    Eaten here several times with no reaction. Staff is very knowledgeable, and even had the kitchen check ingredients for me on certain sauces. Highly recommended!

    This place is amazing! They have an extensive GF menu and even GF fried seafood! The shrimp were excellent. I haven’t had fried shrimp out in years! And their GF brownie sundae is so good, it was gone before I could even get my phone out for the photo! The staff is super helpful and courteous, and very knowledgeable about GF and Celiac needs. And best of all, we could bring our dog with and eat on the porch! I could

    Beware the cross contamination. I had the gf fish sandwich on gf bun with gf french fries, and I was sick before I left the restaurant. I know they try hard to have gluten free options and are proud of their gf efforts, but as their menu says, they can't guarantee there won't be cross contamination. I assume that's what made me sick. Getting sick from gluten is a miserable experience anywhere, but at a place that promotes its gf items, I was really disappointed.

    I almost started crying when I got to this restaurant and saw how many gluten free options there were, and that they have a dedicated gluten free frier, so I could have French fries at a restaurant for the first time since my diagnosis! My non celiac boyfriend was excited about not having to choose between the food he really wanted to order and getting to kiss me after we ate without having to rush off and do his oral hygiene first. The food was good and I did not get sick after eating here. Next time I am in Virginia Beach, this will be my go to restaurant.

    Knowledgeable staff and lots of choices on the menu. Safe both times we came. Desert is huge. GF calamari is available dedicated fryer and all. It’s pricy for what you get, but it’s in the heart of the main tourist area of Virginia Beach.

    Extensive selection for the gluten free. Wait staff specifically asked if someone in party was celiac when ordering items gluten free. Happy splurge to be able to try some things that are frequently not available elsewhere gluten free.

    Amazing options! My daughter and I are both celiac and never eat out due to the fear of destroying vacations. This place has it ALL with 2/3 rd of the menu being GF. I have never felt so comfortable eating out. Wish we had this place in our hometown.

    Decided to order take out from this restaurant as their website says they have a dedicated gf space in their kitchen. I ordered a burger and gf grilled cheese for my daughter. The person who filled my order upon pick up was helpful and double checked everything for us. She even made sure the gf food was bagged separately. The food was tasty and I did not have a reaction.

    Fried calamari, fried butterfly shrimp, coleslaw and Delmonico steak were all gf and all delicious!!! Great gf dipping sauces as well. Casual pub/restaurant atmosphere. Best part was a gf brownie sundae with a warm brownie that is AMAZING! Non-gf family members all loved their meals as well. Would definitely come back!

    My whole family enjoyed a terrific meal here, including my 9 year old with celiac. She was happy with her choice of gf pasta and was thrilled to be able to share some French fries with all of us. No issues for her after eating here.

    Separate Fryer, good food, separate prep area, LOTS of options, knowledgable servers. DF & GF options seemed limited, main dishes and sides seemed pricey, but good environment right off the beach, and most importantly, being so sensitive to gluten cross contamination, I felt safe eating here & didn't get sick. I ordered sweet potato fries & they were good, fresh with seemingly no seasoning, which I prefer anyway. They had many options using GF batter and separate fryer, or pasta for more exciting dishes, but I was born to be mild. It was fun to eat out, I almost NEVER do, due to my sensitivity and limited diet. I've been made sick too many times in the past- this time wasn't like that :D

    Our whole family went for dinner, because they offer so many gluten free options. My son loved the potato skins and gluten free fried chicken. I loved being able to get fried flounder that was gluten free. We had excellent service. We will definitely be back when we are back in the area.

    Probably the best overall GF option in Virginia Beach. Celiac friendly. Separate fryer - wings, French fries, etc. GF buns. They know how to do GF. We have eaten there three times during our stay in Virginia Beach this week and will return again. Two GF ciders on tap. Cheers!

    Abbey Road is quite the experience. They say that their menu is 2/3 gluten free, and they follow through! On top of that it's an odd move away from the beach, which is 30 feet away, to a pub atmosphere and food that seems to come out of nowhere. If you enjoy the Beetles you should check it out. If you earn gluten free you should check it out. If you are hungry at the beach you should check it out. The staff are very knowledgeable about gluten and other dietary restrictions. Had first fried oysters here, gluten free of course, they were good but a bit soggy. The Sgt.Pepper burger was also good, with a gluten free bun; it was slightly greasier than needs be but it's the beach and you should be drinking so lighten up. I'd go again. tl;dr - good atmosphere, good gluten free options, knowledgeable staff, food pretty good, would go again.

    Unsatisfactory ! I was so excited to come here from N.Y. And the GF Buffalo Wings were severely undercooked ( bloody) and had to send them back, and the sweet potato fries were burnt. The service was less than adequate. Not anything like I remember. My Abbey Road burger was good and my spouse's fish tacos were good. Too bad the others issues ruined the experience.

    Safe, staff seems knowledgeable and cautious, good amount of variety (I got the club). Food wasnt worth the money, fries (all of ours) were cold. Close to $60 for 2 adults and 2 kids. Safe bet but we won't be back.

    Kid friendly and Celiac safe. My family loved this place and we ate here multiple times during our vacation. It is so nice to have so many gf options and a dedicated fryer at a restaurant. Both of my kids were very happen between the chicken fingers, fried shrimp, French fries, and fried calamari. They are all such rare treats for us we had to order it all.

    I have celiac disease. Abbey Road was suggested by a friend of mine who's daughter also has celiac. I'm VERY happy to state that not only did they have a BIG selection of GF items, but they also were knowledgeable about the risks of cross contamination. Add to it the gluten free statement in the menu it put me at ease. Here's the kicker. The food was really good. The service was really good as well. Thanks SO much for a worry-free meal and more importantly a worry-free time with my family! Well done!
