the Gatlinburg TGIFridays was not ideal for Celiac. wait staff not very knowledgeable about GF and the online menu is not available here. basically a burger - they DID have GF buns but a SHARED fryer (not safe) so NO fries- got broccoli but had to pay extra. was OK

After talking to staff we decided to eat here. Waiter was very accommodating and understood our need when we told him my daughter had celiac. She ate only the sirloin steak and mashed potatoes. No problems with it at all.

our waiter didn’t know what gluten was, so he gave us a bun with gluten. luckily my mom was able to see it was not the bun we ordered, but we were not refunded or even offered another burger with an alternative bun.

Contrary to previous reviews for this location—there is NOT a dedicated fryer for fries! I specifically asked the server and she said everything is fried in the same fryer! So, please disregard the reviews that state otherwise. There was a surprisingly good “gluten friendly” menu, however, with salads, steaks, chicken, and a few sides. I had the sizzling chicken & cheese with mashed potatoes and it was great.

My family and I ate here while on vacation on October 20, 2018. I have a gluten sensitivity, so I have eaten at the Friday's in my hometown, but they do not have a dedicated fryer. Our waitress, Brittany, was awesome! She was super friendly and let me know they had a dedicated fryer for their gluten sensitive guests!. My daughter laughed at me because I was so happy to be able to eat french fries!! I also had the regular cheeseburger on a gluten free bun. It was absolutely wonderful! Can't wait to go back!

I had a great experience there! My 12yo and I have Celiac Disease. I ordered the salmon with super veggies and coleslaw, she ordered the grilled chicken sandwich with a lettuce wrap and mashed potatoes. They were all great tasting, grilled to perfection and you can still get the fries which are fried in a separate fryer and a gf bun. There are many options and our waitress was VERY knowledgeable and patient. Highly recommended!!! Definitely will have to go back.

Ate here on August 10, 2017 while on vacation. The server was very knowledgeable regarding the gluten free options. They have a gluten "sensitive" menu with several salads, burgers with GF buns, and several entrees. Of course, their menu has the "not a gluten free environment" disclaimer like most other restaurants. I have Celiac disease and did not have any issues with their GF food which tasted very good. I would definitely eat at TGIFridays again.

Items listed as gluten sensitive on the menu, no separate menu. They offer a gf bun. They offer Beyond Burger. That’s what I got. It was a thick burger and tasted real good. No dedicated fryer so I didn’t get fries. I am also dairy free so there wasn’t much to choose from. They offered fresh fruit as a side but I declined.

I got there expecting many gluten free things. The website has many gluten free sides. However, when we got there, none of the sides were gluten free. They do have a very thick gluten free bun. I got a single burger. So far, no contamination. I am very disappointed because I got a burger that is not the best, and no side in case I was still hungry.

The menu items were marked for Gluten Sensitive, but when I told the waitress that I had Celiacs, she made sure to write down what I couldn’t have and double checked it with me. I ended up ordering the house salad with no cheese or croutons, but added salmon to it (I am currently dairy free too), which was really good. I didn’t even need to put dressing in it.

I got the triple decker donut cheeseburger after being assured from our server that it was GLUTEN FREE! I’ll tell you I’ve never destroyed a bathroom like I did that TGIF’s- sorry in advance. I’ve never had such an instant reaction to gluten like that where it began dripping down my leg. If you are struggling with constipation this is better than miralax.
