They give you an allergen book and it will show you what has a risk of cc. I chose the two things that didn’t: shrimp cocktail and shrimp scampi with a baked potato. Everything was good and I did not get sick.

Server and hostess were very knowledgeable about gluten free. The allergen book has stars to indicate if there’s a chance of cross contamination. I got the surf and turf with lobster tail/NY strip steak. Baked potato, coleslaw, and side salad. It was all wonderful, and way too much to eat :)

Very attentive and understanding of celiac disease. Allergen menu very detailed for all allergens and easy to follow. Price was not high for gf. Server verified everything with the kitchen and told me how my food would be prepared. Meal was very good and I was confident of how safe it was for me. Excellent service.

The culinary manager had Celiac and he came to our table as soon as we got there. He said regardless of the allergen list, he could make most items on the menu GF for me. He said the fries were not in a dedicated fryer buy that he eats them almost every day and it never bothers him. After I ordered he went over my order with the server and modified it so it would be GF. Best part--the cheesecake is GF.

Update 9/2021 Don’t bother…… After Covid, everything has changed. No gluten free menu anymore, in fact I was told by my server NOTHING was gluten free.

When we started to quiz him, he got the manager who remembered what “used” to be gluten free and he talked to the kitchen staff and prepared my meal gluten free. The selection was extremely limited. The food was “ok”, I could only get salad, shrimp and baked potato. ( the rice tasted “off”) My husband who isn’t gluten free, found that the items he used to order were gone! So he ordered something new that he could have gotten at a fast food restaurant. Disappointed. I will not be returning.

Ask for the gluten free guide when they seat you - it’s a book - but you won’t regret it. All staff we have encountered have asked the chef if they are not knowledgeable about gluten in certain dishes, just ask. I have “go-to” fav’s: Skewered scallops, shrimp, baked potato, steamed broccoli & salad. So far no reaction, but I take a supplement, “gluten cutter”, when eating out ANYWHERE. You never know where there could be cross contamination, and this supplement has saved me on the road. My husband and I have been going to this Red Lobster for years and I would’ve given them a five star, but since Red Lobster left the Darden group, their food has changed a bit.

Not many options, but the are some. They have a dedicated GF menu. Taste is decent, though.

I told the server I have Celiac and explained that it’s essentially a severe allergy to gluten. I ordered crab legs, a baked potato’s and side salad. She brought the salad with croutons, so I asked if she told them I had a gluten allergy. She responded “I didn’t know.” She clearly wasn’t listening at all. Then the cook himself came out and said I can’t eat anything other than green beans or broccoli because potato’s are gluten. They know nothing about Celiac or gluten, nor do they care to even listen to their customers speak. OTHER locations have been great, this one- sucks.
