Sometimes great, sometimes just fine. Crab Fries and Sweet Crabby (the BEST) fries are safe, as well as their wings and any steak/sandwich without the bun. As far as protocol, the wait staff is hit or miss. I have never had an issue but have had to stress the severity of my “allergy” many times before. Veteran servers have been vigilant and fantastic. As well as having been told they didn’t have a gluten free menu the first time we asked (hostesses were clearly not trained), and accidentally being given barbecue sauce for fries (we caught it within one bite and was an honest mistake at the airport location. Unfortunately I had a mild reaction). I miss getting a real steak but nice to know I can still go to an iconic philly establishment and get their fries at sports events.

They have RedBridge beer, gluten free fries (which we get without the seasoning because it tastes better), cheese burger without the bun.

The gluten-free cheese steak is just a cheesesteak served on a plate without a bun. But it cost a dollar less than the regular sandwich. They have one kind of gluten free beer, Redbridge. They said the crab fries are gluten free. As far as gluten-free meals go, it's not bad.

Good fries. They have a gluten free menu as well. I'm worried it's not really done in a dedicated fryer.

I love the crab fries here and have never had an issue. I ate here last night and got wings off gluten free menu and have been sick the last day. Do not get the wings!

I was fed gluten here after ordering off of their GF menu and being very specific with our twit of a server. After I notified her that the boneless wings (which there menu states are all GF) came out and I took a bite, she said "Oh they are new, so our menu is wrong." Not only was every order in our party of 3 screwed up, but we could never find our server to get things fixed. We eventually realized that she kept sitting down in the corner of the restaurant, because we were her only table.

Okay, okay. Most of their food is bar food, but everyone goes there for their Crabby Fries anyway, right?! They're gluten free AND they don't fry in soybean oil - SCORE! I LOVE the cheesy and cinnamon dips for the crabby and sweet potato fries and actually once made a meal out of their mixed fry basket (but don't tell anyone haha).

Definitely a MUST try, especially since it's normally so hard to find gluten free cheese fries in Philly!

Went and the waitress explained that they are supposed to have a dedicated fryer but they often DO NOT because they use both for everything when they get busy. We decided not to eat here after speaking with the waitress.

I was so excited to find out I could still have the crab fries! What a treat. The fryer is dedicated and the staff was kind. We flew through the airport on Thanksgiving and I couldn’t believe they were open but was so happy that I even got an extra order of the fries to take with me (and of course tipped well).

Order crab fries with cheese, aioli, and crab meat, crab nachos, and steam clams with butter. The waiter seemed knowledgeable and food was good. Didn’t get sick.
