Went for a work dinner where they were catering for 70 people. I wasn’t expecting to be able to eat anything. No gluten free menu but some items can be made GF like the burger had a gluten free bun. We didn’t have the usual menu just a set menu as we were a large group and GF was not marked on anything. I asked them for GF options. They asked if I was celiac or just sensitive which for me is usually a good indication they know what they are talking about. They were aware of cross contamination with fries being cooked in the same fryer as gluten containing items and informed me of the ingredients of the components of my meal to check it was ok with me too. The food tasted good!

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.

I went to Granite with family I was visiting in Naperville. After asking the waitress if they had gluten free buns she was very kind and she worked with me to go over which foods were gluten free and which were not. However I got very very very sick after going! It was a cross contamination kind of sick. I would not recommend for anyone with Celiacs disease!!

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.

They attempted, but was a fail twice. No dedicated fryers which doesn't leave a lot of options even for things listed on their GF Menu. Burger with GF bun was okay, but again, they grilled the bun and such on the same surface as non-GF.

I had a reaction both times.

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.
