The food is absolutely delicious! All of the rolls (on gf buns), the chowder, and the bisque are great. I really missed lobster bisque and this bisque is up there with the best. The employees are understanding, and do what they can to prevent contamination.

Visiting Boston and wanted a GF lobster roll. Great options here. We got to try the trio roll with lobster, crab and shrimp as well as the lobster sampler with different seasonal flavors. Ordered through grub hub then called to discuss GF precautions, and they were very proactive.

Delicious lobster roll on buttery bread and hearty clam chowder. GF isn't listed on menu but just ask the staff.

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.

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

Delicious lobster roll! Didn’t have a ton of marked gluten free options but it was exactly what I wanted. No reservations so get here early! You can also eat at either of the bars.

SO GOOD. Best lobster roll and gf bun I’ve ever had. It was similar to a hot dog bun, and the butter they put on was amazing. No cross contamination issues, and the staff was cautious and cleaned the area before preparing my food. Highly recommend.
