I ordered the spicy melt sandwich. It was on gf bread and absolutely delicious! I also had the Tuscan butternut squash soup and the gf brownie with salted caramel sauce. Owner/ chef is gf so very knowledgeable.

Excellent service! The server pointed out the gf items on the menu and also which dishes could be altered to become gf. Food was delicious! Do yourself a favor and try their gf biscuit and short rib appetizer.

I was a bit disappointed at first. After looking at the menu i got very excited they had so many GF options but when i arrived and starting asking questions they don’t have a dedicated fryer so a lot of the menu is gluten friendly and not celiac safe. So that was a bit of a bummer, but after i got over that the food that was celiac safe was delicious! Waiter was very knowledgeable about celiac and able to inform me of my options. Had GF biscuits that were amazing! (Can order just the biscuits!)

Food was eh. On the plus side, I had a great GF beer- Green’s Amber Ale. The salad dressing (rosemary Dijon) was also really good. The Cuban was underwhelming. It was served on Udi’s bread and didn’t really have much flavor. My hubby had the bahn mi (not gf) and it was OK, not amazing. Field pea soup was very good,. Overall, felt safe and didn’t get sick but food wasn’t that good.

This was one of the best restaurants I have been to. All of the food options are amazing and they are very understanding of celiacs. The only thing that isn’t celiac friendly is the fried food as it is not a dedicated fryer. The gluten free desert is also amazing and not the typical options.

I was so excited to try food from The Floridian from my recent trip to St. Augustine and I was a little underwhelmed. We ordered delivery, and the orders were not received accurately which was a bit of a bummer. I tried the N’waffles, and it was good, but not 5 star worthy in my opinion. The biscuits were very good though!

We had the biscuit & belly as an app and it was amazing. Cooked perfectly and a prime piece of meat, not greasy either. The GF biscuits were excellent. Although dense, it was soft and had that buttermilk taste that brings you back to your youth. The bourbon peach, honey, and Moo’s cheese paired fairly nice. Well done, Floridian. For our main, we shared the shrimp tacos. Generous portion and superior taste. The shrimp had a delicious marinade that wasn’t over powered by the pickled watermelon rind, cilantro, red onion, and Datil sauce. Lastly, we had the brownie for dessert. It was moist and flavorful. Definitely would return. Zero negative reaction.

Wow. The reviews are spot on. Awesome place after a disastrous evening at the Columbian. The muffin and belly is outstanding. The Cuban sandwich? Wow. And GF beer!

We will certainly back for the great food, great service and cool atmosphere. Thank you Floridian! You’ve restored our hope for humanity!

Fabulous lunch here. Hannah was very Celiac / gluten intolerant knowledgeable and had excellent recommendations. Owner/Chef is gluten intolerant and the menu and Staff knowledgeability and helpfulness reflect that. GF Bloody Marys, the shrimp ‘n grits was wonderful and taking 2 GF desserts home for later!! Hannah even packed the dessert whipped cream on ice for me. My friend who is not GF loved her Bay Of Pigs sandwich, too. We will definitely be back! My new favorite place.

The Floridian was a wonderful restaurant with knowledgeable staff. I was the only gf eater in my family but everyone thoroughly enjoyed their lunch choices and remarked how they felt like they made better food choices. I had a citrus beet salad and added grilled shrimp and topped it off with a hard cider. We sat outside in an area shaded by a porch and lush vegetation. We will definitely be back!

Best experience! They had so many options not available at other restaurants including gluten free amber ale and several ciders. We enjoyed he biscuits and belly as well as a delicious risotto style meal. They had three different gluten free options for desserts. The salted caramel chocolate brownie was enjoyed by everyone at the table. I am the only gf in the family and no one else noticed a difference. The taste and texture of everything was on point. The outdoor seating area was relaxing and quaint.

My daughter and I ate there for lunch the other day and I wish this place was closer to home! They have gluten-free bread, so their sandwiches can easily be made GF and they even have a gluten-free biscuit!! Biscuits were one of the few things I was *sure* I'd never be able to have again after my celiac diagnosis... but holy cow, the pork belly on the biscuit was amazing and delicious. They list it on small plates, but I had it for my lunch and I was stuffed. Honestly, it was so good, you would never know it was GF. Next time I'm in town, this is definitely on my restaurant list!

My partner and I ate here while on a trip to Jacksonville, and we were blown away by the quality of the food and how careful they were of my celiac! The server was very knowledgeable and quickly pointed out the specials that were and were not celiac-friendly (no GF fryer meant even seemingly GF foods were off-limits), but that did not mean our menu felt limited! We arrived quite hungry and enjoyed many delicious and unusual Southern dishes, all GF - pickled shrimp, pork belly with GF biscuit (one of the best items on the menu for sure!), pulled pork and waffles (amazing - could not tell the waffle was GF, but it was!), and maque choux (similar to a corn and rice risotto - not quite traditional, but amazingly delicious). We were stuffed, but we took home two desserts for later, just because the food was amazing! Great service, amazing food, highly recommend!

If you have celiacs do not eat here!! I had high expectations from the reviews but a horrible experience. I got glutened BAD, my guess was from the server who thought something was GF that wasn’t (salad dressing? The special dessert? ). The menu is clearly marked so I’m not sure what happened but this is the worst glutening I have had in years! Also, I ordered my kids burgers medium and they came with the inside being completely raw. We sent it back but nothing so much as a heartfelt apology and no offer to comp the items. The place is cute and we had high expectations but others be forewarned!
