I'm always so scared to trust any restaurant! I ordered the sweet corn tamale cakes as an entree. These were labeled as gf. They were delicious!! Very flavorful! & I didn't not get sick!! A real treat!

Very limited selection of GF items. I was not impressed with the spicy chicken tacos. I had eaten her before and got glutened by the Shepherd's pie.

One of the best places to get gf options. The menu is huge and they have good gluten free pasta. I’ve had items modified too to be made gluten free. Never had any problems. Plus the gf cheesecake is great.

Knowledgeable waiter. Asked if I was Celiac or had a gluten allergy. Said he would make sure the cook made my food separately. Some unavoidable cross-contamination.

My previous review was really bad on this place. And I don’t mean just this location, I mean everywhere. But I just went again and they had gluten free buns, fries, etc. Best thing, and the cheesecake is amazing like always. Definitely go again!

The food tasted delicious but I felt sick immediately after eating the mushroom burger. Ended up being sick all night.

One mention of allergies throws the kitchen in a head spin and they play it safe to the point where it's almost insulting.

Ate at this restaurant with specific instructions to the waiter about Celiac food preparation three years ago. They did not follow easy directions. Food was seriously cross contaminated. GF cheesecake was baked and stored next to wheat cheesecake. I was sick for three months. Never again. These chains do not understand what GF really means and how dangerous their cavalier attitude about it can be for Celiac’s. Do not eat here, you will get sick.

Had gluten free pasta, but I found a different noodle in my dish. I’m not sure if it’s a different type of gluten free noodle or not but it shows that they aren’t too careful.

The waiter knew nothing. I asked about an omelette, thinking it would be a safer choice, and it was marked gluten free. I wanted to make sure all of the ingredients were gluten free and he said “meat doesn’t have gluten ... I don’t think.... so the bacon should be fine” Yeah.... . He later reassured me that what I ordered was all gluten free. Now I am sick. Thanks.

Server was helpful to point out gluten free items on the menu and my meal was flagged for celiac/gluten allergy. The Skinnylicious soft chicken tacos were fantastic!

They do have several GF items in the menu. I tried their GF old fashioned burger. The meat was pretty good, but, overall, the burger didn’t have much flavor. I’ve had GF burgers in other restaurants that have tasted much better. Additionally, $14 is way too high for a burger from my perspective.

Ate here with a large party, so I know that’s hard on the server. However, they will now direct you to an allergen website and won’t answer questions about the food or prep; our server answered one question about the fries but otherwise said he was required to go get his manager (which ultimately might be great, but was very awkward with a large group of professional colleagues and also wasn’t stated as a solution or being helpful, more as a response to me being a difficult patron). I almost decided not to get food, but ultimately chose something I get might be most safe. I think it was ok, but it’s hard to say because I’m traveling and already sick. Celiacs use caution or avoid.

Our waitress was not educated on what was safe. She offered us French fries, which I already knew are not safe. Me celiac daughter got sick after eating a burger on a gf bun.

April 2019 - Tried this location for first time last week. Had Cobb salad with ranch (balsamic that normally comes with cob is not gf) and had no crutons. Took a couple slices of my own gf udi multigrain bread and they brought me butter. Waitress was knowledgeable about celiac options. Had no issues. Salad was a little bland but nice to have another family option. May try blue cheese dressing next time which is also gf. Update: have gone several more times this year with no issues. Also Godiva cheesecake is GF but I advise you only get if buy a whole frozen one to take home and thaw out in fridge before eating (the sliced ones in the restaurant case are next to gluten deserts so I avoid getting slices at the restaurant). These are the best GF deserts I know of.

I just became gluten-free, and it's been a hard adjustment. So naturally, I was scared eating out, as it's supposed to be a fun celebration, and not something to dread. When I called to see if they had a gf menu, they assured me that they absolutely did. When I went there, while the server didn't 100% know if items that weren't labeled gf were (they seemed to be), she checked with both the manager and the chef. Thank goodness that I don't have to loose one of my favorite restaurants. I had the chicken farfalle gf dish and fries for a snack, and didn't have any pain. While they only have one option for cheesecake, it was still good.

