They have closed their kitchen. They only do a reheat pizza from the local gluten free bakery. 😥

I have one of their beers for take out. They have outside seating available that follows the 6 feet distance requirement. I am very curious to try their food options next time.

My sister and I ate here on our sister date around Christmas when I was home for the holiday. So super celiac friendly, right down to the note on the door, asking for non gluten free foods to remain outside the establishment for the safety of their celiac and NCGS patrons. They were out of a few of the things we wanted, but what we ended with was worth it. I had the taster of the dark ale (lightweight here) and absolutely loved it...they have their own GF microbrewery...and I was super excited when I found their beer behind security at the airport on my way home since I hadn't picked any up while there. Worth my time and energy to make a trip back there the next time I'm home in Portland.

It's so nice to go to a dedicated gf place and have options! Anything on the menu is fair game and fabulous, my partner ordered the buttermilk fried chicken bowl and I had the Cubano, both were delicious. Definitely recommend

Beer is excellent. It's a unique recipe and they do smashing good job at a biscuity pale ale and dark ale.

Service is a little strange sometimes. I don't feel like the bartenders like me.

For food, there's a wide basic American menu. I'm not sure why they do things like offer potato chips with your burger and then bring them in a bowl before the meal like an appetizer. No fries? It is dedicated gluten free and I appreciate the NO GLUTEN allowed signs.

Went for dinner with my family, very rude server. Small menu and not a lot of option . We waited for probably 20 minutes before someone came to take our order. Went on a Wednesday at 5:00pm for dinner and most of the things we tried to order they did not have available. Paid $75.00 for food that we did not enjoy. Definently would not come back again

Pros: I didn't get glutened. Cons: I got FOOD POISONING. On vacation. I had been looking forward to our visit for months and was expecting an experience similar to Ghostfish in Seattle (which is 5 stars in every way). Unfortunately, the service and food terrible. No one in there was remotely friendly. I agree with another reviewer that the bartender doesn't know how to pour a stout-like beer. She should watch some Guinness youtube videos. The beer should fill more than 2/3 of the glass, especially when you take more than 5 minutes to pour it. I ate the chile con carne and my husband had a cubano (which is nothing like a real cubano; I'm from Florida and ate the real thing regularly until my celiac dx). I can't recommend highly enough that you avoid this place. Go anywhere else and save yourself the misery of food poisoning.

If you can get the fried chicken, GET IT! I had the fried chicken bowl (only available at lunch) and it was delicious. Too many IPAs for my taste but the food alone is worth it. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable and she has Celiac herself.

No stars because no seats! We were turned away because they were full and I was really dissappointed with the snooty way we were informed that a reservation was needed. Would have been nice to know!

Because this is a dedicated facility, I gave it another star. The food was really weird. We had the shrimp toast which tasted like chicken salad. I felt like I was in the 80’s because all of the mayonnaise and celery. I ordered a BBQ sandwich and it was tender, but not a typical BBQ sandwich. I also ordered a pickle with it and it wasn’t even a pickle. They gave me the grossest pickled vegetables I’ve ever had in my life. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had vinegar vegetables before. I ordered a dark nitro beer which they call a pint, but it was never filled up. Desert Bread pudding was good. In conclusion, it was bad. Normally don’t complain, but we will not be back.

Was only in Portland for a few days but came here twice! Absolutely love the " No gluten allowed" sign on the door - makes me feel just that much safer even though I already know is it a dedicated gf facility. Call ahead to see which days they are serving the fried chicken because it is amazing. This was the first time I had eaten fried chicken since being diagnosed and it tasted so good I almost cried tears of joy. And the warm chocolate chip cookies are incredible, a little pricey but delicious.

Love this place. Best sour dough. Could add more dumplings in the chicken and dumplings but still very delicious. Best fried chicken Sunday deal but the sides that come with it can be odd at times, the chicken and waffle combo I never got to try but I want to. Overall great place

They are a dedicated gluten free kitchen/brewery. I am gluten free and dairy free. The staff immediately knew what substitutes to make on the menu so I could order what I wanted for lunch. They had a porter style beer when I was there, it was great.

Absolutely AMAZING! 100% GF and delicious. Great for traditional pub food (as it’s not vegan like a lot of GF places are). The beer flight is an absolute must so you can try all the fantastic beer. Had the beef burger which was fantastic and served on a gf bun that didn’t fall apart. Great dessert menu as well. Had a delicious rhubarb & huckleberry turnover. Both the food and beer were excellent. A must visit if you’re travelling to Portland. Bought some beer that was 50% off to take home with me 😁😁

I visited Portland on a college trip with my Celiac daughter. Rather than hit a chain restaurant, we decided to try something local. Very glad we did! My daughter is a bit of a picky eater, but she was able to find things she would like on the menu. She ordered the burger, which she said was really good. I had the chili, cornbread and my very first gluten free beer. All were excellent. Restaurant seems to have a really big following and I was excited to see a GF restaurant thriving. At neighboring tables, we saw a few people eating the fried chicken and it looked amazing! They even have a kids menu. Highly recommend this restaurant/brewery!
