Lots of gluten free options. Food was really good. Restaurant is built in and around a tree! Really a unique local experience.

We loved it here. The food was fantastic. I had the yam quesadilla and my partner had the tree house club sandwich. Both were very tasty. It can get a little chilly in there but they had blankets for us to keep warm.
