    I have celiac and am pretty sensitive to cross contamination. Our server was very knowledgeable and happy to help me select a safe gf meal. They have a dedicated fryer so it was a treat to have French fries. They also have gf buns. I waited to post this review until one day after dining there so I’m sure that I didn’t develop symptoms after the fact.

    The wait staff are the most amazing people. They are all very knowledgeable about what is and what isn't gluten free on their menu. They are always willing to answer any questions and provide feedback and advice on what is safe.

    Server was very nice but wasn't sure what I could safely have. Manager had no idea. She stood at the table for several minutes only saying "she was thinking". I didn't eat.

    location at Foxwoods was great, I'm gluten intolerant and our waitress Cieanna was celiac. I was able to have a burger on a GF bun and French fries along with all the salad dressings and sauces.

    Our server did not really understand my questions about being gluten free. She went back to kitchen, returned and said they could do a burger with no bun, but seemed unsure. We decided to not risk it- they gave us our drinks for free which was nice. My rating is just based on this single experience.

    Chef will accommodate to maintain gluten free meals, just speak to your server. Hostess was sweet enough to ask the chef before we even sat down. Staff is knowledgable and repeatedly said what was gluten free and that it was gluten free when it was brought to the table which made me feel safe with all their group communication! Had a cheeseburger with lettuce for a bun, fries on the side. Fries are in a fry only fryaltor. Yum! :)

    I had several meals here in my trip. Probably not the most authentic German food but they get the GF thing here and the kids loved it. Great GF beer also and no issues with cross contamination.

    Good gf menu and seperate fryer for fries. They have fries specials (eg parmezan, chili or garlic fires), also gf. Very nice! Had the pulled pork on a gf bun, both pretty dry. Therefore only 4*. No reactions.

    Chicken sandwich on gluten free bun was excellent but fries needed seasoning. Gluten free doesn’t mean it has to be bland.

    This was one of my best gluten free dining experiences in the last 5 years! The waitress let me know that the gluten free menu is for gluten sensitivities and told me what my options are for being celiac. So there aren’t a ton of celiac options but the burger I had was yummy! And the fries are from a dedicated fryer which is always a luxury!

    They have a gluten free menu that shows a bunch of deep fried options from wings, French fries, etc... when questioned about if they have a separate fryer for those items the waiter asked the cook about it. the cooks response was "we use the same fryer, the hear cooks it out." Will not go back there again.

    Ate here three times and did not get sick. I get sick if I get even a little cross contamination. I had no problem here. They have a gluten free fryer for the fries which were great. Great burgers with a good gluten free bun. Servers were really knowledgeable and helpful with gluten free. Server said they have a separate gluten free prep area and color coded cutting boards for gluten free prep. They even had a delicious gluten free brownie sundae for dessert. I highly recommend this place.

    I have generally felt that Hard Rock does a great job keeping me safe. This Hard Rock made me nervous. The waitress was a great help but pointed out that a lot of the items on the GF menu are not free of cross contamination. They did not have a dedicated fryer. She also tried to tell me one of the steaks was not GF. Make sure you ask a lot of questions.

    The staff was very knowledgeable. We eat at Hard Rock Cafes in different cities. They seem to be good regarding gluten free at the locations we have tried, and this was no exception. They have a dedicated fryer and a separate gluten free menu. We had nachos, milkshakes and fries. You can get burgers, sandwiches, salads, appetizers, etc. (a good selection of things, actually!)

    Waitress screwed up with our night. She brought the gf burger with a side salad with f* croutons! We asked 5 times if that was gluten free and she confidently confirmed. My wife ate one when the other server came and said it had gluten. She still insisted it didn't. Then the manager apologized and did not charge us and offered assistance. Be careful there, ask the manager to watch your food. Servers do not know what is gluten. Training needed.

    We had a delicious dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe in Pigeon Forge last night. We have multiple food allergies in our family, including gluten, dairy, eggs and tree nuts. My daughter has Celiac Disease and is extremely sensitive. She cannot eat gluten or tree nuts and had their honey mustard chicken sandwich on a gf bun. My son is only gf and had a cheeseburger on a gf bun. I had their pulled pork , but no bun due to multiple food allergies (gluten, dairy and eggs), with their Carolina bbq sauce. It was delicious! Our server was very attentive and advised against the fries as she could not guarantee the fryer was safe...she said sometimes it is shared. We had the steamed broccoli instead. Our server told us they have protocols set up in the back to reduce cross contamination risk. My kids and husband shared the HUGE gf chocolate brownie sundae for dessert. We ordered it without nuts due to the nut allergy. They thoroughly enjoyed the sundae, which easily can feed 3 people. We were very happy with the food and service and no one was sick last night.

    They were knowledgeable! The fries are gluten free and their gf buns are soft and less dry than other places. My waitress was more than happy to help and even got ready to answer any and all questions I could have had. The gf menu is online but they will help you find out of other items can be made gf!
