DO NOT EAT HERE!!!!! Stay away. The food is fine, but not anything special. They have a lot of "gluten free" options and I've had a mix of experiences here. But after the last time I was there, I will never be going back. Ordered the portabella mushroom sandwich, talked to my waiter about it needing to be gluten free and he assured me it was, but after I ordered I did not feel safe to eat here. Staff acted like they did not care and did not take me seriously. What made me feel even more unsafe beyond the lack of care was the refusal to double check and the 4 shots I watched my waiter take in the span of less than an hour.

Fries are breaded and NOT gluten free, so stay away from those as well. Just stay away.

HATE this place. Absolutely hate it. I’ve tried to eat here more than 10 times 1) because I live down the street, 2) because they have tons of seemingly gluten free options, and 3) because everything there is delicious. Regardless, each time I’ve eaten here I’ve been glutened to some extent, from mild to very severe. I thought I’d be safe with a salad, but found a gluten-containing French fry halfway through that wasn’t supposed to be in there. Pizza is cooked in a shared oven. Fries in a shared fryer + breading. Tomato soup is supposed to be gluten free but the *cheesy* tomato soup has croutons (be careful with this). I’ve noticed the last few times the staff now emphasize that cross-contamination is inevitable in their small kitchen when ordering gluten free. Nothing here is safe.

Gluten free Kaiser rolls and gluten free pizza on the menu. I had the bruschetta pizza. It was delicious. The crust was premade but it tasted great. A lot better than some I’ve had. I would go back again for sure.

The pizza dough was very flat and chewy, which was disappointing :(

They offer GF pizza crust and GF sandwich bread. The waiter (and it seemed the kitchen too) was very knowledgeable about gluten containing and gluten free ingredients in the dishes I asked about. I really enjoyed the experience and was very grateful that the restaurant was so eager to make any changes to make dishes available GF

In my experience, the staff is not very knowledgeable or aware of the severity of food allergies. However, they do have some gluten free options. They seem to be able to make any sandwich gluten free and have gluten free "shady sticks" which I think are cheese sticks?

If you aren't very sensitive, I would say it's worth a try, but make sure you ask if you are unsure about anything, as they won't warn you if you accidentally order something you weren't aware contained wheat.
