Asked for a gluten free menu and was handed an allergy book. I asked the server for information on food prep and informed him I am Celiac. He said the salad was prepared separately, and if on the allergy menu, should be okay. I think there’s too much risk of cross contamination to be really celiac safe.

It would be great if family friendly restaurants provided gluten free options on their kids menus. I was provided a gluten free menu by our server but my 7 and 5 year olds didn't want to pick from a choice of trout, salad and streak.

I gave them a one because at least they were honest. No real menu just the allergy book....and they point blank said they make biscuits all day long all over the kitchen so anything can be contaminated :(. Very sad as this use to be one of my most FAVORITE restaurants.

Good service and willingness to provide gluten free menu. Also have list of the most common allergies and the foods that can be consumed. Not a large choice but was helpful. Does have cross contamination but has a list of things that do not apply. Is helpful for those of us with gluten sensitivy.

If you got to their website they have a great list of items that are gluten free and also list all other allergens. It makes it super easy to choose gf items. I have eaten at multiple Cracker Barrel locations and followed this list and have never had a single problem when eating there.

I had the best experience here today! My waitress wrote down everything I needed and thankfully one of the cooks had celiac so she fixed my food personally. So thankful for the incredible staff and excellent food!

You have to look through a long allergen list to figure out what you can eat. It isn’t easily navigated, and would be better if they just separated the very few things that you can eat from the rest.

I asked for no gravy on the mashed potatoes but they brought them with gravy anyway. The gravy was touching the steak fries and the grilled cat fish. I said i couldn’t have it and she said she will have them remake the mashed potatoes. I said i cant have ANY of it because the gravy is touching everything - she made a face like i was a toddler that didn’t like food touching which upset my husband and he had to explain gluten intolerance and celiac to her.

They ended up remaking it all and everything came back out on different plates. Food was fine, experience was awful.

I'm not sure why people give 5 star reviews to places like this! They use all sorts of artificial, unhealthy ingredients. They have zero knowledge of Celiac disease and gluten. The waitress thought rice was gluten, but the gravy is okay. ???? Seriously, don't eat at these types of restaurants. Even the ranch dressing has gluten in it.

Gluten free “menu” available upon request. Basically it’s a spiral bound book that shows an “x” on items that contain gluten. The waitress states fried items are all used in the same fryer.
