This place is phenomenal! I went with other recommendations and we got the coconut shrimp along with fish & chips. Everything was delicious! Very light texture on the fried items. Highly recommend!

tl;dr: Good food, but the particular person who took my order was not knowledgeable about celiac disease, and I almost got glutened. (The onion rings are *not* gluten-free.)

I ordered takeout, and got the western barbecue burger. I asked while ordering if I needed to leave off the fried onions, and the person on the phone said the kitchen would know whether or not to leave them off. (This is where I messed up, I should have just said to leave them off, but the good reviews gave me a false sense of complacency.) I drove home to find out that the burger had onion rings on it and called again to ask and confirmed that they were not GF. I had to drive back to swap my burger for a safe one. The food was good, but I was surprised given the good reviews that the person answering the phone wasn’t more knowledgeable.

Excellent wait staff that is very on top of making sure everything was gluten free. The GF coconut shrimp was beyond delicious. The owner even came out to ensure me that it was all cooked appropriately. Then made sure to point out that my wife’s meal was not gluten free which we knew, but the level of detail and attention they went to was top notch. I have high confidence in Northside Tavern.

I was recent diagnosed with celiac and I wanted something deep fried so bad!! This was the first restaurant I ate at since my diagnosis and I had no reaction to the food after. The fish and chips were amazing and the server made sure the kitchen knew I had celiac. I can’t wait to go back and try their chicken wings!

We had an amazing experience. My celiac husband was able to eat some fried favorites—fish and chips and they were REALLY good. They have GF beer (not gluten removed). The food was amazing, the service was amazing.

Wow!! This place is amazing. I did not have any reaction to the GF coconut shrimp and fish and chips. Make sure to specify you’re celiac so they can make sure to take caution for fryers.

Cross contamination didn't seem to be taken seriously. If you come before dinner you have VERY few options. Sure enough I'm sick the next morning. Suggest you skip this spot for lunch.

Had an excellent experience. I recommend you let your server know that you are celiac. I was informed that there is a separate fryer as well as a separate cook top for gluten free orders. I had the shrimp, wedge salad and the fish fry basket and everything was delicious. I’m a sensitive celiac and had no issues. Looking forward to visiting regularly.

Ate here with my celiac wife and hyper-sensitive celiac daughter. Both had the fish and chips and the chocolate raspberry tart. Both items were excellent, but you do need to identify yourself as celiac, because they have two separate fryers. Neither had any reaction.

Holy guacamole this place kicks! The waitstaff was beyond friendly. Pam treated us like family. She was very informative on what was Gluten Free. This place blows federal bar and grill out of the water for selection and also from a pricing stand point. We had the fried pickles, queso dip with carnitas, and the fish & chips. Everything was crispy and cooked to perfection! They also have a full holidaily menu and a cider on tap. Can’t wait to return!

We eat here all the time, and my son with Celiac has never gotten sick. Everything GF is clearly marked on the menu and they do a great job of avoiding cross-contamination. Also, almost all breaded items are made with rice flour, so the fried pickles, for example, are GF, and are amazing. Highly recommended.

I'm posting this as a warning that the last time I ate here I got sick from my food (fish and chips). I have eaten here a few times before and not had any issues, but there was definitely gluten in my food this last time. I told the server I had celiac, ordered something specifically listed as gf on the menu, and asked them to take extra precautions with my food.

Got served a regular bun while on my first day of vacation here. Had to go throw it up in the bathroom. Staff was very sorry for their mistake, but that should NOT have happened. Everything I and my friend ordered was gluten free. Anyways I would say it was a one time happening but I am too scared to return. The gluten free fried pickles and fries are great.

What a nice neighborhood find! This location had been empty for about 2 years, they did an excellent job on the remodel, it has a warm and friendly family atmosphere on a Sunday afternoon. I had the French dip, it was delicious, but the service was really slow and the food was barely warm when we finally got our order. I will definitely give them another try.
