    Our waiter was amazing! He was very nice & made sure I was taken care of. The burger I ordered did come out on a normal bun at first, luckily my friend had also gotten a burger so I was able to spot the difference. They made me a new burger which was delicious but the bun completely fell apart. Which happens, I get it. They do not have a dedicated GF fryer so I subbed cheese grits which were amazing!

    They have a GF menu and the fryer is dedicated during the day time but for the evening it is used to fry all sorts of things and they use fresh oil daily, so if you eat lunch you can have the fries. I had the black n blue hamburger minus the onion fries on the Udi GF bun, however I took my GlutenEase pills before I ate because the bun was grilled and I was worried it would make me sick, I did not get sick.

    I love this place for regular food but for GF. They do not have a dedicated fryer. The server said the fryer is dedicated when they blanch the fries in the am but then they put other stuff in it. Facepalm.

    This is a good restaurant but they have recently changed their policy and simply state they “can’t guarantee anything is gluten free.” Gluten free menu was not available. Our server offered a few suggestions and I ended up getting grilled salmon and had no problem.

    Had the most amazing burger with a BUN! HAD to wait a while to get a table but so worth it!

    Super good. They have a gluten free menu and a dedicated fryer. I had a burger with a gluten free bun, the bun was really good. I highly reccomend this place

    I was served gluten even though I ordered off the GF menu. Then they remade it and it had gluten again. Restaurants shouldn’t say they have gluten free if they don’t know what to do to prepare it. Very disappointing.

    The server was friendly and knowledgeable however they do use a shared fryer so no french fries or other fried foods such as chicken wings are safe. Just make sure you let them know and ask about items that you're unsure of.

    Nice gluten free menu. Some items were noted to be cooked in a shared fryer. Daughter had wings and fries without issues.

    Also called the Local Goat. Had wings and fries. Some of the best fries I’ve ever had. Dedicated fryer for fries. Knowledgeable about what I had to stay away from (not Celiac). Even brought me a warm wet towel for after my wings. Would definitely go back.

    Just ate here for the first time based on ratings here. Service was quite slow but the server was nice and helpful. Had a burger with a GF bun and baked potato. She checked in the FF but they are not in a dedicated fryer so no go. Really good burger though would eat here again in future. Limited menu.

    The staff was very knowledgeable. Our waiter verified everything I ordered was gluten free including my drink order. It has an excellent atmosphere, many delicious locally sourced options and wonderful drink options.

    Locally owned treasure! Local food from sustainable sources. Had an amazing burger on a gluten free bun! Fries are not GF but all the other side dishes are. They do bake rolls and bread on-site but buy already made GF buns. All the food is scratch made so it's very easy to find out ingredients! No hidden junk to cover up the taste of mediocre food. Our server wasn't able to answer my GF questions so she went to get a manager. In less than a minute manager was at the table to answer my questions. I felt very comfortable eating there and had no problems afterwards. And the prices were great for the exceptional quality of the food! No, I'm not related to the owners but was very excited to get a high quality burger on a GF bun at an affordable price, especially in a town where many restaurants don't care if they get repeat customers. Definitely my new favorite restaurant!!
