There was no gluten free menu, but the server spoke to the chef and they made my surf and turf in a separate pan and subbed veggies for the fries (no dedicated fryer). It was delicious! And I’m super sensitive and didn’t get sick. Winning!
I have eaten seafood east to west coast, up and down both the east and west coast, and this is the best sea food I have had in my life. I am one to never do any reviews, but it would be a crime to to tell people about this place. Althought the have no gluten free menu as the menu itself changes daily, the servers are extremely knowledgeable, going into very specific detail of how they cook your food to avoid any worry of cross contamination. They triple checked food items and knew all questions from memory. Also, their clam chowder is the best!
Jasper White's Summer Shack is outstanding in general, and they do a great job for my celiac daughter. While there's no specific gluten free menu they are able to accommodate our needs and we've never had problems.
I would say anything basic like grilled fish with rice or any raw bar options is a good choice if you have celiac. I did have one horrible experience when I ended up being served fried food when asking for the fried scallop plate to be grilled. I had to send it back explaining that I couldn’t eat gluten, and then they brought the food back with grilled scallops on top of French fries. I explained again I could not eat gluten or food that has come in contact with gluten. They seemed to understand and brought the grilled scallops with roasted potatoes, but after eating it all I found a French fry underneath the lettuce. So I assume they just brushed off the fried bits and served it on the same plate. The waitress took one round of drinks off of the bill, but we still had to pay for the cross contaminated entree that we had to send back twice.
The two last times we have been there the service was excellent. I am also allergic to white vinegar and the waitress went back several times to check for me. Even came and asked us if we could eat the blue cheese because it was grown on bread! Her mother was a celiac but the waitress we had before was just as dedicated.
I am giving one star for one reason - the gluten free options are NOT prepared separately and the risk for cross-contamination is SUPER high. I was so glad the hostess was honest with me, so I was able to save myself from getting sick with a possible e/r visit. The GF menu is very large, but nothing is entirely GF, so beware if you choose to dine here. Perhaps at some point they will change this so it will be safer for us.
The seafood specials are always outstanding I'm giving 4 stars because the kitchen isn't 100% celiac friendly yet but they're working on it. The last 3 times I've been here I have not been glutened. Keep up the good work guys
