    Was planning on visiting on our way back to Chicago. Voicemail says reopening mid July, it's mid August. Google says permanently closed.

    Anything on the menu can be gluten free, except the baguette! Everything is so flavorful. High quality food, very attentive service. Wait staff will let kitchen know about cross contamination sensitivity. I ate here without worry and without pain! This will be a regular dining out spot for me from now on.

    Great selection and staff knew what to do for gluten free. Small issue when they put some bread with the buttered noodles but we asked first so problem averted. Almost everything can be gluten free. Ate some awesome cheese curds. Good food all around. 3/17/18 went back a year later and even better than the first time.

    we have a 2.5 year old with celiacs. we haven't been able to eat out anywhere. we ended up at jacs...it was amazing. a little pricey, but since we don't go out often, it was worth it. our entire meal was gluten free and tasty. burger was delicious. we will go back. our kid did not get sick at all and had a great time. they knew what they were talking about when it came to gluten free and celiacs. we didn't have to explain anything.

    My daughter has Celiac. Our server was named Stewart, he was great and very reassuring that we wouldn’t get glutened, we didn’t! They have separate fryers for GF! Best food I’ve had since going GF!

    Jac’s is seriously one of the best gluten free restaurants!! The entire menu is gluten free, including cheese curds fried in a separate fryer to ensure it’s free of cross-contamination. The appetizer I thought was pure heaven. But wait, it got even better - goat cheese stuffed hamburger with French fries. Jac’s is seriously heaven on a plate. Highly recommend for anyone with Celiac Disease traveling to Madison, WI.

    Like the other voters say, I agree that it's very Celiac friendly. A quaint environment with a bold but cozy menu, friendly waitstaff & a kids menu, Jac's allowed me to eat cheese curds gor the 1st time in 5 years - without getting glutened! Not a Madison local, I'd like to return next time I'm in town.

    Wonderful place. Came highly recommended by the bartender at Alt Gluten Free Brewery in Madison. The only thing I have to say is Gluten Free Cheese Curds. OMG I wish I lived closer. They have a dedicated fryer and their food is really good. They have Gluten Free Beers and lots of options on the menu. No separate menu, but so much of their menu can be made GF, it was a great find.

    I love Jacs! Almost everything is either gluten free (even the curds!), or can be ordered gluten free. I hadn't had a decent bowl of clam chowder sincere I was diagnosed with celiac until I came here. I also appreciate how knowledge and respectful they are of their gluten free guests. I'm extremely sensitive to gluten, and this is one of the few restaurants I've never gotten sick from. The frites are delicious, and they do an amazing weekend brunch.

    Excellent! GF buns, dedicated frier, delish sandwiches and salad. I had the lunch special Cuban sandwich on GF bun with fries. My husband and friends who are not GF thought this place was awesome. The waitress said everything on the menu is gluten free, just need to let then know you want GF bun. Very good service

    Our son has celiac. This place is the best! The host and server were very informative about their process to avoid cross contamination. The manager went out of his way to come to our table to reassure us and talk us through the process as well. They have gluten free beer, fries, cheese curds and many other items. They have a dedicated gluten free fryer. Our server opened a new ketchup bottle so there would be no cross contamination. I felt so reassured and comfortable there. They are informed about celiac and take it very seriously. I would go back there for sure!

    What a gem, loved this place! It's a cute bar/diner with awesome food, outstanding service and no after effects ( and I'm a celiac).We had the bacon wrapped dates to start with, then I had the GF roasted turkey sandwich with a side of super crispy frites. it was delicious. My husband had calm chowder (lots of clans) with a fish sandwich(he liked his meal alot). We even had gf desserts, 1 creme brule, and 1 flourless chocolate cake. We can't wait to go back! Thanks Jacs for a wonderful experience.
