Summary of Gluten Free Menu Options at Yard House

Pro tips and a quick summary of everything gluten free at Yard House

  1. When you order at the restaurant or on the app for delivery/pickup, tell them you have an allergy or Celiac Disease so they take precautions with your food.
  2. You can get a lot of burgers, sandwiches, and steak options gluten free, along with plenty of sides and drinks. In my opinion, they have a pretty big and safe gf menu at yard House.
  3. They also offer various alcoholic beverages with gluten free alcohol options, so ask your server!
  4. Yard House has over 100 ratings on Find Me Gluten Free with an average of 3.5 stars. Many reviews mention a great experience with the GS options. Some of the low reviews were related to cross contamination and safety precautions, so please be cautious. Not all locations have the same training.
  5. Personal experiences here are great. I go to the Yard House locations around Boston and I have had various items including the GS Kale & Romaine Caesar with grilled chicken which was amazing. I also love getting the half yard of cider or seltzer. 😉 The staff is well trained and always acknowledges the allergy with a manager and/or gluten free flag or toothpick in the food.
