They were out of the special gluten-free flour mix that they use and they admitted that they are not safe with cross-contamination even when they use their special breading. They assured me that my entire box of grilled food was gluten free but when I opened it, the box had hush puppies right next to my tacos. Then I noticed the tacos were made with flour tortillas! I called the restaurant and she asked the cook who insisted that the flour tortillas are gluten free. I don't believe they know what gluten is. No confidence in this being gluten free. The lady who answered the phone hung up on me when I questioned if it was a special type of flour tortilla. I had to throw out my dinner because I couldn't risk eating it.

We were looking for a GF seafood restaurant while in Destin. Came across the Shrimp Basket. No GF menu but the staff are familiar with what menu items are GF and very helpful. We had the grilled fish and the steamed shrimp. Several GF side items available. Food was good. We’ve eaten here several times and so far no issues.

Nearly everything is battered and fried. The grilled fish is only available on flour tortillas and the cream sauce on the blackened fish is made with flour, but at least the staff was knowledgeable! The ONLY safe option was the Steamed Shrimp Platter with 1/2 lb of peel n’ eat steamed shrimp (served with cocktail sauce and/or Tartar sauce), new potatoes (flavorless but buttered), a small corn end piece, and slaw. Overall a decent meal. My dinner partner loved his fried plate of food.

Only thing that is safe to enjoy here to my findings are raw oysters and bar drinks.

They do not have a specifically dedicated gluten free menu, but the manager was such a great resource! She knew the difference between sensitivity and allergen, which foods could be cross contaminated, and which foods were considered safe. I had the grilled shrimp, minus puppies and corn fritter, with steamed broccoli. It was a great dinner!
