Had a nice little date night on the second floor balcony. However… items that were marked on the menu as “AGF” (available gluten free) the sever informed me that the fries were in fact cooked in a common fryer and therefore not gluten free as advertised. The food was good but somewhat limited in gf options.

We tried this place out after reading the feedback here. I ate the mahi-mahi tacos, which were tasty. I was hesitant about it though, I think the menu is misleading in some ways. For example, the GF corndog is served with beer mustard (not GF) and fries, and both corndog and fries are cooked in shared oil fryer, not a dedicated fryer. So not GF! I am a celiac and would have been sick. I’m glad I asked.

Perfection! Atmosphere was wonderful. Fries are fried in shared oil, but because we got there when they open the chef offered to make ours and new oil. The mahi-mahi tacos for everything the reviews say they are the Steak my daughter got was really good. And the cocktails are to die for. And we had dessert! The creme brûlée was delicious

Food and service is excellent. Nice atmosphere. GF items marked on menu. I also avoid eggs and dairy, for which they were accommodating. I’ve eaten there several times without issue. One of my favorite places on the island.

My wife has celiac, did not experience any cross contamination, weird as it sounds but they have a gluten free corndog that was awesome. We also had the red snapper and salmon which was also great, service was good

I ordered mahi-mahi tacos and they were the best I'd ever eaten! We also have allergies to nuts and the staff was fabulous with our allergies, talking with the kitchen and offering substitutions. The service was great, and our party of seven was seated in the private room without a reservation for brunch on a Saturday. Excellent experience - we didn't feel rushed at all.

Mahi Mahi tacos were OUTSTANDING! Server was familiar with cross contamination, which was refreshing. They clearly have plenty of GF diners at their restaurant. Sensitive celiac and I had no issues whatsoever. Lots of history and very cool decor throughout the restaurant.

They had specific menu items marked GF on the main menu and were great at explaining how to make a non-GF dish GF so my celiac daughter and I could share!

One kids' menu option, several other dishes could be modified though. Lots of GF options on main menu as well as option to modify.

Great service!! Server was super sweet with our kids and really engaged them. My 5 year old asked a question about the restaurant building and the server gave her a history tidbit that she found really interesting! (*Ask why the fireplace that used to be in the bathroom hallway is now gone!)

Lots of gf options clearly marked on the menu, and the chef is so awesome he even modifies something you like to make it gf. I'm a very sensitive celiac and didn't have any problems here, food even tested safe with Nima. Food was absolutely delicious! Staff was super friendly and understanding of my food restrictions and made me feel comfortable.

Lots of GF options and they even modified a menu item for me. Can do lettuce instead of buns for burgers and tacos. Incredibly friendly staff.

Was told by someone that is not GF that it was a really good meal. Went by later. They have GF listed on certain items. A couple of salads, the steak, and omelets. There could be more but was not what my kids were looking for at the time. Probably not Celiac friendly, but at least they list GF.
