Service was exceptionally friendly, prices were reasonable, food was satisfying. I have celiac and can't eat gluten. In order to avoid gluten, or any other allergen, ask for their Allergies Book. I appreciate their attention to detail in their book about the allergens in their food. There are not a huge amount of options, but you can eat here if you order carefully. I can't vouch for cross-contamination, but I did not have any reactions after eating here. My only complaint is that breakfast grains, including hash browns and grits, *all* contain gluten! I ordered their excellent g-f mashed potatoes with my eggs. Dinner was fish with veggie sides and mashed or baked potato.

I am not celiac and don’t have to worry about contamination, but I still had a pretty bad experience. There is no meal on the menu that doesn’t include something with gluten. I asked to substitute the biscuits in the meal I was ordering for another side. The waitress said they couldn’t do that and she said they could give me the gravy on the side as if that made a difference. I ended up just giving the biscuits to someone I was with and paying extra to get a different side for myself. It was very disappointing that they had such a lack of understanding about gluten allergies.

This was not good at all. No real gluten free options with high risk of cross contamination. I was sick for a week after. Would not recommend if you value your health.

They have a very wide variety of different GF foods. I’ve never had a reaction to anything. Told them I had a gluten allergy and they made sure nothing got CC even brought my food out by itself.

I’ve been to this location twice recently Thanksgiving and my mom’s birthday yesterday. After choosing gluten free items from their allergen menu and being very clear about my diagnosis—Sick both times afterward.
