    Were told they didn't have a GF menu b/c they were switching to new menus. Ordered the Parmesan whitefish without the crust (waitress said it would be pan seared) and was told everything else in the dish was safe. When it came out (after a very long time) the waitress said they made a GF Parmesan cheese crust. Took several bites before she came out and said it was the wrong meal. We were told "it was just a little flour" and "it wasn't intentional" but they did not care at all. Completely careless and unacceptable.

    The steaks, while on the gluten free menu, are not gluten free as they are marinated in whiskey. They brought croutons on the salads then apparently just picked them off. Wife with celiac got sick here after eating. Would not recommend for those with celiacs.

    I had a great experience here! Being celiac I'm always nervous eating out. I let them know I had celiac & they told me they take it very seriously. My family received bread & fried calamari as an appetizer. I think the girl felt bad & she brought me strawberries to eat. Which I thought was very nice! My food was delicious,( had fish tacos) & I had the gf chocolate cake. I'll definitely eat here again!

    I have eaten here twice and had awesome experiences both times! They have a gluten free menu they keep updated and the chef clearly knows how to cook gf properly! The bbq ribs with cornbread (which is made from scratch) is a must!

    I had the mahi mahi tacos. Delicious! The GF chocolate cake was decent but far from the best I've had. Beware of wine prices, however. My glass of pinot noir cost $12.

    Pretty nice GF menu but be aware that fries and house made tortilla chips are in shared oil. Server said they have three fryers so we suggested they dedicate one and she said she would suggest it. They have rice as a side option but it already has blue cheese in it and they cannot make plain. No GF buns. Steak was delicious!

    Just ate here. there is indeed a full GF menu that has more than just meat on it. that said, the steak was quite good! can't vouch for the typical chocolate flourless cake although I doubt it would disappoint.

    The restaurant has a big GF menu. I had the spinach & goat cheese stuffed chicken breasts and it was excellent. My husband had the NY & Lobster and he said it was cooked perfectly. The environment was really cool and the service was great.
