I have celiac and was on vacation in gulf shores with my husband and son. We are here tonight and with in two hours I vomited up my so called Gluten free supper... it was horrible. I missed out on the rest of the night with our son. I do not recommend this place if you have celiac.. they had a gluten free menu.. but it must had been for looks.

Ordered the buffalo chicken sandwich gluten free with fries. The first sandwich that came out was on a regular bun, when approached with the issue the waitress said that was the gf bun. They were out of fries and when my new sandwich (on a gf bun) came out, there was absolutely no buffalo. decent for a grilled chicken sandwich. families food was mediocre at best.

Ordered a burger on a GF bun and it was switched with my son’s burger. I had to ask if my bun was gluten free because it didn’t look like it was. Manager and waitress were both unsure if it was the gluten free bun and had to “go check.” Of course it was not GF.

Went to this little gem on our last night. They were great to work with. They have a gf menu, nothing is fried, and they were very careful. Waitress took my allergies and my order and talked to the chef. I highly recommend the No Stir Stir Fry. Corn is one of my allergies and they came back to me saying the sauce has corn syrup and they were trying to come up with a substitute sauce. I asked about doing no sauce and that’s what they did. Fresh and delicious. The pineapple gave it a little sauce flavor. I will definitely look them up again.

We ate here twice on our trip and our server the first time was more knowledgeable but both were accommodating and got our questions answered. My celiac daughter got fries the first time since she brought in her own meal. She liked them. The second time she wanted chips and cheese and they aren’t technically on the gluten free menu but they made it work. I would probably go weekly if we lived close. They bake everything and the regular menu was huge and everything we tried was good.

Staff very knowledgeable. Made a mistake on my fries and caught it before it was even brought out to me and didn’t make me pay for them! They told me they have a gluten free flatbread too!

Great find at the beach. Island Wing Company bakes all of their wings. No fryers allowed! Not all sauces are gluten free but they have a good selection. Fries are gluten free if they don't add seasoning. They also have gluten free beers.

This was my favorite wing place in town before I learned I have celiac disease and it still is! Servers are very knowledgeable, the bone-in wings, fries, and some sauces are gluten free. As are a handful of other items, including sandwiches on gluten free bread. They'll make sure your food's prepared separately with clean equipment, and since their wings and fries are baked instead of fried there's minimal risk for cross contamination from frying oil.

Nice atmosphere and very good/flavorful food! They always do a great job handling the gluten free orders. We just make sure to be very clear about being celiac gluten free and not just preference. They have gluten free burger buns and fries. Since they don't fry anything (everything's baked), there's no concerns of mixing fryers. Just make sure you're clear you need all your food to be gluten free and to be careful of cross contamination. We are and I've never gotten sick from here, and they're always super friendly even with all our special orders.

We have enjoyed gluten-free meals here several times in the past. However, today my son and wife both ordered off the gluten-free menu and indicated to the server that he had celiac disease. My son ordered a gluten-free Burger and came home throwing up violently. My wife had actually saved the receipt and there was nothing indicating on the receipt that it was gluten free. Please make sure to double and triple track with your server before and after you receive your food that is gluten free.
