    This restaurant is awful and the owner is beyond stubborn and uninformed! I was asking the basic questions as to how things were prepared and what ingredients made the dish, and the owner was unnecessarily defensive in her response. There are inadequate substitutions for gluten free options, and when asked why something as simple as buns couldn't be kept in the freezer, she answers with there is no room, as if a pack of buns really takes up much space?! Also, it was very disturbing in her defense that she was ranting that they don't have a certified gluten free kitchen, as if there is such a thing, so there is no guarantees about cross-contamination, and when asked what was in the sauce that came on the side of my dish, she said it was completely fine, then mentions worscester sauce as an ingredient, not knowing that it contains gluten, after which I told her, and her mumbled response was that there is only a spoonful... NEVER going back!!!

    This place cares about us and it's absolutely amazing. For all the places that don't cater to us...this place makes up for it. Gator bites are unbelievable.

    Absolutely amazing! The food is outstanding, best BBQ I've had in a really long time, they even havea gf chocolate souffle (takes 30 min). They are really careful about cross contamination and I had no problems. I recommend making a reservation.

    I am so excited about this place!! Found it last minute on Find Me GF and I am sooo happy I did!! Let me start off with the like 10 page menu of drinks...crazy! My margaritas were so delicious made with 100% agave tequila and fresh lime juice!! No nasty mixes! Never thought I would try it but I did....The Gator Bites were so good!! And the Crab fingers soaked in garlic and butter...yummmm. Had the Blackened redfish ontop of Collard Greens. Even though I was stuffed half way through I couldn't stop eating it!! And even the collards were amazing. Everyone not having GF with me was living their food too. Especially the Bluegrass Pie. They were going nuts for it. Can't wait to go back and try the GF desserts too!!

    what a terrific surprise. Mara's Homemade is a gem in the gf world. A menu filled with surprises of fluent free foods not modified to fit the bill. The menu is a looseleaf binder with ten pages. 5 of which are ever type of liquor known to man And the the five pages are incredible dishes with a cajin southern flavor. David the proprietor is a warm funny southern flavor(from Arkansas) gentlemen filled with funny stories. Rory our waiter was wonderfully attentive and patient to our large group. Mara's Homemade is a not to be missed mom and pop establishment.
