I have been to Hopmonk many times, and have always enjoyed the experience. One person in our group yesterday has celiac disease. The entire staff was knowledgeable and accommodating of her needs. Our meals were ready to come out when someone in the kitchen realized her food may have been cross contaminated (the kiss of death for someone with celiac). They came out and apologized profusely, and remade ALL of our meals so that the other food wouldn't sit for too long. I was absolutely stunned and so incredibly appreciative of the awareness and attentiveness. I will forever be a fan! Oh, and the food is always SO yummy! Thank you Hopmonk!
Hopmonk is definitely not gluten free friendly. They have very little to offer and the staff isn’t very knowledgeable. They told me that one of their plates was gluten free when in fact it had a sauce that had wheat in it.
No option for sandwiches to be gluten free other than no bun. Salads really only option posted as gluten free. Loud, inside and more sports bar than restaurant. They do have ciders to drink and a few options in the menu that are naturally gluten free.
This place is hit-and-miss for safety. Glad they added GF notations to menu, but the staff still doesn't seem well-educated about safe practices. The food is great, though, so I go when I can stand the thought of having to over-explain everything, and never when it's busy. Always a good spot for drinks and atmosphere, though.
Not too many GF items available, but I tried the kale salad and the beet salad and both were great. Ordered a burger, no bun, for my daughter and it was tiny and looked like a hockey puck (all black and charred) - so I would stick to the salads or other GF items next time.
