Had a great experience here. Very knowledgeable about Celiac and Gluten Free. All gluten free food is made in a separate area and they have incredible pizza! Didn’t get sick and the view is incredible. Will definitely be back!

I told the waitress I was gluten intolerant and was told while they didn't have a gluten free menu they did have bread,rolls and even pizza. I ordered a seared haddock sandwich on a gluten free roll. When the waitress brought it the fish appeared to be coated in flour. She went back to the kitchen to speak to the cook who informed her yes it was indeed white flour,but only a little so the fish didn't fall apart.They were willing to bake fish so it didn't have flour but the amount of time it took for her to get back to me to tell me this was ridiculous. My companions had already finished their meal. I did not eat for fear of the cross contamination. Clearly the cook and staff do not understand celiac or gluten intolerance. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We visited off season in mid November so it was pretty dead. The menu and online states they have a gluten free menu, but when we asked we were told they don't have one but have gluten free buns, wraps, and pizza "so pretty much anything can be made gluten free" when I asked if they had a dedicated fryer the waitress had no idea what I meant and said yes we fry only the fries in one basket and fish and everything else in another. I am mildly gluten sensitive so I did get fries, they absolutely we fried with other fried food because there were chunks of fried bits in my pile of fries. I got the grilled chicken sandwich, the gluten free bun was poor quality and fell apart almost immediately. The sandwich was ok, the chicken tasted cheap, no flavor and kind of chewy. The fries were freshly made and very hot. Boyfriend had no allergies and said his pork sandwich was good and fries and onions were ok - nothing spectacular but not bad. Even given the limited options in the area, I wouldn't go back. Two stars because lunch was ok and staff was friendly enough, also reasonable priced.

The tag line is completely wrong. No breads or buns. Yes they have tortilla chips. I was told "We can do the baked haddock gluten free, the scallops, and the hamburger without a bun".
