From the owner

Family restaurant with extensive gluten-free menu in Wilmington. Serving coal-fired comfort food in relaxed atmosphere.

On safety—Red Heat Tavern takes many precautions in safely serving gluten-free guests. Servers inquire about food allergies or dietary restrictions when greeting the table. Cooks wash their hands & change gloves before starting any allergy meal. Special sets of purple cutting boards, chef knives & utensils are set aside in the kitchen to prepare only gluten-free food & they are washed/sanitized in between every use. There are three separate fryers in the kitchen, two of which are always dedicated gluten free. Gluten does not touch the charbroiler. All gluten-free/allergy food is served on red plates to designate them as such & they are delivered to the table by a manager or certified allergy specialist.

We sat at the bar because it was so busy. The bartender was very knowledgeable about GF needs and anticipated a lot of my questions once she knew I have a gluten allergy. Their fryers are all dedicated GF and only a few items on their menu cannot be done GF (the pretzel and tacos, I was told). Overall a good meal and I was able to have some of the fried apps that I don’t often get to eat, with no issues after.

This place is amazing! All guest get gluten free food in general. Anything that has batter on it such as fried chicken, comes gluten free for everyone. They do not even offer regular breading for chicken or fried foods. Only gluten free! All items that go in the fryers are gluten free. They serve items that have an “allergy” warning on it on a red plate. The staff are very knowledgeable. This place offers the most variety for gluten free in restaurants ive ever seen. Not to mention the food was delicious. I would recommend this to people who are gluten free and who arent!

When Red Heat opened it changed the game for dining out. Allergies were taken /very/ seriously. That doesn't seem to be the case any longer.

Part of the way through my burger I started to feel unwell. Everything had come out on a red plate like normal, and was confirmed to be gluten free. It didn't come out with a manager, so maybe that was a red flag. After I started feeling gross someone informed me they saw the food runner touching some normal food and then handling mine. Wish they had told me BEFORE I ate.

Very sick afterwards, and so sad. I feel like I can't trust this establishment anymore.

Before a couple weeks ago I would have given 5 stars. Last time I went I got a wrap. It did not look how it previously looked, so we asked if they were sure it’s gf. Got home and I knew it wasn’t. I wouldn’t be as upset if we hadn’t checked and they still said it was. Often times the person we ask acts as if it’s an inconvenience to verify.

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!

One of the most impressive gluten free menus I’ve found!! We can have everything fried since they have a separate fryer. I haven’t had fried chicken tenders in so long. It was good! My server was so knowledgeable. My food came out cold and the place is very understaffed. But even with that I will 100% be back

While much of the menu is alreay or able to make gluten free, the place is not very careful with allergens. My family has tried the restaurant a few times and every time allergens were in what we ordered. Last time I asked if the cheesecake could be made without the berries on it. The manager said yes,and l ordered the cheesecake. It came loaded with strawberries. I mentioned it and was told by the manager that I could just pick them off. After that I will never return because I can’t trust them. “Picking off” an allergen in a dish is not an acceptable reason. I specified multiple times every visit that I not only had celiac disease but also other anaphylactic food allergies including,m strawberries. I do understand no matter where I eat there is a risk of cross contamination, but when I’m told to pick off an anaphylactic allergen, I can’t trust any of my food being safe to consume.

I have never gotten sick eating here. The GF southern fried chicken is my favorite, I have also had (and loved) the pulled pork sandwich, fish tacos, nachos and tempura cauliflower/broccoli. 100% recommend for anyone who is GF

If you like bar food just put the phone/tablet/laptop down and go now! A celiac’s paradise!!! Like 95% of the menu can be GF (and they keep improving on that). There isn’t a separate Gf menu bc of that. I think the only things I’ve been told can’t be made Gf is the pretzel appetizer, the pita which comes with the artichoke dip (they’ll give you tortilla chips instead), and the wrap sandwich (they’ll do it on a bun for you though). They do have GF Fried pickles, wings (including boneless!), ribs, artichoke dip, nachos (my fav! I get it with chicken and split it as a meal it’s so good and so huge!!), sandwiches and burgers galore, onion straws, bacon tater tots, fries (regular, sweet potato, garlic Parmesan), roasted Brussels sprouts or cauliflower, all kinds of smoked meat (which they do in house), amazing Mac and cheese, meatloaf, fried chicken, and it just goes on and on! Oh not to mention ALL the desserts are Gf - yeah! Including the upside down cheesecake with crumbled GF Grahams on top! They recently opened more locations and more are to come soon. Oh! Also the allergen plates are not only delivered by the manager but they are always red! Great way to identify a plate that needs extra caution through the whole process! Love it!! BTw this is a sister restaurant to Burton’s which is co-owned (or they are in the board) by a fellow celiac! Just go!! It’s awesome!!

Staff is friendly and knowledgeable but I wouldn't go back. I have gotten sick twice now from their food. I have a gluten and dairy allergy but was told they could handle it. However, both times the chef talked me into eating French fries from their dedicated fryer, which I'm sure is the reason why I got sick from their food. I'm not convinced they don't put milk in batter for fries. Ok for GF for they do have a large selection and a "dedicated" fryer, but I would not trust them with celiac or dairy allergies.

The staff is not allergy knowledgeable. I have a soy allergy, manager said it is soy bean, not soy. ??? Most soy is cross contaminated with wheat because this is how farmers grow... If you have a soy allergy don’t even bother there’s pretty much nothing on the menu you can have Everything is fried in soybean oil

I got rice with bland chicken breast when ordering Mediterranean bowl. If this were a scratch kitchen..the other items as listed could have been put in ‘un-soyed’.

AMAZING food and great gluten free knowledge. As soon as you sit down they ask if anyone in your party has food allergies and if so, they will serve your food on a red plate. They have dedicated gluten free fryers and can basically make everything gluten free (except the pretzel). Must have the bang bang broccoli and the sweet potato fries!

I go here regularly with no issue. All GF meals are marked by being on a red plate as claimed in the restaurant self-written description above (not a labeled toothpick but an obvious indicator to all staff). I always ask just in case and am always told red plate=gf and the staff is always well trained on handling gf/celiac customers. They have separate fryers for allergens including a gluten free fryer. They say all menu items can be made gluten free and I have never encountered anything they wouldn't do gf. This is my go-to 'I worked too long today and all I want is chicken tenders and french fries now' place.

I am also allergic to dairy so one time I asked for a dairy free sauce chef's choice to go with some fried pickles instead of the usual ranch and they absolutely delivered.

Also you can clearly mark online orders for gluten allergy with a whole section of the online menu being set up as 'gluten free menu item name' and you can further mark all your allergens from the selection box and write a note for each item. The takeout boxes will have allergy stickers on the individual items.

Good poisoning for me and all of my party. It feels like it was also gluten. The celiacs in our party were sick much longer than everyone else and one of us got the celiac rash afterwards. I would never eat here again.

Ate here for while traveling on my son’s birthday. Three of us are gluten free. Plenty of choices for apps, dinner and dessert that we could choose from. Everything was delicious and service was great and very knowledgeable! Gluten free meals came out on a different color plate than meals with gluten.
