Do you have a gluten-free menu? My husband has some pretty strict dietary guidelines--no sugar, no dairy, no gluten, no corn (although, he will eat small amounts of corn products such as corn starch in gluten free bread).

I am also gluten-free and though they do not have a dedicated gluten-free menu, the wait staff is educated about which of their dishes are 'safe' to eat (without gluten). We did not have any issues.
