While I’m not celiac my partner is and he says: “Very knowledgeable staff, eclectic and fun. Wonderfully racially mixed clientele. Fun pub-like atmosphere. Both squid and shrimp were fresh and excellent!!” And I agree…

Wynn was our waitress. She was awesome. We were so well taken care of and felt very confident about food safety. She was very knowledgeable about gluten free and made it effortless. My celiac daughter had calamari, catfish fingers, French fries. I highly recommend coming here. Huge portions and great food. Most everything can be done gluten free. They have a dedicated fryer.

Oh my goodness!! When I say the food tasted so good I thought I was “glutened” … it’s not an understatement! Shucks really out did themselves when it comes to their gluten free options! We the BREADED crispy shrimp, BREADED fish and chips and a BREADED spicy shrimp po’ boy! All of the food was fantastic and it was most definitely gluten free! No problems here at all! All of the food came out with little wooden skewer flags to alert the staff it was GF. Seriously, 10 of 10 stars AMAZING

Ordered fish and chips with shrimp appetizer. Waitress was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions without me even needing to ask her. Food tasted great, dedicated fry yes and no. Everything they fry is gluten free so they don’t need a separate fryer. She explained it’s all made with corn starch and they have someone come and certify their kitchen. They also have gluten free buns. If you want gluten free fried fish, shrimp, fries, or hash Browns. Then this is the place to eat!

The food here was amazing! I can’t believe it took me so long to finally try it, but I’ll for sure be a regular now. The fried calamari and fried shrimp poboy were excellent. The roll they used for the sandwiches is one of the best GF rolls I’ve had, I even had my husband try a piece and he said it tasted like his gluten roll. I can’t wait to try the lobster roll and fish and chips! Plus it’s very affordable for seafood. We both got our meals, an appetizer, and hard cider/beer and our tab was $43 before the tip. Highly recommend.

Edit: I ended up getting glutened last time I ate at this location. I’m going to keep my original rating because I’ve eaten at this location several times and never had an issue, but personally I’ve been sticking to the pacific location since then.

They have a dedicated fryer, the best seafood in town, and attentive staff. We've been there so many times now that the staff automatically grab the GF menu for me. I've never once gotten sick from eating here and I've never had a bad meal either. If I could give them 6 stars I would!

Stopped here for lunch on the way to catch a flight at Eppley Airfield. The gluten free menu at this location had a more limited selection than the one listed online, but it was great to eat fish and chips again, and the food was delicious! I have Celiac, and did not get sick after eating here. The neighborhood looked a bit sketchy, though.

---- update----

I may or may not have been glutened here. It could have been lunch from another place; I'm not sure since I should have gotten sick from lunch earlier if it was that. I didn't decrease my rating, but wanted to caution you just in case.

Easily one of the best gf places in town. Hang out, watch the game, drink some cold (gf) beers and shovel down delicious battered and fried sea food without worrying about getting sick. Their gf menu is almost the same as the regular menu, and their normal batter is already gf. I've been to the other locations and they're all killer. Can't recommend this spot enough. Makes me feel like a normal diner again.

Love this place! We found it on my GF app. But when we drove to it we weren't so sure. But the staff was super friendly and knowledgeable! And their GF menu was almost a huge as the regular. With dedicated fryers and special batter! The first time I've had breaded/fried shrimp, fish & chips, calamari, and my lobster sandwich was on an Udi's roll! Fantastic!

Amazing food! We had a very knowledgeable waitress, they have extensive gluten free menu and great quality. My fiancee and I split the fried clams, fried calamari, shrimp po-boy and clam chowder... All gluten free and tasted great! Their breading is gluten free and has lots of flavor. I was worried about cross-contamination, but was relieved to hear they use the same breading on all their fried items. I had no side effects, and would recommend this restaurant!
