Awesome service, fantastic atmosphere, and I still unfortunately had a severe reaction before leaving the restaurant. They take it very seriously I truly think mine was a fluke.

While they have a gluten free bun and pasta, I find the atmosphere more enjoyable than their food.

Very informative staff and grabbed a manger to take my order, had a gluten free pasta option, bread, buns, nachos, tacos, and several other dishes that would work. Manager informed me they have a separate preparation area that was GF as well. They were able to accommodate for almost every dish aside for a few pastas as gluten in the sauces.

The waiter was kind and knowledgeable. He explained the options and noted that a manager or chef could come out and further discuss safe options. They have a special procedure to ensure full safety with separate fryers and cooking space. I ended up getting the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger with the GF bun.

Very limited gluten-free options. Only a pasta dish and a burger with a gluten-free bun. No manager came out. Waiter unsure about the fries.

Great service. They have a separate fryer for fries (for those with gf burgers). I got the Stir Fry and another person in our party got the ribs. Loved it! They also double check and make sure everything is on the pink ticket.

Ate there yesterday with my celiac daughter. Chef came to the table to explain what she could have and wrote it down on a pink ticket so staff would know to take precautions for an allergy. Her options were a GF bun (hamburger), grilled chicken, grilled shrimp, or GF pasta with marinara or butter. She could also do fries, corn, mashed potatoes or fruit as a side. She did the pasta with corn and enjoyed her meal. She did not get sick and we were overall very pleased with the experience.

What others have said is true: a manager will come out with a bright pink slip and go over the menu with you and tell you what’s safe and what isn’t and write it all out for you and deliver your food. It was so relaxing, and I loved it. But then they brought me my plate of gluten free pasta, served with a very gluten-filled piece of bread right on the rim of the plate. Ugh. Fortunately, I’m not that sensitive to CC so I just removed it and ate what I could. I would have totally given 5 stars otherwise though! They have dedicated fryers and prep space for allergens.

I had the same experience as others. The chef came out as soon as I told the server I had Celiac. He went over the menu with me and told me what I could and could not have. My meal was delicious and best of all I did not get sick!

A truly great experience! Once alerted to our celiac, the waitress brought out a chef who went through the menu with us and offered to create a dish we would enjoy if we didn’t want what was listed. Our order was on a different colour paper to stand out in the kitchen and cooked by the chef who came to our table (who also checked on us later). Highly recommend!!

They do not have a gluten-free menu per se, because the manager or chef comes out to go over everything they can do for you! Who knew you could get this level of service, absolutely priceless!

As everyone mentioned, extra precautions are taken with those who have allergies or an autoimmune disorder, such as Celiac disease. The chef personally reviews options with you and writes on a red ticket! They have a wid variety of options from chicken fajitas with corn tortillas, pasta, burgers and bbq sandwiches with buns. Make sure to let your waitress know you have an allergy prior to ordering the above mentioned items so special precautions can be implemented and cross contamination avoided!

Amazing. Chef came out to talk to us. My daughter was with a group who were having a set menu so they arranged burger and fries. Originally were going to oven bake fries but came back and said they were putting on the dedicated deep fryer for her. Only very happy 11 year old coeliac.

I was completely impressed by the level of service here. The moment I told our waitress I had a gluten allergy she sent the chef to our table. The chef walked through the menu on everything that he was able to make safe which was 75% of the menu. He took my order on a red allergy card. The same chef brought out my dinner and assured me, he was the only one who prepared my dish to keep it from cross contamination.

We told the waitress about my son being celiac. She brought another menu. She also called the kitchen manager when it was time to order. My son got a burger and loved it

I didn’t think that I’d be able to eat here because they didn’t have a dedicated GF menu and only 1 thing was listed. They do have a GF bun and a dedicated fryer. We were here for a week. I ate there most nights and they were very accommodating and careful!

When they say gluten free fryer they mean basket. There is no separate fryer, they can bake fries instead though.
