I was informed several weekends ago that they DO NOT have a dedicated GF fryer anymore, however the menu notations indicating GF have not been updated.

Almost everything on the menu is gluten free or has the option to be made gluten free. We had a party of 10 for my wife’s birthday (celiac) and were able to order a bunch of shareable apps and entrees that she was able to enjoy! I don’t know how this place isn’t already on Find Me GF, but it’s a gem! Lots of fun activities there too, and family friendly (although they do turn 21+ after 10pm).

Ordered the nachos which are “gluten free friendly” but definitely not safe for celiacs. Delicious, but toxic. Don’t get glutened here folks.

I called to ask if they had a dedicated GF fryer which I had read they did. The man I spoke to on the phone said yes they did. We showed up. An EXTREMELY LIMITED menu. A few sandwiches, etc. The grilled chicken sandwich didn’t have a GFA next to it, and the waitress said that was bc of the bun, although other sandwiches with buns had GFA next to them. My celiac daughter got a grilled chicken with a GF bun and bacon (which she asked not to have) with green beans. It was ok. My dairy allergic son asked to flag his dairy allergy and asked for his hamburger not to come with cheese, but it came with cheese. Food was subpar. Next time we will eat somewhere else and come for drinks and games. Cleveland location.

I’ve had a hard time knowing if I got sick from here. Yesterday I ordered a GF sandwich & fries. I noticed the fries looked differently & appeared to maybe have some light breading so I called to ask. I was told the chef “didn’t know” if they were gluten free. I went in & spoke with the manager to let her know how reckless it is that the chef doesn’t know when numerous items are marked gluten free. Additionally, we are told they have a dedicated GF deep fryer for GF fries. I explained now they’ve contaminated their fryer. They were very nice, but I don’t feel she understood the severity of it all. I told her that the staff needs to make sure they notify anyone ordering GF items and that the deep fryer would need to be cleaned extensively. Imagine how many people would or may even have gotten sick.

I really wanted to like this place, because it has such a neat concept. Unfortunately, it took over 2 hours for food to come out, and when it did, it was lukewarm like it had sat in the pass for a while. We told them about our allergies (gluten/soy) and so we ordered 2 meals with that caveat (example: no garlic bread). After over 2 hours and the other meals coming out first (and the waitress not remembering who had the allergies and putting the wrong meals in front of people), that third meal came out with the bread sitting on top of it so we obviously couldn't eat it.

The waitress was nice when we saw her, but left us in the dark about the wait on the food, and with such an extreme wait including messing up our order so badly that one person didn't get fed at all, you'd think they would have done something...comp fries during the extra long wait, reduced price, or make sure our drinks were full at the very least. I sat for over an hour and a half just with ice in front of me.
