    Several gluten free options. My kids enjoyed the boiled crab although there is not a dedicated fryer for the fries. The shrimp and grits was excellent! Overall, a great way to experience gf New Orleans style food.

    Shrimp and grits were awesome. We are debating going back for a second time during this trip.

    Lots of gluten free options clearly marked. It can feel a little touristy, but it's the perfect place to get some classic New Orleans food that you can count on being gluten free. Gluten free options include shrimp and grits, red beans and rice, chargrilled oysters, and Cajun steamed seafood buckets. I've never had a bad meal here.

    Menu had GF options clearly labeled. The Shrimp and grits were out of this world, and the creole boils were tasty as well. Definitely recommended!

    The menu here is a little limited, but its not too bad if you like seafood. The only appetizer is a shrimp cocktail, and there are no gf deserts. The entrees include red beans and rice, oysters (grilled or raw), and some cajun steamed seafood platters. I ate here twice, and had a cajun steamed seafood platter both times. The staff isn't very knowledgable about gluten free, so just stick the the designated gf options on the menu. The platters come with TONS of food. I had the snow crab the first night, which came with 4 crab halves, boiled potatoes, a mini corn cob, and a piece of spicy andouille sausage. The second night I had the crab/gulf shrimp combo, which still had 3 crab halves plus 12 jumbo gulf shrimp and all the same sides. The restaurant is out on the riverfront, and both times I visited there was a live band outdoors. Good seafood for reasonable prices and a fun atmosphere!

    While there are only a limited number of GF items on the menu, the ones that are there are good. Red beans and rice, shrimp and grits, shrimp cocktail, to name a few. Prices are reasonable also. I had the shrimp and grits which is something I frequently get at restaurants back home, but not with this much flavor!!! My waiter was very familiar with the menu and what was GF.

    Although the wait staff was nice and willing to learn, she was clueless about gluten. They have gluten free options on main menu, but nothing listed for children. We had to piece together a meal from adult choices. The options were limited- crab, shrimp, lobster, beans and rice, grits. Great options for me and some kids I suppose.. My 6 year old left hungry.

    I was in NOLA for a conference and staying at the Hilton which was a very short walk away. Ate here twice and it was fantastic. Did take out one night and dined in the next. Wait staff was very friendly and remembered us when we returned for our dine in meal. G-free items are clearly labeled on the menu and very yummy. Very nice portions as well. I had the steamed snow crab: about 8 legs(average size), sausage link, corn and some potatoes. Nicely seasoned and no gluten reactions what-so-ever when I was done. It looked like they may have had multiple cooking areas, so it's possible anything fried or gluteny may have been cooked away from the stuff I bought. Great place for a safe meal!

    The menu has gluten free options marked. Our server was aware of and knowledgable about gluten. I had the shrimp and grits! I'd highly recommend this dish, it was delicious! Great southern dish! Thanks Crazy Lobster, we'd come back again!
