There is an entire portion of the menu that is gluten sensitive. It is very clear on the menu that there isn't dedicated fryers. I had the rosemary chicken with garlic green beans and a baked potato. It was delicious:)

No dedicated area and this is indicated on the menu. The food was great and I did not have a reaction like when I get gluten in a place.

This was a FANTASTIC option for our extremely gluten sensitive family. Their GF buns are DELICIOUS - our fave brand. GF-capable items are clearly marked on the regular menu, AND they have a GF menu. Our server, an ADORABLE girl named Morgan, was helpful and knowledgeable, and she also communicated our needs well with the kitchen and manager. No cross contamination reactions to follow, and they even have creme brulee for dessert!!! We had an EXCELLENT meal and would go back again for sure.

They have a separate GF menu and a very knowledgeable staff. Very good food... Family had a burgers and fries, a steak, and spinach and kale salad... All delicious! Very friendly and attentive wait staff also! We'll eat here again!

They have great gluten free buns. However, every time I’ve had their fries I’ve gotten sick even though they said they were safe. Not worth it!!!

I have Celiac Disease and have eaten at the Lees Summit location several times. I've had their Burger without a bun, their Fries, Salmon, and several of their Salads. I have not had any adverse reactions but I do think they fry their Fries with breaded things so you may want to avoid them if you're vunerable to cross contamination. The Staff hasn't been especially knowledgable so I typically talk to a Manager when I order. They don't have a ton of menu items that are GF but they do have a few options and a great Happy Hour!

I ate from the gluten free menu choices and became very ill. I ended up in the emergency room a few hours after eating there. I have eaten there before with no problems but after getting so severely ill I will not be chancing it again.

There is no longer a gluten free menu, there are gluten sensitive alternatives to a few regular menu items. After speaking with my server explaining my needs, requesting no bun or bacon with my meal, I received both items. They quickly replaced my meal, however within 4 hour after eating my celiac symptoms kicked in. I should have left the restaurant and not gotten anything to eat because there were warning signs in this establishment’s attitude that celiac disorder was not taken seriously. However, being sick for 8 days and losing 10 pounds has made clear we need to advocate for what we need.

They really cared about my daughter’s celiac disease and worked with the kitchen to make sure that her flatbread was safe. She is symptomatic immediately if she has any cross-contamination and we had zero issues. Thank you so much for making dining out enjoyable!

I had dinner here last night and was pleasantly surprised! I thank Terry Holland the manager for a really nice evening! I have celiac, Terry was award of this and made sure my meal was gluten free and was not cross contaminated! I had previous complained that the restaurant not gluten friendly and Terry was quick to respond and make thinks right. I swore I would not eat there again, but glad I gave it a second chance and will not hesitate to eat there again thanks to Terry!

They have a GS menu. I ate lunch and had the scallops. I am also allergic to soy and the waitress confirmed with the kitchen everything was safe for me. The scallops were good.

Have eaten here several times. Last time I went the manager came out and talked with me. Let me know about some of the items on their menu. It’s was a very pleasant experience. I would go back again.

Shared steak wedge salad with blue cheese no croutons no beets. Watching calories and carbs. Highly allergic to gluten. This was a great choice. Shared with Mom. Was just enough to satisfy. I don’t risk fried foods.

The switches the menu a while back to “gluten friendly” basically they no longer care if your food is gluten free but they can serve you something that doesn’t contain gluten. I got really sick after eating here even though I ordered something they told me wouldn’t be contaminated with wheat from other items on the menu.

Gluten free ingredients they say. No good labeling on the menu. You can substitute the GF bun, but no way to tell if the rest of the ingredients in a particular item are GF. Upon questioning and reading the menu, no significant effort to avoid cross contamination. I got the Cajun Chicken grill with GF bun, but was suspicious of the sauce that came with it, so I asked. Even though I had specified GF prep, they sent the meal out with a sauce that used flour as a thickener.OK if GF is just a dietary preference, but they have a long ways to go to recommend for Gluten Intolerant, let alone Celiac.

