This was the most amazing meal! EVERYONE was knowledgeable about Celiac Disease . It was so awesome to be able to enjoy a meal that I had no doubt was safe. The pork chop was delicious!!!!

I met friends here for brunch and had the worst salad ever which was pretty much the only thing on the menu I could eat since I also have to avoid dairy. The server wasn’t even nice... just plopped the mostly romaine salad in front of me. I won’t ever go back. Not sure what people in previous reviews found to eat.

I will start by saying I have been here previously and it was wonderful, but last night I went and it was terrible! First the poor waiter was not trained well so had no idea about gluten free options apart from 3 meals that are highlighted on the menu. Eventually the head waitress came over and went over my options. I advised them I’m not a preference person, but I have a wheat allergy and have an epi pen so it’s a real thing. Then the waiter took our order and made sure to note to swap the fried chicken for grilled and to swap gf bread etc. it comes out of the kitchen with fried chicken on gf bread so they finally remade it and a manager brought it out and calmed my nerves that they were 100% certain it was gf.

The food was good and I had no reaction but the process getting there was a little disconcerting and my boyfriend was terrified we would end up in the hospital with their lack of properly training the waiter and failure to make it correctly initially. Just be weary. It wasn’t busy, so I’m not sure what the excuse would be for a Saturday evening.

Menu is marked with GF. Manager (Ryan) was very accommodating and double checked everything to make sure that they avoided any allergies. Even preped GF food with separate kitchen tools. Will definitely come back again!

Just got a GF small plate so finally a place I can go to an HH. Great food, great drinks. Not a huge selection for GF but decent especially for a Southern style restaurant!

Many red flags that I shouldn’t have ignored. Waiter didn’t write anything down which means he didn’t write down my gluten allergy when I told him. The pork I ordered came on a cast iron pan that may have been contaminated. He brought out macaroni and cheese on my plate instead of grits that I ordered. I’m writing this as I lay here sick :( wouldn’t recommend.

Delicious! I’m a celiac and felt very safe eating their shrimp and grits. Was also a fine environment to bring our toddler; not too fancy.

Not an extensive gluten free menu but they do have gluten free bread and can make many of their sandwiches gluten free.

There were a few gluten free options, but not a whole lot. I would say the restaurant is safe for those with sensitivities or intolerances, but NOT celiac. The green beans are listed as gluten free, but when they were brought out (after ordering and alerting the waiter that I am celiac) I was told there was a chance of cross contamination. I poked through them and found bits of fried chicken batter stuck to them, so definitely shared fryers. Our order also took an exceptionally long time (waiter forgot to put it in) and we were brought biscuits for the meantime with no other options for the gf individuals.

However, I got the cast iron pork which was extremely tasty, and had no chance for cross contamination.

Maybe it was the service but we did not have a good experience here. We mentioned multiple times that we had 2 celiacs in our party. When asked about the gluten free options for breakfast the waiter seemed bothered by us asking and said that the gf logo was next to what we could eat. Since none of the breakfast items had that specific logo, we asked since there is no logo there is no gluten free breakfast items and he said they could be substituted but there is a possibility of cross contamination. We we’re getting ready to leave and he stated 3 items could be modified gf. Of which we ordered 2 of those items with the substitutions and we still got sick. I would eat here at your own risk!
