Great food. Almost whole menu can be made gluten free. Third time here and just keep coming back. Toast is in its own bag to prevent cross contamination. Thank you!

Ate here with our celiac son and they were amazing! They knew exactly what celiac was and assured us precautions are taken very seriously. We all enjoyed our meal in a friendly, clean environment and the food was yummy!

I know there’s already a ton of reviews here, but they’re just that good!! I am EXTREMELY sensitive, even to cross contamination, so it’s often hard to find places to eat. However, I’ve eaten here 3 times with no issue, and I’m so glad I found it! Out of their entire menu, breakfast and lunch, the only thing that CAN’T be made gluten free are the pancakes. Getting so many safe options is amazing!! I particularly love the French toast :) super sweet and helpful staff - they even often knowingly ask if I have celiac when I mention gluten free, and ensure they add notes to my order and it even comes out separately, before the rest of the table’s food to ensure it stays un-contaminated. They usually do carry out, but currently do not because of being short staffed. However, the service inside is still friendly, fast, and overall phenomenal.

Everything but the pancakes can be made gluten free! They have a separate part of the kitchen for GF items, and always bring out the celiac food before everything else!

Food was delicious but pricey. I told the waitress I had a gluten allergy and she then asked me if I had celiac and I said yes. Always comforting when then know what celiac is! When my food came out they set it in front of me said "we have the celiac french toast..."

Fabulous meal! We ordered take-out for brunch, due to COVID, and were able to complete the order online. There was a special section to note allergies while ordering. The gluten-free food was clearly marked, and they even put the gluten free items in a separate bag from items containing gluten. The Nutella-banana French toast was amazing! Omelettes and home fries were also safe and delicious. For lunch/dinner, try the chicken tenders and fries. They’re amazing!

Tried the gluten free French toast and a cheese-free omelette. Not sure if the French toast was also dairy free. They will prepare to order and the food is delicious. Also like their dairy-free fruit smoothies.

Everything can be made gluten free other than Mac and cheese and pancakes. Staff was knowledgeable and made sure precautions were taken for cross contamination. Ordered lobster tacos which were very good. They only fry French fries and chips so they’re also good for celiac

Excellent dinner! Ambiance was good and kid friendly. Their fryer is completely gluten free so I could enjoy the French fries and they do chicken nuggets gf that are quite good and everyone in our party (gf and non gf alike) enjoyed. Burger they do with a gf bun that didn’t fall apart. They have many gf options for all meals. Definitely recommend!!

Our family loves this place! Nearly everything on the menu can be done GF and they can work with casein allergies too. And a dedicated fryer! Got to get the Little Fingers (chicken tenders), and I love the seafood salad - crab, lobster, and shrimp on greens with your choice of dressing. So good!

The regular menu had a handful of items marked “GF”, and decent ones at that - chicken tenders the most notable. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a restaurant offer GF chicken tenders! GF buns and bread were also available for the burgers and sandwiches on the menu. And I know it’s a little thing, but it was nice to be able to look at the regular menu, instead of having to ask for and to look at a separate GF menu. My kids and I are gluten sensitive, and not celiac, so we can be more loose about these things, so I did not ask detailed questions - e.g. is there a dedicated fryer, dedicated counter space etc. - so definitely call ahead to confirm that what previous reviewers have said about this is still true. And from a foodie perspective, their burgers were great! I got the GF chopped salad, and my kids each had a GF burger - of which I of course took a bite. ;)

fantastic service and meal!! our server Michael fresh squeezed the Orange for my crush. He was very knowledgeable of GF and answered all my questions. The frier is dedicated GF. The servings were huge and delicious!! I am really glad I found this restaurant!! I had the GF fish tacos with the grilled salmon and sweet potato fries. My husband had the chicken fingers with home made potato chips. We will be back!!!

Superb gluten free, not so great customer service. They have gluten-free fried calamari that is to die for! Also many great gluten free options that are all LABELED on the menu! In that case, it was gluten free heaven. Sadly, the service was subpar. The restaurant is nice and clean but the staff could use some work. The service was very slow and forgetful. For me, I'd return because the food was amazing!
