Our server was very knowledgeable about the gluten-free options on the menu. The gluten-free bun for my burger tasted great. I ordered the tater tots as my side and didn’t have any issues after eating. I definitely recommend this place!

I went here after several people said it was the best place in Crystal Lake for GF. I even called them and told them I was stopping with a friend for either an appetizer or dessert - we did not want a full meal as it was the middle of the afternoon - we just wanted a pleasant place to get a small bite to eat and a drink. Well, they did not have a single GF appetizer nor a single GF dessert so we left and went to Pl8 in Barrington.
I like the vibe of the place and my friends love it - if they offered these other items, I would be there regularly. As for meals though, given prices, I'd still rather go to The Cottage.
I have celiac and came here today with my friends. The staff was very thorough is explaining their experience and processes to provide a gluten free/friendly environment for those with celiac. The food and the staff were wonderful! I had zero digestive issues after dining and am very pleased! I will definitely return!
They totally have gluten free options, right on the menu. I got a burger and flatbread and the bun and gluten free crust were great! Definitely recommend.
Menu changed in the winter and they are slowing adding back the items from old menu. Not as many GF options...kitchen not dedicated even long time staff seemed annoyed at GF requests. "Yeah I think that's gluten free" without even checking. Request to speak to manager if celiac. No GF beer. Food has gone downhill for sure.
Changed menus, did not have any gluten free items listed. Said they could make gluten free versions. Got sick and will not be going back.
They have a gluten free menu, the food is delicious, service is good, atmosphere is great BUT I was sick as soon as I got home (15 min car ride). Huge gluten belly and all that other fun stuff. very thankful I was already home when I got sick.
Great place! Very aware staff and delicious gf food!
Went here for lunch....had a menu that had several options for GF items...had a build your own black angus burger and it was delish! The bun was pretty good, didn't crumble the minute I took a bite. Had chili as my side that was very tasty. No problems later either! Would definitely return.
Really accommodating staff. Mgr. Liz coordinated with chef Zach and our server Randy to help me find menu options that were both gluten-free (of which there are a good number), as well as free of other of my many food allergens. And there was no hint of irritation or unwillingness as you sometimes run into at restaurants. Would definitely eat here again.
Great burger and gluten free bun option. Fresh food from local farms.
Great experience eating here with my celiac husband. He had the pizza , I had the salmon , all GF . Good GF beer and cider choices, good staff.5
Lots of options. Manager has celiac family member. Excellent GF pizza. Well trained waiters are friendly and willing to ask kitchen staff.
