Very accommodating in my GF order. The GF bun is not dairy free, but I have no issue with that.

Great atmosphere for a burger place, and a nicely appointed bar. They have a nice selection of custom drinks and also make spiked and virgin hand spun milkshakes.

Across the street is the convention center, and it is a short walk from the many hotels in the area!

Outside seating was available when I came here, but it was raining, so we ate inside.

If you want a nice upscale place for lunch or dinner, check it out!

The food was absolutely delicious. The staff was knowledgeable and when there was a question, the chef was helpful. There was NOT a GF menu and the fyer is not dedicated. So it was a huge disappointment when our 13 y/o celiac couldn't get French fries for a side (it had to be a salad).

Service was superb! Waiter let me know that they had gluten free buns and that they take extra precautions with allergies. Burger was delicious and the milkshake was also amazing. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone craving burgers and shakes.

WOW! Everyone was super nice and accommodating. I have multiple food allergies. The server noted them down, smiled and said, “No problem.” (What an amazing feeling!) The food itself was tasty. I was able to get fries because they had a dedicated fryer. I also got a burger with a gluten-free bun and splurged with a milkshake. Will definitely return!

Service was great, I got a grilled cheese on a gluten free bun which was delicious. They were knowledgeable about Celiac, and warned me that the fries had their own fryer, but it was directly next to a fryer that fries other things. I took the risk and I don’t think I had any gluten symptoms, but my symptoms are hit or miss. Fries and aioli were delicious, as was my grilled cheese. Would recommend! They’re great at accommodating for gluten free.

The staff was very knowledgeable about celiac disease. Only thing is fries aren’t celiac safe and the waitress clearly expressed that. I definitely recommend!

Server did a ton of checking for us to ensure no gluten. No dedicated fryer but the burgers were awesome. Gotta watch the sauce on the broccoli, has soy.

They have a “dedicated fryer” but the manager was very informative and up front that anything in those oils may still have cross contamination. Their shakes are also not cross contamination free. However if you inform you have Celiac disease, they can accommodate your food being made separately. The bun was surprisingly moist and the burger was AMAZING!

The staff was very accommodating and they provide gluten free hamburger buns, which tasted great. Some risk of cross contamination, but they are knowledgeable about what items are a risk.

NOT a dedicated fryer (unlike prior comments suggest). Otherwise a great experience, the manager and bar staff knew exactly what to do for gluten free and celiac. Be a bit wary about the salad dressings.

Very tasty burgers. Offer GF bun and the fries are cooked in "beef tallow" aka animal fat so they are GF as well. Kitchen cross-contamination worries me though as I felt slightly sick the rest of the day.

Knowledgeable staff. I had the cheeseburger and it was amazing!! GF bun was amazing and appeared to be house-made. Zero issues with cross-contamination. I had the side house salad as there is no dedicated GF fryer.
