Really enjoyed eating at a safe place for a person with celiac disease. Wish they were closer to Illinois. Will definitely return & look for their other locations. My meal was excellent!
The staff and kitchen are trained and they have a computer that actually will alert them if dairy or gluten is present. We are gluten/dairy free with celiac and actually booked our vacation around this restaurant. We can have crab cakes! They have a separate full menu of choices!
Great menu! I’m Keto & Celiac. They have limited sugar-free, GF, Paleo options plus a full GF menu
Everything was amazing about this place other than the fact it was a bit pricey. Staff was VERY knowledgeable and understanding and food was great. Best meal I’ve had I a while.
very good food but is very pricey. i love their gf calamari. :) Weve come a few times. im allergic to soy also. one time the risotto bothered me but another time I was ok. always tastes great
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.
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.
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!
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!
Staff asks right away if there are food allergies. You get a special plate and manager brings food with gloves.
Best service since diagnosis of celiac. Asked about allergies from the host to the server and beyond. Had my first gluten free crab cake that wasn't like eating sandy crab. Highly recommend.
Staff were very knowledgeable. Gluten free menu was extensive and delicious!
We were told that one of the founders of this restaurant has Celiac Disease, which explains a lot about their our great experience. There are only 3 or 4 items on the large menu that can not be made gluten free. They have a separate fryer and take great care to avoid cross contamination in the rest of the kitchen as well. Gluten free food was even delivered by a different server. The food was fantastic. The Buffalo Chicken dip is amazing. We ordered a second. My daughter was able to eat gluten free fried calamari for the first time. She also had a half order of risotto- which was the size of a full serving compared to other restaurants. She was served gluten free rolls for the bread service- a first for us. She also loved the gluten free chocolate torte for desert. She was so happy! She had more food choices here than at any restaurant she has been to since she was diagnosed with Celiac. We are in the area on vacation and we're so impressed by the restaurant, and lengthy list of options, that we plan to go back today before we leave town! I just don't think you can go wrong with this choice!
Amazing dinner. Clearly marked menu. The meal comes on square plates so that you know it is gluten free. You will enjoy your experience.
We were extremely impressed with the precautions taken at Burtons Grill to ensure our daughter received a completely Celiac friendly, gluten-free meal. The waiters are very well informed and knowledgeable about celiac disease, and the manager herself brought our daughter's dish to the table separately and then explained that all gluten-free dishes are served on square plates as an added precaution. Food was tasty, too!
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
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.
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!
This place is fabulous and has great protocols in place to keep celiac‘s safe. The wait staff is supposed to ask you if there are any allergies at the table before they take your order. Then they have an allergy manager who actually brings out your food. I’ll allergy food is served on the square plate and everybody else’s food is served on a round plate. The food was delicious. I had the general Tso’s cauliflower, the superfood salad, and chicken risotto. I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. And the chocolate cake was really good too! I am celiac and I did not have any reaction eating here.
The staff and management team at this location are phenomenal and go above and beyond to help those with allergies or food sensitivities. Service and food is always excellent with so many options to choose from. They really made my night while having been through a frustrating day of being told I couldn't eat anywhere (celiac) and I would highly recommend to anyone.
My 2 year old (she is very reactive) and I both recently diagnosed with celiac, i read all the great reviews and chose here to be the first place to eat out since our diagnosis and i cant say enough complimentary words of how great the experience was... Service was amazing and the gluten free menu was very extensive ! Our condition was taken very seriously by all staff and the manager made extra effort to put my family’s anxiety of cross contamination at ease and made sure to bring the plates out herself. Complete recommendations across the board for staff and food for this place !
We love this chain - they are known for their gf offerings. Almost everything can be prepared gf and the staff is extremely knowledgeable (our server also had celiac and the manager came out to serve the gf food to my daughter). They even bring gf bread to the table! Food was fantastic and we felt very safe here and highly recommend!
Saying I love Burton’s is an understatement. This is the ONLY place I can go without having anxiety for any type of cross contamination. Their service is seriously amazing. One of a kind. Food is insane and drinks are great. This is a must visit.
