Staff was very knowledgeable about celiac and cross contamination and I felt very safe eating here! I enjoyed a great burger and fries and was even provided with a gluten free bun while the rest of our table had their bread!
Excellent meal. 80% of the menu is or can be made gluten free. Dedicated fryer and the chef delivers your meal directly to you. All food tested safe on my Nima sensor.
Great service! Knowledgeable and friendly staff went out of their way to make our celiac kid comfortable- manager brought our food. Fries cooked separately too! Delicious!
The staff was very knowledgeable and the menu was well labeled. I would definitely recommend it!
All GF items on menu were clearly marked. Good cross contamination protocol. Went here for lunch food was good, wait staff was super attentive and manager brought out our food. A must try !
The food was relatively good and they knew about celiac. The service was slow, but they put GF bread on the table before our meal came and it was delicious. I did not get sick, either.
The food was good, nothing too exciting. The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten free and cross contamination. I liked that the chef brought out the food.
Excellent options, good attention to gluten allergy. Very nice food
Very knowledgeable staff! The Chef personally delivered our food. Great GF burgers and fries. Make sure you ask about their GF Mac and Cheese! Our new favorite spot when we visit Boston.
Great burger and fries (dedicated fryer). They do have a gf df bun. Chef Lylly came out and personally made our food. Highly recommend!
The GF menus were being reprinted, but my server said she would double-check my order with the kitchen and explained that the restaurant had GF bread and a completely separate fryer. My food was hand-delivered by the chef so there were no mix-ups, an extra step I really appreciate. The server even brought me a toasted GF roll when she brought regular bread for my husband. Excellent experience and tasty food—I would definitely eat there again.
Found Joe's American Bar and Grill on "Find Me Gluten Free" but was a little concerned about "no gluten free menu" comments from other posters. Checked the restaurant home page and it specifically mentioned "gluten free" so decided to give it a try. As soon as I told our exceptional waitress - mad that I have forgotten her name - that I couldn't have any gluten; she immediately replaced my menu with a gluten free one! It is very similar to the version online with the main change - Gluten Free Bread. I did notice that The Crispy Calamari was not included and the crispy onion straws were not on "The Cure" but very similar. My meal was very good - even delivered by the chef who described it as "gluten free meal" so I had no concern that there was any food mix up - we all ordered burgers. I couldn't taste the others but they said it was very good. The serving staff were very attentive but did not hover. Over all a great experience and I will go there again.
They are great with cooking gf for people with Celiac or allergies here! I was a bit concerned because we got there late and it was really busy. The chef brought out our food personally and even came out and apologized for the wait when he decided to remake our nachos when he thought they weren't up to his standards. The nachos were fabulous as were the burger and the ribs and we had no reactions.
American Joe's restaurants are hands down one of mg favorite places for GF/dairy-free meals. They offer an extensive GF menu and have local bread (this location only, not dairy-free), Udi's bread products, GF penne and dedicated fryers. The staff and management are extremely knowledgeable about allergies, and I'd recommend this location to anyone in the city!
OMG!! The best gf Mac and Cheese ever!! Staff very helpful and very (!) knowledgeable about gf options (handling of food, etc.). They even brought out bread while we were waiting for our food!! I'd always go back!
Very helpful with explaining what was gluten free
Helpful staff. Even provided gf bread while we waited for our meal.
Meticulous on details even on what could be argued was the busiest day of the year. Everything is from scratch so they even pan seared calamari for us with aeoli for dipping. Gluten free buns before the meal. Designated fryer delivered regular fries and sweet potato fries that were perfect! Two burgers on gluten free buns, one was the the 'cure'- served with ribs and an egg on top, and one classic cheese- perfectly medium rare. My southwest salad was delicious too. Thank you for making our Boston family meal easy and tasty.
Very gluten free friendly!!!
Fabulous gf food! Fantastic service with lots of care for my celiac daughter! Love this place ! Our favorite in Boston ! A++
I've been to several Joe's around Boston and I love them. I'm not celiac just gluten sensitive so I can't speak for those who are super sensitive but I've never had any issues and the food is excellent.
