I have been gluten free for 7 years, and this has been and will remain the best gluten free restaurant I’ve ever been to. They are so accommodating, the place is gorgeous and their food is delicious.
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.
Amazing celiac friendly options and no chance of cross contamination because of the seperate kitchen space. Definitely my go to spot! Every server I've had here is great, which only adds to this establishment.
Awesome food! Celiac friendly! Gluten free bread is delicious
The gluten free menu has lots of delicious options. The burgers are especially great!
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!!!!:)
Hands down the best restaurant I have been to for people with allergies. The wait staff was phenomenal and checked to make sure everything was safe for me to eat. I highly recommend!
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!
Have celiac. Have had problems about half the time I go this place. I think they have some cross contamination issues going on.
Offered a GF menu upon arrival and then brought out GF bread!!! I had a fried fish sandwich and it was delicious :)
The only time I have ever been offered a gluten free menu by a hostess! Gluten free bread for munching and an extensive GF menu to choose from. It was delicious and worth repeating.
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.
One of the only restaurants where I've consistently gotten truly gluten free food, including fries! They have a dedicated fryer. I love their fish sandwich, so yummy! Also they always include a piece of gluten free bread when I do takeout.
Had a wonderful lunch! They had a number of great GF options. I had the firecracker shrimp and the fish tacos. It was a 1 1/2 hour ride there and it was worth it. Highly recommend!
always safe here as a celiac. TONS of menu options, all delicious. I am never dissapointed.
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!!!
fabulous food. large menu choices.
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 GF restaurant that I've been to in CT by far!! Excellent service and very friendly staff.
My favorite gluten free place to eat! Always my first choice!! Amazing!!
Best gluten free menu around! Always my first choice for dinner!
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.
One of my all time gluten free favorites!!!
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 was the best gf food expirence I've ever had . My son and daughter are severely allergic to gluten . The options were amazing and the food quality /service was exceptional . I would definetly make the hour drive just to eat here again
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!
Love this place! Prices are the same for gluten free as regular menu items. Selection is excellent, food amazing & service is stellar.
Awesome place, if you're gluten free I highly recommend. Really friendly staff and delicious food!
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!
We went this past weekend. It is celiac awareness month, so they had some special dishes. I had one of the best gluten free chicken parmesan dinners! It rivaled any Non gluten free version I have ever eaten. Please put this on the regular menu!
Had the Chicken Piccata. Most flavorful gf meal to date! the gf rolls are so great I ordered a second helping. Bravo and THANK YOU from the bottom of my newly-gluten free heart!!
The food was awesome and the staff was great and very helpful.
Best food gf ever! Love the fish and chips! Dedicated fryer
I had the Mediterranian chicken for lunch with spinach and risotto. GF roll as well. Everything comes on square plates so they don't confuse with non-GF, which comes on round ones. Great meal.
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.
This place is the best! Extremely gluten free friendly, lots of great items to choose from and simply delicious! I highly recommend going here!
Dedicated menus and plates to show gf so you know it's done right. Great food and staff very helpful.
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
I refer to Burtons Grill in all of my reviews of other restaurants because Burtons does gluten free right. This approach has lead to repeat business and happy referrals to other diners both gluten-free and "normal". Burtons approach does not make me feel like a second-class citizen, like other restaurants do. I am at ease and not in fear of receiving food that will hurt me while eating at Burtons. Give it a try.
Many gluten-free options. I tried the ahi tuna burger. It was super delicious. It was like ceviche on a gluten-free bun. The fries were over seasoned and over salted, so I will ask them to go light on that in the future. Make sure that you emphasize gluten-free, because one day I did take out, and I am fairly certain that they gave me a regular bun by mistake. The service is really great, and the manager was awesome in responding to my concerns.
Fantastic gf menu. Great food and gf beer. I like how they put all the gf food on square plates and regular food on round plates. Puts me at ease. Try the gf calamari.
Very good food and three different gluten free beers. The owner is celiac and has created as gear gluten free menu as a result
Fantastic experience- perfect for gluten free/allergy friendly dining without feeling awkward/uncomfortable- perfect for business meals or dating- the new Burton's in Shrewsbury knocks it out of the park with a great atmosphere and excellent service. Variety of menu options with a from scratch kitchen that can handle almost any request- they also have a dedicated gluten free fryer so sweet potato fries are a tasty and safe option!!!
