It was so great! We loved it here before my celiac diagnosis. But it’s just as great after. The staff takes great care to make sure everyone in the kitchen is aware and let me know what menu items I can safely eat. Highly recommend.

There is no GF menu. The server did check to see if a side dish had gluten - it did. Although, nice ambience, I was sick after eating ribs and a backed potato. Never again.

We got the GF baby back ribs and asked to have the chef make our kids burgers and all was GF. And ever so tasty! We confirmed the GF with our Nima Tester.

Staff was very knowledgeable, told waiter I had Celiac and he offered to send the manager right over just to reassure us. I got the filet and the salt and pepper baked potato and everything was fantastic!

First of all, very knowledgeable staff. The general manager came to our table and explained that everything on the menu except for eight items were or could be made GF. The ribs and potatoes were excellent, but the brisket was dry and tough. Overall a very pleasant experience for an upscale meal.

All barbecue is gluten free! Amazing ribs and chicken! Knowledgeable about gf sides if you ask - not a dedicated fryer so fries are not an option. Dressings and barbecue sauce gluten free.

They have a gluten free menu with no prices on it. My daughter ordered a gluten free steak and it came with an onion ring on it. It may be gluten free friendly but not for celiac.

Have only had the rib tips. They were great and I didn't get glutened.

BEWARE!!!! MY HUSBAND IS BEING HOSPITALIZED DUE TO THEIR NEGLECT.

My husband is hospitalized tonight because this restaurant did not take his allergy seriously.

He ordered from the gluten free menu and specifically told the waiter that he had to have his entree gluten free due to a serious allergy.

When his food came, apparently it had been "charred". My husband always orders well done so he couldn't see the difference.

The manager ACTUALLY BLAMED MY HUSBAND FOR EATING THE FOOD. They took no money off the bill, and tonight, my husband is in the hospital.

I can't even tell you how upset we are.

IF YOU HAVE CELIAC DISEASE - STAY AWAY!!!!!

If I could figure out how to sue this restaurant for blatant disregard, I would.
