Responsive service, plenty of gluten-free options, excellent food!

We let the server know we needed gluten-free and were given gluten-free menus as well as personal assistance from the manager to ensure our needs were met. Definitely succeeded! Everything we chose was tasty, and although we had different persons in our party with celiac and gluten sensitivity, none were glutened.

We definitely will return and highly recommend to others!

Great experience! The first thing the server asked us was if we had any food allergies. After I told her that I have celiac disease, she walked me through the gluten free options and asked if I had any questions. My stuffed mushrooms, salad, and steak were so good! Definitely recommend.

The waitress was incredibly attentive. Brought out a food allergen list to show what was safe and what wasn't. Lots of qualify GF options, and the food was incredible.

I am giving this restaurant five stars because of the level of safety I felt ordering. The chef came to our table to discuss ingredients and the dishes he could make gluten free for us, should we desire. I opted for the grilled chicken salad. The chicken was an ample portion and flavorful. We felt the food quality was above average. To be fair, we didn't order anything adventurous, so there may be some gems we did not uncover on the menu. They offer daily specials, so there's a decent variety and the chef was knowledgeable and willing to make substitutions. That alone would make some celiacs feel comfortable as well. Give it a try. See what you think.

The chef came out to discuss ingredients and make sure I could eat safely. I chose the hamburger on a gf bun and a baked potato. This was the best gf bun I have ever eaten. Our waitress has gluten issues too so she was very careful. I am not celiac but highly reactive.

Do not eat here If you are gluten free and dairy free. My waitress told me the fryer was gluten free and when they came out I asked another waiter who said they were not safe. My first waiter came out and said "oh, you didn't want to risk it?" All I was able to get was a hamburger... Not great

Server Greg Judd was excellent - he was very knowledgeable about dietary needs and the manager checked over and delivered food. I had one of their burgers on an excellent GF bun and Tennessee grits. The fryer is not gluten free. My non-GF companions also LOVED their food and said it was the best cobbler they'd ever eaten. Perfect location in downtown Gatlinburg and they validate parking. Highly recommended!

Gluten Free options are somewhat tough in Gatlinburg. This restaurant does get it, with a separate menu and a visit from the manager to answer all questions on preparation. Went there twice while staying in the Smokies for dinner & lunch. Sever's were also relatively knowledgeable and able to get answers we had on the orders.

My daughter & I are both celiac, but are relatively asymptomatic.

They do have a gf menu with multiple options, including a gf bun if you want a burger. However, since I have to be dairy-free as well, that left me with very few options. I had the rotisserie chicken with a plain baked potato and added mushrooms. I also had the stuffed mushrooms as an app(they list as optional gf). Unfortunately, just a few minutes into my entree I began feeling nauseated. I don't have celiac so I am thinking it was dairy. The food that I did eat was pretty good tasting and the server was very attentive.

Amazing filet mignon! I had the filet mignon salad, the steak was so flavorful which helped make up for the sad excuse of a salad it's served on.

Server was attentive to gluten precautions and I was able to order off a gluten free menu that had many choices. NY strip steak was delicious, blue cheese grits were delicious, and mashed potatoes were delicious as well.

Wonderful meal. I felt good choices for gluten free. I had a filet wth their mashed potatoes from real potatoes. Also a side of broccoli. The filet was very tender. Got to top off my meal with a nice vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce.

we looked at the gluten free menu before we went and were pleased with the options, when we went there and told the waitress about the allergy, she assured there would be no problems and even the manager came over to make sure we were satisfied and to ensure that the meal would be completely gf. We also had a dairy allergy and there were options for that too but not very many options for sides

I had a delicious steak with no issues and the manager welcomed us back. I would like to repeat what Emily has written…

Wonderful restaurant! They went above and beyond to ensure that the food was cooked in a safe way and that I felt comfortable eating here. I did not get sick and felt like they really cared. I highly recommend eating here! If you call ahead they will take care of you and make sure the server and staff know how to handle your food.

Limited gf options. Their menu consists of the few items that are naturally gf. No special breads and fries are not gf.

However, they were super friendly and sensitive to allergies. Went across the street to a sister co the get veggies with no dairy for my son.

In the end, a safe place to eat, super friendly, great ambiance but limited options. Steaks are amazing tho!

Warm environment. They have a separate gf menu. No gf beer or cider options. We ordered burgers w/no bun, smoky mountain rainbow trout, and the grilled chicken salad. There was some confusion in the kitchen with our order, but the server got the manager and sorted everything out. They re-made all our food and it was fantastic!! Fantastic customer service!

Steaks are amazing and our waiter noticed that I had the GF menu before I even said anything. Pricey but if you only eat out a few times this has to be one of those times!
