The very first question my waiter asked was, “do any of you have any dietary restrictions the kitchen should be aware of?” They were so kind and reminding me all flyers are gluten free dedicated fryers. I got the gf fish sandwich and it did not disappoint! Will return! Also have gf desert options!

I ordered the fish sandwich. The taste was amazing. The best GF restaurant food that I have ever had.

Kyle, my waiter, was very knowledgeable and courteous. He made me feel welcomed and appreciated.

People love Burtons in the celiac community so perhaps by expectations were too high. I’ve been here a few times and the food is good...but it’s not amazing and it’s a bit stuffy for my taste. They do work very hard to be accommodating but I just prefer other, more local places.

Best GF meal I’ve had in a long time! Ordered a fried fish sandwich and it was awesome. Bread didn’t taste like cardboard and the fried fish and fried pickles were amazing. Ordering again tomorrow before moving on to SC.

They have a Gluten Free menu and the only thing they cannot make GF is their egg rolls, everything else can be made GF if you have an allergy they take extra precautions to make sure everything you eat is safe for you, sometimes a chef or manager will bring out all of the items that are made for allergies. The owner of burtons created the restaurant chain to be able to cater to GF, Paleo and Vegetarian eaters!

Absolutely perfect experience. Everything you hope for when you have celiac: dedicated menu, very knowledgeable staff, they separately walk out your food first and announce which is gluten free. To go is great too, overall one of the best for sure.

I have eaten here multiple times and never gotten sick! Separate GF menu, and separate space in the kitchen for food prep. Waitstaff are very knowledgeable of all different food allergens, and always ask if there are any allergies at the table. The menu is a bit pricey, but the GF options cost the same as regular options. They also have the best bun I have had since being GF (and it doesn’t fall apart!). Definitely recommend this place.

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 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.

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!

The BEST G-F menu I have seen. The she-crab soup was better than even regular she-crab soup I used to enjoy. The crab-crusted trout was delicious. Good wine menu. The 7-layer chocolate cake was delicious.

The only problem was the noise. The music was way too loud--people's conversations were loud to be heard over it. It gave my husband a headache.

Server was polite and attentive but there seems to have been some cross contamination in the kitchen. This was the only meal I ate out today so it’s the only place I could’ve gotten sick. I really enjoyed the environment and meal but celiacs need to know that they do serve items with gluten so there is a risk.

As a Charlotte local with celiac who recently went through a bout of GI issues that completely changed the way I eat, this is basically the only restaurant I will eat at anymore (and I used to eat out probably 3-4 nights/week). They have a separate food prep area where they handle the gluten-free and other allergen orders. The manager is very knowledgeable, as are the servers who have been there for awhile. I personally love their salmon and their jasmine rice. The paleo burger is also good. Low FODMAP can be a little more of a challenge to find on their menu, but I also haven't specifically asked them to accomodate that since I already ask for GF and a couple other allergies, which are the most important. If you need low FODMAP without specifically wanting to ask for it, your best bet may be a protein, white rice, and green beans or spinach. (Note that the really amazing jasmine rice does have garlic powder.)

This place is amazing. The amount of GF options is overwhelming and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.They ask you before you are seated if anyone would like a GF menu, so you don’t feel like an after thought; Your safety is intentional.

This place is a gem! The owner has celiac, so the menu is almost all gluten free. The servers were knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. They use corn flour and rice flour, gluten free panko for breading. Managers and servers who are allergen certified bring the food out to help avoid cross contamination. The food was DELICIOUS! We had crab cakes and crab stuffed haddock. What a find!

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.....

Wow, what a great GF meal I had at Burtons Grill. I had surf & Turf (steak & crab cakes) it was the best GF meal I have had at a restaurant since I found out I have celiac. I didn't worry about getting sick with all the precautions they take. Also a good place for those without GF issues. I will be going back often. A big thank you to the manager Krisztian & his staff for making us feel so welcome!

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!

Fantastic experience time after time. They really know their food, and what's better: they know their allergies. Most of their food is inherently gluten free and they are hyper aware of gluten as an allergen. They present a gluten free menu that I assumed was the real menu, because it had most of the food on it. Burger was phenomenal, probably the best I've ever had. Gluten free bun and the highest quality beef you could ask for. Great atmosphere and good service. Gluten free beers on tap, as well as ciders. Will visit again

tl;dr - Great food, large selection, good atmosphere, good service, will visit again
