    I've been coming to this restaurant for a number of years and they recently took the step to become certified gluten free. The food is always delicious, service is wonderful, and the certification shows their commitment to keeping a clean kitchen. Must visit if you are in the area!

    They may have gluten free options but the last time my family and I ate there we were all sick for three days. Never going back

    My husband is gluten intolerant and I have celiacs. Neither of us got sick when we are here. It was so nice for my husband since every time he goes out to eat he just feels stressed about gluten since so many restaurants don't understand it. 50 south was very understanding and knowledgable. We felt very comfortable there. The majority of the menu can be prepared gluten free at no extra cost. It was so nice to have almost the whole menu to choose from. We had fried calamari, chicken wings, fish and chips, Alfredo with steak and a merengue covered in Dior for dessert. The apps were excellent! Very flavorful! The main dishes just needed salt. Great service and they had little gluten free toothpick labels to give you and the staff communication that your plate is gluten free so as to not have a mix up. We will absolutely go back and have more meals here in the future!

    Went gf for health reasons 9 months ago. visited Saratoga 2 weeks ago and Fifty South was the most comfortable I've felt eating out since then. Everyone was super knowledgeable and compassionate. Food was out of this world. Pancakes were outstanding, so fluffy! We will absolutely be back.

    I felt absolutely safe eating here. The food is excellent and the wait staff is very knowledgeable. The menu is clearly marked and there are so many options I've been missing eating since I was diagnosed with Celiac's. My husband said it was the best burger he'd ever had!

    This place deserves all the accolades. We were staying in Saratoga and wanted to walk to dinner but then read about this place. My son has celiac so our options are often limited. At 50 south almost everything is GF (celiac safe) and they isolate the gluten items. Their attention to detail is to be admired and put us at ease so we could enjoy eating out.

    My friend and I both have celiac and had the most delicious meal here. We felt so safe because the restaurant is GF-certified and our waiter, Seth, was super knowledgeable and helpful at answering any questions. The entire menu could be made GF, so we indulged in all the pre-Celiac favorites we've missed (GF French fries, chicken tenders, and an amazing omelette fajita)

    Fifty south has a separate fryer and was very knowledgeable about allergies and eager to serve. They serve house-made potato chips and tapenade for a free appetizer. I ordered a vegetable soup and the chicken Marsala. It was a cute place with live music the night we were there.

    Amazing food. Certified Gluten free. They asked if we were gluten free when making reservations. They even use separate plates for gluten and non-gluten dinners. Staff was very knowledgeable. Very impressed with the food and service.

    Wide variety of options including gluten free fried calamari and a ton of dessert options. One of our favorite places.

    They have the most amazing GF fried calamari with sweet Thai chili sauce & remoulade! GF fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp is phenomenal as well. I have celiac, have eaten here many times & never been sick after. Food is pricey but worth it since I can't find truly GF fried food anywhere in the area.

    First time I loved this place. Gluten free fare is wonderful and safe but the value for what you get isn't there and the seasonings are weird. Like the pad Thai. Not impressed. I've tried many things there. Breakfast is worth it.
