Excellent meal! Excellent establishment. A complete separate GF menu. I ordered a mixed drink, grilled chicken with pickled cucumber salad and red mashed potatoes. The food quality was excellent. The manager came out and gave me a free appetizer of edamame since it was our first time in and he was notified of my celiac. He said they take precautions to ensure safety. I was not cross-contaminated. I can’t believe someone hasn’t reviewed this place yet! You have to try it. Perfect place for a date night.

Had the sweet and sour bowl and was skeptical because the chicken seemed breaded, but I had them double check and it was just rice! I am extremely sensitive and ate it with no issues. Super tasty.

Very small gluten free menu, especially in comparison to their normal menu. But they are being as careful as they can to actually be GF even though they just say Gluten Sensitive. Had the grilled chicken and it was cooked very nicely, but was very plain.

I was glutened at this restaurant. I ordered the Tex mex salad. Had a horrible reaction. Their menu says they can’t guarantee that anything marked as “gluten sensitive” will be free of gluten due to cross contamination. I thought it would be fine to order a salad. I was so wrong. I will not be going back.

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.

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.

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.

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.
