I have noticed it has gone downhill when it comes to Being taken seriously when it says gluten-free. I have tried to eat here many times (when I used to work there) and I get sick every time whether it’s a salad, burger or pasta. I have said some thing to not only the kitchen managers but also my regular managers and nothing has changed. Don’t want my fellow celiac’s getting sick. Don’t get me wrong it’s a great restaurant and has great food and I loved working there just wish the kitchen took it seriously.

I ordered from DoorDash as I am away on business with no way to get around(the hotel didn’t have a microwave). I’ve just in the last 6 months discovered I am unable to have Gluten without serious consequences. I am still new and unsure of how much cross contamination impacts me, so I’m not an expert, especially while away.

I ordered from here as there are multiple designations that say gluten free. When the bag got here there was blatant disregard to everything being ordered gluten free, they put bread in the bag right on top of fries that were not sealed, they had croutons on the salad (even crossed out the gluten free on the receipt attached.) I ate the burger as per pictures it did look like a gluten free bun. It was obviously a mistake as I am already feeling extremely bloated

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

Not many gluten free meal options and only 3 cheesecake options. Definitely not the safest option but very good if you are willing to risk it.

Glutenized.. sick for days.

Although the waiter confirmed gluten free for my salad, it had to have been cross contaminated

I’ve been coming here frequently the last few months and I can say honestly if you’re super sensitive to gluten or allergic to it, I don’t recommend this location at all. I always make sure to tell my server I have a gluten allergy and it’s always hit or miss whether they take that seriously.

When they do, the food is amazing and they are super accommodating, giving me gluten free rolls instead of the free bread they usually serve and having my food prepared in the allergy section of the kitchen. A manager also took my order and verified with the chefs to make sure nothing would be a problem.

Unfortunately this level of care isn’t guaranteed and recently I’ve been getting really sick from the food, so I had to stop going altogether. It’s not worth the risk! The last time I went my food didn’t come with the allergy indicators they usually stick in it and I didn’t say anything because I thought the staff knew what they were doing. I got so violently sick after, I stayed up all night and had to call out of work the next day.

I feel bad complaining because the staff are usually so friendly and nice, but this really affected my health. I think people should know that they often make mistakes with the gluten free food, even with specifying an allergy :(

My daughter who has celiac told the waiter that she had a gluten allergy and would get very sick if he did not put the order in as gluten free. Waited over an hour for our food. The pasta she got looked gluten free but after 3 bites, she said it did not taste good. Within 15 minutes, she was sick in the bathroom. Told the waiter - did not seem to be concerned. Asked him to take the dish off of our bill and that did not seem to concern him either. Overall, do not eat here if you want gluten free food.

I let the server know I was gluten free - coeliac multiple times so she would get my order right and I confirmed with her again before my meals came out and she still gave me the gluten cheesecake instead of the gluten free one
