I have severe Celiac and this location has never made me sick. I almost always get the 4 cheese pasta and love it! Sadly, they don’t have many cheesecake options and they don’t carry the coffee cheesecake anymore. If you like chocolate, the Godiva one is GF though VERY rich.

My team at work decided to eat here, so I had to try and find something safe to eat. I ordered the filet mignon with no seasoning and a side salad. It was good enough, but kind of pricey. I probably wouldn't have ordered it if the company wasn't paying for it, but I didn't get sick which was a nice surprise.

I called to see if they have gluten free options and they said they didn’t. So I didn’t even go in

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.

I just got cheesecake from here. They only one that is GF is the Godiva chocolate cheesecake. It was delicious! They are all kept in the same spot so I was a little worried, but they changed their gloves and used a different knife to get it out for me. I didn’t get sick, but know it’s quite risky!

Out of the few gluten free options, almost everything here is cross contaminated. I ended up ordering salmon. I couldn’t get cheesecake though because the cheesecake is all in the same case and when I asked for a slice out of a new one, they said the others were all frozen. Not a good experience!

I had a really good experience here, but unlike other reviewers, I didn't get pasta. My burger, vegetables, and cheesecake were all made with care. Perhaps avoiding pasta is the key?

Third time is usually the charm... not this time! We love Cheesecake Factory but they always mess up on the order and regular noodles get mixed in with gluten free noodles. Not gluten friendly at all. Don't go! My wife has left sick every time.

Ate here for dinner last night and had a great experience! We let our server know of our allergies/food issues as we ordered and had no issues afterward! We even got dessert! They had a dedicated fryer.

I have noticed it has gone downhill when it comes to Being taken seriously when it says gluten-free. I have tried to eat here many times (when I used to work there) 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. 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 loved working there just wish the kitchen took it seriously.

Do not eat here! I was told everything that I had was gluten free, but my salad came out with croutons and I could tell my pasta wasn’t gluten free. I still chose to eat them after they fixed my salad and got sick.

Had a burger with salad. Server was very knowledgeable about what needed to be substituted to make the meal safe and made sure he checked everything before putting the order in (e.g. fries not safe due to fryer). Was very impressed. Edit: ordered a cheesecake slice to go, the one in the display case for was contaminated so I asked for a fresh slice from the back which they happily accommodated.
