We had a so-so experience here. Ordered one poke bowl and two burgers. Fries are not gf so substituted rice. When the food arrived we could immediately see a French fry on the burger plate. When the burger was picked up there were many French fry crumbs underneath it. That happened to be my dinner and I only eat gf in solitary with my celiac daughter so I could eat it but if it had been her dinner it would have had to go back and I don’t know if I would trust them to remake it. Her poke bowl seemed fine.

Nancy has great energy. Their gluten free options were plentiful. Cocktails were great with GF options too. Fryer not dedicated but we were informed and ordered accordingly.

Do not visit this restaurant if you need to be gluten free!!! The wait staff does not understand the importance of being accurate when discussing food intolerances. I have not been this sick for several years. Wait staff said gluten free menu was not accurate so went and talked to chef and came back with suggestions for safe eating, they couldn’t understand what I meant by shared fryers?. So I avoided fried food an still got very sick.

They had a menu that listed items that weren’t gluten free. There were a lot of options. I had pineapple shrimp with mango salsa appetizer and split a watermelon salad. There were only 4 (not huge) shrimp for $15! 2 were excellent and they other 2 weren’t. My husband (not gf)got black bean burger and fries for $11 and said it was really good. My daughter got nice and reasonably priced poke bowl that was good.

Came here due to this website. They have no gluten-free menu. They know nothing about anything gluten-free. This is a bad use of this site. Won't be back.

The food was fresh and delicious. The wait staff was knowledgable and I felt comfortable ordering. They have a separate GF menu. I had the nachos with crab and the grilled mahi with coconut. The sweet potato salad was GF and delicious too! Highly recommended.

What a FUN place! Neat atmosphere. Reminds me of a Cheeseburger in Paradise. The GF menu was pretty large and varied. I chose the nachos appetizer as my meal and was astounded at how HUGE it was! Really tasty nachos from the oven, with REAL cheese, not just cheese sauce. We had a good experience; if I were local I'd definitely be going back!

We stumbled upon this fun restaurant! This was our first time in the area... Everything was great from the moment we walked in. There is a separate gluten free menu! They have gluten free wraps... The NaLu famous nachos were delicious. The Hawaiian salad was so yummy! My children loved all the gluten free finds.. Soft shell chicken tacos, hot dogs and corn chips! Jen our waitress was super sweet and made sure everything was gluten free for us! Definitely coming back before we head home!
