Really excited because of the gf options that they had listed on menu—specifically the loaded tater tots. I go to order and the waitress informs me that they are fried in the same fryer— therefore not actually gluten free? Well, that and the fries are the only sides labeled gluten free. Had to settle for a burger with gf bun. That was the only other choice besides a salad. GF label should be taken off.

Great atmosphere, but relegated to easy GF fare: salad and protein. Staff is friendly but not well versed. "It should be fine," was said a lot. I got a salad and added poke salad to it, thinking it likely had soy sauce in it, but she it it was GF, and I didn't get sick....but I'm intolerant, not Celiac. Live music every night and great cocktails....

The server we had was really knowledgeable about the menu and our options. She even knew soy sauce contained gluten, and that a shared frier could cause issues for sensitive folks. The food was good, but there wasn’t an extensive list of options. That said, we appreciated the cocktails and ocean views and had a lovely time.

Well marked menu, helpful server. Handful of options. No dedicated frier. I had mahi tacos 🤗 kids had burgers (they have buns available) and edamame altered to hold the soy sauce.

The cocktails were good but on the expensive side. We got to sit facing the ocean, which was nice. But I didn’t end up ordering any food even though the menu was labeled for gluten free options because the server was really short with us and just said “if it has a G that means gluten free” when I asked about a shared fryer.

If you have food allergies, just watch your back. I specifically spoke to the manager about my gluten allergy, yet had to order three times because the first two orders had gluten in them. He did his best, but I hated having to be cautious even after explaining to him twice :-/

The food and service is good, but you're on your own as far as gluten goes. There is no gluten free menu, etc

They had one item on the menu unless you wanted salad. It wasn't that great of a fish offered that night.
