This is not safe for celiacs. I asked if the french fries would be safe for my daughter and the waiter said absolutely. He then went on to say that they were made in the same fryer as other foods, but that they use canola oil which is ok for any allergies. He said he was told this by management or owner. I really can’t remember because I was so angry at this point that I stopped listening to him after such a ridiculous statement. I was glad I brought food for my daughter because there was no way that I would have trusted this restaurant at all.
The seafood chowder is amazing!
I’m gluten sensitive, not celiac, and didn’t have issues. I’ll be honest, I was there for the fries and they didn’t disappoint. Hadn’t had any in over a year. I ordered carpaccio and it came with toasted bread on top of some of the meat even though I said I was gluten free. I think this is a big and very busy place and they are not great with special order follow through. Be prepared to have to send something back if it’s not right.
I have never had a problem with cross contamination here. Limited choices, but food is always delicious!
Although popular restaurant with good food and ambiance, my celiac daughter had gf pasta dish but found regular pasta mixed into her dish. Although we explained we needed careful handling with her food due to cross contamination, we learned that the gf and regular pasta are cooked together after the fact!!! Maybe if we had spoken to manger to begin with, everything would have been handled different. Very frustrating!!!
After reading positive reviews, on vacation, we decided to head for CJ's for Father's Day. Everything seemed to be great until my 11 year old son who has celiac found a big gluten filled piece of pasta in his dish. Unfortunately, he didn't find it until the end of his meal. :( They didn't charge us for his meal, but I'm afraid the damage has already been done.
Any restaurant that has its own GF menu makes me very happy. It helps to know that they take it seriously! I've been here multiple times and thoroughly enjoy my food without any issues. The servers are educated in what we can/can't have and even told me that they can enter a "gluten" button to inform the kitchen to prepare the entire meal in a special manner.
They offer an allergen menu and many GF options are available. Our party had burgers and a Mediterranean chicken wrap in lettuce cups, all of which were excellent. Is on the marina and has outdoor seating and an outdoor bar. Very classy place but casual outside. Service was excellent!
great fish gf pasta waitree knew the allergy
