    They'll make you a gf grilled cheese even though it's no longer on the menu. The lobster mac and cheese (or plain) is so yummy! Lots of lunch/dinner options, usually a dessert or two for gf, friendly staff, fun atmosphere with live music sometimes. Update - they've renovated and changed up the menu, not quite as many options as before but still very accommodating!

    Was assured my meal was gf, specifically asked and pointed to it on the menu and said "gluten free" and asked again when put in front of me, ended up having to rush home to one of the worst relapses I've had in a long time. Do NOT risk it with this place, expensive too. Not worth it at all.

    I was assured that my meal would be safe, then was brought a salad with croutons. I didn't see them, tasted the salad, asked, and was told they had gluten. The server assured me he had written gluten free on my ticket and whisked the plate away and brought it back - yes the same contaminated plate - with a new salad. I left, hungry. The nicest thing I can say is that the manager's apology was charming. I hope I am not sick tomorrow. Not safe for celiac.

    Wow! I found this place as a place to stop for dinner on our way back from a weekend in Maine headed for Ct. What a gem! Relaxed, upscale pub atmosphere with dedicated gluten free menus. Our whole family had a fantastic meal. My hubby( not gf) had the strawberry fields salad and chicken pot pie. He said the salad was the best he's ever had and the pot pie was "amazing". My sons had both gf and non gf versions of Mac and cheese. Both loved it. I had the grass fed burger which was delicious and satisfying. The staff is very attentive, friendly and knowledgable . We will make this a regular stop!!!

    Haven't been to this place in many years but it's still the same great atmosphere and the food was better than I remember. I will caution you though, this place is definitely on the upper end of a $$ than the single $ rating it advertises.

    Food was incredible. The prices ranged from a $10 to $32 for a steak. I got the pan blacken scallops. It was probably the best meal I've had since I was diagnosed with Celiacs. My wife who is not gluten free was jealous of my meal but loved her burger. We have a high energy three year old and the staff was very accommodating. All in all a very pleasant experience.

    Good meal! Separate GF menu that included Macaroni and Cheese, osso bucco and some steaks, chicken, and seafood. Tasty and worth the visit.

    I don't know who gave this a 1$ amount but we had 2 mushroom burgers, no fries-chips, water to drink and it came to $32.00 (with tip). That is high for a burger.

    Separate GF menu helps wait staff recognize your needs. Portion sizes are large, and they have GF bread for sandwiches and GF dessert options. I already picked out what I will have for dinner when I return!

    Love going here. The hostess actually asks if anyone in the party needs a gf menu before you're seated! That never happens. The gf menu is great. I love the mac&cheese and cuban sandwich on Udi's bread. They offer so many gf options it's hard to choose.
