Read the reviews about GF fried shrimp and was looking forward to that rare treat…we have been told none of the fried food is GF, and our server warned us their GF menu was outdated.

I did a lot of research about gluten free restaurants in NOLA, and this is at the top of my list. Was amazing to have fried seafood again! Not sure if it’s contaminated though.

Yum!  Fried shrimp in GF corn batter and a dedicated fryer.  It was nice to eat like a “normal” person.  The bar staff was very knowledgeable!
gluten free fried shrimp and fries. Very good. Thinking of going back and having the catfish.

Great food. Had the fried catfish and fried shimp. Both were excellent. The meal was preceded by potatoes that were boiled in the seasonings used for the seafood boils. Drinks were also excellent and staff was friendly.

I am confused, since SOME people said they had fried food here, yet when I emailed and asked in person, I was told ONLY boiled seafood and the salads were safe options for me (2020)

Pretty good food overall

They have a gluten free menu and will cook in olive oil. The only problem for me was the sides since I am also allergic to soy and canola. The soft shell crabs were very good and well seasoned.

Fried shrimp delivered by someone other than our waiter - we asked if it was GF - she just shrugged! Nice GF menu but if the staff isn’t aware of the risk we take to eat out then not worth going back.

Waiter was extremely knowledgeable about gf items. I had the amazing fried shrimp platter. The portion size was huge and it was so awesome to have fried food. The waiter wasn’t sure if the potatoes were gluten-free but after reading other reviews I decided to eat them. No problem!

Note: This is for the Garden district location! I wouldnt go back here. The waitor was clueless about gluten. No gluten free menu. Ordered the bbq shrimp to share with my girlfriend who eats gluten, so we asked for the bread on the side. When the food comes, the bread is right in the middle of the food. The waitor didn’t even understand the issue with that. Besides the food, the lokale has zero of the original Deanies charm! Go to the one on lake ave for the right experience. This locations seems to be run by kids who dont really care about food. The friend shrimp was delicious!

We did not have a good experience. I think it was mostly a brand new uninformed waitress. We asked about the dedicated fryer multiple times then she recommended I eat broiled shrimp instead of fried. She left and subbed a new server in halfways through service and never informed him of our allergies. Wish I could trust I wouldn't get contaminated.

I am GF and saw Deanie’s had a dedicated fryer and they did oysters, catfish, and shrimp fried in a yellow corn batter. It was absolutely amazing! The catfish wasn’t too fishy and that and shrimp were so tender. The staff was over-the-top knowledgeable, even proud, of the fact that they had a dedicated fryer. Haven’t had fried shrimp or catfish in almost 30 years!

No GF menu when asked , but Super knowledgeable staff. All the fried seafood is made gluten free! Had the fried shrimp and catfish combo. Soups, onion rings and anything stuffed is not GF. Some of the best fried catfish I have had in a very long time. Will definitely be back

Had a great experience eating here. There is a gluten free menu so be sure to ask for it. My husband had the grilled shrimp dinner (GF without the bread) and it was very tasty but I ordered the fried shrimp which comes with fries and would recommend it to anyone sensitive to shared fryers who miss eating this kind of food. It’s totally safe and delicious. I felt great the next day. What a treat. Huge portions. I could not eat it all and we came hungry. The crawfish boil potatoes to start were a bonus.

So good! Dedicated GF menu. I was skeptical because they said all of their fried seafood was gluten free. Well it must be, because I didn’t get sick! I had the combo platter with gluten free fried shrimp, oysters, and catfish. Also got the charbroiled and bbq oysters (without the French bread). They bring boiled potatoes instead of bread before your meal!

My wife got to eat fried shrimp and fried catfish. We both teared up while she was eating it. They are cornmeal breaded and have a separate fryer. The staff was unaware of gluten free items, but the manager knows. They have gf menu online but not in the restaurant.

I was told the last time I was here that they had a dedicated fryer but today found out they use the same fryer for the seafood coated with GF flour and regular flour. So disappointed. I felt like our server did not go out of her way to accommodate me. Unfortunate.

My wife and I ate at Deanie's tonight. They have a gf menu on their website and the waiter was knowledgeable about how food was prepared and what was gf. The BBQ shrimp was amazing! Order it with rice instead of bread to soak up all that amazing sauce. Go early if you don't want to wait an hour. But well worth the wait.

Bartender was super confused about what was gf. He thought corn flour wasn't gf. Apparently most seafood is gf, but not the crab claws for an appetizer? Couldn't really get to the bottom of what was safe. I did have a reaction so I won't go back. For safe gf fried seafood go to Cassamento's.
