NUTRITION & DIETARY RESTRICTIONS
Dining Services strives to offer inclusive menu options and accommodate all dietary restrictions. If guests have questions regarding allergens in an item, gluten-free options, or other dietary restrictions, ask a manager. When guests have questions regarding allergens in a product or other special dietary requirements, have a manager assist in answering their questions so that Dining Services provides accurate information. If guests have concerns regarding finding menu items to meet their special dietary needs, refer them to the Dietitian.
