Regarding GF, this ok but I won’t seek it out again. Burger with gf bun. GF buns are usually better warmed unless they are fresh, this one was slightly warm. Shared fryer, so no fries. Salad option, coleslaw option.

Service and experience. Move on! I should have moved in when we were ignored at the door for 10 minutes. But we went ahead and we’re sat at a table in the upstairs corner. Long long wait for food - 1 hour - and half the order came before the other half. Yet, bacon on my gf burger was cold, had to send it back. Burger was undercooked and cheese not melted. All signs that the gf meal was an after thought. I also bit on something hard in my burger, looked like a small piece of plastic or chip of plate. Gross. My child’s burger, not gf, perfectly done. They gifted us two deserts for the wait. This was among worst dining experiences I have had in awhile anywhere.

Great service! We were with a very large group and two people had gluten allergies. The servers took extra time with us. Due to covid, they are not at full capacity in the kitchen. We could not get french fries or gluten free dessert. The food ordered was very good.

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.
