A fair amount of the menu is gf and clearly marked. Our server knew what I could have and let the kitchen know I was celiac. I thought the food was tasty and I ate here safely twice.

*proceed with caution* Went here because my partner (who is the celiac one) noticed many GF options. The waiter (thankfully) informed us that most of the “available gluten free” items would still have cross contamination.

Not great gluten free experience. Waitress didn’t seem to be very knowledgeable about celiac and had to confirm many times if things were gluten free. Ended up just ordering a salad. AND when it arrived it had a piece of bread right on top. After a night of being feeling very high maintenance, went home feeling quite sick anyways. Wouldn’t recommend for celiacs

Food was pretty good - think nice pub food quality. The menu has gluten free items clearly marked; however, when I was placing my order for takeout I learned that that included items that are cooked in a shared fryer, which obviously is a no-go for celiac. I was told there was no risk of cross-contamination with the salmon surf bowl, so that's what I went with.
