I tried this place put due to good reviews and it did not disappoint. We are outside on the patio, while the bees were annoying the food was great! I had gf Mac and cheese that was very creamy and cheeses. The Mac and cheese was cooked in a cast iron skillet! I also had a gf beef on whick. Was not really on whick it was on a gf roll. While the beef was good and the sauce was gf, the roll did not hold up to moisturize in meat. It was kind of messy to eat, if I ordered again I would opt for the roll on side and make the sandwich in parts. Small price to way for GF food that was safe to eat!

I had the mac and cheese and the poached pear salad, both items were delicious, and I had no reaction. The staff was knowledgeable, and I was completely comfortable eating here. I will definitely be back the next time I’m in Buffalo!

Jay (owner) and his team were excellent. The food was delicious, they had local ciders (naturally GF), and we left without a single bellyache...besides from being so full. We will absolutely be back and are so happy to have another restaurant in our GF arsenal.

We came here for lunch when where we had planned to go turned out to be closed.

Most menu items are gluten-free. Unfortunately the fish fry was just advertised as gluten-free it’s not really what you would expect a traditional western New York fish fry to be. It’s a lemon broiled fish. So my kids and I they did for gluten-free macaroni and cheese. It was very tasty and selling. My mother purchase the gluten-free a Reuben sandwich with roasted potatoes. We all enjoyed our meal immensely. The service was a little bit slow but the food was excellent.

Absolutely my favorite place to get gluten free food in Buffalo! I’m a Celiac and I’m super confident that the staff takes all the precautions necessary! From what I know the owner and their kids also have celiacs which makes me feel so much better about getting gluten free food from here. Last time I was there I got the Buffalo chicken sandwich and mac and cheese GF, both were SOO GOOD seriously can’t recommend this place enough for my GF people! And of course everyone else they have the best food, drinks and staff!!

The family of 4 that owns it are gluten free so they know their stuff, and have trained their staff well! Very accommodating as well. Good nightlife scene too while being kid friendly, think upscale updated neighborhood Irish pub kind of thing.

The menu is clearly labeled which items are gluten free and which can have GF substitutions (bun, pasta, etc). Our server was helpful with my questions. I got a burger with a GF bun and was impressed to find that the buns are sourced from a local bakery, not sad frozen grocery store buns.
