûlée for dessert and it did not disappoint!
Staff is super knowledgeable and all GF food comes out on different shapes plates. The fries are in separate fryers so they’re safe and the rosemary Parmesan fries are to die for! The food is not only safe but delicious we’ll definitely be going back!
Burton's is the best GF friendly restaurant in CT. Just about everything on the menu can come GF. The staff is very knowledgeable and GF orders come on a square plate, while non-GF gets a round plate. The fried calamari is my favorite, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
There are two menus. Gluten sensitive and the regular menu. My boyfriend ordered the cauliflower bites for an appetizer. When they arrived the waitress put it down and left before i could make sure they were GF so i waited until she came back to ask. She looked shocked when I asked and said they weren't gluten free. I thought since they were on the regular menu and GS menu they would be safe but I guess you have to be specific. Just make sure you say gluten free in front of everything you order and they're great. Food is delicious too. HIGHLY recommend. Just make sure you're specific. Update: I went again, the waiter i had told me that they had specific plates. Square plates and bowls are GF and round are non GF. Good to know!!!!:)
I went there Saturday night after making a reservation online. We were asked if anyone needed a gf sensitive menu. I can't have gluten or dairy so I asked about choices. Our waitress said they could do pretty much anything gf df because it's made to order. For the first time in years I got fried pickles and calamari! My entree was scallops with a veggie risotto. As my food was delivered each time they reiterated the allergy accommodation saying "gluten free dairy free". I am so impressed with how knowledgeable and considerate this restaurant is and highly recommend. Only disclaimer they gave me was that items that contain dairy are fried in the gf fryer but I'm not that sensitive to dairy so I was fine.
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!
Words cannot describe how wonderful Burtons is about GF food. They have a great, varied GF menu, and they are incredibly diligent about getting it right. Servers won't even carry a GF dish at the same time as a non-GF dish! Burtons can even do most of its kids' menu GF. We have eaten there dozens of times and NEVER had an issue.
I have had the exact same experience as everyone else. Very GF conscious and educated staff, great GF bread, the best GF pasta I have ever had. I had to ask the waitress if it was really GF, it was so good. She explained about the square plates meaning a GF meal. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars!! Love, love, love this place!!!
As others have said, the hostess asked if anyone in party had gluten allergies, didn't have to ask for g-free menu ourselves. Went for lunch after my wife had outpatient procedure since I took the day off. Seated right away, and a server who wasn't even ours, just assisting came over and explained the way g-free works at Burtons. Special square plates and told if it comes out on a plate not square don't eat it. They had calimari!! With cherry peppers!! Cooked perfectly!! Hadn't had that in over 5 yrs. also had max burger with fries cooked in special fryolater for g-free. Waitress and staff very attentive, wonderful meal. Will return soon.
Best restaurant I've ever been to! I'm still dreaming of the delicious food I got here with my husband! We can never find GF restaurants when we're traveling--they were just amazing. They do different shaped plates for GF and non-GF, bring out separate bread (the GF garlic bread was fantastic!), and I had a chicken lemon cream rissotto with pesto dish that was out of this world! Next trip through CT we will DEFINITELY be coming back! :)
Fantastic! The staff is well trained and they go out of their way to accommodate allergies. The even bring gf bread to your table and offer Tito's gf vodka as well. The food is always amazing and I'm pretty picky. If I'm going to pay to eat out it needs to be worth it and it never disappoints.
I had a great first experience here! The food was delicious and made so I could eat it! Staff is way more than willing to accommodate to restrictions/allergies! They offer gluten free bread from a local bakery in MA. They do have both a gluten free and vegetarian menu. Atmosphere is pretty neat too. I highly recommend checking this place out!
WOW! Not only was the food amazing, but the server was so helpful in explaining the gluten free options. It's not in the listing but they also have a dedicated gluten free fryer. It was the first time in two years that I've had clam chowder and it was amazing!
