It was pretty good! All their fried fish is made in a dedicated gluten free fryer. Their tater tots are gluten free as well. On the menu they have clearly identified what’s gluten free and what’s not.

If you want a short review… the fish and chips and the clam chowder were incredible! If you want more details… I was visiting the Cape and ate GF fish and chips at 4 restaurants over 1 weeks time. Theirs were hands down the best. I ended up eating here twice. They also have the best tartar sauce. My wife had the clam chowder and described it as amazing. I ordered this as take out. They went to great lengths to avoid CC and labeled everything as GF. I really appreciate their level of carefulness…but the quality made me write this review. Also, many restaurants are closed in the off-season. However they are open year-round. Their quality of food and service explain why.

Cleat & Anchor has an extensive GF menu including bbq ribs, wings, chowder and a wide array of deep fried foods, so you are able to get your Cape Cod fried clam fix. Great GF buns for burgers and sandwiches - try the GF fried chicken breast sandwich. Always a GF cider on draft too. Staff is knowledgeable and there is a dedicated GF fryer.

Awesome options here! Staff is knowledgeable and they can accommodate majority of the menu GF. We tried the GF Totchos, Fish and Chips, and Scallops and all 3 dishes were amazing. If you’re looking for the New England staples- they have GF clam chowder too! The fish and chips are battered in corn flour. Will definitely return the next time I’m on the cape!

Was totally wowed by their GF options. The waiter made me feel very comfortable that the chef really understood the needs of celiacs. I had the BBQ sampler plus French onion soup, followed by homemade New York cheesecake smothered in raspberries. When I asked if something was gluten free, the response was , “of course!” The dedicated fryer made it possible for me to have wings and tater tots. Everything was delicious and I did not get sick at all!

We had a great outdoor dinner here. The clam chowder was a delightful treat! I had a pulled pork “sandwich”, which means. Crock and no bread. It was good, but not memorable. It came with GF fried pickle chips (those were great!) and tater tots. They have a dedicated frier and overall everything was above average. Our waitress was great!

Update: I get take-out from here every week. You can order online and curbside pickup. I think their menu is pared down a little now, but i love their food and have never had any reaction. big portions!

I have eaten here many times, and never had any problems.

Fried Calamari app. - one of the best I've ever had. there are a few, small pickled peppers that are battered and hidden with the squid.

Chicken Tenders app. - I sometimes order this "to go" and pick it up. Add tater tots for $2 and it is a full meal.

Chicken fried fish n' tots - GREAT fried fish. Sometimes it is enough for two full meals

We ordered take out via their website based on recommendations from this website, as a safe choice. GF items are labeled as such, and I noted on the comments section for my daughters order that we are GF for medical reasons and to please take allergy precautions to avoid cross contamination. The receipt noted allergy and items were packaged separately. Had no issues whatsoever. Food was average but that’s ok (chicken tenders, tater tots and fish n chips). In a land of fried fast food, I was glad to find a place that takes care to label their items as GF and has a dedicated fryer.

This restaurant is celiac friendly. I am very sensitive and I did not get sick. They seem to have a good protocol-the Manager brings out allergy meals and the staff seemed well trained. If only the food was better! The calamari appetizer was quite large and okay. I had the steak tips which were tasteless with a mystery vegetable (maybe kale) and good mashed potatoes. The other people with me were not happy with their meals either.

We went tonight with a party of 15. Everything on the menu was GF besides the pasta dishes, pizza and Korean BBQ sauce. It was amazing that we didn’t have to worry about cross contamination when we ordered apps for the table. Food was delicious. The poutine appetizer was outstanding. We arrived at 5 which was great and most people there were with small children as were we. Highly recommend this place. Family friendly, great food, lots of GF options and casual atmosphere.

I also got a lobster roll without the roll on a bed of lettuce which was fantastic as well. Most come with tater tots. (Only thing I wish was on the menu is French fries). Knowledgeable staff, easy to read menu with many options. We will definitely be back!
