Fantastic service and food options. Willing to make anything gluten free, answered questions and was willing to ask. For breakfast it is UNBEATABLE. Gluten free rum charts French toast, breakfast burgers ok gluten free buns. Awesome. My wife is celiac and has eaten here three separate times with no issues, and we are SUPER strict. She is very sensitive and we don’t eat out much. This place is amazing.

Gluten free under and bread. Knowledgeable staff. Great food. Nice interior. Gluten free beer from a dedicated gluten free brewery. I almost cried!

The staff wasn’t very knowledgeable on Gluten Free food. When I looked on their website they said that they had a dedicated frier for gluten free fries. When we went there they told us they didn’t have the frier and the only side I could get was fruit

Son and husband said the gluten free buns were excellent. They were light and airy compared to others. Waitress was helpful in stating the fryer for handcut fries is a dedicated fryer, but couldn't guarantee no cross contamination. Lots of gluten free options. would recommend.

There are gluten free things on the menu but be careful! One option listed as gluten free was made with beer! When I questioned the waitress she had to go back and ask the chef. Apparently there was a mistake on the menu and the item wasn't gluten free. Waitress wasn't very knowledgeable about other things that may or may not be gluten free. Other Postings said their gluten free bread was amazing. No bread was available when we were there. I had a salad with a chicken breast. It was "sub par". Two stars for effort on trying to have gluten free options, but they're not quite there as far as educating the staff, taking precautions, etc.

Friendly staff and absolutely delicious food. Probably the best gluten free bread I've had in a restaurant in Minnesota. If you're in Ely, it's definitely worth a stop.
