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
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!
Best celiac-friendly restaurant in the area!
even brought us a GF roll before dinner!
As soon as we came in they asked if anyone needed a gluten sensitive menu (awesome) and the waitress also asked immediately if anyone had an allergies. I had the tacos and fries from a dedicated fryer! Awesome. I have celiac.
Really good food. I didn't have any issues with cross contamination. The waitress made me feel very comfortable eating there. One of the owners has celiac disease.
Burtons Grill is the safest place to dine in Charlottesville for people who have Celiac Disease. The staff prepares food in a separate kitchen, uses dedicated fryers, and serves gluten-sensitive food on square plates. (All other food is served on round plates.) The menu is extensive and the service is always pleasant.
I have celiac and have never had a problem dining here. The staff is incredibly kind and friendly and are very conscious of allergies, with the kitchen never failing to serve a delicious meal that is also safe to eat. My recommendation however is to stay very alert, if you are brought your order on a circle plate instead of a square, then there was a mix up and you should alert the server to it. Overall 10/10 I'm a Burton's regular and always enjoy the night's that I choose to eat here.
Delicious food that we keep coming back to, but I have experienced cross contamination. It's best to eat here at slower times. I've only ever gotten sick at popular times. Considering the lack of celiac friendly dining in Charlottesville, this is a good choice for lunch or dinner.
had chicken sanbwich. The chicken was tough and dry. The sandwhich was flavorless and the fries were soggy.
Great gf menu with many choices. They even make a gluten & dairy free risotto! My wife is very sensitive....we ate here twice with no issues. You will love this place!
Went there for graduation dinner. Awesome menu and very knowledgeable about celiac disease and how to handle food. First time I have eaten out without fear in a long time. Will be back.
black bean burger was delicious. the restaurant is gluten free by default for all of their offerings. if you want pasta or bread they have gluten free options also
Such a huge GF menu I didn't know what to choose. Onion straws! Everything was delicious. I will be back and seeking other locations.
Excellent!! Very knowledgeable about gluten and all kinds of allergies. We need more restaurants like this!!! And....delicious food!
Great food, service and menu!
Burton's is great! They have a comprehensive gluten sensitive menu with a lot of great options plus many of the failure specials are made gluten sensitive friendly. They also have an excellent kids menu with lots of fruit and veggie choices for sides. They are a "from scratch"kitchen and are able to accommodate food allergies and sensitivities. Staff is excellent too!
Easily the BEST GF restaurant within 100 miles. My wife and I are frequent fliers here and they are always on point. Very warm, caring, and considerate staff. We go here all the time.
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!
The only place that has ever asked if we had allergen issues when we walked in the door. They make it their business to take good care of those sensitive to gluten as well as other allergens. They have a great gluten free menu with lots of options. This may be the best gluten free restaurant ever.
love burtons. the gluten free fish and chips gets an A+.
I love this place. It has so many choices for Gluten Sensitive people. They really take care of you here.
Amazing service and fantastic food! My husband has celiacs (corn and gluten) and I have issues with onions and garlic. They worked around all of it! So amazing!
atmosphere, great food and didn't get sick! what more can you ask for? answer to a Celiac's prayer! wish we had this place at home!!!!
Amazing! My husband had the Steak Fritas and I had the market catch risotto. they were both very good. the menu had 20+ gluten free options. When we sat down we were asked if we had any allergies. I felt very safe eating here.
Totally wonderful! the GF menu is large and everything at our table was great. I had a view of the kitchen and saw a chef remove a plate that had just been put up for service. He called another chef over and the dish was reworked. I was impressed by that. All GF meals are served on square plates so not a problem identifying your order from a nonGF at your table. This is a GEM.
Everything here is gf or can be made gf. By far the best gf restaurant around.
I had a great experience at Burton's. The owner of the chain has celiac disease and one of the other executives has a shrimp allergy. They are well versed in cross-contact and will answer any of your questions, so you can decide if you feel comfortable eating there. The restaurant also has a dedicated fryer. The french fries were one of my favorite parts of the meal! At the table next to us, we overheard the ladies surprised to find out that their dessert (using GF flours and all) was gluten free. While there is gluten in the kitchen, they do prepare many menu items that would naturally have gluten without it, so there are many options for those with celiac disease. I would definitely dine here again. Full Review: http://gflife247.com/2014/11/28/burtons-grill/
The best in the world must have again !!!
Outstanding for gf and other allergies. They told me the founder was a Celiac and he developed the restaurant around allergies. Dedicated fryers, breading. Food was so good we made it a point to visit twice. Highly recommended.
Absolutely amazing! Right off the waitress asked our table about any food intolerances, and upon telling her my gluten intolerance she went and got a modified gluten-sfree menu that was very helpful with knowing what I could get (no guessing what was and was not gluten free, which was nice, especially since I'm somewhat new at this). Also, my dish was incredible with sophisticated but delicious flavors. Definitely recommend to anyone with a food intolerance that want truly remarkable food and a great experience!
Loved Burtons Grill. Visited with family on July 5th, food was awesome, wait staff very knowledgeable of gluten free and helping me choose my meal. Very surprised to learn two in our group ( who do not require gluten free) but their meals were gluten free so I could taste the meals. The two family members had no complaints with their meals. Great experience, would recommend to others and have via Facebook.
This Celiac approves!!! Fabulous GLUTEN FREE food handled properly. Large selection. Knowledgeable staff. I even got a gluten free roll before my meal. I cannot tell you the last time I had a roll in a restaurant!
Fantastic gluten free calamari. Nice selection of menu items.
By far, the best restaurant I have been to since going gluten free. This restaurant has a thorough understanding of gluten free foods and cross contamination. The establishment is nice and looks upscale, but we were wearing jeans and nice sweatshirts and were still treated very well. If you are gluten free this restaurant is a must! We will be back!
Great food they get Celiacs needs!
Fabulous food! Gluten free is not only cooked in a different area, but also served on different plates by management only. This is by far the most allergy- aware restaurant we have ever encountered.
I'll give then another try because the gluten free menu was impressive the one time we ate there, but they clearly don't want your business if you 1) don't have a reservation and 2) aren't dressed to impress the 17-year-olds at the hostess station. Promising, if you don't mind attitude. 6/25 service was much better. Impressive knowledge & accommodation for GF & other allergies. I do find them to be overpriced ($15 for a burger!?!) but the attitude isn't as pronounced. Totally safe and solid dining, but don't be misled by the name if you're expecting casual dining...the prices & attire indicate finer dining than the admittedly GF sensitive menu offers.
Have a huge gluten-free menu and dedicated gluten free area of the kitchen! Meals are also served on different shaped plates than gluteny meals.
Wow! Our family of 6 received amazing service and this is some of the best gf food we've ever had! Great variety and warm gf rolls to the table. So very good!
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!
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!
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!
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!
We come here multiple times when we visit Charleston. Never been disappointed. So many great GF choices! We learned on this lay visit that the president of the company has Celiac's so they have been GF since the very beginning. They go above and beyond! The shrimp and lobster pasta is GF and amazing! The risottos are fabulous.
