    Victor took great care of me and made sure my food was prepared correctly and even gave me suggestions for other restaurants! Highly recommend it!

    Exceptional coleslaw and gluten free bread on the Ruben sandwich. So yummy!

    The server was incredibly knowledgeable and kept my celiac son and myself safe. He even suggested an off menu entree, a fish with an amazing sauce, plus dessert. I'll be back often, since I work nearby.

    My daughter had grilled chicken which she enjoyed. There was a great selection of GF food and our waiter was Gluten aware.

    We are here twice on our trip as it was near our hotel. My son had the cheeseburger and jasmine rice both times. I tried the shrimp salad and scallops. Menu was good - lots of choices.

    I am GF and dairy free ( and T1 diabetic) so it's always harder to find options. I went for Brunch and asked the hostess if they had a GF menu which they did. I had the steak and eggs. I asked if my eggs could be made in olive oil and not butter or pan spray, which they did and unfortunately the GF potato option had dairy in it so I asked if I could substitute maybe a side salad. the waitress said she'll check with the manager. she came back and said normally they don't but the manager said ok. ( hence why the 4 stars and not sure how the kitchen is with cc) and these fried cinnamon dough balls were brought to the table... that was a tad painful as I couldn't have them, my friends were like sorry. I always say it's ok, better I don't eat that fatty food anyways lol keeps my weight off not eating those types things! they do have GF buns for $1 extra if needed. overall they were accommodating and I will go back. not sure if full celiac friendly as I didn't fully inquire about cc and food prep. I didn't get sick and it's the next day as I write this ( I have diseases very similar to celiac)

    I got the Salmon for lunch. It was delicious! The have a very nice selection of lunch items as well as drinks that are GF. They even offer GF buns for the burgers but you have to pay $1 more for that option. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was excellent. Price was reasonable.

    For us this place was super disappointing. While they had a large gluten free menu and the waitress was knowledgeable, the food came out cold and tasted like it had been sitting out for awhile. Gave it two stars only bc they had options otherwise the quality is only one star. Bummer.

    Great gluten free menu. I had the scallops and my wife had the mahi over lobster risotto and both were wonderful. Great atmosphere and service.

    Very nice. Great gluten free menu with lots of options. I had a burger (hard to find GF burgers!). The flourless chocolate cake was a treat!

    Wonderful dinner here, steps from the metro stop, full of fun sports-related atmosphere. Multiple screens showing different sports playing constantly, lots of sports photos, and great classic American fare. I had the steak, which was excellent. But the real star of the meal was the decadent and delicious flourless chocolate cake. What a treat!
