Great experience with a daughter with Celiac Disease. Waiter knew exactly what she could have. The menu was also marked with gluten-free items. The biggest treat, she got her own basket of homemade fresh baked gluten-free bread which was delicious.

Hula Grill was very good and waiter was knowledgeable about gf and cross contamination. As my food came out, they noted that it was gluten free, which was fantastic as it assured me that the waiter noted my food as gf. Overall, great place and had no issues.

The Crab Topped Macadamia Crusted Mahi Mahi was fantastic! Not many options, but tasted good. They brought out Gluten Free bread to start too!

Came here for dinner and it was excellent. Multiple items on the menu to choose from. I ended up getting Mahi Mahi and it was to die for. They also brought me some gluten free bread and dipping sauces! However, I looked at the lunch menu and there’s only about 2 gluten free options on that so I would stick to dinner for this one.

Celiac - dined here often, staff and management is knowledgeable; they have that protocol where the manager talks to the kitchen before and after allergy meals; Opa was cooked to perfection and the hummus and watermelon reddish chips were a nice touch!

Don’t go during Happy Hour. 3:00-6:00. Nothing to eat on the menu was gluten free. I doubled checked with 2 servers. I didn’t find them gluten friendly.

I have a super allergic kid to wheat. Celiac. They took tender gloves to her order and after testing with our Nima sensor it passed with flying colors! I love restaurants that take allergies serious!

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.

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.
