Staff was great and meal came out with “allergen” marker on it. Had hot roast beef with cheese on GF bun and a side salad. Lots of choices on menu.

"gluten friendly" menu states on the menu that it does not guarantee that items are gluten free. That being said, I did not get sick and the meal was delicious.

Expensive, crowded and serving sizes are small. That said, the food was decent and no one got sick from cross contamination.

I gotta say I’m a little disappointed in this place. It recently opened up where I live. I went there with my family and sad to see there was hardly anything I could eat. There is no gf menu - the waitress said that they are “gluten friendly” but that there is cross contamination in the kitchen and everything is fried in the same fryer including the tortilla chips. There are no appetizers that are gluten free. There are 3 salads that are gluten free and they do offer gluten free buns so a hamburger is an option but they come with French fries that are cross contaminated. Your other options for sides are steamed vegetables or a side salad but some of the dressings have beer in them. There is a steak that might be GF but it comes with sweet potato fries which are cross contaminated. I ordered a sandwich with a GF bun and substituted a side salad for the French fries. When my meal was brought out, there were croutons on the salad which I asked them to replace with a new salad. I also found remnants of French fries stuck to the bottom of my sandwich, which made me think they originally put French fries on my plate, then realized I didn’t want them and just picked them off of the plate. The rest of my family did enjoy this place but I definitely would not recommend it to anyone that is GF.

I must say I am extremely disappointed with Iron Hill. I am a long time patron of Iron Hill. Great food, very knowledgeable about gluten free and cross contamination. But I ordered from there last week and it was a total rip off. They got rid of the gluten free menu because of covid and the need to downsize, but they were still willing to accommodate our orders of gf burgers with gf buns. It wasn't until we looked at the bill and spoke with the manager that we realized that we were upcharged for the gf substitutions more than normal. We couldn't have the fries so they charged an extra $3 for the small side salad that comes with the burger. Eating gluten free for me is not a choice, it's a necessity and I feel taken advantage of when restaurants try to charge a ridiculous amount of money for these easy and cheap substitutions. Let's just say they have lost my business, which is a real shame.

They used to have a gluten free menu but they got rid of it and there is nothing marked on the regular menu. The server was not very helpful either. Disappointing for sure.

Went to eat and from the time I called to reserve a table until finish, EVERY person I talked to was immediately and completely knowledgeable about gluten allergies and sensitivities. I was so impressed with their knowledge. They didn’t even need to go ask someone, they all just knew. The one guy even took their menu and had the chef himself highlight all the safe items and cross out which I couldn’t have. If I had extra questions though, the waiter knew automatically. I felt very safe eating there. No reactions so far. Food was really good as well. They do not have a dedicated fryer so the options aren’t plentiful for those with very sensitive celiac.
