Excellent food and diverse gluten free menu. Service was very good as well. Had the fish sandwich, fried, and enjoyed it. Dedicated gluten-free fryers and gluten-free buns (Udi's). 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!)

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.

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!

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!

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!

Great options for GF. Anything on kids menu can be made GF too even though website doesn’t show that. GF dinners come out on different plates to avoid mix-ups. Both my celiac husband and son enjoyed their meals no reactions and hubby is super sensitive. I am not GF but had GF crab cakes in case my son wanted some (they were pretty good but not awesome). However GF fried calamari was terrific!

This place is unbelievable! Our server tonight told us that the owner has celiac and his goal was to create a safe place for gluten free diners to eat. Not only do they have a huge list of GF salads, appetizers and entrees, if you tell them you have celiac they will prepare it in a separate space. The food is unbelievably good and they have a dedicated fryer!We are not from Florida and we Uber 20 min every time we are in town just to dine here. Bravo Burton’s!

Love love love this restaurant. They have separate menus for several allergies and diets with diverse options. The staff is great, knowledgeable and the service never disappoints. GF bread is brought out before the meal which is alright, but it’s the butter that’s divine. I never leave hungry. The meals I have come out on a different type of plate and the manager confirms it’s GF along with the waiter/waitress.

So many options! They pride themselves in their ability to cater to allergies. When we walked in, they asked if anybody needed a gluten free menu before I even had time to ask. While waiting for our food, the waiter brought out bread and butter, and a separate plate with a gluten free role for me. Even brought seconds when we finished the plates. I ate a fish sandwich with fries and had a crab cake on the side- both were delicious. It was my birthday, and the waiter brought out a giant piece of chocolate cake that was gluten free- on the house! 100% recommend. We will be back.

The staff was friendly and didn’t hesitate at all when I mentioned CD. They had a dedicated GF menu that was offered right at the hostess stand. All of my food came out on square plates (as opposed to round). Food was delicious, I ate without stress, and still feel great the next day! Will be back.

Very aware of cross contamination. A manager brought out each of my items (separately from my guest, who is not gluten free). Having gluten free bread and oil to dip was a nice touch. The food was delicious, the staff was sweet, and I didn't get sick. I'll definitely be back.

This is the beat restaurant in the Charleston area for allergies. They ask when you first walk in if you need a gluten free menu and the servers are all knowledgeable about keeping your food safe from cross contamination. My go-to is the maxx burger with parmesan fries. Can’t get it anywhere else in Charleston! Their filet is amazing as well.

Had a great experience at Burton’s! They have an actual GF menu with meals other than salad on it. For an app my (non GF) family and I shared the buffalo chicken dip, and it was great. After apps they actually brought out GF focaccia with a pesto dipping oil. A delicious surprise! For my main meal I got the chicken carbonara which was also great and a good size portion. I took home about half. The staff was great, and I could tell they took great care in ensuring my meal didn’t get cross-contaminated. Would definitely go back.

Dedicated fryers and separate menu for gluten free! The fish sandwich is fantastic with fried pickles and pickled onions! When I ordered, our waiter was very knowledgeable on how food was cooked and possible cross contamination of dairy. They were able to alter my fish (normally made with buttermilk) to make it dairy free as well. Complementary focaccia type gluten free bread and oil, as well.

Absolutely outstanding!!! I am gluten free and dairy free, and there were a ton of options for me and even a dinner roll! The entire staff was incredibly attentive to my allergies and every person who brought out my food immediately added that it was both gluten and dairy free. Turns out the owner of the chain has celiac so it makes sense that they definitely get it. 100% recommend

I practically live at this place. This is the only restaurant I trust with all of my dietary restrictions (Celiac, dairy-free, lactose-free, grain-free, garlic/onion-free, etc). They are PHENOMENAL at paying close attention and getting it straight everytime. I've (sadly) had to become very fussy about where I'll eat, and these guys are the only ones I trust. The waitstaff are all highly-trained (they have to become certified in food-allergen training now), excellent people. Can't recommend enough!

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.

I feel terrible updating my review but I have now been glutened three out of the nine times I have eaten there since they opened in the spring (and I was away all summer). The first time I blamed it on my bringing in a gluten free cake to celebrate a birthday and not sure if there was cross contamination when they took it to the kitchen. The other two times I only ate their food. All three times were on a Saturday night (two times in November). Of all my visits, I have only had one successful Saturday night. My last visit the General Manager oversaw some of my food preparations and I know he really wanted the visit to go well as did I. The body knows when it’s been glutened so as much as I would like to think it was something else, it wasn’t. At this point I believe the Manager thinks I must have other issues which is causing the problems. The last week it happened I had eaten out at two other restaurants and a friend’s house with no ill effects. I just feel so bad as I considered Burton’s to be my safe place and I always recommended it to others. ORIGINAL REVIEW 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).

I love all the other Burton's locations but had an awful experience here. My sandwich arrived on a square plate, brought out by my server (not the manager as is typical at other locations). The bread looked different so I asked, are you sure this is gluten free? She looked down at my food and responded confidently, yep, gluten free! I said, I've ordered this a bunch of times and it's never looked like this, do you mind double checking? So she did, turns out it was not gluten free! Had I never been to Burton's before I would have eaten it. But that's not where the horror story ends. They brought me out a new sandwich and I asked if they made a completely new sandwich or if they moved the items from the old to the new bread and they assured me it was a new sandwich. Well the chicken was cold and I was SO SICK the days following that I am confident it was not a new sandwich. Throughout all of this, I didn't see a manager until the end of the meal (he brought out a third sandwich because the chicken was cold in the second but the damage was already done at this point). Very disappointed because Burton's is a chain I have otherwise always been comfortable eating at.
