This restaurant doesn’t have a gluten free menu nor does it indicate if items are gluten free. I ordered steamed crab legs, a baked potato, and cole slaw since those items don’t usually contain gluten and none are fried. The crab legs were delicious but I wasn’t a big fan of their cole slaw. I have celiac and didn’t have any reaction to their food so I recommend sticking with their steamed options.

Ordered crabs with corn on the cob and baked potato. The server said that was safe but didn’t know much else about what was/wasn’t GF. Nice deck but overall just ok.

Delicious local crab house. The perfect meal of all you can eat crab and corn on the cob. Most of the sides are fried, but the staff is knowledgeable about the ingredients, willing to check with the chef and point you in the right direction. Other options include lobster tails, surf and turf, nice looking salads and the most incredible bloody Mary you've ever seen in all your life loaded with shrimp and more. Note - check hours before going, they are only open during the season.
