    If I could give zero stars I would. I planned put my whole trip and we went out of our way to find The Gerald. When I asked about Gluten Free they said they were no longer catering to gluten free diners, but they may have a few things left. Should have been my cue to leave, but we stayed and had the worst food ever. Not sure how you mess up a BLT, but it was terrible.

    BLT was delicious. The waitress mentioned that all the breading on the chicken was gluten free. Definitely recommend for Celiacs!!

    Fabulous. As we walked in, I took a look at their kitchen and saw a waffle. Uh oh, I thought, this isn't going to be great. I'm celiac, and very sensitive. So when we sat down, I launched into my usual spiel to our waitress. "I heard you guys were good at gluten free. I'm celiac, which means that—" "I'm celiac, too" the waitress said, and went on to explain how they keep things separate in the kitchen, the waffle was one of the only things that contained gluten, etc. So, in short, awesome place.

    Excellent service! The chef has celiac so there are no cross contamination issues! The wings are to die for and they have legitimate gluten free bread to dip with the Mac and cheese!

    Almost everything on the menu is gluten free or can me made gluten free. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and nice. The macaroni and cheese is AMAZING! We have been here many times and we are never disappointed.

    Food was great! Love the Mac and cheese. Haven't found any that good since I went gluten free. The poutine was awesome. I'm from Texas and had not tried it before. I will be coming back while I am here in vacation.

    Incredible food and service. Chef is gfree, and he was super accommodating. Almost every menu item can be adapted to be gfree, so there are a ton of options!

    The Gerald has recently revamped its menu to include many gluten-free options. So far I've had the fish and chips and a mac and cheese special. Both were delicious.
