Review


We were excited to try a cute new location with fresh menu options, but very disappointed when it became impossible to order anything safe for me, despite their GF labeled items. I also cannot have soy and they told me that all their burgers are cooked in soybean oil (I asked if they could use EVOO and they said no). The server came back and also told me that the shrimp app we ordered, indeed had gluten, despite the menu denoting it was GF. We actually ended up leaving and not ordering food bc they told me that my only safe option was a salad without dressing, and frankly that is the only option I can eat at many restaurants, I didn’t drive all the way there to have another boring salad. The server was patient but we were very disappointed. Though I would prefer honesty every time, as I suffer from chronic migraines when I eat food that is even cross contaminated with gluten or soy

No dedicated fryer

The best waitress ever is Jen! She was so sweet and attentive to us. She knew the menu and made suggestions. I had the Brie burger and it was delicious. And cooked to perfection. She made sure we were always good and checked if we needed anything. The fries that came with our meal were amazing. My mojito was so good plus they had watermelon in each ice cube. Such a nice establishment in Ohio City. Plus, an added bonus they have gluten free buns for my husband. 🍰🍧🎂 She made sure to give my daughter a brownie filled with ice cream for her birthday. Thank you! No dedicated fryer for fries but our waitress told us that early on.

Waitress too notch / GF bun available in

Be sure to look at menu online before you go for GF options as menu in house did not showcase GF. The waitress tried to tell me all salads were GF when the ones online were clearly noted which were and which weren’t. I ended up ordering the ABC omelet and the supposed GF house fries I feel may have glutenized me later that day with a rash. They looked like cut up French fries. It was strange. Though the waitress did say they cooked them in a separate fryer. Nice place, nice waitress. Good food choices if your not GF. But just not a lot of options GF unless you want a GF bun for one of their big “heart attack” size burgers. With all the options in Ohio City, this would not be my first choice pick for us GF’ers.

It was ehh. Not many gluten free options without changing the whole dish. Things are mostly gluten “friendly” but not gluten free for celiacs. I ordered the burger au cheval and it was alright, not the best though. Waitress was knowledgeable and very helpful.

Had come here due to good reviews. I had ordered a cider off the drink menu only to be told once it was at the table that it was actually an ale not a cider and that it was mislabeled. The only other cider they carry is not certified gluten free.

Food wise they only have buns, and two other menu options.

Overall not worth it.

Busy for brunch. The menu did not highlight GF options, but my waitress was knowledgeable. I got the abc omelet with truffle potatoes.

Most everything has gf but when I asked they told me no it has breading or its fried. I asked though that since it has gf they can modify it I was told no after they already gave me fries which are unsafe as well.
