This order was placed at the Crossgates mall location in Albany. I have ordered the same dish, crusted chicken Romano- gluten free of course, for months and I have had quite a few mishaps happen. If you order here you really, REALLY need to clarify your allergy. Tonight I picked up my order and it said gluten free on the ticket, but luckily I noticed that the pasta was different which made it NOT gluten free. The person who helped me, Gage, happily made me a fresh order and gave me a complimentary gluten free cupcake and another order of sweet potato fries with my order! They are very accommodating of allergies but you must reassure with your server or the person taking your order. I will be going back again but just making sure they know it’s gluten free for celiac disease.

They served me a non- gluten free appetizer when I asked for gluten free multiple times. The appetizer was labeled as something that could be made gluten free, meaning they had a non-gf version and a gf version. When I ordered they waitress told me it’s always gluten free. I start to feel sick by the time my main dish was served. I never tried the main dish (gave it to my non-gf husband) and will never go back.

They have a decent selection but the quality is iffy and they have, in the past, screwed up my takeout order and mixed gluten stuff with GF. Items are not clearly marked on menu but almost everything has GF option. Be careful and thorough in making sure what you get is GF. Go next door to 110 grill instead.

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.

I’ve been a couple of times. Once I had chicken wings and French fries - what a treat!! I’m removing a star because I had a side salad and found a bug in it - gross! I would go back, especially when I’m craving something fried or a drink from the bar, but I’m pretty nervous about their salads... oh, I also tried their GF cupcake and it was great!

Gluten free items clearly labeled on the menu. Rice flour fried options. Lots of GF pasta options. Clearly says they have a dedicated frier for fries. The wait staff was friendly and offered to double check with the chef if the burger was GF. GF cupcake dessert option.

They served a non gluten free meal to someone ordering gluten free and were only concerned about the incident report being completed

Great GF menu. There are many soups and appetizers marked GF. I had the Buffalo Nachos and they were fabulous.

I explained I needed gluten free and that they had a dedicated fryer. We ate spinach artichoke dip (verified gf) and for a meal I had chicken fingers and fries, which arrived with an allergen stick poked into it. 4 hours later I vomited all contents of my stomach out, so severely ill that I popped blood vessels around my eyes. I would never ever ever trust this place again and I will never recommend anyone go there who has celiac disease. This happened 11/27/19. They were also not busy at all. So disappointing and now I have the “gluten hangover” for thanksgiving day, and who knows for how much longer....

Amazing food with a dedicated fryer and plenty of gf options. So many options that it was difficult to choose what I wanted. I Had the fried chicken dinner and it was delicious. A bit pricy but got more than 2 meals out of it. Can't wait to come back to explore more of their menu

Best place in VB! The reviews were spot on. I had the GF fish and chips and it was absolutely delicious. It came with plenty of fries and strips of chicken. They have a dedicated fryer. Also, they had two gf cupcakes. They were a little dense and dry, but they had great flavor. This is a must go to in VB.

We went to Maggie McFly's in Brookfield on June 16th 2022 because after much research, it seemed safe and they had many GF options. It was our first restaurant since my 9 year old daughter was diagnosed 8 months ago. I informed our waiter that my daughter has celiac disease. They told me they have many gluten-free options for her, so we were very excited to try. Upon ordering her gluten-free chicken tenders and Fries I verified that it was made in a separate area and was cooked in a separate fryer. I also handed them our equal eats celiac disease sticky note to remind them to change their gloves and be extra careful. Unfortunately when her food arrived the chicken tenders tested positive for gluten with our Nima partners sensor. The fries tested safe, and they were both fried in the same fryer...so it had to be a cross contamination.

The waiter and manager were very friendly and apologetic. They offered to make her a hamburger in a seperate pan. Unfortunately that tested positive for gluten too! The manager was stunned and said it must be cross contamination in the plate area since the fries were served in a cup not a plate. He had no idea that flour can remain airborne for quite a while and he did say they use wheat flour in the kitchen.

Anyway, we went home with a very hungry 9 year old and a realization that we ell only eat out at dedicated gluten free restaurants.

I go here all the time. I love that they have gluten free fish and chips. Certainly a rare find.

You have to ask for fresh rice flour to be used as it will taste stale otherwise.
