This place was great!!! My partner is severely gluten intolerant with coeliacs and cannot rusk any exposure to gluten. In calling this place ahead of time, they said the have separate fryers for both fish and fries. Also, they have white spirit vinegar and only melt vinegar on the table if you need it. When on site I questioned anything like the vinegar used in the coleslaw or the other battered options, the server was on it to reassure without judgment to eye-rolls. The guy with the dark beard and sleeve tattoos appears quite blasé about everything but assured us that they kept everything separate and clear and are 99% sure all would be fine...my partner was confident - He would go on to enjoyed himself immensely. The only reason why I don’t mark this with five stars is because it’s got a burrito dish and standard wheat flour available. Thank you for all your help and service. Great place with damn good wine...which is hard to find in a fry-up place.
This restaurant was great! They told me they can do 95% of the menu gluten free (they just can’t do the burritos.). They have a dedicated fryer and the food is delicious!!! They noted that we are Celiac. We had the Fried calamari, French fries, Nova Scotia crab cakes (some of the best I’ve ever had!), and the Seafood Tacos (breaded halibut, shrimp and calamari.) The breading is fantastic as are the accompanying sauces and dips.
I am still here and couldn’t wait to write a review! I had the fried halibut, crab cakes, onion rings, and fried oreos. Some of the BEST food and service I’ve ever had. Also- three different kinds of cider plus wine, GF beer, etc. I absolutely LOVE this place. Reasonable prices and plenty of options!
Great fish and chips, including gluten-free options in a safe, dedicated fryer for the Celiac in our group!! Fish was tender. Various options for fries, onion rings, and tartar sauces. Many other menu items too. Good experience. Nice cozy casual atmosphere. Bathrooms were a little grungy, which accounts for the 1 missing star. There are 2 desserts on the menu, one of which is gluten-free: 3 deep-fried Glutino "Oreo" cookies with ice cream. (Not being Celiac myself, I tried the deep fried Mars bar, and admittedly, it tasted a bit fishy). Service was a tiny bit slow, but friendly.
Fantastic meal here with no CC issues and knowledgeable staff. I had fish and onion rings - the only place I know of to find them in the city. (Nice light batter) Also had some of the calamari - delicious and perfect texture. Tried some of the sweet potato fries as well. 3 of us at table had to eat gfree and 3 did not and no problems with our meals. Servers were beyond lovely and helpful. Also note restaurant carries 2 types of Glutenberg , a great Canadian gluten-free beer. So appreciate this as most places carry gluten-removed and do not realize the difference and safety issues. Great vibe inside. Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant!
They've upped their game on cross-contamination avoidance...chef Gus knew all about Celiac disease, kept me safe, made me fish and chips and a crab cake (haven't eaten a food fish & chips in years because of this lousy, lousy disease) and treated us like royalty. So delicious, made to order, no sickness.
My family and I have been there twice. The first time my sister and niece (both of whom have celiac) got to enjoy a gluten free meal with minimum cross contamination symptoms. The second time however, they both got really sick. 8 of us ate there and we all ordered the gluten free meals as to limit cross contamination. However we believe we were served gluten meals because the second we got home both my sister and niece got really sick and threw up everything. Out of 8 of us, the two with celiac got really sick. Just make sure when you go to emphasize the "gluten free" part
This place was AMAZING! The people here knew what a gluten allergy was and the precautions needed to take place to prevent cross-contamination.. The GF fried fish and onion rings were the best Gluten-Free I've ever had, so was the GF beer! Should definitely try this place! Service was on point and the atmosphere is great! Love love love this place!
it's a nice little spot. I ordered the fish and chips with sweet potato fries and it was really good. Not too greasy like a lot of places and I was surprised at their g.f beer options. some I've never even heard of. The poutin is also g.f. will have to try that next time
The staff was very knowledgeable, when I asked if there would any cross contamination, the waiter advised me there wouldn't be. With a small kitchen up front, I should have know the probability of cross contamination would be high.. The staff was great the food was very good, but I did get glutened :(
If you have a hankering for fish-nchips while in Toronto, make your way to Off the Hook Fish N' Chips. Choose from several gluten-free beers and enjoy gluten-free battered fish, French fries and onion rings. Still need more gluten-free goodness? You'll also find a gluten-free version of Canada's signature dish - poutine - at Off the Hook.
Imagine my surprise when we stumbled upon the reviews of this place! Very impressed. Gluten free beer on a hot day with gf calamari and gf onion rings! I was in heaven! Was very delicious and the gentleman that served us was also the one who owns the place. I inquired about fryer and he assured me it was dedicated gluten free and in a separate space to eliminate cross contamination. See ice was efficient and he was very pleasant! Next time I'm trying the poutine with gf gravy!! :)