Well that sucked. Read the reviews here. Asked for a manager beforehand. Eric/alex the manager said absolutely safe here. I explained this is a serious disease. I will react to cross contamination. He assured me he would take care of it. Sat down, waitress came over said you have an allergy I said well yes I guess it’s celiac disease and need to take extra precaution with cross contamination. She left the table and sent another waiter over. Don’t worry we have this this is Burton grill. Ok great I’ll have a Tito’s no lime with sparking bottle water. Glass arrives with lime. Can we have a glass for our water. Sure thing. Would you like to order now. Sure, I’m going to make this easy I say, I’ll have the MLT burger, with out broccoli is there anything else I can have with that. Oh yes he says there are only 3 things here you can’t have. You can have all the fries. Really I say none of them have been cooked in the same fryer as gluten foods. No not at all you can eat any of them. Wow that’s great. 40 minutes later our food arrives, ( still no water) a burned burger with broccoli. At that point I said are you kidding if you can’t get a no lime correct, not bring a water glass, and put broccoli instead of fries I’m thinking you can’t prevent cross contamination. No trust that you can get this right and I won’t be sick for two weeks. If you can’t do it just say you can’t do it. Headed back to my hotel to eat my safe food. And share this review with my celiac group that reaches over 800 people. Shame on you Burton Grill Shame on the waitress, the waiter and the manager for not doing their job to make sure the plate was safe.
Just opened last week and seems like a really good option and, best of all, got carryout last night and didn't get glutened! They have an allergy prep area, a manager handles allergy food, and a dedicated fryer. They also have some Paleo and vegetarian options. I had the knife and fork burger and a few bites of my husband's risotto and had no problem!
Went to Burtons for the first time while visiting my daughter in Charlotte! I was so impressed with their GF offerings and how knowledgeable everyone was there. I didn't feel embarrassed to ask for GF like I do at other restaurants! My chicken sandwich was delicious and I was quite surprised with how good the bun was. Even my daughter who tried it liked it! Will be back!
Superb establishment for gluten-free food consumption. The hostess offered a gluten-free menu without me having to ask. A few gluten-free items that stood out to me on the menu include: CRAB CAKES, bread before the meal, General Tso’s chicken, and calamari. 10/10 would recommend, great environment and even better food.
My absolute favorite GF restaurant. The food is always amazing. So many GF options virtually everything on the regular menu is offered in a GF version. Staff is super careful about keeping your good GF. A manager usually brings the GF good out separately so you knows it’s GF.
Excellent for my very contamination sensitive gluten free boyfriend. The owner is celiac too and you can tell. The waiters are clearly trained, they confirm specific kitchen utensils, grilling area, and frier specifically for celiacs.
LOVE this place. Before even leaving the hostess stand, as they were grabbing menus to take us to our table they asked in a friendly way "would anyone like a gluten free menu" without any prompts. Wow!!! They also cater very similarly to other allergens and eating styles. The menu its self was jam-packed with awesome options that were GF (it wasn't a ton different from the regular menu). The waiters seemed very well educated to answer concerns, and my coworker that had a fish allergy - he was able to calm her fears! All allergen/special orders like GF come out specifically from a manager (be understanding, your food may come a minute or two later.... safety is more important here... dont complain!!!). Food was awesome, very awesome! No problems, no concerns. Worth every penny, and the experience was so awesome. Probably my favorite local spot right now.
Great place for a celiac! The waitress was great about handling allergies and my food was brought out separately. On the higher end of the price range but with so many options of food to choose from and the special care they take its worth it.
I’ve been eating at Burton’s since being diagnosed Celiac 4 years ago and never had to worry. This was my first visit to this location. I informed my server of my need for gluten free and my burger was brought out on a square plate ( which is how Burton’s identifies allergy plates). I was suspicious of the bun and had my non Celiac partner try it who confirmed it was not gluten free. We sent it back and the manager who brought out my meal apologized profusely but for a restaurant praising itself on allergy accommodation this is an alarming mixup especially since it appears the last reviewer had the same problem. I’m lucky we caught this before I ate it and got sick but this definitely erodes my confidence.
100% celiac friendly. Hostess asked us if we needed a gluten free menu (my husband has celiac) before we even had to ask. Loads of delicious gluten free options. Wait staff is very knowledgeable. My husband always has to worry about cross contamination and he had no issues.
This place is supposed to be the gold standard for celiacs but I’m not sure. We told the waitress at least 5 times that our son had celiac and his order needed to be GF. She repeated it back to us. Yet when his burger came out, it was not on a GF bun. They apologized profusely (although didn’t credit his meal). Anyway, the lesson is, if you have celiac you always have to be vigilant.
I had previously reviewed this location and given it five stars based on multiple visits all with great food and service as well as super safe for celiacs. Unfortunately my last visit was a totally different experience. When we ordered appetizers the server told me that I could eat the spring rolls even though they would not be on a square plate because almost everything the restaurant makes is naturally gluten free. I told the server that the spring rolls are not gluten free. Luckily I knew that but another patron might not have known. The three of us ordered the haddock with the crab topping. Mine was ordered gluten free and served to me on a square plate by the server. All the meals looked the same although the other two were not gluten free and the topping was not gluten free. I do not know if the wrong fish may have been put on my plate or if mine was just not made gluten free. I also had calamari and pumpkin brûlée both of which I was told are gluten free no matter who orders it. Based on how sick I got I don't believe it was a case of cross contamination. I feel like I was served gluten. I did talk to a couple Managers last week but they were not able to determine what happened. I know we always take a chance when we go out to eat but I had always considered this place to be my safe place. It was my favorite restaurant and we would drive an hour so I could eat here. I have not eaten out since and right now I am reluctant to do so. This is a restaurant that I know does take allergies seriously but they definitely had an off night the night I visited.
