GF options indicated on the menu. They have a dedicated fryer just tell them you have an allergy. I did and didn't get sick and I am extremely sensitive.
absolutely the best fish and chips that I've ever had which glutenfree! try the smoke cheddar fritters which has mango an apple shaving with delish reduction... even this sangria is! fantastic service! go there!!!!!!! yum!!!
Extensive gf menu, servers are knowledgeable. They have a dedicated fryer and take precautions to avoid any cross contact. We have had multiple good experiences here with our daughter who has celiac disease.
Great menus. Safe for GF. Grass feed beef
Servers seem aware (ours mentioned before that the owner is familiar with celiacs). Extensive menu; food is good.
Large selection of gluten free options!
The menu has tons of options including gf bread, onion rings, etc. the staff was super cool and accommodating. They have a dedicated area to prepare food. They take it seriously there.
Plenty of GF options. The foods not the greatest but it's good enough.
My 11-year old son has celiac disease so we found Tavern in the Square on the Find Me Gluten Free app. We were visiting Salem for the day and needed a place for lunch for our party of 6. The gluten-free menu options were extensive, my son was thrilled to try onion rings for the first time. We all loved our meal, our server was attentive to the gluten-free needs of my son, our food was hot and delicious. Great place to eat with lots of gluten-free options.
The menu is extensive with so many choices you just don't typically find gluten-free. The fried pickles were delicious, as were the turkey tips and avocado steak salad. Our trio agreed it was one of the best gf meals we've had! And the staff was fun, accommodating and knowledgeable. We'll be looking to come back some day.
Excellent GF choices! Great menu. My CD son had a burger & fries since they have a dedicated fryer.
Our server had excellent knowledge of what was GF and when she wasn't sure she checked. 90%of the menu is GF or can be adapted great location and atmosphere. A++!!!
Our family ate hear while on vacation. We ordered 4 GF meals and loved each one. There are many choices and properly prepared. Highly recommend.
Huge gluten-free menu and vet large portions! Gluten-free beer also. Definitely going back!
This place has an EXTENSIVE GF menu! So there are a ton of choices. Also, you can get French fries, sweet potato fries, tator tots, fried pickles, onion rings -- all the tasty fried foods that you typically cannot get! We had a burger & fries and it was great. Everyone loved their meals (steak tips, turkey tips, etc.). I would have given this place 5 stars but the one GF dessert which was the Greek Yogurt Brûlée was awful. We ordered 2 for the table and out of 7 people No One liked it. It was bad -- just like eating some Greek yogurt from the supermarket. So I don't recommend doing GF dessert there -- other than that everything was very good (drinks, appetizers, entrees and service). So all they need to do is offer a better GF dessert and this place would be 5 stars!
Great food, menu is well marked with foods that have a gluten free option
Much improved! A better menu, staff better informed and pricing is fair. I would avoid the Sunday Brunch, but any other time is a great experience😃
Lots of choices that you don't normally get - like onion rings. I had to have my mom taste mine to make sure they were different than the regular ones (because they were so good it was hard to tell!). The part that could be improved is the kids menu - a gluten free pizza or pasta would be great - or even gf/df chicken tenders.
We have 2 kids (9 and 12) and an adult with celiac. The Tavern has GF buns, fish and chips, and pizza!! This is a huge GF menu. They have outstanding sides Including fries, tater tots and everything almost that is on the normal menu! They messed up once on a GF meal and they comped it and immediately corrected the issue. However, we have been there many times with outstanding service. They take the GF menu very serious and this is our go to restaurant along with Woodman's in Essex!
This is a great restaurant for groups because the menu is extensive and offers something for everyone. I love the fried pickles, they are my weakness
They sometimes have a dedicate fryer for gluten free. Call ahead and make sure. Had gf fried pickles and buffalo chicken !
Contrary to another post, tavern in the square does NOT have gluten free friers. Went once when I was first gluten free and the server told me they had a separate fryer. She must not go in the kitchen. Ever. Went back a second time and asked for fries after telling our server I was gluten free. She stopped me and said they only have one frier and it is not gluten free. The second server was wonderful to mention this and also double and triple check with the manager. The friers are most certainly NOT gluten free. Would give them great ratings based on second waitresses' commitment to accuracy but the first waitress who made this awful mistake drags down the whole gluten free endeavor. The team needs to be better educated on what cross contamination really means.
I used to eat/drink here all the time, and one day they came out with a GF menu...and that was the last time i will ever eat there. They have no idea what they're doing in terms of GF. Served me items from GF menu that were the regular version. I sat forever for the waitress to come back so I could question it while my friend ate her meal. The waitress was clueless, the manager came out, took the food away, put more in...it was a whole embarrassing ordeal. By the time my dry chicken breast sandwich came out my friend was done eating. They didn't offer to comp anything or do anything for us. Bottom line-if you truly have to be GF, don't eat here.
