The waitress was very knowledgeable which was great but they have a lot fewer options than it seems when looking at their menu online. I wish they would just mark what could and couldn't be made GF instead of making such a general statement... Either way, the fish was good but I couldn't have any sides because even the fries are covered in batter and the fryers are not safe.

Beach diner, so while not the most amazing food ever I was really grateful they take a lot of care. The server told me there is a separate toaster for GF bread and I had the option to pan fry anything they breaded in GF flour. I had their clam chowder along with calamari and was happy to have an old school place at the coast where I didn't get sick and could indulge in some comfort foods (they do warn about the possibility of cross contamination so leaving this as "not sure".)

I ate a bowl of clam chowder. My fiance, who isn’t celiac but still eats gluten free. Ate lobster tail and fries. Now the fries do have a flour coating that isn’t celiac safe. But over all food was great! They even had GF toast to go with the chowder! The waitress was super nice and knew all about cross contamination. It’s not an ACTUAL GF menu. Just a separate paper that says almost anything can be made GF. While ordering my fiancé said he wanted the fries and she said they weren’t safe due to CC. That doesn’t effect him so he was fine. Still awesome that she told us. Loved it and would go again.

Our experience here was great! Our server was very helpful and informative. The menu states you need to ask about their gluten free options and there are several! The first night we had fish and chips (sweet potato fries) and the second night we had clam chowder. I’m celiac and had no adverse reactions. Will definitely go back!

I was looking forward to dining at this restaurant in Long Beach, Wa, due to an online menu that offered gluten free options. However, once I got to the restaurant and saw the menu there was no mention ( on the menu) of gluten-free options. I asked both the hostess and server what gluten-free options they offered and was told, “clam chowder and a roll”. My server, although an excellent waitress for the rest of our party, glossed over my options and was not helpful at all. If you are looking for gluten-free options Doogers in Long Beach is not a viable option. Your options are very limited and the staff is not very helpful.

Our son was diagnosed with Celiac disease in May. We haven't eaten out much since. We were camping on the coast and went out for a birthday dinner. Our waitress Alix was very knowledgeable about Celiac and what we needed for our son. She made our dinner out stress free! She is a huge asset to your restaurant. Because of her we will be back to enjoy another meal. Thank you Alix! Came back again 2019. Still knowledgeable staff. Will continue to come here. Dylan our waiter was excellent!

I was so thrilled to find out that they had Gluten Free clam chowder!!! I ordered some to go with a salad and it was good. A little runny but I kind of expected that, great flavor though. I was just really excited to finally get to order clam chowder from a restaurant and not get sick!!! They gave me tons of saltines and oyster crackers in the bag which I thought was so silly since I told them I had celiac. Thank you Doogers, you made my day!

Staff assured me the sautéed scallops would be gluten-free but as a person with celiac and a Nima Sensor I tested and it was positive for gluten! Server was very nice to exchange for a bay shrimp salad with oil and vinegar dressing which I assumed would be safe so I foolishly didn’t test and now I’m seriously bloated and am sure I’ve been glutened!!

This place is disappointing. They are conscious of gluten allergies... but I could have had a better meal at Denny’s. I paid $30-40 on a steak and scallops that I barely touched. Overpriced and flavorless.

Gluten free chowder was great. Had fried fish which was a treat. As a sensitive celiac, I was happy I did well afterwards. I was glad we went during a slow time of the day because other times we walked by during the week it was packed. I feel it’s safer to go to any restaurant when I’m making special requests during their less-busy hours.

What a wonderful experience for a GF person - to be able to walk into a restaurant and order clam chowder which was so delicious and then top it off with halibut fish which was pan sauteed with a light coating of corn flour - so good. In fact the whole experience was great starting with a great waitress who knew which items were GF and helpful to us when she split the order on 2 plates without asking her to do that. Both my wife and I left after this lunch and thought how fresh the food tasted - just enough to fill you up and for a very reasonable price.

