Menu doesn’t show the breadth of GF options they have. Fries/tots are in separate fryer. Two thumbs up.

(Aug 2023) Overall a very good experience— the only thing I would say is that the menu isn’t super well-marked. Dishes do say gluten-free in the description but it’s in with the other description text and can be hard to find when you’re just scanning the menu. (Other reviews say there is a GF menu but I asked and the host told me that there isn’t one.) However, the host and the servers were very knowledgeable. There are GF fryers and buffer fryers, GF bread and buns, and all the fries can be done GF (including the sweet potato fries!). Arrive early if there’s a Twins game.

I’ve eaten here before and been somewhat okay, but tonight I got glutened pretty bad. I had the chips and onion dip (separate fryer) and the mushroom Swiss burger with the gf bun and sweet potato fries (separate fryer). Got home and got really sick. Super bummed because I love this place but now I will not be going for a while.

The best service we have ever had. They have gluten free breaded boneless chicken wings. My husband loved the gluten free bin. It's definitely not the frozen udi bun. The Brussel sprouts were amazing. They messed up the oderbut apologized and re made it quickly. The caught the mistake themselves. They take precautions to avoid cross contamination.

I had the ahi tuna burger on a gluten free bun, with fries made in a dedicated fryer! Servers were very knowledgeable and it’s been 4 hours and no reaction so I have to assume the kitchen takes precautions to prevent cross contamination also. I’ll be back!

This place was amazing. Awesome food. Awesome service and extremely knowledgeable and took special care with allergies. Lots of yummy options too. They even announced the fact I have celiac and my friends mushroom allergy when they brought the food to the table. If I could give a 10 star rating I dont feel like that would even be enough.

I had an AMAZING dinner here. I tried the sweet potato fries (a little spicy for me but delish) as they have a DEDICATED FRYER, and a breakfast burger, complete with egg, bacon, and peanut butter. Surprisingly one of the best burger combos I’ve ever had! The staff was very knowledgeable about my celiac and dairy allergy. I would highly recommend this place.

Food was just ok. The gluten free bun was really soggy and basically disintegrated into the burger. They have GF fries which were good but cooked a little overdone. Our server was not friendly. Drinks were not cheap. It was an alright experience but I won’t be returning.

The menu is clearly marked with gluten free options (about half of the menu can be ordered GF). I had the turkey burger on a GF bun with regular fries in a dedicated GF fryer (both very yummy). I also had the Glutenberg Pale Ale beer (also very good). Overall great meal and ambiance. Others have stated the prices are high, but I think they’re fine since the food and service was quality. My bill was $23.50 with tax.

It was a GF hamburger and fries. Add on the tip and parking and we dropped over $40.00 for 2 burgers and water. The seeing is like a bar or lounge, not really our scene. There are better options fit us, for less.

Best burger I’ve ever had. Beef was supreme and flavorful. Cheese was top notch. Dressing was perfect for the burger. Fries are very good and dedicated fryer. Bun was okay but good for GF, so it was still dry and crumbled. But the hamburger outshined the bread!

They have a dedicated gluten free fryer, but NOT a dedicated gluten free griddle. They do offer gluten free buns, but if you are very sensitive to cross contamination, the burgers are a no go. I got truffle fries, boneless chicken wings, and buffalo cauliflower. All made in the gluten free fryer. I had no reaction and everything was delicious! The server was very careful about noting that I had celiac and was very helpful.
