    They were very accommodating and changed a recipe so that it was gluten free. Fun and attentive staff.

    You know the type - they were quick to assure me there were options if I just talked to my server. When I did talk to my server, half of the items she told me were gf definitely were glutened (like the nachos, scallops). The chef was able to modify some things for my after I insisted. And the waitress was frustrated that I was asking about every food item I was served (which I have to do...). Was served at least one sauce that ended up containing gluten even though I was very clear that this was an allergy. Thy do not have a good understanding of cross contamination, even though I was assured they could accommodate. I wish they had just told me no when I walked in, as I'm sure my server did, too. Would not eat here if you have celiac.

    Very Knowledgeable staff, my son favorite place to go to eat. They make fresh gluten-free buns out of the oven and will try to make whatever you want gluten-free.

    Told the server I had a gluten allergy, was offered a plate with a piece of meat on it. No veggies, nothing. After 1 hour of waiting, Everyone in my party got food, I had an empty plate. Walked out. Worst experience I ever had in a restaraunt. Very demeaning.

    Although you have to be make sure that your server understands that gluten free is a medical issue and not a lifestyle choice, they are very sensitive to all allergens. The food is always consistently delicious.

    No specific gluten free menu but waiters are very knowledgeable. Very delicious gf rolls. We went two days in a row! Lunch and dinner reasonably priced.

    This place has great seafood. What is weird tho is that they offer a gf menu on the website but the waiter said they dont have it at the actual restaurant? He was very helpful however in making sure my food was gf. We go here regularly now.

    I had to ask 3 times for gluten free options, was given wrong information, and got a cookie in my dessert. When I asked to speak to the manager she couldn't help either. Never going again
