Delicious food and a dedicated gluten free menu. No dedicated fryer, but the server was very knowledgeable about cross-contamination. The gluten free brownie was absolutely amazing!

The gluten free buns for the burgers were some of the best I have had at a restaurant. Their burgers are amazing. They did say they could bake the fries if we wanted to avoid cross contamination.

We are here for dinner on New Year's Day, one of few GF options open for dinner this day. They have a GF menu and the staff are very knowledgable and even offered items that were not specifically listed in the menu. We had burgers with GF buns, and they baked wings and fries for us to be safe. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area.

We often go down to Verona va to visit the Large antique mall. We stopped in Harrisonburg va for lunch at the Capital Ale House. Let me say this place is ammmazing. They have a nice sized gluten free menu. And even though they have a shared fryer, they will bake the items on request. The baked fries were some of the best I ever had. The Smokehouse burger(minus onion straws) is the bomb. They lose a star for using Udi’s buns. They are the worst in the industry, but the good outweighs the bad— at Capital Ale House Harrisonburg.

This place is not safe for celiac. They've gotten me glutened multiple times. I had a manager tell me fries were safe and done in a gf fryer only to find out after 2 years of eating them that they were never safe. Then was directed to mussels which are on the gf menu and was just informed no mussels are gf despite being on gf menu. If you have celiac disease stay far away. If you're only sensitive, their food is delicous; enjoy. 5heyre very ignorant for gf and celiac

Our server worked here for 4 years and had never heard of them having a GF soft pretzel as another person shared (the whole reason we came here). They do not have hardly any vegetarian GF options; I got the steak salas without the steak. Server seemed annoyed that I asked questions about ingredients. Not awful, but not really recommended.

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!

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.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised at the number of gluten-free items. You can actually get a hamburger on a gluten-free bun. They have a gluten-free fryer that is only for their gluten-free fries. Several gluten-free beers. The food was excellent.

They are great about gf, if you want gf fries I would just order them ahead of time because it does take a little while since they are baked. Still super tasty though. My only complaint is that the food isn’t the best I have ever had. It’s alright, I would go back but just wasn’t life changing.

We went here with high hopes based on the reviews we read here. We went on a Sunday around 3pm. Apparently they don't serve any other menu except their brunch menu that only has one gluten free option (eggs). Bartender was NOT helpful or friendly at all. Hubby had a beer and I had an iced tea. He said the beer was flat and tasted awful. We both agreed the bathrooms weren't very clean and our feet stuck to the floors everywhere. We ended up leaving and going to Tio Pablo Tacqueria instead and having one of the best meals we had on vacation! Skip this place!

They had a separate gluten free menu with lots of options and the server seemed knowledgeable which was great. I had a burger on a GF bun and was offered GF fries which was exciting because they were baked rather than fried in the fryer with everything else. The only problem was that they came out about 10 minutes after my burger which means I had to eat them separately. Next time I’ll choose a green salad with my meal instead.

First time I’ve been since my celiac diagnosis. I was pleased with the gluten free menu and that they note that their fries and other fried foods share a fryer so I knew not to eat them. Had a delicious salad and a gf beer. I did notice that they had omission beers listed on their gf beer menu. While this beer might be safe for non-celiacs with gluten issues, it’s really not a gf beer so should be listed clearly as gluten removed or reduced instead like some other restaurants clarify. Overall, good experience. So far I feel fine!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
