I’m also lactose intolerant and had trouble getting a dish that was both GF and dairy free. I did ultimately get something that I was assured was GF, but I didn’t feel great afterwards so am not convinced.

Fabulous food. Dedicated fryer for the sweet potato fries. Staff were knowledgeable on gluten intolerance. We were told the beers go through a process that reduce the gluten. Did not chance it with the beers, but had a wonderful meal with no issues.

Not a ton of GF options on the menu but the few they have are very tasty! I feel confident eating here with celiac - staff is very knowledgeable and will alter kitchen about allergies/celiac.

Super friendly staff from greeter to server to cook. Willing to make it as ordered. Fryer not dedicated but most items labeled gf were fully gf. Chopped salad was excellent (I left out the bleu cheese).

I mentioned to the server that I had celiac and he immediately assured me he would inform the chef to be careful. I had a delicious plate of chilaquiles and no symptoms afterward. My only complaint is that that was one of only 2 or 3 gf things on the menu, and I’d love it if they would expand their offerings. The mulled wine is also very delicious and ditto on no reactions.

The staff is very nice and as accommodating as they can given the limited menu. Only two gluten free options on the menu with a few items that can be modified. They used to have more options, particularly for brunch. Breakfast potatoes are all deep fried in non-dedicated fryer. The manager said it is particularly difficult to have GF options for breakfast, which is strange as most egg dishes can easily be made GF.There's better GF options in the area. If you are Celiac or allergic, go here only if you must.

I went for brunch and they didn’t have anything gf. I asked the server to check what could be made gluten free. She went back to the chef and they told her if I was celiac that nothing is safe. I drank champagne.

I had a chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries. They have a dedicated fryer for the sweet potato fries (not the regular fries though). The gluten free bun for the sandwich was incredible. One of the best I’ve ever had. It held together and tasted good too! Good cocktails too. Also felt really safe covid-wise. I have celiacs and didn’t get sick.

Ate here for years and over time they would remove items from gf menu options because they'd discover the items were NOT gluten free. Good tasting food but not enough safe options especially considering the pricing (example: delicious salad with about two ounces of chicken is almost $20).

There are no appetizers that are gluten free and only two entrees, one being a hamburger with a gluten free bun. Fries are NOT safe.

The fries are NOT gluten free. They offer 1 item that is gluten free and vegetarian but for those who eat meat, they do offer a gluten free bun.
