**Do NOT eat here!** IT IS NOT SAFE!!! It is the same corporate owners. New management took this place down the drain. The previous management understood celiac disease & trained the kitchen staff. You know things are going downhill when the staff quits in large numbers. We went in staff members told me not to order any food. “Nothing is safe for you anymore.” We had a few drinks found out where the staff was moving to & now go there instead. It was such a great place that knew how to make items GF. It’s still busy, but it's near Woodfield Mall & tons of hotels, so don't let the crowds fool you.

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.

They did not have a GF menu. They sometimes have gf options available ; buns and flatbread. But they were out of all of it when there. I was suppose to trust my teenage server what was gluten free or not. I’m not going back!!

Disappointed. This location did not have the Gluten Free Flat Bread; waitress said it had been a couple months since they had it. I also have issues with vegetable washes and their salad greens are all prewashed, so that was out. Waitress was nice and helpful, but little to eat for me. Ended up with a Bison Burger, with cheese, skipped the GF Bun and toppings. If you want a burger, salad, or a lettuce wrapped sandwich, you will be ok. Sides are a challenge. Waitress was helpful in identifying what was safe to eat.

I had a sandwich with a gluten-free bun (it’s not in the menu but the waiter immediately knew that they have one) and a soup that had no gluten. The overall experience was really good and I had no problems afterward.

Ate here last night and had no after effects. Server was very helpful. I had the Salmon and even though it is naturally gf she had it marked gf so they would know to clean the grill before making it for me. Rice pilaf and asparagus were my sides. No dedicated fryer but many other options can be made gf. They do have gf buns too. Did not flag as gf but it came out separately and the server said that it was the gf salmon before handing to me.

I ordered off the GF menu. I ordered the Bleu Peppercorn Burger, with a side of rice, and drank it down with a Flying Monkey. Then I got so sick I vomited it all up. Not sure what happened, but of course I’ll never eat here again.
