Our waiter was knowledgeable about GF issues. He brought out the popovers separately for me so there would be no cross contamination. Went through the menu stating what could be made gluten free with modifications. The food was outstanding.
What can I say. Despite the great reputation, despite that supposedly the wife of the owner has celiac, my food was cross contaminated. I verified with my waiter that my fries were ok, that the fryer was safe. After slight hesitation he emphatically said I was good. Soon after, he rushed back to the table and said stop eating. I sincerely appreciate his honesty. I would have a much worse time if he decided not to double check or not tell me. I also understand that unless it is a gluten free restaurant there is a chance of cross contamination. This was, unfortunately the case for me despite the great reputation of this place. Too bad, I otherwise loved it. But I’m not looking forward to the next 24 hours.
Best meal I’ve had in a long time! The servers were well informed and knowledgeable about the food ingredients. I have allergies to beans, tomato and wheat... so other than just watching my food because I deal celiac disease, they also did a magnificent job in accommodating my other allergies. Oh! And they also made sure my “drink” was gluten free! Brownie points for THAT!
Do your research before you go, as staff seems overwhelmed and didn’t really go through the menu in detail. Shrimp and grits are safe and amazing. Ask for popovers (request they are in a separate basket from the biscuits if you have gluten eaters with you). They are made with tapioca flour and a nice treat before your email.
No gluten-free menu, but lots of good options to choose from. I had the shrimp and grits, which was wonderful. Giving a 4-star rating only because upon informing our server that I had celiac and needed to be gluten free, he scoffed and acted like it was an inconvenience. Ultimately, the food (which was great) is more important, but I think part of catering to celiacs is being understanding and accepting. Because of the server’s reaction, I found myself uncomfortable asking questions and avoided asking for the pop-overs that others had said they enjoyed so much in their reviews.
4 stars instead of 5 for 2 reasons: no specific gluten free menu but our server was awesome & readily circled GF items on the menu, she could even attest to the specific sauces & what ingredients were in them. Secondly, while it was great that they serve GF popovers - they arrived in the bread basket with other gluten breads.... worried about cc. Overall a great experience & would recommend.
Excellent service. No separate GF menu, but server was very knowledgeable about what I could safely have (nearly all the menu). The shrimp and grits are naturally GF and awesome! Even have tapioca flour popovers to bring to the table before dinner that are GF.
This is an upscale, fresh food establishment. Although they do not have a printed Gluten Free menu, when I stated my daughter had Celiac disease, they brought out a menu and were very knowledgeable. Even had special tapioca popovers for her while he waited on our meal. She did not have any reaction. It was a wonderful experience!
