Due to COVID we did a order online and pickup order. The service was INCREDIBLY SLOW, almost to the point of wanting to cancel and just go to the grocery store and get something. However, when we finally received our food - it was fantastic. I ordered the GF pecan crusted chicken which was delightful and the best I’ve had since having to go GF. The wait issue and slow service according to a local who was waiting with me, is normal. But it was very good. Outside of Covid we’d absolutely go sit down again.

Outstanding service and the owner, Maria, stepped in when she heard me talking about my allergy to bell peppers. She was able to tell me what was safe. This was on top of the waiter's excellent knowledge of the gluten free items for my husband and mother. We felt very safe eating and had no reactions. I would definitely suggest this restaurant to anyone who is traveling and looking for an excellent meal. The catch of the day was especially tasty!

Oh my goodness, celiac heaven. Dedicated fryer, french fries, fish tacos, dessert! The jambalaya was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten in my life. I ordered the fish tacos, my husband ordered the Jambolaya and I ate most of his! They are very careful, they switch all utensils and cooking supplies when a celiac orders. My daughter, Mom and I, who all have celiac, did not have any reaction at all. Do not miss this restaurant when visiting the Outer Banks!

Menu is specific on gf items. The staff was very knowledgeable and asked immediately if I was celiac to make sure they were cautious in the kitchen. I ordered the fish sandwich and I had the most delicious gf bun I’ve ever had! The restaurant is beautiful, awesome views.

We just ate here again, summer 2019. This is our first stop after a long drive to the outer banks! Food and drinks are yummy and a great view! My celiac daughter and husband ate here without getting sick. We were a little nervous because gf plates came out on the same tray as the gluten plates. Next time, I’ll ask them to carry on separate trays. They also said there was a risk of cc in the fryer so we got tortilla chips and fruit.

They do have dedicated fryers. The gluten fryer, however is next to the gluten free fryer so there is risk for CC. I didn’t get sick here, but they did warn me that CC with gf chicken and gf chips was possible since the fryers were next to each other. They had desert. However I did not see any pasta on the menu.

They have a dedicated fryer! The buns were a solid 12/10 I have to say; I was shocked they were gluten free! I completely recommend this place, they have a lot of gluten free options! They even have gluten free donut holes which is amazing, yet I didn't get to try them so I can't judge how good they are. Definitely go here if you have a gluten allergy or Celiac. My favorite Gluten Free restaurant in OBX. Would return in a heartbeat.

There were 9 in our party and everyone was extremely pleased with their meal. The staff was friendly, the views were beautiful and the food was fresh and prepared on site. Three of us have Celiac disease and there were so many clearly marked GF options! To top it off, the GF donuts and chocolate torte were so good we ordered some to go.

I had their fish sandwich-- blackened mahi which was fresh off the boat this morning. It was delicious as was the bun it was on. I had the side potato salad which was very tasty and my husband and I shared the GF donut holes which came with a maple pomegranate syrup. We learned while speaking with the owner that the chef (her husband) makes each item to order. A large portion of their menu is natural GF. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Amazing! Delicious food, great service, nice ambiance and lovely view. My daughter with celiac ordered the southern hamburger and she loved it. Her gluten-free bun was really good and didn't crumble apart like some gluten free buns due. So many gluten free options to choose from. We also had the gluten free donuts which are served warm and are so good that the non gluten free members of our family gobbled them up. All of us really enjoyed our meals even my very picky 15 year old cleaned his plate.

The food was wonderful!!! Fine dining with out the pretense. The selections were great and the seafood was very fresh. We were here off season so it was a quiet night (which we loved). They are very accommodating with my gluten sensitivity and they know their stuff. I got the crab dip and it was delicious! My hubby who is not gf was able to get some crustinis and I enjoyed my corn tortillas chips. For dinner I got the peppered catch which was outstanding. My husband got the crab cakes and was blown away. If you enjoy excellent food, consider your self a foodie, and want great service and a beautiful evening this is a great pick!!

