Salad was served with crackers and biscuits although waitress was told 3 times no crackers..no croutons..no biscuits. She offered to take the crackers off and have the kitchen replace food just where the crackers were. NO! Hubby had salad for late dinner.

Like everywhere else that isn’t a dedicated gluten free restaurant, they can’t say it’s for sure gluten free but I eat here at least three times a week and have no issues. I have all the grilled fish, hamburger steak or grilled chicken tenders. They have a variety of sides I can eat, too. And it’s always good!

I ate off their gluten sensitive menu and I was also very clear that I had an allergy; however, I was horrible sick the next day so they must have cross contaminated my food.

We've eaten there twice and both times hubby felt sick. Not horrible sick but defiantly I don't feel good need to lay down sick. The last time we went the manager came and talked to us and told us what was truly safe and what wasn't so he ordered eggs and the sweet apples. Came out with a biscuit in the eggs and when we pointed out he can't have that he's Celiac the waitress rolled her eyes and took it away and came brought new eggs but he still got sick. The only reason I didn't give this a 1 star is the manager tried to be real helpful which is always nice but we won't be going again. Meat is cooked on the same skillet as the pancakes. She did assure us the eggs are on their own surface but still....

Handy laminated allery menu for no egg, no wheat, no soy, etc. It says to notify the manager if cross contamination is a concern for you. No protein on the list (thus my 3 star rating).

Asked for a gluten free menu and was handed an allergy book. I asked the server for information on food prep and informed him I am Celiac. He said the salad was prepared separately, and if on the allergy menu, should be okay. I think there’s too much risk of cross contamination to be really celiac safe.

They state GF menu, however it is only veggies and fruits that are GF. No meats, pasta, etc. Also, wouldn't recommend for celiac due to cross contamination. I had mashed potatoes and carrots for dinner.😐

Not gluten free at all. Within 10 mins of eating what I thought was gluten free (grilled pork chop, green beans and turnip greens) I was sick. Waitresses did not understand was gluten free or celiac was. Very disappointed

Their gluten free options are very very limited. It’s one little tiny page. Sucks. Go somewhere else.

They have a few gluten free items, but it’s not celiac safe. They make biscuits all day long in a shared kitchen. I’ve had a manager tell me they can not say anything is “gluten free” once it’s prepared.

This is an excellent choice. They will have a manager prepare the food, and they are aware of celiac and very careful. My daughter has eaten here numerous times and has not had any problems .

Julie the Manager cooked the food and delivered it to the table personally to ensure no cross contamination. Melissa was our server and was very helpful with our food selection. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Like all Cracker Barrels, there is not a GF menu, but an allergen menu. Check out the wheat free options, and avoid things cooled on the common cooktop. Eggs, baked potato, sweet potato, corn, carrots always safe for me.

They have a very limited allergen menu with a wheat-free section. Really, the only choice for lunch is to get plain eggs and fruit. Some of the staff does seem to understand about gluten allergies.

If you just order a plain hash brown (make sure that you say “Can I get hash browns please, but make sure it’s not the casserole,”), bacon, and a fruit bowl it will give you just that. Not very knowledgeable on GF foods, but otherwise, great!!!

First of all they messed up my whole family’s order. We all the got the wrong food. Second of all, after specifically saying i had a gluten allergy and that no bread or wheat product can touch my food or plate, they came out with a piece of bread on my plate! And then they tried to just take it off and give me the same meal. After i had them make me new food, the waitress and even manager had the worst attitude with me and my family. It was the worst experience and made me never want to go back. If you’re celiac i would avoid this place

If you have celiac you basically have a few sides to choose from. I guess it's a good for a snack. They do have a gluten sensitive menu.

There is a VERY limited menu for gluten free. The top of the menu states that there WILL be cross contamination. I had to eat there so I had the baked potato and a salad. Our server was very sweet.

They have an allergy menu which was helpful and then we talked to the manager who was very knowledgeable and went into the back to clean and prepare the kitchen for out meal. Safe, friendly, and yummy. I was pleasantly surprised by this!

The first thing they did was send over their manager to give me a menu. It had a section for each of the 8 major allergens and he items that are free/ can be prepared free of them.I had the Chef Country Salad (sans the croutons and ham pieces) with Honey Mustard and it was AMAZING.I have celiac, and I was worried to go here because I hadn't been to one since years before I was diagnosed. I never got sick from the salad either. I was impressed. It could be possible that this isn't a celiac friendly place, but it is definitely wheat intolerance friendly based on what I saw from the menu.

Cracker Barrel takes gluten free very seriously. The combination of a knowledgeable staff and gluten free menu has been a major plus.

The staff was super knowledgeable, and our waitress even offered to bring the manager over to speak to me. They don’t have any gluten free breads but there is still plenty to choose from. When you place your name for a table simply ask to see the allergy menu. I ended up getting a salad with Caesar dressing and our waitress opened a new bottle of dressing and cut fresh ingredients instead of taking them from the open bins and prepared my food in a separate section of the kitchen. She took extra care to put me at ease and even brought my food out while still wearing her gloves! Over all it was a great meal and I feel comfortable eating here again.

Disappointed in new menu. For lunch or dinner there is no GF option. It deals overall in side dishes. No protein. Manager was helpful and oversaw fish grilling - no seasoning. All went well this time. Old menu had a fish option I always chose and had no issues. Yes they are concerned about safety but have taken it to the point that it is impossible to have a meal from their new menu. Need to rethink! Why can other restaurants without a separate kitchen, and who are concerned about safety, provide GF meal options and CB cannot.

You can order your steak, and ask for it to be cooked in aluminum foil and served to you that way and you can feel safe your not getting cc. And it’s very tender and moist. Also ask for spicy grilled catfish, grilled chicken tenderloins and pork chops to be cooked that way. The manager is very helpful in trying to assure your food is not cc.

The staff here is amazing. we explained what we needed, they gave us the gluten free menu, made sure we understood that there were gluten items in the kitchen and let us know that they were cleaning the grill before they cooked my daughters food. We appreciate their efforts!

If they had a gluten free alternative to the toast or pancakes I'd give them 5 stars. They are the only place near this area open on Sunday, and still have a gluten friendly menu. Big plus they have turkey sausage!

They had an allergy menu available but the choices were very limited. Didn’t even have bacon on the list! At least for breakfast they didn’t have much to choose from.

This is a great breakfast, lunch and dinner place. They do not have specific gluten free menu but anything that is NOT fried has not been a problem. Just ask for grilled. I am very sensitive and so is my brother and neither of us has been sick. We were in town for a military graduation and were very limited on where we were able to eat one of two places. Thank you cracker barrel!

Dined on 20 August 2017 for dinner. Limited options. Ate a baked potato with butter only -- no issues. Did not feel comfortable trying anything else on the menu.

Staff was exceptional. They do have a very limited gluten free menu but our waiter was very helpful and provided it right away. It’s mostly limited to vegetables and potatoes and fruit. I had eggs and grits and fried apples with turkey sausage. It has caused no problems. I would say for breakfast it’s fairly easy to eat GF. Beyond that you are in for a lot of veggies. Wish they had GF bread.

The single most disappointing “gluten free” menu I have ever witnessed. Great if you want salad or apple slices. If you want anything else, you’re SOL
