Great food. Few GF dishes but interesting and well cooked. More than 250 whiskies...all GF. You get the feeling it is celiac safe.

I came here based on the other wonderful reviews and did not get the same experience at all. When I told the waiter I was gluten free, he told me he had no idea if what was gf on the menu could actually be gluten free. And he said there was a high risk of cross contamination because of the size of the kitchen. It’s clear to see the kitchen is very small so I could see exactly what he meant. He told me I could talk to the head chef but he was out at the grocery because they were running out of things. We waited for a bit and no one ever came so we just decided to leave. Definitely sad we had this experience.

Menu clearly marked, very helpful staff and beautiful location with a fun atmosphere. Be careful of the fries or any menu item with fries, because they are not cooked in a dedicated fryer.

Enjoyed a great meal here! One of us had burgoo and GF cornbread, the other had catfish with greens and cheese grits. Food was delicious. We sat at picnic tables on the screened porch. Wish they had GF desserts, though.

Excellent experience! We found this place while traveling to Frankfort for the day. We went during the day so it was not busy, The food was delicious and the service exceptional. I have Celiac Disease and the items that are gluten free are clearly marked. The waiter even made a suggestion to make sure my meal was safe. My only suggestion is they need a dedicated fryer because their fries looked amazing! We will be back. I should also mention is situated near several beautiful horse farms and distilleries which is great if you are touring them.

This is a little gem of a place! When you’re trying to find it you go through the smallest, not the best looking little town wondering how can there be a good restaurant here. My husband and I are a bicultural couple and traveled a lot. This is on our top ten list of restaurants ever. We had GF cheese grits, cornbread with homemade jam and the best, tenderest duck with cream sauce. No problems with the gluten so far. Will make a trip every week.