The gluten free buns are so good, you can't tell there's no gluten!

I have good experiences here the gluten free menu is not extensive, however what there is, is really good. Make sure to mention you are celiac or sensitive and they will make sure everything is done right.

Stopped by for lunch today, and the Chef Jessica made an awesome catch that the BBQ sauce for their GF menu had modified food starch. She made some substitutions so my food would be safe. Excellent customer service!

Do NOT eat here if you have any gluten intolerance or are Celiac. They completely lacked knowledge about any of the GS items on their menu and had I listened to any of their recommendations I would've had a major issue.

They are not gluten-free menu options: they are "gluten-sensitive" options, which is a bogus term that sounds nice but means absolutely nothing since basically the company is not willing to commit the resources to actually make sure food served is gluten-free. Avoid if you have medical reasons to avoid gluten. Indulge if you are a just fad dieting or not actually gluten sensitive.

The butternut squash and chicken sausage lasagna was fabulous! The menu states they are gluten sensitive- no designated space for prep. They have many gluten sensitive offerings including GF buns.

Horrible! I cannot even begin to tell you how many times i told them i had celiac and could not have gluten. i even spoke to the cook who came to the table. worst food ever. i had good luck with the Springfield location so i thought but as it turns out...they both glutened me! i say poor management responsible for that. they need to educate their employees on the severity of food allergies.

They have revamped their menu to include gluten free options and even organic ones too. The food and gluten free drink options were amazing and there are specials almost daily. I had no reactions from eating here. Be sure to checkout out the all day happy hour on Sundays as well as the 3 course meals for $18.95.

Love the food but not a dedicated frier, so not totally celiac friendly... but I still keep coming back because I can survive without fries :-) :-) that Brentwood chicken sandwich with a gf bun is amazing!!

Ordered from the GF menu several times. Each time, it took an inordinate amount of time to prepare my meal and my other tablemates were already done with their meals when mine was served.

The food on the regular menu is marked clearly with "GS" for Gluten Sensitive. they are clear about not having a dedicated kitchen space or area so if you have a true allergy this place may not be for you, but I am gluten intolerant and was very happy!

Horrible. Stated twice that I needed a GF bun, was brought a burger on a bun that looked just like everyone else's... it was a regular bun! Then was told I didn't specify... they did being me a gf bun to put the same burger on... needless to say, everyone else ate and I'm still hungry.

After coming here three times and ordering the same thing each time, server informed me that there was no dedicated French fryer despite me asking the same question on the previous visits and being told that the fries were in a dedicated fryer. I had ordered the fries on previous visits based on that information. Manager confirmed no dedicated fryer. I'm also dairy free and I asked what sides could be done gf/df and was told the brown rice. The rice came out covered in margarine and smelling like soy sauce. The rice is not listed on gf menu. Never coming back here. They can't make you a safe meal.

The cheese has flour to keep it separated. There are gluten free options but very minimal. I haven't had a good experience there.

It is not a gluten free menu. They call it gluten sensitive. The menu states that certain things are gluten sensitive but when I asked the waitress(who had no knowledge of the menu) she told me the chef said that some of them were not. Very disappointed.

I'm new to the GF world. Their menu says foods are gluten free. I had the parm fries and even asked the waiter who confirmed they were GF. Didn't think I needed to ask if they had a separate fryer. Needless to say I got sick. I will return to try other options.

Just stopped here with my celiac child, the gf menu listed on their website and the one we were given in the restaurant were different. They fry everything in a common fryer!! They did have gf buns but did not would like they could guarantee anything. We left, not worth making him sick. Nice people just not as advertised 😕

I've eaten here about a half dozen time and loved it until my most recent visit when I found some form of breading in my fish tacos which they said were GF. I asked my server what was it, she proceeded to tell me it was GF and made at a GF station. It was definitely A PIECE OF A CHICKEN STRIP!!! Highly disappointed!!!!!!
