Limited options so I stuck with the one I felt was safest, a polenta vegetable melt. It was delicious and I had no issues.

Server was great and assured me she had buttons in the POS to mark it as a gluten allergy.

When asked about the fryer, the server knew it was a shared fryer. She didn’t have to go to the kitchen to find out.

Not too many options. But have had their Cobb salad, pulled pork, and burger on a gluten free bun with no reaction. Shared fryer. Crème brûlée is very good!

Not much to order off the gluten free menu so I got a burger. Bland and tasteless. My salad came out with croutons. So it made me doubt i How actual careful they really were. The salad was a replacement instead of having fries since they are cross contaminated and so was my salad. Just not knowledgeable staff.

I have celiac and we ate dinner there. Jacquelyn was our server and was very knowledgeable. They have a grassy garden out back with lights and umbrella tables. GF items are marked on the menu. I got the steak tip nachos (the chips are truly GF, not fried on site), the veggie polenta melt and the chocolate mousse for dessert. Great experience and would definitely return.

My favorite restaurant in the area! Lots of gluten free options including buns for burgers/pulled pork. The owners and wait staff are terrific and truly care about your experience. Out of anywhere in the area I definitely recommend this place! Outdoor seating in the summer too!

I ordered spinach artichoke dip with corn chips which had a GF which per menu meant gluten free. The waitress came back and said the dip is gluten free but not corn chips. I asked why was it denoted Gf? She had no idea. That may be suspicious that maybe they are clueless. I ordered the Shepard pie thinking safe since had Gf and was assured it was. It seems they should really make sure their menu is correct.

If a restaurant is going to specify GF options they should research it. Frying the corn chips in a non-dedicated frying means it is no longer GF and therefor cancels many options on the menu. It also makes me wary of anything else I might order that is labeled GF.

I have celiac and there were plenty of options for me. Sheperd's Pie was really good. Never had any issues 'post-meal'....so that's good.

They now note GF items on their menu. Still in their infancy but they have a decent selection of GF starters, salads and entrees. Wait staff was very knowledgeable.
