I expressed to the waitress that I have Celiac disease and not just a food preference. My burger was brought out on a regular bun. They were going to just move the burger on to a GF bun and I had to explain that I could no longer eat that burger or the side of broccoli that was resting against the bun and would need a new order made. After 20 minutes they brought out a new burger on a GF bun, and the burger was completely rare. The waitress also had no idea what I was talking about regarding a shared or dedicated fryer for the French fries.

Symptomatic celiac. Informed waitress of allergy and watched her write it down. Food tasted great. Ordered gluten free four cheese pasta. Took a bite and said “man, this doesn’t even taste gluten free” as a compliment to the food. Not sure if I was given gluten or gluten free pasta but had an immediate significant gluten reaction. Will not be returning due to severity of gluten exposure. Was the worst exposure yet (have been gluten free for 6 months)

This is my go to place for GF cheesecake. The Godiva is amazing. Ask for it to be prepare GF because they garnish it with something that is not GF.

I also don’t mind their GF burger buns. It can get crumbly… but I enjoy the taste and burger itself.

Visited the Bridgewater location, they had a decent amount of gluten free options on the menu. The waiter was knowledgeable and caring. Service seemed a bit slow so he came to us to explain they were taking extra precautions in the kitchen for us...cleaning space to keep our food safe and taking their time to avoid cross contamination. My son and I ate and had zero issues from the dinners we had. The waiter definitely made us feel comfortable.

This place I ordered a cake and a stake that had a gluten free option, specifically I told them these need to be gluten free. I got glutened and had to leave within 15 minutes after started eating.

Well informed staff, was informed that their steamed broccoli is steamed in pasta water and their green beans come marinated in sauce containing gluten. Wait staff and manager made sure everything I ordered was safe.
