No separate fryer but server informed me that they could bake the fries instead. Very bad reaction later that night and the only thing I ate in any restaurant that night were the baked fries (which weren’t even tasty).

Cactus Club offered a gluten free menu that showed regular menu items and how to make the gluten free. The staff were knowledgeable and the food came out marked as gluten free. The food was delicious and had vegan friendly options. The only down side is they do not have a dedicated gluten free fryer.

Very comfortable experience with knowledgeable staff. They will even bake your fries to avoid cross contamination. My only complaint is that it’s pricey for the portion sizes.

Lots of options, they can bake the fries for you so they aren’t in the shared fryer. Had a burger with a decent gf bun. Very knowledgeable

Ordered for pick up Salmon, mashed potatoes, asparagus. Same as I ordered when I dine in. Within 20 min of eating I was so sick and in so much pain. This used to be on my safe list because they took such care when we dined in. But definitely don't do take out...they don't take as much care.

Separate gluten free menu with quite a few choices. No dedicated fryer unfortunately. The cajun chicken sandwich with a gluten free bun was delicious.

Great Food , I had the GF Cajun chicken burger and it was delicious. The GF bread is so good and they can bake the fries so it doesn’t get cross contamination.

Their fries say gluten free but have the risk of cross contamination due to using the same fryer. I had been a customer for 2 years while being gluten free and just gave up their fries. Last month my lovely waiter told me that I could have the fries baked instead of fried!!! This was a game changer and I don’t know why it took me so long to figure out. Highly recommend and it does not taste any different baked.

I’ve been to this location a couple of times and seem to always end up with the grilled salmon. I love places that offer gf burgers however this location was out of gf buns (Im not a big fan of lettuce buns, but will get them if there is no other option). And the server/manager came over to ask if I was ok with the bacon that might have cross contamination (which I appreciate!). I said no and ordered something else. But why is the bacon cheeseburger marked as gf? I also wish they would get separate fryers like Earl’s. The view at this location is amazing so I put up with the limited menu options.

I have been here many times for drinks. You have to insist that they have gluten free beer, as a few times I have been told by waiters that they do not have what I’m asking for (without checking). Kind of annoying. I ordered food last time and got the bacon cheddar burger on a gluten free bun with baked yam fries. I am having a slight reaction and suspect it might have been from cross contamination. My waiter did not seem to address my concerns with seriousness.

None dedicated frier, dedicated kitchen space, waitress reminded kitchen staff anyways. She was super friendly but not educated. Tortilla chips off gf menu not safe; Fried in shared frier so ask questions when you order off the gf menu. Buns for gf hamburger toasted on same grill as regular buns according to waitress Super friendly staff with good advice just ask questions to make sure your bases are covered. Didn’t get sick ended up having the oven truffle fries as appy and steak as main. Didn’t get sick 👍🏻

After and extensive conversation with my server about being celiac and having a severe dairy allergy I had the manager come out 10 mins into my meal to let me know the kitchen made a mistake. While I do believe my server did all she could to inform the kitchen there’s clearly an issue in the kitchen. The manager felt horrible bit once I’ve had a bite I’m affected. I was really disappointed for such a big chain that usually takes allergies so seriously

They have a gluten free menu but after I asked some questions it appeared to not be complete gluten free. Many of the sauces on the gluten free menu contain gluten. I had an extensive conversation with the waitress who was very nice and allegedly check with the kitchen to make sure everything was completely gluten free. I changed my order 3 times after being told they couldn’t make certain dishes that were labeled gluten free safe and still ended up gett my glutened. Just not wort it, I will not be going there again.

The staff was very knowledgeable and careful. I’m extremely sensitive to cc. I had the quinoa salad and a side of prawns. I nima tested it and both passed and I didn’t get sick. Even though we shared 2 bottles of wine between the three of us 😳

Our waiter was delightful. They had a gluten free menu and took special care with my order. I couldn’t eat the French fries because they are in a shared fryer, so they gave me baked sweet potato fries with a garlic aeoli instead and it was delicious. I had a lettuce wrapped burger ($1 extra for the lettuce wrap) instead of the gluten free bun ($1.25 extra) and t was the best bunless burger I’ve ever had.

Had gluten free options on menu. But staff not well informed. Upon further questioning about food handling and possible cross contamination, waiter only referenced the menu. Made no effort to check with kitchen staff. Limited gluten free entrees. Service was slow, but food tasted good.

Very good! Got a bacon cheddar burger with mixed vegetable salad and it was delicious! A lot of items did contain gluten (like panko crumbs in the kale salad), but waitress was super knowledgeable and able to guide me to options that were safe. The fryers weren't separate so I wasn't able to get fries with the burger but the mixed vegetables/greens were so good I didn't even mind! The lettuce looked much better than the fries anyway! Would come back :)

Food was good but VERY limited options for gluten free. I saw it in this app, decided to go. I could only have a soup and salad. While very good, not what I was hoping to have.

They have a separate GF menu that their shift manager will bring out upon request. While options are limited and the selections are pricey, the food is quite good. "The Burger" is my favourite thing on the menu. Best GF burger I've had, before or after GF.
