Frequently Asked Questions


We have plenty of amazing lacto-ovo vegetarian dishes to choose from! That said, our two most popular vegetarian options will probably always be wine and beer. Any item with vegetarian icon beside is or can be modified to be a vegetarian item. If you’re cruising our website, you can filter our menu by selecting the Vegetarian dietary preference to see all your options or just ask your server!

While we are not a gluten-free environment and products containing gluten are prepared in our kitchens, we do offer menu items that can be modified to accommodate a gluten sensitivity. On our menu, look for items with the gluten friendly icon to see which items are Gluten Friendly or can become Gluten Friendly with some modifications. If you’re checking out our website, you can filter the menu by this dietary preference to see all your options. Or just ask your server the next time you’re at OJ’s!
