    Gluten free options are available but menu is pretty limited overall. They offer things like GF chicken tenders but do not use a dedicated fryer, which is annoying. Update - I ate here today and got sick probably due to cross contamination. Not celiac friendly.

    Cob salad was great. Chicken tenders were nasty. Has down east.

    This was probably the best gf experience I have had. I started with nachos, and then had gf chicken fingers which were amazing. For my meal I had a cheeseburger with a gf bun which was the best gf bun I’ve ever had.

    They have loads of options for Gluten intolerant. Gf buns by request, entrees, etc. and staff is always willing to help find options. I can do fine with no dairy as well.

    Crappy udis crust does not make an entire restaurant celiac friendly. It also was very child friendly. My little guy had a burger w no bun (no American cheese in the place either). He didn't like it. I had a bunless BBQ chic sandwich that barely had any BBQ sauce on it. Very underwhelming for us. My husband and daughter, who don't have good allergies enjoyed their meals

    Their "gluten free" options are, for the most part, fried in the same oil as gluten items. So really, not gluten free at all. GF pizza was ok I guess, but if I hadn't asked about cross contamination I would have gotten sick.

    No dedicated menu, but a lot of options were GF optional. As far as GF pizza goes (4 year old with celiac), he didn't like it. The staff was extremely accommodating and took half price off because of that.

    We were searching for a safe spot for lunch for my daughter. The reviews were spot on! Tasty, fresh food and very accommodating. My daughter loved her GF pizza! I thought it was delicious too!

    Staff was very accommodating to my allergy. Was served by Sierra, who knew of there not being a dedicated fryer. The bun was good, but it disintegrated under the sandwich I ordered.

    Food was fantastic. The buns that they use for burgers and sandwiches are freaking amazing. I didn't try the pizza, but they prepare and cook them separate from the regular-crust pizzas. Lots of choices of ciders. The only downside is that they don't have a dedicated fryer.

    GF pizza is very good also GF rolls for sandwiches and burgers. Pizza made in conventional oven as opposed to brick oven for safety purposes. Great wine selection recommend the Bread & Butter Pino Noir!!

    Pretty good place to eat. Fries are cooked in a shared fryer. GF buns are not good and fall apart easily.
