The Gluten Free Fried chicken is amazing!! The staff is very accommodating and knowledgeable. The menu is clear about what dishes are already gf and what can be altered to be gf and vegan. I will definitely be back to try brunch!
Awesome gluten free fried chicken Fabulous cocktails My scallops were to die for! If you tell them you need gluten free, they put in dedicated fryers
Waiter double checked on several ingredients without being asked. Had shrimp and grits and felt fine the next day. Great wine!
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!
The best GF fried chicken . very good shrimp and grits
Those with Celiac, I have two words for you....FRIED CHICKEN!!!!!They had a nice selection of gluten free food and the server even brought out freshly made gluten free donuts! I never eat fried food at restaurants for the simple reason of cross contamination, but this business has a dedicated space along with a dedicated fryer!!The server also told me the reason they're so careful is that the owner cannot eat gluten either. Whether the owner has Celiac or not they are taking the correct steps in order to prevent cross contamination. We will be back!!
Had a very memorable, delicious meal here, just a block from the convention center! I had the GF fried chicken salad and it was absolutely perfect. Would go again in a heartbeat. Note that some of their items are done in shared fryers -- wanted to tried the fried deviled eggs but they are done in a shared fryer. (GF chicken is separate/safe.)
Second time having the gf country fried chicken and it’s to DIE FOR! They have a dedicated fryer and the sides of potatoes and collard greens were scrumptious. I don’t know how they can make the breading so crispy and flaky but it’s simply delectable. They have a honey chipotle sauce for dipping on the side that ignited my tastebuds in a world of salty, crispy, sweet, and tangy. I’m truly thankful for Max’s Wine Dive for their dedication to celiac safe cuisine that makes me feel like a normal diner.
I'm a celiac and tried this restaurant visiting Austin. The sous chef Rob came out to let me know they had an potential contamination issue and they were changing the fryer's oil. He then sent out a complimentary plate of amazing made in-house gluten free crackers, fruit and cheese. Service and food are fantastic.
Owner is celiac and they take gluten free seriously. The manager Ryan was very friendly and helpful. I also have allergies to alliums (onion and garlic) and he talked to the chef and came back with 3 recommendations. They could do a burger or their grilled chicken. I got the latter with mashed potatoes and it was wonderful. 3 hours later not throwing up, so I know it was safe. Mellow restaurant bar near the convention center. Good selection of wine and beer on tap. Not too crowded or too loud. I would go back again for sure.
For the first time I enjoyed the pleasure of having gluten free fried chicken with mash potatoes and greens. The chicken was simply delicious. Very nice atmosphere and the music was great. Look forward to going back. The gentleman that took our order, very knowledgeable about what is happening downtown Austin. We had an extra great time because of his information.
The entire waitstaff was very friendly and our waitress made sure my meal was gluten free in all aspects. Their menu is over half marked (GF) “gluten friendly” and a couple items are (AGF) “ask for gluten friendly.” The thought to have great tasting fried chicken that is gluten friendly was an amazing treat as well. Even the fried deviled eggs were made with potato flour, so an extra added treat to have an appetizer as well. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone.
I have Celiac and have to be very careful what and where I eat. I have severe reactions to even small amounts of gluten. I was excited but afraid to eat here. they told me the owner has Celiac. So it made me feel a little bit better. There menu has options that can be prepared gluten free. I had the FRIED CHICKEN ; mashed potatos and collard greens. Huge servings. breast thigh and leg. It was Awesome!! And I didn't get sick.Yeah!! they also have a dedicated fryer... woo hoooo!! And the wine was great too... I will be back!!!
We stopped here based on good reviews but the entire experience was terrible, start to finish. They said the fried chicken would take 30 minutes but it took an hour. We ordered Caesar salad while we waited and it never arrived. Then there was some sort of contamination after waiting an hour for our food and we saw the chef yelling at our server that the menu says ‘gluten-friendly’, not ‘gluten-free’... We were told the fries were not gluten free on the tender basket and that we would get a salad instead, but guess what was brought out, with the tenders sitting right on top...fries! Absolutely terrible experience. After waiting an hour! We were in at 2pm and there were very few tables, almost no one else in the entire restaurant- stay away if you’re celiac. We should have known when we saw ‘gluten friendly’ instead of ‘gluten free’ on the menu but took a risk based on positive reviews. Wrong choice.
One of my favorite restaurant experiences! Great wine list. Great music! Great service! And the fried chicken was AMAZING! The chef came out after I was eating to check and asked me if I was celiac. I am not but my daughter is. However I eat 100% GF as well.
I got severely glutened from this place. I had the crab cake and gf fried chicken. They reassured me that it was a separate fryer and all celiac friendly but they mentioned they had a new chef that had started and he must not be aware of the sensitivities of celiac as I got very sick immediately after eating here. Beware.
Awesome gf fried chicken! My highly sensitive daughter has eaten here twice with no symptoms. I would have given the entire meal four stars but we had a few waiters due to one going off duty so I was given my husband's beer rather than my gf cider I ordered. We switched upon figuring out and luckily I didn't suffer any symptoms.
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.
Love this place! They remember my gluten allergy when I make a reservation and even ask "are there anymore allergies we should be aware of?" The fried chicken and collard greens are off the hook. Great brunch menu also. I always feel safe eating here.
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.
