    Great GF options. Very helpful and nice server. Our celiac loved him! Delicious meal: shrimp, bacon, lettuce and tomato club sandwich for the celiac was AMAZING!

    This may be celiac friendly for an adult but not a just turned 3 year old that lives on french fries when we go out.

    Extensive gluten-free menu. Fabulous food! Great ambiance. Terrific view! So many GF seafood options to choose from. I'm coming back tomorrow night 😊

    Celiac friendly. Large gluten free menu. Service was a bit slow, but the food was worth the wait.

    Gluten free menu, which includes about 3/4 of the menu. I had delicious fish tacos and my husband had ahi tuna. We even had a dessert trio! We will definitely come back if we are in this area again.

    Totally impressed. Huge gluten free menu and the kids loved everything. Too bad there is only one location. Will return for sure as a destination restaurant. Well done!

    Had a great gluten free menu, staff was really understanding and helpful to keep me safe. They even mentioned they have a separate fryer for fries but because of how sever I am they recommended not since their two fryers sit next to each other and can not guarantee that it is gluten free 100%. Such a great feeling to go somewhere and know that I can be taken seriously and not as "trend diet" thank you to Johnny's for caring! :) for sure will be a regular of this place.

    Very knowledgable staff, plenty of gluten free options, sensitive to allergic issues, kids menu also flexible to become gluten free, chicken was a bit spicy for the kids but was fixed for us. Side orders, fries and deserts also gluten free. Great experience.

    Great GF menu (including almost every dessert). One owner is a celiac so they totally get what's needed safety wise, Great fresh fish - I think you can even get a burger on a GF bun. I wish the soups were GF but there are so many other food options I feel guilty complaining.
