We asked the a manager to walk us through the salad bar and sides that were gluten free. She started giving us a list which included cheese, deli meats, potato salad and asparagus for the salad bar. Then they brought hot sides to the table and we had to ask her to come back and tell us about those. She told us the rice, French fries and cheese bread was gluten free. I questioned the fries and asked what else was fries in the same oil. She said nothing. My boys (both with celiac disease) spared no time and dug in. About 5 minutes later she came back and told us the fries were not gluten free. We left with a $200 bill and 2 sick kids.

The food here was terrible and overpriced! With the facade of a fancy restaurant, they served canned beans, bland cheese, and raw vegetables. Definitely not vegetarian friendly, but they have a lot of meat —which we didn’t try because the salad buffet was terrible so we didn’t feel like paying double to eat meat. There are gluten free options, but the food is simply not worth paying for. I don’t understand the hype at all!!

I ate there and it was delicious. Didn’t get glutened. However, the staff did not walk me through the salad bar. My waitress gave me a sheet of the GF options but the salad bar items were not labeled. A manager went through the salad bar with me once I asked.

The tabbouleh contains gluten and it was next to the GF mozzarella balls. I found pieces of tabbouleh in the mozzarella for example. I’m a new Celiac so I’m sure this is very common.

The meat is GF and the fried bananas and cheese bread. I ate a lot of those ;)

Free cheesy bread when you sit down which is gluten free, amazing salad bar filled with mostly gf options, all meats are gf as well. Pricey but a cool experience, worth it for a nice dinner out in Detroit.

What a fantastic find in Fort Worth. We were visiting our son and needed a safe, delicious, place for dinner.

The place was very busy which would usually make me very nervous. But the salad bar items were all clearly labeled with gluten/gluten free. Our waitress knew exactly which meats I could have and which to avoid. And, she even remembered at dessert time, to point out the options that were available to me.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience. We will definitely be going back the next time we are in The Fort.

Visited here for the first time yesterday. The food was really good. I've never seen a salad bar that well labeled. Every item was marked either gluten free or that it contained gluten, no room for misunderstandings. And the waiters come around to the tables offering pieces of meat off of big skewers. All in all very good. Can highly recommend!

Great food, many GF options. They clarified for me what is and isn’t GF. Most food is, including the Brazilian bread balls, the mashed potatoes, the fried bananas, and all the meat!
