I felt very uncomfortable here trying to order and asking questions about gluten free options. The waitress wasn’t willing to work with me or tell me choices I had. They couldn’t do alterations or change sides. I don’t know if it was just this one waitstaff person but the experience makes me and my family to never want to go back.

This restaurant serves mostly fish. It looks delicious. I stopped in to see if they could do GF and they said most of their fish dishes are GF. Their sides are GF since they use cornstarch and not flour. However, their fries are fried in a shared fryer. So the fries are likely cross contaminated.

Ultimately, we ended up going somewhere else for dinner later that night. However, this restaurant looked really good. I will include a picture of the menu and the manager’s card, if you want to call them beforehand. They said they are currently working on a GF menu now. (April 2022)

Gave three stars since the person at the front was knowledgeable about what was gluten-free on the menu and the restaurant looked nice and clean and the fish looked fresh. Didn’t give 5 stars since we didn’t eat here so I don’t know for sure if the food is good or GF.

No gluten free items marked on the menu. I ordered what should be a naturally gluten free fish dish with veggies on the side, specifying a “gluten allergy” to the waitress. The waitress also got a bit short with all my questions which should have been a red flag to get out of there.

I ended up getting the worst gluten reaction I’ve had in a while.

Gluten Intolerant

Review


The food was wonderful and the staff was very knowledgeable and took extra care to ensure my dish was gluten free and that my intolerance was noted. A lot of variety of gluten free options when it comes to the main dishes. Many of the fish can be prepared without flour or grilled plain. Unsure if they use separate cooking utensils as I am not sensitive to that kind of cross contamination.

We stopped in here for lunch. The waiter said they could make many of the items gluten free and cook separate for safety. I ordered a gluten free burger, he said I couldn’t have the fries. Which was fine. They brought out my burger with fries. I was a little worried to eat here after this, but they did redo my food. I didn’t get sick, so that’s good.

No gf menu was offered. I was assured a dish was gf and when it came out I asked again and it wasn’t. Staff was NOT knowledgeable. Manager was not helpful. I’m disappointed that a nice restaurant such as this has no clue.
