This my go to restaurant. I love they have foods that are really on the menu. Not just meat and veggies. I have eaten here 6 times in the last few months- no reaction. I have a wheat allergy and very sensitive to contamination. But no issues here.

Had a gluten free pizza and the dough was like cardboard with no seasoning. Not a cauliflower crust, but wouldn’t go back. Better options in town.

They did not say much but the menu said all the food on the gluten free menu could have cross-contamination but they would try their best

The backed ziti was so good. It was a large portion of food. Also had the artichoke dip. It is not labeled gluten free but it comes with corn chips.

Very knowledgeable staff, different equipment for gf crust. Had the Polynesian pizza, and it was possibly the best pizza I’ve ever had. There are a lot of gf options too!

They have a gluten free menu which is nice, but clearly states that they can’t avoid cross contamination. I had Tuscan pasta which was disappointingly flavorless, and I’m pretty sure it was corn pasta which is my least favorite. I wish I’d had a GF pizza instead.

I am a very sensitive celiac with an equal reaction to dairy. The wait staff checked to make sure that the GF pizza crust was dairy free and when I ordered my pizza without cheese they offered soy cheese (ew, no) which was a lovely surprise and would be nice for someone who thinks soy cheese is edible ha! I had no reaction to the food and the pizza was delicious, even without cheese!

They have quite a bit of options but I always get a gluten free flatbread and have never had any issues or felt sick afterwards. It’s a nice sit down pizza plce

We ordered delivery so we did not see the facility

We only had pizza here. My son told me the GF crust was the best he's ever had. The crust had a softer texture than most and a very buttery flavor. The rest of us had regular pizzas. Toppings on all of them were quite good.

My son has Celiac and he ate their GF pizza that we ordered online for delivery. I typed in the online instructions to please be careful of cross-contamination because of his disease. He had no reaction and loved the pizza so we'll definitely be repeat customers here. The rest of us really enjoyed their regular pizzas too. Certainly not a cheap, discount-pizza, kind of place, the quality is very good.

Had a gluten free menu (though it does specify that cross contamination may occur). Options for apps, salad, pasta and pizza dishes, as well as a flourless chocolate cake dessert. All in all, pretty pleased with this find.

This place was fantastic! Huge gluten free menu including pasta cooked separately. Waitress very well versed on gluten cross contamination issues. When they take a gf order they are required to flag it in electronically as well as personally tell the manger. When food is brought out it is announced as gluten free. Three of us in my family have celiac and we were able to eat here without any issues!

I have a dairy allergy too, so I ordered the Tuscan Penne. It was delicious! They were very careful about making it safe for me. The only reason I’m giving this four stars is because the server warned me that the pizzas and flatbread are right by other glutenized items in the oven, so there’s plenty of risk for cross-contamination. She said the pasta is about the safest option because it’s prepared in its own area and handled only by one person. But they were very careful and accommodating. Great place!

So their GF pizza is super good. But I do feel sick afterwards almost every time. I have not tried their pasta yet. So maybe that’ll be better. I wouldn’t go here if you’re celiac. On a lighter note. Their flourless chocolate cake is like the best chocolate fudge cake thing I have ever had!! And will go back just for that if anything else!

I really liked there gluten free foods. I’m celiac and I am pretty sensitive and I didn’t get sick. I have gone there multiple time and they have always been very friendly about my condition, and have great service. I would say if you are looking for some gluten free pizza I would request Mackenzie River. The only thing is that they only have one dive pizza crust which is a 16 inch size crust.

This place is incredible for celiac/gluten allergy individuals! The staff is very knowledgable about gluten free options and the bbq sauce they use is also gluten free! They have a separate gluten free menu. I got the rancher and added pineapple and it was absolutely one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. The crust was absolutely amazing. It tasted so good the first day and still good the next day cold. They also have delicious huckleberry lemonade. The price is extremely reasonable, the customer service is fantastic and very warm friendly, pleasant and quick. I would highly recommend stopping here and was so glad I did thanks to the gluten free finder app!

I’m here often and haven’t had any issues. If I’m unsure about the sever, I’ll grab the manager and they’ve always taken care of me. I’ve even DoorDashed a few times.

The buffalo chicken pizza is fire. Big fan. :)

Omg amazing food amazing service....We had Shayna she was beyond sweet. I wanted a drink and she went and checked all ingredients to see in the end I couldn’t but I appreciated that she was keeping me from getting sick. Me and my daughter shared a gluten pizza and it was amazing and definitely enough almost too much for two people. We were even able to half it so we could each have what we wanted. Their gluten free house salad with pears was amazing as well. I would definitely go back and I would totally recommend. Wish we had one in Canada. Whole menu of gluten free options

There was a separate gluten free menu which was nice. The food was good not great. Everyone who was not gluten free enjoyed their meals. The gluten free pizza had nice flavor but was undercooked (which is a good sign, it means that it was cooked on something and not straight on a grill). The service was very slow but friendly, so it ended up being a good thing that we ordered an appetizer (the artichoke dip was good).

Staff informed me that pizza is baked in same conveyor but on separate, dedicated aluminum pans with parchment paper underneath, and cut with a separate, dedicated pizza cutter. They also offered to change gloves. Pizza was very good, and gluten free crust was a little chewy but tasty. Overall I would feel safe eating here if I inform the staff.

My kids have celiac and they really enjoyed it. One had the Apple Chicken Flatbread and the other two had pizza. The server and cooks knew about celiac which gave us more confidence. Kids said it was fantastic, and the one that ate the flatbread is normally a very picky eater. They finished with the gluten free chocolate cake. Highly recommend.

The food is good (according to my husband) but the GF pizza is not safe for Celiacs. So then you're left with steaks or salads with modifications.

I called ahead of time with concerns of cross contamination. Lady on phone explained all of their procedures and willingness to do anything to help me feel safe. When we arrived we requested to be seated in her area. She went and talked to kitchen staff and the manager on duty prepared my meal. They went to great lengths to make sure it was safe. It was super yummy food, too. Definitely recommend this location.
