Its a great expert of colonial dining! There are options on the menu and I was told other dishes could be altered. I had the duckling, mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies. Everything was delicious and the duck cooked perfectly with honey glaze and mango chutney. Huge portion! Had creme brûlée for dessert! Atmosphere and service were perfect. Called ahead and had a small birthday cake made for my son with writing on it (not a gf item but a good service for $25). Parking garage across the street and in a fabulous historic part of the city to walk around if your visiting Philadelphia. Walk ins are welcome. Average dinner plate $29, so a little higher than some but great for a special occasion. I would definitely return!
Of the 3 dinners we had in Philly, this one was by far the least impressive. After reading reviews on here we had higher expectations, but unfortunately we were very disappointed. I'll look past the 1 hour wait btwn placing our food order and actually receiving it from our waiter (even on a Tuesday night), the slightly bloated prices for touristy food, but after eating at several gluten free places without any problems my wife had a reaction to her dinner here. They do have items clearly marked gluten free in their regular menu, and claim to make other dishes gf on request, but we didn't take the chance. We were also told by our waiter that one of the 3 breads brought to the table was gluten free (corn and molasses blend), but this was served on the same plate as wheat bread and had a flour dusting (not sure if wheat or gf). I did try the "gf" bread and did not have a reaction. Although it was delicious it seemed too good to be true and therefore I did not let my wife (who is more sensitive to gluten) try the bread.
My husband has celiac and we ate here, very safe for him and delicious! He did not get sick, we are here 3 times during our visit Great historic setting and fantastic service! We will definitely return.
Gluten free items are marked on the menu. I had a huge steak and shrimp which was good. My daughter had the rack of lamb and it was absolutely delicious!! Look out for a buy one entree get one entree free coupon in the local tourist paper. We were a party of six and they accepted three coupons on a Friday night. (Not valid on Saturday). It saved us about $70.
Had a decent array of gluten- free options all marked on the menu! Love when places do that. No gf bread options though. The place itself is definitely an experience that is worthwhile.
