We went here while on vacation. The waitress wasn’t certain about whether or not the fries were fried in a separate fryer, but she confirmed with the kitchen. I’m vegan, so I had a house salad [with oil and vinegar, without any bacon, eggs, etc.], french fries, and green beans. It wouldn’t be my first pick for gf+vegan, but the family wanted seafood and this was the closest/safest option. My mom (gf) really enjoyed the crab cakes! Great location, too, with beautiful sunset views.

Loved the GF crab cakes (was surprised by the mustard based sauce, but it was good), green beans, and creamy potatoes. Probably the best meal I had on vacation! Did not get sick!

I followed the advice of reviews on this site, came here, and ordered crab cakes. Along with gluten free fries and green beans, it was a delicious meal. I gave a serious and terrible reaction to gluten. I was fine after eating here!

I have celiac and am very sensitive, but I had a wonderful dinner here and felt great! I haven’t had crab cakes in years and they were amazing! The creamed spinach was fabulous too.

I ordered the gf crab cakes and mashed potatoes, and it was delicious!!! The other members of my party got non-GF food and thought theirs were great too! I called ahead of time and asked a few questions, and they were really friendly and knowledgeable so I felt very comfortable ordering takeout here.

Food and service were excellent! We had the oyster Rockefeller and peeled shrimp for appetizers (both GF and delicious!) . I ordered the crab cake dinner with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. It was all so good! Waitress was knowledgeable but did confirm with chef the oysters and spinach were GF. Staff were all masked correctly and all customers minus one party wore masks when up from table.

I have Celiac and get so very sick with the slightest cross contamination. That said, I had zero issues after eating some amazing crab cakes with a veggie side dish!! I get so nervous eating out but this place was a home run!

The crab cakes really are GF! I called ahead and spoke to the chef and learned that he has a child with celiac. Great service, lovely atmosphere, dining room faces the marshes/waterway so it is beautiful at sunset. Husband’s meal was also tasty. We will return one more time before vacation ends. Check out their early evening dinner menu for great prices..

Food was solidly mediocre for the price, but the service was wonderful. Our server, Blake K, was knowlegable about gluten and gave me a gf menu. He was very attentive to our table but not bothersome- skilled enough service that I felt like he would catch kitchen mistakes. The broiled fish and shrimp were pretty dry, but nothing was terrible.

Great service! I wanted a Bloody Mary and without being asked they looked up online whether the mixer was GF or not. Since it was not they improvised with tomato juice, horse radish and Lea and Perrin Worcester Sauce. Fries are GF. Seafood is very fresh. Great portions. Beautiful views of the marsh. Would definitely recommend it!

For the price of the meal, it should have been much better. My filot mignon was charred on one side, green beans were mush, and no gf desserts. View was nice, though.

When there was a question as to whether or not the ketchup was gluten free, our waiter went and found the big box it came in and brought it out to the table so we could read the ingredients together. Food was excellent and tasted like it had been swimming an hour ago (it probably had been). A bit pricey but worth every penny.

They do offer a gluten free menu and food and service are outstanding. The general manager Jeff is very knowledgeable on what celiac is. He visited the table twice to discuss food choices and preparation and again to make sure everything was delicious. They have a designated fryer for fries which made the meal!!! We will definitely be back.

Waiter was VERY accommodating when we sat outside....but the sun came out and the temp spiked. We asked for an indoor table and he made it happen. My wife is GF and ordered the salmon portobello, but was unimpressed for the price. I ordered the Grouper Francaise, but again was unimpressed. The grouper was greasy and lacked flavor. Service was NOT the issue here and they are GF accommodating with a full page menu available upon request.

Fantastic experience. The manager visited the table (twice) and told us his daughter had Celiac disease and he made the GF menu himself. I had a small salad, blackened tilapia, green beans and steak fries. The fries are made in a dedicated fryer, the dressings are made in house, and the spices are all single ingredient. The food was delicious and the staff was so friendly. I will be going back!
