    The Black Marlin has GF options marked on their menu, the wait staff was knowledgeable regarding allergies and they were accommodating to create a dish for me. As I am not a seafood fan, they had sirloins/fillet/grilled chicken options as well as vegetables (the seasonal vegetable mix contains dairy, I opted for individual vegetables). The food was delicious and it was refreshing not feeling sick on vacation!

    GF menu items marked. I got the stuffed chicken breast with mashed sweet potatoes and asparagus. Did not get sick. Service wasn't great, but outdoor atmosphere is nice. We ate indoors because the wait was long for outside.

    Just like the other review said...wish we would have found his place before our last night. Simply amazing, and delicious. By far, best meal of our entire trip.

    Food was delicious and staff was very friendly. Menu was marked with gluten free options which were extensive. I had the broiled scallops with side of rice and black beans and steamed veggies. We didn't have reservations and were seated outside right away. Great experience! Definitely will go back!!

    Great gluten free menu and knowledgeable staff! The only disappointment was we didn't discover the restaurant until the last evening.

    My son has celiac and this restaurant was great. The gluten free items are indicated on the menu taking the guess work out. He had the shrimp appetizer and lobster tail with baked potato and veggies. Of course, being a 12 year old boy, he didn't eat the veggies, but everything else was wonderful! The only disappointment for him was the dessert. The only gluten free option was creme brûlée which was not interesting to him. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone with celiac visiting Hilton Head!

    They had the GF items identified on their website menu. I had a wonderful salad w/ fresh avocado, shrimp, pineapple, egg, tomatoes & some things I'm forgetting. Great dine in/outside atmosphere!

    Best crab legs I’ve ever had by far. They were big, juicy and had lots of meat. I could tell they weren’t soaked in water or over boiled. Cooked perfectly. I was starving and inhaled them. I just wanted more and more of them. Aaron said I had a ravenous look in my eyes and at one point was double fisting crab legs and green beans. It was a sight to be seen. The green beans were crispy and tasted great. Nothing special about the baked potato, it’s really hard to screw them up. Aaron had some fried shrimp tacos and raved about them. For desert, he had a molten chocolate lava cake and I watched him eat it.
