Pan seared trout cooked on flat top grill instead of more safely in a pan as stated in menu description. Spoke to several staff members alerted them to the fact I am highly gluten intolerant and wanted help making great choices, I received inconsistent responses to my questions about ingredients & preparation.

Poppers were good and appeared clean, salad fresh and tasty. I didn’t eat my main dish of pan roasted sea trout as it was obviously dredged in flour & upon questioning it was told they used gluten free flour & cooked it on the flat top rather than more safely in a pan as the description states. However, my partner said it wasn’t very tasty and a bit old. Id stick to the salads. Although many items are blue-corn crusted everything goes in the same fryer.

Very flexible... waitress was extremely helpful and the can make most items gluten free. Even the onion rings were corn fried and highlighted as gluten free. No bad reactions. Pan seared trout was excellent as are cocktails.

Had the trout with salsa. Spoke to the chef (Ricky) beforehand. He understood cross contamination. I had to explain that if his fried items were in a shared oil, I couldn’t risk it. So no fried items. I also tested my food and it came out GF. Overall very satisfied.

I have eaten here several times. The wait staff was very knowledgeable. The Corn fried chicken is excellent! The Staff & kitchen was kind about substitutions and made me feel like I was no trouble. Gluten-Intolerant.

Sad to say the experience was negative. Fish came out with dusting that was not gf after extensive questions etc. i ordered pan roasted sea trout. I did catch it from the way it looked and they recooked. Advised not to order fried. Others fish was over cooked Very disappointing.

Had blue corn encrusted fried chicken, green beans and mashed potoroos, gf onion rings and bacon wrapped shrimp jalapeño poppers. It was all delish, hopefully no reaction. I'll let you know.

Just had an excellent lunch. Started with GF onion rings, followed by bluecorn encrusted chicken, followed by GF brownie with ice cream, sliced almonds and chocolate sauce. Staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend this place. The atmosphere is also relaxed and enjoyable.

You have to ask the servers who have to check with the chef...BUT...the corn fried chicken was worth it!!!! It's too bad they don't mark it on their menu!

A few GF items on menu. Staff will make suggestions on additional items. Very tasty. Good cocktails. When I visited with staff they told me they did not have a dedicated fryer, so I elected to avoid their fried food.
