Got their gluten free calamari and a Caesar salad with chicken- was delicious!! A little pricey but definitely worth it in my opinion & didn’t have any symptoms afterwards. Will definitely be ordering from there again

Once again The Charles did not disappoint. Treated my husband for our anniversary for lunch. Had the steak frites came out with a fresh salad green with a light dressing and a flatiron steak grilled just right on top of a garlic aioli sauce with chopped herbs and french fries. Delicious. To top I had apple pie creme brulee. Everything made fresh gluten free and delicious

We went to this restaurant because my daughter has celiac and they have a great menu with a dedicated fryer and most items can be made GF. My daughter was super excited for the options. They brought GF bread and she ordered the kids slider on gf roll. Unfortunatley, despite notifying the waiter and asking about each item, they put a non-GF chocolate chip cookie on her plate. She took a bite of it before we even had a chance to ask so she will deal with the repercussions. The manager didnt quite understand the significance of this for her. We will have to think carefully about a future visit.

This place is just the best. Their food is delicious, wait staff and kitchen are very knowledgeable about gluten allergies. There are many options which are clearly marked on the menu and there are dedicated friers (when we visited early 2022 they were actually only frying gluten free foods to avoid cross contamination). The chef even developed their own gluten free pastry! My celiac partner has had no issues the two times we visited and I (non gluten free partner eating the gluten free options) could not have been happier with the quality of the food. Highly recommend

The chef is gluten free and makes many items that aren't typically offered gluten free and alot of items are available gluten free without normal bread accompaniments. Excellent food and lots of options!

GF options clearly marked on the menu. I got a toasted GF roll with the appetizers and fish + chips for my meal - everything delicious and safe for this celiac! Nice outdoor dining tent right now, with some space heaters for cold weather too.
