NO LONGER SAFE FOR CELIACS. Items are marked on the menu as "GF" that are not gluten free. They recently added chicken tenders (wheat flour) to their menu, so all fried items are now cooked in a common frier.

We ate here twice for dinner in six days because the food and atmosphere was so great. Most of their menu can be made gluten free. They use a gluten free cornmeal batter for their fried food so the fryers are safe. I highly recommend the bam bam shrimp tacos and the Fort Pickins Lemonade. Most of the seating is outside right on the sound side. Beach access for kids to play while waiting for food. Highly recommend!

They will tell you that they have fried food safe for celiac people...until you ask if they have a dedicated fryer and they tell you no...😫

Celiac daughter did not get sick at all though and server said he was careful about her order in the kitchen.

Good handful of items are GF.

Service was great, server was personable and seemed to understand GF

I ordered the peel and eat shrimp, and the Yum fish bowl with Yum sauce. They did assure me the YUM sauce was GF, and I highly suggest it. The staff was super sweet.

They are apparently going through a menu change so nothing fried is gluten free at this time. That being said the fish over sticky rice with vegetables was very good. I am really hoping they go back to offering gluten free fried foods soon. I am very sensitive to cross contamination and did not get sick. Out door eating is really beautiful here, definitely a place to take out of town guests.

So they no longer offer a designated fryer, which though staff will say an item is gluten free when digging deeper all gluten and non-gluten items are fried together.... so NOT gluten free!

Fried gluten free shrimp! It's amazing. Wait staff is frequently knowledgeable but not always; however, the kitchen staff is. Make sure to say you have a gluten allergy but their premise at least as of this review is that all fried items are gluten free so there's no contamination issues. Excellent entrees, sides are fine.

Great! Great atmosphere, food options, and wait staff. We sat outside and watched the Blue Angels practice (in the distance). Across the street from the Hilton, Holiday Inn Resort, etc. You won't even need your car (although you will appreciate having it if you attempt to eat an entire platter by yourself).

Oh my goodness. Fish and chips? Yes please. Is a great place on the water with so many options. GF listed on the menu, but be sure to ask because other stuff listed on the menu is also GF. Staff well knowledgeable.

Ate here twice this week. The first time I ordered chicken fingers, everything is fried with a corn flour mix. They said nothing else is made in the fryer and it’s all labeled on the menu. Food was excellent then I ate their last night and our waiter seemed confused. I asked about the cocktail sauce for the shrimp even though it was listed gf I always like to double check and he was pretty clueless. But I ordered chicken fingers again and they were so good and no reaction !

OMG!!! Where has this place been all my life?! Great relaxed beachy atmosphere for the whole family. Menu offers lots of yummy GF options and is clearly marked. I haven't enjoyed GF fried foods in ages and this place allowed me to indulge in fried chicken tenders and fried fish. The mermaid drink was not only beautiful but a yummy concoction. You can sit indoor or outside next to the Bay. They also have a small gift shop. Oh and all the staff were super sweet!! If you are at Pensacola Beach this is a must try!!

Delicious GF fish and chips! My wife also got the GF chicken tenders, which she enjoyed. I’d just recommend they give the slaw a little more flavor.

SO delicious! Their menu was clearly marked with a lot of GF options. Everything fried was battered in a GF batter so it was safe to eat! Fries were some of the best we’ve had! The YUM bowls were delicious too! Kids and adults loved everything we got!

I was able to order gluten-free here with no problem at all! There weren’t tons and tons of options, as I also have other dietary limitations, including dairy free and being pescatarian. But I feel confident ordering here, the menu was March gluten-free, and my server knew exactly how to help me. And the french fries are so so good!

The gf items are clearly marked on the menu. They use a dedicated fryer and even have some fried seafood option. I had the shrimp and grits, fries, peal and eat shrimp, and collards without a reaction. The food was well prepared and servers were attentive and friendly.

We went here tonight and it was great! They have a new menu and now all their fried food is gluten free!! They use a corn flour/corn starch blend so my son (who has celiac) was able to have fried shrimp AND French fries, which was a real treat! All of their sides are gluten free and the GF dinner options are clearly marked on the new menu. This was a great start to our vacation!

We ate here last night and it was awesome! I had the fish tacos (they subbed corn tortillas for the regular flour ones). The waiter did tell me the chips are corn but fried in the same fryer as chicken. So I had the mexican corn. Everything was wonderful! We will definitely eat here again!

Staff was willing to ask chef questions. Gluten free menu items are decent. If you order tacos with corn tortillas, they’re great but be sure to remind your server that they CANNOT put chips on your tray.

No gluten free menu. It's more like a guide to use with the normal menu. Food made me sick the next day though. I gave them two stars because it's a really neat place to sit outside and maybe just have drinks. The staff is all young kids that have no idea what gluten is.

They cook the bread on the grill so you'll have to ask for your food to be baked or cooked another way, but it was delicious! Most of the wait staff didn't know much about gluten but they were super nice and willing to do what they needed and got a manager involved to help make sure my food was safe.
