Waitress was very helpful in telling me what ordering the gluten free options would be like. I got fajitas with no tortilla was like a rice bowl and very good. Waitress doubled checked my order. Asked chef great experience

The spinach artichoke dip with tortilla chips was amazing !!! The fajitas bowl ( no tortilla) was good. Waitress was very clear about what it would be.

Nice establishment. Friendly. And my husband loved his gluten filled options. lol.

We were traveling through this area and it was recommended by the person we were visiting, so we stopped. I was a little hesitant because of their gluten "sensitive" menu. They do not have a dedicated fryer, so the wings and fries are not Celiac safe. I ended up ordering the broiled haddock sandwich on a gluten free roll. It was very good! We would go back if we are ever in that area again!

They use the same fryolator and tell you the fries are gluten free which tells me they don't get it. not Celiac friendly in my opinion.

The "gluten sensitive" menu at the Ale House is very honest- they cannot guarantee anything is completely gluten free so basically eat at your own risk. Which I have done with no issues many times! A well seasoned celiac will know to avoid the French fries and dive into their delicious flat iron steak salad, available with fresh veggies and gf dressings. The wait staff has always asked if it is an allergy. However if you are extremely sensitive to gluten cross contamination I might just stick with a hard cider.

I have to disagree with Sally. Yes the Gardner Ale House has a GF menu. However it is full of areas of cross contamination. The GF menu offers french fries (both reg and sweet potato), mashed potatoes as well as rice for sides. After speaking with our waitress, who by the way was great, if the fries are cooked in same oil as everything else. She spoke with the kitchen staff who came back and said "yes fries are cook in same fryer, mashed potatoes have gluten in them. the only thing I can offer that is safe would be steamed broccoli."

The GF menu also shows nacho's and chx wings. I did not ask how these are prepared. I just assume since the fries are cook in same oil as everything else that the chips and wings are too. Along with anything else that is fried.

My opinion on the Gardner Ale House is they do not fully understand Gluten Free, and the cross contamination issues that can make people sick.

This has long been a favorite of ours, with a variety exellent beers and very good food. Since I was only recently diagnosed with celiac disease I was grateful to find that they have put together a gluten-free menu and show awareness of the issues of cross-contamination.
