    I very clearly described celiac disease and cross contamination to the waitress, asked her about what options were safe, and asked her to tell the kitchen to treat it as an allergy order (which are often the magic words for kitchens). I even asked to make sure their bacon wasn’t drained on bread, and then my meal came out with toast on the plate. When I asked the waitress about it, she said “oh, I probably should have said no bread.” Since it seemed like she might just take the bread off the plate, I explained that it would need to be remade because any crumbs or residue on the plate could cross contaminate the food. Ultimately, after conversations with both the waitress and manager I could not get comfortable that they understood cross contamination well enough to prepare food safely for someone with celiac disease.

    I also was only offered Salmon as an GF option. I had salmon the night prior, so I wanted something different. After reviewing the menu, I asked to have the chef make the shrimp & scallops and forgo the pasta. Waiter came back with attitude to offer me the salmon only. Eventually I got them to grill me the fish. It was embarrassing. They are now under new ownership, so I am hoping they will be offering more Gluten Free options.

    The food was good but there was an attitude that I was being a bother. No GF menu. You pick & they tell you if it has gluten. Screw that, I can eat anywhere and play guessing games. But I am highly sensitive and I did not get sick. I wouldn't go back.

    Waitress was not super-knowledgeable about what was gluten free, but she was sure about the salmon, so I ordered that. It was fabulous. And hugs to the chef for having a gluten free dessert! Nice restaurant with nice atmosphere. I recommend it.

    Driving thru Lewes on my way to drop my daughter off at college...Stopped here on a whim... I can not express how WONDERFUL the food was and the Extremely Friendly staff! They did not have a Gluten Free Menu... But knew what was safe to eat and very helpful.. The owner was there and said we can accommodate you and your allergy needs! The waiter was the best! .... So good! My daughter said this is "Our" New spot... I really have to say ...What a great way to send my college bound baby off!
