Not celiac friendly

Even though there are items on their menu labeled "gluten friendly" barely anything except mussels and some tacos are celiac friendly. This was extremely disappointing. The waitress did a great job running back and forth to the kitchen to check with the kitchen staff about making items truly gluten free, but every time she came back with bad news. Finally I decided to order the overpriced mussels, and they brought the plate to my table with 4 pieces of bread which contaminated the entire meal. Go for the atmosphere and the drinks, certainly not the food especially if you have a gluten allergy.

I had a great experience here. Menu clearly states was is gluten friendly. I had the fish tacos and there were absolutely delicious. Look forward to trying the chips topped with crab next time!

Not celiac friendly

This place is not Celiac friendly. The staff was knowledgeable about gluten free options on their menu but did not seem to want to take the time to fully explain what can be modified and what is and is not gluten free. Our waitress seemed impatient that I did not immediately find something gluten free without on the unlabeled menu and was reluctant to go and ask the kitchen questions. I was sick with a glutening before finishing my entree, it was an overall a pretty miserable experience. If you are gluten free as a dietary choice this is probably a great place to eat, the food was overall very tasty but I would not recommend this for someone with celiac/gluten intolerance.

They have some gluten free option s, (but they aren't specifically labeled. The tacos and supposedly nachos) are gluten free and delicious. The staff mostly knows offhand what is safe. Gluten free beer and cider.
