Although they do have some gluten free options, I was surprised they didn’t offer more. There are so many gluten free flours etc., it would have been nice to have some more brunch options. Also only 2 desserts!

I ordered chicken tacos with corn tortillas. I was told the sauce had gluten but that the cook would remove it and add some spices to make it tasteful. it was BLAND, dry and with overcooked chicken. I hesitate to give this even one star if it weren't for the waiter who understood my allergy and was frustrated himself with the kitchen.

Had a burger with salad. Server was very knowledgeable about what needed to be substituted to make the meal safe and made sure he checked everything before putting the order in (e.g. fries not safe due to fryer). Was very impressed. Edit: ordered a cheesecake slice to go, the one in the display case for was contaminated so I asked for a fresh slice from the back which they happily accommodated.

I had the Caesar Salad, Four Cheese Pasta w/ chicken, and the Godiva Chocolate Chessecake, all gluten free. It was amazing and I had no reaction! This was the Chesterfield, MO location.

Idk how the rest of chain is but the one in Birmingham, al has no knowledge of celiacs or gluten free. Worse though they act like they do so you never know what food to trust. Been there twice since my dx. Been glutened twice. Also don’t trust the online tool for it either. Wings are listed on there and they are breaded…

Ordered a chicken Caesar salad with no croutons and asked the waitress to let the kitchen know it was an allergy, unfortunately found a crouton buried in the salad halfway through

Got a happy hour hamburger in the bar area with a gluten-free bun. It was toasted beautifully. The waiter brought the wrong bun at first and thought he could just switch it out. Then I told him he had to redo it which he happily did. I had a gluten-free pasta there another time which was good.

Have lots of outdoor seating where you could probably have a dog. Reservations are recommended as this place is busy. .

They have a gluten-free cheesecake option for plain cheesecake or strawberry topping. No dairy free cheesecakes that I’ve seen.