Server was very accommodating and knowledgeable, even asking chef to confirm that both french fries contained gluten. Clam chowder is wonderful...disregard Google reviews...photo on this site is accurate! GF fish and chips were a little disappointing due to very light batter...pan fried. Multigrain GF bread with chowder was very tasty...brand is Franz.

Waitress was super knowledgable, accommodating, and informed about gluten free needs. Even went as far to say that tarter sauce had 2% questionable ingredients so they don't recommend eating it if gluten free. The clam chowder was super good!! Thinner than most but I actually enjoyed that more. The seafood combo plate I ordered was made in a dedicated gluten free pan per the waitress. Seafood was good, light breading was ok, and veggies were subpar. 4 stars due to clam chowder and great waitress. Next time, I would just get a bowl of clam chowder and a salad with their gluten free dressing.

We ate at Dooger's yesterday. The Clam Chowder is great!!! The waiter said, "It's been gluten free for 34 years and people have just recently started asking if it was GF." I also had the Fish and Chips with steamed veggies instead of fries because the fryer isn't a dedicated fryer. See photos. They also have a restaurant in Warrenton, OR, which is near Astoria.

They were able to do pretty much anything gluten and dairy free. I had breaded Calamari w/ a baked potato and my friend had a grilled white fish with a side of steamed veggies. We are both GF. I loved my meal! My friend said hers was only so-so (I'm guessing because the steam veggies were previously frozen). I will definitely stop there again on my next trip to Seaside~

The clam chowder is delicious and gluten free and a lot of the menu items that are fried can be coated in gluten free flour and pan fried. Only thing I couldn’t order was fries as there is no dedicated fryer. There is also several dessert items that are also made gluten. Overall tasty food and our server was very knowledgeable about what can be made gluten free.

we were greeted so warmly! The overall atmosphere and knowledge of gluten free is good. The dialogue we had with our waitress showed she understood. The clam chowder was excellent and gluten free. The pan fried fish was a good attempt but in my opinion needed to be fried longer for more crispness. I salted and salted it to get a small amount of flavor. It seems they’ve gotten past the gf hurdle but haven’t quite finished to excellence. Adding just a few seasonings and keeping the fish in the pan until it’s crisp would have been so much better! She did warn me that it was pan fried in olive oil and no seasoning. So, I knew ahead of time. Perhaps the tarter sauce would have helped add flavor, but I don’t love tarter sauce. The regular fries contained wheat which the waitress told us about. But since we aren’t celiac, we went with the sweet potato fries. (Fried with gluten) They lacked flavor too. 😩. Hubs had the fish and chips that wasn’t gluten free and loved it btw. And bonus points for adding gluten free bread to our plates. (And letting us know that it was gf). :).

Very disappointed that they say they have gluten free menu. Server was not educated and thought dairy was gluten. we asked if the fries were gluten free and she said yes then brought out clearly beaded fries and was confrontational when I pointed it out. 1 min later she returned to table and said she thought she may have been mistaken. Luckily we have been doing this for years and know what is what. You are taking your chances here, be very careful this isn't just cross contamination.

Really disappointed. Website claims they can make most menu items gf but have no gf buns/bread. I was not offered gf menu or suggestions other than chowder. Server nice but clueless. Didn't bring the potato chips that were supposed to come with my bunless burger, which was mediocre at best. I won't be hurrying back anytime soon.

My daughter has Celiac and we have been coming to Doogers for years. We were excited on our most recent visit to find that now she can get her fish breaded in rice flour instead of just sauteed like in the past. Doogers has always used clean and seperate pans to cook her food, and while she knows there is always the possibility of contamination, she has not had any reactions. Doogers may not be truly gourmet; but is usually consistent and good. Our favorite is the clam chowder which is gf. Its creamy, buttery, thin and focuses on the clams as the main event. The minute we arrive in town she asks to go to Doogers!
