The menu is clearly marked GF, but the waiter did not inspire confidence. I ordered GF veggie sushi roll and asked for GF soy sauce. The waiter was confused and brought me low sodium soy sauce. After I explained that it wasn’t GF, he eventually brought packets of tamari. The food was ok and I didn’t get sick. The view of the water was beautiful and I enjoyed the ambiance.

Ehhhh. Not the best, had to remake my burger because they put non gf fries in the container. The burger was good, but I would rather get one from Wendy’s.

Just ate at this place tonight. The staff was nice and good about making substitutions. That being said, there were items on the menu listed as gluten free that weren’t actually gluten free. I ordered the salmon with the mango teriyaki sauce on the side, as there was a chance that the teriyaki could have non-gluten free soy sauce. They brought out the salmon with no sauce on the side and fries. I asked about both and while they said the salmon was cooked without the sauce, the fries weren’t gluten free, so they switched it out with a side salad. Our server also mentioned milk to my celiac sister while she was ordering, so I’m not quite sure that they knew what gf actually meant…also there weren’t many options aside from some appetizers and two entrees. No gluten free pasta, bread or corn tortillas. My sister ended up getting the sushi with a few different substitutions. Wouldn’t recommend for someone like me who is super sensitive. Just hoping I feel okay later 😳

I've eaten here many times before I had cd and, while happy to go back, I checked them out with more scrutiny. They do list a few items on the menu as gf such as ribs and a gf pasta. I opted for fish sautéed in a pan over a salad. Server was very helpful but had to tell the cook staff exactly how she wanted the order prepared. In other words, I don't think that the cook staff is particularly trained in preparation for those with cd. I had no issues. Order carefully here. Might be helpful to eat at the inside bar so you can overhear how the server interacts with the cook staff.

We were led completely astray by the 5/11/16 review which was not accurate. Maybe they were at a different place? This place did not have gluten free bread of any kind. The waiter was friendly but I would not consider this restaurant celiac friendly.

Limited GF menu. The burger just came without a bun and it was alright. I found a hair on my plate so the kitchen insisted they make a whole new burger and they took it off of my bill. Really good service. Awesome atmosphere with the exception of the fumes from the boat gas station next door that came through and filled the place at one point. Luckily there was a bar area separate that had the windows closed. Very accommodating staff.

The absolute BEST meal I have had since I went gluten free several months ago. They have gluten free options for every type of bread - pitas, sandwich bread, pizza crust, burger buns, you name it. I was so excited to have my first gluten free pita (haven't been able to find them anywhere else), and the turkey pita was delicious.

Great food. Menu offered gluten free options and our server was happy to find out if a dish could be prepared with the gluten-free pasta mentioned elsewhere on the menu. I had Lobster Mac'n'cheese and it was delicious.
