They have gluten-free buns and some GF options! Server was knowledgeable. Their menu also points out options that can be made GF. Downside: their website is not updated with nutritional facts, but they have it in the restaurant.

I love this restaurant. I recommend their burgers (gluten free buns are available), their fries have a designated GF fryer, AND they have a Godiva chocolate cheesecake. If you mention you have an allergy the waiters/waitresses seem to be aware and careful.

I used to go to Cheesecake Factory all the time because they had a pretty good gluten free menu. But a few weeks ago they completely re-designed their menu and many of the GF options were eliminated (Bring back the eggplant sandwich!!). They currently have GF buns but they're not listed on the new menu at all. That makes me think they will only be available until the current stock runs out. Very disappointing.

The waiter did such a poor job managing my gf/cf requests that he ducked out and had someone else get my order right 25 minutes after my kids already had their food.

I am celiac and fear the violent sick reaction from gluten or dairy. Not just a fad diet. This place gave me no feeling of confidence.

I ordered the lowlicious cheesecake with strawberries and the four cheese gluten free pasta. I said it was an allergy and I needed there to be no cross contamination. They probably did that, but they failed to notice or inform me that the pasta itself is made in a facility containing wheat. I got sick about 20 minutes after eating. But, if you don’t have a high sensitivity to cross contaminated foods, then I would recommend this meal.

I go to this place all the time. I only had one incident were there was none GF pasta mix into my food. The manager who was GF was very good at handling the situation. I just make sure that they know I am Have a medical GF problem and that usually solves it. So be careful here but I don’t get sick ever.

Ordered the shepherds pie, which is made gluten free. Very good. They had gluten free cauliflower crust in place of their flatbread and also could have burgers gluten free. Lots of other options. Shared a gluten free cheesecake with my wife which was really good.

They didn't ask me if it was an allergy. The runner wasn't clear about the food being gluten free. Judging from the pain last night and today, I 100% was given a gluten full meal. Never again, that was awful.

DO NOT GO. I was assured 5 times my food was gluten free. It was not. Absolutely incompetent staff to let this happen. Do not trust them. The whole corporation has poor food quality management, and will ruin your evening and days to come with dread.
