    Could not speak higher of this place! Received a gluten free bun of my own, separated from everyone else's. I got the fish and chips, which also comes with frizzles, ALL gluten free. I also have a dairy allergy, and they made sure with the kitchen that everything was safe, which it was. Food was delicious, and the manager himself brought out my plate so as not to mix up with my mom's fish and chips, which were not gluten free. I'm extremely sensitive and had no problems after eating here. Can be considered pricey, but isn't everywhere around here?

    Brought my food out separately from the gluten containing food. Staff seemed knowledgeable and said gf option made separately to avoid cross contact. Fish and chips have onion rings on top!!

    Asked about allergies immediately as we were making the reservation. Waitress asked who needed to be gluten free so someone informed her. Menu is marked to show all the gluten free options s vs having a separate menu. When they brought bread they brought 2 types: one for the gluten free and one for non gluten free. We did not even have to ask! And, on top of all that, the food was fabulous.

    There are a lot of GF options on the menu and the server was very knowledgeable, but I found the food to be rather bland. I won’t be going back. It’s too expensive for food with no flavor.

    Our server, Michael, was well-informed about what was safe and what wasn’t. The menu is clearly marked. They even brought GF bread. The food wasn’t mind-blowing, but I was excited to be able to eat fish and chips and calamari, which hardly ever happens.

    Absolutely amazing with incredible service. Very celiac safe, and probably the best gluten free experience at a restaurant that I've ever had. The food is delicious, especially the free gluten free rolls. Staff is very knowledgeable and accommodating. The manager brought my food out himself and explained all the ingredients and cooking methods to confirm the safety! This is definitely my new favorite spot.

Waitress was very knowledgeable and the food is fabulous. I would recommend this to everyone. Gluten free beer available, gluten free rolls, and gluten free deserts as well.

    Love love love legal seafood. My first time at this location but have been to the one in the airport and in tysons. All excellent. When I started to order they had brought out regular rolls and when I mentioned gf the waitress went straight away to order me some yummy warm gf rolls. Gf fish and shrimp and fries and Greek salad shared among us. It was all super yummy. Always recommend legal seafood. Wonderful!

    LSF was recommended on a travel Website and was a quick 2 min walk from the Hilton. The server, Meredith, was bright and bubbly, and very passionate about the food and restaurant, especially the Gluten-Free options. On her recommendation I ordered the GF Fish and Chips and their GF beer. Being from NZ, I am always a starter for good F&C. Their attention to the many GF options and to food handling is outstanding. F&C looked great. But lacked flavour (needed salt and 'something' in the batter). Onion straws were dry. Chips the stringy McDonald type and a bit cool. GF beer was great. I will go back, but probably opt for the Snapper, which looked great at next table.

    Gluten free options AMAZING! I had fried fish and chips too with fried onion strings and I almost cried! It was really good even for my non gf husband. He said the batter was perfect. 👍🏻. The salad was fresh and tasty and the GM brought over hot gluten free rolls with butter which were the best gf rolls I've ever had. Still a little drier than regular, but with butter on the top you barely notice. He explained that from their point of view many are trying to avoid gluten and desire more healthy eating, so they are doing their best to meet the need. The gf options on the menu were extensive. Each item that could be made gf had a little icon beside it making it very easy to scan the options. My husband said the clam chowder was really good too. The fish and chips were $20 which is a bit high, but when I tasted it, it was amazing. The price might limit me from visiting as often as I'd like, but I'll be back!

While I usually eat dinner (gf fish and chips anyone?) here it is also an awesome location for breakfast early morning in the airport. So much better than cold eggs and bars and the other limited airport gf offerings.

    This was the third legal I ate at in one East Coast vacation haha! Be warned, the portions are HUGE here. Fish and chips consisted of three huge slices of fish on a mound of onion rings that rivaled Mount Everest! (Just kidding- but it was way too much food. My mom and I wished I had split a dish). It was a stop off the highway in Warwick and we enjoyed their gf bread. Totally felt safe.

    Not symptomatic so I can't speak to safety other than how reassured I felt. The person I spoke to on the phone was not very helpful, seemed to be guessing what was gluten free. Once I spoke to the manager I felt much better. I was relieved to hear there was a separate fryer. I did a take out order and when I walked in, I asked for the manager, Richard, who I had spoken to on the phone. He was very nice and very reassuring that he would keep my little boy safe. The fries were good.

    5 minutes after sitting down, my celiac daughter ate a gluten roll that the waitress brought to our table. This was after explaining we had celiac and her promising us GF rolls. She only ate one bite but only because I looked at the next table and realized they had the same rolls. The waitress (and manager) said “Oops. Sorry”. We did not eat there and wouldn’t recommend any other celiac eating their either.

    Menu is clearly marked w/ what items are or can be made gluten free. They use a corn mixture for frying instead of regular flour which was a nice surprise. Unfortunately our waiter was very arrogant and condescending to our questions about cross contamination and ensuring my meal was safe. The food was tasty (gf rolls were excellent!) Chowder was delicious - tasted just like clam chowder but w/ the consistency of a noodle soup almost. Fried fish platter was also very good and crispy. Nima tested the bread to ensure it was safe and it passed. Ate and did not get sick - unfortunately the waiter’s overall attitude put a damper on the experience. Would definitely return but request another service. Overall, excellent food and it’s safe.
