Fun atmosphere and knowledgeable servers! They do not have a separate fryer but their gf buns are actually yummy and don't fall apart. I love the Sk8r Boi burger.

Excellent burger with gluten-free rolls available. Very knowledgeable server which made me very comfortable eating here. Only drawback was that they listed fries on the "gluten friendly" menu but they do not have a dedicated fryer which disappointed my son.

The server was knowledgeable and the menu specifically listed which items were / were not gluten free. I had the Plain Jane burger and selected a grilled chicken breast on gluten free bun (which was delicious), added on toppings of avocado, grilled onions and selected one of the BBQ sauces that was gluten free. I also ordered a side salad (as all fried items come from the same non dedicated fryer, according to the printed menu I saw on 7/21/18) but unfortunately the salad I was given initially had croutons on top. They did apologize and bring me a freshly made salad but it wasn't anything special. The reason to go here is for the burger options and milk shakes. I had also them double check the ice cream and ordered a chocolate milk shake and was very pleased with the taste.

I ate here a year ago and was excited by their gluten free menu. I also tried a gluten free beer, Daura Damm, that was recommended to me by the server. I was very clear I was celiac and that cross contamination mattered to me. Unfortunately, I got sick from this and threw everything up after finishing my meal. I commented to the server - as I noticed the bottle of Daura Damm said "low gluten" and not gluten free (too late I already drank some) They said it's a gluten friendly menu and not necessarily completely gluten free. I explained to them how dangerous it was to do this and they need to make sure their gluten free offerings were actually gluten free as people can get very sick. I had to push for them to offer me a refund - they only took the beer off my bill but not the burger even though I got sick because of their incompetence. From other reviews it looks like maybe they improved. However, be wary when you go here. The burger I had was also sub par in flavour/quality. Would never go back.

Wife and I go here once a month for amazing burgers. Bold slaw is the side of choice unless you're into weeds. Bun can be a bit fall-apart but it's worth it! Never gotten sick.

Gluten free/friendly section clearly labeled on the menu. Staff was knowledgeable and indicated gluten free on my order. Gluten free bun was delicious! Many options of toppings and sides.

We had a great meal here. The food is delicious and there are many options for a celiac friendly meal. I phoned ahead about the fries and asked when I got there and both times I was told they use a designated fryer. I see some of the reviews say the opposite - so I guess it's worth looking in to!

Had dinner there tonight with my celiac daughter. Waitress and the server who brought out our food were confident and knowledgeable in celiac and gluten intolerances. Dedicated fryer for fries...my daughter was thrilled. The service was wonderful and food was delicious! I highly recommend them. Even offered gluten free gravy for the fries. Hours later and my daughter is sleeping peaceful.

Ate here recently...and it was awesome. Pretty much everything regarding the burgers can be made (or already is) gluten free. The gf buns were the best I have ever tasted. The fries are cooked in a separate fryer. Huge portions a d bottomless fries....bring your appetite!

As a celiac sufferer I really enjoy it here. I've never gotten sick after eating here. The burgers are great and there are lots of options. The servers are all knowledge about gluten free options which is nice. The only downside is that I can't have fries because they don't have a dedicated fryer

The gluten free bun was the best bun I have ever had. Make sure you state you are gluten intolerant. My server Rachel was very knowledgeable in what has or doesn't have gluten. Most of the items are gluten free. I had a delicious burger and it was pain free! Go here!!

Staff was friendly and food was very good. The only draw back is that their beef burgers are not from grass fed cows. I had the turkey burger and fries with no celiac symptom issues.

Amazing service and food. The fries are not gluten free but the burgers are amazing and a very tasty bun. Update: a month ago they had a dedicated fryer and it was great but tonight the waiter informed us that they now use that fryer for all items so it is no longer gf. Very disappointing. It is still in the menu that fries are gf but they are not

This place makes being gf easy! Staff was extremely knowledgeable. I have never been to any restaurant where they were so allergy friendly! Even kids burgers can be gf! I might just travel back here JUST to eat here again! Kitchen does have a separate dedicated fryer! I highly recommended! Five stars is not enough!

So not only found a place that has GF burger buns from a local baker up here but poutine made from a vegan rue(no gluten) and goat cheese instead of the normal cheese curds since I'm also cows milk dairy free. Did I mention elk burger :). And a local cider. For the GF traveler this place has a dedicated fryer, most toppings are GF, a bun that is light and fluffy, and a good selection of sides. The quirkiness is in the decor and serving items. Measuring cups for drink containers, light bulb salt and pepper shakers. Staff was a blast and extremely knowledgeable. A great find in my opinion.

Fries are listed on the Gluten Friendly menu, but they don't use a dedicated fryer, so not really an option for anyone who needs to be GF.

Gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu (or rather the few non-gluten friendly items are listed). Good GF buns on the burgers!

We stopped there during our stay at the falls. The waitress was knowledgeable with GF options, and they had a dedicated fryer. My concern was the lack of knowledge around food products that have diary in them. luckily, their menu online showed me. The manager didn't come out to make sure our order was made properly as others had said. The service was not the best, but the food came out tasting good. Warning to other bf mom's out there; they use cured bacon and don't ask how you want your burgers done.
