A bit frenetic. Hard to negotiate wheelchairs and strollers. The food is fine, but a picnic in the picnic area is easier. We generally treat ourselves to 1906 which is really special.

I was very impressed with Longwood Garden's cafeteria. You can get soups, salad, sandwiches, pizza, vegetarian, entrees like Cornish hen and tasty desserts. Its a little pricey but better than most restaurant food. They have inside and outside seating and bathrooms.

The restaurant is very accommodating. To be sure about gluten-free options, call ahead. I'd be highly surprised if the chef didn't prepare something you can enjoy.
