I was told the steak medallions could be made gluten free, though was sick afterward. Leaving 2 stars since the Godiva cheesecake was pretty good.

We have eaten here a few times with no issues afterwards. Tonight I learned they have a dedicated fryer and gf buns. Staff was knowledgeable about celiac. And not to mention the Godiva cheesecake is heavenly.

Very limited options for such a big menu. GF bun is dry and not good flavor so would recommend going without the bun. Giving 2 stars because the GF cheesecake is still delicious

I went to the Ridgedale Mall location, and staff seemed to be knowledgeable about gf menu options. However, within two hours I was sick after having a “gf” shrimp and pasta. I was too sick to even attempt to eat my maybe gf Godiva chocolate cheesecake....On the bright side, at least my meal was tasty for the few hours it was with me.

Was assured my meal was Celiac friendly after explaining many times to our waitress. Got a cheeseburger with gf bun and gf fries. Was sick within 15 minutes, full blown glutened. They obviously do not take Celiac or GF seriously. Ruined 2 days of my trip. Stay far away!!

I enjoyed a lovely omelette & my daughter had gf pasta. They served us gf toast in place of the bread basket. We were too full to have it but there was a gf cheesecake option too that looked amazing. The server understood cross contamination & advised against the fries (despite them being marked gf, they are cooked in contaminated fryers). She even warned us that gf was a ‘fad’ in Florida & to always make it clear it’s an allergy & not a preference (I know coeliac isn’t an allergy but it’s easier for others to understand that).

If you ever come here ask to sit in wendys section! Shes a celiac waitress and she went above and beyond for my sister and I who are both celiac. From bringing us gluten free toasted bun to telling us what all on the menue is gluten free. Such as the orange chicken that I thought I couldnt eat again! I had such an amazing time here and definitely recommend it to anyone!

Update July 2022: I got the same dish that I usually get but was bloated that night so got some cross contamination. I got an order to go so I feel I couldn’t explain my needs as much. Anyway be careful. Not as good as it used to be. Got the salmon and substituted green beans and got the mashed potatoes. Excellent. Got the Godiva cheesecake. Super yummy. I have had good experiences with Cheesecake factory’s across the country but I always make sure to be clear about needing gluten free and cross contamination. Always ask with cheesecake to use a clean spatula and wash hands first.

Over all its was just fine. Nothing over the top special. Had gluten free buns and has a dedicated fryer. The burger was good. Due to “staffing shortage” they had a limited menu. About 50% of the menu was not available. Our waiter was good and you can make online reservations.

Went here for lunch with daughter who is gf. Everything gf is listed on regular menu. We didn’t see much as waiter kept coming by too ask if we’re ready but we weren’t. Felt so rushed it was our first time. My daughter just got buttered noodles. She said it was good but it was all so overpriced. I was with 2 other people we all ordered fettuccine lunch.
