Pretzels were amazing. Fried chicken was good Mashed potato & gravy side was awful. Compared to what I make at home it tasted awful. Potatoes were thin no salt or taste & gravy was inedible.

Found this place on a recommendation from my hotel bartender and it didn't disappoint!! The food was delicious and the happy hour is in point. The bartenders were friendly and the restaurant itself is awesome. I can't recommend this place enough!!

I do not believe that Culinary Dropout has a glutten free menu, but Olive and Ivy which is about a 3 minute walk around the corner on the waterfront does.
