AMAZING! My husband and I ordered out and I put on my order celiac just to give them a heads up since I did order a salad and a couple items that could come in contact with gluten. They went above and beyond! They not only made sure that nothing with gluten was on or near my food, they packed my items in one bag and marked it with an allergy note and then packed my husbands items separately and when they brought out our food they even double checked that everything was okay that was in the bag!

They offer the basic, already gluten free, items: salads, baked potatoes and meat. Food was good, but nothing really wowed me.

There’s a gluten free brownie. Our server also warned that the cheese and cinnamon is not technically gluten free.

Great Gf menu, waitress seemed very knowledgeable about Celiac. Had GF appetizer, meal, and dessert; all were delicious. My only issue was leaving with an overfull belly.

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.

I informed my server I am gluten sensitive and allergic to fresh and shellfish. I had called the night before to verify the gluten free menu and decided what to order. I had house salad with ranch dressing, baked potato and well done sirlion steak. The food and service was great. I could tell my salad was just made. My server checked back to make sure my order was correct.
