They characterize themselves as gluten friendly. I had the protein burger, which wasn't very exciting, no condiments so i had to ask for mustard. The lettuce wrap was one piece of wimpy lettuce so i ended up eating it with a knife and fork. They do have a gf bun option for a dollar extra. The fryers are not dedicated.

They say they are gluten sensitive. All their food is gluten cross contaminated. They cooked my eggs in a separate pan and I still got sick. I couldn't order anything but eggs and the fruit bowl. No meats or anything else.

Their gluten free buns are really good and not too much of an additional charge (I believe it's $0.75). There's a fairly large selection of burgers and sandwiches you could substitute the bun for, but really that's your only option. Overall, very limited gluten free menu.

GF was not clearly marked but was stated after I asked about it. That said my sandwich was tasty. Service was ok

The French Fries are gluten free and they offer gluten free buns.

They've came a long way! I tried an omelette (w/o milk or cheese as I don't do dairy). As soon as the order hit the kitchen, the manager came out and greeted me. He explained to me how the food was prepared and protected from cross contamination by using separate pans and utensils. I was impressed. He again came out with my safe food. Restaurant is focused on creating safe conditions for those with gluten allergies and celiac disease. He also said that most foods are made fresh and you can customize what you want. I'm doing four stars because they don't have a plethora of naturally gluten-free products, but there are possibilities!

Didn't like the food there. Sorry to say, but it was kinda gross. Got my daughter a burger with a gluten free bun and after an hour her stomach hurt. It also gave my husband stomach pains.

Bleah!! Both hubby and I got glutenized. I had salmon and hubby had a salad. Found a fry under my fish. Fries are not gf. Food was yucky too. Never had greasy salmon before. And service was slow. Sooo sick.

Hit or miss whether the server/staff/manager knows what to do or what's available. No separate menu but dressings are listed as gluten free or not. According to their corporate website they will work with Allergies and are developing gluten free options.

Every time I have tried to eat here the employees act like they have never heard of gluten and wanted to know if that is cheese. I turned around and left. Not worth getting ill because of untrained staff. Not celiac safe.

Good food, but they do not offer GF buns or bread. Not a lot of GF options.

No gluten free items?

I used to be able to eat here and they would modify things so it was safe to eat. They must have changed managers though because I recently went here and ordered my usual omelet with the modifications and informed the waiter of my gluten issue. Halfway through my meal I had a big reaction and they were very reluctant to ameliorate the problem. Never eating here again!

Their chocolate lava cake and brownie are both gluten-free and really good. Other than that, you can mostly have breakfast with no toast/biscuit.

Went fine! They have some dressings and a molten cake labeled as gluten free, but that's all. Waitress did inform the kitchen when prepping the meal. My husband is Celiac and breakfast food is usually a safe bet - the omelette and French fries worked out and he didn't get sick!

Went to Black Bear diner (Roseville) for breakfast today. No celiac menu available, I ensured my server knew of my celiac and asked this to be communicated to the chef. Ordered, one of their eggs scramble, after a few bites, started to itch. I stressed to my server the importance of avoiding cross contamination before ordering. I would have left if not for his reassurance, "We serve special diets. I understand." The food came, couple of bites, Started feeling sick. I asked if everything was cleaned before preparing my meal. He stated, "I let the cook know, I was not back there watching, hope your itching stops soon. Fellow Celiacs know, The, Itch, is one of the least of concerns. 45 minutes have passed, now nauseated, I was exposed to cross contaimination at Black bear diner. I would not recommend this diner for Celiac community.

They don't have anything gluten free. Went there and the waiter had no clue what I was even taking about when I asked for an allergy menu so he had to ask the manager. Turns out they don't even have one. Don't know why this restaurant is even on here

I called and was told that their only gluten free menu item was the "Garden Harvest Salad".

if you have celiac, don't bother. One salad is gluten free and that's it. There are many items on the menu that could be easily made gluten free, but I'm guessing they know they have lots of cross contamination.

There is only one GF item on the menu. I've had their GF salad selection a couple of times, but it doesn't ring any bells for me. For one, it is way too sweet for this diabetic with celiac. This time I tried the bacon cheeseburger salad with vinegar & oil. The servers are not very well versed on GF.

Went for breakfast and had a excellent scramble with fresh fruit and cottage cheese on the side. My waiter knew all about celiac and cross contamination, and was very helpful. I'd go again, though it did make me a little sad to see all those delicious-looking baked goods.

There was nothing on the menu that was gluten-free unless the standby of iceberg lettuce and lemon wedges. I can get that at home. The waiter didn't have any suggestions.

There was only ONE gluten free item on the menu. They said if I knew what I could eat the could fix me like grilled chicken. Duh I know that if I want to eat an animal how to order. I can even order a hamburger and not eat the bun. My husband is happy with his food but this shouldn't be listed on a gluten free restaurant finder.
