I have celiac and am very sensitive. The server was really nice and helpful and patient, but unfortunately I got glutened anyway, so I'm afraid I can't eat here again. But they tried. Pry someone in the kitchen was just lazy and absent mindedly X-contaminated something. I may try them again sometime in the future in case it was a fluke.

There are tons of gluten free and dairy free options and the staff are generally well trained about gluten free. If you're very sensitive, ask for Nick or Sam as they are experts regarding gluten free options. The fryers are *not* free from cross-contamination, so avoid the fried tortillas or anything else fried.

Very attentive staff. The server sent the manager out, who told us he would talk to the culinary team and tell them to use the "gluten-free kit." P.S. If you get the cobb salad, get the dressing on the side because otherwise your salad will drown in it.

Carrot cake is made with almond flour and delicious. Just keep in mind they don't have a dedicated gf kitchen so the gf menu is labeled gluten sensitive

Separate gluten-free menu and educated staff on celiac disease. Only reason I didn’t give 5 was because food was good but kind of bland since they leave out all sauces and most flavorings. However, I still had NO reaction! Better than nothing, lol

Gluten-sensitive. I looked it up online to find out what is suppose to be “gluten sensitive” and they had a list of items. As it is at most places it a mixed kitchen with gluten items. I had a lunch special with chicken tortilla soap and baby greens salad. I did ask for no croutons on my salad and they did but it wasn’t many so I just picked them off. This was my first time trying this place. So over all not too bad but I’m also not a celiac so as always know what your ordering.

Full GF menu, sauces are made in-house and only one contains gluten. The staff are knowledgeable. I wouldn’t recommend the shrimp tacos, but everything else at our table was reportedly excellent.

There is a Gluten Free menu which is rather large and includes a dessert option. It is clearly stated at the top of the menu that there is risk of cross contamination, but with that I spoke to the waiter and let them know I have celiac and he seemed well versed on how to handle the food. I ordered the grilled chicken, with mashed potatoes, black beans and a side of chicken tortilla soup. It was all good, although the chicken was rather bland. They do have a bunch of in house sauces they make but I was a little too nervous to give them a try, not sure if they were GF or not. It’s been about 3 hours since I left the restaurant and I haven’t had any issues. Definitely a place I can add to my “safe” list.

Great restaurant, but not for anyone who is celiac. The gluten free menu is a joke, and has mainly drinks on it. Will not be returning as it is so limited, also staff does not seem to know what gluten even is.

Gluten sensitive menu was promising but the hamburger (no bun) I ordered from it came up as gluten found when tested with Nima. My companions enjoyed their meals. Would not recommend for Celiacs.

GF menu is extremely limited, restaurant is crowded and loud thanks to the poor design. I didn't get glutened – but the meal was bad. The server didn't seem to understand the importance of cross contamination, so I wouldn't trust eating at the place again. My husband ate my leftovers and said he could have gotten something better at McDonalds.

The staff were really nice and tried to be accommodating. They have a gluten free menu however they outright state that they are NOT a gluten free kitchen and there is chance of cross contamination in their kitchen so it’s not celiac safe. My lunch mate said the food is pretty good, though she is not gluten free.

Long story short... I ordered my food off of the gluten free menu, specifically noting that it is not a "preference" and to please note "allergy". The meal I ordered is shown on both menus, and I was not the only one ordering this dish... so I wanted to make it clear. My meal arrived the same as the other, and the server was not aware of one being gluten free. We asked to talk to our waitress.... I was told that it was gluten free and she questioned me on why I didn't trust it. She had 2 other people come out to confirm that it was gluten free... I still didn't trust it due the potato side that is typically made with flour. Finally the GM came over, told me that the dish is gluten free noting that he discussed it with the chef. OK, I feel better. As he turned to walk away, he turned back to me and said "Unless you can't have the flour in the potatoes"... we blew up a little, and he grabbed my plate and stormed off saying "I told him that the flour might be an issue!". He brought my plate back with a different potato option, clarifying that it is definitely gluten free. Our waitress came back a while later to check on us... out of curiosity we asked if she noted the order as gluten free. She said "No, I didn't. The dish is shown on the gluten free menu and the regular menu so it should be gluten free". We let her know that the gluten free menu has substituted items to make it gluten free, and that I could have been seriously ill if I had trusted them. She blew it off as a menu issue and not her fault. In the end, I was still sick that night. Not as severe as it could have been though. The waitress, general manager, and the chef failed to know what needed to be done for a dish on their gluten free menu to actually be gluten free. Major fail, and I have no intentions of trying again.

They have amazing options on a GF menu. The servers are aware and friendly. My favorite to get is the Chicken Tortilla Soup and also the Hummus with Vegetables which is huge and very flavorful. There are tons of options. Definitely a place I attend regularly.

Wide variety of options and cuisine. A “something for everyone” place. Love that they have a separate printed GF menu with safe choices or items that can be modified. Rice bowls, chicken entrees, lettuce wrap burger, some salad options. Fun vibe and friendly staff that was familiar with needs of a GF diner.

Always have had a great gluten-free experience at Lazy Dog. Staff have been very knowledgeable and careful. And it’s great that you can bring your dogs if you eat outside on the patio. They’re very doggie friendly. They always bring the dogs water and even have a doggie menu. Nice restaurant!

They are a Lazy Dog when it comes to their gluten free menu. The regular menu is filled with mouth watering selections. They hand you the gluten free menu and it looks like a weight watchers menu, such as hamburger patty on a slice of lettuce. Very disappointing. Many of the regular items look like they could make it a gluten free option like a salad without croutons, but they don’t make an effort to customize their menu to give you a bigger selection. Wont be back. It took too long to figure out what I could eat.

It is gluten friendly but not suitable if you have celiac. We tried it twice and she was sick both times. They specify that it is not gluten free but she liked it before she got diagnosed so we wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately it didn’t work out.

Great experience. The gluten free menu says across the top "ask your server to notify management about your allergy." I did so, and the manager was very helpful and attentive. I had Tex-Mex salad without tortilla strips (we weren't 100% sure about the fryer) and the GF lemon cake, which was delicious. My Nima tester failed on the entree (bad capsule), but gave me a GF result for the cake.
