We ate here this summer (Juns 2015), and loved it. The atmosphere was quiet (4PMish), the service was great and the food was wonderful. The GF Shepherds Pie was so filling, with perfect flavor. It was nice to find a place with what I call comfort food, in order to have a break from seafood, yet something different from all the big chains out there. Highly recommend! The desserts are the best. My husband got the Key Lime pie and said it was the best he's ever had, but it is not GF.
One of the best gluten free restaurants I have been to! As soon as we walked in the hostess asked if we needed gluten free menus. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable about the gluten free options and the service wad top notch! We will definitely be back! The GF chocolate cake and fish fry was fabulous!
Great variety of GF choices with a dedicated fryer! The GF shrimp and chips was delicious (battered shrimp and steak fries) and I had a very tasty chocolate cake (from a dedicated bakery) with ice cream for dessert. You can't go wrong here!
Fantastic gluten free menu. I had salmon with mango pineapple sauce - was delicious. Very knowledgeable staff.
Amazing gf fried shrimp, they didn't have shrimp in stock and so the owner went and bought some at the grocery store and then made it
Great service and huge portions. Lots of choices that you don't always see in other restaurants. Dedicated fryer was a plus for my teen daughter.
A must stop! Best meal ever and so knowledgable on gluten free. From appetizer to dessert you can eat here with confidence and gluten free people know what a relief that is! Do not miss eating at Beckham's.
Phenomenal English Style GF fish & chips (complete with mushy peas), breaded shrimp and chips, burger and desserts. The owner has Celiac disease and has created a 2 page GF menu! The batter on the fish was so tasty. The have a dedicated fryer for GF. Fabulous! I would go out of my way to return to this restaurant! Fabulous!
Great GF fish and chips with mushy peas! The owner came to the table! She too is a celiac! Designated fryer! She explained how she hated going to other places and hated reading blah blah ask to hold blah. So everything on her GF MENU is GLUTEN FREE WITH NO MINUS THIS OR THAT!! A must stop!! Hope you enjoy this place as much as we did! Oh and there is a totally GF bakery around the corner that she gets her buns from for her hamburgers!
Run by a British celiac this place does fabulous British pub grub that also happens to be gluten-free. The fish and chips was amazing. Highly highly recommended.
Amazing! Not only is all the staff vigilant about gluten free preparations, the food is incredible! The GF fish and chips melt in your mouth. My hubby eats rye GF version with no because it is so tasty. Expansive menu, all soups are always GF and full of flavor. After 23 years gluten free, never thought I could eat out and feel so comfortable. What a gem!
Based on previous reviews, we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! Some of the best gluten free food we have ever had at a restaurant. The waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and made some great menu suggestions. The owner was very friendly as well and made us feel special. We had the fish and chips and both of the desserts as well. Delicious!!!!
A great find on vacation when I've been struggling to find places trust to eat at with my gluten and dairy allergies. Due to the dairy allergy, I was more limited with the awesome GF menu but still had many options which was a luxury. They use a beer batter for the fish and chips so I was thrilled to be able to eat that and it was fantastic! Our waitress was helpful and made the experience even better with her service and attention to my needs. I even enjoyed a GF beer! Can't wait to come back here. It made me feel "normal" eating out which is a rarity.
Dedicated GF area and fryers! Had the gf beer-battered fish n chips, which was excellent. Have also tried their burgers and deserts. Pretty great and the staff is very knowledgable and accommodating.
AMAZING!! Beckhams has the most extensive gluten free menu (incl drink menu!) I've ever seen! You name it, they have it!! They have designated kitchen space and fryers! I was able to eat fish & chips!! Our waitress was VERY knowledgable and I was very comfortable knowing I wouldn't get sick from cross contamination. The owner is a Celiac herself, and she even visited our table during our visit to share her story! She's a beautiful person. I'm so very thankful I found this place during our vacation here!! Thank you BECKHAMS!!!
Waiter was very informed. Food was very bland, but I didn't get sick which was all I was worried about on vacation.
This restaurant is amazing! Run by someone with Celiac disease the kitchen has dedicated fryers & staff is well trained.
Fantastic! Offered us gluten free menus before we could even ask. Nachos were yummy.
Finally a true gluten-free menu from a restaurant that "gets it"! The food is great with texture and flavor! Plus I can't tell you how excited I was when I discovered their gluten-free cake for dessert!
Owner is gluten free so understands risks such as cross contamination, they have a gluten free menu, they have separate fryers for fried food, and were very knowledgeable. I have celiac so am pretty sensitive to gluten and had no issues. I ordered a burger on a gluten free bun.
The food is delicious, friendly atmosphere and very knowledgeable staff. Lots of choices on the dedicated GF menu My burger on a GF bun was delicious as were my GF French fries. Ordered dishes to go as well. Thank you thank you.
This place was amazing to say the least! We had the fish and chips which came highly recommended and was not a disappointment at all. We also had an amazing fresh soup of the day and a burger… Everything including dessert was fabulous! You will not be disappointed with this place!!! The first really good sign was that they asked if we would like a gluten-free menu or a regular menu- which was a first for us!
Great gf menu. i think very safe, the owner is cd (which honestly doesn't mean much to me since I feel a problem within 30 minutes and many of them don't feel anything) but we had a great meal with no trouble - had fried shrimp and a hamburger. We had a really nice server as well.
Fantastic food and wonderful people! They have a Gluten Free menu that you won't believe. Just had the best fish & chips I've ever had anywhere (even prior to developing Celiac Disease.) After speaking to Annie, one of the owners, I would say you can feel totally safe eating here. They take great care in preparing their GF food because Annie is one of us! I highly, highly recommend Beckham's on the Trail!
Extensive GF menu. It was a thrill to order a burger, fries, fish and chips, etc. Owner has CD, so everything is safe. Servers are extremely knowledgable. Dessert, especially, was over-the-moon delicious.
Beckham's on the Trail is one of the best restaurants offering a gluten free menu in South Sarasota! The excellent management, staff, and menu selection caters to not only regular diners, but also to those who have food intolerances, food allergies, or celiac disease. There are many items on the gluten free menu that I have not seen offered at other restaurants. For example, there is fish and chips, battered shrimp, stuffed pork loin, and chicken piccata. In addition, there are gluten free buns for all sandwiches. French fries and nachos are made in a dedicated fryer. Cross contamination is NOT an issue at Beckham's, as the kitchen has strict procedures in place for special orders which are overseen by Annie Malon, who has multiple food intolerances herself. My husband (regular diner) and I (celiac) ate several meals at Beckham's while on vacation at Siesta Key. We tried many different items from the menu and were never disappointed. The appetizers, salads, entrees, sandwiches, and desserts were delicious and reasonably priced. Beckham's on the Trail is the "go to" restaurant for locals and vacationers!!
Awesome GF menu! I felt like I was eating normal food, but it was GF! It was so nice. And tons of gluten items for the rest of my family. It was all delicious. I had the fish and chips and my son has a GF burger with a yummy bun and fries. He was over the moon to have GF fries! Great service too. Reasonable prices for tons of food. Great people too! Thank you!
Best GF meal I have ever had out. Craving good gluten free buns for my burgers and this place provided big time! They get their bread fresh from Island GF Bakery right down the street. Extensive GF menu. Even made my husband's ribs gluten free so I could try them. One of the owners has Celiac's so everything is prepared to spec. GF cocktail options too! I HIGHLY recommend this place for both GF and non-GF diners.
