Top quality seafood and meats prepared perfectly in wood fired oven or mesquite charcoal grill. No GF menu but server was knowledgeable and offered to confirm preparation with kitchen. I ordered the Whitefish which was simply seasoned and cooked perfectly. Dining room is spacious and conversation friendly; large separate bar area. Great GF food and dining experience; highly recommended.

Attended a work outing in one of their banquet rooms. Ordered off the regular menu and was told that most things can b modified and prepared GF. Wait staff was aloof about my allergy. I asked them to alert the chef of my allergy to make sure my meal was prepared GF. I do not think this was actually done. I believe there was no gluten in my meal but think that I am the victim of cross contamination. I got sick a few hours after eating at home. 😢

Great restaurant, did not have anything on the menu listed but they had amazing options for us including vegan options that were also gluten free...forbidden rice, veggies, and cotton candy

We always have a great meal here. Lunch and dinner are superb. They have a nice gf menu and offer bread with your meal if you ask. Best lobster roll around!

No longer a GF menu but the bar tender (I ate at the bar) seemed knowledgeable. He gave me a "don't worry about it, I'll take care of you" which of course makes me worry about it. He did however seem to understand about cross contamination. Use your own judgement. The food tasted very good but I don't have strong reactions so can't comment confidently on how celiac friendly they are.

Not clear on the concept.Spoke personally with manager and server, was assured they handled gluten free requests for medical reasons all the time, specifically asked for my food to be simply prepared...and got sauteed green beans with a pool of soy (not tamari) sauce at the bottom. Glutened! They also told me the flourless chocolate cake had a light dusting of flour on the top, would that be ok? Or they could cut the crust off their key lime pie.

Wonderful experience. When i called to ask about gf options, i spoke with a very enthusiastic manager that assured me the menu was 90% ready for gf ordering, the staff was knowledgeable & soon they would have a 100% gf menu! I was not disappointed at all. Wonderful atmosphere, delicious braised short rib, great server- its a must try! I will return!
