Disappointed. After reading the reviews about a designated fryer, I was excited for the steak with sweet potato fries. I asked the waitress to confirm the fryer was designated GF. She didn’t think it’s designated anymore. She went to the kitchen to check for me and they confirmed they cannot safely make fries for me in their fryer. The person I was eating with ordered the Scallop Risotto (a GF menu item) and it was so thick and gummy that she described it as “inedible glue”. We didn’t eat much of our meals.

They understand celiac disease and cross contamination. They have a dedicated fryer. The delicious food was expertly prepared with excellent service. Wonderful dining experience!

Many GF choices and delicious food. The lobster lettuce wraps were superb. For entree had the shrimp cakes which were huge and delicious. Dedicated GF fryer. If you want quieter table ask for one in back room away from bar.
