Many items on the menu can be made gluten free and are indicated as such on the menu. Their gluten free chicken tenders are very good and crispy. My gluten-eating child happily splits an order of them with her celiac brother!

The staff were so knowledgeable about gf. Almost everything can be made gf and is celiac friendly! Even a dedicated fryer! I had a burger and fries and they were delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant to those with celiac and also those without it.

Burger was fantastic and their gluten free bread comes from The Cheese Bread Factory so it is also delicious. Service was a bit odd but it was ‘off’ normal lunch hours. Large, comfy booths for big groups!

Came in to order food to go and ordered the chili with a side of fries. Didn’t realize that I never got the fries till I got home. There weren’t many gf options on the menu like I thought there would be maybe cause I wAs in a rush. I did get the gf chocolate cake and that was awesome!

I will give them some credit (two stars) that they do have a lot of GF options, my only complaint is the pizza... my son ordered a gluten free pizza which was so paper thin it couldn't hold the toppings, every time he would pick up a piece the toppings would fall off, completely inedible. The server asked if everything was ok (pizza was uneaten/fallen apart) when I explained he couldn't eat it, he acted as if that was how GF pizza just was and would we like a box? When I declined the to go box he put the check on the table and left, no apologies - just like tough luck, this is your crappy GF pizza. And we've had LOTS of decent GF pizza, yes, the crusts are thin, but, they are at least edible!!!

The food here is so good! They have a lot of options for gf/celiac. The waitstaff seems pretty knowledgeable, and the menu even specifies that there is a separate gf fryer for fries and chips and even gf chicken tenders! I love the burgers (bread is cheese bread from the local Gluten Free Oasis and it's awesome) and pasta.

The menu is well marked with the GF symbol, they will substitute pasta for gf pasta, fries are cooked in a dedicated fryer, and you can get a burger on a locally-made Brazilian Cheese Bread bun. Highly recommend.

WOW... What a great place for Celiac (and non celiac). My son could not have been happier with all the choices, not to mention the dessert. Waiter was great, wrote down "celiac" on his food order sheet so the kitchen would know. Will be back here for sure!!

Lots of GF options so we always order too much food! :) Some servers are more knowledgeable than others but even the ones who aren't up on GF are good about asking and getting back to us.

Ordered gluten free French onion soup. Took a spoonful and got a lump of bread. The manager apologized and said the check ( for the food I couldn't eat) was on her.... Nothing more. Left hungry and am waiting for the pain to start.

I would love to give this restaurant more stars because they have a good selection of gluten free menu items and they have a dedicated gluten free area where the food is prepared. But I can't because the Maggie McFly's in Brookfield needs to train their waitstaff about gluten cross-contamination and how to ensure that the cooks who get your order are notified that it needs to be gluten-free. Last time I was there, the waitress failed to notify the cooks, and did not check the order before delivering it to me. I was given a regular meal, not gluten-free as I'd asked, and sent it back. I no longer trusted them and so I left.

I maight add that the Maggies in Southbury is wonderful and very careful about the food they serve to their gluten intolerant patrons, so from now on I will go there instead.

This place is terrific for the GF diner, large selection of GF. They have a dedicated fryer. My wife has been GF for 12yrs, was able to have ‘fish & chips’ very lite & delicious. HIGHLY recommend Maggie’s McFlys.

Ordered takeout first night we were in town. Food was pretty good. I had chips and guac and truffle fries. Would eat again. Probably better in person too.

Staff is excellent, food is out of this world. Separate gf fryers, tons of gf options on menu. Separate kitchen prep. So many great options. Ate twice in one weekend I loved it so much. No reaction-have celiac AND dermatitis herpaformis. Reactions are noticable and sensitive. Event have gf cupcakes and the menu tells you exactly where the gf options are sourced from i.e cheesecake factory ect. My non gf by also loved his food. We had deviled eggs, I had short rib grilled cheese on a Brazilian cheese bread bun-TO DIE FOR. my bf ordered his on a"gf" bun the next day it was so delicious. Highly recommend.
