    Would give it 0 if possible. I ordered the baked cod with mashed potatoes. it took them an hour to get us our food blaming it on the fact that it takes 25 minutes to cook it. then it gets here and has gravy on it...Don't come here they are very inconsiderate.

    Staff was not very knowledgable or helpful understanding their menu. Very disappointed in the options available.

    I found the gluten-sensitive (they won't claim that dishes are gluten-free due to the possibility of cross-contamination) menu to be adequate and to have a good diversity of meat choices. However, my waitress was completely uneducated regarding the menu and totally unhelpful. I asked which potato options were gluten free since the menu didn't state, and she answered dismissively, "I have no idea," with no offer to find out for me. I ordered a steak with baked potato. I fortunately was not glutened. I probably won't be back unless I hear that the wait staff has been properly trained.

    I ordered gluten free here without a problem. I think I've eaten here twice since I've had to go gluten free. Their food is pretty good. I never had a problem ordering from here even though some of their front staff are not quite as knowledgeable compared to other restaurants. I would probably go back again.

    Had a Limited GF menu - no problem. Unfortunately had a waitress that didn't know about Celiac. Salad came with croutons (reminded her while ordering). Asked for new one. Picked off most croutons and returned to me (mentioned that need a new one since there are crumbs). Manager came over afterwards extremely apologetic. Really very very sincere. Nice people, not well trained. Waitress that was not concerned with CD. Concerned managers can't protect you from unconcerned staff.

    I ordered the grill chicken with a baked potato. It came with cole slaw and cottage cheese. It also came with bread but two of us ordered from the menu so that's why it was brought to the table. Everything was okay, what you'd expect for family style/comfort food.

    Machine Shed is a great restaurant. Pre-celiac I ate here many, many times since I was a child. After being diagnosed I was happy to see they had a gluten free menu. I called ahead to discuss my options as a celiac and was given recommendations. The server knew about my situation right away when I arrived. I felt very comfortable here and I think the server, management and cook all understood the issues well. I'd love to see you expand your gluten free options and procedures.
