So nice to be able to eat almost anything on the clearly marked menu. Thai boneless tenders were delicious, as were the Parmesan fries and chicken sandwich on a GF bun. Very happy to have found this place traveling through MA. The whole family had a good meal.

Usually the gf beer offering is Redbridge; I was surprised that they stock Celia Saison AND IPA #5, a personal favorite. Waitress said the entire menu is gf; I’m always dubious. I had fish tacos that were awesome; deep fried taco shells were very crispy & crumbly (don’t order on a 1st date!). The accompanying rice was ok; not hot, but tasty. My adult non gf son had a fish dinner. He liked it but had to remove cilantro. It came with rice, which surprised him, he’d have preferred fries. He felt his portion wasn’t large enough to fill him. He then wanted dessert & got “upside down cheesecake” which he liked. I had a gf strawberry shortcake served warm in a skillet with ice cream. I seldom eat dessert, so it was a real treat. Server was responsive and very upbeat. Will definitely come again!

This is my goto restaurant. I’ve tried most items in the menu at this point, as almost anything can be made gluten free. GF items come out on a red plate and are usually brought by a manager. I have a few friends who are also celiacs who have never had any problems here, and the food and drinks are great!

We used to order from and go to red heat all the time. I had a few times my husband looked and could tell they mixed up my order and the fixed it quickly. The final time, my food was marked gluten free and all. When I went to take a bite of my sandwich it was very clearly on a ciabatta roll. It was not gluten free. I was extremely upset. They offered to come my meal and give us a gift card but after the multiple mess ups wasn’t worth it.

Hello, My name is Dee and I went to Red Heat Tavern Sunday. I got mac and cheese and a Cesar salad. My friend got a house salad with blue cheeses dressing. We were not happy with any of the food choices. The mac and cheese just tasted like onion and the salad did not seem to have any cheese except for like a sprinkle of Kraft type powder cheese. The dressing did not seem to have any blue cheese chunks at all. The house salad had a rotted tomato. The drinks were watered down (wine and soda). Also the waitress seemed harsh and not soft and friendly. Not a good first impression.

Excellent restaurant, the sister company of Burton’s Grill in which the owner has celiac. Allergies are taken seriously, wait staff is knowledgeable, every menu item can be made GF (except their soft baked pretzel), dedicated fryer, meals delivered by managements on red plates to indicate an allergy, and their food is excellent. I would highly recommend!

My daughters both have Celiac Disease and we love Red Heat! It’s a from scratch kitchen so they can make just about everything gluten free. The fried chicken with gravy, mashed potatoes and green beans is our favorite. The farm house burger is awesome also!

The waitress was extremely knowledgeable about food allergies. All items were brought out on red plates that were gluten free. Food was very tasty and different. I don’t know when the last time was that I had fried chicken, fried pickles and tater tots. The food was amazing and no one got sick. A must visit if you are around one.

Always good food we always go here. I get chicken tenders, and the menu is basically all gluten free except 2-3 things. GF food is surved on red plates if you get a non red plate send it back.
