Well, we got carry out. We have to navigate various combos of gf, df, nf. Called in the order, the person taking the order was patient and knowledgeable. Important to know that crab cakes are gf (and delicious) but the fries it comes with are shared fryer. But the complete entree item (crab cakes, fries, slaw) is listed as gf on the menu. So be sure to ask questions. We were able to sub the fries without an upcharge. Food was great, I didn't get sick. HOWEVER, my husband (gf,df) ordered fish tacos. They were supposed to be on corn tortillas. We didn't open until we got home but we are 95% sure they gave us flour tortillas. Their consistency was the same as my daughter's quesadilla made with flour tortillas. To be safe, he did not eat them. So a bit of disappointment, to be sure. I would cautiously recommend, at least the crab cakes.

GF items are clearly marked on the menu and the server and manager were both knowledgeable and helpful in identifying safe food. I was able to have chicken wings (baked not fried) and a delicious piece of carmelized salmon with mashed potatoes and rice. The potions were generous as well. I definitely would return!

Separate gf menu with lots of options. The manager came to our table and told me they take celiac and other allergies very seriously. She said they change gloves regularly and understand cross contamination. She brought my meal out separately. I had crabcakes with mashed potatoes and veggies. It was delicious! I did not get sick. Highly recommend if you have celiac!

Crab soup? Five stars! Delicious!! Veggie plate? YUM!! Risotto? Out of this world! Seafood tower? Meh. The raw oysters and clams were great as well as the shrimp but the lobster was too cold and tough. I wouldn’t get that again. Lobster bolognese? Surprisingly good. I never order GF pasta but my husband got the gluten free version of this so we could share. I had a different expectation for this. Good if you like a blush sauce. Service was great. Manager came over to confirm everything was GF. They take being GF seriously as well as other allergies. We will likely return just for the soup and risotto!

Excellent gluten free food. Very attentive. The manager came out and spoke to us and was very helpful. Best gluten free option around Bethany Beach in my opinion.

My favorite place in Bethany! They have a separate GF menu, which is always appreciated and a manager comes out to talk about how the food will be prepared and brings it out themself to assure you there is no contamination. Really thoughtful and really appreciated. My favorites are the cast-iron calamari and the shrimp or fish tacos. They also have great salads!

The staff was great. Waitress took my order, then had the manager come over to explain their gf protocol. Meal was brought out by the manager separately from rest of the table orders. Had delicious crab cakes, sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes. Plus they had a gf peanut butter pie for dessert which was super yummy! Be sure to specify gf when ordering dessert because they make regular and gf versions and that wasn’t clear on the menu. I was really happy that the waitress asked me to confirm. We came back the next night because I was so happy with the food.

Very good food. Extensive gluten free menu. Manager came to the table to discuss food handling. Couldn’t promise no cross contamination but said they’d change gloves, and manager brought GF food out separately.

Great experience. Manager comes to your table after you order to go over how your food will be prepared. My celiac kids split a gf pasta with a crab cake on top. Very knowledgeable. Finally, a safe restaurant at the beach.!!!

Best GF dining experience we have ever had. Manager came to table to explain GF cooking process. Staff communicates via earpieces to ensure all staff is on the same page. Food came out separately and was delivered by a manager. Everything was excellent! Couldn’t be more pleased.

They had a separate gluten free menu, with gluten free crabcakes and peanut butter pie which was amazing. The manager comes out and talks to you about how they handle your food and the manager brings your food out, the staff was awesome.
