Overall Rating


We were served by the bartender who was clearly very knowledgeable and helpful when I said 'Celiac'. I've only been to one other place that has said 'almost everything we can make gluten free'. They brought out (good!) gluten free crackers with the cheeseboard and my made the soy brised pork with grits gluten free. It was an amazing experience and I cannot recommend enough!

Not celiac

Overall Rating


This restaurant doesn’t have a gluten free menu; instead, the chef makes adjustments up your meal to make it gluten free. It was amazing to have the whole menu available to me, and for the food to be excellent as well. It’s expensive, but hands-down the best good I’ve had in this area.

Celiac friendly?
