    We ate here for lunch and had a very pleasant meal. My son and I shared the very affordably priced steamed crab plate. I had earlier informed the waitress that we were GF, and she asked if we wanted to leave the butter off the order. Huh? Apparently the staff isn't completely clear of the differences between GF and DF. But as long as you know your limits and are very clear you should have a pleasant meal.

    No gluten free menu but the staff and manager were very knowledgeable and helpful. Manager checks each order marked gf before it is sent out.

    Not a great experience. There is no GF menu, and the waitstaff seemed very uneducated on the topic. Went with some blackened fish (sans butter, as the waitress suggested??) and still felt some reaction later. If you go here, bring something with you.

    If could I'd give it a 0 star! Asked for gf menu, was told by hostess they could accommodate, but did not have gf specific menu and the waitress would help. (Btw, regular menus were filthy.) Told the waitress I was gf and asked for recommendation, said just pick something not fried and get the veggies, without butter. I informed her butter was naturally gf, she just turned and walked away. So rude. I asked about their broiling method and asked if they used bread crumbs, said "did not think so, but there was butter." I again said butter is naturally gf, asked was there something they mixed in butter to make it an issue for me? She asked "what my issue was" again said "gf, you know can't want wheat." She just referred to butter, again. We ended up not eating here since she was SO rude and they (she) clearly did not understand what gf is.

    The staff was very accommodating to my gluten-free allergy. The manager was very nice and also informative about was was at risk for gluten or cross contamination. Most all the staff was extremely friendly and the food was DELICIOUS. If you ever do find yourself in Gulf Shore, I do recommend a visit.
