I agree with other reviewers that the food and service was great here! There wasn’t a separate GF menu, but the waitress was knowledgeable about what could be made GF and double-checked with the kitchen when I had questions. There are more GF options at dinner than lunch, including seafood, steak, and burger options. The fries are made in a shared fryer. I had GF hard cider, a cheeseburger without the bun, and chips. I did have a small reaction after, but it was minor and the food was so good that I’d go again. I would just encourage folks to double-check about cross-contamination.

I usually assume that restaurants with vegan/vegetarian options flagged on the menu are less likely to have GF options (because they can only focus on so many things), Blacksmith proved me wrong. The server had a cheat sheet for the day's menu options that were already GF, and she was ready with more detailed answers re: what ingredients were in sauces, etc. I'm not Celiac so I can't speak to that level of cross-contamination that might be in the kitchen, but they clearly get enough GF customers in that they're prepared for them.

We had asked for the bread to come out on a separate plate from the cheese board; it came on the board itself. There were enough other allergens for me personally on the board (which I didn't mention at the time of ordering) that I passed on it entirely and let the rest of the table have it, but the server was so accommodating that I'm sure if we'd raised a fuss about it, they'd have made a new one.

Everything was delicious and I was glad to hear they had a flourless dessert option, although I didn't partake.

Excellent food and service! I have Celiac so I called the day before because there was no gf menu online. The woman whom I spoke with on the phone suggested a salad with added steak, burger without the bun (shared fryer though so could not get the fries), or a seafood dish. I ended up getting the sea bass special and it was one of the tastiest meals I've had. Even better was I had no reaction! I will definitely come back next time I'm at the beach.
