Waiter was not knowledgeable about GF and frankly did not care. Asked if fries were cooked in their own fryer, he sais they were GF and didn’t understand cross-contamination. Had a burger with GF bun which was good. But had to return to fries when another staff confirmed they were not cooked in GF safe fryer.

QR code to GF menu within the main one. Mainly steaks and burgers and chips. No gf dessert apart from ice cream. Server seemed either vague or reassuring: she came back twice to check what I could have.

No gluten-free Menu, but staff was able to tell us what rhey can do gluten-free. Our two girls (both celiac) had dinner and stood healthy. Waiting time was very long and it was very cold in the room. Extreme climatisation is normal in USA. But this restaurant was the world champion in making their guests freeze. We left it as soon as possible. Therefore we didn't really enjoyed the evening.

Brownie sundae seems to have triggered a bad gluten reaction. The timing makes any other culprit highly unlikely. Long night of regret while on vacation. :(

The staff mixed up my order and gave me a regular bun instead of a gluten free one. On top of that, they do not have a separate kitchen and they cross contaminante foods.

I had a honey mustard chicken sandwich on a gf bun. It was very good. Had mashed potatoes on the side because fries were not in a dedicated dryer.

Amazing service and gluten-free options. Spoke with the waitress, chef, and manager and was assured of no cross-contamination and desperate fryers.

They had a 45 minute wait so we sat at the bar. The bartender was informed and helpful. I was in New York for my anniversary so I sent my husband to ask the manger. He thrilled checked with the manager and chef. The gluten Free menu is safe. I had the wings. Excellent! With the golden potatoes.

Woof. Ugh. They tried…

So the nice thing was, they had a GF menu. However, apparently the night was not their night.

The waitress was great. She checked to make sure the fries were in a dedicated fryer (they were, which was awesome). But the food took forever to come because of some kitchen “issues” with folks being out (foreshadowing).

So our food finally came (we weren’t in a rush) and I had the GF chicken sandwich- bun was ok. BUT…. There was also a side of coleslaw - which I had a bite from and should be safe… should be as long as there isn’t A WHOLE BREADED AND DEEP FRIED ONION RING AND ONION RING REMNANTS BURIED INSIDE THE COLESLAW CONTAINER. I wish I was kidding.

I told the waitress, who was great. And we spoke to the manager, who was great and mortified that happened. She comped our entire meal and made a cross contamination report and was going to release her fury onto the kitchen staff to get to the bottom of how that was able to happen.

I got bloated that night but I must have avoided most of the onion ring. Celiacs beware of this spot… check your coleslaw.

One star for the ick. Plus one because the manager was knowledgeable and attentive. I think this was a one off. But buyer beware.

Ever since finding out that I have celiacs, I’ve been so nervous to eat out. The server was so nice about it and it was so amazing to eat a full meal! They also have a specific menu!
