Have a GF menu. Ordered the GF shrimp, came with potatoes and corn (kind of similar to low country boil). Shrimp were ok. Nothing to write home about. No reaction so I do believe they have safe practices.

I did not actually eat here yet, but I had read in some of the comments that they have delicious fries and a dedicated fry fryer. We stopped in today to ask about/confirm that and they said they used to but they don’t anymore. So, just a heads up, they only have 1 type of fryer now and it is NOT gluten-free!

(Review from a local) We’ve eaten here twice and both times my son and I got glutened. We were very very sick. We won’t be coming back. If you have celiac do not eat here unless you want to be vomiting for 3 days.

Returned after a bad experience 2 years ago when the GF menu was new. St Aug beach location. Busy Saturday night. What a difference. Menu is clearly marked where GF. Dedicated Fryer. Our server Lexi was knowledgeable and confident. Had 2 sushi rolls for dinner. Excellent taste and freshness. I asked to see the soy sauce bottle. Lexi brought out Kikkoman GF soy sauce option. Appetizer of GF fries was big and very good. Liked everything so much we returned again for lunch. That time a GF Caesar salad came with a cup of croutons on the plate. Server apologized. I removed them and did not get sick. Recommended.

They do have a GF menu, but limited offerings on it. They do have GF buns for their sandwiches and the fries are in a dedicated fryer. The grilled fish sandwich (Mahi mahi) was fabulous. Our first server wasn’t very knowledgeable, so we requested a manager. Overall I was pleased with the meal. I am not celiac so I cannot address whether it is celiac safe or not.

I had the grilled catch of the day and sticky rice. Being a sensitive celiac, I wanted to eat safely the night before my plane trip home. If I’m back in the area again, I’d definitely go back because there were several other items on the GF menu I’d love to try. My non-celiac husband loved his fish sandwich and grilled vegetables.

Fries had batter chunks in it. The fish sandwich was flavorless and blah. Got sushi as well which was good but oddly warm.... was told, “we have no gluten free menu at this time” but it was still available online. Cool experience I guess but got glutened so there’s that.

Only good thing is the extensive GF menu, got the fish sandwich and fries, fish sandwich was dry and I definitely got glutened (likely from the fries I’m guessing) as I am not even home yet and I am I’m agonizing pain, do not recommend if you are highly sensitive to cross contamination like me

We truly enjoyed eating here on out vacation. We enjoyed eating here so much that we are here for dinner twice. They have a dedicated fryer and their fries were so good. You have to ask for a gf menu but the menu is very well done and had plenty of choices. Me and my girls have gluten and dairy allergies and they were able to accommodate us with no problems. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. Every time they brought out our plates they made sure to say that is was gf. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

They had a separate gluten free menu with lots of options. Our waitress seemed knowledgable, and she made sure the chef and kitchen staff knew that I needed strictly gluten free when preparing my food. I had the blackened red snapper and grilled veggies. It was great, and I did not get sick (I am celiac)! I would definitely go back!

They do have a separate GF menu. I am also allergic to soy so my choices were more limited but our waitress was awesome. She verified the ingredients on the GF bun and subbed avocado for mayo. Will go again!

Murrah, our server, was well trained and assuring with answers to questions concerning gluten free. The back of the GF menu was very impressive with information about gluten. They even gave the ingredients for their balsamic dressing. I always order very simple foods the first time in any restaurant just to be safe. The blackened Mahi with vegetables that I had was delicious and the ambiance was great. I felt completely safe and had a wonderful dinner on the roof top.

My visit was on 8/17/16 and they had just rolled out their new gluten free menu the day before. The GF menu was pretty extensive, apps, salads, sushi, burgers/chicken sandwiches and full meals which included fish and steak. They have a dedicated fryer and also on the back of the menu state their allergen practices and prevention of cross contamination, also stating that all the spices used are certified gluten free. I got a chicken sandwich and fries and they were both really good, it was so great to be able to order fries for once! It was a treat for sure! I like when any server who brings the food to the table to verify that the meal they are giving me is gluten free but they didn't do that here, so I had to ask to be sure myself. I did email the restaurant and made that suggestion to them. I had no issues after eating here and will go back!
