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.

They have a separate gluten free menu (not on their website) but have noted that items are fried in a common fryer.

I ordered the Mediterranean Chicken prepared gluten free that came with asparagus and rice pilaf. The chef did come out later and let me know that rice pilaf is not actually gluten free because it has orzo pasta in it and he suggested subbing in mashed potatoes that they prepare from scratch.

The options are limited when you eliminate foods from a fryer and sides like the rice, but there are several options. I asked questions and felt safe with what was served to me. I did not get sick.

Waitress was really knowledgeable about GF options. I had the GF flatbread. It was really tough, but good none the less. Did not get sick from them!

I was advised not to eat here by staff. It was a very nice server. She emphasized that they are only gluten sensitive. She said if I had an allergy or celiac disease she would not recommend eating there. They do not have a separate prep area. All items are cooked in the same cook too (including buns) and the fryer is for everything. It is especially bad when they are prepping buffets food. I see some positive reviews so maybe it isn’t as bad as she said. However, I am highly sensitive and did not want to ruin my next few days in town.

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.
