    They had a good amount of gluten free options on their menu. Salads, calamari , two chowders, some of the fish dishes. Waiter was not very knowledgeable but the icons were right on the menu and the hostess was very informed.

    Nice location...gf fryer.. however if they can do gf fried shrimp why not gf fried fish.....my gf fish tacos were good .... And gf NW fish chowder was good... But not good enough to bring me back to eat here. Staff knew about gf... Short staffed so long wait at table for food.

    The staff were knowledgeable and they do have a separate fryer! I’m a really sensitive celiac and had zero issues. The calamari is fantastic!

    Would give this zero stars if I could. Server had zero objections to me trying to order fried calamari- which is allegedly gluten free per their menu -even after I asked if it needs anything special or modified for Celiac. I had a brain blast moment shortly after ordering, and asked a different server/kitchen staff if the fryer is separate or a shared one. It’s shared, meaning the calamari is NOT gluten free for a Celiac, is a glorified GF item. If you want something for a Celiac and you’re in Seattle, this is not the place to go, unless you’re prepared to get sick from misinformation concerning your food.

    Amazing salmon and great atmosphere! Everything on menu is labeled if it’s gluten free. I’m very sensitive to cross contamination and I felt great after! Definitely want to go back!

    The staff was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Our server was celiac so she shared what she could have including the calamari which was so tasty! Farm to table style food offered and I was very surprised and pleased. Would recommend!

    Nice place. Some options for GF. Did not get sick and ate salad and potatoes and seasonal veggies brocolini. They need more non meat options.

    Happy Hours (3pm to close daily) offer the best prices! The House Smoked Salmon and Corn Chowder is gluten free and delicious! I would say that 50% of the items on the menu are gluten free.

    Terrible!! I ordered off the GF Menu. And asked the waitress to please put an allergy alert on my order. But still got sick. Plus to top it off the food did not taste good. We were very disappointed especially for the cost.

    The host was confident about being able to cook everything GF. Our waiter was a very rude and I don't care about your disease person. Our waiter was too busy to even acknowledge how I was a Celiac, so I opted to order anyways because of the time of night...I stayed away from the chowders and pancetta items due to the previous comments left on this restaurant. The food was very subpar for the price....I did not get cross contaminated, that is why I gave a 3 star rating. I would not go back though due to the poor service and price of food!

    I ate here today for lunch. I got the seafood paella which was listed as gluten free. I also got the prawns appetizer also listed as gluten free. Within just a couple hours of eating here I was rushing to the bathroom. Needless to say, I wouldn't recommend eating here if you are sensitive to gluten or celiac. It was very tasty and they accommodated us for our dairy intolerance too but u fortunately I got very ill. And I am on vacation. I'm giving it two stars because it did taste good. Otherwise it would only get one star.

    The pier restaurant just reopened July 1, after a complete renovation. The food was good, and there were a decent number of items on the menu that could be made gf. In addition, a note on the menu said they could work with you on other items, as well. They worked with me to keep me dairy free on top of the gf. There are actually 2 Ivar's at this location now. One is a walkup outside, order at the window- not gf. The restaurant would have to be more of a 3$$$ price wise. Views of the water and the ferry boats coming in and out are great.

    Lots of GF menu options. The smoked salmon and corn chowder, and the fish tacos were both incredible. Also had a GF hamburger with fries from a dedicated fryer for our daughter. Great lunch!

    Not a ton of options but the servers were willing to check on things. You have to do the sit down diner and nothing in their fryer is celiac safe. My spouse has celiac and they were not bothered

    Excellent Gluten free options. Everything was delicious! They have Gluten Free, rice flour calamari! Delicious! I've not seen this made or served anywhere else and haven't eaten this in 3 years, since I went GF. It was a treat. The Halibut was thick, and beautifully white as snow. So good! They also have 3 dessert options that were GF. Best meal around.

    First time here for dinner. Great looking decor inside and awesome views of Puget Sound and the island. The service was attentive and friendly. I had checked out the menu online and there were plenty of Gluten free dishes. My wife and I started with the bacon wrapped scallops which were flavorful and cooked perfectly.The surf and turf was yummy with a juicy 6oz sirloin and Coho Salmon in a lemon sauce. Overall a great meal.

    Gf options have *. But we modified a dinner and removed things and they would not substitute anything and price stayed the same.

    Went here for July 4 fireworks display over the lake. Nice gluten free options, including dessert. We had the seafood brochette, and a chicken breast with mashed potatoes.
