We were very disappointed with our experience. We were excited to see such a great gluten free menu online. When we arrived we explained to the waitress my son has celiac and asked for the gluten free menu. She said that there is really no safe items for anyone with celiac due to cross contamination as everything is cooked on shared surfaces and shared air fryer. The chef said he could use a separate clean skillet to cook the burger, but that was it. It was brought out in a basket served on top of their homemade chips which are not celiac safe. The manager had them cook a new burger and brought it out alone. They could not confirm if ketchup was gluten free. I will not return here and do not feel like their “gluten free” items are safe for people with celiac.

Extensive gluten free menu is available if you ask. Very good food. Waitstaff is very knowledgeable and can let you know which bbq sauces are safe! All 3 restaurants owned by this family (Sharkeys, Fins and Snook Haven) have gluten free menus and my celiac plagued family feel comfortable eating at them.

Great find. A little out of the way, quirky, charming spot. A GF menu available including 2 sauce options for their great BBQ.

Very good down home FL BBQ. Full gluten free menu I had the pulled pork baked beans coleslaw and woodchuck hard cider. Cute setting on the river about a mile off highway.

This "old Florida" institution has been here forever, but it wasn't GF friendly years ago. Thy have a GF menu, two GF BBQ sauces and a good understanding of our issue. No GF bread alternatives. Glad to see that I can go to our old stomping grounds and eat well.
