Loved the gf pancake; it’s huge btw. A lot of stuff can be made gluten free with the simple substitute of a gluten free bun as well as they can cake the chicken fried chicken, chicken fried steak, and onion rings with a separate batter in a separate fryer. I had the eggs Benedict as well and while there was to much bread for the over all portion (I just cut it away) using a hamburger bun (instead of the traditional English muffin) it was still really good.

I had breakfast here and was really impressed. Most restaurants idea of GF. Is to remove the offending portion and, wallah, it’s GF. Not here. Buckwheat pancakes are amazing, and don’t even need syrup they are so tasty and not over sweet. All fried items can have rice batter. The only problem is they don’t have a deducted fryer. And for dessert (I took it home for later). The candied pecan crusted chocolate pie if GF and amazing!!!!! Our waiter, Ryan, was very knowledgeable regarding gluten issues. I will return for chicken fried steak!!!!!!

Was so excited to find this place with great reviews. However, we went last Sunday. Before waiting 35 minutes for a table, I was able ask a manager if they had a dedicated fryer for gluten free. He said they did NOT. All GF items are fried with non GF items. Also, they do not have a separate prep area for GF foods. He said they could prep our food in a clean skillet. I was Not going to risk it. My daughter and I both have Celiac. The one star represents gluten safety, we did not eat here.

They have some standard options (like salads, eggs, bacon, GF buns for burgers, and a buckwheat pancake) and a nice chocolate pie for dessert. They offer GF fried items, but they are all fried in a shared fryer. No GF menu, but the servers are helpful and knowledgeable.

Delicious gf onion rings and fried shrimp! Friendly waiter who knew the answers to my gf questions. The chocolate pie was worth the 3 hour drive.

Fried chicken sandwich. Need I say more??? Best meal I have had in years! Truly an amazing spot and such a cute quaint little town! Also you can have an open container as you walk around downtown! Food and service is seriously AMAZING!

Not Celiac Friendly! I have mixed feelings because the food is so good, and if you are not sensitive it might be ok. I have eaten here 4 times and gotten sick three times! This morning was the first time I have tried it in months, I based it on the good reviews on here, but I shouldn't have.

I had GF Buckwheat pancakes and my wife had GF Chicken Fried Steak, both were excellent, but now I'm paying for it.

They make a great effort at GF offerings but it doesn't seem that they are concerned with cross-contamination.

If you eat GF for lifestyle, enjoy! If you are Celiac, avoid.

A little bit of an issue with a new waiter, but otherwise this place is lovely. Pretty much everything on the menu can be made gf. They can fry anything gf (I was really excited that somewhere not all the way downtown has gf chicken strips!), have gf buns, and have gf pancakes. They also have an amazing chocolate pie with a pecan crust. I highly recommend this place. However, they did explain that they didn't have a dedicated kitchen area so it isn't recommended for celiac's or anyone with extreme sensitivities.

We found this place on our way to austin. Our waiter knew exactly what was safe. Fried pickles were great and the manager personally came to our table explaining that the fried feta was not safe since they make it ahead of time. Both hamburger and migas were excellent. definitely going back.

We LOVE this place. It is one of the reasons we fell in love with Georgetown when we were house hunting! My father can order anything he wants here, and be comfortable that he is eating Gluten Free. The staff is very friendly! Our favorite thing is the fruit salad - especially in the summer! We love the little store in the back too!

No GF menu, but servers are very knowledgeable about food ingredients and can make any needed substitutions. If you have questions, the servers will find an answer. Professional management ensures that kitchen is very well run. Garden in back where produce is grown. They also sponsor a farmers market on-site.
