They have a Gluten free menu and the waitress informed the kitchen staff that our daughter has celiac without us having to ask her to. They seem to understand the importance. The food is pretty good, it's your typical tourist fare.

I was a little disappointed. Although my mahi and broccoli were cooked well, there was no seasoning on either (per their menu). I am grateful the fish was moist and well cooked but I love good flavorful dishes. We probably will not go back .

My waitress was honest in saying she didn't understand the gf menu well, but definitely did her best to accommodate. I would eat here again for sure!

Waitress was friendly and understanding, brought a separate printed gluten free menu and was sure it was brought out correctly. Had ribs and a dish with fish that were good

Very touristy, but worth it. I had the grilled shrimp and grits. They were wonderful. There is not a huge GF menu, but enough options of seafood vs. non seafood. My waiter was very knowledgeable. The kitchen cooked mine in a clean area and changed gloves. I did not get sick.

My 16 year old daughter was thankful for a gluten free menu. She got the grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, and mango slaw. When they brought it out they asked who had the gluten allergy and gave her food on totally different plates. She felt like her food was safe and we appreciate that!

Mostly fried food but the few gluten free options were delicious. They did have an allergen book to see what every dish had. Needs gluten free kids meal though.

Server was knowledgeable about gluten free options. I had no symptoms of cross contamination after I ate.

I got two grilled chicken breasts seasoned well with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. I also had a pina colada.

Frozen pina colada is gluten free.

I had the seafood Cobb salad (minus the imitation crab) and did not get sick afterwards. It was yummy, but without the crab the only seafood was 3 pieces of shrimp.

My family enjoyed Pineapple Willy’s on Thursday, June 6, 2019. My wife and youngest daughter both have celiacs, so finding a safe place to eat can be challenging. (My wife in particular is VERY sensitive - and she will be out of commission for at least 24 hours if she eats anything contaminated.) Pineapple Willy’s is definitely safe. First of all - they have a dedicated menu for gluten free items. It basically shows what is safe from the main menu. Second - they DO NOT have a dedicated fryer. So nothing fried is safe. But - there is a terrific menu available. My wife had the mahi-mahi with corn on the cob and mashed potatoes. She said it was delicious. My daughter had the bucket of ribs, with corn on the cob and coleslaw. I had the grilled shrimp and my older daughter (who doesn’t have celiac) had the Willy Philly. Everything was great. The waitress was very helpful and was great at answering our questions about the menu.

The staff was knowledgeable about allergens and their allergen menu. The allergen menu itself was one of the most detailed I’ve seen. Lots of choices, too. Felt very safe eating here.

They have a GF menu but contains 4 different salads and 4 different fish options. I go the Mahi Mahi which was on the gluten free menu. It seemed over cooked and I ended up sick before we left. I ended up being up all night and I have been completely miserable all day today. We are so very disappointed. My non-celiac family members enjoyed the food 😕

Food is good but all three of the gluten intolerant folks in our group got sick despite ordering from the GF menu. Nice people too.

I was very disappointed in the menu items. I ended up ordering a Caribbean Salad with grilled chicken and was assured it was gf (it was on the gf menu) and I was sick before I even made it to the car.

There weren't a ton of GF options but the server was very familiar with GF and dairy free options and my food was very clean. I didn't have any issues with it. I'd eat here again.

Gluten free menu options were okay. Not many side options. Grilled fish had a good taste. Server seemed knowledgable about GF. No problems after eating there. Nice family place.
