On the plus side, there is a dedicated fryer and there are many dishes that can be made or are gf. I had fish tacos which were tasty. However I was there with my 9 year old son and a friend with young children and after choosing it bc the gf app told me it had many options, it didn't. They no longer do any kind of pizza and have no gf rolls or bread. The kids menu is pretty slim even if you can have gluten, but my son wound up with rice pasta and butter, which was Asian style rice noodles with butter. And a side of broccoli and grilled chicken. Even the nachos were made with flour chips. They also didn't have the gluten free brownie (or any other gf dessert) that their own gf menu said they had. It was super disappointing and frustrating.

GF options, but not celiac friendly. I got sick.

Love some of their GF brunch options, I find dinner a bit harder to navigate with the allergen menu they provide. Overall a pretty safe bet and a cool atmosphere

Good food, lots of "gf" options. I ended up sick later that night from my gf meal.

Enjoyed my lunch, knowing of the dedicated fryer meant I could eat much of the menu.

All around outstanding. Hostess was super sweet and right away said "Celiac? You came to the right place" and proceeded to tell me a few highlights on the menu. Bartender couldn't have been more knowledgeable too. So the staff is 💯. Food = 💯. Everything we ordered was incredible. Hope this place is around to stay!

Items on menu were clearly marked and the waitress checked with the chef for our questions. They had a dedicated GF fryer. The Falsal (falafel salad) was terrific and a huge meal. They were able to fry the falafel in a dedicated fryer. My daughter has Celiac and has the Imperial Thai Fighter - she enjoyed it. Giving 3 stars only because of the cleanliness of the restaurant.

They mark all items here on the menu for GF and have a dedicated fryer! I've never felt bad after eating here, the food is very good and in huge portions so be prepared for that! Also vegan options

I've been here more time than I can count and it's always been great. I wish they had gluten free bread to make some of their sandwiches on them, but for now they don't. dedicated fryer. best sweet potato fries I've every had.

Great food, friendly staff, 3 GF and 2 non-GF family members all enjoyed their food! Silly decor and fun atmosphere!

We LOVE Silly's as a family (all adult now...but we've been coming for years, perfect place for kids), as it's always a fun, whimsical and interesting place to dine. There are quite a few GF options or adaptations. Please remember to tell your server you are strictly GF, so anything prepared is done in dedicated GF oil and surfaces. The brunch crepes are to die for...sweet, divine and delicious. They DON'T take reservations, nor seat until the entire party is present, so this can be a challenge on occasion...especially since parking is often difficult.

Silly's is always a fun and reliable place to eat! Really extensive menu—you'll have trouble making up your mind. I recommend browsing the menu online before you go to Silly's, as GF items are separated there but not on the physical menu. My favorite dishes are Eggy Pop (sans toast), and Harmonious Chaos Salad. Just make sure you ask them to use the gluten free fryer for things like fries, sweet potato fries, fried tofu, and bacon. A few more notes: great for kids/families, generous portions, strong drinks, GF items take a little longer than non-GF items so allow extra time.

casual, whimsical place for a quick bite, hangout, etc. appreciated the deck of card found in their lunch box that also contains menus and.extra napkins. ordered 4 gf items: gravy danger, slob bowl, mythos, and brownie sundae. food served quickly, servers were friendly, flavors were there, and lost importantly, gf hub felt good afterwards. only "complaint" would be not finding that many items that are listed gf. maybe they could modify a few more dishes? if they would offer gf breads and pizzas even for additional charges, it'll make this place even more gf-friendly.

I have Celiac disease and had high hopes for Silly's because I've read all the great reviews. We went there Friday night and about 10 minutes into my mean I started getting the tell-tale stomach pains I get when I consume gluten (even just a cross-contamination amount... I'm very sensitive). Two bites later, I noticed something odd sticking out of my food... it was a piece of penne pasta (I had a lamb, rice and veggie dish called Mythos). I did tell the server (as it asks you to on their menu... this dish was listed as "GF" too, btw) beforehand that I can't eat gluten. I'm not one to say anything and the other people I was with had just finished their meals so I just asked for a to-go box and gave my leftovers to my boyfriend. So the lesson here is, BEWARE.

Always great food and great service! The menu is layed out so you know what you can have immediately. The staff is always great. Sometimes GF takes a little bit longer for them to make, but well worth it!

Great menu, lots of great gluten free options. The gluten free pizza crust they offer does not taste like pizza exactly but is tasty nevertheless! Very fun atmosphere!

Menu is clear about which items are vegan, vegetarian & gluten free. Funky atmosphere!
