    Went there for Mother's Day with my Family. I told them I had celiac and waitress was on top of it, she informed manager and cook staff. I asked for gluten-free bread and within minutes, a different server came over and put bread on the table stating "here is your gluten-free bread". It was regular bread....... waitress and Manager both apologized but that doesn't fix the problem ......will never go back. Besides all that, Service was awful!

    Very good! The server asked as soon as we sat down if there were any food allergies. She informed us about a gluten free menu. Lots of options! We got a ton of gluten free bread that was bomb.com! So soft and fluffy!

    I went to the Kentland's location of Not Your Average Joe's and fell in love! They not only have a gluten free menu, but they also bring out a GF bread basket when you first sit down with this amazing garlic butter dip. I ordered the gluten free cheeseburger and asked if I could have french fries with it. It's not on their menu, but they offered to bake the french fries for me so as to not fry them and contaminate them in any way. It took longer and they weren't ask crispy, but I enjoyed them! Their food is amazing and you also get a free meal and dessert for your birthday if you sign up for their members club email. It's now my favorite restaurant!

    Great place, but can get very busy at times especially on weekends. They have a pretty large gluten free menu. They will also bring out dipping sauce with gluten free bread.

    Every time we eat here they manage to screw up our order. I know it's hard to be picky but if you're going to bother with it, at least eat there rather than get takeout; you may end up waiting a half an hour but at least they can fix their mistake if they make one (they will). Whether or not the new dish is any good is a crap shoot.

    I wish I had a gluten tester like the other reviewer, because after eating here I ended up becoming VERY ILL for a long time and the only thing I could think of was they must've fed me straight up gluten. Yes, the way they behave in the front of house make you feel safe, and the gf selection is huge, but whatever is actually going on in the kitchen is NOT safe for Celiacs in my opinion. I don't think I've ever been sicker in my entire life like I was after eating here. I struggled with writing this review, but I feel like reviews like this are important because places like this are why I never eat out anymore.

    I'm so sorry but I'm going to have to give this rating. The menu looked great; huge gf. The food looked good. The staff was amazing. Chef and 2 managers talked to us. First dish came back with gluten after testing with Nima. 5/6 of us had already eaten. Tested next 5 dishes. All had some gluten (one was high). Tested this later with EZ gluten strips. Same result. May be from airborne flour. They are trying very hard and want to do this right but something went wrong. 4 of us had small reactions the next day but were minimum bc we only ate one thing. Could have been worse.

When we sat down, the waiter noticed the gluten free menu and asked if I had an allergy and explained that they clean the kitchen station and use clean utensils to cook the gluten free items. All of the staff was extremely friendly and personable. The manager, Will, was a very nice gentleman and made sure that we were happy with our food.

    My wife and I went there for lunch. My wife has Celiac and it is often very difficult to dine out on Cape Cod for that reason. This place was great, starting with a dedicated Gluten free menu. There are many excellent choices. The waitress, nothing that my wife had the gluten free menu asked if we wanted bread and informed my wife that they had gluten free roll if she would like that. Two different servers brought the bread and roll to the table with different shaped dishes containing their dipping sauce so as to avoid cross contamination. The same routine was followed when presenting the entrees. They definitely pay attention and the food was great. Bravo for the attention to detail.
