The gf menu is very limited. Example: Even the guacamole has gluten in it (they checked). I'm only giving them 2 stars because the food wasn't great (Red Robin is better) and the service was crappy (got all 3 of our orders wrong), plus they charged us double for an entree we only ordered 1 of.

Nice options on their menu for GF. Dedicated fryer! Both my daughter and I have Celiac and the server and manager made us feel very safe.

A friend recommend checking out Islands after she ate successfully off the gluten free menu. We have been multiple times now and my very sensitive Celiac daughter has eaten there without getting sick. They have a dedicated fryer for fries and a nice selection of items on their gluten free menu.

I love this place! As soon as I asked for a gluten free menu, the staff reassured me that they made everything separate from items with gluten. I got tacos, cheesy fries and a sundae, no issues at all! GF menu isn’t huge but does have nice options and dessert. Would definitely come back again!

The staff was very knowledgeable about GF and cross contamination. The server wore gloves for my meal and made a point of not touching my plate with the same hand as my husband. The hamburger bun was one of the best I’ve had - it was moist and didn’t crumble apart

We eat here often. I typically order a burger on a gluten free bun with no issues. They also offer gluten free french fries.
