    Celiac. I enjoyed my meal. While I was the only person at the table with a GF diet. My parents were not as happy. The breakfast hash bowls were terrific and the gluten free bread was good also. Our server was nice. I feel the error was in the timing and possibly due to the GF option.

    There is no gluten free menu. The staff knows nothing except that they have gluten free bread. Didn’t feel like figuring out the menu so I didn’t eat here.

    The food was delicious, staff was polite, restaurant was clean, but NOT CELIAC SAFE! My son and I, both, have Celiac disease. When we arrived we inquired about a gluten-free menu (none available), advised of our disease status, and were told that all sandwiches could be made gluten-free, but the fryer is shared and has cross contamination. They gladly substituted fruit for the fries in my son's kids meal and made a grilled cheese on GF bread. I had a reuben on GF mock-rye bread. The sandwiches were good and the visit was pleasant. Today my son and I both are sick with all of our individual symptoms that are consistent with gluten exposure. The only change to our daily routines was trying this restaurant after reading it was celiac friendly. Please do not trust the GF options here if you have a medical reason for avoiding gluten. I will, however, recommend it to my non-celiac friends. Everything else about this restaurant was excellent and I cannot emphasize that enough. This rating is solely based upon its safety for Celiacs.

    Service was a bit slow for breakfast and the prices seemed a bit high for the quality. My GF French toast was 3 small pieces and nothing else. We have bought their takeout sandwiches and they have been amazing. I was very disappointed with the service as it wasn't what I expected after such a great experience on the takeout.

    This is a great place to go and eat! The waitstaff is great, the owner was so nice! The food was so good! I had the "D town" reuben, amazing! Their fries looked so good, but they are not done in a dedicated fryer. I talked to the owner about getting a separate counter top fryer to do their fresh cut fries. He was very receptive to the idea and is extremely conscious of the needs of a gluten free customer. He has a nephew that is gluten free. They have a dedicated workspace for preparing the gluten free menu items. Yes, there is an upcharge for the bread, but it's very good bread and they don't skimp on the ingredients of the sandwich because it's smaller bread. I would not hesitate to go back there again and again!

    They are a bit pricey but the sandwiches are a good splurge. I like to buy the meats by the pound and make my own. More bang for the buck.

    Very good place to get a great sandwich on great gf bread. They use No more belly aching breads. Had the Reuben sandwich on gf rye. It was great. Had a cup of soup to go with it. It feels great to feel normal when ordering out. There was an up charge for the bread, however it is the normal considering the cost of the bread. I'm more than willing to pay it.

    NOT budget friendly! Ordered 2 gluten free sandwiches and was charged a surcharge of $5.00 which blew me away. I can understand if a business feels like they need to cover the additional cost of the bread, but trying to make a large profit on it is ridiculous. This extra $5.00 is for the small size pieces of bread and not the regular size pieces you can get in an Udi's loaf from Costo. I'm disappointed because it was exciting to get a real deli sandwich out to eat, but I cannot support an establishment that chooses to take advantage of people who happen to have a disease.

    Food is good however, they charge an extra $2.50 per GLUTEN FREE sandwich which was recently raised from 2.00 per GF sandwich!!!! This a an absolute ridiculous fee!! You can buy a whole loaf of GF bread for that price at a retail cost! It is a complete rip off and they need to stop taking advantage of people with allergies! I do not recommend this place because it is bad business to take advantage of people like this!

    Food was good but they charge an extra $2.50 per sandwich and $3.50 for French Toast to make it gluten free!!! I can buy a huge loaf of Udi's gf bread at Costco for $6.00. I feel like they are taking advantage of people who have Celiac and want to eat out. No gf soups and fries are fried with gluten food so no fries for us. Also the waitress suggested rye bread when she thought the we're out of gf bread :(

    This place is really, really good. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the gluten free diet and which menu items are safe for a celiac. I highly recommend the State Side Deli.

    I was very impressed. You can get most sandwiches on gf bread and there are choices of gf bread. I've not run into that at a restaurant before.

    SO Much more than just a deli. Breakfast Anytime, huge burgers, fresh salads, soups, desserts, dinner specials, I was expecting a little sandwich shop when I walked in, but little did I know there was a dining room with the most helpful staff I've seen in a while. Apparently StateSide is partnered with a local Gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free bakery called No More Bellyaching in Brighton, MI. They've got a variety of different gluten-free breads and menu items. Even gluten-free desserts! There is something for everyone here, I have never been disappointed with a trip to StateSide Deli & Restaurant
