They do advertise a lot of gluten free items. However anything fried is not safe for someone with celiac. They have a shared fryer so no fries, nachos, or chips. Burger was good with a gluten free bun.

Their menu marked things GF that clearly weren’t. I was disappointed that few menu options were truly GF. I didn’t get sick but it’s hard to trust that there wouldn’t be cross-contamination if they don’t take their menu seriously.

The Thai curry was good, not great. Solid option and I didn’t get sick. They have cider and spiked seltzer too. I wish they would get Glutenberg!

We ate here with 4 of us with dietary restrictions- a Vegan, a Celiac, a Dairy Free and a Low FODMAP. Our Server, Tyler was fantastic! We found great options for all. We had Falafel wrap, Corned Beef sandwich, Hamburger and Grilled Chicken Sandwich. All with no problems. Thank you Tyler for being Up for the Challenge! They do use a shared fryer, so no French fries or Sweet Potato Fries.

Not celiac friendly. Hostess gave very vague answers and seemed annoyed by my questions. No dedicated fryer yet there were fried items on their gf menu. I asked about the grilled cheese and it is cooked on the same griddle beside gluten items. Stay away if you are celiac.

I had a great experience here! The special menu was marked if something was gf. The regular menu was not, so I asked about the soup and the server informed me the chili was gf (and its vegetarian and delicious). Our server was super helpful and professional! He asked the chef our he questions. Very fresh and delicious food!

WARNING: This restaurant has a "gluten free menu" but it is far from gluten free. For example, many dishes come with home fries, but they are fried with gluten. Can't trust the food. AVOID!
