Menu was clearly marked with gluten free options and the waiter also checked with the kitchen for me to confirm which items I could/could not have. I got a house salad and the jerk chicken. I also got a grapefruit crush because the vodka was gf as well. I have celiac and did not have any issues. Great place for families!
Staff not very knowledgeable. Mainly entree items were noted as gluten free. Inside area very noisy , outside seating was very scenic. My entree was very good and well prepared. but some of my family were not as happy with their non gluten free meals. Fun games for children there .
Server had no clue what "Gluten Free" was and thought we were asking for something free for our child to eat. We asked for a manager to clarify what was gluten free besides the seafood and salad labeled as such in the menu. We asked if they could make the GF chicken wings in a child's portion instead of the kids meal options. He said they couldn't do that but would give us a discount on the wings, but advised us the wings were made in a shared fryer and definitely not gluten free as stated and labeled on the menu. Ended up with a plain chicken breast from a sandwich (minus the bread) and corn for $16 for an 8 year old. Do not recommend this place for GF or for dining in general (overpriced and service was lacking).
Another safe and delicious meal from Ropewalk with dedicated assistance from Manager Tammy! Ropewalk is our must visit restaurant each trip to OC! My 5 y/o feels like a queen! They can always accommodate our allergies and large groups (always one, two or three families of 4). Everyone raves about the food! B/c my daughter loves their burgers, I go prepared with a gluten, soy and egg free bun. They provide the rest. She orders sides from a selection (i.e. green beans, applesauce, corn on the cob). Tammy always comes prepared with options empowering her to "order" what she would like. For a tiny little thing, my daughter ate almost her entire burger (a lot)! She also enjoyed sweet yellow corn (bringing home the extra). My mom, nut and SEAFOOD allergic, was concerned but Tammy also provided her with safe options. She was deliberately seated away from the crowd on the end as she can react to the smell of shellfish and the outdoor setting reduced her exposure thus allowing her to go with the entire family for the 1st time in years. She enjoyed fried green tomatoes in a special fryer (not the same oil). She's not a big eater. After dinner, my daughter LOVED the safe soft serve ice cream (dairy free too). Have to admit, my husband and I shared what was left of her treat and it was among the best we had eaten. As this visit was early in the summer, staff was still being trained and the wait staff seemed "overwhelmed" by the allergies and large party but immediately Tammy and Cody took charge and ensured all was coordinated and appropriately taken care of! Even given a chance out of courtesy to meet the owner...a special treat for a fellow food allergy parent! Super excited to learn of three more locations opening up in the very near future with the same level of staff training/awareness of allergy food prep & serve protocols! As 11 of our extended family members drove with us (4) from Bethany Beach DE to eat at this restaurant b/c it is always "safe" for our daughter, I am thrilled next year we will be able to enjoy their new Bethany location! Everyone left full and the kids had a chance to play on the fun playground, take home Frisbees and they always give my daughter a special gift -- a beautiful t shirt with their logo. Can't thank everyone, particularly Tammy, enough! We'll be bringing new crowds with us at different times throughout the summer
Very disappointed with this restaurant. It advertised several gluten free options including wings which I was very excited about. When I arrived and ordered the wings they said this could not be done because they are "gluten friendly" which means that they come in contact with other gluten items. With that being said all of their "gluten free items" are "gluten friendly". So I ordered the filet mignon which came with vegetables. Again I was told that I could order the filet but that the sides would not be safe and the only option for a side would be either applesauce or coleslaw. This is definitely not celiac friendly and the staff was not accommodating which is unfortunate because it is a very nice setting. Be ware of these false advertisements in the future. Never had an experience like this before.
