Ordered takeout and they answered all of my questions for gf. Menu says to order fries without seasoning but they do not have a dedicated fryer so ended up getting grilled tuna and shrimp, loaded potato and slaw. Also got the Rockefeller oysters, it was all delicious! Will definitely be back!

My friend and I ordered side salads without croutons. The waitress stated the salads were pre-made so they already had croutons on them, but said the kitchen could make us fresh salads without croutons to avoid cross contamination. That didn’t happen. We found crumbs from the croutons on our salad (after it was too late). We both got sick. They clearly had just taken the croutons off of the pre-made salads.

There was a decent selection of gluten free food.

Waitress was quite rude and did not seem to care about us having celiac.

I enjoyed this restaurant immensely. I felt very comfortable eating here and the waitress put me at ease. I enjoyed a plate of shrimp and grits and I didn’t suffer at all! Yay!! The food was really delicious!

I have loved The Oyster House for the many years that my family has come here on vacation. Now having Celiac disease, it was refreshing to find that they have a pre-made gluten free menu with lots of great choices. I would avoid fried food, due to the risk of cross contamination in the fryer, but everything else here is simply wonderful!

This establishment was great! 👍🏻 The staff was somewhat familiar with gluten free options. They had a dedicated gf menu. Some of the things to offer was the following: Catch of the day, Regular Shrimp, Shrimp and Grits, Butter Pecan Mahi, Coleslaw, Salad Bar, Baked Potato, Turnip Greens. There were other items on the list, but they slip my mind. I had blackened shrimp and grits with a side of extra grits and the salad bar. Amazing! I did not get a reaction and the food tasted great! Very friendly staff! DOES NOT HAVE A DEDICATED FRYER FOR THE FRIES, even though they say they are gluten free😔
