Went here for lunch with daughter who is gf. Everything gf is listed on regular menu. We didn’t see much as waiter kept coming by too ask if we’re ready but we weren’t. Felt so rushed it was our first time. My daughter just got buttered noodles. She said it was good but it was all so overpriced. I was with 2 other people we all ordered fettuccine lunch.

I had to google to find gluten free options (no GF menu listed online). I ordered the factory nachos. They told me that I couldn’t have the cheese sauce but could have cheddar Jack cheese to make it GF. I had heartburn after eating it and was sick later on. My guess is that the tortilla chips are cc’d. I have tried to eat here a few times since getting diagnosed with celiac. This isn’t a safe place for celiac.

Got the ribeye steak, fries, and a chocolate cheesecake (1 of 2 GF cheesecakes). Food was delicious and I didn't have a reaction from it.

They're not dedicated gf, but our server was pretty knowledgeable and kind about dealing with my celiac.

Waiter was very helpful and answered all my questions. If he didn’t know, he went and asked the kitchen. I felt like I was in good hands eating there. I ended up with a burger and salad, which were both average.

My Celiac daughter ordered the gluten free burger with a gluten free bun and fruit. Within an hour vomiting, diarrhea, and all signs of eating gluten. Waiter assured us that they could accommodate and that everything would be gluten free. Never again :(

I have celiac disease I went here today for lunch. I was very careful and checked with both the hostess before sitting down and with my server before ordering. Both assured me that they treat gluten as an allergy and that I would be fine eating there. Although they assured me that I would be fine as I was eating I realized there was a gluten noodle in my pasta that I had accidentally eaten. I will now most likely be very sick from this. I altered the staff and both my server and manager were very apologetic and did not make me pay but I will never eat here again and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with celiac disease or even a gluten allergy.

I'm glad other people have eaten here and not gotten glutened. However, I've gotten sick every time I've eaten here! Maybe it's my fault for ordering gluten free pasta dishes, but they shouldn't label it gluten free if it's not! I do appreciate the large gluten free menu though.. So I felt like that warranted 3 stars!

Menu is marked with GF options. Dedicated fryer for fries is awesome! I've eaten here many times and I'm very sensitive. I have not gotten sick.

Their PPM disclaimer keeps me from giving a Celiac friendly rating, but I am severely gluten sensitive and did not get sick after eating there.

Was not bad but experience varies by server. We came twice as staying nearby... only on the 2nd visit did our server correct the misinformation from the first server.

There is NO dedicated fryer... it is shared oil. A lot of the staff are unclear of the difference

Tried to order a gluten free four cheese pasta for my Celiac daughter. When asked if they cook the pasta in separate water and use separate utensils, they said unfortunately they cook it in the same water as gluten pasta and they can’t use separate water. :(
