Not celiac safe but would be fine for someone who is GF but doesn’t mind CC. I did a build your own burger with a side salad. They said the burger was on a grill where only meat was cooked and I could get a gluten free bun. Came out with a toasted GF bun. I asked about the toasted bun and they said they “cleaned off the grease from the grill really well with disinfectant” so there wouldn’t be cross contamination, indicating buns and burger were on the same grill top. No dedicated fryer. Manager was not understanding when I returned my food and did not want it replaced (pizza cannot be made celiac safe, nor pasta, so I wasn’t comfortable ordering something else).

After further questioning later, their current protocol is to clean off the grill where they toast all with water then toast GF buns even if your order is marked celiac, but someone who works in the kitchen there stated if requested they will gladly give an untoasted bun or microwave it (it’s just not their current protocol).

The GF pizza has been safe and I can get a salad GF with no problem (Ranch is the only dressing I'm sure is GF so I often bring my own)

Server warned that fryer wasn’t dedicated and to steer clear of anything fried with allergy/celiac customer. I feel that the gf menu has many more options than many other restaurants.

I have a gluten-free ravioli meal. The way they make it is they bake gluten-free rice pasta it is not ravioli but they put in shredded chicken and cheese and sauce and bake it. When you eat it it taste just like an inside-out ravioli except It’s GF. Pretty good if you can do dairy. They also had beautiful looking salads and your typical thin crust GF pizza.

Staff was awesome. Ordered a “make your own” burger with GF bun and mashed potatoes. Some items listed as GF share fryer, so not good for celiac. Wait staff will advise you on this.

Excellent restaurant with some quality gluten free options that can be found on their allergen menu. They have gotten a lot better over the years with knowledgeable servers and will take special precaution if you tell them it's an allergy. If they ever don't have an answer or are unsure, they are quick to go check with the back. They have several GF options to choose from, but I always go with one of their top-notch burgers on a GF bun or a pizza with their surprisingly good GF crust. Unfortunately they do not have a dedicated fryer so no waffle fries for me 😔 but you can substitute them for some real mashed potatoes (the kind with chunks of potatoes still in it!). They also have a good happy hour and if become a club member for $20 you get 20% your bill every time you eat, which pays for itself in no time!I've gone here on a weekly basis for a few years and don't recall having any issues, certainly not lately. I used to live right next to the place and loved having a reliable restaurant so close. I definitely miss it since having moved!

No choices being labeled truly gluten free. Basically gluten free substitutes such as buns, pasta, and pizza crust. Even sausage used in pizzas has bread crumbs in it but that is not readily apparent in the description

Food has been hit and miss for us. Some visits are great and others disappointing.
