The food was absolutely amazing, but after leaving the restaurant I could feel my stomach swelling and got sick shortly after. If you don’t have celiac, you may be okay, but if you have celiac I would recommend eating elsewhere!

Menu clearly marked. I had the braised short ribs and they were really good. The mashed potatoes that came with them weren’t great. The staff was very helpful and attentive. There were no opportunities to have special orders made like some of the other reviews suggested and I was a little disappointed by that. It was good... just not quite up to the reviews I read here.

We ate at the bar and still received excellent service and excellent food. The chef came out to speak with me and made me some toast to go with the roasted bre, it looked better than the gluten folks ate. Rich our bartender was super nice. Good drinks too

Beautiful gluten free baked brie
GF Shrimp and Grits. I'd say it was better than it looks. I liked it.

I wound up eating here three times because it was convenient (was staying at the hotel there) and tasty. I didn't have particularly helpful servers--they ranged from a friendly okay on the mention of Celiac to barely a nod--but the menu was nice, and I never got sick. I had delicious shrimp and grits, the sampler plate where you pick 4 sides from a nice gf selection, and a yummy Bibb salad. It was actually one of the better gf menus I saw while in Charleston.

Yes they know what gluten is and can help you navigate the menu. Great spot if you want a burger without a bun or a salad without croutons, but nothing gluten free special in my opinion.

No set gf menu, but tell the host and they will send out a server who knows which dishes the chef can make gf. The list they gave me had a nice range of options with different entree types including a vegetarian one. I ended up with the Roasted Half Chicken, which came out with a potato and goat cheese gratin and a local vegetable preparation - very good meal, large portion.

Excellent gluten free options! No separate menu, but very easy to find something if you ask up front. Very friendly service as well, and reasonably priced with beautiful atmosphere, to boot.
