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.

Ate at this restaurant several times over the course of a month, each time eating a different menu selection. All menu items were consistently good and not contaminated. I highly recommend these restaurants.

There was a separate gluten free menu which was nice. The food was good not great. Everyone who was not gluten free enjoyed their meals. The gluten free pizza had nice flavor but was undercooked (which is a good sign, it means that it was cooked on something and not straight on a grill). The service was very slow but friendly, so it ended up being a good thing that we ordered an appetizer (the artichoke dip was good).

They have a separate gf menu with salads, pasta and pizza. I had a pepperoni pizza and it was delicious. I have celiac disease and am very sensitive. No reaction. I would go back.

The staff was so friendly. The food was fresh, so tasty and the service was quick! The gluten free menu was fairly large which was incredibly nice and the staff was willing to help with any substitution needed. I’m so glad we don’t have one of these places back home otherwise I’d never cook again!

Way too many people chasing fads here, if you look at the gluten free menu, it says this:

These menu items, along with noted alterations, do not have any ingredients that inherently

contain gluten. However, all of these items are prepared in a common kitchen with the risk

of gluten exposure. We cannot recommend these items for customers with celiac disease.

Customers with gluten sensitivities should exercise judgment in consuming these menu items.

In a nutshell, if you are a hipster chasing fads, this is the place to go. If you are celiac, stay away- company's own words.

May be celiac friendly but other allergens are not listed on the menu and it was very hard for me to order there having celiacs, dairy and egg allergies. Their pizza was disappointing without cheese and I'm pretty sure there was egg in it because I got sick. It was cracker thin and very hard to chew. Not enjoyable for how much it cost. I could see it being super yummy with cheese though.

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.

Their gluten-free pasta options are rather good, and the gluten-free pizza crust is okay if not a bit overly thin/crunchy.
