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 staff took extra steps to reduce the risk of cross contamination and the food is excellent with lots of gf options! You can’t ask for more than that.

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.

Gluten free rolls for lobster rolls and gluten free lobster bisque and clam chowder

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.

Chowder and lobster bisque are both gf. Any of the rolls can be made gf. They have wonderful gf bread and root beer!

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.

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.

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.

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.

The gf bun was delicious and the lobster sweet and tender. The only thing that could have made this meal better would be a gf beer.

Great lobster roll, the roll was great and the lobster was even better. Top it off with the lobster corn chowder and I’m pretty sure I’m a few steps from heaven.

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

Maybe it was my lucky day. They had GF bread and lobster roll was super. Never thought I would ever find a GF one. They wore gloves and wiped down bread toaster.

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!

Not interested in GF customers. GF bread is out for weeks at a time. Food is good and no CC just hard to support business that does not. Are about GF customers.

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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.
