The staff is very knowledgeable. There was plenty of GF options! Food was incredible I got the big fish seafood of the day which was gf penne pasta in a lobster sauce with an assortment of different kinds of seafood in it. My wife got the fish of the day which was Alaskan cod and sides and she loved it. Definitely will be back to this place Also the manager brings the allergen friendly food out which is always reassuring

Great, expansive gf menu. My 10 year old daughter and I enjoyed the calamari appetizer, seafood pasta and key lime cup for dessert. Everything was delicious and the service was great. We order regularly from Big Fish Market next door, and I didn't realize how many lunch options are available at Big Fish Grill. They may have the best GF menu we've seen in Southern Delaware including a kids menu.

Took gf very safe! Had manager come over to check on my food. Had the spicy Mayo poke tuna bowl and then the seafood pasta dish over gf penne for my entree. This was one of the best gf pasta dishes I ever had in a restaurant. Plenty of clams, mussels, salmon. White fish, shrimp. Will come back. No reactions. They flagged me as a Celiac and my food was delivered by the manager.

Excellent experience. They had a separate GF menu for me to order from. My appetizer and meal come out earlier than everyone else’s and from a different server who announced that my meal was GF. Get very comfortable ordering from here. (Food was also amazing!) They offer allergy free menus that include : gluten free, garlic free, egg free, dairy free, shellfish free, and vegan- not many options on vegan)

Great food and great service. Waitress was very knowledgeable and we felt safe with our order. Celiac daughter ordered crab legs and husband ordered blackened salmon. Would definitely go back. Make sure to go early they get very busy around 5:30. We went around 4:00 and not too busy.

I was diagnosed with celiacs 10 years ago, to date this is one of the places where I feel the most comfortable eating. Staff is knowledgeable and manager goes over everything with you. There are several gluten free options on the menu including pastas and crab cakes. 10/10 would recommend!

They have a number of “allergy” menus: gluten free, dairy free, egg free, garlic free, and vegan. The wait staff explained that when an item is ordered off an allergen free menu, they have to tell the manager who tells the chef and then the manager delivers that plate to the table.

This was truly the BEST dining experience I've had since going gluten-free three years ago. Because I don't have celiac, I typically simply adjust the menu when out to eat to be as gluten free as possible, and then deal with cross contamination and my inflammation later. This restaurant worked hard to make sure I didn't have concerns and took my allergy seriously. Staff was amicable and caring and food was AMAZING! I can't recommend this restaurant enough. It will definitely be one of my staples when in the area!!!!

They really went above and beyond to help me make my selections and also allow gluten to come to the table. All servers and managers were knowledgeable about gluten allergies. She told us the chain of command on how the chef speaks with management and to ensure that all food is prepared and kept away from other areas in the kitchen. No reaction and food was amazing. Loved my scallops and calamari (pan seared) can’t wait to come back!

I was very comfortable eating at this restaurant. The manger came out to talk to us about the safety procedures they have to make sure the food is gluten free. I didn’t get sick at all! They used different utensils and pots for the food

I got a rice bowl with salmon, clams, shrimp, and scallops. It was amazing. They have many options on their menu and even have gluten free dessert. We got the peanut butter cup and it was the best :)

I defiantly trust this place and would go back again !

The manager came out to confirm that all of our meals would be prepared separately. The crab cakes and peanut butter cup dessert were AMAZING. (Not just good for gluten free, actually amazing. The crab cake was almost all crab, not filler.) I felt like the prices were reasonable. My only regret was that we waited until our last day of vacation to go!

Incredible GF menu! The seafood chowder was some of the best I’ve ever had. Manager came out to check on us and verify everything was GF.

Celiac’s, do not skip this place!! The gluten-free menu is gigantic, so there is really something for anyone who has celiac disease. And if you want to have the best dessert in the area, go here. The peanut butter cup was literally one of the top 10 deserts I have ever had. The atmosphere is definitely family-friendly, but also a great place to take for a casual date. It has a chain restaurant feel, but is really nice.

Sunday night dining in August. Short wait, very attentive service, excellent soup, blackened swordfish, shrimp, and amazing key lime pie and peanut butter pie (even in a GF version, which was fabulous). Superior service on the Gluten Free side. Large menu of choices, knowledgeable server, visit from the manager to explain how they prepare GF items (which I almost never get, let alone get without asking). Highly recommended!

Extremely celiac friendly. You say the word celiac and they automatically have a manager come to your table and let you know they do their best including wearing gloves to prepare your meal. They have a separate gf menu. When I asked the bartender about the ingredients of a cocktail she was super friendly and asked if I wanted to look at the bottle of liqueur for ingredients. A vast difference between here and so many other place!
