This was a great experience, they were very helpful, and the food was delicious! We had a gluten-free dairy free meal and we are supersensitive and did not get sick. Nice to eat with the rest of the family! This place was a lot of fun. We had a party of nine and they give you two burners. Four of us had to eat gluten free dairy free so there was no cross-contamination. You can’t get more than two burners on the table I don’t think. Highly recommend! They have a vegan gf cheese and they use Redbridge gluten free beer in the cheese fondue. We had a four course meal - cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert that uses Enjoy Life dark chocolate.

Staff was very knowledgeable about allergens and the gf dippers and sauces were clearly noted.

Wow! I had no idea just how thorough they’d be caring for food restrictions due to allergies. Our son has celiacs and we felt very assured they were on top of the necessary precautions. Our whole party (9) agreed to go 100% gluten free so that our son could sample other items offered among our party. We had purchased him the birthday package and they gave him chocolate covered strawberries and a box of chocolates - both gluten free as well. Highly recommend eating here - even if it’s just for the cheese or chocolate!

I had a wonderful experience I am GF and DF and egg free, they were able to accommodate my allergies and always insured that my pot was the right one and everything was very clear on what I could and could not eat! The wait staff was amazing with this and I can’t wait to go back again!

My husband and I came here for our anniversary. I called ahead to talk to them about how they handle gluten free and it seemed like they were knowledgeable so we decided to try it. Food was very good, though the gluten free bread was only okay, though that is pretty much to be expected anywhere and at least it wasn't bad. The other dippers were good, and the dessert options were all good. We only tried cheese and chocolate and skipped the meat options (we tried two types of cheese instead), but everything we tried was good. My husband of course had to eat gluten free with me to not contaminate the fondue, but he was also happy with the food. Would definitely go again.
