    I ordered gluten free salad with grilled shrimp and informed the server I was Celiac. I asked for the shrimp to be grilled on foil or pan seared. When my salad arrived with grill marks on the shrimp I asked if this was the Sam grill that is currently covered in bread to make toast. I was informed that it was but that the "chef," says the high heat "kills" the gluten. So I asked if I was to tell the chef that I was allergic to shrimp would he say it is ok because the high heat kills the shrimp "allergen?" Needless to say, such a gross misunderstanding of basis of food allergens and food safety necessitated that I go somewhere else. l reported them to the health department.

    We had dinner at the Glacier Brew House and are pleased that the restaurant is even better than it was in past years. This is a good restaurant for experiencing fine dining as well as casual dining, as the menu contains a lot of great options. The gluten-free selections have increased and are clearly labeled on the menu (NOT a separate menu) but be sure to ask the server how they modify the dish to make it gluten-free, as sometimes the chef has to leave out ingredients listed on the menu. The server seemed to have a good understanding of GF protocols in the kitchen. Service has been consistently good over the past few years, and this particular visit was for a large group of 12 people. Everyone was very satisfied with what they ordered, and everyone got their food at the same time. This is a very popular restaurant, so be sure to go on line for reservations, particularly on weekends. They are trying very hard to accommodate Celiac and allergies. There is not a cider on tap, but several canned/bottled to pick from. Good wine selection.

    The waitstaff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I had the seafood Alfredo which I know was gf by the texture of the noodles. 5 gf beer/ciders on hand plus vodkas. My stomach was upset within an hour. Normally it's about 5 hours so I'm not sure. I will eat here again to try it out.

    Glacier Brewhouse has an extensive gluten-free menu that includes gluten-free beer, fish, and dessert (flourless cake). The staff is knowledgable about the gluten-free options. As a Celiac, I did not run into any cross-contamination issues or get sick afterwards. The staff is very helpful and the food is great!

    This place is not Gluten Free. There is cross contamination and their menu is simply a list of items they've pulled from their menu that doesn't have gluten. They do not offer any alternatives such as bread.

    They have a modified menu and the waitress was very familiar with the menu and helpful but they recommended switching from pita bread to tortilla chips on one menu item but the tortilla chips are fried in a shared fryer. So be careful before making a selection. The fish and steak are excellent but cross-contamination is an issue with other menu items.
