Our hotel concierge suggested this when we asked for a gluten free restaurant. Wow! As a celiac who is sooo cautious, I was happy to enjoy many of these dishes with the non gluten free guests in my party who all equally loved each one. We had the cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, creamed corn and the Branzino fish. They were each individually flavorful but I'm giving two thumbs up for the Brussels sprouts!! Every dish was delicious and enjoyed by the non celiacs in my group. (They also had ribs which they loved as well). It was nice to feel safe and well fed. The manager came out and chatted with us. From start to finish, it was somewhere I not only loved but wished had a franchise closer to where we lived.

This restaurant had many options for gluten free and the wait staff was really wonderful. One of the servers is celiac and my waiter brought him over to explain the items which were safe for me. They have many grilled and smoked items which are safe. They only use Tamari there, so there are no worries for gluten in soy marinades. They do not have a dedicated fryer, so anything fried is not safe, this includes the chips. My celiac friend brought me some cucumber slices to eat with my own dip instead. The dip was delicious. He mentioned that the cauliflower is normally fried at the end, so make sure if you get that you call that to their attention. I had the salmon and it was good. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, good food, and a huge outdoor patio. I will definitely be back.

Celiac friendly?
