    We love Back Porch, but this was our first visit since my husband was diagnosed with Celiac. The waiter didn't know what gluten was and said that "he thought the grill was hot enough to burn off any wheat." Fortunately we had grilled fish and a baked potato and he didn't get sick.

    I'm not sure when the review below was written for the Back Porch, but we were just there as a family (6/4/2015) and they had designated gf menus that had everything from appetizers to kids menu options. Awesome experience for a celiac family in a town that isn't too friendly for us.

    The food was amazing! I ordered the shrimp and crab salad expecting to eat it without dressing- but the dressing was gluten free! The bread on the sandwiches are gluten free too! The raw oysters were amazing! I can't wait to go back.

    So so food. One gluten free menu at table on single sheet of paper in a plastic protector sheet. Definitely not a priority. Obvious options--grilled seafood. Fries not gluten free.