Our server claimed their restaurant was #1 in Allergy-friendly practices in the city. The restaurant itself was CRAZY crowded, but we were assured they're well-versed in GF cooking. Fries are prepped in a dedicated fryer, which was great. I got a rack of ribs and our daughter got chicken/broccoli and penne in a garlic cream sauce. Our meals were excellent. Bread came out ahead of our meal...it was a grill-top toasted hamburger bun, but it was fresh and warm, so no complaints there! To bolster my confidence in the meal being safe, it was a pleasant surprise to have had our meals delivered by the chef personally. Really great experience!!
Staff went out of their way, even with the cook delivering my food, to ensure my food was prepared GF. Dedicated fryer and GF buns. Nothing labeled as such on the menu which seems strange since they are so accommodating. Good burger and fries.
Pasta was so good! The waiter was great! They have a separate place to prep gluten free food and only mangers can bring it out.
Friendly staff. Wonderful deviled eggs with a sweet, crunchy bacon. I'm gluten-free due to severe allergies, the staff was familiar with their menu and the GF options. Even brought us some GF bread and butter. Fries were crispy and made in a dedicated fryer.
Had an awesome lunch with our celiac little one. Dedicated fryer, pasta and the chef even brought out plain ice cream himself for dessert. And they even brought out gf bread.
One of my favorite go-tos! They have great selections and I haven't met a staff member that didn't take care of my needs to a T. Great nachos, salads and they have a dedicated fryer! Hello sweet potato fries!
I came here with my family (party of 11) for my college graduation dinner. Even with a large group, our waiter was calm and collected while accommodating my GF diet and honey allergy. He brought out separate chips and guac for my starter. He checked and told me that the GF rolls had honey in them (nice catch!) but I opted for a burger and fries anyway, despite having many other options. The sweet potato fries were delicious! GF dessert options were limited, but I did enjoy their ice cream, and I felt OK afterwards!
So good! Brought GF bread to table; was able to make their Mac 'n cheese GF :)
I would have given this place a 5-star rating and a glowing review, but the last time I went it was clear they were not going to bend over backwards for celiacs. I will say the food is tasty and they are safe, but they no longer have proper dinner rolls (they will bring a toasted hamburger bun) and the gluten free selection dropped quite a bit.
They go out of there way here to make you feel safe and taken care of. Extremely accommodating and one of my favorite places for gf nachos and fries.
Yummy gluten free burgers!!!
By far the best food and best staff, Justin made our experience fantastic . Mac and cheese was phenomenal, selection was outstanding!!
Very good place, manager came and told me that almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free.
The manager Josh is amazing! So helpful and genuinely concerned that your experience is 100% gluten free
Excellent care & customer service with my needs. The sweet potato fries are the best I've ever had. They have a dedicated GF fryer. I also had a great burger with swiss cheese and mushrooms. They offer GF buns as well. They have a manager or chef bring the food out and say that it is GF. Love that confirmation! Highly recommend. Busy location. Plan accordingly.
Waitress was very friendly and knowledgable about celiac disease. We had burgers on GF buns (which were heavenly) and GF sweet potato fries that were better than any I've ever had. Great ambiance and great food. A definite must try...
Great place. Staff was very knowledgeable. We asked the hostess abotu GF options and she confidently told us that although there was not a separate GF menu, about 90% of the choices could be made GF. Our waiter even had celiac so he REALLY understood our needs. They served us warm GF rolls with butter. We ordered GF pasta, GF mac & cheese and a burger with a GF bun (no extra charge!) and fries made in a dedicated fryer. The chef brought out most of the food so it was clear that pay extra attention to GF needs.
Very good gluten free comfort food. We had the Mac n Cheese. It wA delicious and happy to say we didn't get sick.
Staff is always incredibly helpful and cautious. Most of the menu can be made gluten free and they know exactly what isn't safe. A manager always checks in with is and brings us our food. One time, the manager even gave us a package of the gf pasta they use to take home since we loved it so much. This is my go to restaurant in the city.
Our server was very knowledgable and helpful. I'm a silent celiac and felt quite confident here. I had their signature burger on a GF bun. Amazing. Burger,
Very good service. No cross contamination. Had the burger delicious food we will be back
I'm in love with Joes! I enjoyed Gf Mac & Cheese with lobster. OMG! So long since I tasted gf pasta this special and no problems! The manager even made a special visit to our table to assure me of the restaurant's commitment to insure against cross-contamination. Great atmosphere!
Some of the best gf pasta I've ever had!
Really good gf buns. Love sandwiches and that also means all the burgers are safe. Gf French fries are delicious. Also offer gf pasta as well. Would definitely come again.
