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.

The options are great, but it’s simply not a safe place for celiacs. If you’re just avoiding gluten and don’t have to be strict, then go for it, but our waitress assured us that it was not safe for celiacs.

The staff seemed knowledgeable and were able to answer my questions about separate prep areas and safe handling of allergies. Unfortunately there was a non GF noodle mixed in with my GF pasta, which I did not find until the end. Not sure how it happened. The manager was very concerned and helpful with the situation, but the damage was done and I was sick for days after. Celiac diners beware.

Really? I find it hard to believe anyone had a decent experience at the fashion mall Indianapolis location. When discussion gf needs due to celiac, the waitress told me there was absolutely nothing I could eat there safely. I was a bit embarrassed since I was with a group so I just asked for some type of fruit in a bowl. She returned to tell me they weren't comfortable serving me as "there was flour all over back there". I was mortified, felt like they were saying "my kind weren't welcome there". I wanted to crawl out. Not to mention that was another gift card I had to give away.

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.

Had a delicious meal here on a quick stop during a road trip. The server was well informed about gf and I felt very full but not glutened by the time we left!

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.
