    Excellent food and whilst they don't have gluten free bread, they provide a gluten free bun! Great options for celiacs.

    Beware! Wait staff and chef are unaware of foods with gluten! They even add things into meals that aren't listed on the menu which have gluten in them. My wife ordered a salad and was very clear about her gluten allergies. When the meal came, her salad was covered with farro...a food composed of wheat! Even after they "fixed" it, there were still traces of farro in the salad, which says it does not have a dedicated area in the kitchen for GF foods. Salad wasn't tasty, either. A disappointment. Hours are odd, too...dining room closes at 2:00p, so we could only order off of Happy Hour menu at 2:05p?...on a Saturday right on the beach.

    Wonderful GF burger. I'm sure the fries were cooked in a non-GF fryer (I was asked if crosss-contamination was a problem and I said no) but the GF buns here are FABULOUS. Add to that a gorgeous view, attentive wait staff and live music ..... winning combo

    Horrible. The only gluten free options on the menu are beets and oysters. I even called ahead. The manager came out and offered to make a burger and even after explicit instruction it came out with French fries ( not GF) and blue cheese ( also not gluten free). They remade it and by the time it was served my whole party had finished eating.

    Gluten free items clearly marked on the menu. Good selection. They take it very seriously here. The manager or chef brings out your food to make sure there is no cross contamination. The ahi tuna sashimi is to die for. Normally I'm not excited about creme brûlée because it's a typical GF dessert, but this was out of this world and served in a fresh half pineapple!

    Went for breakfast, not much on menu but did have it marked GF. Had fruit platter and 2 eggs over easy, rice, and sausage. It was really good. They said the breakfast potatoes were not GF because of shared fryer. I ate 5 times this week for breakfast and was happy every time, mostly had eggs, rice, Portuguese sausage and pineapple but had a BLT with a egg on a GF bun one morning and it was good.

    A few gf selections as their entire menu is fairly limited. The pan seared fish was good but expensive.

    Offer a GF menu, but dish included corn chips. It wasn't until I asked if they were home made that further question revealed they are not done in a dedicated fryer. Rest of meal was good but they seem to rely on customer analysis of offerings.

    Small-ish GF menu but so delicious. Fresh, local food. Excellent flavors. Great live music. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Well worth coming here. too full to try it... But they actually have GF tiramisu!!
