We were eating here as a family of celiacs. There are very few options in this area compared to other areas we've lived and thought we were doing ok eating here. This past experience - they gave all three of our burgers their brioche bun despite the order being labeled at gluten allergy on all orders. This was the first time we'd noticed something was off with my husbands bun and I'm now pretty sure my last order had the gluten bun on it on a previous trip and we didn't catch the difference because this bun is vastly different.

I was really sick around our last time here and didn't connect the two. Now I'm pretty sure I know why. My husband didn't connect the mistakes until after he'd eaten a few bites. Do not eat here if you have celiac sensitivities. We will not be back.

Well done menu, the waiter was quite pleasant! And my food was delicious! I would absolutely come here again, hopefully I'll have room for dessert.

The first place I tried when we moved here and it felt safe to eat. Separate GF menu and they are always trying to add to it. Tasty food. Staff have been knowledgeable.

I always get the same thing here... GF BBQ chicken pizza and side salad. It's always good and so far, I haven't gotten glutened.

I found penne pasta in my shrimp and grits after half eaten. Gave GF lesson to manager. She explained they had steps to follow in the kitchen. I explained they weren't followed. Sorry didn't work. There was no excuse for such carelessness. I give a 1 star only because this site requires it. It is a minus zero.

Server was very knowledgeable and helpful. There was a mistake and the wrong pizza (non gluten free version) was delivered by a runner. Quickly fixed and the server brought me a little something to snack on while I waited. The pizza was good but as with most gf pizza, underdone since it was cooked on a tin. Will come again when I'm back in the area.

First, I have never been glutened when eating here, which is good. But I have been disappointed with the food every time. The salmon is always delicious, but the veggies have no spices, not even salt. It's frustrating. I'm not a chef, but even I can add some herbs and spices to give it flavor. Just don't think I'll go any more.

Lots of tasty gf options and have never gotten sick from eating here. However I have gotten the shrimp scampi with gf pasta twice and both times the pasta was very undercooked. Almost crunchy. Shrimp and grits have always been amazing though!

Best GF pizza I've ever had. Crust had the perfect amount of chew (no mushiness or mealy after taste) and crisp enough to hold a slice by hand. Also, no upcharge for GF crust! An absolute must if you are in the area. Staff was very versed on GF needs and even double checked my drink order to make sure it was also GF.

This is not safe establishment for anyone on a gluten free diet for medical reasons. Was assured food was prepared in a separate area, I went to sleep sick to my stomach and woke up with a migrane after consuming vegetables, grilled chicken and creme brulee.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone with Celiac disease. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

I ordered Grouper in a lemon butter sauce with the pasta which was marked as GF. I clearly made the server aware that I needed gluten free. The meal was very good, but later that night I was sick and clearly glutened! Either the pasta was not gluten free or there was cross-contamination. Either way I guess I’ll have to be more careful in my selections in the future.
