    The menu was not only well marked but had a wealth of gluten free options from pizza to more upscale entrees. Had a lovely margarita pizza. Great place.

    There weren’t many GF options on the brunch/lunch menu. My daughter, who has celiac, decided on a cheeseburger on GF bread. When asking the waitress if it would be safe, explaining that this was for an allergy, she confirmed it would be GF. The waitress then proceeded to ask if she wanted fries or sweet potato fries. I inquired about a dedicated frier which they do not have so I had to ask for GF side options, again emphasizing this was for an allergy. My daughter’s cheeseburger came out, served on a regular bun. We had to send back the burger and ask for a new one, not just the original burger places on different bread. The next burger came out on the right bread but without the cheese. The third time was a charm. After it was all said and done, none of the food was great. I would not return again due to the food and the GF experience.

    This is my favorite restaurant in Boone. Their menu is clearly labeled with gluten-free options. However, keep in mind that their fryer is not dedicated, so nothing fried is gluten-free. Also, be sure to tell your server that you have a gluten allergy, and they will take careful cross-contamination measures in the kitchen. My favorite meal is their Kale Salad with a grilled salmon on top.

    The Margarita pizza was delicious! They had a lot of GF options on the menu. The waiter was very helpful. Look forward to going back.

    Fantastic dinner tonight, all three of us selected a different entree; salmon with cauliflower and Brussel sprouts (amazing), fried green tomato sandwich (amazing ) and cyan sandwich also terrific. Server was knowledgeable about gluten, what was safe, and what was not. Definitely will go back. Hard to find a place that the gluten eaters enjoy as much as the GF eaters. Yum!!

    Gluten-free choices are clearly marked on the menu. Nice variety. I had yummy shrimp tacos and my friend said the quinoa bowl was delicious. Dog-friendly.
