Excellent experience!! The manager came to our table and patiently explained which items on the menu are gluten cree (most of the menu is gluten free and they have Udis buns for sandwiches). They even made the wings gluten free for us. The food is absolutely fresh, delicious, and plentiful. Three members of our party had celiac and not a single reaction. Couldn't recommend more! Just note that the fryer is not gluten free but they will bake or broil items that would normally be friend to accommodate.

Ugh. Went to the Bethany blues in Lewes pre-COVID and had an excellent experience. The Bethany location, not so much. Our server was very uninformed about gluten free, and even went so far to say to me that all gluten free bread is disgusting. Like, really? Keep that to yourself, it’s rude and I told him as much. The food was just ok, but the food runner who brought it out did have gloves on and said he was bringing an “allergy item” out which reassured me that at least the food was safe. Really disappointed in our server and his attitude about gluten free. It’s not like it’s a choice for us.

My son has celiac and was able to enjoy the ribs and pulled pork. He also was able to get a side of delicious garlic mashed potatoes and bacon!

The corn bread and sweet butter was an amazing addition to our meal.
The avocado deviled eggs topped with crab meat and sriracha served as an appetizer.

Did something a tad different this evening, drove up to Bethany Beach Delaware for dinner. Informed our waiter who happened to be the manager my wife was GF and DF intolerant. He immediately informed us of what items were and were not GF. Hands down, the absolute best ribs I have ever eaten, and I have eaten me some ribs. St. Louis style were amaZing. The baby backs were delish! The cornbread was pallet busting delicious and those eggs, those eggs were deviled avocado, topped with crab meat and a splash of sriracha sauce. Garlic smashed taters and four slices of thick cut blue bacon as my sides.

The wait to be seated was projected to be 40 mins and it was exactly 41 till we were seated. They seemed a tad understaffed for a weekend of a huge event in town. We were so blown away by the food and service, the wait did not matter.

Called ahead of time to ask questions - after the manager explained what is and isn’t gluten free based on what I was looking at on the menu, he asked if I had any questions and answered them all. I know you can’t guarantee it to be safe, but lots of precautions were made and he understood celiac as an allergy. He came to the table and gave another run through and made sure I felt comfortable. I had the ribs, mashed potatoes, and coleslaw and it was all amazing! I would highly recommend and definitely return. All meat is gf except the sausage which is cooked somewhere else and not in the smoker. The main house bbq sauce is gf. Everybody loved their food!

Staff is knowledgeable. When you order gluten free they are supposed to have the manager come to your table. He will tell you if your order is good. They use clean gloves and utensils for gluten free items.

Per my previous experience here, the waiter had the manager come to our table and she reviewed my GF options. I decided on a crab cake(delicious) and a cup of the beef vegetable soup that was outstanding.

Lots of gluten free options here. Most of the meat is fine. Their blue bottle spicy bbq sauce is gluten free. Lots of sides to choose from as well (though not a dedicated fryer so no fries). When you let your server know you have a gluten allergy they notify the manager who always comes by to check in with you and confirm whether everything you ordered is ok. They also notify the chef. Delicious bbq!!
