Ate here recently and got the gf four cheese pasta and gf chocolate cheesecake. Came out delicious and safe. Just ask for the manager, clean water, and the usual and it came out great. I don’t get whipped cream on my cheesecake out of extra caution but you can ask if they have any safe ones :)

I took the gamble and ate here. I ordered a burger on a gluten free bun and the only gluten free cheesecake. It was really nice and I didn’t get sick. But I’m not as sensitive as others so can’t speak for everyone.

My celiac daughter ordered gluten free pasta from the kid's menu. It was very tasty but I fear there must be cross contamination as she immediately felt ill afterwards. If cross contamination is not a worry for you, the menu is extensive with many GF options. Unfortunately only one cheesecake is listed as GF option.

Was told a menu item was gluten free but when I reordered it on my next visit I was told it was not. This leaves very little trust on their knowledge of the GFmenu selections

I have eaten here a handful of times since being diagnosed as gluten intolerant. They have a pretty extensive gluten free menu, but I’ve had mixed results in eating there safely. I think it comes down to which server you get and how seriously they take your gluten allergy. The first 3 times I ate there, I was fine. Then over the next 3 times, I got sick 2/3 times, unfortunately.

Though the menu says that they have a lot of gluten free options, when I asked I found out that the GF pasta is made in the same water as normal pasta so it is very contaminated. My waitress was sweet but didn’t understand how serious I was about my allergy. I ended up getting grilled chicken, green beans, and mashed potatoes and didn’t get sick. Definitely be very cautious and ask the right questions before ordering.

Ordered gluten free pasta with an explication to the server about my celiac and it came with a regular noodle in it.
