    They had a good dinner and dessert menu that was GF. The staff was very knowledgeable.

    Biggest issue is the shared fryers. They label items gluten free that are fried in shared oil with gluten items. Verify when you order that items are not deep fried. They have really yummy gluten free items - curry, jambalya Just be careful and do not trust their GF labels on their menus. If you read closely - I think it says Gluten Free Friendly or something like that. Not OK for Celiacs. I still love going there, but am diligent about quizzing the server. Tater tots are not OK for Celiacs.

    I've been here twice so far, and I probably will continue to go here whenever I have a hankering for some amazing pizza. Their pizza is sublime. Probably one of the best I've had. The staff each time has been semi-knowledgable and accommodating. If they don't know if something has gluten they'll go and ask some one who does know. The only bad thing is that they have a shared fryer so any fried food isn't gluten free. I suggest going to this place and get a bite of their GF pizza or other delicious gluten free meal options.

    Great service, GF clearly marked on menu, staff happy to help clarifying any issues on gluten content, great food, staff vocalized understanding of CC issues, but you may have to wait a bit.... It's so worth it! Best part = No bad reaction! 😀

    My server was very helpful with selecting a GF item and informing the kitchen of my needs. He was extremely pleasant when dealing with my special needs. The food was delicious. I will definitely be returning.

    Good effort with a good-looking menu which indicated gluten-free items, but I definitely felt glutened after having the jambalaya entree. The food tasted excellent, price was great, and the service was great, so I may not be giving up on it...

    We had a terrible experience here. They tried to serve me the tater tots which are cooked in the same fryer as everything else. They even suggested them as an option. If I had not asked, I would have been glutened for sure. I ordered something else on the menu and when I took a bite there was a piece of broken plastic in the bite. I called the waitress over and she took my plate back to the kitchen. she asked if I wanted something else...of course I did not! then said, I'll take this off your bill. A mgr. came over and wrote down my name and phone number to have in case I went to the dentist. They still charged my husband for his meal. I won't go back.

    They claim to be gluten free or gluten friendly but neither our waitress or the kitchen could answer my specific questions about items on the menu. I got sick after eating here. Was there with a larger party and none enjoyed their meals here or the service.

    Don't eat here if you have celiac disease. If you eat gluten free because it is "fashionable" you will be fine. Menu has disclaimer that they can't guarantee against cross- contamination. They describe GF as gluten -friendly, not gluten-free. I got horribly sick.....

    The menus were recently redesigned and gluten-free options are now labeled. There are not a lot of options but enough to keep me coming back. They have tater tots!
