Highly recommended! I’m from the DC area and I’m so sad that when I go home there will be no Samantha’s. The environment is lovely—positive energy and inspirational quotes on the walls. The menu is extensive with so many GF options. Our waiter, Byron, was exceptional. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about my visit to Samantha’s.
I feel so lucky to have found this restaurant. The Reuben sandwich was the best I've ever eaten. I live an hour away, but I plan to return in 2 days! I couldn't believe how many items could be made gluten free. The server was friendly and fast.
Service is awful, cold staff, long waits. Have ordered many different gluten free menu items and have not been pleased with the taste/smell some of them have had. Will not be going back to this establishment, I’m amazed that they have so many “awards” from around town.
This is the most GF friendly restaurant I’ve ever been to. Nearly everything on the menu is available in a gluten free option, and it’s very clearly marked. The staff is very knowledgeable and it’s never an issue to ask questions or make substitutions. The menu is huge, food is delicious and reasonably priced. My non-GF family loves to eat here as well. 10 out of 10 would recommend!
I like that the menu has FF options listed on it. However, they supposedly offered all sorts of sandwich bread options, but were all out of them except for the burger buns. So, I didn't get the Reuben I had intended to. The item I did order, a chicken burger, turned out to have to be modified to make it GF. A breast vs a "ground burger". They also changed the brick cheese for some reason. At least they were very conscientious about everything and the meal was yummy. Also, the food was extremely slow, about an hour, which they were very apologetic about.
We have visited Samantha's so many times this past year and my son has never gotten sick once. He has Celiac disease and it is so wonderful to have a place where he can order pancakes or French toast safely! They offer several types of GF bread, use a separate toaster and separate cooktop for the pancakes etc. They have a full GF menu and are aware of Cross contamination and are sure to give you butter packets instead of a scoop of the shared butter. We love Samantha's! So glad it's nearby!
I was disappointed. Hostess was not friendly and they are "in between" menus, so you have to ask the server about everything. The normal menu was disorganized as well. Omelette was tasty, but the home fries weren't. Cheap, yucky ketchup. My family was happy with their regular meals.
Great food and very helpful with gluten free questions. They have a portion of the grill that is dedicated gluten-free, but the deep fried GF items are fried in the same oil as breaded items. For that reason I substitute grilled hash browns for fries. Excellent taste.