Great options we had the nachos and my wife had a burger with fries all friers are gf now! They were great and our server dan was great!
I visited the tavern over this past weekend. My husband and I almost did not go because of the review on here, but I looked up reviews on other sites and they seemed pretty good. I'm so glad that we gave it a chance! There were several appetizers, sandwiches, meals, and sides to chose from. We had the classic nachos and I had a cheeseburger on a gluten free bun with a side of roasted vegetables. French fries are not made in a dedicated fryer, but with all the other options I was okay with that.
I informed my server I was GF due to Celiac. She was knowledgeable and informed.. stated she would have items prepared in dedicated fryer. The onion rings were on the menu as gf.. I asked about the batter and they were prepared with crushed potato chips. The manager brought out my meal certifying it was prepared gf.
The service was excellent & they were very cautious with making sure to note the Gluten allergy. I did not have any Celiac Disease reactions at all after eating here so I know they are very careful with not cross contaminating. I highly recommend this restaurant!! It was the first time in years I was able to eat onion rings and they were amazing!
They have the best clam chowder!
1. Had gluten free beer! (Glutenberg) Not just cider. Cider is cider, not beer. 2. Tons of GF options- gf buns, gf pizza, gf fried food- all cooked in a separate friolater to keep safe from cross contamination 3. Waitstaff told dedicated manager who made sure he watched and then delivered the food. Food was great! Felt safe and was like everyone else, able to eat just about everything. (Like gluten food didn't even exist.)
I have eaten here several times before games and the staff is always knowledgeable about allergies. They have an extensive GF menu, and can make almost anything GF. They have Udi's buns, pizza crust, beer, and a dedicated fryer. They also have GF onion rings and battered chicken fingers (however these do contain dairy). Since the fryer isn't safe for my dairy allergy, they cook fries and tater tots in the oven for me and they're just as good! I've yet to be disappointed with their food, I highly recommend stopping here!
Easily the best GF menu I've ever had. Probably 30+ options, good food, great service. Even the fried stuff is GF! Poutine, fish n chips, calamari, burgers, etc. Celiac friendly, too. P.S. Manager makes a special appearance when they serve a plate for someone with celiac/allergy to make sure you feel comfortable.
Great experience here! My daughter and I have a gluten and dairy allergy. The waitress was very helpful if she didn't know the answer she had the manager come help us. They were VERY knowledgeable about food allergies and cross contamination. GF rolls were good, burger a little bland. Was able to have onion rings for the first time since I was diagnosed 6 years ago! I'd definitely go back!
Great gluten free options. French fries, nachos and more.
Our waitress did state their fryer was not dedicated and cross contamination was likely. For that reason, we did not try as many of the options as we may have otherwise. However, our food and drinks were great. And despite the fryer issue there were still plenty of options to choose from.
I had a great experience here. We went as a group of four (3 of us have celiac and one eats gluten free to prevent the rest of us getting contaminated) and ordered fried calamari, crab fritters, pizza, and two sandwiches. Everything was DELICIOUS and nobody had any reaction.
Great selection. Knowledgable staff. Loved the fried pickles and turkey burger. The only place I've been able to find turkey burger that's truly GF. Plus the GF buns are great.
I was really excited to go here. After a long trip with no gf options available I was ready for a big meal. I talked to the server about my intolerance (extremely sensitive celiac) and they seemed to know what they where doing. I was so happy I decided to order and angry orchard cider while waiting for my food. The drink came out and without thinking I took a quick gulp from the cup... It was beer.....iv been sick for a week now... Thanks guys! ..... I hope this business does a better job in the future of educating their staff on celiac disease and how to bring cider to those who order it .... Great food but if you're a celiac watch out!!
I had a great meal here after arriving at North Station en route to a destination with questionable GF options. Everyone I interacted with (hostess, server, manager) was extremely knowledgable about gluten free options and cross contamination and it's clearly something they take seriously. I had a more in-depth conversation with the manager, Sal, about kitchen practices and he inspired a lot of confidence. Plus, lunch was delicious. (I had the Southwestern BLT with sweet potato fries.) Definitely worthy of a return visit next time I'm in the area!
This is our go-to when eating out with our Celiac kids for special occasions. It's a little pricey, but so worth it! GF chicken fingers are fresh and juicy, GF fish and chips are amazing, GF fried calamari - where else can you find that?! Service has been slow on occasion. Bartenders (when we've been sans-kids) are awesome. Just for the food options and quality, this place deserves 5 stars!
