We were staying nearby and walked over for lunch. The food and service were great. We had burgers and sandwiches. The food is pretty typical diner food and there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Yes there are some gluten free breads and buns available, upon request. Also understand some recipes can be made with gluten-free ingredients if requested, but they are not posted that way.