Dedicated fryer .. was warned that it is next to the regular fryer so they did warn me about the slight risk of cross contamination but that they had never had any complaints from celiacs. I am celiac and took the risk and seemed to be fine from it. The burger was great too. I had tried to eat at this chain in Canada before and didn't have much luck but I was thoroughly impressed with the menu this location had. I would go back for sure!

Needs a zero star option. I explained I’m celiac and how important it was to protect against cross contamination and ordered a gf pasta. When it came out thank goodness I asked if it was Gf. They said “on no that’s the regular past sorry we forgot”. I was so mad I cried.

They have gluten free options for pasta, burger and a cake. They clearly mark gluten free in their menu. I think they serve things as gluten free and not as gluten friendly but def something to ask next time

Limited GF modifications; no separate fryer; limited awareness of celiac/allergy prep from the server. I only ate the beet/orange/avocado salad and didn’t order more because I was worried about cross contamination. While I didn’t get glutened, I certainly wasn’t satisfied and I left hungry.

They completely messed up our to-go order: only gave us 1 bag, and had to go back to get the 2nd. When we did, the 1 gluten-free meal we ordered (Impossible burger with a gf bun) had a regular bun. After 1 bite, I could tell it wasn't gf. Had to go back the for the 3rd time to get a new meal. They took some money off but didn't comp the meal. This was for a birthday party but it took the entire evening to get everyone fed. Big chain of restaurants don't care about the little guy. Was ill for 3 days but since I didn't have to go to the hospital, it's not a big deal for them.

Our waiter was amazing ! I got the cheese stuffed hamburger . They had gluten free buns. The fries are normally cooked in oil that is cross contaminated but they heated up oil for me separately for my fries . Make sure to specify you want the fries gluten free

The staff seemed knowledgeable and were able to answer my questions about separate prep areas and safe handling of allergies. Unfortunately there was a non GF noodle mixed in with my GF pasta, which I did not find until the end. Not sure how it happened. The manager was very concerned and helpful with the situation, but the damage was done and I was sick for days after. Celiac diners beware.

The waiter we had was not knowledgeable at all. Told me all the bread was GF so I suspect he has no idea what gluten is. I asked him to double check and of course it wasn’t! The burger with mushrooms was absolutely delicious though and the hot fudge sundae was enormous and tasty. Good food but not knowledgeable staff.

They offer a good variety of gluten free menu options. I’ve had nachos, pasta, salads, entrees and dessert. There is no sacrificing yumminess for health. Everything was great. Service was good. We dined here several times over the last few years. The greatest thing of all is that I’ve never been sick after eating here. When I want a tasty meal and need to make sure I won’t be sick after enjoying my meal, I choose the Bridgewater Cheesecake Factory.

They can bring out a toasted GF bun instead of bread, which is nice. I had a GF pasta dish. I did not have any flourless cheesecake. I had a very bad reaction, was throwing up all night long. I haven’t had a bad reaction at other cheesecake factories, and I don’t know what this place did to gluten poison me. I probably won’t be back to any cheesecake factory.

We have eaten here numerous times We have been told the fryer is dedicated to fries only Waitress just told us fries are gluten free but the chicken nuggets are fried in it Manager came over to say they are fried next to each other and the bc the baskets are so close especially in a busy nite there could be cross contamination. He also said same thing for the chips and guac. Come on People get this right Its either gluten free or its not. 😡😡😡

The food tasted great! I ordered a Hamburger and French fries, under the assurance it was gluten free and they even have a separate fryer for gluten safety.... GOT GLUTENED. I think they aren’t careful and I also think that when you say “Gluten Free - I am Gluten Allergic - I have Celiac” waiters think Gluten Free Preference, which is completely different than Gluten allergic, and they don’t care. Great food, just not safe.

What is not to love! GF Godiva cheesecake! Large piece so couldn’t finish it all. Only thing to make better would be a fruit choice as it was limited
