O’Charley’s Gluten-Free Menu 2019

O’Charley’s restaurant has a good variety of gluten-free dishes in pretty much every category. There is a lot to choose from here which is great. They do state that there is a possibility of cross contamination, due to a shared preparation environment in their kitchens, so it may not be the best place if you are allergic to gluten. We definitely recommend letting your server know if you have any specific dietary needs. They provide a clear list on their website of all of their dishes and what allergens are present.

O’Charley’s History

O’Charley’s is an American casual restaurant chain that specializes in aged prime rib, homemade rolls, pasta, seafood, chicken and salads. The company has more than 200 locations found in 17 states across the South and Midwest, including 4 separate franchised restaurants in Michigan, Ohio and 3 other joint venture locations in Louisiana.

This eatery is the brainchild of Charley Watkins. He purchased a single building in 1971 and steadily developed it into a successful regional restaurant chain. His first restaurant was located  just a block away from Vanderbilt University. After running the company from 1971 to 1984, he finally sold it to Wachtel K. who had previously spent 23 years working for Shoney’s before rising to the position of President and CEO of the restaurant chain.

Two separate phases define O’Charley’s first 30 years of existence. One was a duration of little change whereas the other phase was a period marked by rapid change and continuous growth which transformed a small single location into a massive chain generating nearly $200 million annually in sales. The first phase was overseen by founder Charlie Watkins, who ran his single restaurant for about 15 years. Then came Wachtel who breathed new life into the business, leading to steady expansion and more profitability.

Around the turn of the century, O’Charley’s Inc. was purchased by Fidelity National Financial and became fully integrated as a subsidiary of American Blue Ribbon Holdings Limited. In 2002, they opened 24 new locations, bringing their overall number to more than 180 restaurants. The company was also ranked by Forbes Magazine among the “200 Best Firms in the U.S.” for the 3rd consecutive year which was a true testament to its successful expansion plan during a time when the American economy was experiencing a massive downturn. Currently, with their overall sales and profits rising, the company is now focused on embracing its spot as a versatile operator in the food industry.

  1. While OCharlys may have gluten free option they do not properly train their staff. They also don’t actually have a gluten free menu. They have an allergen list. The allergen listed is “Wheat”… Not gluten. As anyone with Celiac knows, it is not just wheat we have to avoid. So their allergen listing is not adequate in listing gluten. Their salads could all be gluten free as well as wheat free if croutons were not put on them. But it’s obvious, they don’t understand this. There was a time they were very gluten free friendly, not anymore. I explained my dietary needs to my waitress and ordered the California Salad. Told her to make sure there were no croutons added and again stressed I get very sick from gluten/wheat. She left with my order and came back with rolls. I let her know that was wheat.. Bread, flour, gluten. They would make me very sick. She went on to push how good they are and ask me if I’m sure I don’t want the rolls. Lol!my salad came and it didn’t make me sick.. But I was the first person in this location for lunch. They had just opened the doors. After I finished my salad my waitress came back to offer a slice of pie. “It’s free on Wednesdays” and she said it was very good. I didn’t explain again my dietary restrictions, she wasn’t getting it. I told her to package me a slice of pecan pie to go. I delivered it to my son who is not Celiac. I will not be going back… As OCharlys has become very risky.

  2. The list has potato soup as gluten free. It’s not. Whatever they use to thicken the soup must have gluten because it made me extremely sick. Please remove from your list so no one else has to endure the same symptoms.
