You can eat gluten free here if you are very clear and specific as the staff vary in their knowledge of gluten. In my experience, they will put a croissant on any salad unless you clearly say you don’t want that. That is a great customer service thing if you don’t have a gluten issue, but not at all ideal if you do. I’ve done the choose two lunch of salad and baked potato and I’ve also had the Key West Chicken and shrimp. Both tasted fine and I didn’t get sick. This usually isn’t my first choice of a place to eat, but I can make it work if needed.
They have a dedicated GF menu. Fries are cooked separately. I always bring my own bun due to being gluten, dairy, egg and soy free. Enjoyed dinner out with family.
They have a gluten free menu and the staff was very accommodating to my allergies. The manager came out to make sure everything was covered. They read the ingredients list for everything I ordered since I also have a soy allergy. Food was good too!
They have a separate GF menu, but be cautious they say their Fries are GF but the are fried in shared grease with chicken tenders and such. I have had their grilled fish, shrimp, and chicken (without bourbon sauce) and have not gotten sick or cross contamination. Sides wise I’ve had the salad, broccoli, rice, coleslaw, and corn and I was fine.
updated 2018: Travis left and moved to FL. New management doesn’t care the way he did. Their GF menu options are so small and I’ve been cross-contaminated. The people make all the difference. Info from 2016: Ask for Chef/Manager Travis. He will come talk to you about GF options. He's a wonderful chef and you will get food with great flavor. He's very knowledgeable and has even tweaked items from the main menu to make them GF for me. Fantastic place! The waitstaff gets it too.
Gluten friendly menu with quite a few options. Separate frier for the french fries. I recommend Cheddar’s for kids and adults.
When we arrived I asked for a gluten free menu, when I read that there could potentially be cross -contamination in their statement, I asked out server how “safe” the food would truly be in her opinion. She got the kitchen manager, who was super friendly as well, and they made sure that my order, being celiac, would be 100% ok for me to eat.... just make sure you say something about it prior too and you’ll be good to go :)
The do have a an allergy menu. U must ask for it. Also make it a point to tell the server that u have an allergy, it’s not a preference. The reason for 3 stars, the sauce I couldn’t have still came on my plate and I had them take it back. Nothing, thankfully, was contaminated.
They have a whole gluten free menu with probably upwards of 20 options to choose from. I’ve tried both the Dijon chicken and the Baja chicken and haven’t gotten sick! I’m glad to have found this new option for eating out in Lincoln and Omaha! I’m celiac and haven’t had issues.
I ate here yesterday and ordered off of their “gluten sensitive” menu and told them I had celiac. The waiter assured me that he would tell the kitchen. I got my salad and there was a large croissant placed right on top. I am newly diagnosed, three weeks actually, and have taken great precautions in my kitchen and diet and have been feeling great! This was the first time I had ventured to eat out at a restaurant. I made the mistake of just removing the croissant and not sending it back and thought it would be fine. I got sick about two hours later with nausea headache, chills and diarrhea that lasted about 24 hours. I have learned my lesson about gluten contamination. Who knows what else happened back in the kitchen. So I would say be very careful if you eat at cheddars, I don’t think they know what gluten is.
Even though they have a gluten free menu they recommended I not eat there and I'm sensitive not Celiac. We were there for my moms bday so I sat for ninety minutes with a tea. They didn't even know the chips were subject to cross contact in the fryer. Worst experience ever. Never going back. Didn't want to make any effort to see that I had something safe to eat.
The general manager understands gluten allergies and went into the kitchen to confirm exact ingredients in the sauce on what I wanted to order before I placed my order, and helped me modify a menu item to be gluten free. I ended up having grilled Salmon with a baked Sweet Potato and Broccoli. And they grilled the salmon in a clean pan to prevent cross contamination.
I have Celiac disease and had a great meal.
Update: It's a "scratch kitchen" now. Got a GF menu and had the Dijon chicken. Delish! 4 years ago in the summer I didn't ask for a gf menu. I ordered their grilled lemon pepper chicken, and I enjoyed it. So far as I know, none of their soups are gf.
I was impressed with the number of gluten free selections on the menu, including gluten free kids meals. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and even double checked with the kitchen when I was unsure about a selection. We will be back. Food was delicious
I asked for a GF menu and the after the server brought it, the manager came to my table and went through the many options with me. The fries are GF due to their dedicated fryer. I had the Baja chicken and the portion was so big that I couldn't eat it all. I was very pleasantly surprised by this restaurant.
They have a full gluten free menu and lots of options. Kid friendly and large portions!
Waitress not only didn't have knowledge of gluten allergy, she was annoyed I had so many questions about the food. Never told me rice was coming with fish, which I had to turn back. It tasted like a salt stick! Gave this place a second try due to new GF menu. Writing to headquarters to tell them to train their people regarding allergies. No sense in having a GF menu if the staff doesn't care.
My daughter HAS to eat gluten free so she ordered the nachos which she'd had before. However, this time, they made her extremely ill within 15 minutes of finishing. So be careful. I love eating here and I really appreciate the comment about asking for the chef to make her dish.
We sat forever waiting on a server, so I wasn't able to ask anyone about getting a gluten free menu. Getting fed up on waiting, I got up from our table and found a cluster of servers standing around. I asked one of them for a gluten free menu. I was told that I'd have to go and get my own from the hostess stand. Ironically, the server that had me get my own menu was our server. I came back from getting my menu to find her taking orders at my table. She seen me, walked away and sent a different server over to take care of our table. I'm now completely nervous to order anything other than a salad. The new server came over and asked what I wanted to eat. I let him know that it was medically necessary that my salad was gluten free. And to please let the kitchen know to take extra care when making my salad. I asked to please omit any crouton or bread. My salad arrived with a crescent roll right on top. I sent it back and declined anything to eat. I gave a one star review on here, as a zero star wasn't an option. I will NEVER return!
Revised gluten free menu! Best part is the fries are GF!
