The entire experience was wonderful. My husband and I went here for dinner for my birthday. They had several seltzer and seasonal cider options as well as GF cocktails. The waiter (Nate) was exceptionally knowledgeable about what specific ingredients were included / not included when ordering something that could be prepared gluten free. Both are meals were delicious. We were offered their gluten free flourless chocolate cake as dessert and a well loved item, as it’s GF. It was to die for. I’m super sensitive to cross contamination and had no side effects from eating here. We will definitely be back to try again! Highly recommend!

We ordered the Thai lettuce wraps, Buffalo wings, and the mussels and fries. All were amazing. The lettuce wraps were fresh, the wings perfectly spiced, and the mussels perfectly cooked. The waiter was attentive without being overbearing. It will be my new go to restaurant in Bristol!

I had their chicken pesto with their gf bun and fries. No issue at all. Very tasty too. I ordered a Caesar salad with chicken to go, but although I asked for gf, they put croutons on it so I checked and asked them to change it, which they did and I had no issues with that one either. I definitely recommend this place but always always always double check the food is gf when they bring it for you regardless of where you go, unless it’s a dedicated facility.

Have eaten here probably 15 times in the last year. I have gotten nearly everything on their menu that is gluten free, I have never once gotten sick or felt worried by what I ordered. Probably the safest option in Bristol for the variety.
