Not celiac

Overall Rating


After talking to the waitress I ordered the GRILLED halibut with rice. It arrived seared with breading on it. I asked if they had GF breading and the waitress brought it back to the kitchen and came back insisting it was gluten free. I am not celiac but have an extreme sensitivity to gluten and tried the middle of the fish. My stomach blew up and I got heartburn after a few bites. Since it was a business meeting and I had made enough of a stink, I left hungry after a $30 lunch .

Celiac friendly?

cider on draft. fish/seafood could be baked/boiled instead of fried. raw bar safe. got tuna tartare tacos in lettuce wraps instead of fried corn shells and side of coke slaw. overpriced for portions, but you pay for the ambiance, location, experience. just be sure to tell waiter needs (e.g. Celiac, allergy, or preference)

Heard there was a gluten free menu, but they said they didn’t have one when I went. Do not have a dedicated fryer, and didn’t feel too confident ordering so just got shrimp cocktail
