They had Chicken Masal as a feature and I asked the bartender if it had dairy. She got mixed responses from other staff so she went out of her way to read the recipe card in the kitchen and confirmed it did have dairy. I was so impressed with her thoroughness. So I got the hummus w the GF bread option. REALLY good!

Ordered the four cheese bacon Mac and it was okay. It wasn't anything special and I wouldn't order it again. I wish I would've got something else but they seemed to understand the precautions pretty well. And I didn't get sick at all so that's good.

Delicious food and felt safe eating here. I had the Mahi Mahi tacos and they were sooo good. The rice that comes with the meal was amazing. I also had the bacon wrapped dates. Highly reccomend this place!

Several options marked on the menu. Gluten-free pizza was delicious. Even my non gluten-free free daughter loved it. One of the better gf crusts I have had.

Have eaten here for almost 7 years, and never had a bad experience!!! I recommend the fish tacos, they are amazing and 100% GF! All staff is very knowledgeable about the allergy, but if you ask for Nate, he will give you personal info, because he has a gluten allergy himself! Great place, and I highly recommend it!

I've eaten here many times and have never gotten sick. I always get the warm potato and salmon (listed under signature dishes) and it's really tasty. Yum!

No brunch options are marked gluten free, but they could make a couple of options work (and I had the amazing date appetizer just because)!

Waiter wasn't 100% knowledgable, but it worked out without me getting sick.

Our waiter,mo, was very helpful & courteous. Verified salmon dish was gluten & dairy free. Homemade mayo sauce with the dish also ok for me. Delicious. Other times I've had Brussels sprout salad good too

They have a GF menu available, which is great!! There is only one GF appetizer, the chorizo stuffed dates, and it is amazing!! I haven't ventured out and tried much food, but the lamb pizza on GF crust is great! GF beers... Bleh. But they're mixed drinks are great!

Food was really good. Beer, not so much. But they originally brought out my food in the gluten version. I had to wait an additional 20 minutes for them to remake my meal. Very frustrating.

Great atmosphere and delicious food! The wait staff is knowledgable about allergies. I had the Cedar Plank Salmon with grilled tomatoes and asparagus. The flavors exploded in my mouth! We also had the Shrimp Ceviche with Avocado Mousse served with corn chips. Delicious!

Not a huge GF variety but I had a burger with a GF bun and chips. Don't have the pickles, they are IPA pickles. They do have one cider but no GF beer.
