    Don't let the simple space fool you...the food was delicious. They have dedicated gluten-free kitchen space, fryer, and even dedicated dishes and utinsels. Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten-free. I had the California wrap and home chips my husband had the Reuben both delicious. The table nexr ti us was raving about the Asian chicken tacos. We didn't have room to try the gf desserts.

    Fantastic - the service is 5 star as is the food. We had several of the burgers, the Reuben and the Cuban sandwiches. It’s a true Cuban sandwich. They make their own breads (wonderful) and desserts. We ordered the gf Heath cheesecake (they use boarshead cheese) and the gf peach cobbler. Both were out of this world. As was the service. This is a definite stop whether your celiac,gluten intolerant or not. Can’t wait to go back :)

    Amazing! Best Ciliac friendly place I have been to in a long time! Almost everything on the menu I was able to eat. Dedicated fryer. Bread was great quality, not too moist or too crumbly. Cheesecake was the best I've had in years. Will definitely be back and will certainly recommend to others.

    We visit this restaurant every time we are in town. Tried to go for dinner but they had just changed hours. Went the next day for lunch and had a wonderful Philly cheesesteak on their home made bread. It was delicious! Took home a slice of key lime cheesecake that was perfect.

    This place is FANTASTIC. I read the reviews for it on here when researching our vacation to the area. I’m so glad we tried it. It’s a small restaurant in a strip mall. Don’t let that deter you! We have never had such caring, attentive and knowledgeable service in a restaurant. My daughter has celiac and vacationing can be a challenge with gluten free dining, but she was treated like a queen and had the most delicious meals. We all LOVED our food. We loved it so much we went for dinner two nights in a row! Burgers, Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, fish tacos, pasta Alfredo, Cuban sandwich, all so good, and the FRIES! We love this place!!!

    The staff was EXTREMELY knowledgeable and the GF menu is extensive and great! Don’t let the strip-mall exterior scare you off! Dedicated fryer, nice selection of sandwiches, soups, and main dish meals. Homemade bread. Chocolate lava cake, fried cheesecake...all gluten free. I wish we were local and could come back more often.

    When I told waiter I was GF, he genuinely said “oh good! We pride ourselves in being able to serve the community in this way.” Had mahi tacos on corn tortillas with side slaw salad. Tasty. Would definitely come back if in area knowing they are committed to serving our needs. Has sign on front door requesting no outside food be brought in due to being a GF friendly business. LOVED THAT!

    I do not recommend this place for breakfast. First, it doesn’t open until 10, so obviously not their strong point. They were out of GF toast for my husband, but his egg scramble was good. I ordered scrambled eggs and got an omelet. The egg was paper thin, but the veggies were good. My muffin was mushy and the strawberry jelly tasted rancid. The chips (which are strange to serve with breakfast) were burnt tasting.

    As a Celiac, it can be difficult to travel and find safe, gluten-free options. But when I discovered Mi Island on FMGF, it took away all worries! The owners were so kind, the food was totally safe and incredibly delicious! I have other food allergies as well and they were so accommodating and amazing! Highly recommend getting anything with the house-made peanut sauce, it’s delicious!

    Great find!!! Food was good all around and they took gluten free very seriously (wouldn't even bring it out at the same time with non-GF orders). They even had multiple GF bread options! Staff was very friendly and passionate about their food and business and we now plan to come back whenever we're in the area.

    Fried cheesecake was delicious. Only a few things on menu were not gluten free. Asian kale salad was good. The margaritas tasted different and they explained they don’t have full liquor license so it was made with wine.

    this quaint little restaurant is definitely a good find for gluten free. They make GF bread and baked goods, YES you can have dessert :-) Most menu items are gluten free. Sandwiches, burgers and fries, salads, wraps, entree's, and dessert. The service is excellent and the owners and servers are very accommodating to gluten free. There is a separate prep area.

    Great food. Tons of options. I had the cheeseburger and fries on toasted Italian bread. They have 4 kinds of bread. All desserts but one were gf. We had chocolate lava cake, a triple chocolate cake, and deep fried cc cheesecake. The server and the chef are very knowledgeable about gf and were helpful and friendly. Great place if gluten free!

    Wow! Just wow. All of the food was delicious, and incredible gluten free options. You know a place is doing it right when they specifically list what ISN'T gluten free. Chef Rick came out and personally delivered all the GF food, acknowledging it was prepared separately. All but one of the desserts are GF, and just about every entree had GF options. Personal touch here. It felt like we were dining with friends.

    Very delicious food i had the Philly cheese steak sandwich and the following day had the Asian chicken tacos both dishes were very tasty and decent size portions I especially liked the Asian kale salad with peanut dressing. The best part of this place is that the staff is very knowledgeable when it comes to gluten free dishes and cross contamination the gluten free dishes are served on different plates and their prices are very affordable.

    The only bad thing about this restaurant is that it's 4 states away from me... Ended up here after a doctor's appt we traveled to MI for. Kept my expectations low. WOW. We got there 15 minutes before closing time but they could not have been nicer and insisted we stay to eat there. The food was delicious and obviously prepared with much love. Even if you don't have to avoid gluten, you should just go eat here. I had apple crisp for dessert, but could have had brownies. I've certainly never had a choice for a gf/df dessert at a restaurant before - usually it's just not an option at all. We all loved it and can't wait to get back.

    Fantastic family owned restaurant! They had so many gluten free options for kids and adults. They have a separate gluten free cooking area to avoid cross contamination and a separate fryer. Our 5 year old had GF chicken nuggets and French fries and loved it. Our other kids ordered burgers and fries...burgers were huge and the best French fries. Everything is made in house including GF desserts and 8 kinds of GF breads. Adults ordered the BBQ bacon cheeseburger GF with the kale salad and Mahi Tacos GF with fries...all of it delicious! We'll be coming back!

    Absolutely amazing. Small family owned business that truly cares about their customers. Most of the entres can be prepared gluten free. It's so rare in our area to walk in to a restaraunt and be able to order an entire menu of gluten free desserts. Try the deep fried chocolate cheesecake!
