I ordered a strawberry salad with chicken and Nima tested positive for gluten. Would not recommend.

The server was educated on exactly which items could be prepared gluten free. My daughter has celiac. The fries are able to be prepared GF but they will come with no seasoning. They had mahi mahi and at least 5 other gluten free menu items besides the salads. The items are not marked gluten free on the menu but the staff is well prepared.

A manager had to assist with what few items were able to be made gf. (Salad, salmon and their flounder dish only.) It tasted good, but I did have issues afterwards, so I’m not very confident in their gf practices.

Expensive for what you get. Not worth it honestly. Still got sick as well.

The crab boil I had was great! They have designated platters for GF. I was told the seasoning options- garlic/Cajun were not GF, so I did not uses them.

Great customer service!

I'm celiac. This place just didn't want to accommodate me. CYA comments in menu stating basically to order and eat at own risk. No guarantees. Our server was clueless. Management called in, tried to assist but busy multitasking. I felt 3rd class. Good thing I'm used to these types of places and ordered carefully with no issues. But was scared for hours with thoughts of contamination. I won't waste my time with them again. They lost not only me but a table.

When I ordered my food, I told the waiter I have celiac disease and he had a confused look on his face. And I explained how I cannot come into contact with gluten and if he could make sure they take extra measures to make it gluten free. He agreed and went back to the kitchen, but came back a minute later with a small pad of paper and asked if I could write down the name of what I have because he wasn't sure if he spelled it right and wanted to make sure the chefs knew what he meant. When the food came out the manager brought me my food separate and said "here is your gluten free meal" even though they don't have a gluten free kitchen, I didn't get sick after and I am very glad they put in the extra effort!

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.
