    We ate at Dollywood during Labor Day weekend. It’s the one place my husband feels is safe to eat. He got the GF bacon cheeseburger and fries, which he loved. The food was great, but, the wait time was over 30 minutes. We had a party of 6 and several parties of 2 and 4 were seated in front of us. We ended up splitting up and were seating quickly.

    Ate here with the family during our day at Dollywood. They have a GF menu with salads and sandwiches like burgers or grilled chicken. Also their fries are only cooked with other fries so no worries about cross contamination. It was nice to feel like normal and eat a cheeseburger and fries like everyone else! Tasted pretty good and decent prices for being in the park. Located at the front of the park. They were open to accommodating various food allergies.

    Chose to eat here the day we visited Dollywood. They have a separate gf menu. The waitress was very knowledgeable in menu items. I had the cheeseburger and fries and it was delicious. Even the gf bun was very good.

    I'm a celiac and didn't get sick. My wife and I had the gf reubens. The bun was Udis which always tends to be dry. Dedicated fryer.

    Staff is knowledgeable. Ask for Chef Robert. Separate prep area and food. Very safe.

    They had a completely separate gluten friendly menu but had options that weren’t available for the season, making choices even more limited . They did have udi’s bun but mine was stale. It was standard theme park fare and really disappointing that it was our only option if we wanted an actual meal. There is really a huge lack of options here so I guess this is better than nothing!

    Everyone very knowledgeable about GF menu and let me know that there was a separate kitchen for gluten free item preparation. There were lots of GF menu options. My son had Reuben and fries. He loved it! My son has celiac..no sickness at all! We would definitely recommend!!!

    My favorite place and I wish I had gotten to eat there everyday of our trip! They were so careful (everything cooked in a separate area) and no one got sick. They had a great menu with lots of options including a Reuben on a GF bun with fries fried in a separate fryer. It was SO good!!! I haven't had a Reuben on a bun in 10 years. My kids shared the GF grilled sandwich and everyone else at the table was happy with their non GF meals!

    Very happy with this place. They had a dedicated fryer for the fries. I got a chicken sandwich on an Udi's bun and didn't get sick at all. The staff at Dollywood took a course on gluten free meals so I'd feel safe recommending this for all celiacs.

    I ordered lunch twice from the Front Porch Cafe and it was an awesome experience both times. First lunch was a chicken sandwich on an Udis bun with fries. Second lunch was a Cobb type salad with bacon and chicken. The staff was helpful and friendly. I spoke to the chef on my first day and he was very helpful and friendly.
