Been here multiple times when we're in Ogunquit and my celiac daughter requested it again this visit. Had the fried pickles and the meatballs for apps and she had the mac and cheese with the beef brisket. All good, no reactions as always. Tons of options on a well labeled menu. Well informed staff.
The fact that I have driven by this place for years and didn’t know they had gluten free options makes me a little upset but oh my god! The food is fabulous!!! The service is great and they are very knowledgeable about Celiacs and gluten free food. This place alone is a reason to go to Maine.
5 Stars all the way. So many Gluten Free options. I couldnt make up my mind. So my boyfriemd got a gluten free dish so we shared... Chicken parm & Scallop Kabob with sweet potaote fries, brussel sprouts and reg fries... Fabulous will be back for sure
Almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free! I had steak tips, chicken tenders, and French fries and didn’t get sick! They also have a gluten free chocolate cake for dessert. I’m from southern NH and I would travel back up to Maine just to go to this place again. Amazing!
I have celiac disease went here because of the reviews. I got. the tried haddock and fries it was good and didn't get sick. two other people with me didn't like their food one got the special smoked primary rib and the other meal was salmon with pasta not going back 👎
EVERYTHING fried is gluten free!! Everything from the smoker is gluten free, so many options, including most appetizers. My husband and I shared the gluten free Mac and cheese with pulled pork and a half rack of ribs which comes with three sides! We went with a group of 8 and every single person enjoyed their meal. The coleslaw wasn’t that great but we also tried the fried mozzarella and fried pickles. I seriously can’t wait to go back!
NEW MENU ALERT! Beach fire has recently rolled out a new menu where 90% of the menu is gluten free or can be made gluten free, INCLUDING FRIED ITEMS!! Wahoo. So I had mozzarella sticks, fried pickles, French fries and chicken fingers! (Most of which I haven’t had in YEARS out at a restaurant) As a celiac who gets sick at the drop of a hat, I can safely say I did not have a reaction here :)
I had barbecue brisket and smoked chicken. The only GF side that came with it was cole slaw, but I also added on grilled asparagus which was tasty. The brisket was very good -- the chicken not as much. I didn't get glutened, but the meal was pretty hard to digest for those of us with sensitive stomachs.
I was so, so disappointed with this entire experience. I do not blame the restaurant for this part, but we were a single couple with no kids and were placed between two tables both with young children and infants in a small hallway cove, and we could barely hear each other across the table. Despite that, they had been advertising gluten-free, so I was still optimistic. Then I realized that this place had no real dedicated gluten free offerings or a full menu, only things that were marked as gf or "could be made gf". Being on the coast, I opted for the breaded fish... which was only a dry little square with nothing but a splash of wine on the top, spinach with lemon, and stale roasted potatoes. The lemonade machine was broken, but nobody knew until I told them they had served me lemon-scented water. This was the most expensive dinner I ate on my entire vacation, and hands down the absolute worst. What's the point of advertising that you're gf friendly if you're not even going to try?
