We went there and had a very bad experience, I would NEVER go back!!! We asked if they had a gluten free fryer and we were told no it was as not safe for celiacs. But my celiac son went last week and he was told that they did. We now know why he didn’t feel good for the rest of his stay with us. They didn’t give us a drink menu and we even asked for one. The food we did get was cold and not good at all. I think this is the first time I have ever given anyone a bad review, but our experience was just so bad, I couldn’t let it go and not tell others. I believe it is irresponsible to tel people that the food would be safe and put people in a danger of being very sick.

Despite a gf fryer they don’t advertise their stuff as GF but they’re happy to make most things GF.

This place is awesome. The owner is celiac so just about everything on the menu is gluten free and there are no worries about cross contamination! First time I have had battered fried fish at a restaurant in 40 years! Want fries? No worries. Nothing with flour goes into the fryers. Want clam chowder that is gf? You can get it here and it is delicious! Servers are super informed and really get it! Highly, highly recommended by a long time, very sensitive celiac.

No separate gluten free menu. Server was uneducated on gluten free. Stated only thing safe to eat was a hamburger and rice. Potential for good celiac safe options if servers were more educated and helpful! Will not eat there again!

They now have a gluten free menu, however, their quality of food has gone straight down hill. I sent back two things I had for dinner the last time I was there. I ordered a new appetizer, the lobster claws, they were dry!!! No flavor at all, I tried drowning them in butter and salt, blech, horrible. They do have a gluten free menu and I must say that I do not get sick there when I eat there, there quality has gone down hill and I wont be back there soonl

Excellent burger (they grill the bun so it's got some crisp to it). Separate menu. Waitress says the owner has celiac, so all the staff are trained in safe handling procedures. She also said they have at least one GF dessert at all times (I didn't try it, no room).

The gluten free menu is integrated to the normal menu. I am an extremely sensitive Celiac and I have been there four times without an issue. Knowledgeable staff. They have had better training in recent months and I would recommend it to other Celiacs.
