Went here last fall for the first time and got excellent fish and chips to go. Went again today since we were out that way and was able to sit on their patio and enjoy their tapas experience. We shared the pear salad, regular and sweet potato fries, gf beer battered cod and fried calamari. Food was excellent and service fast. Great experience. Just about everything there is gf. I wanted to try dessert but I was too full.

The owner has celiac so they are very cautious. Almost all of their menu is GF.

One of the servers said a dessert was gluten free but it wasn’t. I got super sick for several days. I didn’t realize it was this restaurant until we went back and that same dessert was marked as being not gluten free.

I’ve eaten there twice and have not gotten sick. Dedicated fryer

Food is amazing!! One of my new favorite places to eat. Most things are gluten free. I’ve had the bacon wrapped dates, fried fish and sweet potato fries, fried cod tacos and all were amazing. Most things are gluten free or can be made gluten free. Hubby has corn allergy and all they have are corn tortillas so they made tacos into a rice bowl which he said was amazing.

Great outdoor patio area. Other people we were with had bacon wrapped cream cheese stuffed jalapeños, seared tuna tacos and Cobb chicken salad and both enjoyed their meal very much

Delicious food. Lots of gf options...calamari, lump crab cakes, & fish and chips. Ate here twice. 1st time I got lump crab and a slight cross contamination. I called and they were very kind and apologetic and said they would speak to kitchen. Went back and had fish and chips with no issues.

I am so happy! I've been to Carmen's several times now and have been absolutely thrilled! Bring Celiac, I often feel like I'm rolling dice that hate me when my husband and I decide to dine out, but this place... This place is incredible! I have so many choices and everything I've had has been wonderful. Yes, the fish and chips were devine, but the Caprese Chicken sandwich was fantastic as well. I will definitely be returning again and again and again... Thank you to Carmen's for giving me a safe place to eat! P.S. My husband, the gluten glutton, also loves the place!
