There isn’t much gluten free options on the menu, and the options that seem GF are sharing the same fryer as all of the other food. I wouldn’t mind coming here for a salad and a drink, except the wait staff spoke to me as if I was stupid for going out in public looking for a meal that I could eat. She cut me off mid-sentence just to tell me nothing on their menu is celiac safe.

I asked the waitress for a gluten sensitive menu and the manager immediately came out to talk to me personally! Everyone was so friendly and made sure that the grill was cleaned and ready for my order. While there aren’t very many options, I ordered the grilled chicken salad and enjoyed it!

Most burgers and sandwiches can be put on a lettuce wrap or bun less. Also the fries and tater tot’s are made in a dedicated fryer but just be sure to confirm that when you get there. I had no issues at all. The Loaded tots appetizer was to die for!

Manager discussed gluten free options from the menu and was very knowledgeable. Ensured meal was not cross contaminated and gloves were changed even to bring food out to the table. Bartenders knowledgeable on drink options as well. Food and cocktail was yummy too!

While they can show you a gluten free menu they are honest about not having separate kitchen space and will not guarantee no cross contamination.

They offer a GF menu however it hasn’t been updated. Server had no clue about what was available for gf diets. She also did not seem to want to accommodate any requests I had to make my experience safe. I chose a grilled chicken sandwich without the bun. My symptoms are so mild (didn’t know I had celiac until a biopsy confirmed it) and do not show themselves for 48 hours. I didn’t have an issue but their nonchalance is why I give 1 star.

They did not have a gluten free menu. When I asked the waitress, she said they used to have one but got rid of it because they couldn't guarantee gluten free. She was kind enough to go into the kitchen where they had a paper posted for the cooks about allergens in all of their menu items and a couple of things were listed there as okay for people with a gluten allergy. I got the chicken tacos that were on the appetizer menu and the waitress of course wrote down that I had a gluten allergy. They were really good but I was definitely anxious that there was some cross contamination. Thankfully I felt fine the next day and didn't have any reaction. Disappointed that they got rid of their menu but my waitress was so accommodating and kind.

Not sure about this place... told server I had celiac and cannot have any gluten and asked for gluten free appetizers. Chef said chicken nachos was one of them. Got the chicken nachos and when I was almost done eating I noticed a tater tot was in my food and it was cross contaminated. Had to send plate back.

I called ahead and they said they were working on their gluten free menu but could easily accommodate. When I got there and mentioned I was gluten free the waitress said they could accommodate by “just removing the bread”. She was not very helpful and there was not much on the menu to work with. Drinks were great though.

Definitely NOT gluten friendly. Even the salad came with a huge piece of bread on the plate (the bread wasn’t mentioned on the menu). So if you get a salad make sure to let them know!!! Although, I will say the drinks are good.

Had a great waitress, Skylar, who understood celiac needs as she has a friend come for brunch at this establishment regularly and not have a reaction. She went over the menu with me and explained chips and tots have their own fryers. I didn't react from the appetizers, and haven't tried the salad or poke bowl (should be gluten free) yet but was told the kitchen can be alerted to allergens. There was no review for this location and I was nervous but Skylar was really great and it was nice not having stomach pain later.

Thank goodness for our waitress Denise. We ended up at this restaurant unexpectedly with a big group. The gluten free menu did not have a lot of choices and did say that it could not guarantee cross contamination. When I spoke with our waitress about the tacos ( according to the gluten free menu it said “all tacos” as they were made out of corn) she informed me they were flour ones now. She suggested the roasted cauliflower and salmon. The cauliflower was delicious but the salmon was so small and very bland. I wish I had taken a picture because it was so small and my entire meal cost 18 dollars. I thanked Denise so much but did tell her they shouldn’t be giving out this menu to folks that need gfree as its not accurate although I know that’s not in her control. I was lucky I ended up with someone who was knowledgeable and I didn’t get sick. I normally plan out the restaurant for myself but I won’t be going back. Barely any choices and overpriced. The rest of my group felt the same way in that their food was just ok and overpriced. Thank you for our waitress!

The food was good but our waitress had no idea about gluten free foods and became very rude when i asked if she could ask her manager if they had an allergy menu. Not the place to go and i don't think we'll be returning since there are so many other options near by with better service.

No gluten free menu. Server said I could have “a salad without croutons or a sandwich without bread” neither of which made me feel safe eating here. I’m going to get grilled chicken and broccoli and hope for the best.

So little care today we didn’t order. Waitress scoffed as soon as we asked for a GF menu. Once we got the menu there were very few options, no GF bread for burgers and what seemed to be little knowledge overall about what constitutes gluten free...

Although they had a separate gluten free menu, I was violently ill within an hour of eating here. Shared fryers for all fried foods and when I asked the server if he was sure my items were gluten free after I was feeling unwell, he said he wasn’t sure.

I had a much better experience than the other two reviewers, so maybe they’ve made some recent changes. The waitress was very polite and brought me a gluten free menu when I asked for it. When she brought me my food she made sure everything was okay before leaving. I had the buffalo ranch salad with blue cheese dressing substituted for the buffalo ranch dressing. It was very good. I would go back there.

The waitress flat out said they didn’t have anything gluten free and didn’t really seem to care to explore any options. I asked to speak to a manager who said he’d find a GF menu. He was gone a long time and came back with a printout. We won’t go back again.

Not overly impressed! Can you eat here? Yes! Are there a variety of choices? Nah! I will tell you it was the worst service weve had there and my first time back since being gluten sensitive. The Gluten Friendly menu is pretty tiny. I had a good salad and my sis and I split some tots. Their menu is just the reg. menu with "no this, hold this, sub this" jargon beside it...

there is a gluten "friendly" menu that made me and my mother both uncomfortable because the information was incorrect and we were unable to order because of how uncomfortable we were. do not come here if you are diagnosed with celiac or gluten sensitivity or any other gluten free disease.

They have a gluten "friendly" menu which means they can't guarantee there is no gluten. Staff seemed annoyed to explain gluten friendly. I had a salad that was very good though.

There is a separate fryer for tots and fries. The gluten free menus mentioned that the fryers were right next to each other so there could be some cross contamination. I risked it as I don't have gastrointestinal symptoms. I felt fairly comfortable eating there.

There was no mention of anything gluten free on the menu, and the server did not seem even remotely interested in figuring out if anything might be. Perhaps the first reviewer is friends with the owner? I see no reason for Bar Louie to be on this app / website whatsoever, and would not recommend anyone who has to eat GF go here. Fortunately, Luxe Burger Bar is excellent and across the plaza. (We were just trying to see if we could get served here faster for those tacos... Luxe was crazy busy.)

Ask the server for a GF menu and she'll grab one from the back. Includes both GF as on menu or what they will change from the menu to be GF. Server was great! Bruschetta with tortilla chips was delish! The wedge salad was ahhhhmazing.

Their menu is not gf; they say it's "gluten friendly" and do not claim to have any true gf options (other than salad!). It's misleading for them to even have a separate menu for people looking for gf options. Their food is delicious, but I will not go back again.

Out date GF menu and some of the items on there they did not make anymore, I asked if there was anything else that was GF that was not on the menu and he said no. Later after I sent him back to talk to the chef a few times, which might I add he did not seem to thrilled about it even though I explained how important this was. He came back with another GF menu after my party ordered and informed me that the item I ordered was not GF, so long story short not very helpful for people with celiacs.
