    Menu clearly lists what can be made gluten free and there are plenty of options

    Menu has red stars for foods that can be prepared gluten free, but clearly don't understand how to do it safely. Very overpriced dinner that's left me glutened and miserable on my vacation. NOT SAFE FOR CELIACS!!! When I called to try to figure out how much gluten was in my system, the manager told me she would only talk to me if I first went to the local ER where they would do "a test" to confirm that I had been glutened by their food. Clearly LITTLE TO NO UNDERSTANDING of celiac disease. WORST experience ever!!!

    This place was awesome. They had so many gluten free options. They gave us boiled peanuts in place of bread. We had fish that was amazing. The salad was great. The appetizers were delicious and we had a sweet potato casserole that was so great. It reminded me of pecan pie.

    Great seafood and lots of gf options. Our dinner party had mahi, lobster, & oysters with various sides - all gluten free and delicious. One person had pasta (gluten) and didn't love it. But all of us that ordered gf had no issues (a celiac & 2 with Hashimotos). Waitstaff was able to answer any questions & was knowledgeable.

    Holy moly!! Super awesome food. Almost everything is GF. Doesn't look like much from the outside; but probably the best crab legs I've ever had. Green beans will bacon salt were great too!! No room for dessert.

    I loved this place! I had a wonderful meal with no fear of gluten. We shared the charbroiled oysters to start. Delicious!! The parmesan crusted yellow-tail with crab topping was o e of best meals I've had in a long time. It was top-notch in a bit of a hole in the wall place. Will return!

    A variety of gluten free seafood options! My dad and I got king crab legs and yellowtail with mango salsa. Both were delicious, I would also recommend the side of the grilled mushrooms, they were absolutely delicious. Second time- my dad liked the steak salad and the Parmesan crusted yellowtail was a little heavy on the Parmesan but it was so good. Sweet potato fries were AMAZING. Revising this review with regret- food is still 5 stars but on the third time back, we found out that the sweet potato fries are not gluten free after all (wtf) despite being on the gf menu and being told by the waiter that they are. And I ate them last time. Food was still great but beware, there are poor misinformed souls working here, with a non-updated menu and waiters with no knowledge :(

    What a diamond in the rough! Pulling up and walking in we weren't sure how it was going to be as was not as it's not as done up as most key restaurants however it was the best one we went to! Fabulous gluten free menu with lots of options all the way to desserts the mango brûlée was awesome! The service was also the best we had in the keys our waitress Bianca was very sweet brought out boiled peanuts since I couldn't have the bread and was overall a spectacular waitress so courteous about having food allergies!!

    I love that they are knowledgeable about gluten free and also have a separate vegan menu. I got the spinach salad with avocado and grilled mango and it was flavorful and huge! I'd return!

    Great, best I've had on the Keys! particularly for the money. Fries and the Strawberry sorbet are worth the visit. Service is very good and they know about gluten free eating.
