    Great if you're just intolerant. Everything is on the same cook top and in the same fryer.

    Nothing is actually GF. All we could get was bacon and a fruit cup.

    DO NOT EAT THE DONUT HOLES IF YOU HAVE CELIAC DISEASE! When I found out I had Celiac Disease, I was so upset that I could no longer eat donuts. I grew up having donuts during the summer on the weekends and I've always just loved eating them. I was so excited to try this place out -- especially since they have gluten free donut holes! I ordered four gluten free donut holes and told the server I had Celiac Disease. She told me I'd be fine and that the donuts were really good. A different server delivered my donuts (with a "Jelly's" flag sticking out of one of the pastries), as well as my sister's regular donuts (sans flag). He said my donuts were gluten free, though they looked exactly the same. The GF donuts and regular donuts were all the same size and color, but the inside texture appeared to be different (or appeared more gluten free). I've never been so sick in my entire life. I had to spend the weekend recovering from getting sick, and I called the restaurant today to figure out why I had been so sick. Sure enough, the manager explained that the restaurant uses the same fryer for their gluten free donuts as the regular donuts. She said they never recommend them to Celiac, or even gluten intolerant folks, but rather, people who eat gluten free by choice. She offered me a free meal at the restaurant, and ensured me that the cooks took more precaution with Celiac-friendly foods in the restaurant. She also told me she would explain to her staff about the donut holes not being safe for Celiacs. At this time, I don't feel safe eating here, but I do have several friends who are gluten intolerant that have been fine. However, I definitely recommend staying away from the donuts!

    Great food but indeed cross contamination can happen here.

    Would highly recommend to any GF diner! My new favorite spot!! Having gluten free donut bites was literally the most exciting thing that has happened in my diet in YEARS! And beyond that, they have many gf substitutions and options on the menu, ALL of the food is spectacular and he service is wonderful and warm to boot!

    I told my waiter that I have a milk allergy and asked for no cheese ... And cheese came on my meal. The wait was horrendous and the staff was unaccommodating to a handicap guest I attended the restaurant with. My friend received attitude from two staff members about her wheelchair being in the way (where they stationed us) and rudely asked her to scoot in further (in a low traffic area in the restaurant) several times and it was impossible for her to do so. Awful, terrible situation all around.
