    Excellent choices and very tasty. I have a non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Definitely have piece of mind eating here, as I have done so already a few times and have not gotten sick. Yay!!!

    Gluten free pancakes are good and they have several other items on the menu that are gluten free, as well as breads and hamburger rolls.

    Gluten free, as well as vegan and vegetarian, is marked on menu. Friendly service- not always knowledgeable but most servers are happy to ask. Portabella pesto pasta, summer citrus salad and pesto burger with Udi's bun are all delicious. Also have gf bread for toast, pancakes, etc.

    Food is all prepared in the same areas but the GF pancake breakfast is excellent. Served with strawberries and yogurt that are yummy. Also the salmon with capers is good. They do offer one GF dessert which is nice as well. Only complaint I have is the service. Every time I mention that I have celiac and need GF, I get heavy sighs or they try to up-sell something to me that's not even GF. I enjoy coming here for the pancakes and juke boxes though.

    I ordered a vegan dish (rice and veggies) thinking it might be a safer choice, given that there are few gluten free items available. I let the wait staff know about my need to avoid gluten and talked a bit about cross contamination, but several hours later I realize gluten was definitely in my food. I do not recommend this restaurant if you have celiac or are sensitive to gluten. Unfortunately I don’t think the staff is trained at all for food allergies, other than to possibly alert the chef.

    Menu well marked for GF and looks like a lot of choices - including substitute GF bun or GF bread. No sickness afterward. We had the awesome vegetarian chili, which was just a little spicy but not so much to be detracting, and shared an order of lamb meatballs, which were nicely spiced, nice texture and served on a bed of wilted spinach. The soup states GF without crackers and we added, for a price, GF bread which came perfectly toasted and was very good bread. The Silver Diner is accessible to the A, B and C concourses but not to D or E. Pity since we usually fly on Delta out of the D but just happened to be on Southwest this time. Good but I don't think we'd go through security twice for it!

    The staff isn’t very knowledgeable about celiac or what is truly gf or cross contamination. However, they have gf items on the menu and if you are clear with the servers about your needs they are great about making sure you have your food as you need it. I’ve eaten here a number of times—never got sick or felt bad afterwards.

    Good in theory, dangerous if you have the wrong person. I kept asking if my to-go order was GF. I asked for veggies with my burger. It came out with fries and a regular bun. Despite repeating several times that I am allergic to gluten, she didn’t seem to care.

    Giving a 5 star simply because it is in the airport and there are slim pickings, especially at breakfast! I ordered two eggs with a side of bacon to go and the staff was very knowledgeable. I did not get sick and it was really nice to have something to eat that early in the morning

    Great food and good service. The waiter knew what celiac disease was, and the manager (who was gluten intolerant) came out to talk to me to let me know their gf practices. They do not have a separate kitchen, but they will wipe down the grill and do glove changes. I was told that they have a dedicated toaster.

    My sister and I ate her when we were stuck at the airport for an extra two and a half hours. We found the server to be very knowledgeable about precautions. They clean the grill/griddle, change gloves, and the toast has its own toaster. The GF bread was quite good. I gave fewer stars because our server forgot my sister's shake entirely and our meal came out missing toppings. I'd eat here again as I didn't get sick from the food.

    They have gluten free buns for their awesome hamburgers!! I had a side salad instead of fries. I am sure their kitchen is not a gluten free environment so I made sure to take my Gluten cutter pill before I ate (to help in cross contamination issues). You can get those at CVS!

    I didn’t felt safe -staff wasn’t knowledgeable of gluten free diet/items on menu. I was told to look for gf on the menu. Children’s menu gf choices- gf spaghetti and lamb meatballs (no information if they were gf), quinoa pancakes, and grilled cheese sandwich. Adult had very few choices with gf by it. I had to ask if they could make my daughter, 9, a gf cheese hamburger from adult menu - it wasn’t marked as gf item. I was told that a gluten free bun cost extra. Order came cheese wasn’t on the hamburger, my barbecue sauce for Barbque burger was missing - I asked for it to on the side, and daughter’s requested mayonnaise was missing. They never came to offer refills, if we needed anything, or ask if we wanted dessert. I had to flag down the waiter to get my bill. The restaurant was at quick pace but not “bust”.

    Went in for breakfast early on Sunday morning. Ordered a GF breakfast and asked them to please do an allergy alert or whatever was needed to ensure GF. Within an hour, I was very sick. This was serious cross contamination and put me down for over a day. I have eaten at other SD locations without an issue but we definitely will never be back to the Woodbridge store.

    Our waiter was knowledgeable about basic gf but for the tougher questions he was willing and did ask his manager any questions we had. We had the warm roasted local veggie salad and the philly steak omelet. Both were great. We also tried the brownie decadence dessert which was amazing!! The brownie had a nice flavor and texture and was loaded with ice cream, whipped cream, hot fudge, caramel, and two cherries on top. The only reason I didn’t give this 5 stars was the menu was a bit confusing. Some things were labeled gf, some things stated ‘do this —— to make it gf’, but some things, like basic fruit, weren’t labeled at all while other basic things were. Most of our questions stemmed from not understanding the menu labeling and whether or not things were gf. Our waiter was able to clarify our questions but it shouldn’t be that difficult. Overall we were very satisfied with our food and my boyfriend didn’t get sick so win-win!
