Their menu looks like they have lots of options but very little is actually safe. Everything is made on shared surfaces and many things are fried even though the menu does not list them as fried. The menu is extremely misleading but thankfully our server was knowledgeable and was quick to point out the inaccuracies and helped me cobble together an order that was safe but I decided it was best to not eat.

Excellent food very knowledgeable about gluten free foods. Clearly marked on menu. Husband said that he had the best Bloody Mary he’s ever had (he got it spicy). I had the shrimp and grits and it was so delicious and filling. Also tried the corn soufflé, delicious. Rylee was our server and he was amazing!

Loved it. Lots of options. Will definitely be back. Only sad part was that there were no GF dessert options!

I love this place. I love the atmosphere and there are some good food options as well. Had the fried chicken, salad, and deviled eggs. Cocktails are good too. I highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant. I had the deviled eggs, burger and a side salad. Didn't get sick at all. The GF hamburger bun didn't fall apart and was pretty tasty. The deviled Eggs are a must when you eat here. The waitress was knowledgeable about Celiac. I will be going here again.

I have celiac disease and was very nervous. The menu has a lot of GF options or can be altered to accommodate GF needs. The waitress didn’t seem too concerned about my restrictions so I’m not sure how safely it was prepared. I was definitely bloated following the dinner but I did have a lot to eat. They also had two GF dessert options, one of which being cheesecake! Still a little skeptical because it was absolutely delicious. I’d make sure to communicate thoroughly with your server your needs. They were accommodating but I’ve had better experiences with safety at other places.

Spectacular service. I told my waiter I was gluten intolerant and I ordered the fried chicken. He told me it was a shared fryer, and while that typically doesn’t bother my body, I appreciate them letting me know. He brought everyone else malt vinegar and hot honey, and simply brought me the honey because he understood I couldn’t have the malt.

The food was spectacular. I hadn’t had fried chicken in 6 months since I last went to Cincinnati (give galactic fried chicken a try if you’re ever there), and had been craving it for weeks. We will be going back as soon as we can!

Menu has items marked gluten free that are not celiac safe. Fried foods are in a shared fryer. Half the items marked gluten free are not safe.
