I love this place! We’ve been there a few times and I love how they can make so many things gluten free! The servers are always so friendly and easy to work with!

I only ate dessert here but it was fantastic! The dessert dippers had strawberries, pineapple, marshmallows, snickerdoodle cookies, and brownies. Delicious!

Worked with Gluten Intolerance Group on their gluten-free menu. Special training is required for staff.

The food here is amazing. They can be gluten friendly, and they substituted the chicken teriaki for more beef in our entree. It cost more, but only bc we asked for the filet.

You cook everything yourself, so my husband just took out some cheese for his bread to keep it gf. The waitress was new and not too aware of gf issues and gave us a cheese mix with beer in it. Thankfully, we were able to stop her before she poured it in! She also offered to substitute cookies in the chocolate with graham crackers! Um... no . But other than properly training their staff, the meal went well.

With dessert, they have some options that are gluten-friendly like fruit and coconut marshmallows for the chocolate. My only complaint is that they do not have gluten free bread or brownies. For the price, it would be a nice addition.

If you want to cook, stay home. My arms got tired holding my food while cooking it. You would be better off going camping.

Maybe they've improved since, but my experience earlier this year was not a good one. Only some of the staff seemed trained on GF and Celiac. Food tasted great but I had a bad reaction after.

I went to this restaurant because it was GIG recommended I was very disappointed. The waitress did not seem sure about what was gluten free. My friend and I were sharing a pot and she had agreed to do gluten free yet the waitress brought regular bread for her and gluten free for me. It was frustrating and I was nervous.

Staff seemed undertrained in allergy protocol. When the cheese was brought out it was announced that they were out of gf bread, and in its place was tortilla chips, green apple, and crummy looking broccoli. I would have appreciated being told that up front. Main course was brought to us with two non gluten free meats that had to be sent back. Before we realized it, my husband cooked a piece of unsafe chicken in the broth. The final course came out with non gf dippers. It’s exhausting having to constantly remind your server of your needs. By the time the gf dippers came out the chocolate was cold. So disappointed because we came here specifically because it’s supposed to be a safe place. I was sick and obviously glutened.

Great experience! They were able to provide the complete 4 course meal gluten free. Gluten free bread (delicious) and dessert accompaniments including gluten free cookies and brownies. Would definitely recommend.

decent GF options but call ahead to make sure they have GF bread to dip- otherwise, you end up with whatever they can find. Celery and carrots dipped in cheese just isn’t the same thing!
