    I ordered an omelette off the GF menu with seasoned potatoes. The omelette was huge and after I ate it I commented that there must be a lot of eggs in there. The waitress said she only thought there may be 2-3 eggs. I wondered what else could have made them so fluffy? My stomach later told me that they may have used done kind of flour. I suffered for a few days. Beware!!!!

    So I saw on this app it leads to believe this restaurant uses Pamela's Gluten Free Baking Mix, thinking they would have gf pancakes or waffles. So I went and asked for the gf menu, but all I got was one of those allergy menus where you have to look at the "wheat" section and see which is safe. Only a handful of items stated there was no wheat, and they were just side items. Nothing mentioned of pancakes or waffles. I just ordered bacon, eggs, and potatoes. It was good but I was disappointed in the very little options for gf, especially with no pancakes or waffles. And I'm not sure how their strictness is on cross contamination, so I'm giving it a "No" for celiac friendly.

    Actually this restaurant has no clue what GF means. There is no GF menu. They have an allergens list that accompanies the menu but anyone expecting any GF special offerings is mistaken. Sorry.

    Although First Watch offers a "GLUTEN FREE MENU" they really don't have much to choose from. Example; one can order the Eggs Benedict yet it is not served with gluten free english muffin. In fact it is not served an english muffin at all. Oh forget about the hollandaise sauce (it has gluten) their for it is not served with any sauce. WHAT'S THE POINT IN ADVERTISING A GLUTEN FREE MNEU. I find this to be deceiving and insulting when they could very well have gluten free flour to make english muffins and to add to the hollandaise sauce. Oh did I mention you can order gluten free pancakes with out the pancakes. You get a plate of syrup. On the daily special's menu they did have a delicious Quinua with tomato, kale, and a yummy pesto sauce.

    Just ask for the GF menu - they have a separate one that has many options and is quite detailed! Wonderful, friendly, attentive and accommodating staff. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful. Delicious food! (Though it does get very busy, especially on weekends..but the wait is never very long) We love this location and always have a great experience here.

    I would give this a higher rating had my server been a little more knowledgeable of what she was offering:/ I felt ok about ordering the pesto chicken quinoa bowl though because I didn’t have to substitute anything-it’s gluten free to begin with- so I ate it and it was delish! no after effects.

    I used to feel safe eating here. The waitress said, we have been instructed to say we cannot guarantee your food will really be gluten free. We make no guarantees, ok? I said, "No, not ok. I can actually get a safe gluten free meal at Waffle House. They take care of me there." Her attitude makes me want to call management and explain how to keep a darn kitchen safe and how to tell your servers to speak to people to reassure them even if you can't "guarantee." Be specific if you go and talk to the manager.

    Not a separate gf menu. I’ve eaten here 3 times without incident...just told the server I had a gluten allergy. They are unable to toast the bread for celiac (shared toaster), so I’d skip the bread as it’s typical dry, bland gf bread when not toasted. The juices are very good (recommend the kale) and the millionaires bacon is sweet with a hint of spice. It’s not your typical greasy diner...I’d definitely recommend for fresh options! No gf pancakes or anything, but that’s to be expected and a rare treat when you find it out.

    Although they have a disclaimer that they don’t have a dedicated GF kitchen space, they have Power Bowls that are GF, and Udi’s GF bread for toast. They have frittatas also, and many healthful options. I didn’t give them five stars because they should have a separate GF menu.

    I was so excited to eat here after all the positive comments from others. Our waiter was fantastic and even put mine and my sons order on a separate ticket clearly labeled with allergy. I know Celiac is not an allergy. However when our order came out with regular bread. The waitress that brought it out whisked it back to kitchen. It was back out wit Audi’s bread, but clearly the same omelette. I let our waiter know that it was not a safe practice for Celiacs. He apologized but no visit from the manager and still paying full price left a sour taste in my mouth. I hope we don’t get sick. 😢

    Does not have a separate gluten free menu, but our server Trisha was GF and sat down and went over every item on the menu that is gluten free. She said all of their ingredients are all contained separately to prevent cross contamination. They have a separate toaster for GF bread. Any egg dishes/omelettes/frittata on the menu can be made GF simply by not ordering the English muffin that normal comes with. She also said everyone is very cautious when it comes to food allergies and will wash hands, change gloves, clean equipment, etc. I was super impressed and Trisha was an amazing server!

    My server was very accommodating and answered all my questions (I didn’t have too many as I already had specific dishes in mind). They have gluten free bread that is stored apart from the regular bread but all the bread is placed into the same toaster. (This is the reason for 4/5 stars instead of 5/5) I substituted my bread for fruit with my hash dish. Excellent food, did not get sick and felt confidence in the wait staff to properly accommodate me.

    They have lots of gluten free options plus gluten free toast. The only thing you’ll miss out on are the pancakes and waffles, but they have a great menu so it’s not a big deal. However, they don’t have a gluten free menu, but they might hand you a useless allergen list which pretty much says nothing is gluten free because most of the dishes come with bread which can be substituted for gluten free bread, so just ignore it and talk to the waitress instead.

    The staff was knowledgeable. There is a dedicated toaster for GF bread (with a sign by the regular toaster that says not to put in GF bread). No official GF menu, but they have a less formal printout from 2015 of the main options. It was a bit out of date but with the help of the server, I could order. I feel fine as of now (about 30 minutes after eating). There are multiple locations.

    The First Watch team was most helpful — the restaurant (I believe all locations) offer Udi’s gluten-free bread — and they WILL make French toast using be bread. The kitchen is NOT gluten-free, so there is cross-contamination risk for those with Celiac, but the team was knowledge and ready to work with us. Would definitely go back!
