Items listed as gluten sensitive on the menu, no separate menu. They offer a gf bun. They offer Beyond Burger. That’s what I got. It was a thick burger and tasted real good. No dedicated fryer so I didn’t get fries. I am also dairy free so there wasn’t much to choose from. They offered fresh fruit as a side but I declined.

I got there expecting many gluten free things. The website has many gluten free sides. However, when we got there, none of the sides were gluten free. They do have a very thick gluten free bun. I got a single burger. So far, no contamination. I am very disappointed because I got a burger that is not the best, and no side in case I was still hungry.

the Gatlinburg TGIFridays was not ideal for Celiac. wait staff not very knowledgeable about GF and the online menu is not available here. basically a burger - they DID have GF buns but a SHARED fryer (not safe) so NO fries- got broccoli but had to pay extra. was OK

The menu items were marked for Gluten Sensitive, but when I told the waitress that I had Celiacs, she made sure to write down what I couldn’t have and double checked it with me. I ended up ordering the house salad with no cheese or croutons, but added salmon to it (I am currently dairy free too), which was really good. I didn’t even need to put dressing in it.

I got the triple decker donut cheeseburger after being assured from our server that it was GLUTEN FREE! I’ll tell you I’ve never destroyed a bathroom like I did that TGIF’s- sorry in advance. I’ve never had such an instant reaction to gluten like that where it began dripping down my leg. If you are struggling with constipation this is better than miralax.

Got the sirloin with broccoli and mashed potatoes twice and felt fine afterwards. I know the other reviews are relatively unfavorable but they seem to be better about GF now.

After talking to staff we decided to eat here. Waiter was very accommodating and understood our need when we told him my daughter had celiac. She ate only the sirloin steak and mashed potatoes. No problems with it at all.

My husband and I dined here this evening, and I ensured they had a separate GF menu, as well as noted GF items on the main menu. I ordered my usual salmon that comes with broccoli and jasmine rice. I noted to the waitress that I had a gluten allergy, and she said it wasn’t a problem at all. My food came out tasting fresh, and I felt great after dining. No issues here.

The waitress was really mean, I called ahead and asked for a gluten free burger. I needed this for my inbetween 30 min lunch. I opened the sandwich up and on the inside was a bunch of fried onions. I called and wanted to make sure the burger was gf, I got a lot of attitude and ended up scrapping it off and eating. Worth a full stomach ache rather then none. Called and got a refund but when I went to use my refund there was a big ordeal and still got a stomach ache. Upsetting cause they had really good food

Couldn’t have been more exited when I found out they had BOTH gluten free buns AND a potato-only deep frier. Actually got to order a burger and fries, like a normal person, and never got sick. This location did warn to ask about potato-only deep frier during peak tourist season (as when they’re super busy, accidents do happen) but pretty safe especially in the off-season. I’ve also ordered burger with GF bun and fries thru Uber eats and have never had issues.

They have a very limited gf menu. Brought the wrong entree full pasta to me and didn’t apologize. Just took it back and I waited another half hour for the correct dinner. Our last experience at TGI Friday’s in Monroeville was so horrible we don’t plan to ever go back. From being overlooked when needing to be seated to unacceptable wait time once seated to even order to a clueless waitress and long delay in replacing my meal. The atmosphere is one of a noisy cafeteria. A most unpleasant aura.

I was wary of eating here, especially at a busy dinner time, but the waitress reassured me that she would make sure the kitchen met my needs. I requested they clean the cook space and use new utensils and gloves. No reaction! I had the American burger “greens style” and a side of broccoli.

I came during rush hour and ordered my meal to-go from the bar. Most of the staff were more interested in each other than customer service. I ordered the burger with bacon, cheese, and egg. They did not seem understaffed but unprofessional. The burger came out in shambles and they did not include utensils for the mashed potatoes.

There on the go shop outside of the restaurant had a few different salad choices that clearly labeled the ingredients. It made it really easy to find something health to eat quickly during a short layover. The salads are quite large, and you get a few choices of dressing.

The waitress immediately asked I was “gluten friendly or celiac.” She then got the manager to ensure I could have something safe. She helped explain to him what I needed. He went and made my breakfast and carried it out. It might not be the most nutritionally balances but fruit and bacon work for me!

Worst experience ever!! When I arrived I got offered the gluten free menu, sadly on the menu it said only allergen sensitivities. I ordered a gluten free burger and when it came it did not look gluten free, so my sister tried it first saying it tasted gluten free. So I ate it then I realized it was not gluten free and am now I am sick!! So thanks TGI Friday’s for poisoning me!

Despite telling them I was allergic to gluten and needed a salad without the croutons and breadstick in the menu description, I was served a Caesar that was quite literally topped with spoonfuls of breadcrumbs. On top of that, my “filet mignon” was fatty and tough.

Ordered carry out. Plain hamburger on GF bun, loaded mashed potatoes, and side salad w/o croutons or breadstick. Kitchen was very slow but they got my order right, had their GF menu online (Including sides and salad dressings), and I had no problems after eating.

Spent the second night of my honeymoon in the bathroom thanks to TGIs! Specified gluten free on arrival and was shown the gluten free menu, then despite several conversations with the waitress regarding the best gluten free meal choices I was still sadly glutened. Needless to say I won’t be returning to any branch (this is the second branch this has happened to me in) and would strongly advise anyone visiting ask to speak to the manager before placing an order.

Was so excited to actually eat a meal at an airport and not just survive on snacks! Had the veggie burger (this is usually hard to find, since most are held together with some sort of gluten binder) on a gluten free bun! Lettuce. Tomato, red onion and pickle! It was bigger than my husband's beef burger and so delicious! Side of broccoli since the fries were not in a dedicated fryer. I made sure to explain prep to waitress, she was awesome! They had to have been careful because I didn't have any reaction what so ever. I do IF and usually fast 19 hours before I open my eating window so if I do happen to ingest gluten it hits me hard! I would definitely eat here again!

Contrary to previous reviews for this location—there is NOT a dedicated fryer for fries! I specifically asked the server and she said everything is fried in the same fryer! So, please disregard the reviews that state otherwise. There was a surprisingly good “gluten friendly” menu, however, with salads, steaks, chicken, and a few sides. I had the sizzling chicken & cheese with mashed potatoes and it was great.

Staff not educated about GF. No GF menus available, they couldn’t find any.

Ordered the bacon cheeseburger with Udi’s roll, mashed potatoes. Burger was great as were the potatoes.

Restaurant bathroom was filthy with feces on floor. General confusion with some people waiting an hour to get served because waitress forgot to put order in; and another party of four walked out after an issue.

There are two different versions of the gluten sensitive menu on their website, and both versions contain items that are no longer available in this location. The waitress offered to bring me the spinach and queso dip without chips. I understand she meant well and was trying to be accommodating. I looked up the ingredients for that item and confirmed it contains wheat. If I'd not been cautious, I could've eaten something that would've made me sick. It's obvious from the out-of-date information on the website and lack of education for the staff, that gluten allergies are not a priority. I won't be returning.

Waitress didn’t know what celiac was. Order the hamburger with gluten free bun and came out with regular hamburger. When I saw the receipt, she spelled out allergy- sellacs. Obviously they do not teach their staff about dietary restrictions. Also, my husband got a 6oz steak here and it came out looking like a dollar coin. So tiny, not even worth the money. They said that’s the normal size. Don’t recommend going here.
