    Just finished dinner Fat Hen. I had "The Rib" the best bbq short ribs have had in years. The meat was fall off the bone tender. This place is awesome and very gluten free friendly. Best meal we had in Charleston. This is a must stop.

    All around excellent! Staff was friendly and very Celiac knowledgable. My wife really enjoyed her meal knowing she wasn't going to get sick from cross contamination! We will be back!

    My favorite restaurant in all of Charleston. Amazing food, service, and atmosphere. Located in Johns Island, not far from Downtown. Staff is well trained. I get The Rib, which is short ribs with BBQ sauce and the fries are made in a dedicated fryer. Also have crab cakes that are gf! They've won all kinds of awards. No reservations unless 6 or more. But You must must go here!

    BEST RESTAURANT EVER!!! I had ribs, fries and creamed corn, they were the best ribs I have ever had, they literally fell right off the bone and the flavor was perfect. They had a separate fryer for gluten free fries and they were cooked and seasoned perfectly, the corn was so fresh and delicious. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about gluten, and the place was so cute. I'm going back for my birthday! The only downside is it's VERY pricy, but worth it for a special occasion.

    Only thing not offered was GF bread. Enjoyed fresh local tilefish and veggies. A bit noisy in dining room, but great food.

    Wonderful! They marked gluten-free items on the menu, and even offered to fry my pomme frites in a fresh fryer.

    Their gluten free menu was great. It was part of the regular menu and just had stars beside the GF items. We had the coq au vin, the flounder nicoise, and the duck confit. All of them were excellent and GF. The waitress did bring this lovely piece of bread to the table because she hadn't realized we were gluten free, but took it away as soon as she realized. Their homemade lemonade was delicious as well. Our visit to charleston and it's surrounding areas has been fabulous. We come from Texas, and there is a general dearth of great GF options there, so we will be returning to charleston as often as we can, simply because the food is so much friendlier to us here. Awesome.
