Restaurant was understaffed & very apologetic about it. However the service & food were great.

There aren't many places a celiac can have deep fried fish sandwich, but this was one of them!

They have big warnings on the website & menu about allergies and also ask about allergies when you first sit down.

Note that there is not a separate GF menu in person but there is on the website. In person they say they can make almost anything GF.

Came here because of the great safety reviews. Ordered the GF chicken piccata, which comes with GF penne pasta. When I'd eaten most of it, i found a piece of angel hair pasta in it, which is not GF. Manager said the chef grabbed the non-gf tongs to pull out the pasta, which likely had the piece of angel hair on it. Protocols are only good if people are following them. Cannot recommend. Manager did comp meal and gave a gift card, but i won't be back.

Staff was very knowledgeable about GF options and recommendations. They separately served my meal first with gloves to ensure no cross contamination. They have a separate GF menu and can make almost any dish, appetizer or entree GF. They even had GF desserts. Delicious!

Most of the menue is available on their gf menu. I got the risotto fritters and they were exalent. I will be back before the end of my trip.

Update: I wouldn't recommend sitting at the bar. The food was good, but they refused to refill my water.

Very good for gf. We felt very safe. First question to us by the server was if we had any allergies or eating restrictions. We were a table of six. Some liked there food a lot, some not as much. Burger buns were really good.

Near the University of Maryland, Burton's has a very large gluten free menu.

From appetizers to desserts, I counted 45 gluten free choices for lunch or dinner.

It's a bit noisy, but worth it for the food. A gluten free friend with us said " I can bring both my

(non gluten free) parents here and there are choices we would all like!"

Dang, this place is wonderful. While the menu changes by season, this current season had two total things that weren’t able to be made gluten free. They were key lime pie and croutons. Everything else on the menu was *easily* changed to gluten-free, just by switching out the kind of bread, the pasta, and so on. Since the gluten-free to regular items had such a small difference, my table got all gluten-free food, ordering risotto fritters, buffalo chicken dip, mac and cheese, their short rib grilled cheese, and spinach falafel, as well as an absolutely heavenly seven layer chocolate cake. Staff is super knowledgeable, and I was completely safe. Perfection.

I’ve been to Burtons grill many times now and its amazing! Because the owner has celiacs they’re very cautious. The staff is knowledgeable and understanding about the gf menu. They have a dedicated gf area and gf fryer. Pretty much the whole menu can be made gf. A allergy awareness certified person will bring your food out. Not only that but all and only gf food is served on a square plate. Only downside is it’s a little expensive but the food is always delicious and you don’t have to worry about ever getting sick! Great for celiacs and all gf people!

The *entire* menu can be made gluten free. It was one of the best experiences We’ve had since my child was diagnosed with celiac. We could all share from the same menu. There were so many choices for everyone. The food was amazing - we practically licked every plate clean. we are definitely going to go back!

We ordered a bacon and blue cheese burger, fries and macaroni and cheese via DoorDash. No issues being able to note gluten needs in comments. Dinner arrived and each had a sticker noting food sensitivity. No reaction, as well. We did use their website gluten free menu to verify what we could order.

I have celiac. Burtons is always always fabulous with fabulous food and waitstaff. BE SURE if you have Celiac or an allergy to tell both the host(ess) AND your server that you have a gluten “allergy.” My experience was great and our waiter was very kind but I had a close call because I had not specified I had an allergy to him, so the first thing he brought out was not marked GF. Overall great experience, I didn’t get sick thankfully because it turned out to be GF anyways, but the similarities between the regular and gluten free menu can make slips easy.

Absolutely delicious and a huge GF menu. The owner actually has celiac so pretty much most of their menu can be made gluten free. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We will definitely be back. The entire menu looked amazing can’t wait to try other items.

Absolutely LOVE Burton’s! I haven’t been Celiac tested but I definitely have a gluten allergy and am very sensitive. I’ve eaten here 3 times and had drinks here once and have never had a reaction. Their staff is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. The gluten free menu is actually almost the entire regular menu (even their pastas can be substituted with gluten free pasta), rather than just one or two gf dishes like some places have. I’m personally a huge fan of their steak, baked potatoes, and general tso’s cauliflower. I would eat here every day if I could afford it!

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!)

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!

Loved this place so much. Last night was our first trip. Tried it thanks to seeing it on social media. Appreciated the variety on the gluten free menu. Got to enjoy a fried haddock sandwich with fries and Buffalo chicken dip with tortilla chips. So so yummy! Great place and making reservations on restaurant website made it even more enjoyable since we didn’t have to wait long for Friday evening dinner.

As always, Burton’s had excellent celiac protocols and we enjoyed a delicious meal here this past weekend. We shared a bread starter (warm rosemary focaccia with a few dipping sauces) and fried calamari. We chose salads for dinner but they have varied options from sandwiches to burgers to fish tacos to pasta - all safely GF. Dedicated fryer. Love Burton’s!
