    The food from the dedicated fryer was bland and old tasting. The chowder was decent. They have gluten free cones but the ice cream is also dipped into regular cones so definitely cross contaminated. Staff was very personable and friendly. Very small, 3 table joint. We wouldn’t drive out if our way to go back and are opting to hit the grocery and pack sack lunches for tomorrow rather than return.

    WOW. This was the highlight of my recent beach trip. I love that they cater to both gluten loving and gluten free folks. I have celiac disease and my partner doesn't. We were in heaven at this place. They offer both a gluten and a gluten free/celiac friendly (separate fryer) menu. Allison and Patrick, the owners, put love into every meal. Food is clearly their passion. Allison won't send an order out until it's absolutely perfect. Patrick watched me bite into my first gluten free onion ring, as if the world depended on it, because he cared that much about the food being "just right." Their chowder (gluten free, pescatarian friendly) was delicious! This place is an absolute GEM.

    Wonderful fish and chips. Dedicated fryer. Staff super friendly. Its a busy little place with not a lot of seating, but it definitely will be my goto place on each trip to the coast. The clam chowder is gluten and bacon free and is very tasty too.

    They even made my gf fish and chips dairy free too. Every time I come, they seem to be understaffed and there's a long wait, but for celiac competent staff and kitchen, it's totally worth it.

    I loved the serve! They are very knowledgeable about celiac and gluten intolerance. This is the first place I have gone to where I had NO cross contamination with my fries, and the first time I've had fish and chips AND onion rings since diagnosed almost 3 years ago. I will definitely be going again.

    Great clam chowder. Great gf fries! Going back later this week for fish and chips. Owner very knowledgeable. Referred me to this app to check for other places to eat. Depose Bay is an interesting town. Loved seeing whales while standing on sidewalk! Went back and had gf fish and chips. Delicious!

    Best gluten free food place! Ordered GF onion rings!!! Also when we came in was asked if there was anyone in the party who has a gluten allergy. That makes me feel so safe at eating here! They have gluten free fish and chips! I am so excited for this place. The onion rings are amazing!! It's a must stop!!! Dedicated fryers also!!

    Not only were they very nice, but also knowledgable and spent time explaining their process. With no wheat flour in their restaurant (except pre-breaded items) and dedicated fryers for GF we felt comfortable eating there, which doesn't happen often. Thx Bay Walk Cafe!!! Not a healthy option by any means but a nice treat when you never get fish & chips.

    small but very friendly, good service and glutin free menu. They are very careful that there is no contamination. The staff and owner are very knowledgeable about glutin free, right down to glutin free catsup. We saw their sign driving through Depot Bay for Glutin Free Chowder. So we stopped and found that they had glutin free Fish & chips,VERY GOOD, and the fries options were garlic, regular and ranch, all glutin free. We had the garlic, mmmm. They also have glutin free ice cream and ice cream cones. I highly recommend the Bay Walk Cafe.

    Really disappointed. I heard this is under new ownership, so hopefully it was just an off day for them. The fish and chips were super greasy. The clam chowder was watery and lacked flavor. Would not try again. Would not recommend.

    You would think you could get some GF fish and chips in Vancouver...nope! But this place was amazing. No reaction whatsoever. The batter had a nice texture, seasoned also perfectly, the meat was very moist, flaky, and taste was amazing. Five Stars from the guy who was shot and stabbed.

    This is a casual, low-key cafe. Seating is VERY limited, but it is located right on 101, and there is an overlook with parking right across the street. If you want a formal setup, this is not for you. If you want a friendly place to sit down (if there is space), and enjoy a gluten free seafood treat while playing Yatzee or other board game they have on hand, this IS. We were ecstatic to find this cafe, and are very glad we found it. If you are GF, you know how limited dining options are. It isn't super fancy, but it IS tasty food and a friendly place. She even stayed open later than she had planned and reopened the fryers that she had cleaned in prepping to leave. We will be back!

    The fried food is fantastic but SLOW and the hours are limited and inconsistent. I bet they will close, and it will be because of poor business practices, not because it was GF or bad food.

    Overpriced. Overcrowded. The waitress made a rude remark about my 4 year old spilling her water despite the fact that I was the one to crawl under the table to clean it. Was snide when I asked for more water and brought warm tap water. It took 27 minutes after half of our food was brought to get the other half.

    Super bummed!! Closed and it's 3pm :-(( Celiac and very limited food options here on the coast . We looked for a website or a dedicated facebook to find out hours and couldn't find anything. Wished they would create at LEAST and Facebook page to list when they are going to be there.

    The fish and chips were amazing! I haven't had something so yummy since going gf. The lower rating is because we waited for over an HOUR for our food!! That part was utterly ridiculous!

    The portions have been greatly reduced, although the food is still good, having to listen to the woman drone on and on an over share personal details really detracted from the experience

    Fish was good but rice flour breading was thick and gummy in the inside. It's a tiny shop, so you need to bring plenty of patience.

    We just left Bay Walk Cafe after enjoying a GF lunch of fish and chips and clam chowder. First of all, the chowder was excellent! This was the first time I have had fish and chips in 6 years. Thank you!

    Great GF chowder and the fish/chicken strips excellent too. Had a nice conversation with one of the staff who is gluten intolerant too. He experiments with grain free and alternately other allergen free baked goods, be sure to ask about the days selection.
