While they have a gluten free menu, I am also corn free. They didn’t seem to l ow how to handle that and my meal had corn in it somewhere because I had a reaction. Our waitress was great but it took 30 minutes for appetizers and then the rest of the meal came out cold and incorrect

Great GF options. Have to ask for GF menu, staff is very knowledgable. We all had the bucket of shrimp, quesadilla burger with mashed potatoes and cheesecake for dessert. No reaction at all. I recommend making reservations as it does get very crowded

The food is decent but I’m not a huge fan of the bun. I’m not marking celiac friendly because I had one small bite of the rice and was sure there was pasta. I wasn’t feeling great but I’m not sure why that was. It could have been many things.

Dedicated gluten free menu with many options. Burgers with gluten free buns, tacos, salads, pasta, quesadillas. Server brought out a card to sign and note that I had celiac/note any allergy to give to the chef.

They have an entire gluten free menu and the servers are very knowledgeable about the food. You can’t eat fries at any of their locations, but they have tons of other side.

they have a gluten free menu, but I always get the wings which aren't on it because of a shared fryer. the wings never make me sick and I think they are the best in columbus.

I had the BBQ Chicken. Food was good but didn't blow my mind that's why I have 4 stars. Gf menu was small but had enough of a selection. Staff was very nice.

I asked for the GF quesidilla, it was brought out as a regular. I asked to make sure it was the gluten free and they assured me it was, I had to ask a second time before the chef confirmed it was not gluten free. It took another 20 minutes for the gluten free version to come back out.

Ordered the delicious Bacon Burger on a gluten-free bun that held up well. No separate fryer, so I substituted mashed potatoes that were nothing special. Great service and atmostphere.

Food was just OK. Definitely not worth my wife getting sick from the one time we ate here. She requested Gluten free but she had a strong reaction anyway. She is celiac, so especially sensitive to gluten, but we won't be back.

The food here is decent & I have never had a reaction. However, I stopped going due to the suspicious price increase. Example: A gluten free double nickel salad costs more than the regular despite it being the same thing (minus the GF having no Bleu cheese). This is unethical IMHO.
