    SO many Gluten Free options!!!!! Including seafood chowder (it is amazing & filled with haddock, clams, lobster, shrimp and scallops!!!) all fried food (clams, chicken, haddock, scallops etc.), french fries, sweet potato fries, onion straws, crab cakes, a GF roll option for sandwiches/burgers/lobster rolls and GF desserts along with many other choices that are in itself Gluten Free .... If you're looking for a place to go for lunch or dinner that has many options check out The Riverhouse, you won't be disappointed!!! 😀

    Stopped by here because of the reviews. Turns out that 2 1/2 wks ago they completely switched the fryer over to gluten free. That means that almost the entire menu is available as gluten free. French fries. Fried seafood. Sweet potatoes fries, etc, etc. Definitely worth a trip.

    We were disappointed that despite having a dedicated GF fryer, they don't make gf French fries. My son with celiac observed wait staff using their hands to scrape dirty plates of gluten-y food and then serve our GF food. Not comforting at all. I suspect a bit of retraining of staff is needed.

    Great location, great choices for food and drink. Best gluten free chowder I have had. Chicken fingers were crisp, tasty and filling! Staff well versed on gluten free options. Nice to have a great meal at a popular restaurant with no hoop jumping and plenty of variety!

    These folks were among the first to dedicate a fryer for fried clams and have a GF chowder. For that I will be forever grateful. Unfortunately the quality is inconsistent. It is very noisy. It is not my first choice anymore.

    good gluten-free beer menu; limited gf food menu; dedicated Gf fryer plus Gf breading for seafood. Safely order deep-fried anything!

    Outstanding food. The seafood chowder deserves 5 stars all by itself. It is so good. The fried scallop/shrimp plate was very very good. All that was missing was the French fries or onion rings. They substituted rice for the fries/rings because they were not fried in dedicated fryer. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable. I would definitely stop here again.

    Too bad that I do not like beer, they had about 4 different Gluten Free Beer choices. Had the batter fried Maine Baby Shrimp. Was worth the extra time to wait for preparation. If they extend the gluten free options, they will earn 5 stars. Was a very good experience, will probably come back.

    Great gf seafood batter! The first time the kids has gf battered fish and chicken nuggets. A little pricy but well worth it.
