Absolutely HORRIBLE! I genuinely never write bad reviews, but I can't not share our experience. SO.BAD. We went here for dinner and right off the bat, we made very sure we told our server that my boyfriend has a gluten allergy. We always share meals, so we ordered the rib eye and the swordfish, "both gluten free" we said. The swordfish has breadcrumbs but we were told they had GF breadcrumbs available. When our meal came out, we started to eat, but the breadcrumbs looked/tasted a little different. We asked the waitress when she came by "are there GF breadcrumbs on this, we just want to make sure." She seemed visibly annoyed when we asked, she said "there are no breadcrumbs on that!" and rolled her eyes and walked away. I pulled up the menu and sure enough, there are breadcrumbs listed, so we called her back over and asked her to double check that they used GF breadcrumbs. She again seemed annoyed with us, but went back to the kitchen and later came out and told us YES, in fact, there ARE regular breadcrumbs on it. She clearly had never written down that there was a gluten allergy. The manager came over and asked if my boyfriend wanted a glass of water (?). They obviously felt bad, the waitress said "well, I'll never do that again" (aka not take a gluten allergy seriously). We had to leave immediately so my boyfriend could go throw up in the woods. They need to educate their waitstaff about gluten intolerances and allergies and write it down on the slip. Not everyone who says they want their meal "gluten free" is doing so as a dieting preference. Such a HORRIBLE experience – never going there again.

I felt a little nervous ordering since the server seemed a little unsure about celiac but I got the veggie burger on a GF bun and didn’t feel sick at all after. She gave me the ingredients on the veggie burger and told me they put the burger and the bun on the grill instead of the griddle where they cook everything else.

Ok, I don't know how many options they have...the one that you should order is shrimp scampi with gf penne. Awesome! For the last 6 years, I've vacationed here, and I go for the shrimp lunch every time. It is so good...I add a garden salad...maybe a martini too! Fun atmosphere!

Stay away! No gf menu. Offer gf breadcrumbs for frying yet no dedicated fryer. The gf pasta came out with a strand of regular pasta in it. Leads me to think they use one pot to cook all pasta in. They have no clue, but nice try.

There are limited options but the staff knew what the dangers of cross contamination were and I was able to find something to eat. Had the scallop salad and it was delicious.