This place is INCREDIBLE!!! I have been here countless times and never have I been disappointed. I usually get the Maxx Burger because it is just so good. GF calamari appetizer is amazing, and the vanilla bean creme brûlée is unbelievable. Chocolate tort was delicious as well, coated with a thick ganache and drizzled with a raspberry or cherry syrup--I cannot remember which. I never worry about cross contamination; they all know their stuff very well! The GF food items come out on "square" plates (more like squares with rounded corners) to distinguish them as GF versus regular items which are served on circular plates. The menu is diverse and there are many options. As far as I can tell there isn't any up charge for items being GF, which is nice! I recommend signing up for the Burton's Loyalty card (free) and every 300 points ($300) you get $25 off. It helps a lot! The prices are higher than a place like Friendly's but to me it is well worth the price. I always feel like I'm getting a deal to eat such incredible food and have it be GF. Burton's is definitely my favorite restaurant, if you haven't checked it out yet hurry up and go!
I've been here twice since going Gluten Free due to health reasons. It was the first meal Id had in months that actually looked just like it's gluten filled counterpart. First off when you walk in they ask you if you would like a gluten free menu. They are very aware, and use separate fryers. Both times I got chicken sandwich on a GF buns and fries. Very good. One word of caution, however, was our waitress messed up and gave me a roll with dairy in it (I also have a dairy allergy). As always, even though they are very in-tune with gluten, if you have other allergies always double and triple check. I'm a little more limited due to my combo gluten-dairy avoidance, but if you just avoid gluten the gluten free menu had lots of great options!
Love this place! Have brought my two toddlers there several times and have had a great experience every time! Great gf kids menu, unbelievable and super delicious adult gf free menu! Gf dinner rolls, gf buns, separate fryer for fries - again, love this place. Risotto is amazing!
I'll echo what other reviewers have said. Burton's is fantastic! The wife and I went for lunch. The atmosphere is great. The staff was super and the food was outstanding. I had the soup of the day southwest veggie and the barbecue chicken salad. The gluten free dinner roll really made it feel like a "real" meal. I agree... Burton's does GF right. 5 stars. We are already planning to take the whole family there for my birthday dinner.
I was traveling through the area and used the app to find this place... what a gem! My daughter and I were coming back from celiac camp in Rhode Island and decided to stay overnight nearby before heading home to Rochester. We decided to go out to dinner and the moment we walked into this place, we knew that it was going to be an exceptional place. They took our cell phone number and told us that we could go and window shop while we waited as the wait would be about 20 minutes. We went to this cute little jewelry store and made a purchase "while we waited" and before you knew it, we were seated. They have a wonderful GF menu with prices listed on it and the menu was filled with appetizers, dinners and even desserts! They brought out oven baked rolls with a garlic butter - FABO!! Where do you get GF rolls? Right here! So tastey! We felt like royalty and praised the waitress for the selection and the rolls. She let us know that the owner is Celiac as well and they have a separate prep area for GF! We ordered fried calamari - delicious and for dinner my daughter had the shrimp scampi with pasta and I had sword fish with hand cut french fries... everything was incredible, even dessert. We selected the vanilla creme brulee..... YUMMY! I can't wait until camp again next year so that we can treat ourselves to dinner here again! Thank you for such a great experience. http://site.burtonsgrill.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/GF-Lunch-July12-WEB.pdf
New restaurant. Founder has celiac, Grill is gluten free, dedicated fryer, Kids menu, pasta, chicken tenders, fries 90% of their menu is gluten free. We have been back several times and daughter never gets sick. Trust burtons 100% Regular and GF menus are almost identical with minor differences. Love burtons!
Wow!!! Just wow! Gluten free menu, amazing staff that is actually trained about Celiac Disease, understands the seriousness of being careful, and cares. By far the best restaurant experience I’ve ever had with gluten free. I ate so much I’m stuffed and happy!!
