    Staff was knowledgeable about being gluten free. The food was really good. I was able to eat a fish fry and try fried mushrooms.

    Finally, breaded catfish, seafood and hush puppies that you’d never dream were gluten-free! Laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere, fast and friendly service, and delicious food made for a relaxed, delightful experience. My daughter, who has no food allergies, had the catfish sandwich dinner and I had gf fried shrimp. They serve brownies, cookies and beignets for dessert, but I had no room after my meal. The owner took the time to sit down with us and tell my daughter the origin of beignets, and even made her one at no charge to try. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Fish House and hope to return the next time we visit Louisville!

    Omg, this was SO delicious! I had a serious foodgasim! I almost never eat fries food so this was a long anticipated treat. I got the tilapia combo. The fries were fresh and yummy. The coleslaw was unique but oh so good. Oh man, the fish... the fish y’all! SOOO GOOD! The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere has such a fun and funky feel to it. They have a designated kitchen area and separate fryers. I think I’m going to have to try to make The Fish House a monthly treat!

    I had excellent lightly breaded haddock, cod, and fries today. Lots of fish choices, no chicken gf, just an fyi. You can get fried or broiled if you want. Not salty or covered in a million spices, very tasty. They have a dedicated fryer and are super friendly too! So happy to have found this place for a quick lunch while passing through Louisville on my way home to Chicago area. Thank you!

    What an absolutely amazing place for fish. So glad we stopped. Everyone was super friendly and the food was by far the best gluten free fried food we’ve ever had. It’s a bit of a drive from Madison, WI but the next time we’re in the Louisville area, we’ll be sure to come back!

    I have eaten here twice with no issues. They have a separate area in the kitchen with gluten free batter and fryers. Try the hush puppies and onion rings. So good!! The scrod is everyone's favorite fish in my family. They also have Jalapeño tartar in addition to regular which is fun.

    We were in Louisville for the weekend and I was craving seafood, but not wanting to pay the high price tag associated with a chain for mediocre food, so we took a risk on The Fish House not knowing what to expect. It was BEYOND AMAZING! It was packed, so we knew the food must be good. The young lady at the counter was extremely knowledge and crossed out the items on the menu that couldn't be made gluten free. We ordered the fried scrod, fried shrimp, fried mushrooms, hushpuppies, fries, green beans and coleslaw. Everything fried came out piping hot, crispy, and delicious! It was very obvious that it had just been dipped and fried fresh. Everyone at our table enjoyed the food and my daughter even ate the fish (which at 2 years old, she never usually likes fish). Every single person we encountered that worked there was very helpful and nice. Yes, it is a hole in the wall and yet, that somehow adds to the charm. No frills or gimmicks...just really good food. It was truly a great experience and I didn't get glutened (I am non-celiac but break out in hives on my face, so it's easy to tell when I have been glutened). I will definitely be back everytime I come to Louisville! Superb!

    Gluten free fried fish! Wow! It's awesome! And the fries, fried mushrooms, and onion rings were all fantastic. Such a treat! They cook all the gluten free items in their dedicated potato fryer to keep them free of cross-contamination. By the looks of this place, you'd never know that they have anything gluten free and it isn't indicated anywhere on the menu, so I'm so glad to have found it on Find Me Gluten Free. I will eat at this place anytime I'm in Louisville!

    They are aware of ingredients. I have multiple allergies and I didn't have any issues. If you only have a gluten allergy, you are in luck! They have a dedicated gluten free fryer and can serve you fried fish and even onion rings!

    It was delicious! Very knowledgeable about GF, dedicated fryers! And they had just about anything on the menu, you could get GF. It is a homemade restaurant at fast food speeds. I actually got GF fish and chips and hush puppies! What a treat for a celiac! All was delish! And you could pick whatever fish you wanted! Highly recommend! It looks like a hole in the wall but it is a diamond in the rough!

    I like to find new/different/local when I travel for work. This is all of those. You can get your seafood GF anytime and sometimes they even do hush puppies. I didn't get to try the puppies but the fish and shrimp were great. What a treat and will be back sometime for sure. The owner is warm and welcoming, it will be hard to find counter service type seafood offering like this anywhere else.

    Fantastic gluten free options, one of the few places I've found in the country that serves deep fried Gulf Coast shrimp. Be sure to ask which items are gluten free and let them know when you order.

    My husband has Celiac's Disease. We were planning a trip to Louisville and came across The Fish House on suggested GF websites. The staff was AMAZING, the ower ( I believe) even knew the town we were from. They assured us that just about everything on the menu is in fact GF. My husband was able to have fried fish for the first time since being diagnosed. He has the scrod, fries, and shrimp as well as an order of fried mushrooms. Please he DID NOT GET SICK. We will forever stop here when in Louisville.

    I was beyond pleased with the customer service! The staff was very friendly and explained the menu in detail and said that most anything could be made Gluten free. I would highly recommend this place to anyway suffering with a gluten allergy! I had the fried scrod, hush puppies (yes they were GF) and french fries. I will definitely be back!

    I was on a business trip. Looked at the app for places. This one popped up and reviews were great. I totally agree. Excellent fish. They explained I could have practically anything as GF. Fries and even hush puppies! I had Fried Haddock dinner, it comes on a simple paper plate stacked high. Plastic forks etc. The place is a dive but who cares the food it great. Highly recommend. They even had an Angry Orchard hard cider to go with it.

    Fabulous !!! Great family run fish house! Owner was awesome and took the time on a busy Friday night to explain the menu and gluten free options. GF Food was awesome: fried fish, fried oysters, fried shrimp, mushrooms, and hush puppies (special) - took the leftovers to enjoy tomorrow. First time visitors made to feel like good ole customers... will definitely be back often.

    Great place to enjoy fried fish and fries. They have a dedicated fryer along with gluten free breading for fried fish. Prices are reasonable for the portions! Don't let the hole in the wall appearance fool you!

    A nice find as we were traveling through. Not too far off the interstate and tons of fried GF options (sorry arteries). Had the fried scrod (cod), fries and fried mushrooms. As other reviews state, there's no indications of GF when you walk in and look at the menu board, the decor is a little dive bar-esque and had it not been for this app, we'd have never looked twice at it as we drove by but it's worth the stop! The owner explained their GF fryer and was helpful and patient as I stood there slacked jawed at all my options. Can't wait till we drive through Louisville again.

    Good food, prepared well... decor could use some work but the food is good enough to keep your focus off the somewhat dingy atmosphere. Hush puppies are not GF but everything else is. they even have a dedicated fryer.

Great atmosphere and sweet tea to boot. Oh, can't forget to mention the amazing jalepeño tartar sauce! Can't say enough good things. Love this place.

    Wow-pretty awesome to find a local "diner" experience with great gluten free options. The fried fish was very good with a dedicated fryer. The owner to orders and knew what was up with everything. The coleslaw was delicious too. And the prices were pretty much amazing. Will definitely be back... as well others as there was a steady line of people ordering the entire time we were there.
