I looked up the things they can be gf on google ahead of time so we made ordering easy. My whole family has celiacs. My husbands ordered catfish, son ordered trout and I got the streak. Lots of sides to choose from. Salads and chicken dishes too. If you can be flexible, there is a ton of options. This was less costly than many others options as well. Service was good and food was great!

I can't say I would recommend eating at a cracker barrel if you have celiac or a gluten sensitivity, but they do have options should you need them. They have an allergen menu on their website with some gluten free items, but there is still a high risk of cross-contact.

I only ordered a side of mashed potatoes to be safe. Explained to the staff that I have celiac disease and the importance of no cross-contact. I didn't have a reaction.

They do offer a gluten free menu and have a lot of gluten free items. I’m always a little cautious since they do such a high volume of food. No gluten free breads.

Absolutely a pain to eat here. Even with the allergen menu, the risk of cross contamination is very high.

A little disappointed with the options here. There is only one entree I can safely eat gluten free at this establishment- Grilled Chicken Tenderloins, with a few safe sides (usually I choose green beans and corn).

GF options are extremely limited here because almost everything is breaded, fried or is thickened with flour.

Cross contamination is possible.

Anyone who is Celiac should not eat here.

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.