Amazing calimari!!! Plus they have gf rolls. Friendly staff. Make reservations as they get very busy.
Amazing! Sat at the bar as we had no reservations. We were immediately greeted and asked about food allergies, as was everyone else served near us. Our food came out separately as my hubby isn't gf, from different directions. I asked if they had dedicated area for allergens and was told yes. I'm not CD, but severely intolerant and was fine. Our friends whose children have peanut and tree nut allergies also eat here without difficulty. And might I mention, the food was delicious???
This place is incredible. They have a huge gluten free menu that makes you feel like you never have to miss out on anything again. The gluten free fried fish sandwich with fried pickles on top is amazing.
Great restaurant! They had a large gluten free menu and a separate fryer so I could enjoy some fries too! I ate at the bar and the bartender was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu including pointing out items that might have other allergens in case I had other sensitivities.
I have eaten here several times since they opened. It is so comforting to know how seriously they take gluten free and that they have good protocol to provide a safe meal. The food is excellent. They have a great gluten free focaccia with herb butter to start off the meal. I love the calamari and had a delicious lobster risotto. Their chicken risotto is also quite good as are their burgers and steaks. Everything is good and if you really want to indulge the seven layer chocolate cake is worth the calories. I am so happy they have this new location. Now if I could only get them to expand to the Cape (Falmouth please).
The staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating for gluten free (and other allergies). Right when you come in, they ask if anyone needs a gluten free menu. The waiter told us that they take allergy prep very seriously, and someone else brought out my gluten free plate. They have a dedicated gluten free fryer, so I was able to take some of my boyfriend’s fries! (We asked for them on a separate plate.) I had the orecchiette pasta. The pasta was a bit over cooked, but I loved the sauce and the stuffed zucchini. They have a lot of gf options! Even cocktails are listed on the gf menu!
Celiac-friendly and the entire staff know about celiac and cross contamination. Separate GF menu with delicious fare, fresh fish, risotto, steak, chicken, black bean burgers, regular burgers, salads, quinoa and veggie dishes. GF CHOCOLATE CAKE AND FLAN for desserts... the CEO of this company has celiac and I LOVE THIS RESTAURANT!!!! So much love for this place which also, btw, strives to have autism friendly dining experiences for families with autism. It’s SO NICE to not have to be that asshole with the gluten issue and be communicated with clearly and respectfully. My flan was so good that I asked the waiter to double check that it had no flour. He got eye level with me and said he was certain it is GF and will get the chef to come talk to me if I wanted. That was enough reassurance for me. Didn’t get sick of course, but Wow... they were totally ready for my worry and able to do anything to make me feel safe. And FULL. :-)
This place takes food allergies very seriously! They have a great gf menu!!! Always make sure you get a square plate. We’ve eaten here many times and have had great experiences. They even made a mistake once on the dairy free and handled it so well. I highly recommend this place.
My wife has a ton of food restrictions and Burtons was nearly as good as an upscale Disney restaurant at being able to accommodate her. Also, their GF calamari was really good. Probably the most accommodating restaurant we’ve been to in CLT.
So happy to have found this place and wish they would open one in Chicago or even better NW Indiana! I got the General tso’s cauliflower and the crab cakes. The manager brought my food out to me and confirmed gluten free due to Celiacs! And my waitress was so good at explaining the precautions taken.
It's a safe haven with great food. 3rd time being at a Burtons, 1st time at this location. I have Celiac and it's wonderful to feel comfortable ordering food and it being gluten free. They have always been very good at that, and their food is great. Desserts change periodically so you might get the typical chocolate cake or something else. Tonight we had chocolate crème brulé. We didn't care for the chocolate. Nothing wrong with their dessert, just turns out we don't like chocolate crème brulé. In any case, definitely a recommend.
