Asked server for a gluten free menu and they had a separate printed menu with all available gluten free options. The menu stated clearly what was gluten free, what items could be made gluten free and how to order them, and which items were fried in a shared frier.

I ordered the salmon without sauce as indicated by the menu and the food was served exactly as I ordered. Did not have any reaction to the food.

They also had ciders on draft and plenty of other cans, bottles, and cocktails.

I told my server that I had a gluten allergy and confirmed that the grilled chicken wasn’t coated in anything and also ordered the side salad because the fries are in a shared fryer. Plate came out with fries all over the place. I let the expo know that I couldn’t eat them and ordered the salad - he came back less than two minutes later with the same plate just with a salad. And said he let the chef know to be more careful with gluten free. Being wary of cross contact, I ended up packing up my food and giving it to someone on the street. The wait staff and kitchen were really busy and backed up, but I’ll stick to just drinks here next time.

The staff was extremely knowledgeable about what gluten is and are very careful with cross contamination. They marked it special and the chef brought it to our table as well to ensure that my order wasn’t contaminated along the way.

Terrible. My daughter and I ordered a sandwich and burger on a GF bun. They were out of gf bread. We decided to share nachos. They were out of those. I then got a salad and asked for no cheese. It came with cheese. We will not be back
