    Amazing! Food was great, many gluten free options including the lobster bisque. They do not have a dedicated fryer, so avoid anything fried. Also had a GF "allergy" brownie.

    First And foremost, to my gluten free bread loving pals The Boathouse has the softest best tasting gluten free bread! Oh and do not forget to ask for their amazing gluten free brownie dessert. When there I didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything. Also, the staff and chef are very knowledgeable about gluten free options. They definitely are big on food allergy and attending to their guests’ needs. The chef even came out to our table to go over some menu choices that they can be alter to make gluten free. Definitely will be going back!

    Came here for lunch on prior FindMeGF recs. Didn’t disappoint. Waitress was nice enough to have Chef Dave Lambert come out and speak with me. He assured me and told me what was safe and what wasn’t. I ordered the Salmon entree and it was delicious. Great food. Did not get sick. No separate GF menu. They also do not have a dedicated GF fryer.

    Dinner was amazing! The waiter was very helpful - I shared I have celiac and he brought the chef out to review the entire menu with me and take my order. I had the lobster bisque (so hard to find gf) which was delicious. I also had a salad and the firecracker shrimp which they made gf. They do not have a dedicated fryer but they will customize anything. They also said they have a huge gf brownie for dessert. My family loved their food as well- great service, food and experience!

    Had a wonderful experience. Ask for Frank for a server, he was fantastic! He brought out the chef who took our order and was willing to customize about anything. (Yes, that’s right! The chef literally wrote down my order). The server made sure I knew what I could and could not try from other people’s plates and double checked everything. Fantastic dining experience with great seafood. Dessert is limited but it was a house made brownie sundae which I do not think I have ever encountered.

    By far this was the best service I’ve ever had since I started eating gluten free. The chef came out to go over the menu with me and I decided on the mahi mahi with vegetables. It was seasoned perfectly. I’m also dairy free and they easily accommodated that as well. I had the crab and avocado appetizer which was great! The shocker was that I got to have dessert! They had a gluten and dairy free warm brownie that was DELICIOUS! Thank u Chef Dion!!!

    Holy smokes! This place rolls out the red carpet for gluten free patrons, even at the bar! Chef came over and discussed options. Had a crab cake for the first time in years. The chef let me know it would take longer than usual and it was worth the wait. The chocolate cake was phenomenal as well.

    Incredible! The sous chef personally came out and took our complicated order (other allergies including dairy, soy, sunflower, eggs) and made every meal to perfection. He then told us about his chocolate cake he called "free of everything." Our son had his first ever restaurant dessert! They had high quality attention to detail and made our experience unforgettable!

    Most of menu is GF or can be modified to accommodate (though stay away from fried foods). Chef came out to discuss all options. Yummy food. My carpaccio appetizer came out with bread on plate but waiter apologized and immediately corrected order. All other GF food we ordered were clearly marked as having an allergy.

    Absolutely delightful. Better than a GF menu, the chef comes out & works with you on a safe GF dinner. Also, they have GF bread!

    Great food, outstanding service. When ordering, the chef will come to the table to determine what your dietary restrictions are. He then reviews what on the menu could be prepared to your needs. I had the pasta dish with spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes. It was very good. Our server was overly accommodating and attentive.

    Food was wonderful and there were many GF options available. After we were seated I let the waitress know that I needed GF. She got the chef who came to my table and went over the menu with me to discuss my GF options. He then took my order and prepared it himself to guarantee it would be GF. My food was even delivered on separate tray to avoid contamination. I have celiac and no reaction.