Had a great meal with no reaction! Gf Mac and cheese was good.
This place was awesome! Not only did they have GF bread brought out to the table before dinner, but they also made the extra (non-requested) step of keeping the queso (NOT GF) on a seperate dish than our salsa, AND frying our tortilla chips in the dedicated fryer so I could have GF chips!! Blown away!! The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten. I had the special, which was a Philly cheesesteak sandwich (GF roll!) and it was amazing! Highly recommended and Celiac friendly.
I was in an urgent celiac situation where I had not eaten breakfast nor packed any food and got stuck in the city unexpectedly. As I was about to miss my 3rd meal I decided to risk trying a new restaurant and got delivery from Joe's. I ordered a salad and a side of veggies to pick something on the super safe side. It was tasty and I'm not sick! Thanks Joe's, you really helped me out.
wait staff very friendly, fairly GF aware. several choices, very reasonable. can modify even appetizers to accommodateGF diets. cool environment as well.
Food was great!! Especially the sweet potato fries. I also am Df and the waitress brought out the gluten free label for me to read!!

**This location is permanently closed** Love this Joe's location as well! Like all locations, Joe's offers GF/Dairy-Free bread, and gluten free pasta making almost all menu items interchangeable to gluten free entrees! Manager was extremely nice and waiter was very knowledgable, never a stomach ache after eating at Joe's!
Previously had good experiences with good food. During our last visit, we discovered a regular noodle in Our gluten free pasta dish. The Manager could not explain how it got there but was apologetic. Thankfully my kid noticed it before eating. May not go there again.
I really question where all these good reviews come from. I had the chicken broccoli ziti (GF) and it was horrible. I couldn’t finish it. Furthermore, it was way too expensive for what it was. Bad service, bad environment/decor, overall pretty bad experience. They did have a manager bring out my meal and it was definitely GF, it was just awful. Wouldn’t even recommend for non-GF eaters. There are plenty of other places around to eat that have good GF options I hate salads but I regret not going elsewhere to just have a salad.
Always enjoy our visit here. The GF bun was ok. I really enjoyed the Devilish eggs. Our waitress, Heba, and the rest of the staff were super friendly and helpful. She made sure to ask if I wanted the GF fries instead of the wedges when I ordered the GF option.
Had my birthday dinner there last night after reading the reviews here. I was impressed to see how knowledgeable the staff was. They pretty much can do everything GF. GF buns, GF pasta, dedicated fryer. I had the Filet with sweet potatoe fries and spinach. And they got me the creme brulee as birthday dessert. Everything was delicious, I highly recommend it 😁
American Joe's restaurants are hands down one of mg favorite places for GF/dairy-free meals. They offer an extensive GF menu, Udi's bread products, GF penne and dedicated fryers. The staff and management are extremely knowledgeable about allergies. I've eaten at this location 5+ times without incident. I'd recommend Joe's to anyone visiting Legacy Place next door or traveling by on 95!

I read great reviews about this place, so we decided to try it. I was not disappointed, our server was so knowledgeable and the manager even came over several times to answer all our questions about the menu. They were very careful and the rolls were delicious.
Great! So many gf options. GF buns. Separate fryer for fries. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Weird thing is - no gf menu or even gf notes on menu - BUT they are as GF friendly as any place I have been. Normally no menu - we are out - but comments here on this site convinced me to give it a shot- glad we did!
We ate at Joe's American Bar while in Boston for the marathon weekend. Table staff was very friendly and reviewed the many GF options. The restaurant manager brought my meal to our table indicating that it had been prepared GF. The meal was perfect and very enjoyable.
they were so nice and accommodating! first, they vaguely told me that almost the whole menu could be made gluten free. I asked if that included the fried chicken. I wasn't expecting them to have gluten free flour and sure enough they did not. but the waiter was so nice and willing to ask the kitchen about it to make sure. I went with a Burger with sweet potato fries. yum! the sweet potato fries were amazing! the Burger was very good too and the bun was nice and not crumbly.
I had one rough incident a few years ago where the waitress didn't communicate the allergy to the chef, and served me an appetizer that wasn't gluten free. My entire family ate free that night because of how sick I was going to get from their mistake. I have never had a single problem since then, and it's my go-to restaurant. They ALWAYS send the manager out with my food to confirm that it's gluten free. I'm a big fan of their fish sandwich and their portobello sandwich. They're able to make their fries gluten free, which is always a plus. Highly recommend for a good gluten free restaurant with plenty of options!
