Menu has good choices, food was good, service was great, and they do a great job accommodating large groups. I suggest parking in the back where there is plenty of room. Also, have a slice of pie.

This was an amazing restaurant. Our server, Sam, out did herself. Our group had 19 people and she took extra care of us. Also, the manager, Matt, met us at the door and welcomed us. The food was also exceptional.

I cannot say whether this restaurant has a "Gluten Free" portion on their menu. I recommend that you contact them directly and ask them that question.
