Review


I emailed Medieval Times before the show and they assured me they could accommodate Celiac. Before the show, our waitress asked about allergies and I told her I had Celiac and could not have cross contamination. The waitress then put garlic bread on my plate and was confused why she couldn’t just take the bread off my plate and I could reuse it. She brought out veggies and hummus for me as a sub for garlic bread, but on the same tray as the garlic bread, dropped the veggies on the bread and then picked up and out them on my plate. Definitely cross contaminated!

Upon arrival they ask if any allergies. For gluten free you get a card which you give to your server after you are seated. The soup is already gluten free. Instead of garlic bread you get humus and carrot and celery sticks. The chicken, corn and potatoes are already gluten free. Instead of the regular desert you get a bowl of fruit, melons and pineapple. Very filling and tasted great.

We went to Medeival Times a few nights ago and had such a great time! I was a bit paranoid about eating here because I'm so sensitive to cross contamination, but they were very diligent and I felt confident with my meal. I am allergic to dairy as well as being celiac, so I was afraid there would be nothing I could enjoy. However, before the show, I was able to enjoy a pina colata slushie. For dinner, I had the tomato bisque soup, which was vegan and really tasty! I had the chicken, the potato, and "naked" corn (no butter.) For dessert, they served a bowl of fresh fruit. They brought out the specific allergy items separately. It was so great to feel like I was part of the crowd and know that my meal was safe. And our Blue Knight won!

I called a few days in advance with reservation number to let them know I could not eat gluten. I then told my server upon arriving at the table. It was no problem. I was not able to eat the garlic bread, but was given the option of extra potato or corn. The desert for everyone else was a pastry, but I was brought fruit. The fruit was good. It was a good experience.

The food was surprisingly good. Gf and df-- they gave us tomato soup, chicken, potato, corn with margarine, and for dessert they substituted the pastry with a big bowl of cut fruit. They also allowed us to bring in our own gf cupcakes and they served them when the others in our party got dessert. She brought our items out on a separate tray than the other dessert. The waitress said she changed the tongs between serving the bread etc. I didn't get sick, I have celiac and am very sensitive.

They do a great job accommodating GF. You just tell your waiter when you sit down. My family loves Medieval Times.

I was very happy to be able to attend my brother’s birthday party at Medieval Times last evening. The gluten and dairy free food items were good. Tomato soup, celery/carrots with hummus to replace garlic bread. Then the same meal as everyone else, just served first in its own plate. Dessert was Italian ice.

They were very knowledgeable on allergies. They didn’t have alternative options for an appetizer which was garlic bread but the rest of the meal was all gluten free. The dessert option was a doughnut but they offered either fresh fruit or Italian ice for a gluten free substitute.

I went fully not expecting to eat. My husband mentioned that I had celiac and the waitstaff jumped into action! They brought things for me that were all gluten free and even brought it out separately from the other food as to not cross contaminate. I never got sick! I was pleasantly surprised!
