If you have celiac disease, the only safe place for you to eat here is outside on the patio. Due to the fact that it is a brewery, and the tanks are in the dining room, there is gluten in the air. Yes, even inhaling gluten can get into your GI tract. They have a sizable gluten free menu and the food is delicious, but for true celiacs, it will never be 100% safe.

Be careful - their gluten sensitive menu doesn't explain that everything is in a shared fryer. Best nachos around if you can have them, especially with the chili added. The dinner food is underwhelming and over priced but the pub is great (if you can get a seat).

Though they have a gluten free menu, be sure to ask where and how their food is prepared. The nachos are fried in the same fryer as breaded food. I stick to salads when I am there and for the most part don't feel ill after but I do not have an extremely high sensitivity to gluten.

They have an okay selection...but every time I eat here I leave with a stomach ache and bloating that lasts all day. Definitely not celiac friendly.

They have a nice gluten sensitive menu, but they were very clear that everything is made in the same area.

They have a decent "gluten sensitive" menu, but they can't promise no cross-contamination. As for the nachos, I was told they were not celiac-safe.

Willimantic is not the foodie town I live in now, but when I'm back east visiting family this is a definite stop. They have much more than nachos offered on their gluten sensitive menu. My boyfriend had a chicken and rice dish (I of course ordered the nachos, who could resist?). Those nachos are enough to feed 6 people but they'll also prepare you a decent Cobb salad or a handful of other things and they have cider on tap. Not bad, Willimantic. Three stars for the food but bumping then to 4 overall for the separate menu and super attentive service. Our server was Stan - nice guy. Enjoy!

Extremely disappointed. Very very limited options. Definitely more for a college bar type crowd, I could only order nachos.
