Ate there yesterday with my celiac daughter. Chef came to the table to explain what she could have and wrote it down on a pink ticket so staff would know to take precautions for an allergy. Her options were a GF bun (hamburger), grilled chicken, grilled shrimp, or GF pasta with marinara or butter. She could also do fries, corn, mashed potatoes or fruit as a side. She did the pasta with corn and enjoyed her meal. She did not get sick and we were overall very pleased with the experience.

What others have said is true: a manager will come out with a bright pink slip and go over the menu with you and tell you what’s safe and what isn’t and write it all out for you and deliver your food. It was so relaxing, and I loved it. But then they brought me my plate of gluten free pasta, served with a very gluten-filled piece of bread right on the rim of the plate. Ugh. Fortunately, I’m not that sensitive to CC so I just removed it and ate what I could. I would have totally given 5 stars otherwise though! They have dedicated fryers and prep space for allergens.

They had a manager take my order and they took all the precautions. They did not have many options so I had a GF pasta. It wasn’t anything special but at least I did not get sick. No appetizers or desserts were GF. The wait was also incredibly long (even with a reservation) around 45 minutes from order to food.

Friendly staff and options that could be adjusted to be gluten free. Daughter had the option of gf pasta with different sauces, gf hamburger and bun or grilled chicken, 4/5 of the kids menu sides and ice cream for dessert. Nachos were not gluten free and no dedicated fryer but daughter was happy with the options.

Extremely disappointed about seeing the great reviews for this place and the experience we had. We told the server my two year old son has celiac disease. He brought a manager over, we placed our order with her and felt really safe. Another server brings my son his food (cheeseburger with gluten free bun) and announced that it was the allergy meal. I immediately noticed the bread was regular buns. I snatched it up before my son could touch it and sent it back. Our server confirmed that they had sent regular bread. I believe that the hamburger was put on a gluten free bun and sent back bc my son was extremely bloated the rest of the day and the next and had gluten exposure stmptoms. The manager came out and apologized and comped my sons meal but did not seem to understand the seriousness. It ruined our entire trip to Disney.

I’ve read reviews of others saying that a chef came out to talk with them about precautions. I personally did not have this happen, rather my waiter went back and relayed information. Fryer was not dedicated, so instead of fries I opted for a veggie.. I was a bit disappointed at a large plate of raw unseasoned broccoli that seemed like it was left under a warmer (but clearly not cooked). I had a veggie burger on a GF bun otherwise which was ok. There are no dessert options. Honestly few options in general…

The food experience was underwhelming (and overpriced for the quality) to say the least, but the kids enjoyed the ambience.

Nothing is marked gluten free/friendly on the menu. Asked my server and she indicated I could have chicken (not beef) nachos, a hamburger with a gf bun, or pasta. I opted for the chicken nachos and the portion was very large and they were pretty good. The waitress advised that the nachos wouldn’t be served with the beans and she confirmed that the nacho chips were okay because sometimes they change the chips they use. A Manager came to the table to confirm the gluten free order wasn’t just a preference and to advise that precautions would be taken. Overall, pretty satisfied with the experience. It has been 24 hours and I do not have any symptoms of consuming gluten.

One thing is for sure, they truly care about safely accommodating allergies. The manager takes the order and the allergy conscious meals are brought to the table separately. We had the gluten free penne, corn, orange slices and coke icee. This plate tested celiac safe. The other plate was a hamburger on a gf bun with fries (yes they have a gf only fryer!). We noticed the seasoning and decided to Nima test them and the burger. Test showed gluten found. Kitchen, actually the manager, remade the meal and we asked for kosher salt to be the only seasoning. We took it to go, as by this time we had already been at the restaurant for 2 hours. Tested both at hotel and they tested gluten free! Highlight, we eventually all ate safely at the Mall of America which had been difficult for us, but noting that we waited a very long time for the food and the service from our waiter was subpar. That being said, the manager truly cared and was curious to know the results of the test so he could talk with corporate.

Safe. My celiac kiddo got a $10 kids meal with rice pasta spaghetti, French fries, fruit and a icee to drink. The chef handled her order all the way to the table. Staff had great knowledge of celiac & GF contaminant issue. They had a dedicated fryer for the fries and a GF pot for the rice pasta. Really fun place to eat out and we felt very comfortable eating there. Did not get sick. I would 100% recommend for both GF kids & adults.

Informed server in a highly sensitive celiac, and asked if she would please inform the cook. Ordered a salad with italian dressing I was told was gluten free. Finished 3/4 of my salad and found a crouton. 🙄🤬 Dinner came, assured me 3 time it was gluten free 🙄 I'm currently bloated and nauseous 🤢 I was so hungry, hasn't eaten all day... I'm so sorry I didn't just go hungry and wait for the nearly 3 hour drive home 🤢😭

We went today, which they are offering a limited menu due to the COVID19 pandemic. There was only one gluten free meal on the menu. They did have burgers you can make gluten free. Server did go ask management if there was anything else but was told there was the only singular gluten free option. It was good just a little greasy

A truly great experience! Once alerted to our celiac, the waitress brought out a chef who went through the menu with us and offered to create a dish we would enjoy if we didn’t want what was listed. Our order was on a different colour paper to stand out in the kitchen and cooked by the chef who came to our table (who also checked on us later). Highly recommend!!

I went here not expecting much, probably end up with a salad. Wow, was I surprised! They sent out a point person who mainly handles allergies and talked to me about what my options were. There’s no GF menu but they can tailor it to your needs. They have Udi’s GF buns and a dedicated fryer for fries. So I settled on a Beyond veggie burger with fries and it was delish! They also have GF pasta. I had no ill effects afterward. I’ll definitely be back!

The staff was wonderful about my 4 year old son with Celiacs. He had burgers with cheese off the children’s menu (no bun) but had a dedicated fryer for French fries. They also send a manager to the table to discuss your order. She checked on any item we had a question about. GF ice cream and syrup. Great experience. Everyone is very friendly. No specific gf bread items or menu though.

As everyone mentioned, extra precautions are taken with those who have allergies or an autoimmune disorder, such as Celiac disease. The chef personally reviews options with you and writes on a red ticket! They have a wid variety of options from chicken fajitas with corn tortillas, pasta, burgers and bbq sandwiches with buns. Make sure to let your waitress know you have an allergy prior to ordering the above mentioned items so special precautions can be implemented and cross contamination avoided!
