We had an INCREDIBLE experience. I recommend going earlier in the dinner seating so it is not as busy. The food was constantly flowing and we got great support around GF options. Almost everything was gluten free except for the chicken wings and bread on the salad bar. The cheese bread served to the table is gluten free and truly amazing. Highly recommend. We felt very safe.

Not only was the food excellent, but they were very aware of celiac and did a great job. By the way first restaurant we have ever been that the bread on the table was already GF.

Mostly everything is gluten free minus some of the side dishes at the salad bar. Live the cheesy rolls, fried polenta, and carmalized bananas along with the meats! Very yummy and I didn't get sick at all! Double score!

Ate here, food was meh aside from the meat. Sides came out cold and were nothing to write home about. That aside, I didn't get sick. but the waiter far from instilled confidence in me on what I could eat. I wouldn't go back honestly.

So delicious. Everything on the bar is gluten free except bread. They had candied bacon, olives, cheese, tomatoes, salad, grilled veggies, etc. They brought to the table fried bananas, fried polenta, mashed potatoes, and the BEST EVER gf rolls. They said the chicken drumsticks were marinated in beer and they were touching the sausage so those were not safe. But the bacon-wrapped chicken and filet mignon were amazing.

Best ever tasting gf rolls, but something glutened me. The staff said stay away from chicken, sausage and bread at salad bar. I ate only meats, cheese and 1 bite of the gf roll. I suspect a spice rub had wheat. I was very clear expressing my needs, but was Still cross contaminated somehow... Too bad

Almost everything is gluten free, including the bread at every table!! Our server was VERY knowledgeable about cross contamination and said I would be safe eating off the Buffett (I chose not to), but to avoid the hummus, chicken and bread. I tested the bread at the table with my Nima, tested GF. I’m VERY sensitive and did not get sick.

Be sure to ask for their allergen list print out. Very easy to read and includes everything available from the meats to the market bar. Don't be worried about the table bread, cheese bread is made with tapioca starch. The meats are brought out seperately so cross contamination (from chicken dishes) was not a worry. Even GF dessert available!
