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.
Call ahead to find out the days and times of the fried chicken specials!
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.
Adding a typical “this place is amazing” review because IT IS AMAZING. It was so great to actually be able to sit down and have pub food and beer that also just so happened to all be delicious. I dragged my non-GF family and they all enjoyed it!
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 love this place! It even says “no gluten allowed” on the door! The food is delicious and there are always new, fun, options. Plus- you can try all the beers! It’s wonderful to have places where you don’t even have to explain your allergy.
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!
Excellent experience! Peter our waiter was outstanding, the prices were very reasonable and the food was what every gluten free foodie craves for! beautifully crafted beer and ciders!! Sit out on the sidewalk patio and enjoyed eating gourmet food in the warm breeze enjoying the scenery.
I have Celiacs and 5 major food allergies that force me to follow a strict Paleo diet. I was able to eat a delicious dinner here with my family without having a reaction. I highly recommend this place for those that have to eat gf and/or have food allergies.
Delicious grass fed burger with pickled red onions and greens (sans tomato marmelade and b&b pickles). I am not a fan of grainy or spicy mustard usually so I asked for the homemade beer mustard on the side; I tried it and it was really good! There was something salty on the burger or the bun that gave me a few bites of "whoa thats salty". But otherwise it was awesome! I had a sampler of four beers. And I liked them all. Tasty like regular (glutenous) beers. Which I cannot drink anymore since going gf. The huckleberry rhubarb cobbler was divine! I have hashimotos and so eat 75% paleo and indulge in the occasional homemade gluten free baked good because I'm picky about the flavor of the gf breads. Coming from an out of state town where there are very few gf restaurants or paleo friendly places, this was a real treat!
So nice to be in a place where I had no fear about the food or drinks! Unfortunately the food was so salty it was almost inedible. We had ordered a pickle plate (which we expected to be that salty), the mussels (which are usually salty also) but the house salad looked like a handful of salt had been added to it and was almost inedible because of it, which was a shame because it was a plate of beautiful, fresh greens. The main courses- the chicken and dumpling soup and the tacos were delicious though. I wanted to completely love it, but couldn’t because of the salt.
