A deep-fried dream for people with celiac. The staff was warm and welcoming and knowledgable. We had someone with celiac (me), someone gluten intolerant, and someone with no gluten issues at our table, and the food waitress was able to cater to all our needs. I wanted to cry, the fried seafood platter was so good—dedicated fryer, so no worries there. Also highly recommend the oysters (raw and charcoal grilled), and fries.
Have eaten at Casamentos 5 or 6 times without a problem. All fried seafood is gluten free. They have Redbridge beer. On my last visit, they had a continuous line quite literally out the door, so early is best for lunch. Our server (the owner) was very attentive. The only modification to the seafood platter is to ask for no toast. As busy as they were, the owner came out of the kitchen to tell me that a piece of toast had accidentally been put on my plate and asked if I was celiac. They made me a new plate no problem. 5 stars.
All fried seafood and french fries are gluten free!!! They also have gluten free beer. We had the fried crab claws appetizer and fried oyster dinner - what a treat!!! This place is an institution. It's very casual but Zagat rated. Cash only. They take a long summer vacation - not a bad idea to call before going.
This place is closed. Boo. Nothing says why or if it's permanent.
Knowledgeable server! She was extremely reassuring about the safety of the kitchen for a very sensitive celiac.
GF fried food! This place is great. Hole in the wall, looks terrible but the food is delicious and I didn’t get sick. I got the fried shrimp and fried. No CC. They are out, but normally they have GF beer too!
Great fried food, we had fried crab claws for an appetizer and then I had fried shrimp and French fries, finally fried food that I can eat. celiac safe, the staff is very well educated
Amazing food and service! Staff was very knowledgeable. The oyster stew is fabulous. The fried oysters are the best I’ve ever had. Fried shrimp was super delicious. Fries are also safe and so good. Highly recommend!
Didn't get sick, had the seafood platter, fried everything and fries all safe. But I had to give it 4 stars because it was a little bit of a grouchy place, I was afraid to ask questions. They're cash only. To get to the bathroom you walk through the kitchen and behind the people cooking and frying things. It's a little sketch back there. Also you really should try to get there as they open because the line barely moves after that. Took a very long time to get our food. Had raw oysters first and they were not cleaned properly which made me regret ordering them. Also, what we ordered was quite expensive for them to just be throwing everything in a fryer, but that's just one person's opinion. Make sure they don't put bread on your plate!
This place is so good we eat there twice on a trip if we can. Best chargrilled oysters I've ever had. Fried fish? YES!! Fries? YES!!! Fried oysters? YES!! I can't stress to you enough how perfect this precious place is.
All fried seafood is completely gluten free. Seafood platter was incredible!
I felt like royalty the first time I went to this resturaunt. The waitress understood I have Celiac, and was cautious to keep bread away from my plate. She was very friendly and helpful. Sadly, the second time I went, the waitress blamed the bread under my gf seafood on the kitchen and suggested I eat around it. Make sure you insist on no bread on your plate!
If you're a fan of fried food, this is the place to go. All batter and fryers are gluten free.
Great service. We got the fried seafood platter to-go and it was delicious. The homemade horseradish ketchup was really good. For a gluten-free girl with a severe gluten allergy having fried seafood was a treat!
OMG so yum! Such a great gf option!
great fried food. service can be spotty. they have given me bread on my food a couple of times. check website to make sure they are open.
The only place in the city that I know of that has gluten free fried seafood. Their crab claws are delicious, calamari, shrimp and oysters - yum!
Friendly and best fried seafood!
In a city full of great seafood, casamento has stood the test of time by staying in business since 1919! luckily, even this classic has updated over time to accommodate all diners and their seafood batter is now gluten-free! So there's no reason not to indulge in a seafood platter full of oysters, shrimp, crab claws, trout and French fries!
Incredible! So nice to have fried food again, if only for one meal. Really friendly, great food.
The best - just like everyone says. I hadn't had fried anything in almost a year, so it was fun to feel like a normal person again. Almost brought a tear to my eye. Or maybe that was the hot sauce, I dunno. Anyway, the line was long but it was worth the wait. Go ahead and get the seafood platter (with trout!) - you've earned it.
The first time I've been able to eat fried foods. Instead of " 3 things I CAN have" it was " you can have everything on the menu except 3 things". It tasted good. Had to wait for a little but for a table, WELL worth the wait for anyone with Celiac Disease. I will be back!!!
Food was great and not a bit of gluten! I shared the fried seafood platter with someone else and it was the perfect portion. Really hit the spot
This was heaven! Awesome fried calamari and crab claws; can't wait to go back for soft shell crab!
Awesome. And they serve Redbridge Beer. The fried shrimp and the fried trout are top notch.
