    Menu has GF options clearly indicated. Only Salads and Entrees though. No appetizers are GF. Staff knowledgeable and willing to check with kitchen on items not clearly marked as GF. No dedicated fryer, but items using the fryer are not indicated as GF on menu and staff clearly pointed this out.

    Sat at the bar - bartender was knowledgeable about ingredients. Had bunless burger with a side salad - was excellent. Great bar selection including Cider. Fries not safe. Will definitely return.

    Gluten-free options acorn squash risotto, beef cheeks, roasted chicken are also soy free. I went with the rich and savory risotto and was pleasantly delighted.

    The braised pork was amazing! Great food, great atmosphere, great accommodations. Items are clearly marked on their regular menu, and staff is knowledgeable. One of the appetizers wasn't marked as GF (Brussel Sprouts) but the server confirmed they were.

    They have several amazing GF choices. I settled on a dish with grits, shrimp, sausage, tomatoes and cheese. It was delicious! Great atmosphere too. Will definitely return.

    Not a ton of options ( reason for 4 stars), but more than what the other reviews had. Had the ribs and they were fabulous!! Spicy with a touch of sweet and the slaw was good. Only stopped in for app and drinks, but looking forward to trying other options in future.

    Amazing drink options! Great burger SANS bun but it's stilllll that good to stand alone. Clearly labeled menu and fries are good (no longer labeled GF) but I ask everytime and they fry in separate frier :) they just prefer to not "promise" - I'm sensitive to cross contamination and have not had a problem here. SHRIMP AND GRITS ARE THE BESTTTT

    except for the beet salad everything that is gluten free on the menu is over $35. so it is celiac friendly if you have $50 for an average meal

    Very clearly identified GF menu. Food was good, but felt a bit over priced for what was dished out. Would be fine eating here if other wanted to, but I wouldn't make it my first choice.

    The menu clearly identified gluten free items and options. The waitress was very knowledgeable and professional. The ribs were in incredible and the flour-less chocolate cake was sinful!! I highly recommend!

    Food was great! Lots of clearly labeled GF options. Service was very accommodating. They completely deconstructed by companion's dish for her multiple sensitivities. Fun ambiance for a night out with friends!
