    Limited menu options in general and especially for those Gluten free. Amazing location, great for drinks and to watch the sunset

    Update Aug 2016. Went for dinner. Had the Mahi and polenta. It was delicious and I didn't have any issues. Many more GFree options for dinner compared with when we have been for lunch over the past few years. July 2014--There were not many GFree options for lunch. I risked the bbq and slaw. It tasted good, but portion was small given the cost, and unfortunately i had some stomach distress after. Everyone else in my party loved their food. My husband still ranks their burgers as a top five favorite.

    I have dined at Blue Point each year on our OBX trip and have been very happy with the food, the cleanliness of the restaurant, the service, and the view. Celiac disease makes me very sensitive to even trace cross contamination, but I am very pleased to report that I have had no issues after our Blue Point meals. Just let them know you need gf; they seem to speak and understand it well.

    Location and ambience is exceptional. It's very cozy and right on the water, and right off a boardwalk which is fun with shops. My waiter seemed very GF knowledgeable. I wish the whole restaurant was more so. When the dishes come out I expect my dish to be known as GF, but they started to give me the wrong dish. That said, the food was very good and I did not get sick. The scallops I ordered were excellent.

    My rating is entirely based on how gluten-friendly this restaurant is. We called to make a reservation and announced that we had a child with CD when doing so. When checking in upon arrival, the hostess confirmed without solicitation that we had a CD diner in our party and seated us. Upon arrival of the waitress, we were informed that the only item on the menu that our 8 year old son who has CD can have is grilled chicken plus various vegetables. We were also told that there is no children's menu so our 3 year old was offered pasta with chicken. No children's menu equals not kid friendly in my book. We also had a vegetarian in our party who was offered "a vegetable plate." When we asked the waitress to specify what vegetables came on the plate she vaguely announced "whatever is available, but if you tell me what you don't like I'll make sure it's not included." As for the food: the menu is 6 pages (including front and back cover). There are 3 pages for alcohol, and 1 each for food, desserts, and the restaurant's name. I was in a party of 10 so we had a good variety of the menu's offerings. The food was very good, but overpriced. The mac & cheese which they seem to make a big deal about at the restaurant was universally rated as "good, but dry" by the diners in our party. That being said, everyone in our party enjoyed our meals (I had the pork chop) including my son who had grilled chicken w/steamed rice. However, we went here because we saw it on Find Me GF. IMO, this restaurant is no more accommodating to Celiacs than a McDonalds or Burger King.
