The options are limited. Today I received an order the was in no way gluten free. It’s a good thing I know what their gluten free pasta looks like because I didn’t even attempt to eat it. This place sucks.

Pizza and roasted wings seem to be the safest. Separate trays delivered by manager. Never got sick here. Crappy cider selection for such a large bar. Angry orchard.

We were hesitant to go because there were only 3 reviews (1-5 years ago) and they were very bad- but we went to a different location and it was excellent. I called first and spoke with the manager. He clearly understood Celiac Disease and cross contamination. We went and the staff were very careful, knowledgeable, a manager delivered the food and the quality was excellent!

I ordered takeout from Jake n Joe’s in Braintree for dinner tonight. I confirmed multiple times about my allergy on the phone and explained that cross contamination in the fryer is an issue for a gluten allergy. The person I spoke with told me that a separate fryer would be used and that they accommodate allergies with no problem. I arrived to get my food and when I asked on arrival to confirm that my food was gluten free, I was told “oh there was an issue with cross contamination but here’s your food.” I explained to the manager that I had asked about it at length and that the staff was giving false information on the phone. Of course I didn’t take the food, but no one seemed to understand the problem with using the same fryer. I am just frustrated and annoyed that my dinner plans were ruined. Hoping that sharing my experience will save someone else the trouble - I will never go back there because it was made very clear to me that although they pride themselves on accommodating allergies, it is actually very unsafe to eat there.

Not a huge menu, but it's nice that there's more than just salad. My GF son ordered the GF cheese pizza. The waiter brought the pizza desperately, which was nice. I suspect it was an Udi's crust but it was good. There were also burgers with GF buns as well as chicken wings for an app. My husband and I ordered off the regular menu and we had no issues with cross contamination.

Update. We went again and they’ve changed their menu. There is still a GF pizza crust, and its Cauliflower based. I was skeptical since my son is picky but he ate it and said it was good.

Staff messed up for years with what was safe and what was not. Order only items on the menu, and make sure you know how it is supposed to taste (ordered a pasta dish that was supposed to be garlic based if gluten free and spicy if not, and it was very spicy when I got it. Had to reorder and just hope I didn’t get sick). In general, have enjoyed the meals here and the drinks are good. Just be mindful when placing your order.
