Really pleased with my experience. The server actually said the kitchen wasn’t sure about the jambalaya and recommended the cioppino stew instead (also DF). A manager came by to assure me the kitchen was aware of my allergies.

The cioppino was absolutely amazing, and so were the oysters. Loved every minute of my experience here.

Being gluten and dairy free, my options were limited. I went hoping to have the open face crab sandwich on gf bread but cheese is already mixed in to sandwich and the waiter explained that right away. I asked him to ask the chef to let me know what I could have. The waiter came back and said I could have the jambalaya. Then, a little later the manager came to my table and reassured me my food would be safe and they were taking precautions. I had some oysters and the jambalaya and the entire meal was gorgeous and absolutely delicious. I felt safe there and did not have any reactions. Gorgeous view over the water, too. I posted pictures of the food; the jambalaya was full of fish and had very little rice. It was perfect.

On the regular menu, it will have GF on it stating what they can offer as gluten-free. The menu itself is not very big, but the food was very delicious. I had the gluten-free fettucini pasta with crab meat and marinara sauce, the cream sauce is not gluten-free. It is a white tablecloth restaurant so not cheap, though the food is worth the price. I am marking not celiac friendly because they do not have a separate section in the kitchen where the gluten-free dishes are made. Anyone who has more than just a gluten allergy needs to be aware of this.

I ordered gluten-free pasta and that was fine, but not great. They have quite a few seafood options that are gluten-free. I’m giving it four stars because the sorbet options are AMAZING! (Despite only a couple flavors) I did have to send the first one back because the waitress put a cookie in it 🙄

Had a great server who never hesitated to go ask the kitchen about an item being gluten free. The menu is clearly marked with "gf" for many things, but the chef's specials are not. She checked on everything for me and even came back 3 times until I was finally ready to order. Celiac disease and IBS make eating out difficult, but when it's for work, a person has to make do.

There are only 3 gf options for lunch and none of them are crab. Also, the hostess was clearly irritated with my questions. I left hungry, feeling incredibly unwelcome. Finally, they do not have any dedicated equipment or prep space. Not celiac friendly.

Great Sautéed Crabmeat Pasta and Clams. Service is only so so but you can't beat the view. Ask for a table by the window.

I had the pasta with crab meat and cream sauce. It was amazing! In fact, I was actually worried that it wasn't gluten free - that's how yummy it was. They have one of those scary disclaimers on their menu saying they can't guarantee 100% gf, but after grilling the waiter about it, I would say it is still more celiac safe than not!
