    This Rhode Islander visited with family who raved about The Dotted Lime before we went there. It is their favorite place when they are in the area. Could not believe that any restaurant could possibly be totally gluten free anywhere! Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and especially the Cinnamon Buns that we took to go. Had them for breakfast the next morning. Can't wait to go back next weekend when I am in town again. Well worth getting off Rt. 65 for fantastic food.

    I went 30 minutes out of my way to come here today. It was amazing. It’s not every day you find a place that has food this good, and won’t glutenize a Celiac. I would go an hour out of my way to eat here again. I’m sad I don’t live closer. Do yourself a favor and go!

    Best gf food restaurant ever!! We love this place! They have the best cinnamon rolls so save room! The meals are amazing and you would never know this is a dedicated gf restaurant because the place is packed! There is always a line but don't let that stop you. Worth the drive and the wait!!

    Everything on the menu is gluten free! Great variety. Food is prepared fresh and much of the meat is sourced locally. Some of their baked goods and other items are also vegan. Everything I have tried has been delicious (sandwiches, waffles, biscuits, muffins, cinnamon rolls)- I honestly don’t know how they do it. Fun atmosphere, with great service. 10/10 recommend to anyone, food allergies or not, but if you are GF you must try!

    I have eaten here several times over the past 6 months, no bad reactions, food is always fresh and tasty and super friendly staff! Seeing as I live in Illinois and my son and dil live in Columbia, it's pretty amazing how often I do eat here! Thanks for being a yummy safe place to eat! The pineapple mango muffins have been my favorite!😁

    I visited TDL while visiting family. I’ve had Celiac for 5 years and where I’m from, there are no dedicated GF restaurants. What a find! Amazing food. Absolutely delicious. Columbia, how blessed you are. What I’d give to have the Lime in VA. My gluten eating family loved it as well. The Lime is for all!

    The Dotted Lime deserves more than 5 stars. We stopped here on a road trip. We all have food allergies. They catered to our needs and nobody got any sort of cross contamination. Some people think gluten, dairy, etc free foods don't taste as good. Guess again. I'd take food from The Dotted Lime every day even if I didn't have allergies.

    THE best and ONLY 100% gluten free restaurant in the greater NASHVILLE area. Owner has severe celiac and actually gets it. She understands most of us have other food allergies so they offer tons of options Corn, Soy, Dairy, Nut free. There’s no nuts at all in their facility FYI. Lots of great vegan options too. They take it serious enough to even have a sign posted outside stating that their patrons have food allergies so don’t bring in anything from the outside, including baby food! It isn’t your typical GF place where all they have are sweets with a few sandwiches. Their dinners are incredibly savory with hearty meals and locally sourced meats. My husband said his steak last night was the best steak he’s eaten out-even better than his $100 Craft Steak we ate in Vegas. Please head down there and support this family! The entire family runs the restaurant and you will not only fall in love with the food and reasonable prices but you’ll fall in love with them. God bless them and all the hard work and sacrifices they are making to create this wonderful place for us to enjoy! She drives in every day from their mini farm many miles away to start baking even before the sun comes up. The kids help waitress and run the kitchen. They try very hard to only source the best ingredients and not pass on the expense. They even fry with sunflower oil which is double the cost of the crap canola oil that most places use. You will walk out of there so happy and feel completely normal again from a society/dining stand point. Bring friends so you can share plates! God bless the sweet owners and the difference they are making for others!! It is so greatly appreciated.

    We ended up eating here for lunch and dinner. Everything we had was amazing! If you get a chance to go for dinner, we highly recommend it. It is a table service meal with a completely different menu from lunch. Just make sure you make a reservation! A perfect meal - we were just passing through and will definitely miss this place!

    Well worth the drive from Nashville! Great food - real biscuits. Has some home cooking and health food too. Several dairy free options as well. Cinnamon rolls are to die for - completely allergy free. Don’t know how they do it! Dedicated facility - safe for even super sensitive celiacs!

    THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST!!! I drive an hour from Nashville often because it’s so good. Their Saturday brunch with an bacon & cheese panzzino, multiple cinnamon rolls, and chocolate milk is my go-to. Their pancakes are the biggest and fluffiest I’ve ever seen. And the family who owns it is so great! It’s work noting again: their cinnamon rolls are to DIE for!!

    This place is REALLY good. It's becoming one of my favorites throughout America. It's all gluten free, sandwiches, wraps, baked goods, drinks, smoothies, ALL really delicious stuff, and it doesn't feel gluten free which I think is a plus, it's not made to be a focal point so you feel like a normal person lol. They have healthy options and comfort food options. Everything I've had was delicious. The vibe is cool also

    The food was amazing with no fear of cross contamination because it's a dedicated facility, 100% gf. Sandwiches, salads, soup, wraps, baked goods. The only drawback was the long line & they ran out of sourdough just after noon. I'm from Michigan or I'd eat here all the time.

    The Dotted Lime is a dedicated, gluten-free restaurant that will also safely accommodate any other allergen. The food is local and delicious! Try breakfast, lunch or any of their desserts.
