Sweet Times at Sweetwater Tavern

We took my grandson here for lunch. Although it isn't quite as
"gluten-friendly" as their company's sister restaurant, Coastal
Flats, there were still plenty of options for gluten-free diners.
They do have what they term a "Low Gluten Menu" --
something that probably covers them from a liability
standpoint. The server seemed knowledgeable about the GF
menu were were given by the hostess, and it included 6 salads
(with only minimal adaptations like "no croutons"), burgers
(but no bun), steak, pork chops, chicken, fish, and even baby
back ribs! Everything is absolutely delicious here, and while I
ordered something that was not gluten-free, there seem to be
plenty of G-F options (mentioned above) that would still be
very good. My grandson opted for the burger, which was served
with redskin mashed potatoes. He is a big fan of french fries(!)
and was disappointed when we learned they were not gluten-
free here like they are at their sister restaurant Coastal Flats
(b/c they don't use a dedicated fryer). But he quickly fell in love
with the mashed potatoes and proclaimed, "I like these better
than french fries!" They also served him a big bowl of baby
carrots and applesauce. Of course, none of this compared to
the warm gluten-free chocolate waffle with vanilla ice cream
we shared for dessert...without a doubt one of the best
desserts I've ever had!!
