I went here looking for something I could eat safely, but the waiter informed me that they dont have anything gluten free, only “gluten sensitive”. He said everything would probably be cross contaminated as there is a lot of gluten in the kitchen. I ended up going across the street to islands instead. Not sure if they changed their policy or what, but it doesn’t seem like a safe place to eat if you’re gluten free.

No problems eating here. I was so excited to be able to eat at Forest's restaurant. I had a lovely salad but they forgot my shrimp (which could be substituted for chicken). The gluten free menu was reasonable and they were really good reducing cross contamination and checking all ingredients of the dressing.

They don’t have a gf menu, it’s gluten sensitive. However, speak with manager when ordering and she will help. I have shrimp and crab in a dish, didn’t want gf bun. Also fries are gf. I am celiac and no problem and food was delicious.

Our server wasn't sure about GF items but stated that they are not a GF environment and the menu items are 'gluten sensitive' rather than gluten free. I decided to take the risk as I'd seen positive reviews. After ordering the manager came over to assure me they would take precautions as my order was flagged as gluten allergy. I had jenny's surf and turf (grilled salmon and shrimp with steamed rice and broccoli) thinking this was the safest option. It was delicious but unfortunately I was unwell afterwards so there must have been cross contamination somewhere. Maybe I was just unlucky but I wouldn't recommend for celiac. A shame because the food was really yummy.

We felt like it was bit pricey for what you get but we were in Destin looking for seafood and they have GF seafood options. Pretty tasty. Staff was familiar with what menu options were GF. We had the surf and turf as well as the Bourbon St Mahi Mahi with shrimp. Over the past couple years we’ve eaten there a few times now. No issues after the meal.

I have been to about 6 different restaurants of this chain and always have a great time and dinner. There are only 5 different dishes available which are gluten free including salmon, ribeye, Mahi mahi and shrimp. They are all labeled Gluten free on the menu and they are all great. Staff understands about gluten free and I have never had any problems. I would give it 5 stars if it had more options.

Ordered the Chicken/Strawberry Salad. Was very good and had no issues whatsoever. Small selection of GF items but items were clearly marked on menu and server seemed knowledgeable on ensuring there would be no cross contact.

One thing to note was that my salad didn’t come out w/ chicken on it despite it clearly being written on the menu. Then they tried to upcharge me, odd. Weird; but hey, figured I’d mention it.
