I had a gluten free pizza here and it didn’t taste very good and I also felt a little sick to my stomach after. I definitely wouldn’t eat here again unless I got a salad with basically nothing on it because they don’t seem to take CC very seriously

I always make sure the wait staff knows that eating gluten free is not a choice but necessity. I have eaten here several times and just no more... The last time I was served croutons in my salad and when they took it back I am pretty sure all they did was pick them off because when I started to eat my new "GF" salad I found several croutons in the bottom. I set that aside knowing I was now going to have a week of stomach cramps. Got my main meal and they were indeed GF noodles but were terribly under cooked and found regular noodles when I got a little ways through the dish and stopped eating all together. I talked to the manager who apologized and brought me a GF brownie. We left everything on the table brownie included and were still charged full price. Every time I have gone there has been an issue. I wait up to a year before trying again hoping that with education they will get better but it is worse every time. This is a favorite for my large family and no one eats there now because of my allergy. Bummer.

Ate the gluten free pasta twice. Very good! But even after talking to waitresses each time and making sure that my food would be completely safe, I still got unsafe food. 1st day the kitchen staff brought a full gluten meal, then after eating 3 spoon fulls the waitress noticed it was the wrong pasta and took it from me. The manager came and offered me cake to say sorry... and still charged me full price... 2nd day, I told them what happened the 1st time and they said they would make sure that never happened again. I ate a great tasting meal, and half way through the bowl of pasta... I found 2 gluten noodles! I was so upset, and they just said sorry and felt bad, still chartered me full price, didn’t offer me anything to make it up to me. Later that day I puked for 6 hours. Will never eat there again, even though they have the only gluten free Alfredo I have found. And it’s good. It’s not worth it!

Horrible! Yes they have a gluten free menu, but it didn't taste very good at all! My husband got a non gluten dish and his was very under-cooked.

I am highly sensitive, and have not gotten sick the two times I have eaten here. The staff was great at understanding what needed to be done to make my meal safe. The food was very good. This has become our "go to" place whenever we are in Idaho.

Chili is awesome! They are very helpful and willing to work with you. Have had some sensitivities, but I'm seriously over the top Celiac, with several food allergies.

They offer one type of gluten free pasta (penne). The waiter was clueless about gluten free ingredients or cross contamination in their dishes and had to take back two dishes we had ordered. Finally got the manager who knew something. Ended up having a burger with lettuce wrap and a chicken dish with gf pasta. In the end they were very apologetic and comped us the meal.

Ordered the angel hair artichoke pasta, asked server to have it made with the GF spaghetti pasta instead. 15 minutes into the meal had a very bad reaction. Not sure if normal pasta was used or it was cross-contamination. Definitely not eating here again.

Walked in the door and the manager said that they had gf noodles, but he had worked in food service since 1993 and had never heard of cross contamination or that gluten could be in sauces or spices etc. Used to go here a long time ago with no issues, not sure what happened to the staff training lately. Didn't stay due to the lack of knowledge.

They had a very nice gf menu with multiple choices. I opted for a shrimp scampi pasta dish using gf spaghetti. It was wonderful! My waitress was very knowledgeable about my needs, and seemed to communicate that well with the kitchen staff.
