    The owner’s children are gluten free so they understand the gluten free lifestyle. Pasta was fabulous! Lots of gf options! Loved it!

    12/20/17 Update - so I decided to give Club Car a second try. I loved this place prior to diagnosis and felt like last time was probably an anomaly. Glad to report it was. Waitress was friendly, answered questions, and assured me it was safe. Glad to report I had a delicious gluten free meal. They have a dedicated gluten free menu (with lots of options) and a separate cooking area. When I asked about GF options and how items were prepared, the waitress was extremely dismissive. My dining partner who is not GF was given the 100% wrong item. I can only hope my food was actually gf. Next day update: my food was definitely not gluten free

    This is hands down the best place I have ate at that offers Gluten Free items. There are so many items for Gluten Free that it took me almost 10 minutes to decide! I had the Georgia Pork sandwich, with potato salad as the side, and Oh My Gosh! Sooo delicious I ate the whole thing, and I never do that. The bun was toasted to perfection, and it had a nice crunch to it with every bite. I also had the Cinnamon Toast Cruch Martini and it was super delicious. I will suggest this location to anyone and everyone that needs Gluten Free options when going to a restaurant. Thank you to the staff and BOH for being so accommodating to our allergies/disease.

    This is our go-to restaurant now. We trust the staff and know that our food will be prepared carefully. They have a very large gf menu and our servers have always been very knowledgeable. The food is excellent. We just wish they had a dedicated fryer.

    This is the best Gluten Free restaurant for safety and for taste overall. They always are very careful to make sure you get gluten free and they educate you on what they do to make your food safe. The family who owns this restaurant has a child who eats gluten free so they pay attention to the details. We have gone there for years! love it

    Great separate menu. Owner and two kids are gluten intolerant so very aware of dietary issues. Gluten free pasta dishes fish and of course steaks.

    Club Car has an extensive gluten-free menu that includes hamburgers and pizza. There isn't any gluten-free bread, just a pizza crust. The food is really good but the service needs improvement. The wait staff is knowledgable about accommodating a gluten free diet.

    Very large gf menu with plenty of choices. Waitress was not well educated on options, which is always uncomfortable. Food seemed safe and the potato salad was one of the best I have ever had.

    Amazing celiac safe options and very knowledgable staff. The best part is you don't feel like you are missing anything ordering off the gluten free menu. The Mac and cheese is amazing and the Boursin cheese stuffed mushrooms are outstanding. Great happy hour specials too. Excellent service and ambience complete the package. Love love love!

    Best GF restaurant I have been at. Beef Stroganoff is RIDICULOUS! Can you tell I enjoyed dinner here? If you are a celiac and visiting Des Moines you better come here for dinner.

    My adult daughter and I are Celiac and were thrilled to enjoy a wonderful GF meal in a restaurant. We both are great cooks so we tend to be fussy. From drinks to tipping,for perfect service, it was probably are most enjoyable dining experience since diagnosis! The Pizza and Mac n Cheese were delicious! They even have GF Beer! Best of all, absolutely no tummy distress!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
