Review


I called ahead to inquire about cross-contamination and was told that they'll prepare separately if the waiter is told when we arrive. The waiter was told that I have gluten allergy and needed food to be prepared separately, but my salad came with croutons. Waiter was apologetic for that and obtained a fresh one for me. When I ordered my main dish, which was marked GF, I was told they were out of that particular chicken, so I chose Sheppard's Pie, also marked GF. Taste was okay/average. My girlfriend ordered a glass of wine, which came out with lipstick on the glass that they mentioned was "water spots." They took the glass of wine off of our bill, but these blunders were annoying. I did not have any reaction to my food, so I assume that they prepared my food appropriately. Skipped their gluten-free cheesecake due to prior errors.

Be cautious if you choose to eat here. Ask questions and make sure you check with waiter.

I ordered a pasta dish off their gluten free menu. My waiter was awesome. When the food came out there was clearly too different pasta types on my plate. He spotted it before I did. After that the manager personally made my meal to ensure whatever mistake happened didn't happen again. Unfortunately the manager isn't a great chef but I appreciate the second time around I could actually eat my food, two hours after I ordered it. On the bright side the complimentary gluten free chocolate cheesecake was amazing!

Hello, this is my first review. I was diagnosed with Celiac yesterday but this is my first review. I was nervous to eat here because I am still getting used to ordering special and gluten free. Normally I would have gotten whatever I wanted but because this was my first official time ordering gluten free my options were limited. They have a huge menu, but limited gluten free options. There were some pastas, burgers, chicken dishes, salads, and omelette dishes. I settled for a turkey burger with a gluten free bun. The waitress was not surprised to hear a gluten free request and asked about accommodations. My burger came out and looked good. I’m pretty sure they brought me a beef patty instead of turkey, but i was more worried about my first GF bun! To my surprise it was really good. I have had bites of my mom’s GF buns before and know that there are some really bad tasting ones out there. With having regular buns lately I can honestly say that the taste was really good and close to what a good non-GF bun would taste like. The fries were good and also GF. Overall it was a really good meal. I can’t speak for cross contamination because I am symptomless and don’t react to gluten in anyway, so there is no fallout after eating gluten. I hope this review helps!

Very inconsistent with what is and not gluten free. Told something different every time. Even the managers have no idea what’s going on.

I am not only a Celiac person but also a employee of the Cheesecake Factory. I have noticed it has gone downhill when it comes to Being taken seriously when it says gluten-free on the ticket. I have tried to eat at work many times 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. I will be updating if it does. 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 love working there just wish the kitchen took it seriously.

Originally I thought I was going to the Cheesecake Factory in Greenwood. They seem to have a higher celiac friendly percentage. Sadly this one does not. I was pleasantly surprised that the menu had so many options. I had shrimp with pasta. It was good. I did not get terribly sick from it, but I did have some tummy trouble later in the day (ate there for lunch). I feel like they would like to be celiac friendly, they may just not understand exactly HOW to do it. I do think they took extra precautions with my good.
