I was really cautious about eating here, but it turned out great! Our waitress was very knowledgeable and talked to the kitchen to let them know I was a Celiac. I had a half of the BBQ chicken sandwich and the creamy slaw. Both were excellent and as a pepper lover, the spicy slaw was a real treat! They had a large, separate gluten free menu.

While it’s great that they offer gluten free bread and all, I had an awful experience here. When informing the waitress of my gluten allergy she asks me if I only have an allergy Or if I’m actually celiac, as they “really only take those precautions for those with celiac” because apparently unless you have that you deserve to feel sick. I then asked her if they had some sort of gluten free menu or allergen guide. She tells me that they do not, that they have gluten free bread, and that I should “be able to tell what is gluten free by reading the description on the menu.” While I could obviously guess that the Mac and cheese grilled sandwich would not be gluten free with just a change of bread, that did not mean that I would know if anything else on their menu was actually gluten free. I was so upset and frustrated to find something to eat I just decided to leave, but not without her coming up again and saying “awww, could you not find anything to eat??” Yeah.. with no help from you.

The gluten free bread was actually really good. However there are only a couple of options on the menu that don't include breaded items. Though the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable.

My sandwich on gluten-free bread was delicious and worth the $2 up charge. However, I didn't get a gluten-free menu, but I did review their allergen guide. The guide listed the fries as gluten-free, but from another reviewer I knew to ask..... The waitress clearly knew that they were fried with gluten containing items, so that was good. I personally would like them to update the allergen guide to include noting gluten from the cooking process like frying. Just because the potatoes don't contain gluten doesn't make them safe.

Can put sandwiches on gluten free bread!! They also use separate utensils and cooking space to prevent cc. Only downside is no dedicated gluten free fryer so no fries :(

Dedicated GF menu but cross contamination is still possible. Lots of choices on the menu. Service was a bit slow. I’ve only eaten here once and didn’t get sick.

I’ve eaten here safely about 8-10 times, usually having it for both lunch and dinner when at Cedar Point. It’s very tasty and I definitely enjoy the food and having somewhere to eat safely. They have a gluten free fryer, so I’m able to have fries, which I enjoy. The sandwiches are served as doubles, so you really only need to order a “half” which is actually one full sandwich. Just make sure to double check the hours because during the summer season it closed on the early side and my understanding is that for the fall season it’s only open on Saturdays and Sundays.

I have eaten here twice and had a positive experience both times. I ordered a sandwich and one time had Cole slaw and the second time a house salad. They noted that I was Celiac when ordering and I felt fine after eating. If I returned and felt like I had a server who was new or not as knowledgeable, after these experiences I would ask to speak to a manager because they really do seem to care about serving gluten free food safely. There is a statement at the bottom of their GF menu about precautions they take.

Ordered a Cleveland cheesesteak on gluten free bread and the fries were made in a dedicated fryer. Great experience!

We have had some servers who were knowledgeable about cross-contact precautions and did a great job. On other occasions we have had staff that were not knowledgeable and even after we explained our needs we were served coleslaw with fries from the non-dedicated frier accidentally mixed in.
