Not a ton of GF options but can attest their blackened shrimp country low boil salad was phenomenal! They use a homemade creole ranch. I’m not too big on salads but this one is out of this world!

I ordered grilled shrimp and scallops. They were well prepared and I had no problems. My wife, on the other hand is not celiac and ordered fried flounder and shrimp. They seriously overcooked her food in old oil. It was terrible. The server knew how bad it looked when she brought it out. My wife didn’t want to send it back because it took so long to be served. The waiter have us half off on her entree but she left hungry. I’ll have a very hard time ever getting her to go back there.

Items are marked gluten free on the menu. Limited choices but a variety. My waitress was knowledgeable about the salad dressings I asked for and knew exactly which were gluten free, she also explained the precautions in separating things on the grill. Fun waterfront view

waitress was super nice and answered all questions, I got GF labeled options and ate the meal, when I got to the bottom of my bowl of shrimp, there was a piece of pasta. Will see if I get sick but after being reassured so many times about the safety I’m a little upset.

Gluten free items are marked on menu but BEWARE FRYER IS NOT GLUTEN FREE. I got the shrimp cocktail which was 6 shrimp, and I got the stuffed shrimp bacon wrapped maple dish with mashed potatoes and green beans. It was really good!

Waiter brought out a manager to confirm celiac protocols and answer menu questions. They seared the seafood in a separate, clean pan. Salads have a prep station completely separate from the rest of the food.

Waiter was knowledgeable and verified a few things with the kitchen about some questions I had. I had blackened fish (it was a special for the day, some type of white fish), mashed potatoes and broccoli. The fish portion was small especially for $30 but it was very good. I would tell them to back off of the seasoning some next time because it was very spicy. But still so yummy. They brought out my plate with grits instead of mashed potatoes and the waiter had to go back and check to see if the grits were gluten free and they were. They also brought out my mashed potatoes since I had originally ordered them. The grits were “ok”. Definitely a different consistency than I am used to. The mashed potatoes and broccoli were excellent. The Only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is the value for the portion for the special that day.

Menu is marked with GF items but when it came out, even after making sure we said GF, the 2 burgers ordered had fried onions on them and my food had bits of fried batter of some kind in the bottom of the plate.

Items marked clearly on menu, staff aware of sides that are safe. No dedicated fryer, but my favorite food of the week. My food was brought out separate and marked for Celiac.
