Many items are gf. Tell them you have an allergy and they change their gloves and prepare your food in a dedicated area. A lot of food for the price- great value. Wonderful service. Highly recommend!

Awesome! Over half their menu is gluten free. I got the bacon deluxe cheeseburger on a gluten free bun (which was actually good, not like some gf buns lol), the Parmesan and sweet potato fries, and a hard cider to drink that was canned. I also got a flourless chocolate cake with vanilla mousse for dessert. Would definitely recommend!

Not only delicious, but they have lots of gf options (celiac friendly) like beer-battered onion rings and fish.
Fish and Chips...so big
Chocolate Cake
Onion rings...started eating those too
Hamburger...I couldn’t wait I started eating.
Amazing lunch! BEST sandwich/burger I’ve ever had. I got the turkey club and it was to die for. Very accommodating for Celiacs!!!!

They specialize in bourbon, beer and burgers. I went for the burger. I had the cheese bacon deluxe on gf bread. I was worried because the bun was toasted but there was no issue and it was a great bun. I also had the tater tots (dedicated fryer) and they were good as well.

We ate here for lunch today in DC. Based on the reviews I expected this place to be amazing. It almost lived up to my expectations. I had a Porker burger (GF) and my wife had the Tavern (not GF). I also ordered the Jalapeño Poppers, Onion Rings, and my wife got the fries. The Poppers were wonderful, fries were great, and burgers were amazing. The O-rings were just ok. My stomach usually hurts from eating beef but not from lunch today. We’ll be back and can’t wait to try some other items here. I’d recommend it to anyone who asked.

Came here twice with our celiac kids. Food is fine. Kids liked that they could get chx fingers. Only 4 stars as both times we visited they messed up our orders. Nothing major but not 5 star worthy.

I had a great experience! I asked to speak to the manager upon arriving and she was very accomodating and answered all of my questions as I also have a peanut and treenut allergy. She even took pictures of the ingredients of the breading they use and the gf buns (Udi's)! Server was also made aware of my allergies and was very accomodating. Dedicated fryer for fries, gf onion rings, and gf chicken fingers. All delicious! Majority of menu items are gluten free. They use rice flour for all of their fried items. Burger was amazing and cooked in a separate place to ensure that cross contamination did not occur. Udi's bun was toasted in dedicated toaster and did not fall apart! I can tell they were very careful while making my appetizer of chicken fingers and my meal of a cheeseburger and fries. If you are in DC, I definitely recommend you try this place. Will be returning my next visit to DC.

Several GF options. I had jalapeño poppers appetizer which was great, very spicy!! Had cheeseburger with GF bun, bun was lovely looking and tasted fine but as with many GF buns just doesn’t hold up to lettuce, pickles etc and fell apart quickly. Next time I’ll just do lettuce wrap burger. Their fries are GF, yumm!!

Celiac safe! My daughter has celiac and I don’t but I happened to also order a gluten free meal and when I asked if my daughter could taste mine the waitress said that probably not as she hadn’t noted that mine should be celiac safe and she couldn’t guarantee that whoever prepared my meal would have changed gloves for my meal. Love it!!!! Bonus-the food was delicious!!!!!

Staff was knowledgeable & friendly, said they often did gluten free foods. I had a turkey club burger & sweet potato fries. I believe the burger was on an Udi’s bun. I came back & had fish & chips, fish tested safe with Nima! Amazing food & I did not get sick either time :)

DO NOT EAT HERE if you are a celiac. My wife ordered a gf salad and it came with bread on it. When we informed the waitress that bread is gluten and that my wife could not have it, the waitress offered to remove the bread. When I mention that my wife was very sensitive and had been in the hospital twice for small bowl obstructions (requiring emergency surgery) the waitress was unapologetic. They finally brought a “new” Salad and 2 hours later the symptoms began and kept my wife in pain for 5 days. Who are the people giving this place 5 stars???

While the food did not make me sick, I sat at the bar and the bartender made my experience really negative and embarrassing, making me doubt the safety of the food I’d ordered due to her ignorance of the disease and refusal to listen to my concerns.

This place is the bomb, if you are visiting or plan to visit DC definitely check this place out. It has a relatively central location with good atmosphere and incredibly knowledgeable and friendly waiters. The food was great (and reasonably priced). Would recommend a burger for sure but there’s also tons of other gluten free stuff which is marked in the menu. Definitely a must!!!

Holy Heavens!!!! It is so good, we came here twice in two days. I had the gluten free fish and chips the first day. I kept asking if they were sure it was gluten free because it was so good. Then the next day I had the Tavern burger on the gluten free bun with onion rings. I could have cried over the onion rings. I haven’t had onion rings in soooooooo long. It tasted so good I was so nervous that it couldn’t really be that gluten free but I never got sick and I am really sensitive. Also, the first night we had the gluten free chocolate cake....it was delish 😍

Absolutely amazing... They gave me the options and ensured me they have separate fryer and gluten free bread, I ordered Bacon cheese burger and tested it with Nima and came without gluten... My boyfriend tried a piece of my hamburger who is not celiac and said that my burger tasted better than his... So, I was very happy eating something rather than a salad 😊

Fried food for the first time in years! Waitress assured me that all the fryers are dedicated GF because they only use rice flour as a coating.

Yummy options, including rare treats for a Celiac! I had a hamburger and fries for the first time in a very long time! They said their fryers are dedicated GF. The staff was nice. Since I ordered to go, the kitchen bill was attached to my order. In capitalized letters at the top was CELIAC, along with Gluten Allergy in red and gluten free in capital letters as part of my order. As a Celiac, I am grateful for this attention to detail and precaution. I’ll definitely be going again!

They do a great job of taking special care and they actually want to be accommodating. Only downside is my son also can’t eat dairy and they use dairy in all their breaded foods which share the same fryer for fries. So he had a burger with a side salad. That was too bad. But all in all, a lot of choices. Especially if dairy is not an issue for you.

Unfortunately, not all food that is labeled GF is actually GF. Beware of the wings. My sister wasn't notified until after she ate some of them that they weren't GF. Even though both the hostess and waitress were informed of three of the party having celiac. Needless to say, my sister spent the remainder of her birthday extremely uncomfortable and sick to her stomach. Beyond that, the food was good. Fried foods are made with rice flour which is why there are a lot of GF options.

GF friendly, but dairy-free folks note that the onion rings are made with buttermilk. (Sigh) Noisy, so if you want to converse, sit in the section under the low roof. Also beware of the nighttime highway repair this year (2018-19) and take alternate routes after 9 p.m.

I’m celiac and have eaten here safely many times. I get a simple tavern burger (no sauce) in the grass with fries, so I can’t speak to the quality of gf buns but I am confident they are careful about cross contact. The food is heavy pub food so I have to be careful not to overdo it, but it’s very good for what it is. It’s one of the few places in the area where I feel safe eating.
