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.
Great atmosphere, huge menu, and they seem to be knowledgeable about gluten free diets. BUT, I got so sick from this meal. I had a delicious dinner of chicken and penne pasta and either the sauce or the pasta was not GF. I really feel this must be an exception but don't be afraid to ask several times if its GF!
After years of not having any decent casual ding near my in-laws it was nice to discover this place. The food is quite good, the portions generous, and the prices are reasonable. They are acquainted with GF dining, offering GF pizza, pasta & burger buns along with a number of great entrees. We were there just last night and had a very good half baked chicken with mashed potatoes. I was also able to get a GF bun with my meal for a ¢.75 charge.
Let me start off by saying the food was great! There were many GF options, but I think the staff may need a little more training in what constitutes GF. I ordered a side salad and unfortunately it came with croutons (of course you’re able to “just pick them off”, but it’s definitely not reassuring in what is actually happening in the kitchen!) That being said, it was a great atmosphere and good food, so I’ll give them another try some day!
The baby back ribs were my favorite in Boston before getting diagnosed and I’m so happy that I can still them as they are gluten free. They have a dedicated fryer so you can eat fries and they can bring you a gluten free roll if you ask for one. I’ve been here multiple times and haven’t gotten sick.
I went here for a function and I was blown away. They are super accommodating. We were approached by a waiter who showed us our Gf/dairy free options. And get this..we were served first! At many restaurant I am typically served last and sometimes waiting 10 minutes after everyone has received their food until receiving mine. Not here! Food was great! I got the chicken club with fries. Felt fine afterwards. They also have a crem brouille for dessert. (not dairy free) It was great!
(Updating review for April 2019: seems like a few things they can do gf like Mac n cheese, onion soup etc they removed from the menu but they can do a lot of things GF still. Worth talking to your server when you sit down. They still advertise burgers, nachos, steak but you may have to ask for some of the other options).
I ate there in March (2019) and they said they had prepared everything separately and gluten free, but I got sick afterwards. I’m still new to this so I don’t really know for surewhy I got sick but it seems likely there was some gluten contamination. I see other people posted similar reviews and I hope they will figure out the issue and improve, since they seem to care about offering gluten free options.
I'm not the best indicator of gluten compromise because I'm newly diagnosed and still figuring out how I react. I can tell you that I didn't have any tummy discomfort, but I did have diarrhea the next day. Can't tell you for sure if that was connected to dinner. We were not offered gf bread like others have mentioned. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and willing to accommodate; she went back to the kitchen to ask the chef if the pecans or dressing on my salad were definitely gf. Tasty food and good options.
Great food and friendly staff. The waiter double checked most of the order and had our meals come out separately to ensure no cross contamination. I got the standard burger with the GF bun and it was great. The nacho appetizer was slammin. The waiter could have been a but more attentive and the food did take a while to come out even after the lunch rush.
WARNING! I had the same experience as the person below me- 24 hours after them. They came to the table with a chef and handed me the food and explained it had been prepared separately. I was ill immediately after. I believe there had to be someone new in the kitchen who was unaware of cross contamination.
Not suitable for celiac people. The service was really nice and they told us that they could make any dishes without gluten (gluten free) and I really enjoyed the meal. But almost immediately after eating there, I've got really sick (probably because some crossed contamination).
What a find! Beautiful seats right on the harbor. We ate outside and the view of the Christopher Columbus garden and the harbor were awesome. GF items market on the menu. Our server was knowledgeable and accommodating! I had a chicken sandwich with French fries. Best GF bun I’ve ever had and they have a separate GF Frier for the fries. Also had black cherry lemonade-yummm
They take celiac very seriously and chef delivered food to table. Brought out a GF roll while rest of family had bread. Ordered great GF nachos and cheeseburger with French fries. Loved our friendly and attentive waitress Paula!
GF items are clearly marked on the menu. Our server was very attentive to our daughter who haS Celiac, and actually made a point to thank us for letting her know. GF bread was offered to start off the meal. Very positive experience!
American Joe's restaurants are hands down one of mg favorite places for GF/dairy-free meals. They offer an extensive GF menu, GF options on their specials menu, pUdi's bread products, GF penne and dedicated fryers. The staff and management are extremely friendly and knowledgeable about allergies. I've eaten at this location 30+ times with only one incident, which I was able to detect when the meal was served. I've never been sick after eating here, and would recommend this location to anyone with a gluten allergy/celiac!
A+ on allergy awareness. Really nice waitress, completely understood celiac and allergy issues. Very accommodating. French fries in separate fryer so gluten free. Food took a little while to come out. Fantastic experience.
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!
Staff was knowledgeable, GF is clearly noted on items on the regular menu. The waitress had the bartender make me a GF sangria with Tito’s. (Which was delicious!) Brought me a GF roll in place of a bread basket. Steak was good. Outdoor dining with a nice view. Overall a great experience.
**This location is permanently CLOSED as of 06/30/2018** 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 10+ times without incident, and recommend American Joe's to anyone with a gluten allergy!
**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!
This place is absolutely celiac friendly. The managers do a great job making sure that your food is not cross contaminated and they bring it out separately even! Really good food too and a wide selection. They’re very accommodating.
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.
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.
