    Good food at OK price. They have gluten free buns and other entrees labeled as gluten free.

    Not for celiacs. A chaotic environment, lots of young, poorly trained staff. There is a gluten free menu, but staff is not trained to avoid cross contamination. My celiac daughter got sick immediately after eating a kid's burger with gluten free bun. Would not go back.

    They have gluten free bread, but I was disappointed by it. It was thick, like a hamburger bun, overpowering my grilled cheese. I appreciate the effort though

    I ate here for the first time with my celiac support group. The food was good but not top notch. The atmosphere is the main draw. I spoke to another friend with a celiac child who went there and didn't feel the chef/kitchen was properly trained on avoiding cross contamination because the chef said that his oven was 500 degrees and not to worry. He clearly didn't understand that gluten can't be eliminated at high temperatures. I don't think I would eat here again after hearing that since I have silent celiac and don't get gastrointestinal symptoms from being glutened but still get internal damage to my intestines and villi. They also don't have a separate area of the kitchen, seperate pots, pans, cutting boards for gluten free so there is definitely a risk of cross contamination.

    Although I clearly ordered the spinach dip off the gluten free menu, I was brought bread with the dip. I really thought I hit the jack pot thinking it was GF bread. Luckily before taking a bite I did check with the waitress, who quickly took the plate away, apologizing it was prepared incorrectly. The GF spinach dip comes with carrots and celery which I was then given.

    They have a separate gluten free menu available. It has about 3 different appetizers (edamame, mussels, spinach dip) and 2 salads. They also have a few fish items and steak items available for dinner, as well as a vegetarian risotto. Dessert they have ice cream or a flourless chocolate cake, which the waitress did double check was gluten free. They do not have any gluten free beers though!
