    Had the French dip sandwich. Gluten free bun was excellent . My friend had a very tough sirloin steak with unappetizing green beans.

    not impressed at all. Their GF menu included fries, but when I asked about a dedicated fryer my waitress had no clue what I was talking about. Then she asked the kitchen and NO not a dedicated fryer. So why put the fries on the "safe" menu? I didn't trust anything from the menu after this.

    Food is always fantastic and the staff is helpful and nice. I've never gotten sick here but I'm very cautious. They don't have a dedicated fryer, even though they list their Belgian and sweet potato fries as safe sides. That's why I get the mixed greens instead. No regrets.

    I have celiac disease and always weary of restaurants. No problem here! They even use gf beer in the steamed mussels! Separate GF menu with plenty too choose from.

    Awesome gluten menu! Lots of items to choose from, even a gluten free pretzel. I had the sweet potato fries and they were the best fries I have had in a long time.

    Staff was very helpful and checked on questions I had. My husband was very happy with the gluten beer options. The fryer is NOT dedicated, but they are up front about it, which I appreciate.

    Explained my need for gf diet to the server and asked three times if my sandwich was prepared on the gf bun. I ate almost all of it and started feeling ill. Spoke to the manager and he confirmed that it was not a gf bun!!! Would not go back!

    They may offer GF options, but it does not appear they are careful about cross contamination. My child with Celiac had a severe reaction despite everyone at the table ordering GF options.

    I have celiac and eat here all the time. Make sure to ask for the GF menu! They have very good gluten free buns for their sandwiches and burgers and lots of ciders to choose from if you'd like to drink. They do not have a designated fryer, but they will bake the fries for you! Plus all of their special mayo dippings are GF. I really enjoy this place a lot. My husband and I come here often.

    Fantastic gf salad options! we had the ahi tuna and steak salads both were cooked to perfection. Staff knows about gluten free options as well as what dressings paired well with our salads. Our waiter helped us decide what to order and was very friendly as were the hostesses. Service was fast, restaurant was clean and nicely decorated. They had a number of gf alcoholic beverage options and a good sized gluten free menu. Overall great experience!

    Gluten free menu. Most of the menu items share a frier and are not celiac safe. Mostly the standard Steak and broccoli/asparagus option. Steak was good though.

    Gluten free menu, and gluten free buns for the burgers. They do warn that they use a shared frier. I had some minor upset stomach on one visit but the manager vowed to make it right next time and I had a much better experience the second time.

    I ordered a simple hamburger with onions and tomato from the gluten-free menu. I was brought a regular hamburger bun. I asked if it was the gluten free bun, and the waitress was like, whoops. She took the meal back to the kitchen to have it redone. Good news: they comped my meal. Bad news: my lips and throat swelled up a bit after eating the burger. Either the cook just moved the contaminated burger from wheat bun to gluten free bun, or there was something in the bun that i reacted to.

    Make sure your waiter is aware you are celiac. I had the turkey club sandwich on GFree bun with mayo and side salad with no problem. Also had a burger once with no reaction. However, have had reactions after a plain burger and spicy chicken sandwich (don't know why I took that risk) but both times they were very busy in the restaurant. Our waiter has always warned me about the fries so I never attempted them. I wish they had more hard cider choices!

    Went with my family after being told what a great gf menu they have. On first glance the Gluten Free menu does look great! Belgian fries? Yes, please! "Um, do you have celiac or just don't eat gluten," my waiter, Stephen wanted to know, "because none of the fries are recommended for real celiacs because we use the same fryers for breaded stuff...."! Yet, here they are, listed under the appetizer section of the special Gluten Free menu! I shared this info with a friend via text, and it dawned on her she ate the fries Friday night and had been having signs of being "glutened" all weekend but wasn't sure where the offense had occurred. Apparently her server wasn't keen enough to share the whole non-dedicated fryer situation with her. When I learned that I should have just left, but no...we went forward and ordered some gf burgers , no sides, confident our your waiter was commuted to ensuring our meal would be safe. After all, he did recognize we couldn't have the fries, right? Well, I don't know if it was the bun, sauce, or exactly what component of the meal it is they made my son sick, but he definitely got glutened. Suffice it to say I am with previous reviewers and can NOT recommend this as a safe place for anyone with celiac to eat.

    Lots of options and the server was educated enough to let me know that foods made in the fryer would be cross-contaminated. Meal was good and it was easy to accommodate a group that included kids.

    After specifying intolerances, I was served a sauce that had gluten and vegetables that were cooked in butter (can't have dairy). Making an attempt here but they clearly don't get it.