Amazing options! Our waiter informed me that 75 % of the menu can be made gluten free. They have a separate fryer and the manager made sure everything was made properly and then hand delivered my plate to me. I don't typically love chain restaurants, but I will definitely be back.
I have never written before but felt this was important because when I emailed the restaurant I got no response. I asked hostess for GF menu and was told there was a separate section in the menu. When I looked though the menu, there was no such section. I asked the waitress and she flipped through the menu, confused, and said there used to be..she then proceeded to tell me about GF bread and pasta and to ask about other items. I ordered the ribs and sweet potato fries after I was assured the sauce was GF and that they use separate oil for allergy requests. The food was good, but was surprised not to be visited by a manager as is typical at most restaurants. Turns out, I had a very definite reaction to the food. I know eating out is at my own risk and I do not hold the restaurant responsible. However, the staff (hosting, server, chef) need to be better educated about this issue. I wrongly assumed they would want to know that this happened. .but again..no response. I will not eat here again.
Manager and server were very knowledgeable and super accommodating for our gluten and dairy free needs. The French dip was very good and a nice change from the burger I usually end up with when I go out because that is the only option. My daughter was thrilled to get gf pasta with marinara. Highly recommend this place.
Although they don't have a gluten-free menu, the staff is very knowledgeable. I told my server that I was gluten-free and he pointed out all of the gluten-free appetizers and entrées right away. They have an amazing chicken broccoli ziti. Awesome place
Despite not having a separate GF menu, they have a large GF selection on adult and kids menus. They are totally accommodation as well....the manager came right over after we let the waiter know our daughter has Celiac and he affirmed their desire to make it a great dining experience for her. She got a separate GF bread basket when ours came, and we had ordered a spinach dip...they brought her a separate basket of GF chips which they explained had just been fried in new clean oil. One of the most Celiac/GF experiences we have had, and the food is fantastic!
This PAINS me to write a bad review- Joes has been my favorite restaurant for years. But as a recently diagnosed celiac, this was my first trip there eating GF. Long post- but hopefully you read it and it will help prevent this happening to you. I asked the hostess for a GF menu, she said they don't have a separate menu but they have GF pasta and bread so pretty much the whole menu can be made GF and that the server could help with more info. So I was pretty excited. Asked the server when he came over and his response (in an annoyed tone) was for me to tell him what I wanted and he would tell me if it was GF. So I asked for the Honey Mustard Chicken Salad (my favorite dish there). He said yes, that can be made GF. Score. I had heard from other reviews here that when you say you need GF, they usually bring out a GF roll with the bread- he did not offer. I chose to ignore it. Food finally comes out-brought out by the chef no less so I felt comfortable that they took the time to take care of my food- but then I noticed he was carrying Everyone at our tables. Then I quickly noticed that my salad which normally comes with pasta, was pasta free. Confused, since he said that salad specifically could be made GF, and the hostess said they had GF pasta. So I asked, and he said no, they only have GF penne, not angel hair.... So, essentially making this salad GF was removing all of the elements from the salad. And my $15 salad was nothing more than a garden salad with grilled chicken. So, fine. Miscommunication. Wait staff should be more clear in my opinion...but wouldn't let that ruin my meal. Continue to eat my salad, get half way thru, and I found a noodle in my salad. A noodle. In my GF salad. I called the manager over- she was very nice and apologetic, asked if I wanted anything else blah blah. Said they usually take allergies very seriously. Not mad at her, she did her job to clean up their mess. I wasn't rude but left very upset. The fact that the waiter then said "sorry things didn't go as planned" to me several times had me steaming. Now looking back I have several issues: 1) how does 1 little noodle get mixed in the salad? Did they add the pasta, realized it shouldn't have it and then took it off, minus one noodle? So my salad was completely exposed? Did the noodle fall in? I don't understand. 2) also realized when taking my order, the waiter offered me grilled or crispy chicken... How were they planning on making crispy GF chicken? 3) because of this wondering if he even put my "allergy" on the ticket or if he just said "no noodles". Clearly this waiter wasn't properly trained... And that's scary. I think they try hard to be gluten and celiac friendly- and hopefully this was a one time instance... But I'm so sad this happened.
