They didnt have many choices for me. Im not sure if its because I have celiacs with other allergies or not. They were not very knowledgable on celiacs. They basically told me they had nothing on the menu I could eat and made me a very plain peice of chicken with no seasoning. I have had the gluten free cheesecake and it was safe. Thats because they are pre-made. Im not even sure they make the cheesecakes there.

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!

I ordered their only GF salad & GF cheesecake. I’m uncertain which made me sick. But I’m sooooo sick. I don’t know if it is full blown gluten yet or just cross-contamination….but it feels like I ate gluten.

The waiter was awesome and helped me order celiac safe food and even got my slice of cheesecake himself since he wasnt sure if the bakery staff was educated on the protocol for celiac customers.

The gluten free burger bun was delicious! I was very grateful for the ease of ordering GF here. Many menu items are available gluten free upon request, and are clearly marked as so on the menu. I did not feel like I had any kind of issues or reactions after.
