The food here was really good. I told the waitress I had a gluten allergy and she said the manager would bring out all my food and ensure there was no cross contamination. Started with amazing gluten free rolls! Then had the mustard crusted chicken. Gluten free carrot cake for dessert was the best carrot cake I’ve ever had, let alone gluten free. Didn’t get sick and felt very safe eating everything. They also have gluten free beer (Glutenberg). Be sure to ask for a gluten free menu.

The jambalaya is BOMB but the last few times I had a sandwich, their buns were too small to hold the contents in. Still an excellent option with a great gluten free menu. Their gluten free bread served with olive oil and parmesan to dip is however amazing.

Very good service. They had a separate gluten free menu and were very clear that they didn’t contaminate. The bread was delicious and so was the food.

The waiter brought me warm spongy delicious gluten-free buns and Parmesan dipping sauce - and I was in heaven! That alone was enough - so delicious! Then my hamburger in a gluten-free bun came, and I was so happy to enjoy that rare treat. The staff are very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. They told me the fries are not gluten-free so that was a disappointment - I hope they can change that in future. Overall, it was a wonderful experience! I’ll definitely go back!

Went on Monday for lunch with 6 people including my 5 year old celiac child. Was impressed with the breadth of the GF menu. She was thrilled to have some GF bread. Unfortunately, while she was eating the GF macaroni, I realized there was a curly noodle in the middle of her GF penne. The kitchen said they think a noodle from a regular mac and cheese just accidentally slipped into her dish but I don't see how that is possible if any sort of basic precautions are being made. She woke up in the middle of the night with cramps. We will likely try another location of this chain again due to the broad options but I was pretty disappointed in their safe food handling.

The gluten-free bread was the best i have ever had! I ordered the Tomato basil soup and the gluten-free chicken quesadillas which were absolutely delicious!

I got a carry-out and the pasta was already cold when I got it and the chicken was just a big over-cooked slab. The sauce was really salty and they put the potatoes in the same compartment so it was drowning in salty, lemon sauce.

The food was great, plenty of gluten free options, including dessert. The waitstaff was knowledgeable and very considerate about Celiac. They brought out gluten free bread to start with--it was awesome. My young daughter is the one who has Celiac, so she was disappointed not to see gf fries, but they said they could make some for us in a pan. It was very busy, yet the manager came over and let us know he knew we were eating from the gf menu and they would take it seriously and pay special attention to our food preparation. The combination of their attention to gf needs and delicious food means we will definitely be back!

YOU GUYS. This place is unreal. Fresh, delicious bread, ridiculously good food, and even a dessert option or two. I was so grateful to have such an amazing meal I was nearly in tears. And they were VERY careful, even announcing with my entree, "no gluten has been near this dish." Can't wait to come back.

I ordered Mustard Crusted Chicken off of the gluten free menu and a gluten free beer. They brought my gluten free meal out first before any others.

As soon as I mentioned a gluten allergy, I was provided a “gluten sensitive” menu and served gluten free rolls! I was wary of the *sensitive* phrasing, but the waitstaff seemed to take celiac very seriously and mentioned a dedicated preparation space. The chicken parm was delicious.
