DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES!!!!! WORST restaurant ive ever been to in regards to allergies (although no one else were really crazy about their meals). We called ahead and they said they would"accommodate any allergy"...boy was that a lie. I asked to talk to the chef and the waitress said no. I asked again and told her i was allergic to gluten and dairy and she said no again and said that maybe it would be possible in the middle of the day when no one was there, but it was spring break, which coincidentally it was not busy and it was 1:45. She told me i could have one item on the whole menu: rice noodles with spaghetti sauce. I also have an intolerance to tomatoes and told her that and asked if the kitchen could just take some rice noodles and mix it with olive oil and garlic and she rudely told me no and belittled me by inferring i was weird and difficult bc of my allergies. I would have walked out in the beginning, except i was at my mother-in-laws birthday celebration. If they would have just told us over the phone that they were awful with allergies, we could have gone to a number of other good restaurants in the area. I have never been treated so awful and felt so odd and awful for.having food allergies. This restaurant should be ashamed of itself
So I have been here a couple times. The menu has items listed as GF. I told the waiter we had tonight that I needed GF because I have celiac and I asked for the loaded potato soup which was mark GF. My husband asked if he could make sure the staff knew and he basically brushed it off and said they do not do anything differently in the kitchen. Not impressed at all. It depends on the person waiting on you if they are knowledgeable.
Best Gluten Free Dinner Ever! & They had 4(!) other entree options. I loved this as I didn't have to ask multiple questions about accommodations on the rest of the menu, which just gets so tiring. They all sounded so good it was difficult to decide which one. I chose the Walleye. I can't remember the exact description. Something like Walleye encrusted with potato, on top of garlic mashed potatoes covered in some sort of creamy corn bacon deliciousness with a vegetable medley made in heaven. My date had a creamy basil bruschetta chicken pasta dish. He loved it as well. There were GF pasta options for all pasta dishes. We finished by sharing Pop Rock Cheese Cake which I was only going to have a small taste of because I was so full, but almost ate more than my fair share. Generous portions worth every penny and we have left overs of our entrees for breakfast. You'd pay at least twice the price for a similar meal in Chicago. It was a little loud but with food that yummy we hardly noticed. It was a great date night. Thank you so much!
I can't understand the good reviews. There's only 4 GF options and they don't even sound appetizing. Pork belly rubbed in coffee with carmel machiatto sauce or fish with marmalade on top? Ew. Whatever I gave it a try. fish skin wad clearly old and rubbery and over cooked. The contents of the dish just reflected such bad prep work. Giant chunks of carrots were raw and crunced but the onions and peppers were total mush. The quino mix was not even warm. Our waitress was rude and had attitude multiple times. The place was LOUD with children under the age of 5 running around everywhere to the point the floor shook. They also played a ton of 70s music here loudly from a radio station and it was obnoxious, especially when the DJ would come one and yell. I mean seriously this place is a waste of space.
They do not have a gluten free menu. They have gluten free options and coming at lunchtime - proved a little more difficult for our waitress to know what was gluten free and what was not, which was disappointing not to mention nerve wracking in the fact that the wait staff in this day n age should be knowledgeable. The food was good but not outstanding. Good reasonable prices.
Had the Big Kid Mac & Cheese. It was excellent. The staff was very attentive to my needs. They have several gluten free options. Any pasta can be gluten free (rice pasta). The is several items on the menu that can be made gluten free just ask.
we are mostly gluten intolerant so cross contamination risks are minimal. we are dairy free however. I loved the raw mandarin cheesecake dessert. For entree we ordered rice pasta with broccoli and chicken sautéed in butter (butter doesn't bother me for some reason). Delicious. I couldn't help noticing the clientele appeared to be all people who take care of themselve...healthy looking. Says a lot about their menu and goal. Curry ravioli was available as well gf!:
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!! We have other food allergies besides gluten and the staff was excellent about them all!!! Many options and for the first time my little kids got to eat butter noodles at a restaurant! So good and the food presentation was top notch for a reasonable price! The owners are the chefs and take pride in their food and the service was excellent! I am for sure coming back!
