Had the lobster roll and poppyseed slaw...both were delicious. They tell you the roll is prepared on a separate table and grill, but of course there’s always the risk of cross contamination. Understandable for any establishment. Nice treat to be able to have a grilled lobster roll rather than lobster over greens.
Amazing!!!!! Their chowder is gluten free (the person who makes it has a daughter with celiac). The lobster roll was perfect. The bread was some of the best I’ve had! The staff was very aware of celiac and cross contamination, they wiped everything down before making my food and they changed their gloves. Everything was clearly labeled. They say they can’t guarantee there won’t be CC but they take all the necessary steps and I didn’t get sick :)
Great lobster roll - gluten free bun and they were careful and knowledgeable. Cleaned grill before roasting my roll but also providing warning they couldn’t guarantee no cross contamination which I respect and is reasonable. I’m not super sensitive but I didn’t have any issues
Tried this place first day in a Boston with my husband and really enjoyed it. I had a million questions and they were patient and answered them all. I got the disclaimer that they cannot promise a complete 100% gluten free meal because there is gluten in the area and they use a shared press however they stated they had never had any problems and service a lot of Celiacs with success. They said they clean the press well, change gloves and do all there best efforts to avoid cross contamination. I asked if they could wrap mine in aluminum foil before pressing it as an extra precaution but they said they did not have any unfortunately. They gave me quite a few options if I didn’t feel super safe with having my roll pressed such as having it as a salad or just having it cold with warm butter poured over it. I opted for the cold Trio with warm butter just because it was my first day in Boston and wanted to decrease the chances of cross contamination as much as possible. I also had the clam chowder which was amaaaaazing. They took care of my meal carefully and I was super thankful for there patience!!
The staff was so unbelievably patient, helpful, and knowledgable. When I asked about the gluten free rolls, they proceeded to tell me the steps they would take to avoid any potential cross contamination. While they went to get more rolls from the back, they told me about all the other options I could get including the soups, which they purchase locally from a guy whose daughter is celiac. This was all done during the lunch rush hour to boot.....and it was delicious
I eat here about once a month and I’ve been sick. When your a gf roll, the cashier will ask if gf is a preference or allergy. When you say “allergy” they get a new cutting board, knife, and change gloves. Also the gf rolls are so good that once I thought I was served a gluten roll by mistake. I wasn’t.
My first lobster roll! Really delicious. GF bread was so buttery and good. Lobster was very fresh. Wish it was bigger though- pricey for a small sandwich. Staff ask if you have an allergy or if it’s a preference, then change gloves and wipe down bread toaster before preparing your roll.
Underwhelming experience. Went on a Saturday and asked about GF rolls, was told "oh, we'll have those on Monday." Opted for the option to put the seafood meat on a bed of lettuce but then you don't get any of the butter and seasoning that add to the flavor.
Ate here for lunch and had the trio. Also the fries were safe, which I loved! Really delicious and didn’t get sick. GF roll for the lobster, crab and shrimp roll. Plenty of food and shared with hubby. Big chunks of lobster. First lobster roll since diagnosis. Would highly recommend.
really helpful staff. had GF buns which were delicious, manager brought food personally and checked in several times to see how I was doing.
The food here was delicious! The staff were really nice, too. Note, if you’re really sensitive, the GF buns are cooked on the same grill as the glutinous ones, but if you ask they will keep yours off the grill. Completely recommended!
Walked in the snow today to get a GF lobster roll and they were out of GF buns :-(. So I got the clam chowder, and while it was ok and had a decent amount of clam pieces, it wasn't worth $10. The potatoes were a little undercooked and the soup base wasn't very creamy. Wouldn't get the soup again for that price, but wish I could have tried a lobster roll!! And they put regular oyster crackers in my bag after we had just confirmed that the soup was truly gluten free.
Sadly when we came here in July the staff was not very nice. I asked for gluten free bread with the cashier, but 10 minutes later was told by a man in the kitchen there wasn't any that day. We got cold lobster, crab and shrimp and some soup. Not really worth the walk there or the money spent.
Found this place through the FMGF app and was very please. It looks kind of sketch from the outside, but once you walk down the step into this converted basement, you will find excellent lobster rolls. This version of the lobster roll come with liquid butter painted on the outside of the roll with a small amount of mayonnaise underneath of good portion of lobster. They have gluten free buns and they clam chowder and lobster corn soup are also gluten free. They are very upfront and accommodating for all allergies and it was a pleasure returning for another lobster roll and lobster soup. Excellent. The prices are a little high for lunch $26 for the lobster combo, but worth it.
The manager names Michelle was very nice. Her father has celiac and is very knowledgeable on what is needed for cross contamination. They have yummy GF rolls that were great for the different rolls they serve. There soups are thickened with potato flour and are safe as well. Will def be back when in the area again.
Don't skip this place if you are a fan of seafood. They have gluten free buns which are delicious and the lobster bisque is gluten free too! The guy behind the counter said the owners daughter has celiac disease so they definitely know the drill.
GF LOBSTER BISQUE!!! I’ve been looking for gf lobster bisque for years and finally found it! And gf clam chowder! All their rolls (lobster, shrimp, crab) can be made in GF buns that are pre-packaged. They asked if it was an allergy or preference too bc they’ll wipe a prep surface if it’s an allergy! Super nice people too!
I wasn't able to eat there because I'm allergic to Soy. But I have to give them high marks because they took the time to read off all the ingredients for me, and were willing to toast something I brought in.
THE softest and freshest GF bread I have ever eaten, along with the fresh lobster. The lobster roll was like none other. The chowder and all the chips are GF as well. Wife had the crab and it too was superb. I would eat here twice a day if we leave bed here.
So, no dedicated grill or anything but they do have tasty gf rolls and soups. A bit on the expensive side and they charge $2 more for gf. Also I was sad they put packages of glutenful oyster crackers in my bag...
I love lobster, but as some with a gluten intolerance (not celiac), it has left me on a constant search for a GF lobster roll. I had yet to find one, until today! I had an incredible GF lobster roll. The bread was perfect, a true feat for any restaurant trying to offer gluten free. It was moist and toasted perfectly. A lot of GF bread I have had at other sandwich places tends to be smaller than my peers that eat gluten. This was NOT the case here. The roll was as big if not bigger than my friend who ate the same roll with gluten.
Simple enough. I got it without any of the butter or mayo on the lobster or bun. They have GF hot dog bun (pretty sure its Udi's). Was delicious, but with any lobster roll, $18 for a small thing of lobster on a plain roll is to be desired.
