I'm not Celiac, but I am gluten intolerant. I'm out of town and visited Crave tonight. The menu clearly marks all items that either are already gluten free, or can be easily modified to be made GF. I picked several items off the sides/a la carte menu, which isn't marked. I explained to the waiter that I can't eat gluten, and said, essentially, "Please don't let me order anything breaded, coated in flour, or served with bread crumbs." LOL...He apologized, and said he wasn't certain of some of my items, and that he'd go find an answer. Another member of the staff surfaced, and carefully explained that nothing I'd ordered contained gluten outright, but that I did have a risk of cross contamination in a couple of items. I don't typically react to cross contamination, so we were good. After our food arrived, I wanted to try something on my sons plate, so I asked ahead of time, they patiently went through the whole process with me again. The waiter asked about dessert, and I went "I can't eat any of them! Gluten!" And laughed, and he laughed and said that he'd check to see if he could hook me up. He came back, and said that he'd verified I could eat the chocolate cake, although there was a risk of cross contamination from the almonds. I was so stoked I could eat a dessert, and touched by how thoughtful he was being with my meal, that I ordered the chocolate cake. Worth it. It adds a few steps to the meal to have to have everything verified (often involving multiple staff members!), but I'd much rather walk through a couple of steps then have a reaction and ruin the next couple of days of my vacation! Come with your patience, and enjoy a delicious meal!
Servers are careful with your order and will ask the chef if they are unsure about anything. Very good GF meats and sides!
The dinner menu marked which entrees were gluten free and the staff also offers to make adjustments to other meals to make them gf as well. The only kids meal for my son with celiacs was a cheeseburger with a gluten free bun. Luckily that's all he needed to be happy! I am severely gluten intolerant and ordered one of the steaks which was delicious and a hard cider. They also offer two gluten free desserts. Most importantly, our server took our gluten free needs very seriously and doubled checked that everything was free from cross contamination.
We dined at Crave for the first time on a Sunday afternoon during brunch. The brunch menu was limited. The shrimp and grits with homemade andouille sausage was very good though. Other than this entree i think two salads were the only other options plus a burger w out a bun. The bloody mary options were not gluten free. We were not offered dessert and they were not listed on the brunch menu.
There is not necessarily a GF menu, but you can pick n choose items to make your meal GF friendly. Waitress was patient, and she was great to check with chef on GF options--chef seemed to be pretty knowledgeable. Looks like they offered a few GF desserts, which is rare in most restaurants. So major points!
