Waitress had no idea what a gluten allergy was. I ordered the steamed crab legs as it was only thing I felt safe getting, they are cooked in traditional old bay seasoning. I asked her to make sure no bread was on my plate. Meal came out with a roll touching the crab legs. Ugh!

My food was delivered with a roll on the plate but they took it back & got me a new plate fairly quickly. The waiter knew off the top of his head what was safe. There are several fresh seafood options that are not fried, but not many appetizers.

They unfortunately did not have a gluten free menu but the waitress was knowledgeable and able to point out some menu items. I enjoyed the Bihimini steamed shrimp. I did not have a reaction. I would definitely eat here again.

We ate here twice during our vacation. We had grilled fish, crab legs, and gulf reds with the corn and potatoes. We let them know about our needs and they had the cooks change gloves. It was delicious and no gluten reaction. Less of a wait if you go for lunch around 1.

We had the crab legs and red shrimp. Very good, and no reaction. There is not a dedicated gf menu, but they were knowledgeable enough that I felt safe ordering steamed foods from there. We will be back the next time we're in town.

They do not have a gluten free menu. The waiter was also clueless about gluten free foods. However, they do have steamed and grilled foods on the menu. The sides are also steamed so I do recommend this restaurant even though they are not considered a gluten free establishment. I did not have any kind of gluten reaction to the steamed shrimp I ate.
