    The Birchmere is an amazing concert venue, but eat beforehand. Despite advertising a gluten free menu it is not even gluten “friendly” let alone celiac safe.GF Menu listed fries, homemade chips, tortilla chips as GF but they use a shared fryer. Chili on GF menu was made with beer. Spoke to chef before it was busy and he confirmed server can handle GF requests and the menu had many meat/vegetable offerings that are GF. Meals came out with cornbread and sauce. When I questioned the sauce, server said it was au jus, not gravy, and GF. 5 minutes later she took the meal and brought out another one without the sauce. That being said, this one is on us. The warning signs were there but we were eager to enjoy an amazing show with dinner. If you plan to attend a show there I recommend not eating there. But the bar has wine, mixed drinks, hard cider on tap and bottles of Redbridge.