Just took my celiac daughter a few days ago and had an amazing experience. We were told the owner has celiac so the kitchen staff is well trained on the risk of cross contamination. The server told us they have 3 separate fryers in the kitchen - one for seafood, one for gluten and one for gluten free items. We had a wonderful appetizer called General Tso's cauliflower which had even the vegetable skeptics at the table fighting over the last bits. My daughter had a gluten free crab cake and french fries (from the dedicated fryer) and had no reaction. We almost went back the next night since there were so many choices!
Ate here twice while on vacation at the Isle Of Palms. I can't say enough good things about the place. First question the hostess asked is if we needed gluten free menus. Wait staff was very knowledgeable about the menu items. The manager came by to explain how the food is handled that there is a separate area for gluten free food prep. The food was delicious. The customer service was outstanding. The whole experience was amazing.
Didn’t give it a 5 star because they messed up kn my order. I ordered salmon, “the waiter asked how I wanted it have it cooked . I responded well done. At the end I got grilled shrimp and the big size of course more money, however it was good. Got the dessert on the house chocolate cake gluten free which was beyond amazing.
Love this place. Dedication kitchen space and fryer. Love to come sit at the bar and order food while we watch whatever game is on. Staff is really friendly and I always feel well taken care of by them. So used to going out to eat and feeling super nervous and timid about ordering but they make you feel right at home here.
They truly take allergies seriously here. When we walked in they immediately asked if we needed a gluten free menu and while placing the order the server asked if we had any allergies. Managers brought out my meal and explained that all gluten free items are brought out on a square plate by a manager. After reading other reviews we decided to try the General Tso’s Cauliflower and it was amazing!! I also had the Lobster Shrimp Pasta which was very yummy.
The gluten free menu is AMAZING. Usually GF options are just stripped-down versions of regular menu items...but not at Burton’s! The GF choices are real dishes with GF ingredients substituted so you don’t feel deprived. Options include a fried fish sandwich, fries (regular and sweet potato), crab cakes and fish topped with crab stuffing! There are also many DF options and accommodations available. The food was amazing and, most importantly, it was responsibly prepared and served - my dish was brought out by the manager, who confirmed it was GF. I will definitely be a regular!
By far my favorite restaurant. Very good for celiac and gluten free diners. Staff is highly educated and they have a very wide selection. Almost everything on the kids menu could be made gluten free and there were numerous options on the normal menu. They also offer gluten free dessert. A manager will also bring your gluten free food out to be sure everything was prepared properly. Aside from the gluten free part, the restarting is inviting and is located in a very nice location.
Great choice for celiac. I was offered a gluten free menu at the host station before I asked for one, which was extensive and had lots of choices. They brought me gluten free bread and brought regular bread for the rest of my table on a separate plate. All of my GF food came on square plates which separated it from the rest. And the food was overall really good. Really good experience.
Truly an outstanding restaurant. If I could rate it higher than 5 stars I would, it’s that impressive. They take food allergies VERY seriously, more than any other restaurant I have ever frequented. The best part is that their number of GF options is tremendous, the food is beyond excellent, and this place is not to be missed!
I have a wheat sensitivity and avoid dairy as much as possible so, I always ask for the gluten free menu at restaurants but, I was surprised when they had a bonus paleo section. The staff was attentive and careful when handling my food. Totally recommend Burtons. Yours truly, Happy with a full tummy :)
Excellent food with a number of choices. Our waiter asked if anyone had any food restrictions or allergies right when introducing himself. My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac about 6 months ago, and is still struggling with being awkward around identifying it when we are out. This made her feel very comfortable
Excellent gluten free menu with many options. When my niece ordered an appetizer "for the table," I was impressed that the server asked if we would like it made gluten free too! My family said yes so I could share it too, and it was excellent! Wonderful service and wonderful food!
From the second you arrive you are in gluten safe zone. They ask if you want gluten free menu. When you go to order they ask if there are allergies and explain they are an allergy safe restaurant. When you say celiac and order they say your order will be on square plate and delivered by a manager to know your food is safe. And the food is yummy! Cauliflower and zuchinini appetizers are so yummy. Fryers are all gf can’t wait to come back.
