Stopped here last minute for lunch on our way to rehoboth. Staff was very knowledgeable. So many options available on the menu to choose from. Decided on the crab cakes and those were absolutely DELICIOUS! I am celiac and did not get sick from eating here. Would definitely come back again if we are ever in town.
GF CRAB CAKES ARE AMAZING!! Wife has severe gluten intolerance so we have to be extremely careful where and what she eats. The crab cakes were large and two with unlimited vegetables made it difficult for her to finish. Stuffed shrimps were great as well. A bit pricey but worth it.
My wife (who is celiacs and has an extreme gluten sensitivity) and I read reviews for this place and decided to have dinner here while on vacation. We read the menu and everything sounded amazing. We were surprised to see crab cakes since normally they are not GF. Waitress was very knowledgeable and aware of GF and celiacs. We had a huge smorgasbord of the sampler, stuffed shrimp and crab legs. Everything was AMAZING and best of all no sickness or issues later in the evening. Dine with confidence and enjoy!
Main menu clearly marked for gluten free with many choices but let your server know GF anyway. There is a little misprint in the menu - some combinations that include crab imperial are marked GF but the Crab Imperial item itself is not marked - our waitress checked with the chef and it is a misprint - the crab imperial IS GF - my husband ordered a combination with it and had no problem - you should verify for yourself. Many choices of sides all of which seem to be GF although not marked as explicitly as the rest of the menu - be sure to verify with your server. The food is good but not exotic and the setting on the inlet is fun - not as many boats going thru in October as in the summer. They take reservations but check the hours - they typically close at 9 PM even in the summer.
Loved this place! Lots of GF options. A note - items labeled on the menu as GF still require you to let your server know you need it that way. For instance, the crab cakes were (surprisingly) labeled GF and when I asked he server, she said, sure - we can make them that way - but you just need to let me know. That's not clear initially, so keep it in mind. That being said, the aforementioned crab cakes were quite yummy and the unlimited sides a bonus!
Server acted like she understood, but again I left feeling unwell. I had the crab cakes and mussels. Over the next week my DH started acting up and I had horrible muscle pain and fatigue. This was the only spot we went to in that time so I think it must have been cross contamination.
There are 3 steamed shellfish GF options and a soup on the menu. No idea why another reviewer called it extensive. Server tried but was confused. Luckily he put my tuna order in no marinade because I was concerned about spice level. He had no idea soy sauce contained gluten and it wasn't listed as an ingredient (tuna not GF but they said they could modify. No dedicated fryer so no fries for the cd child. Good food but no more GF than any other restaurant except the steamed shellfish.
Our server (Jessica) was understanding of our Celiac son's need and went above n beyond most to accommodate us. Was so good we went back a 2nd nite. Son ordered off kids n regular menu. A little on the pricy side but seemed safe for celiacs as our son has shown no after affects. Would go back again if we come back to oc, md.
The menu was clearly marked with so many gluten free options, it was delicious too. The only items that weren't marked were the sides and the waitress was able to tell me which of the sides were gluten free off the top of her head. We will definitely be going back the next time we're in town.
