    These guys express a genuine interest in GF and my wife who is allergic (at a level comparable to celiac) has been sick at least twice after GF assurances from the management. GF health kick? Awesome place that we really enjoy. ~Celiac...safer to avoid.

    Good date night restaurant. Eat in the romantic dining room or hang out in the bar. Great burgers with GF buns, lots of options for both of us. Low prices and big portions.

    Excellent variety of GF items and the food was delicious! The manager, Joe, came over to talk to us; very conscientious and friendly. The GF bun that came with the BBQ was one of the best we've had. I highly recommend Timberwood Grill.

    I give this restaurant zero stars. In order to leave a comment I must give at least one star. Please read this as zero stars. My experience here was horrible. I have celiac and am obviously highly allergic to gluten. We went out of our way to get to this restaurant to make sure I was safe for dinner on our long drive home. We ate there last night. Today, I am incredibly sick. In response to the fact I was immediately sick while still on the premises, the manager offered me Benadryl. Clearly these people have no idea how to deal with gluten intolerance. When we arrived at the restaurant, I informed the hostess I was very sensitive to gluten. I did the same thing when I first spoke with the waitress, sharing with her we had gone out of our way to get to Timberwood Grill because we understood this restaurant was responsible about gluten free issues. My salad was delivered with croutons on it. After the salad scare, I began to worry about the nachos we had ordered. They were ordered from the gluten free menu. Ninety percent of the chips in the order were apparently gluten free, but some of the chips were different. When I asked about the different chips, I was assured the platter was completely gluten free. After I had consumed the different chips, the waitress came by to let me know they were actually wheat chips. Likewise, the "gluten free" fries we consumed were advertised as gluten free. After I began to get sick while still in the restaurant, the manager came by the table to say she needed to let me know the fries were not cooked in designated oil and that there might be traces of gluten in them. Needless to say, I was sick and uncomfortable on my four hour ride the rest of the way home to North Carolina. I know people have been criminally prosecuted in my state for advertising something as gluten free and knowing it is not, in fact, gluten free. I do not know the laws in Virginia, but will find out. The manager, who had no idea what she was talking about , said the entire thing was a "server error" and indeed, the server was not well versed in the seriousness of this disease. Also, after being told several times I was gluten intolerant, she allegedly did not make a note of that fact on the order. Nonetheless, the manager was also clueless, offering Benedryl to combat the injury. These people are not trained and do not realize they have left me with two weeks of misery and an inability to walk, as my joints swell up today and my body is ravaged. Please avoid this restaurant if you have any tendency to be impacted by gluten. I believe if a restaurant advertises itself as a gluten free eating experience, they have a responsibility to educate their employees. If you are on a gluten free diet because you are trying to be healthy, maybe the gluten included in the "gluten free" items here will not leave you in pain. As for a celiac, you would prefer to not eat than to eat here. Please beware.

    Best "pitstop" decision our family of two Celiacs have experienced!! Bountiful gf menu, well trained staff on all fronts. First order of Nachos that weve consumed in years! Personal pitstop from the management to introduce himself see how all was with our meals. Great atmosphere..

    Wow! Yummy did the bacon cheeseburger- very good and satisfying! Also, gave me additional option of chips w/ salsa as side. They also offer local beef source for additional fee - I will be back! $12 for my meal and waitress very friendly, even found out producer of the yummy buns!

    The gluten free menu is listed on their website. Not a massive selection, but they do offer to modify regular menu items to be GF and I was able to do that with one of their dips. I ordered the Chuck Norris, a burger on a GF but with sautéed onions, mushrooms, cheese, coleslaw, BBQ sauce, pickles, lettuce and tomato. The side choices were either coleslaw or 3 Bean Salad, and I chose the salad. Our waiter was knowledgable about the GF options and helped me out when I accidentally almost glutened myself by ordering fries. Our order took a while to arrive and when mine came, the GF bun was there, but my coleslaw (I love slaw) was not. I ordered without mushrooms and cheese due to other allergies. Burger was good and bun had some crunch which was great. The 3 Bean Salad was overly sweet and I could not eat it. My guy agreed. Also, the Chuck Norris was priced at $9.70 on the GF website menu, but $10.25 on my bill. Be sure to check prices. Overall, my burger was tasty and their menu is pretty big and they're willing to modify it for you. I gave it 3 for price changes and leaving off foods.
