I don’t know why Boston celiacs keep ranking these places highly when they won’t keep basic guidelines for cross contamination.

People: if they won’t guarantee no cross contamination or won’t use a separate space and utensils, it is NOT celiac friendly. Stop ranking these places and risking other people’s health.

Staff are knowledgeable and asked if we had a gluten allergy. Bread is one of the best gluten free rolls that I’ve had. Definitely recommend. Gluten free rolls do cost an extra $2, however

Everything can be made gluten free. They have a separate station and they will change their gloves and wash their hands before preparing food at that station. Ate here and loved it and didn’t get sick.

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.

Food is average and very expensive. Gluten free options in both bun and soup. $55 for two lunches felt extreme to us.

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 :)

The gluten free buns are delicious! Although they can’t completely account for cross contamination, they were knowledgeable of what to do to limit the risk as much as possible. They also have a lot of dairy free options

Had a separate station for the gluten free buns. Can't guarantee no cross-contamination, but they knew what they were talking about and tried their best. Didn't get sick, and the gluten free roll was yummy!

The menu is very clear on which items can be made gluten free or dairy free. I was able to get a GF Lobster Roll with a GF bun. The GF bun was the best I have ever had.

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

Their lobster rolls were AMAZING and I was shocked at how amazing the gluten free bun was. It was insane and both my 12 year old son (who is also celiac) LOVED IT!
