My family and I went here to celebrate my hubby's birthday. We had a blast, and the food was great too! Our entertainer for our time there was Lady GaGa, and this gal made our experience special. Well worth the trip and cost!

We dined there after asking the question. They do have a menu of gluten free items. Just ask the server.
