I had the corn tamale cakes (gf option) and it was great! I confirmed with corporate that they use separate pots/pans for gf items. The waitress said every item was cooked in a new pot/pan except something on the grill.

Review is in consideration of GF. Brunch, no GF bread offered, yet they have a hamburger bun that I could have had, untoasted. So you know the prep is limited for GF meaning be careful. Also, strange no alternative milks offered, for instance coconut, almond, etc. just not really a friendly food sensitivity restaurant. I guess they have not been paying attention around them.

DO NOT GO HERE!!! I was served pasta not once but twice with gluten noodles mixed in. The first time I caught it and I checked the second noodles and missed one. And as you all know, it only takes one... They seemed like they really got it after talking to them the first time but obviously not. It turns out that they store the glutinous noodles right next to the gf noodles in open containers and then pour noodles into individuals serving sizes. I will never, ever eat here again.

The meal was bad and the cheesecake was delicious. The waitress got an attitude about whether or not the fry cooker was dedicated. Turns out that they now have a dedicated fryer and both sweet potato and regular are GF but SP is still not noted as GF on the menu.

the gfree godiva cheesecake is killer but the rest of my meal.... not so much. the gluten-free menu is great but when I was ready to order I found out the fries are NOT gluten free because it's a shared frier.... even though they're listed as gluten free. my burger was just okay and the bun was super dry. They have loads of choices but be careful!

I had a mai tai and Hawaiian fish burger with a gluten free bun. For a chain restaurant, it was good and I was glad they had customized the menu for the location. The server was knowledgeable and helped me out with safe food choices.

I’d give 0 stars if I could. They couldn’t even guarantee a bowl of strawberries would be safe. Ended up getting soda and tea the whole meal and eating snacks I packed in case

I've gone to this Cheesecake Factory location a few times and always order the same GF pasta. They have several GF pasta options and GF buns for burgers available upon request. Every time I order the GF pasta they seem knowledgeable. When the food comes out, they always say "GF pasta" before setting the plate down. I can tell it's GF pasta since the original dish comes with penne and the GF pasta is fusili. I've never gotten sick after being here. Would recommend!
