ordered from the gluten-free menu (filet mignon & lobster, a house salad w/ no croutons and mashed potatoes). house salad came with crouton crumbs on it. when i asked a waiter if they could fix it for me and i pointed out the crumbs and how it looked like the croutons were put on and taken off, they tried telling me that the workers change their gloves every salad and that they "didn't do that", but they brought a new one anyway. the owner even came over and said the same thing. did not feel safe at all eating here. the lobster was really good but i was pretty upset with the salad experience.

Do not come here if you’re celiac. I went with my boyfriend and told them I had a gluten allergy and they served my shrimp on a piece of bread. Ended up extremely sick that night.

I had an amazing gluten free dinner there. There was a separate menu for gluten free meals. My family and I all ordered from there menu with plenty of options. Our server was very kind and made sure our food was how we needed it. They even had a gluten free brownie dessert. Overall, this experience was a stress reliever for someone who was just diagnosed as celiac.

Came for late dinner to-go. No issues! Just stick with simple stuff like steak and potatoes and you’ll be fine. It is a chain though, so I’m not sure how safe everything is. Felt fine after.

Staff was AMAZING and menu is pretty extensive for being GF in this area. I ordered from the GF menu and my husband did not. After putting the order in, our waitress came back to talk to me because my husband ordered food that was not GF and she wanted to be sure that I knew what could make me sick. Can't wait to go back!

Dedicated gluten free menu has lots of options. Just ask the hostess for it. They even have a hot gluten free brownie a la mode for dessert! Management is always happy to answer any questions.

Eaten here multiple times and have gotten sick every time. Despite only getting steak and potatoes/steamed vegetables and or the ribs. Oh and the GF dessert which I think is one of only 2 desserts on the menu is quite good but I’m just listing off the things that should’ve been at least RELATIVELY safe. Management quite literally just doesn’t care either. Save your money and go to the Texas Roadhouse across the street it’s around the same price but much better value and they actually care, even to the point where they will insist to take the food back if it’s not to your liking.

Has a separate printed GF menu if you ask for it. Most of the full menu is on there including steak, seafood, and most of the sides. I ordered the salmon with a sweet potato and broccoli.
