    I met a friend here for happy hour, not planning to eat. When I asked, though, the bartender was knowledgeable about gf and celiac. They have a dedicated fryer and use Schär gf buns for burgers and other sandwiches. The bartender was knowledgeable of cross contact and was sure to let the kitchen know to prepare mine carefully. I enjoyed a burger and fries. (FYI- I have celiac disease but I don’t have GI symptoms, so I can never tell if my food was contaminated. I can’t be sure this place is celiac friendly but it seemed to be)

    Oh, I wanted to like this. I had such high hopes. Nothing is marked gluten free on the menu but the waitress was knowledgeable. They had homemade gluten free buns/bread/flatbreads. I ordered the burger which was probably half a pound of meat. However, it was raw!! in the middle. I had to send it back (I had ordered it medium) They brought out another one is it was rare. I didn't bother eating it but they didn't offer any solutions or money off or anything. The fries were overly seasoned (though in a dedicated fryer) The ketchup was homemade but could possibly be glutenous because it tasted like it might have soy sauce in it. Additionally, the bartender lit a cinnamon stick on fire which made the whole place smell like incense which made me quite nauseated. Also, I got sick from the little bit I ate. My gluten-eating husband got sick too. I would definitely avoid.

    The lunch crowd and food are great. The burgers with GF buns are very good. My only request is to note on the GF offerings (for example, the GF buns). The food is very good.

    We ate here after seeing a performance at the Fox. Not quite walking distance, but there was ample metered street parking which was free on Sunday. I ordered the grilled vegetable flatbread minus the mozzarella because I don't tolerate that well. It was absolutely delicious with grilled eggplant, sautéed onions, and goat cheese, which is the only cheese I DO tolerate, so I was thrilled they had it! I also had a pineapple daiquiri which was small but delicious. Will definitely return.

    Very friendly and helpful on a week night dinner. Our waitress quickly identified which options were safe (most of the entrees) and told me about the GF buns and flatbreads for pizza. She made me feel comfortable with my food allergies and didn't make an issue out of them.

    Lots of gluten free options and a dedicated fryer for their chips and fries (YAY). They have gf guns and a gf flatbread but from the info I got they cook the flatbreads on the same surface as the regular flatbreads. Will definitely return.

    This is a new place and I was a little nervous to try it, but my friend works there as a line cook and it was easy to get the information I needed. For some reason it's not advertised, but they are very accommodating to gluten free diets (vegetarian too). Much of their food is or can be made gluten free, they have gluten free buns available for their delicious burgers (farmhouse was amazing!) and gluten free crusts for flat breads. They even a dedicated gluten free fryer so you can have some of their house made taro chips. And a gluten free brownie dessert is also on the menu. When I asked why these options weren't advertised better, they said they advertised some of it as gluten free and regular customers wouldn't buy it (such as the brownie dessert, which is inherently gluten free). I had no issues after eating there, and I'm very celiac. Hopefully they continue this.
