Had the lobster risotto - super yummy, and I didn't get sick!

2022 - Ate here again. The chowder was the only item marked GF, but there were other items available. I had an arugula salad with salmon, and a cup of their delicious chowder.

Only got the chowder, nothing else was labeled GF. It wasn’t the best meal I’ve ever had and was a bit overpriced, but I think it was very safe, and I didn’t get sick. If you need a safe celiac meal in Martha’s Vineyard, this is a great place to go!

This place was fantastic. The clam chowder was the only thing on the menu marked GF but the waiter checked with kitchen staff to confirm all other questions I had while ordering. The chowder was DELICIOUS and I ordered the Pork Prime Rib with balsamic peach glaze, brussel sprouts and potatoes. It was a very yummy meal. No GF desserts on the menu. I would absolutely recommend.

This is some of the best GF clam chowder I’ve ever had. That being said, they only offer the meal in cup size and don’t really have any other GF options on the menu. (I ended up ordering two cups of chowder to hold me over.) Would recommend it here if you’re a fan of clam chowder!

Chowder was fantastic, only thing I could eat outside of probably their raw stuff. Had the chowder twice during the week, no reaction, was probably the best I've had, even before celiac.

I’m sure if you can eat chowder this is a great option but besides that they don’t really have a great GF selection. I ended up with a bunless burger and they forgot the lettuce to wrap it in.

I hadn’t realized how much I had missed clam chowder. Yum! Other GF options were marked, but we were there for the chowder. It was quite busy for dinner on a Friday night and we were able to snag a table set aside for a later reservation.

Our server was very knowledgeable and helped us know which items on the menu were gluten free or could be made gluten free. Their New England clam chowder was worth the trip by itself! The rest of the food we had was delicious too. We had a GF steak and a GF chicken dish. We subbed french fries (non-dedicated frier) for mashed potatoes. Definitely worth a visit.

Gluten Free chowder is okay, but the app says that there is a gluten free menu, which is not true. There is no separate frier and the only things that were celiac friendly other than the chowder were salads. Definitely not celiac friendly.

Clam Chowder was Gluten Free and fantastic! I never saw so many clams and potatoes. Fresh hamburger! No GF buns or bread. No dedicated GF fryer yet. But they went out of their way to make GF substitutions. Hummus was great! Very fast and kind service by our server, Jake.

No gluten-free menu but Wait Staff knowledgeable about Glutenfree diet. Clam chowder was good. Lobster roll ( without roll) didn't need the parsley and onions. Lobster doesn't need anything added to be great.

Chowder is excellent. Staff was very knowledgeable. Served burger with no bun. Not the best for picky kids, but great adult options. Would be better if they had g free bread.

The clam chowder was tasty and plenty of clams if you're in Oak Bluffs definitely worth trying.

Having won best chowder in New England from multiple sources for the last two years, as well as best new restaurant, Martha's Vineyard Chowder Company has become quite the hot spot to check out. The chowder is a tasty, clam-filled treat, and great news for us, it's gluten-free.

Located right in the center of Oak Bluffs, which is a plus. The clam chowder is gluten free, and it's pretty good. Otherwise, though, there is no GF menu and I have no idea what else is safe to eat. My sister (also celiac) went there as well and told me that they helped accomodate her and showed her other potential options, but I don't think there were very many.

Food was good but every time I eat there I get sick. I don't have symptoms so it could be something else but the fact that it's happened numerous times makes me think it's them.
