This place was amazing. Even during a busy brunch Sunday, our server and the manager got the importance of cross contamination and made me a safe customize breakfast. There is so special menu, but everyone got it and helped me eat well. We will definitely go back.
Food was very good but the server was difficult. I told him I have Celiac's and was curious what on the menu was gluten free. He then proceeds to tell me "It's self explanatory" and walks away. Now, I was there on Sunday during brunch so it was a busy time. But the menu does not have GF items marked so how was it suppose to be self explanatory? Once he came back, I asked if there was GF bread for the sandwiches and he said no. I read that they did carry at least that so that was disappointing. I just ordered a salad and it was good! But the service was frustrating.
Had a lovely experience here. Though no items are indicated as gluten free on the menu, they have several items available. I sent a request form to the Chef (from the ida claire website) asking which dishes were gluten free and got a very quick and comprehensive response from Chef Amanda. She listed some items that are naturally gluten free as well as some assurances regarding possible contamination. "We do have naturally gluten free items including but not limited to our roasted chicken, shrimp and grits, smoked pork chop, blackened Icelandic sea trout, grilled branzini, and a gluten free bun option for our sandwiches and biscuits. Our sweet potato chips that we make in house are fried in fresh clean soybean oil every morning, so they are 100% gluten free. The only items I do not feel comfortable preparing for anyone who is gluten intolerant would be our fried items, because after our chips are prepared in the early morning and when we open for service, our fried items do get cross contaminated with whole wheat flours. That being said, all fried items can be prepared grilled or pan seared." I would highly recommend visiting Ida Claire.
