I visited here in 2019 and did well with the fish taco (not breaded) with mango salsa, and fries were not cooked with other items. I did not get sick and the meal was tasty. I revisited here in July 2022. The server was familiar with gluten free needs and stated the fries are sometimes cooked in the same oil as other items (depends on the day and time and supply factors). She said you would need to ask each time when visiting if the fries are safe at the time of ordering. She said they could accommodate not breading the fish, but not clear how safe it was. The fish was also more dry this time. You might be able to eat some of their salad options. I would not recommend this restaurant at this time.

VERY small but separate gluten free menu, 5 or 6 items at most. I had the Half Pound of Fire with the gf options they list on the menu which was yummy Cajun shrimp sautéed with garlic butter over a cabbage slaw. Nice and fresh shrimp, surprisingly spicy. Experience was good, but the gf menu was so incredibly small that I likely won’t be back again.

I went here because it had 5 stars on Find Me GF. I was very disappointed. They had about 5 items on the GF menu. Fairly certain I got cross contamination because I had a reaction within less than 30 minutes.

They offer a small gluten free menu. When the waitress brought it she described all of the options to me and told me that the fries were not in a dedicated fryer and not to order them if I am sensitive and have celiac. I had a lettuce wrapped burger and a baked potato. I did not get sick at all after eating here.

Staff seemed very knowledgeable about gluten free and cross contamination. I have the grilled fish tacos with coleslaw and they were delicious. I also had a cider on draft. Tacos were huge with tons of fish. Will be back!

Not a dedicated facility, but accommodations are easy and the staff knowledgeable. Sadly no gluten free chowder. But the fish & chips (or baked potato) totally hit the spot. And the prices were super reasonable.

Ask for the gluten free menu, get the fish tacos!! Do not get the fries with it, no dedicated fryer. I substituted with coleslaw but gave it to my friend, so can’t vouch for it. I have celiac and did not get sick.

The fish and oysters can be grilled gluten free and a baked potato can be substituted for the fries. They don’t have a dedicated fryer but the staff is knowledgeable and friendly and food is wonderful

Very cute place. Small gluten free menu, but the staff was very knowledgeable about other items on the menu that were GF. Very reasonable prices. The whole family really enjoyed their meals. Would definitely go again.