This place is amazing. I’ve been here 5 times since moving to town, and the maxx burger and fries is so good that I haven’t even tried anything else yet. Extensive gluten free menu, and absolutely delicious. Safe kitchen practices for Celiacs. The only con is that I don’t think they have any GF dessert (but I’m always too full to ask!)
I was blown away at this restaurant! Went the other night when visiting Charleston and the care and service is amazing! Shane, the GM, Personally brought out gf bread and explained my options and checked on us throughout the meal! He was amazing! I got the half chicken and my mom got the risotto and both were amazing and safe! They have separate areas! Everything is cooked to order. Also, you have to get the gf chocolate cake. It was homemade and amazing! All around amazing experience!
As a celiac this was life changing! From the moment we walked in and were asked if anyone needed a gluten free menu I knew this place was special! Christine (our server) was knowledgeable, efficient, friendly...just the best! The food was phenomenal! The staff was amazing! I cannot day enough good things about burton’s! We will definitely be back and cannot wait to visit the location(s) in Charlotte.
I’ve eaten at 2 different Burtons now. They were both delicious. This one in Nashua provided the same compassion and understanding of gluten intolerance and celiac as the last. What our waiter didn’t know he would gladly check on for us. He educated me about the origin of Burtons. It was started by a man with celiac and he wanted those afflicted to have a great dining option. I had the cod stuffed with crabmeat over a bed of steamed green beans and herbed jasmine rice with a lemon sauce drizzle. My daughter had the fried fish sandwich and fries. She was so excited to have a fried fish sandwich. It had been s long time for her. The GM came by during our meal to check on us and find out if we were pleased. I would recommend this burton’s to everyone. By the way, they even have GF bread they brought to the table.
The owner has Celiacs and the amount of care they take here for others with this issue is just not seen anywhere else. I have never seen a staff so knowledgeable about gluten before. This is our new go to for a nice night out.
Burtons is one of those places where you can go eat and never worry. Dining like before you had Celiac disease. I have been here countless times and the food is fantastic, you have separate menus and the peace of mind is priceless. Burger buns are so so but the wings and fries are out of this world.
It pains me to give Burtons one star. We have been loyal and happy customers since 2012 (started going in Massachusetts). But it pains my husband even more. As soon as we got home he became sick, definitely glutened with bad pains. Burtons was always the one place we thought we could trust to handle gluten allergies safely. This is so frustrating.
Amazing! staff was so great and understanding of allergies. They offered a gluten free menu at the door with many of the same options as the regular dinner menu with modifications. My meal of gluten free pasta was amazing, I got a gluten free roll, and the desert of gluten free chocolate cake was unbelievable!! Loved it! Go there!
The Mediterranean Chicken Risotto was simply amazing. They ask if anybody needs a gluten free menu right away and how many gf menus are needed. The waiter double checked himself to make sure I needed gluten free and I didn’t have any other allergies or sensitivities. A different waiter brought out my food from my husband saying “gluten free risotto?” when they got to the table which I loved because I always feel like I need to ask if it is gluten free just to make sure they know to treat it with a little extra love. We are traveling to the beach and I already told my husband we are stopping on the back for lunch!
As others have said gf menu with lots to choose from, and they use a second server and style of dishes for keeping the gf items gf. I had the burger and fries and was in heaven. It’s been over ten years since I have had restaurant style French fries. Yum!
By far the best (and safest) place to eat in Alexandria! Such great food, they take cross contamination seriously and we always have a great experience. Great food! Lunch staff isn’t as good as their dinner staff but still a good experience.
We have a Very sensitive celiac. She Ate here and had excellent gluten free crab cakes! Staff asks if we want gf menu as we come in and since it’s a scratch kitchen, they are able to handle gf and other allergens really well. Loved it.
amazing food and quick service, the staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and there were only a couple menu items that couldn’t be modified to be gluten free. i highly recommend the pork chop and the calamari! we are traveling and made a pit stop at burtons, otherwise we would definitely return. a must-eat in charlottesville if you are gluten free!!
