New owners - waitress said they were told to tell anyone who is gluten free “you know what you can order. When I asked about anything I was told it was contaminated - rice, not GF, Veggies, not gf… Manager came out and said “we can do a plain chicken breast, that’s it”

Scratch kitchen & the chef can alter many dishes to make sure they are GF. The current manager’s wife has celiacs & is extremely knowledgeable. The servers are excellent & will ask any questions you wish to the chef. It’s good to be knowledgeable & order it the safest way possible. My favorite dishes that I have NEVER had a cross contamination with are: buffalo shrimp w/o breading, mussels w/o marinara sauce extra garlic, roasted salmon w/ mashed potatoes & asparagus or green beans, impossible burger (sometimes run out of GF buns so I just eat it w/ mashed potatoes, salmon salad, & they’ve started brewing their own hard seltzers—YUM.

I find that it’s a nice variety, but I’m a pescatarian. I can’t recommend brunch, but most celiac patients are taught to avoid buffets.

Great bartenders! It has great vibe & EVERYONE that works their is so sweet. The bar area is like Cheers w/ lots of regulars. They have a 4 seasons room, patio, during COVID they’ve had big tents outside & entertainment on Friday nights in the tent.

Used my Nima sensor to test steak, mashed potatoes and green beans. Steak and mashed potatoes came up GF but not green beans. Must have been seasoning on green beans. This is the type of place i would test every time.

Not celiac friendly. Especially at brunch. Only buffet available before 10. They say the kitchen is not “open” until 11. Yet have folks working in the kitchen and had food made for the buffet. They did have an omelette bar. However, the person cooking the omelettes was using the same utensils for the waffles as the omelettes. When asked to use different utensils they did but was a tad inconvenienced.

Things on the gluten free menu are actually fried in a fryer with breaded items. Thanks to an alert server I was spared from eating Will's Potatoes fried in that fryer which are on the GF menu.

Mediocre burger with a stale, sawdust-dry GF bun. Clueless servers did not understand nor recommend GF beer/cider options. Meh. Totally not worth the trouble.

Not good for Celiacs. After asking them to take extra precautions to make sure my burger was GF. They served me a burger with a bun that just looked way to good to be gluten free. After 10 minutes trying to flag down our waitress she took it back to the kitchen and it was indeed a gluten filled bun. If I didn't catch it I would have been severely glutened. By the time my meal came out gluten free, my husband who insisted on waiting to eat had a cold dinner. They never apologized or offered to take it off the bill. We will not go back.

I ate a plain chicken breast and asparagus and I did not get sick. The food is not that exciting, tho.

No longer offering a GF menu, but thought the salmon with asparagus and rice would be safe. Even added a note that if the rice is not GF to switch it out with mashed potatoes. Got the order home to find orzo in the rice. Either they didn't read the note or the staff aren't trained to know that orzo is pasta. Either way, we won't return anytime soon.

They don't have a kids GF menu -- the food is absolutely delicious though. The nacho plate definitely gives leftovers for the kid. Next time we will just share it. They are very accommodating for GF things
