I had the mahi mahi tacos. I was about to eat them when i realized that they gave me flour tortillas instead of corn. The waitress was very apologetic and it was an honest mistake. She quickly got them changed for me. Just be careful when eating here, but the tacos were pretty good.

Gluten free menu (not many choices) but Server was very diligent about letting chefs and manager know to ensure no cross contamination. Even said “we take allergies very seriously here”. Would definitely go back for the Mahi Mahi tacos!

Nervous Nellies has one of the biggest and best gluten free menus at Fort Myers Beach! I have eaten there many times now and it’s hard to pick a favorite but the crab and artichoke dip or wings to start with and the mahi-mahi tacos on corn tortillas with black beans and rice topped with fresh pico are absolutely delicious!

GF menu available. Attached is menu from Aug2022. Server was unsure about some of my questions but was proactive in asking the kitchen. Since I cannot eat tomatoes, I couldn’t eat the chipotle sauce on the shrimp fajitas. The manager whipped together a little gf, tomato free sauce for me. I greatly appreciate the effort.

Separate gluten free menu. I had the crab dip, and the mahi tacos. Both were delicious. The restaurant is right on the water, and there was live music on the patio.

Not sure they understand celiac disease. Ordered from the GF menu which offered corn tortillas, they brought me flour. The last time I was here I ordered a GF salad it was delivered with Pita bread. Watch for cross contamination. If you do not have celiac this is a great restaurant. Otherwise, celiac people beware.

They did have a separate gluten free menu, but after ordering from the gluten free menu, my food arrived with both unsafe gravy on my mashed potatoes and breadcrumbs on my fish. They brought me a new plate of food but I ended up getting sick later that night. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone with celiac disease!

No gf menu. I had the steamed crab legs, corn on the cob, potatoes and melted butter. It was pretty good, but not much else to choose from.

Friedly straff and great sevice but they don’t have a dedicated fryer so you can’t eat fries and my wife got wheat tortillas with her plate ordered from their GF menu. Luckily we questioned it and got new corn ones. Don’t recommend for celiacs but for the rest of us food was great

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Even though they bake their own breads in house with high gluten flour they made sure there was no cross contamination on my friends food. Ask for Faiza or Darlene they are the managers that helped us out.
