This place is great! I ordered chicken taco appetizer off the gluten-free menu great taste then the grouper sandwich was very good. So far no problems I told our waitress that I have a gluten allergy so please let the kitchen know this she was knowledgeable. This is a very busy place go early.. Good food but service was a bit slow.

Very knowledgeable about gluten free. Most of the menu was gluten free and marked well, and they also have a gluten free menu. They have a separate area to prepare and cook the food. Food was very good and good variety.

Great experience! They provide a gluten-free menu that has a great selection. If you're not into rum, though, the choices for adult beverages are limited. We did not get dessert, so I don't know of there are gluten-free choices. We have the tostadas for an appetizer, and my husband and I both thought they were amazing. We are usually disappointed with our food, so that's saying a lot. For the main meal, I ordered seafood pielle. Again, amazing! My husband ordered the mahi mahi (has gluten), and it was okay. Too heavy on the teriyaki sauce. If we lived close to a Doc Ford's, we would be regulars. I'm ridiculously sensitive to gluten , and no reaction.

Great experience! They had a GF menu and the waitress was well informed on gluten free for allergies. Got the lobster roll on a gluten free bun which was delicious. My non-GF family also enjoyed their food so it was a hit with the whole family.

Great service! Huge GF menu with lots of options! Had the chicken tostados, and the Yucatán shrimp tacos. All so good! Server was awesome and she was very friendly! Great setting outside on the water, had heaters going because it was chilly and it was perfect!

Great service and good food. As soon as I mentioned I had food allergies and celiac the waiter got their notepad out and wanted to know what they all were before I even looked at the menu. Lots of gluten free options and accommodated multiple allergies.

Wow this is a great place. I like this one better than one at the pier. Right in the water at Bay pines jungle Prada area. Wonderful selection gluten free foods gluten-free flat breads and smoked chicken. Very accommodating and will customize your dish and have great Gluten Free options. Heather was great at making sure all was safe.

Have been to the location at the st. Pete pier many times and while the food was good and safe, the staff was terrible the last 4 trips. We tried this location yesterday and it was fantastic! The waitress checked for us and they have a dedicated fryer so we had the shrimp ceviche and chips. Delicious , and I have not gotten sick :) Same GF menu as the pier and much better service.

I was a little disappointed with the burger I ordered. The roll was either microwaved to death or sat under the warming lights way too long! It was dry and hard. Burger itself was excellent. Ate at the St. Pete Pier one twice and had their steak sandwich which was excellent. Same roll but roll was very tasty and not dried out. I don’t believe they have a separate fryer for French fries. I have celiac and had no reaction.

Great menu with lots of options. The do have a gf fryer guy no fries because they are precoated in flour. The Tortilla chips are safe for Cobb salad. Love the shrimp and grits, the soup is also good! Love their buns as well! I even buy a few and freeze and home. Staff is knowledgeable as well.

Excellent food and service. The manager cody is Celiac aware and is helpful with info on cross contamination. There is an extensive gluten free menu, but i was warned the flat bread and other items share the same connection oven. Just verify your server.

They have an extensive GF menu from flatbreads to tostados! Not your usual, 4 salads and a couple of chicken dishes and a couple of meat dishes. I was shocked to the point that I couldn’t decide what to order!😄 we were lucky to have an incredibly knowledgeable server who pointed out a mistake in the menu knew where there was some cross contamination. Natalie is a gem!