Oh and I almost forgot, the bathrooms have a changing table for the kiddos. So they are family friendly too!!! We will for sure be back!

what a refreshing experience! We picked this restaurant bc of the reviews and we're not disappointed. One of my children and I can not have gluten. He was so excited to have GF pasta! I had the most delicious brisket sandwich and the GF Bun was amazing! the owner came over to talk with us and she was so kind! it was the only meal on vacation that had no complaints and 5 clean plates. That is impressive and speaks volumes. The entire staff was very knowledgeable. We will go back every time we visit.

We stopped here today after the Aquarium and were not disappointed. This was day 6 of our trip and the best food we have had so far! We ordered the crab dip with corn chips for an appetizer and it was bland, but they took it off without us even asking which I wasn't expecting. I had the catch of the day (flounder) with green beans and mashed potatoes. My wife had the fish tacos with pan seared flounder. I had the house-made ginger ale and she had the root beer on draft. We both loved our meals!! We met the owner and she is GF and vegan. Her husband is the chef. I felt safe as a celiac eating here and absolutely recommend it to anyone.

I have 7 food allergies including gluten (CD), tomatoes, broccoli, peas, almonds, pork and avocados. I also have IBS so salads are out. The owner is GF and her children are on special diets. She came to my table and reviewed ingredients in the dishes. They make a gf fried chicken! It was pretty good too. I also had one of the best mojitos I havery ever had there. I wished I had found this restaurant earlier in our trip I definitely would have gone back.

Most excellent. Wait staff was fairly knowledgeable and was able to ask an owner when she didn't know the answer. Delicious chicken breast served on a GF bun that was very tasty. Best GF/DF meal I've had on the outer banks of NC.

My husband is gluten sensitive and dairy sensitive and we wanted to eat here after reading the raves. They give many options and he chose. The chicken sandwich. The GF bun was the best looking GF bun I've ever seen and he said it tasted good. I had the crab cake sliders and they were so good my eyes rolled into the back of my head. The staff was friendly and good.

Owners have a child with celiac and one of them is the chef. Dedicated gf fryer, superior knowledge of ingredients (all made from scratch).

Owner & chef husband have gf child and vegetarian child so understand food choices. Have separate cookware, even separate fryer for the gf food when preparing. Menu denotes gf, vegan and vegetarian choices. They will also work with other food allergies, such as dairy, when finding a meal choice. Uses organic, locally-sourced foods. Stop here when in Manteo, NC on Roanoke Island before you get to Nags Head, NC on the Outer Banks.

Avenue Review

The decor inside of the restaurant is beautiful. It has a Manhattan style theme to it.

We met one of the co-owners (Maria) who indicated that she eats gluten-free (GF). Almost every item on the menu is GF or can be made as such except or a few items which are denoted with an asterisk.

Our server Kara was extremely friendly and attentive. She had a great knowledge of the menu and the GF aspects of it.

I had the Avenue salad - poached pears, candied pecans, mixed green & crumbled blue cheese with a red wine vinaigrette dressing. For dinner, I ordered the Tuna Oscar and my wife had the gluten-free Basil Cream pasta with chicken based on a prior reviewer's recommendation. Both of our dishes can be summed up with one word...amazing!! The tuna was fresh and savory. It was topped with crab meat that was seasoned beautifully and the shoestring potatoes were so good that my wife couldn't resist continuing to reach onto my plate and steal them. Her GF pasta was fantastic. The cream sauce was light and flavorful and the pasta itself was tasty.

We finished the meal by ordering their GF creme brûlée. It was a little heavier than traditional creme brûlée, but tasted exactly the same. I would highly recommend the restaurant and every dish I referenced in this review to everyone...not just those with a gluten allergy.

Delicious gluten free pasta! I ordered the Basil Cream Pasta. My non-GF family enjoyed their meal as well (crab sliders and fish sandwich) We brought our 1-year old son and it wasn't a problem. Nice view of the water and the Festival Park attractions.
