    Made sure to order the GF BBQ chicken was supposed to come without the cornbread croutons. Well it didn't!! Actually the waitress gave me a look even when I specified gf. As I'm not as sensitive as some, I just picked the croutons out. HUGE MISTAKE!!! I should have just sent it back because here I am 2 days later and miserable. Waitress was awful too. Never asked anyone for drink refills and didn't get 2 sides of fries. But she was sure to add her 18% gratuity on. Will NEVER go back!!!

    Bartender told us the owner has someone in his family that is GF. Dedicated fryer. GF buns. The nachos on the app menu are enough for a meal

    They don't understand cross contamination at all. Avoid if you can, not worth the risk

    I don't think they truly understand GF here. I ordered a GF meal as listed on their menu and the veggies came covered in breadcrumbs. Have not had good experiences eating GF here!

    My wife is allergic to gluten, soy, lactose and she's a life-long vegetarian. We eat here periodically when in the area. They always have a GF beer in stock and the chef is always willing to tweak a recipe to accommodate her allergies. I think the also keep rolls on hand in case you wanted one of their sandwiches On top of this, the food is amazing and reasonable priced.

    One of the worst places for a celiac. They don't take GF SERIOUSLY. I chose a gluten free burger with a gluten free bun. One bite into the juices burger I realized the bun could not be GLUTEN FREE as the taste and texture was definitely wheat. After waiting 10 minutes for the waitress to return I asked if the bun was truly GF, she replied "oh no I forgot to push the GF bun option on the order". She only offered to remove the bun and did not offer to make another burger. I could not eat the cross contaminated burger and they did not even offer to remove the charge on my Check. I will never return to a place that doesn't take GF as a serious matter. No apologies. No tip! NEVER AGAIN!

    I thought the menu had a great selection of gluten free options. I got the chili cheese nachos which were very good and very filling. Also got the sweet potato fries. Gluten free buns were available for sandwiches and burgers. Felt fine the rest of the day so I feel fairly confident I didn't accidentally get glutened.

    the food was good, but I'm pretty sure I got glutened. came home from eating (noticed another review said fries aren't gf, marked on the menu as gf so I ordered them) and have an upset stomach and nausea. wouldn't recommend for Celiacs like myself or super sensitive people.

    Waitress tried but failed miserably. She must not have written gluten free on order bc mashed potatoes came with gravy UNDER them! We discussed my son having celiac and needing gluten free at great length prior.

    I had lunch here this past Monday with my parents and everyone really enjoyed their meals. I always get nervous when a server relies on memory to take the order instead of writing it down, but the young woman didn't get anything wrong. They had real-sized gluten free buns for the burgers and their regular and sweet potato fries are gluten free. Everyone there was very welcoming and we agreed that it would be a regular place for our family to congregate. They have a 'rewards' program for frequent patrons. My parents decided to sign up right after my dad saw the craft beers (not gf) they had on tap. I don't drink beer, so I don't know if the carry any gf beers, but they do have a full bar.

    Mixed thoughts- wings were very good. The menu did have gluten free symbols but not for the sides. None of the soups were GF, the GF bun was not good. My sandwich and my friend's wrap looked great but had no flavor- I had the Reuben and she had apple walnut chicken salad wrap. Wouldn't go back.
