The food is good (according to my husband) but the GF pizza is not safe for Celiacs. So then you're left with steaks or salads with modifications.

They did have gluten free pasta and pizza but it’s not celiac friendly. Our waitress was super kind and explained that it was all run on the same line and the ingredients are not separate. My husband had to leave and take my daughter elsewhere while I dined with our other kids.

Delicious GF pizza! It tastes too good to be true, but the crust is just amazing. I'm Celiac & I've never had an issue eating here.

There are other GF items (like chili), but many servers aren't up to speed on GlutenFree options.

My family was traveling through Bismarck on our trip from Seattle to Baltimore. Being that three members of my family have celiac disease, I consulted Find Me Gluten Free and was excited that there was a pizza place just across from the hotel we were staying at that served GF pizza. My sons are 3 and 5 and very picky eaters, and adding the celiac thing to that makes eating out challenging.

My 5-year-old was so excited to get GF pizza and ordered a beautiful GF cheese pizza. When the waitress brought out the pizza, I was pleasantly surprised. It looked like real pizza. I couldn't believe my eyes, so I tried it. I was so shocked by how much like real pizza it looked and tasted (the texture was fantastic) that I verified with the waitress that it was in fact GF. She confirmed that it was; she even said, "It's really good, right?"

But it wasn't. My poor boy ate almost the entire pizza. And the next day, as we drove to Minneapolis, he had diarrhea the ENTIRE TIME. There were quite a few stops and some accidents. I had to put him in a diaper because bathrooms were not appearing as frequently as they were needed. He was so sick and embarrassed. I don't know if she brought the wrong pizza or if the GF pizza was coated in wheat flour, but there was definitely gluten in his food that night because everything else he had eaten that day I had provided. Celiacs beware.

I am new to the GF life, so I have been a bit anxious about eating out. Saw this on the app, and then I saw their GF menu. Pizza tasted great, and came out on a tray lined with parchment paper. Would eat here again.

McKenzie River has a separate gluten-free menu. I ordered a salad and gluten-free personal pizza from the menu. A few hours afterward I could feel the effects of gluten, just enough that I believe there was some cross-contamination. This just adds to me belief that pizza places are just too dangerous for Celiacs; with so much flour in pizza places, cross contamination is very likely. It may be okay for folks with just gluten sensitivity but not for celiacs.

Knowledgeable about working around allergies, my daughter has nut allergies and celiac. They were upfront about the flourless cake being nut free but the current spatula sitting under it had been touching something else. So they seem to understand it

Had the gluten free appetizer— bread logs, with marinara sauce and then the gluten free cheese pizza. All was wonderful!!! I am celiac and had no problems, although I did play it very safe with just cheese pizza.

I am gluten intolerant and my husband is celiac. We went here for dinner and each had a gluten free pasta off the “Hold the Gluten” menu. We also had an on tap cider. Neither of us had a reaction. Pasta was good and not gummy like a lot of gf pasta. We wanted pizza but they were the only chain open in the area so pizza was a long wait. Not sure the process for their pizza and cross contamination but our waitress was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We would go again.
