    I am on vacation in Wildwood and have Celiac Disease, so decided to take my family to this place as the reviews were great. The waitress informed us that they make their regular pizzas in the same kitchen and the flour flies everywhere, she's witnessed it, so she doesn't necessary trust gluten free items, so we tried to get basic items, such as steak and salad. The food really wasn't that great and I definitely would not come back as a Celiac as they don't have separate preparation areas and there was obvious cross contamination and the staff was not very knowledgable of allergies.

    I have been coming to South Jersey for vacation the past 40 years and I can't believe I just discovered this restaurant a few years ago when I was looking for a gluten-free restaurant. I would highly recommend the Lil's pasta with gluten free bread. Another great gluten free option is the pizza. They are both AWESOME!! Service is exceptional as well!

    I had crab cakes and they were GF and Awesome. Our server said they had a bartender about 8 years ago that was celiac. Since then, they have become very aware of the needs of celiacs. They even have 3 desserts to offer GF, ice cream sandwich, brownie sundae and chocolate cake! Wish I had saved room!

    As a local this is by far my favorite GF place to eat. I am eating my way through their entire GF Menu. Everything has been Delish. The GF CRAB CAKES are awesome, the pizzas are wonderful, as are the Tweason beer and Stella Cidre.

    GF crab cake sandwich was delicious! They also checked to make sure crab cake was dairy free as well for me. Extensive menu, knowledgable staff but be warned that the grill is not GF and your food may be prepared on common areas. That's why I chose crab cake over other grilled options. Still felt comfortable enough that I'd return and try other items.

    I would give it 10 stars! We went twice while on vacation in cape may! There was a full 2 sided GF menu! Everything we tried was wonderful, and no issues with illness after. My husband and I tried the pizza, pasta, crab cake, salads, GF bread and flourless chocolate cake. Everything was great (and I think our expectations are fairly high). Our first server was fantastic and so helpful with the GF menu. The 2nd server was less knowledgeable and helpful, but we were old pros by then! Highly recommend this restaurant and cape may with many GF restaurant options!

    This has been by far my best experience eating out since going GF. From the overwhelming menu selection to the wait staff knowledge. Not to mention the existence of a GF ICE CREAM SANDWICH!!!!! My pizza was a dream. I can not wait to come back for more.

    The GF flatbread pizza was EXCELLENT but you have to specifically ask for the GF crust. It isn't listed very clearly on the menu. Never actually eaten in the restaurant but their pizza to go is something I always look forward to when visiting Cape May! Highly suggest the four cheese pizza and the veggie pizza :)

    The pizza crust was excellent. Thin crust pizza. I had the lobster and shrimp pizza and our table shared the baby back ribs appetizer. Also very tasty, but could have used more sauce. The staff was very helpful and the dedicated gf menu really helped.

    Great staff. I asked the manager if anyone in the family was gluten free and she said no we just received so many requests we decided to ask our suppliers for gluten free products. then since none of us are gluten free we just ate them and if we like them we add them to our menu. I had the crab cakes a hamburger bun and the pizza over 2 days and everything was fantastic highly highly recommend this place

    My daughter is hard to please, especially since going GF. She raved about the GF macaroni and cheese, and wants to go back already. The GF pizza, GF Chicken BLT and GF Pulled Pork Sandwich were all amazing..and try the GF brownie, it's pretty good also :)

    Kid friendly with a large gluten free selection. I had the beet and goat cheese salad with a Cuban pork sandwich. The salad was large and fresh. The pork sandwich was delicious. The gluten free beer, twesons by dogfish, is my new favorite!
