    GFree crab cakes are hard to find - and these are excellent. A really nice GF menu with wings, seafood, and GF bread. Nice full bar and very helpful wait staff. You will wonder why more restaurants can't handle gluten free cooking like this.

    a bit pricey, but so worth it to enjoy great food without the worry of gluten contamination. When asked, they told me that they prepare the food in a different part of the kitchen to avoid cross contamination.

    Food is excellent! The staff was very careful with my order, even bringing it to the table separately from the non-GF food. Nice variety of choices and the flourless chocolate cake was so delicious! I recommend this restaurant and especially the Caribbean Chicken!!

    Have never felt so comfortable eating out. Educated wait staff, separate kitchen for gluten free - no cross contamination and seperate menus. Had the best, most flavorful meal ever. They do gluten-free all the way. I would give them 10 stars !

    So happy to find a local restaurant that is Celiac friendly. The kitchen has a dedicated space, separate utensils, and dedicated fryer. They have a whole page of menu choices, appetizers, GF (good!) bread to go with the meal and even have a GF dessert. The food was great! I had the loaded fries and Pad Thai. The hostess and waitress are so welcoming and friendly - we love it here and will be back every time we're in town.

    September 21, 2015 The gluten free menu is absolutely awesome. We were there for dinner, and I ordered the pad thai and caesar salad. Both were excellent. I was also served warm gluten-free bread. The service was excellent, too. Thanks for a wonderful gluten-free meal!

    A whole page of the menu is gluten free. We ate so much and so well! The amount of food was enormous! Great service. Great food. Good pricing. The staff is really friendly too. Gluten free plus good service is a win win and hard to find these days! Definitely a high recommendation!

    I'm giving this just a 3/5 because about half of my family (gluten eating) were not happy with the quality of their food. The steamed shrimp was not edible. My son with Celiac disease, however, really enjoyed his safe meal. We both got the crab cakes & they were really good. He did not get sick. I

    They have many excellent gluten-free selections here! They even have a gluten-free kids meal section on the menu. I had the gf crab cakes, which were delicious. My son had the gf blackened chicken tacos, which he loved, and we all enjoyed the gf loaded fries. Our service was also excellent. This was definitely our best meal at the beach yet!

    The food was decent but the service was terrible. My fish tacos from last year there were far better than this year.

    For an appetizer my family got the gluten free loaded fries. They have a dedicated fryer, so I could finally have fries! For my meal, my mom and I had fish tacos and blackened tuna bites. Both were very good and I was NOT sick the next morning.

    I got the Pad Thai which was very spicy but good. The Pad Thai originally came with a big piece of bread which was NOT gluten free. Thankfully, I've learned to triple check my order before I eat anything. The waitress apologized and had them remake my order. All in all it was pretty good, I'm just glad I didn't eat the original order.

    Super accommodating. Menu denotes gf options and they have a dedicated frier for gf fries. I got the captains platter baked with a crab cake (yes!), shrimp, scallops and mahi-mahi. The server was very friendly and knowledgeable about what was safe and their prep processes.

    I really enjoyed eating at this restaurant. They had a variety of food (a separate frier for fries). I was told that the non-GF food was also good from my family, so everyone was happy :)! I had the chicken sandwich with peppers, mushrooms, cheese, with a GF bun and it was great. Will definitely dine there at least one more time before I leave.

    SO good! They had GF bread and I got GF crabcakes that were fabulous with a fruit salsa. Definitely one of my fave places in the beach now. Very laid back beach music and nice ambiance. Not crowded and no wait was a plus!

    The chef came and sat at our table to talk through allergy friendly options as soon as I alerted the waitress to my concerns. Not only was she friendly, but incredibly reassuring about safety from cross contamination of gluten, dairy and soy. Had a delicious and anxiety-free meal.

    Super friendly and knowledgable about gluten free! Several options including appetizers. The burger was very good and brought out separately. They have a dedicated area and frier for gluten free and knew the risks of cross contamination. Would definitely go back!

    Unbelievable menu !! I have never found a restaurant that catered so wonderfully to Gluten-free customers. I had the best dinner Tues night and went back, Wednesday, and Thursday for lunch. They have seperate gluten free menus for lunch and dinner. We come back in June and it will be "our spot" for the week... can't wait to sit on their outdoor deck !!!!

    Number 1 restaurant on the Outer Banks for gluten-free and dietary needs! Seperate gluten-free menus, separate kitchen area for preparation, no cross-contanimation. So impressed with this restaurant and the care they put into making sure everything is safe. They have gluten- free breads, desserts, wraps, .... amazing !

    We went for lunch. the Tuna was dry and overcooked. waitress was slow, and I got the impression she didn't really know sources of gluten. I didn't get sick afterwards, so maybe it was okay. I doubt we'll go back, though.

    South Beach Grill is a great stop for Gluten-Free families! There is a designated fryer and they are very careful about cross-contamination. The owner will actually come out to talk to you if you are concerned about the items you are looking at and can work with other allergies as well!
