Menu items marked with GF. Mostly salads, but they also offer Udi’s gluten free bread and wraps. I ordered the Cobb Salad. Very small dining area but good salad.

When my family of 4 celiacs arrived waiter informed us there is no dedicated gluten free kitchen space, and gluten and non gluten buns are on the same grill. Spoke to the main chief and he confirmed nothing is strictly free of cross contaimination.

Since this was the weekend of my wedding I did not want to get glutened so 4 of the 12 people who met there could not eat.

I talked to the staff and they said they use the all the same equipment (pots, pans, cutting boards) for their gluten free dishes. I did not feel comfortable eating here. I feel like I was mislead by their website and the reviews on this website and the staff was not helpful.

I ordered the Broughton Cobb Salad and a side of steamed shrimp. The salad was huge and had lots of bacon, egg, advocation and red onion. It had chicken also but it was very dry. My husband ordered shrimp on his spinach salad snd let me have one. Well, that was enough to make me order a side of shrimp. It was BEST I’ve had in a long time, seasoned to perfection.

One of the very few places I trust for a safe gluten free meal in Savannah. A very casual restaurant. The food always tastes fresh and, most importantly, I've never felt sick after eating here.

I would die for the chefs at the Kayak Kafé. Their window says “All Diets Welcome” and they mean it! The best gluten/dairy free restaurant I’ve encountered. Waiters are all knowledgeable and understanding. GO HERE!

I had the Mexican chicken salad. It was good; next time I would add avocado as it only came with 3 slices. GF and vegetarian options marked on main menu. We ate outside around 4pm and were the only customers so no issues with social distancing.

I go to the midtown location every now and then. My most recent trip there was my first since going GF. They have wings, salads, and tacos with corn tortilla options. I love the BBQ pineapple tacos. And Damon is the most awesome bartender in town.

If your going to eat here get some tacos. I ordered a sandwich on an udi’s gluten free bun. It did not look like udi’s. After some deliberation I asked to compare the udi’s to a regular bun... they looked the same. I ended up not eating it since I can’t risk getting sick. All the food is made in the same 5ft by 5ft kitchen. Also the salt shaker was producing salt and we opened it up to find rust all in the top portion of the shaker. So much so that there was actually a huge chunk of red salt from it. I know it’s humid here but they obviously don’t clean those everyday like most restaurants.

The young lady assigned to my party's table gave off the impression that we were an inconvenience. If not for the manager (or owner?), who was inviting and left me with the impression that she was glad we came to patronize the business, I would not think about ever going back. The hummus is good. It does have kick. The corn tortillas served to me were supposed to be toasted but came out limp and a little too chewy.

Service was overwhelmed at lunch during heavy lunch crowd. But, they were very kind and if you are patient, they are understanding about allergies. Sandwiches are served on a Udi's bun, which is ok but not sandwich like. Food was ok, but not great. Would eat there again for the precautions, but that would be the primary reason.

Service very slow. Waitress not friendly. Waited 10 minutes to take drink order. Waited another 10 minutes for drinks to be delivered. Sign on window says "Fast Fresh Friendly ". Certainly not fast or friendly! Now 30 minutes in and still no food. Finally was served lunch after 35+ minutes. Mac 'n Cheese was very good and the Cuban was good too. Most likely would never go back.

Their menu states that they can adapt many items to be GF but when I asked about certain dishes the two waitresses I spoke with didn't seem familiar with the restrictions of a celiac diet. However they were trying hard to be helpful and willing to provide me with whatever information I needed, including bringing out bottles so I could check the ingredients. Their food was delicious (I ate alone while my husband with celiac was in a meeting), had options for vegetarians, a very friendly staff and atmosphere, and was in a convenient location downtown. It would be a great spot for anyone on a GF restricted diet that is non-celiac and/or does not have a wheat allergy. For those with celiac proceed with high caution and ask before ordering.

Mediocre at best! Gluten free here is sort of deceiving. The menu states that almost any item can be made gluten free, but in actuality the only options are primarily tacos and salads. They do not have any gluten bread so their extensive sandwich choices are off limits. Although the tacos were fresh and tasty all our meals arrived at different times. Very disappointed.
