Owl House has dedicated fryers, but I got sick anyway from my meal (classic burger +fries). As always, ordering things online is risky, but they had a separate space for comments on the order. I also called ahead of time to ask some questions about their gf procedures and they seemed confident in their ability to handle celiac/gluten allergy, so I’m surprised that there was an issue. With COVID, maybe they’ve changed food prep? I don’t know, but please be careful!

The menu is small, but most items on the menu are available for gf modification.

Again, I got sick! Especially if you have a severe reaction to gluten, be cautious and thorough (ex. Calling in addition to making comments on the online order) if you choose to eat here.

Only have gone for brunch and was not disappointed. Safe fryer for potatoes. Really good homemade bread!! They get a 4 because the menu isnt labeled. However the servers are very helpful and most everything can be gf.

I've eaten here twice and have never had a reaction. Servers are knowledgeable about GF menu items. I ordered a traditional turkey dinner (with GF stuffing!) the first time, and buffalo cauliflower and fish fry the second time. Both meals were unbelievably delicious and I felt delightfully full afterward - no reaction at all. HIGHLY recommend.

The food here is always exceptional, with so many options for different needs (or none at all)! Portions are great, too. As an added bonus, The Gluten Free Chef bakery is right across the street!

Very disappointed. We drove 5hrs and arrived at 10:40 pm. Not many restaurants open but came to owlhouse because of gf options. About 4 people sitting at the bar but told us they were closed even though the hours said open until 11pm. ended up at The Distllery, which is open until 1am.

Disappointed would be an understatement. I was excited to try The Owl House because of their supposed knowledge of Celiac Disease and the gluten-free diet. When I placed my order I double checked with the waiter that my order was, in fact, gluten-free, because I am always leery even if it says it is gluten-free on the menu. He said yes. Not even two hours after eating there I became terribly ill. The next day I called and asked to speak with the manager, then asked again if what I ate was gluten-free. I was told no. They took down my email address and phone number, stating they would send me a $20 gift certificate for the "inconvenience". I never received the gift certificate, nor will I ever go back. It is completely unacceptable for a restaurant that claims to be so specialized in the gluten-free diet to have a wait staff so unknowing and unskilled in the meaning and definition of "gluten-free". Eat at your own risk.
