Our food was delicious but the best part of our evening was our waitress, Elizabeth. She was very pleasant and offered all our options with a smile. She kept our coffee filled, which always means great service to me! Thanks Elizabeth for the great service!

Great meals at reasonable prices. Excellent waitress. The parking lot was almost full at 6pm on a Tuesday night. Had just flown into CVG airport and hotel desk clerk recommended this restaurant. It's a must if you are in town. Daily specials also.

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.
