Similar to the last post, when we checked in, the manager was at the hostess desk. She handed me a gluten free menu when I asked, but said that they were in the process of updating the menu to match their regular menu, so it would be best for her to come by the table to discuss what they could do. She never came.

Based on other’s recommendations, I ordered the crab cakes. They weren’t the best I’ve ever had, not the worst. But, no contamination/illness so that’s a plus. Hopefully once they get their menu updated, it will be easier to navigate.

I had high hopes based on the reviews, but this place was a bust. The manager greeted us at the door, assured us "most" of the menu was available GF, and that she would personally check in on us at our table. Well, she never bothered to stop by in the 45 minutes we were there, and our waiter shot down most of the things we tried to order. I credit the server for being up-front and knowledgeable and not talking us into ordering the wrong foods, but the manager really dropped the ball.

The food was mediocre. The service was spotty. The restaurant wasn't exactly clean. I'd describe it as a half step up from a dive to be honest.

The icing on the cake was my wife got sick about an hour after we left. I don't think it was gluten. I think it was just poor food safety. Definitely not returning to Summer House!

Make sure to ask for GF menu! GF crab cakes were great. Waitress knew about GF and manager delivered the food and let us know it was prepared safely.

Went to this restaurant based on user reviews and was not disappointed. They do have a dedicated gluten free menu and the manager brings your food to the table explaining that they take food allergies seriously and to let her know if I have any concerns. I got the chicken tacos which were pretty tasty.

My family and I had lunch here. Similar to Big Fish Grill they have a separate gluten free menu and the manager comes out and speaks with you and delivers your food to the table. I had baked wings and a large salad. Several gluten free options and kind servers. We will return the next time we are in the area.

We had a server who was knowledgeable of the disease and need for precautions when preparing food. A manager stopped by and relayed that she was aware of my need for GF and that the restaurant takes steps to prepare the food properly. The manager did this on their own which was reassuring. We struck up a conversation with a foursome near us. They had a member of their group who has Celiac disease. She indicated she eats at Summer House when in town as she feels confident in their food preparation and enjoys the food.

The food I had was gluten free (burger, no bun - baked potato and cole slaw) and the service was fine. But honestly, this place is rundown and the table top finish was gummy.

Separate gluten free menu—server asked if I had a preference or an allergy which always makes me feel like they understand celiac. After I placed my order a manager came to review and confirm that it was gluten free, and the manager delivered my meal separately. Felt very safe eating there and food was good.

They have a dedicated GF menu. Hostess and waitress were both very good and knowledgeable about gluten issues and the GF options. Wife was very comfortable dining there.

Food is good (especially the slaw!!!!) and portions are generous. They do take reservations. It is a popular place with young families.

All staff from reception to servers recognized "celiac disease." Good GF menu with several choices for each course. I had lobster bisque which was delicious (served with packet of wheat flour saltines 😢 so someone wasn't thinking, made me a little nervous but was assured it was GF), crab cakes were also wonderful with side of Yukon gold mashed potatoes. Portion was large enough I took some home for next day's lunch in a much appreciated cardboard takeaway box (we generally refuse plastic or Styrofoam for environmental reasons). Will definitely eat here again

I was disappointed. My food was just ok- shrimp and scallops over vegetables, not much flavor. My daughter's steak was too charred for her to eat. Maybe they were having an off night. All in all its good that they have a gluten free menu, but my experience was just mediocre.

Large gluten free menu. When our waitress was told about celiac disease she sent the manager over to take my son's order. He also delivered the meal as soon as it was ready to ensure nothing happened to his meal. Only drawback is the shared fryer so he couldn't have French fries:(. We will plan to go back to Summerhouse next time we're at the beach.
