I had a wonderful experience here. The waitress was very knowledgeable about Gluten free options. GF items were marked on the menu. They had a GF bread option as well to replace the biscuit for your order. I had the Piedmont Omelette with grits and GF Toast along with a Mimosa flight. The juices that they use for the flight are GF as well.

The kitchen is absolutely not safe for anyone with celiac disease. All items that are designated as "gluten friendly" are highly subject to cross-contamination through various processes. Even if the items manage to somehow not get gluten in them, the plates themselves are often dusted with fresh biscuit crumbs, as the biscuits sit above the plates in the kitchen. On top of that, no employee is trained on how to serve food that is safe for anyone with allergies or intolerances, so there is really no way that an employee could help keep a customer safe even if they wanted to, as that employee wouldn't have the knowledge needed to make that possible.

They make the biscuits in house, so there will be flour dust. Celiacs beware. Go elsewhere.

I ordered the spinach avocado omelet with a side of bacon and grits with no biscuit and our server, Mariah R was amazing. She was aware of my allergy and made sure it was noted and told the cook in the back and gloves were changed. I had no sort of reaction or sickness and usually immediately if I have any sort of contamination I get sick AND that did NOT happen. We will definitely go back. The menu showed the gluten free items and they were aware of the GF allergy and made sure we were taken care of! Mariah was amazing !!

The most delicious grits! Server was knowledgeable and helpful. They were slammed and she still took the time to dip apple butter from a new jar for me. Each order comes with a complimentary biscuit and unfortunately I got toasted Udis sandwich bread. It was safe and toasted separately from everything else.

Flying Biscuit is a good place to eat. This was my first time eating at this location, and the menu is different (and didn’t seem to have as many GF options as I am used to having). However, I enjoyed my eggs, sausage, and grits. Their grits are always so good - don’t miss them.
