Seperate gluten free menu, mostly things like sandwich with no bread but does highlight what is gluten free. Use too many Cajun spices in fries etc to my liking but didn't get sick.

Overall a good meal. I would not trust that there is no cross contamination. I did not have any reactions, but the server appeared busy when I emphasized the need for my dish to be prepared completely GF. We ordered an appetizer from the GF menu, but it was brought out with pita bread. The server later brought out celery and carrots for me to enjoy with the appetizer but it was after the meal had been delivered. I would eat here again, but hope they take the time to train their servers a bit more on GF items and sensitivities.

The food was very good and they have a Gf menu but they gave me croutons on my salad which I took off. So it isn’t celiac friendly but it is okay if you just have a sensitivity.

I agree with the posts that this place isn’t 100% celiac friendly. I ate at the bar and the bartender was an idiot, luckily a server picking up drinks overheard and had him give me the GF menu. He spoke with me about the menu and also coached the bartender in entering my order (“press gluten-free like 10 times). I had no problems and the scallops were delicious.

I had the Grilled Salmon. It was good. Lots of Gluten free options but this place is NOT Celiac friendly. They do not have designated fryers so though French fries and sweet potato fries are on the menu, those with Celiac, it is not safe for us to eat. I also had the 3 Crab dip appetizer. It comes with celery and carrots instead of pita bread to make it gluten free which is good. The staff was still pretty nice and helpful so it wasn't completely bad. Just be careful and ask plenty of questions if you have Celiac. Not 100% Celiac Friendly

From the gluten free menu my husband and I shared the regular size combo steam pot. There was a large gluten free menu on the table when we got there. There was a large selection on the menu!

Celebrated our 10th anniversary here! My husband is Celiac & they had a fantastic selection of flavorful foods, (including desserts!) for him to choose from! He is very sensitive to ANY gluten & had ZERO issues. Very mindful staff & GREAT food! Will be back!

Has a gluten free menu. Food was good but not outstanding. Ordered from the gf menu and told them I had an allergy. Dinner came out with a roll on the plate. They remade the meal without much fuss.

I am gluten free. HOLY MOLY! GREAT BIG GF MENU with many choices. And they are NOT a salad or a burger without a bun. I got the grouper from the gluten-free menu. And it was covered in apples, peppers and onions with a sprinkling of coconut. Also four big shrimp. This is the kind of gluten-free I could get used to!!! They also have a molten lava chocolate gluten-free dessert. Go here. You'll love it. Fantastic view of the Atlantic Ocean out all the windows or from the deck. Superb!! Update: late March. . . Ordered GF Paella. Beautiful presentation but l had to return it for something else. It was VERY SWEET! The clams, the shrimp, the Rice- all sugary!!! I really think someone in the kitchen goofed and grabbed the wrong spice. However, l had no problem returning for delicious salmon.

Cute place with great view, outside seating available, very friendly and accommodating waiter named Mike, separate gluten free menu with several options, I opted for the crab dip sampler with carrots and celery and the bacon wrapped scallops.My husband are gluten free as well got the seafood steamer pot and all were delicious. We ended our meal with a gluten free chocolate flourless dome with ice cream that was scrumptious as well. I would definitely eat here again!!!!

Great food and a perfect dining spot. Unique atmosphere. I emailed in advance to find out about gluten-free options and they promptly emailed me a GF menu. Even had a crab bisque that was GF!