Shortly after you walk in the front door, they introduce themselves as specializing in food allergies, and support that statement throughout the meal. Fabulous selections cocktails, appetizers, entrees, and desserts. DEDICATED FRYOLATOR FOR FRENCH FRIES! We have eaten there several times with no issues. Recommend it highly.
GF menu and all allergy meals brought out by the kitchen manager. They come out and talk to you and cook it on different areas in the kitchen. The plates are diff sized so you know there is no mix up in any way. They made custom dishes of stuff that wasn't on the menu. COMPLETELY SAFE.
What a great place. Just opened but they seem to have their act together. We had the maple chicken sandwich on an Udi’s bun & shared the chicken risotto. My step-son ordered steak off the kids menu which they made sure was gluten free. Very happy with the service & nice ambiance. 👏👏👏👏👏
Our first time here. I have celiac and I was so excited to try it out from the reviews. I got the crab cakes and Sangria mimosa, so good. My husband got a burger from the regular menu and said it was the best burger he ever had. We will definitely be back. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about gluten sensitivity. The manager even brings out the gluten free order to your table. It is a more pricey restaurant but so worth it to be gluten free. Definitely a date night atmosphere.....
Burton's Grill really knows how to do gluten free safe for celiacs. I've eaten at another location multiple times never having a problem. The food and service at the Shrewsbury location were excellent. They lost a star because they have chosen to not offer complementary bread with herb butter at new locations. Although I was so excited that there was going to be a location closer to my home, the lack of their delicious bread will keep me from returning.
This is apparently our second time going to this restaurant. We actually didn't remember going there the first time, until we saw a previous review we had left on a different website - both of these occasions were while traveling. To put it simply, they don't disappoint. I have Celiac and thus must eat gluten free - not because it's the "cool" thing to do, but because I'll get sick otherwise. First, the restaurant is VERY accommodating. They have LOTS of options for appetizers, entrees, and desserts. One of the best out there. Additionally, our server tonight was Eric (Erik?). He was Very good. He was extremely knowledgeable of the menu and Celiac/gluten free dining needs. He was able to explain and suggest dinner options like he wrote the menu himself. He even suggested I try a combination of risotto and sauce that I would not have tried otherwise, but at his suggestion, it was delicious!! Kudos to Eric. Kudos to Burtons. If in the area again, we will certainly return!
Update: We ate here again tonight and our service was even better than last time! Our server, Eric, was excellent and very knowledgeable about gf. He explained the processes at Burton’s for ensuring gf every time and was so accommodating to us. We felt very safe eating here and our food was wonderful. We shared the steak kabobs (menu special) and the California chicken sandwich. We also tried the torte again and had the ‘trio’ which consisted of chocolate cake, mascarpone cheesecake with blueberry compote, and a berry cheesecake. Each came in a little single-serve jar. The experience was excellent and definitely safe for celiac!! Original review: Boyfriend had swordfish risotto and I had a steak sandwich. Meal was good but the dessert is where it's at!! We had the chocolate torte with raspberry sauce and ice cream and also the pecan praline tart (?) which was warmed and deliciously smothered in caramel, served with ice cream. We would go back for the dessert alone!
We've eaten at other Burton's locations before and we're so happy to have one relatively nearby. The Shrewsbury Burton's is as safe and delicious as their other locations. The hostess asks if you need a gluten free menu and the server asks if anyone at the table has any allergies or dietary restrictions. The manager brings out the GF food and it's served on square plates. When the manager brought our food he said, "No cross contact." 😁 I feel as safe as I can eating out when I eat at Burton's. Burton's is a scratch kitchen, so the food is especially tasty. The rosemary parmesan fries are delicious! Very much celiac safe!
I had forgotten about this place when we got here. After a 20 min search online under hangry conditions, I finally came across Burtons again. I was SO RELIEVED! They really are a rare treat. The manager prepared my meals and brought them to me. They take every precaution to keep you safe and fed well. I can't say enough good about their food and service!
Separate GF menu offering paleo and vegan options! Super accommodating with allergies and are sure to avoid any cross contamination by having designated plates to signify allergy as well as the manager bringing the food out and reiterating the allergy. 4 stars bc alcoholic drinks are hit or miss. Sometimes outstanding and then just flat out poorly made😱 but food is a definite go! Tacos, Fries, Fried calamari, Beet and goat cheese salad are my go toos😋
Staff asks right away if there are food allergies. You get a special plate and manager brings food with gloves.
If you have an allergy of any sort I highly recommend them! Several Gluten Free options From your normal salad options to crab cakes!!! Very allergen conscious from wait staff to kitchen, kitchen is open so you can hear them discuss their allergy protocols. Very impressed!
