We haven't had any problems and the food is delicious (entrees in particular; some of the sides are kind of bland). The fried chicken is a specialty and is certainly among the best I've ever had, gluten-free or not. Be sure to specify gluten-free fried chicken, since they prepare it both ways.
Great GF fried chicken
It was Restaurant Week so they had a limites menu, but still plenty of options including gluten-free fries chicken. I haven't had fried chicken since being diagnosed celiac and this didn't disappoint! Great atmosphere and staff. I would definitely visit again! Probably a good idea to make reservations - we got lucky without them.
On line menu is not updated. Was looking forward to gf shrimp/grits because it was on the web menu, then after arriving found out it was not gf. Chef was knowledgable and I ate there w/o getting sick, but they need to keep up w their menu on line. Had the tasting menu w the wine pairings, it was just ok. Wine portions very small.
Gluten-free fried chicken that tastes just like the real thing!
Great food and several gluten free options. The owner of this chain actually has Celiac, so the staff is trained in handling the food.
I think i died and went to gluten free heaven. Damn delicious Gluten free fried chicken! Fried cod. Pork stuffed peppers. Brunch goat cheese mushroom omelet with cheese grits! Everything is awesome. Regular menu includes which items are gluten free. Cool decor and people too.
Their GF jalapeño buttermilk fried chicken was amazing! We also had a great salad with huge jumbo shrimp. Great bubbles list too. They were very careful with our GF order and told us the round plates indicate GF while the square are not gf. Several people came to check on our order and reassure us throughout the eve.
We were so excited to try the fried chicken after reading the reviews. When ordering I informed the waitress that my kids had celiac disease. The sous chef then came out to talk to us and told us he did not feel it was safe for us to eat at the restaurant. He said he can't confirm that the dedicated fryers were actually being used correctly. I appreciated the honesty but do not recommend for celiacs.
Fried chicken and greens! OMG the best chicken, even counting before I found out I had celiacs! Staff was kind and low key about my request for extra caution without drawing undue attention to me like some restaurants have to act like it's a big production to bring out gluten free food to a customer and I just want a dining experience like every other customer!
First time we ate here it was GREAT. Chicken was juicy and tasty and best of all gluten free. But these last two times I have gotten sick. I'm celiac and I did tell the waiter. I do not get sick right away and when I do I'm just trying to get home rather than call them back. Not sure if the chef is the same? I was so happy to finally find fried chicken but now I don't think we are going back. Not worth the consequences.
Love love love this place. The owner of the company is actually Celiac so it's a big deal for them. The gluten free fried chicken is fried in a dedicated fryer (although it takes about 25 minutes to cook, more if it's busy) and is one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten. The staff there is also super friendly, and I will definitely be going back there.
I've only found gf fried chicken one other time in 4 years and this was far superior! Crispy, crunchy, tender inside and not greasy. Also had bone marrow popcorn. Very good! Lots of choices. It is a seasonal menu. Came with a large group, many who ordered regular fried chicken. Mine was on a black plate. Everyone raved.
Quite a few things: 1) Website does not accurately reflect the amount of options. You will have stuff to eat here! 2) Unless you're a vegetarian. I recently started eating meat and thank goodness. Would only have 1 option, you guessed it, a salad. 3) The service I had was TERRIBLE! Our waiter basically ignored my mother and I. Took forever to order, constantly sipping empty water glasses, he wasn't friendly. Very off out from that. 4) I was excited for the GF chicken and GF zucchini bread, but the chicken was SPICY. It's not talked about on this app. Also zucchini bread wasn't on menu- maybe it's seasonal? This app greatly talked up Max's. Service brought my ranking down. It seems overrated from previous reviews. That said, it is a safe place to eat.
Terrific experience. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about celiac disease and took great care of me. The plate my boyfriend ordered was not originally gluten free but they happily modified it so I could share with him. The GF fried chicken was to die for! As were the pb&j wings! I highly recommend it!
