I love it here! AWESOME beer selection for the non-gluten free people. Ciders and other drinks available for us :) I’ve gotten a burger here, the Buffalo chicken dip (with celery), and the asparagus and never gotten sick and it was all delicious. Especially the Buffalo chicken dip wow. Cool atmosphere too

Food quality was fine, however I was excited for brunch here because the menu online has a good amount marked GF. But on the actual menu most of these items are in quotes with a footnote saying there is no dedicated fryer. I asked if they could just heat up the potatoes in the skillet with the mash I ordered and they declined.

My favorite local gluten free restaurant HANDS DOWN. Attentive wait staff! Juicest burger I have ever had! Gluten free dessert you can't wait to eat. A menu that is updated frequently driving you to go back and uncover another adventure for your palate. Locally sourced farm to table experience. Live music often. Great experience for the whole family. A lovely place to take a date or go solo. . .the food is JUST THAT GOOD!

Not truly gluten free! No buns for burgers. A real shame. A few extra precautionary measures and this place would be a perfect place. Needs dedicated toaster and fryer.

Most of the items marked as GF on the menu are not actually GF, as they are cooked in a shared fryer (fries, wings, etc…). The waiter did tell me about the shared fryer, in case it was an issue for me, but then tried to talk me into ordering fries anyway because "99% of people that order our fries don't get sick!" I ended up with an acceptable salad.

It bills itself as a "farm to table" place but provided no source info on anything other than beer, wine, or ice cream. Not even seafood. My omnivorous companions and I agreed that everything was mediocre for the price.

We went for the small plates which is from 3 to 5 on saturday and sunday. Great selection all gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu. The only thing that would have made an otherwise perfect afternoon better would be on tap gluten free beer.

Half of the menu had a GF designation. Food is delicious and the menu rotates seasonally.
