They had a gluten free menu but our waiter was not knowledgeable about the menu in general. He told me the vodka was not gluten free but the manager said it was. I am also dairy free and he couldn’t tell me what had dairy in it and wouldn’t swallow his pride to go ask someone who could. I think it would have been fine if we had a different server.
The staff gave me a gluten free menu, which it was limited but there were still some options. I ordered the Parmesan Maui Maui, with corn and French fries and had no reaction. I also ate their crab dip without the crackers and just a fork. I also had no reaction.
I informed the staff right when I got there that I have celiac and cannot have any gluten or I get extremely sick. The lady at the register wasn’t sure what i could have but went and grabbed someone who did! She suggested salads and anything steamed. Which is great because all I wanted was the steamed snow crab legs! I got spicy, assured they use a gluten free seasoning, and they were amazing! I did not get sick at all. Very happy with my experience there.
I ordered a lunch salad with grilled fish, from the waitress who had retrieved a gf menu at my request. It arrived, looking beautiful and I dug in to it. After a few bites I found that the fish was resting atop a bed of croutons! A single “sorry” was the only response, and I waited for my replacement dish as my companions dined. Beware of this place.
I got bronzed triple tail on a garden salad with balsamic dressing. My plate was served separate from the group with an "allergy" marker by a gloved server. I couldn't have felt more confident in their ability. I am more sensitive to cross-contamination than any one I know and anyone THEY know. My meal was tasty and I did not get sick. The gluten-free menu had other options with sauces that looked enticing. But this was my first experience...so I kept it simple. I would love to go back and try their other entrees and sides.
The food was really good. They had a GF menu and plenty to pick from. My meal came out on a separate serving platter than the others and was marked with an allergy stick for easy identification. And I didn't get the tiniest bit sick from the meal. I would definitely go back.
My extended family was vacationing in Destin for the week. Of the 12 of us, 3 of us eat gluten-free (one diagnosed celiac; two in the process of being diagnosed). After having many sub-par meals, I am happy to say that we loved Dewey Destin's. They had a good sized gluten free menu, and the wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful. We liked it so much that we ate here twice. The food quality, both gluten-free and "regular", got rave reviews across the board. The atmosphere was casual and we loved the harbor view.
