Last night we went to Duke's Chowder House in Tacoma for dinner. When I asked for the gluten free menu the waitress asked me if it was an allergy, personal preference, or celiac disease. When I told her celiac, she alerted the kitchen staff and manager, and the manager came to our table to explain their safe handling procedures (new gloves, separate utensils and pans, etc) and answer questions. The waitress knew which drinks were GF, offered chips and salsa instead of bread, and even the server was aware of the GF order and answered my questions as the food was placed before me. The Alaskan salmon with goat cheese and blueberries was superb, and the award winning chowder is a must. Short of a dedicated GF facility, it seems this is as safe as they come for dining out gluten free.

Excellent food and great service!! Best burger I've had since being diagnosed with celiac. The bun was A.MAZ.ING, fried onions were perfection, and the patty was substantial, cooked perfectly, and juicy. Homemade chips were a great compliment to this excellent entree. I watched a few dishes come to other customers while I waited for my food to-go, and the presentation was beautiful! When I opened my to-go container a little later I was pleasantly surprised to find lovely presentation, even in a styrofoam box. So glad I found this gem!
