    Try the Horse Dung tasting menu! Paired with with fermented Bison piss that will delight and tantalize your taste buds after each course, and double the delight during multiple trips you will make to the toilet to vomit! Savour the flavour twice! Save room for gluten free treats, made with fresh ginger to settle the stomach for the ride home. Or stay and socialize at the bar, with whomever you came with...because everyone else knows to go elsewhere. Perfect for couples who enjoy solitude!

    Food is excellent. They can make almost anything GF but I've been coming here for the past 5 yrs and their service has been getting slower and slower. While I was waiting for my food, I heard the same thing from the table next to me. Also, last time, they placed my burger on top of a regular bun. This makes me nervous now whenever I come back. Whatever is going on, these mishaps will be the downfall of this once great eatery.

    The calamari is amazing - best calamari (GF or not) that I've had! The lobster mac and cheese is good and has generous chunks of lobster (note: it is made with GF penne not GF elbow macaroni). Lobster roll was creamy but fries were overdone.

    Just went here and the food was just ok. Nothing special. Their coleslaw however was really delicious! I like that they can make anything gluten free here and they make their own gluten free flour. The service was horrendous!!! We waited at least 45 minutes for our food to come and the place was EMPTY. Our waiter never came to check on us, and he was not knowledgeable about anything in the restaurant.

    Wonderful food and service! Two celiacs, and neither of us have ever had a problem here. Delicious meals every time we go, and they have vegetarian options as well.

    Amazing restaurant! So celiac and gluten free friendly! My 5 year old was so happy he could eat anything. He was able to eat the same meal as the other kids, loved his corn muffins and brownie dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant. Not to mention the staff was wonderful and the food was delicious! Will definitely be going back again!

    It's great to have a complete menu and a place to eat without having to worry. I've eaten here a handful of times and the food has been sort of hit-and-miss, but it's difficult to complain when you know how hard it can be to go out to eat. The service is great and the variety of options are a luxury for people with celiac. Glad to have a place like this to go to.

    The service and food were excellent. It was nice to go out where they had food for people that don't have any issues and having my wife find something GOOD to eat since she needs to be Gluten Free Will definitely be back

    At Dark Horse, I can eat worry-free! They "get it". The food is fantastic! And as an added bonus, Ross and his staff go out of their way to make you feel right at home. I wish I could eat here everyday!

    Awesome restaurant and great gluten free options! The whole menu is gluten free including soups! I had a great clam chowder! They are great with cross contamination and make all their gluten free products on site and buy the gluten-full products from other providers to avoid cross contamination. Would highly recommend!

    Lots of GF options. The calamari was great but the seafood Mac & cheese & seared scallops were disappointing.

    Love this place!! The owner has created the menu so everything can be made gluten free. I believe that he may have a gluten allergy so all servers are aware of GF. They have yummy gluten free beers too. I do prefer their lunch menu over the dinner. Great place!

    This place is great. Everything single item on the menu can be made gluten free. The bread used for the burger was home made artisan style. Desserts were excellent.

    I ate here with my husband and it was amazing! I'm GF for 2 years and this was the first restaurant where I didn't feel left out. Some of the most delicious things on the menu were gf. The beer was ok...I wish they had more selection in that department. Dessert was awesome! Chocolate cake. There was live music and ALOT of oldies were played, my kinda music. The ambiance with decorating is unique and awesome, ESP if u love music. I'm also handicapped so the ramp was thru the back of building, which was weird, but we got the grand tour that way lol! Waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Noisy kids running around were a bit annoying cuz the seats are tight...so not much space away from them. I know this place was legit GF cuz I didn't get violently ill like I wud if I had eaten gluten. DEFINITELY WORTH A TRY;)
