They have a GF menu and it’s easy to understand. I had a steak with a cream sauce, carrots, asparagus and Parmesan mash potatoes. It was lovely. I’ve actually had this same meal at the Yard House in Sacramento and both times it went very well.

Mostly this place gets it right. It's one of the few go to places near where I work where I can go that I can depend on for a gluten free meal. They have a gluten free menu, however you have to specifically tell your server to remove specific items from the regular dish. The menu tells you what to remove to make it gluten free. Once I ordered from the gluten free menu and the server served me my tacos, I bit into them and had a horrific sinking feeling as I realized the tortillas were FLOUR not corn. The sweet lady that waited on me was very sorry, but I don't think she realized how devastating her mistake was. I got severely sick. She asked about my disease and what my symptoms were, which was nice of her, but it was too late for me that day. Since then, she has served me and there has been no problems. I order the Carne Asada (steak tacos) a la carte with corn tortillas and as long as there are no flour tortillas I am fine and don't get sick. I'm also allergic to dairy so I also make sure there is no creamy dressing or cheese, which there is not, but I mention also my dairy allergy as a precaution. The other thing I order is the spicy tuna roll. I get conflicting info about this food item from servers. Twice I have had two different servers claim that it is not gluten free even though it's on the gluten free menu with the caveat to not serve it with the soy dressing. When these servers have talked to the kitchen the chef claims that the tuna is premade and has gluten, however I have ordered this item dozens of times in the GF version without any problems. Perhaps they are being overly cautious?? Who knows?? When you order the spicy tuna roll, it comes with three sauces, sirracha, sesame oil and soy vinegarette. Have them omit the soy vinegarette because it IS NOT gluten free. They used to put ginger chips on top, which were also not gluten free, but they don't use those chips any more. There are some other items on the menu that are gluten free (steak, salads, etc). There food tastes pretty good, but sometimes service can be relatively slow and their prices are guaranteed to be high. With careful ordering the wait staff for the most part are understanding and helpful. UPDATE: The last time I ate there I had to order the spicy tuna roll 3 different times and ran out of time to eat in restaurant so had to take the final version to-go, but it STILL made me sick. The first iteration clearly had mayo or something creamy mixed in with the tuna. (I explained I was allergic to both dairy and gluten when ordering), for the second attempt of the dish the tuna was clearly mixed with something that looked suspiciously like soy sauce, the third time, the tuna looked "clean" but it still made me very sick I immediately got the worst migraine of my life that lasted throughout the next day. Normally I came sleep migraines off. I was miserable at work the rest of the day and missed an important meeting the next day because I was still so sick. To Yard House's credit they did comp my whole meal, however I'm so scared to eat there after this horrible experience. It was super busy at the restaurant, so I'm thinking that possible cross-contamination was the issue. It's too bad because I'd usually drop about $30+ each meal there, but I can't risk getting sick there any more. You might get lucky and be okay here, but who wants to play roulette with your health. 😬 With tons of other restaurants in the area that seem to better understand gluten/dairy allergies, I will be eating elsewhere in the future.

How can a restaurant claim to have a GF menu that simply tells you to tell your server to remove most items from your dish and then pay full price! The Yard House is insulting to us and if they don't change we should boycott them. When I saw the menu I walked out.

Decent enough service. A decent number of options, but the menu wasn't created with us in mind. I didn't feel yucky, but I don't think it's probably Celiac friendly.

Their gf menu consists of telling you to "take off the bread". Even their bruschetta and dips aren't served with corn tortilla chips as an option instead of the flatbread.

Their French fries are not gluten free and their gluten free options are VERY limited; not much available. One star rating for at least knowing about gf eating requirements.

They have a “gluten sensitive” menu on-line. I ordered a sandwich with a gf bun (no gf bread). They toasted the bun, which clearly ended up cross contaminating my lunch, so I got sick. But the staff was really friendly, just not really knowledgeable about gf options.

I had a delicious Cobb salad minus the dairy. I was happy to have no reactions as a celiac.

While it wasn’t the most Celiac friendly place, they did have GF options. They have a “gluten sensitive” menu and definitely share that cross-contamination is a high risk. I was able to have a Cobb salad that is already gluten free but made sure to alert the waiter of my allergy
